Chicago Drum Show: Gauger Percussion

Because of its steely focus on suspension mounting systems, the Gauger Percussion booth stood out among the sea of custom drum builders and vintage collectors that dominated the 2011 Chicago Drum Show. And this year the inventor of the RIMS mounting system pulled a new trick out of its hat with the Flex Frame – a suspension system for drummers who like to incorporate snare stand-mounted toms into their setups rather than using standard tom mounts. The difference in sound couldn’t have been more dramatic.
