the usual reasons.Half inch, maybe a fraction more.
Less. I can just get my fingers underneath the hoop......roughly the same height as the batter side that is jacked up by the pedal. The shell would be parallel to the floor.
ha! and i was ashamed to admit that i was considering 3"-4". of course i may not move it at all, but i thought i'd throw it out there and see how it goes around the (drummer) world.The same amount that my footpedal raises the hoop.
I know a guy, good drummer, his reso head is on like a 22.5 degree angle. I swear, 6 feet in front of that thing, you get a puff of air...in the face.
This; my kick is completely horisontal. Raising the front of the kick doesn't make any sense to me, since the pedal clamps onto the hoop horisontally. If you raise the front of the kick, you'll strain the connection between the pedal and hoop.The same amount that my footpedal raises the hoop.
no...definitely not for the looks. i'm just thinking and experimenting. there are sooooo many adjustments that can be made on a drum kit and i read a post the other day mentioning how that it may add to projection. so i was kinda wondering what the standard is. of course there are no standards but there is a generally accepted range. i guess i'm safely within the range according to what's been posted so far.I always thought of his batter BD hoop...his pedal is level with the floor, clamped to the hoop...his hoop...has to be the same angle as his reso....I don't get it, maybe his clamp is loose. Plus you would think the beater is majorly denting the batter head on that angle.
I felt bad for the bass drum, it looked uncomfortable. Why do you want to raise it? For the look of it?
