Agreed. I really wish there was a "RemoSpecialist" to chat to. Although I fear "LudwigSpecialist" may cop some flak if he dared rear his head.

No need for one. Not enough hair to dry.

And FWIW, seating a drum head does not entail "shrinking the collar to fit the drum" despite what I've read earlier in this thread. It's more to do with ensuring head contact to the bearing edge.
