Default My Only Kit

(FIXED) My drum kit which is in my basement: The bass drum head isn't there because the hoop is messed up...

If they're files on your computer you can just 'attach' them here when you make a post too.

So... Do you just play stuff without a bass drum? Do you used your floor tom as a bass?

1. I play just without the bass drum right now (Sadly).
2. My drums a kind of old, so I wanted to clean the shells. So, I took apart the bass drum. When I took the hoop off the wraping on one side litterally fell off. I need to glue it with something....

If you mean that the drum wrap is coming off, then there should be tons of info around here as to how to glue it back on. Or you could just put the head back on, loose wrap and all. My first drums were cheap and the wraps sucked, so I ended up taking them all off and wrapping them with fur.

If you mean that the little decorative wrap on the hoop came off, then I really wouldn't worry about it. A spot of rubber cement should do it.

If you mean that one of the wooden plies of the hoop is separating, then that's more serious, and you'll need some wood glue and lots of clamp-age.

Also without head on your bass drum, the shell is under way more stress. Those toms are heavy and the shell is weak without hoops and heads keeping it round.

Fix it yet?

Also, what specifically was/is the problem, and what glue did you get or plan to get?

Well the glue is braced and is drying now. The problem was the wrapping itself was coming off of the hoop (it has wrapping).

You mean that the wrap was peeling off of the shell. The cylinder portion of a drum is called a shell.

If you have a band of wrap on the bass drum hoop it is called an inlay.

And now you do! Good luck with the repair, and make sure to let us know how it goes! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

It worked! I fixed the hoop and put together the bass drum, and it worked.

Glad that it worked out. Your kit doesn't appear to be in bad shape at all.
You could easily order some hoops and tension rods for the toms and put resonate heads on them.

Also, the fact that yesterday I got double bass drum pedals, I need to get a patch. Also it makes the bass drum sound better...

Yes, by all means, make your studio comfortable and neat. It will help you with your playing. You should be at peace in the surroundings that you play your drums in.
Set up your kit in configurations that make you comfortable as you play it. Experiment with placement of drums and cymbals until you find the place for everything that allows you to play how you like to play.
