    What happens if i take the wraps off my drums.

    Kind of a tangent but, my cat lives in the garage with my drums. I feel like he'd climb on the bass drum more. I saw a set of little scratches that look like he slid off and never tried to again. With bare wood he would probably be able to use his claws and mess it up, looks wise.

    What's your latest purchase?

    I got an evans calftone batter and reso heads for all my drums during cyber monday. And a hazy 300 + puresound equalizer snare wire for the snare reso. Was around $200 for everything.

    Rubber strip that came with drum kit?

    I was looking at my hoop and it is slightly crimped on the bottom where the pedal attaches and theres a tiny scratch where it bolts down. Hopefully that doesn't effect sound.

    Re-introducing myself - Hello from Boise, Idaho

    Woah, treefort music festival sounds really cool. Hopefully they have some stuff that is chill with dry drums. Neo soul, and psych sound great. Gig's and 12th fret sound like good spots to check out. Thanks for your support. Idaho has been awesome.

    Rubber strip that came with drum kit?

    That sounds about right. It is in fact a metal hoop. I use a rug so nothing moves or falls off. However, if I adjust my bass drum the double pedal does usually falls off.

    Rubber strip that came with drum kit?

    I wish I could post a photo, but I don't know what happened to it. I had it sitting on the top edge of m bass drum, it kinda fit there. It was probably less than an inch tall. I think a guard from the pedal sounds on the money though.

    Rubber strip that came with drum kit?

    My drum kit came with a mysterious rubber strip. It was 3" long, 1"wide , 1" tall. It had a flat bottom and grooves on top. I believe it had something to do with the bass drum. Perhaps it went on bottom, to prevent sliding and spread its weight from the bass pedal. After a year, I have...

    Post your Tune-Bot settings

    I have a Ludwig Accent Drive. Mine are low tuned, low resonance, alot of cotton balls, and some moon gels. My bass has AF patches, a sheet, and a pillow. I understand it's not for everybody, but I really like it. My full set of calftones will be here on friday. Maybe I'll change my tuning...

    Idaho represent. I've been stationed at Mountain Home AFB for a year now. It's a great state. Any cool drum related places in Boise? I've been to guitar center and some pawn shops.

    I'm out of gift ideas for myself

    "Maybe a drummers helmet in case you fall off your throne?" That's hilarious. Someone, somewhere, at some time certainly did need one. Like

    New drummer with no musical talent what so ever.

    With about a year under my belt I'm nothing to write home about either. I use songsterr and youtube to learn and progress. YouTube has "drumless tracks". They help me calibrate my rhythm, expand genres, and most importantly are fun. Then again, I'm no expert by any means.

    Heads For DRY Sound

    Ended up getting a full set of calftones batter and reso, with a hazy 300 for the snare side. I got the calftone emad and eq4 for the bass. Luckily cbphoto mentioned those, they sounded great on youtube.

    Heads For DRY Sound

    The hydraulics are really nice. For not much more I could actually get those instead.

    Heads For DRY Sound

    I like my drums dryer than prison pork chops. I'm currently tuned to least resonance, cotton balled to taste, and moon gelled. I'm gonna get new heads. GC sells a pack with: 22" emad1, 10", 12", & 16" g2s, and a 14" genera dry snare batter. I would like to add ec2s for toms(g2s become the...
