Re: limping back from a dogged afternoon/new dents
I had never used any patches before about two weeks ago. I play double pedal using a DW 9002 series. I don't play with the plastic hitting the head, at least not yet. But I figured that a little extra protection might save me a headache at a gig sometime.
I use a Remo FALAM Slam patch. Looking at the different products out there, I decided to go with this one because I had heard it before and liked the way it sounded on another bass drum. It sounds a little punchy to my ears. And, I was not a HUGE patch. It is just the right size to do the job. It is not too or much of a tone suck either.
