Default 2 ply ported reso head: anyone?

Hi! I was wondering if someone have any experience with 2ply reso heads, I think that it could work because it will reduce the sustain and increase the low frecuencies but the main problem is that I like mi BD reso head ported. I thougth that I could melt the hole with a hot can so that the heat melt the head and seal the space between them, I've seen it and it looks easy to do but I don't know how is going to work in a 2 ply head.

the main question is if I'm going to ruin the 2ply head for melting a hole in it.

thanks

Get a kickport for the hole once its cut and it will keep the head together.

that's a good idea but I live in argentina and kick ports worth $110, so they are waaaay out of my budget

What the ell! Might as well put KICKPORT's in your snare and toms too


You won't ruin a 2 ply by melting a hole in it, you won't even need reinforcement, the 'hot can' should cauterize the edge of the plys.

do you have a sound file or can you describe the sound. and also, how did you make the hole (cut/melt)?

its a big warm punch... dont have a sound file though, sorry.



put one of these on your reso head, not on the edge, probably about 3 inches away, wherever you want (probably the side that has the least amount of stands). if you put it more to the top it'll have a slightly different sound than more to the bottom.

get a sharp knife... stab the skin and cut around the ring.
