Re: Yamaha Drums

You need to re-read what I wrote.:)..I never wrote that the nouveau lug was self-aligning ... I stated that the hook lug was self aligning (by design), which makes it a better overall design..."both...

Re: Yamaha Drums

The one difference between the hook and the nouveau lug is the hook has a self aligning feature (based on the hook shape), which IMO makes it an overall better design .. Both are nice though...
