Re: Questions about kick drum heads

3 mm! That's quite thick and very likely to impede or affect the sound of the bass drum head. It vibrates to produce resonance, so by necessity is quite thin 10 or 15 mil at most.

Most drummers...

Re: Pretty frustrated with adjusting to an acoustic kit

the other possible way to try and increae the response of your 24 bass drum is to not port, and tune medium high. Lots of rebound, perhaps like the harder E-kit surface.

Re: Poll: do you double bass?

#2 - so much to learn and do with a single pedal I'd just never consider moving to two pedals.

Re: It's the room not the kit !

OK so here's a question -what's your approach when the 'room' is outside, say open air, wedding etc.? Tune higher or lower?

Re: Songs that make you do a double-take when you sit to down to play them

hey Jim The real story is Jimmy Miller (producer) played the cowbell in the studio, he came in early on the start, so the drums (Charlie) came in out of sync. A beautiful mistake but they liked the...

Re: Questions about kick drum heads

for a 20" drum head you want it slightly smaller, say 19.5. i agree you should buy at least one head to experiment.

Re: Spousal Static - A mini Rant

I find the sentiment on this rather negative, but it does not have to be. This could be a step up in your relationship if you come out of it with some consensus and an understanding of one anothers'...

Re: Singers dragging the tempo

Here, here , indeed! I wish our singer would slow down. I record rehearsals, to point it out all the time, but nothing is ever down about it.

You can only roll your eyes.

Re: Louder with or without port?

No measurements. To my own ear , I'd agree with you, that a port reduces some of the lower end frequencies you get out of the bass drum.

Many/some cities have rental rehearsal spaces, some with PA. So you can rent the space for 3 hours or so, and everybody chips in. Nice neutral ground.
If not that maybe a night in your garage to...
