Default backwards E to A conversion.

I recently saw some video of me playing with my Ekit and, the kit looked lame. You shouldn't be able to see the drummers legs.

So, I just cut some slots in an old kick and, instant A kit.All it needs is a logo and I'm set :)

(that is black spray paint from??? on the kick head)

Bass drum definitely helps to "beef up" the look of an E kit (be careful or you'll be buying a full acoustic set and converting that to E drums before you know it)! : )

I had a similar situation. Now my Tama Bubinga is converted to electronic. Look at even buying a XM 18" Bass Drum and use that.

Kick drum as was said make a big difference to the visual aspect

I've been thinking of it for a while now but this might get me by :)

I've gotten really spoiled by the easy transportation of the E kit. One easy trip for the rack and one trip for the two cases that contain the rest of the gear.

Ha ha - until you put a black or white resonant head on that bass drum, you can still see your legs.

You're off to a good start though.
