Catalina Maples w/RIMS Mounts


I have the 12" and 13" mounted on the bass drum with the Gretsch RIMS isolation mounts. The 12" mount rattles when I hit the bass drum. All the plastic shock mounts are in place. I swear nothing is missing. I have taken the Mount off, removed tension rods, re-assembled, put it all back together, re-tuned the drum, remounted it and I still have the rattle. When I hold the rim it stops, so it is the mount for sure. The 13" tom is fine. Has anyone ever experienced this ? This kit is only 2 yrs old. It is driving me nuts. Any help would be appreciated. thx TJ

Does it rattle when you hit it off the mount or away from the kit?

You might also take the heads off and check to see if all the lug screws are tight.

Der is right! Might want to check lugs individually if they've got springs, also check the rivets on the rims mount, they've been known to come loose!
