And those things tend to come with some sort of trade-off. For example, I bought a set of all single-headed drums to make storage and transport easier--and they did! Thing is, they still sound like concert toms.Drums only need redesign to solve problems customers will pay for. So what are those? Cost, weight, setup time required, space required to store/ship them? ? ? ?
Same here. We're basically just helping a random person check the boxes for their senior design project. "conduct an online survey." Check...I filled-out the survey, but like almost every survey I've seen, it doesn't ask enough of the right questions, and is limited and incomplete on the choices available. I can't imagine what kind of useful information the author will get from it.
Carbon fiber hardware would be great, until you see the price!Good luck! I’m never one to think we’re at the peak of anything design wise so good luck!
Carbon fiber hardware might be nice and light and also isolate tone better than metal does. I’d be down with some carbon fiber stands.
I'd imagine the patents expired long ago, so sure, he probably could run with something like that.The Trixons are actually quite a brilliant design. That base drum is actually a double bass drum for those that don’t know. You can slightly see a line crossing the head through the letter “O”. That line is from a board that divides the drum in half and the two different sides give two different pitches. Not shown is the bracket on the base drum behind the tom mount. A snare hookup goes there so there is no snare stand touching the floor. Then you add a pair of conventional bass drum pedals. Coolest looking set ever!
Well that would really piss me off-especially since we've offered to help. We get these poor questionnaires all the time-I should be suspect. I didn't fill out the questionnaire and glad I didn't. He's failure to participate since he posted prompts little participation. I appreciate that we do make students check off the boxes but that isn't what's it's suppose to be. But you can only take a horse to water. I don't want DW to be known as an easy out for lazy students check list and some bullcrap questionnaires with little thought, intent, or any measurable outcomes.$10 says this guy won't even come back to the forum except to post another question/survey.
BTW, it only takes me about 15 min to set up (lowest time option was 30 min) and about 10 to tear down (the lowest time answer was 15 min).
I don't think the drum set needs a total overhaul in design. New accessories are cool and whatnot, but a "desperate need of redesign" is absurd. Feel free to prove me wrong Maverick.
Oh, I forgot...he will never see this because he's not coming back. Feel free to prove me wrong on that too.
