Re: Ludwig Lug Splay Solution

I noticed this as well which leads me to think it's more the new triple-flanged hoops than the diameter of the shell as the cause. I would think an undersized shell would cause some degree of splay...

Re: Ludwig Lug Splay Solution

You actually got me thinking about something, Les. The difference between perfection and tolerance.

What I mean is that a kit could be as near to perfect as possible in implementation and still...

Re: Ludwig Lug Splay Solution

Re: Why are we addicted to vintage drums?

Re: Why are we addicted to vintage drums?

Re: Shell thickness revisited!

Thanks :-) So could there be a situation where the drum was "quiet" but projected well? Or is volume and projection tied together? And when speaking about punch, are we really talking about...
