Re: Hardware: my diva requests
I agree with you on all points.
Lightweight single braced gear-less hardware is a wonderful thing.
Most hardware manufacturers offer a set screw lock so gear-less tilters won't slip once set to desired position.
My fav single pedal is a Tama/Camco with a wire frame. I do understand the need for flat pedal bases for doubles though.
I use small hardware bags that are 36" long x15" round.
I wish that someone would make a sturdy lightweight throne with a backrest.
All of my thrones are heavy. A screw height adjuster works well but I do admit that the gas ones are more convenient.
Yes, knowing the tube specs on hardware is a good idea for those who want to mix and match.
I kind of like old drums:)
