That would be a mistake. Roman candles are rated for floor toms. Mortar shells/tubes are rated for bass drums. Sparklers are for tambourines, cowbells, and jamblocks; firecrackers are obviously rated for snare drums. Bottle rockets typically for cymbals. Toms are rated for various ground based, low-level visuals.I’ll hold off on posting my plans to drill multiple holes in my bass drum for the purpose of installing Roman candles.
I really like my DW's...absolutely stunning drums...but that tom tree thing is just so re-diculously heavy. It doesn't even go up that high. 12mm posts are in the diminishing returns zone. It would be nice if they made a lighter tom tree
I used this same exact mapex mount on 2 of my Guru bass drums. I have nothing bad to say about it. It did what I needed it to do, and I'd do it all over again. The lug hole spacing thankfully was the same as the Guru lugs.I'm trying to locate a used Mapex Saturn IV mount assembly (THBM2218A). I plan on modifying it (along w/ changing ball L-arms) and 4 of my bass drum lugs to fit my DW Collectors kit. I looked at the previous versions of it, but I want this one. Once I find a used one, I'll do a video of the success/failure of the conversion.

Not exclusively.Thing is if your drums aren't the way you'd like them, you bought the wrong drums..
And here you are. Giving them a dime with previously mentioned some bullshit.No anger whatsoever. I've never given them a dime. I was just trying to justify DW owner's concerns over resale value.
That said, I'm also not much of a fan of bullshit and double standards.
That's the caveat. If I don't factor in my time, which does have value regardless of the type of time, I've made a lot of money on everything I've ever sold. Time spent making repairs or the like is time not spent playing drums, camping, spending time with family etc. therefore, it has a value that needs to be factored in to the overall equation.Yes, I work on my own stuff. No, I don't put a dollar value on my spare time. Its spare time.
