Default Options on bass drum claws

Hey guys,

I know this is purely on looks but which do you prefer out of the two pictures? Doing up my kit all over and not sure which looks better. Also thinking about using T tension rods such as these.

Thanks,

Option 1




Option 2

Yes, option1 is very traditional and that's why i do like it. For the "coolclaw", personally don't think its that cool per say, wouldn't have it on my kit but could look good.

I like the butterflies. As a matter of fact, I got a baggie of 20 in the basement right now for my new kit. I like the old-school kind of look.

If you want a vintage look go with number 1, I tend to like to see more of the drum or hoop so I like # 2. My Gretsch Renowns have the #2 look.

Think I've come to a decision. Going to stay with the modern look partly cause the vintage doesn't really fit the rest of my kit and don't fit the hoops that well aka leave marks/damage the edge.

I like 2 better, as it is cleaner.

I do think the cool claws are pimp. In a few years, someone will get the stroke of genius to create all kinds of funky bass drum claws. I would love to see a selection of them.
