I always thought that as well. And while we're on that topic, didn't it always seem like those gold Maple Custom Absolute lugs were ALWAYS on a green gloss lacquer kit? I've seen a handful that were on a natural finish kit, but 99% of the gold lug Maple Custom Absolute lugs I have seen were on the green gloss lacquer.

Yes! And let's make them 1" diameter poles while we're at it, and make them really awkward (if not impossible) to adjust from playing position.

The only benefit I could see from that system is saving floor space, but at that point, just get a rack instead of making your bass drum resemble some deli Swiss cheese.

I totally agree. I tried one once. I had zero power with that pedal. No matter how hard I stomped on that dang thing, I could not achieve any volume over mp.


How about the Sabian Rocktagon?
