An early TAMA original the Gong Bass Drum uses a 22" head mounted Tympani style on a 20" shell with no bottom head. This design produces a thunderous low-end sound with excellent sustain characteristic of the large Taiko drums of ancient Japan.
The Gong Bass uses a 7mm thick Starclassic Maple shell, and the Quick-Lock Tom Brackets allow for fast set-up.
*Gong Bass Drums is available in Piano Black (PBK) finish only.

Quick-Lock Tom Brackets (US.PAT.NO.9269337)
The "Quick-Lock" tom brackets have some very distinctive, ground-breaking features.
First and foremost, as their name suggests, these brackets allow for quick and easy setup and breakdown. But the real unique feature of these brackets is that once the drum is positioned on a tom stand, there is no need to attach and adjust separate memory locks to save the setting. By simply sliding the switch on the tom bracket, the bracket separates into two parts. When the drum is removed for breakdown, the "memory lock" portion remains on the tom stand or floor tom leg. This saves your positioning and makes the next set up quick and easy.
These Quick-Lock tom brackets have some hidden acoustic benefits as well. Following the same principle of reducing vibration transference from drums to the tom stands, these tom brackets also employ rubber lining to further isolate the drum and enhance resonance.
