Just found this nice little video of the new updated octobans. They finally got rid of that complicated mounting system and slapped the pre-2015 Starclassic floortom bracket on. I dig it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=...mp;feature=youtube_gdata

Great! Not having owned Octobans, can those be retrofitted onto older ones, or is the hole pattern different?

That's great if you want to mount just two or side by side but it will be very awkward if you want to maintain the classic four setup.

The hole pattern is different. You can still do it if you are willing to redrill a hole or 2 in the old ones.

^^^This makes sense for someone setting them up more traditionally(in regard to octobans). This is the first I've seen this new mount, so I have yet to see if anything else will change. For the sake of originality, I'm hoping that TAMA decides to make some kind of 4 Octo stand with 4 correctly placed L rods. That would make the most sense!

Or maybe you could get a percussion stand/clamp mount to hold a bunch in a row, haha!

The only positive thing about this for me is that I hope it means the MTB30 will remain in production.

Something like this with two L arms and a double tom mount in the third hole
might work....

http://www.gibraltarhard...&sid=383&cid=31

seems like a lot of hardware though.

Tama needs to make a 4 way Octo stand for the new Octo mounts.

IMHO

Agree Yak, it could still be similar to the old one but with 4 mounting rods to fit the MTB30's.
