Re: Ported or Non Ported Bass Reso?
I for one prefer the feel of a ported head, mostly because I don't like the rebound of a non ported head. It just doesn't suit the way I play.
Although I do like the sound of unported heads and the way they BOOM, the way you can feel the bass resonating.
I've been experimenting with really small holes on the reso head, trying to get maximum resonance but still getting that ported feel.
It's all about what suits your playing style / taste.
