Re: Rods from shish kebab sticks?
Definitely NOT insanity. In fact, a late-night kebab party with many brewskis probably led to the idea in the first place.
If you use tape, try to wrap the dowels where they wonít be hitting rim shots, or youíll end up with tape goo all over your rim. Also, maybe sand a bit of a round edge onto the tips.
And let us know how it works, ícause Iím not too thrilled with the price of the prefab dowel thingies either.
