Re: To Port or not to Port...
If you do decide to port it, you probably don't want to do it like this - LOL
When I bought this bop kit used, someone had cut a fairly big hole in it, and then put one of those Holz (sp?) things on it. Not sure if it's due to the small size or what, but it rattled and buzzed like crazy.
I thought I would do a temporary fix, and cut most of the head out. Haven't gotten around to getting a new head for it yet, but despite the really goofy look, it sounds good now.
Before and after pics. The second pic also shows a size comparison of the 18 w/riser (on the left) compared to the 20" (right side):
