Default Re: NDD! My Classic Maples are here!

I now have a bass brake attached to my drum rug. The bass isn't going anywhere now.

I bolted a one foot length of 4x4" treated wood to the front of my drum carpet. So now there are four bolts that go through a metal section on the underside of the carpet and are secured with nuts on the topside. Low-tech and effective. The wood only makes contact with two of my bass drum claws. I just didn't want someone throwing a cinder block in front of my new bass drum to have it chew on the pretty hoops.

Next time, I might just do this for where the spurs lay. Essentially the same thing, but on a smaller scale on both sides of the drum.
