Re: dw Bass Drum Riser
I tried the counterweight also and it didn't work for me.
I understand why it should work but I just couldn't feel it.
I tried just about everything before I settled on using a lift.
Most drummers that I see with an 18 inch bass do use a lifter.
One other thing that I like about using a riser is that it brings the bass drum up to a suitable level for a hoop mounted cow bell/jam block, etc.
I kind of like old drums:)
