Nice Job on the new glossary page - very cool!

Something in the drum parts that I need clarified is regarding tension rods.

Is the term t-rods exclusive to bass drum T shaped tension rods, or is it a general shortening of "tension rods"? Also, I'm trying to force myself to differentiate "key rods" (k-rods?) and T-rods (non-key rods) in my post usage; Is this a silly question?

Don't mind me, I just used the word "Nomenclature" in a general topic post - As I learn this stuff, I wanna get it right.

btw is hot drumming "nuclear" or "nucular" ?

That's a great question. I always presumed it was the "T" shape.

I always thought t-rod was short for any tension rod.

For me, it was "lug screw" that was the general term, but "T"-rods were specifically the ones on bass drums that had the "T" handle. But, I honestly never thought about it until now.

Ah-Ha!

So at the heart of my tension rod question, there are really just key-rods & T-rods - k-rods & t-rods - that should make defining (and clarifying) the term EZr ~ Dig That!
