Re: Converting a 28 marching bass drum to drum set How hard is it?

Also depends what type of hoops it has.

If ity has wood hoops, you're in business! Though 28'' Hoops might be a bit pricey if theyre not already on there!

Re: Yamaha Hip Gig purchase help!

They sell those same kits under the 'sonic drive' label in Australia.
