    Interesting fill on Mahavishnu track...

    Any ideas what Billy is playing at 3:10? https://youtu.be/aZN8Du1kh2Y?t=190 - I've never quite been able to figure out exactly what this figure is, some combination of rudiments, but it's always escaped me exactly what.

    Fastest rebound kick head at lowest tuning?

    I usually use a Remo Weatherking Bass for my kick drum head and I have it at a fairly low tuning, but I like to get a really fast rebound for quick single pedal work. If the drum head is too tight, I find it rebounds too far and gets harder to get in the pocket for groove playing, and it feels...

    Low, non-triple-flanged 6" 4-lug hoops?

    I'm looking for some Octoban hoops that are preferably not Tama replacement parts (too expensive) that are low enough for octobans and have no extra lip that exceeds the top of the actual head, do any aftermarket manufacturers make these?

    Cowbell kick-mount too short?

    I have a Meinl MCSTBD Standard Cowbell Bass Drum Holder, and I'm finding the stalk is too short. It's about 16cm/6.2inches tall and I need one that comes a little higher up. Any recommendations for holders that are higher?

    Shining the pedalboard?

    I cleaned my DW 5000 with some sticky-stuff remover, and while it has cleaned off the dirt and grease, it's also made it a lot more tract and my shoe sole doesn't glide over it as well as it once did. What would be recommended for giving the actual pedal board a smooth and slidey feel?
