It's off center by an inch or so. Is this an issue ? I use different pedals, and wonder if this is not good to have different pedals striking the head in different spots. Thanks for your input !
How big is your bass drum? Depending on the size, it may not be a huge deal. I use and 18, so I use a riser to hit closer in the center (I have the falcon and it is great). If you're playing a 22 and really laying into it, it's probably not a huge deal.
