The one thing that's made the most difference is the TNR Products Little Booty Shakers on a tom mounted on a stand. I was absolutely floored at the difference in tone and sustain these little guys made.Do you have a favorite something in your official list of gear that isn't a drum or cymbal? A microphone maybe? Tactile monitoring system? Sadly, I have nothing to contribute, just curious as to what you guys have that you really like.
They are inexpensive - easy to install - road worth and totally one of those set and forget kind of things that doesn't need any attention after you install it.
Bigger sound - better tone - more sustain...I was floored.
Other fun things are:
Drumgees - cool little bungee cords that attach to the rims of a drum so you can hold down something like a splash on a snare for an electronic effect or a shekere on a bass drum or whatever.
Cympads - another inexpensive little upgrade that makes a sonic difference
Snare Weight M1 or M80 - nice little leather snare dampener that looks cool and has magnets to flip off and on the drum (and makes a good dog chew toy when you drop one)
Cherry Hill Drums - Micro Clutch - awesome little brass micro clutch for hats...beautiful and easy to use. They make full size ones too with beautiful wood inserts too.
Gauger Percussion - Flex Tips for floor tom leg isolators- neat little spring floor tom feet.
I have three of these coming in too so I don't have a personal review yet - but I have a couple friends that use these and they love them:
Cymbal Resonance System - kind of like suspension mounting for your cymbals.
