Re: KickPort D-Port?
Saw those tom ports 2 or 3 shows ago at NAMM, I assumed they gave up on them. Somehow, in contrast to using it on a kick, altering a smaller head that really needs to resonate as part of an open tom sound, just doesn't seem like a good idea. Let's say on a 13" tom, that smaller port takes up a lot of real estate, and definitely affects the resonance of that head. Of course, the resulting sound may be desirable, in the same way putting a pillow or blanket inside a kick was once frowned upon, yet became a very common thing. Then again, a kick is intended to make a different sound than a tom...
