Re: To Port or not to Port...
If our own ears didnt like variety, there would only be one head. theres a reason each manufacturer has a number of heads to choose from. I recently bought a new ludwig snare and it came with a coated Ludwig head. It looks and feels like a remo emporer. I was about to change it to a Vintage Emperor but when I tuned it, it was perfect so im using the Ludwig head for this saturdays gig. As far as porting like this thread was in the first place, my bass had a small rough 4 inch hole already in it from the previouse owner. I just bought a Kick Port 2 for it. Mostly because I got a chrome one and it looks good on the black head with silver sparkle drums.
