Re: HARDWARE DIY/MODS/REPAIRS THREAD
looking at my dw 2002 pedals - they really have gigantic base plates! Just a thought: What about trimming the base plates at the sides for less material/more convenience without sacrificing stability? In fact, the dw base plates could be trimmed pretty much and still be quite stable.
OK, back to topic: My "snare" is a 2nd (rather: 3rd hand) marching tom. The previous owner tried attaching snare wires at the bottom by drilling holes at one side and using cords and duct tape. I didn't care because I always have a practice pad on top of the "snare" anyway. At the weekend I decided to rework this and turn the tom into a snare. I do have to buy a real snare sometime but for now I'm ok with this makeshift solution.
