Re: Backline Drums, What is behind the scene
I've had Pinstripes get hoop ruts in them from being stacked for less than 12 hours. The state of the heads installed on kits that get stacked around at Guitar Center is proof enough for me that, especially when you have 4 or more drums in the stack, the constant pressure applied over time is not good at all for the heads. It does seem, though, like the company will put on whatever heads the artist desires, so I imagine those stock heads get put on when the kit comes back.
And I can hit my drums just fine, thank you.
