Default Re: Snare Drum Rewrap Project


Open the vent hole Tim. If the air can't get out when you hit it, it could set up some weird sympathetic vibrations that can mess with the sound of the drum. Maybe not... try it and see if you get any funny after-sounds. If not, you're good to go. To tell you the truth, I don't really know how much a sound hole effects the sound of a drum. Good question for a tech. In the meantime, nice job. Enjoy your kit.

I was listening to Govt. Mule/Warren Haynes last night and his drummer's old Slingy's sounded so good. Bang de drum mon!

Too many great drums to list here!
