    Stacking Drums During Storage?

    Do you think it's bad to stack your drums on top of one another during storage? I'm thinking maybe it's bad for the bearing edge? I put a piece of plywood over the bass drum rim, but i'm thinking that's putting stress on the lugs. Maybe i'm paranoid... :?

    My first experiment recording my kit. All the specs and mic info are attached to the Youtube video. All in all, I don't think it sounds too bad. No EQ at all.

    Trick Pro-1v problems

    So I decided to move from a single pedal back to a double. I sold my dw 9000, and purchased a Trick Pro 1-v double from GC for about 680.00 bucks. (That's WITH a 10% discount.) When it arrived, I was very excited until I realized... The Trick Pro-1v double doesn't fit a 20" bass drum! I...
