Re: The action and feel of a drumhead?

If you prefer the feel of mesh then use a mesh head E kit and get someone to sample the sounds from you favorite acoustic kit tuned up with your favorite heads.

Re: Personal Monitoring "Setup" for a Singing Drummer

The p4hw is wired for xlr, then comes with adapters, you would only need an xlr Y cable and a 1/4 F to 1/4 F coupler, or just make your own xlr Y cable with 1 female trs end.

Re: Personal Monitoring "Setup" for a Singing Drummer

I really like the body pack instead of a mixer, a lot easier to make adjustments, mid song if necessary. I dont think you really need 4 inputs, 2 should be fine, 1 for vocals and another for the FOH...

Re: Personal Monitoring "Setup" for a Singing Drummer

I am a singing drummer. I use a Shure p4hw and a set of ear buds with the foam sleeves that you squeeze and then they swell back up in your ears. This gives good isolation as well as keeping them...

Re: Drum Dial accuracy?

Well that depends, very accurate for making head tension equal, problem is this has jack s**t to do with making them even pitch. Inconsistencies in mylar and manufacturing processes render this tool...

Re: CASES

Even a tuning fork would be more accurate/useful/less time consuming than a tension watch or a drum dial?
