Re: Why should I port the bass drum?

Is having a hole going to make it lower in pitch?

What about a 5" hole? Would that be much different from a 4"?

Why should I port the bass drum?

I was wondering what is the difference in having a hole in the bass drum besides being able to mic it easier? Is there a whole different sound that it produces? What are the pros and cons of having...

Re: Tension Rods Stuck In Bass Lug HELP!!

Re: Tension Rods Stuck In Bass Lug HELP!!

It might not be coming out because the threads are all lined up. If you had a lug in the socket can you just pull it out. What you might want to do is take a drill and take your smallest bit. Then...

Re: Want second opinion on a first buy.

The sticks that come with sets aren't usually that great. I would suggest when you buy your set that you get a pair (or two) of sticks. Some good well known brands are Vic Firth, Promark, Regal...

Re: MOVING (HELP!) Shipping drums cymbals hardware

If you need boxes you can go to your local U-haul (or similar). They have a couple different sizes. A small can probably work for our hardware, a large will probably work for your bass drum.

Re: MOVING (HELP!) Shipping drums cymbals hardware
