Re: Nylon Plastic Tension Rod Washers...
I'm opposite, I take them off. I do like how smooth it makes it feel for tuning. But I'm anal about wanting every vibration to pass to the shell and not get stopped somewhere. So who's more anal? I don't think I can tell by stick feel if a drum has them or not, never really tested for that. I'm impressed that you can tell a difference.
Man we do get into some minutia here don't we?
The best way to do art, is to dispense with good and bad...and just get on with it.
