Bulkier and heavier than traditional mounts, they generally require [[drum case]]s one size larger.
== History ==
The earliest rim mounts were developed by [[Gary Gauger (drummer)|]] and first became available in 1980 as aftermarket accessories, under the registered name , standing for [[Resonance Isolation Mounting System]]. It was more than ten years before major manufacturers began to offer them as an extra cost option. These days they are offered by most major manufacturers, and common on high-end kits, particularly for high-volume situations.
