Re: Not Your Usual Speed King Question

If you're 'handy' that piece is an easy DIY part- cut a strip of spring steel to size/ round the edges- pry the rivet out and carefully hammer a new rivet in- Yes- not 'original' but at least a fix...

Re: Head choice

Vote #2 agreed with Lenny- coated Ambassadors for the warmth. Some guys would use the more 'open' smooth white as resos/ but I'd bet you'll love the coated as both/ and they'll look the part also.

Re: Zoom Q2n

Maybe some electrical 'geniuses' can log in- but I 'think' the mAh thing is 'how long' it lasts... so if yours is 5V and won't even work it makes me wonder....it should work but for less time.......

Re: Why Do Ludwig Drums Sound So Good

I bring my '68 Ludwigs to the gig and people say- 'How did you get that 'depth'? The total overall 'sound' is deeper and 'warmer' with a nuance you can't describe....

Re: Beverley 22" Ride

I used a 24" Beverly medium ride for a few years in the 80's with a rock band- held it's own but was lacking in 'ping' bell and wash- worked okay for the old school rock of the time... thing's...

Re: store drums at a storage garage

Most responses have said 'climate controlled' which in my area (Midwest U.S.) DOESN'T exist... storage units have NO heating/A-C and the humidity is horrendous and WILL do damage over time. Make...

Re: Heads for single sided "concert" bass drum?

My opinion only- but I think the hydraulic will be 'less' responsive as far as rebound....the oil inside dampens quite a bit so other pre-damped heads may be better in YOUR situation- still-...
