Re: Turning a Floor Tom into a Kick Drum - tips?

In my case, cost. Riser was $36. And I needed it more because I needed to attach a pedal to the drum somehow. A wood hoop is $50, at least. Add T's and claws, now you've got a hundred buck...

Re: Struggles of Short Drummer and 5-Piece with Offset Toms

Glad you're dialing things in. It takes a while, sometimes, to find out what you want. Or need. Fortunately, there are a lot of options available, as far as gear goes.

Re: Latin Percussion???

Maybe look into electronic hand percussion devices, like the Roland HandSonic, Korg wave drum, ATV aFrame. They won't beat up your hands like traditional hand percussion.

Re: Jojo Mayer - Questions

I saw him waaay before he had his own sticks and pedal. And he was a monster. At a winter NAMM, and he was demo'ing Sonor Giant Step pedals. Countless hours of practice, that's how he got there.

Re: Buying a second hand 60's Ludwig drum set
