    Shallow bass drum club

    I use a mongrel kit (Pearl Rhythm Traveler bass drum, DW piccolo tom & Blacro + LP compact conga on occasion) for a lot of subdued/dining gigs. Clear SK1 on batter, ported front head.

    Is The 22/16/13 Configuration Too Big?

    I have no problems with porting mine - this is my favorite bass drum of all time.

    Is The 22/16/13 Configuration Too Big?

    That's what I did a few years back when I did a "down-the-road-and-into-the-sunset" assessment of my sunset years. I started playing on a 22k/13,16f (a used Ludwig Super Classic) and then moved on to the 70s multi-tom thing in various configurations/combinations but always with a 22 kick. Around...

    Drum Company Flops!

    Verisonic still makes those sticks. When I was in jr high, the local hot shot drummer in the local hot shot rock band used them - very flashy, so naturally I got a pair when I started playing. The original version had a problem with the tip coming loose (but never off) making them feel and sound...

    Pearl lock problem

    I'm having problems getting the tongue on the Pearl memory lock on my tom post to fit into the groove into the bass drum tom receiver mount (BB-3, BB-300). When I put the lock into the bass drum mount by itself, no problem - it fits snug and flush. But when I put it on the 7/8" tom pipe and...

    Triggers and form over function.

    Exactly. Why not take advantage of the possibilities that e-drums offer? You don't need all that furniture.

    Two shell banks instead of eight different kits?

    Somewhat similar. All carbon fiber drums (except for the concert tom, which is fiberglass): 20 & 22 kicks; 14 & 16 floors; 8 concert tom; 10 & 12 standard racks; 10,12,14 short stacks - all toms take 10.5mm L- rod mounting post. Plus 8,10,12 DW piccolo toms & 13 Pearl flat timbale, all with...

    The 3 most popular bass drum pedals today.

    I think the All-time Award for "Who?" could have gone to Premier, the percussive masters of mystery.

    Accompanying an acoustic guitarist

    I'll repeat my opinion that if the other guy's got a little amp/PA (a la Bose L1), going with a Handsonic/KAT multipad/Wavedrum/Octapad w/ or w/o a kick pedal would give you more sonic options than a handfull of miscellaneous stuff. If someone's a diehard acoustic kind of guy (I often count...

    Accompanying an acoustic guitarist

    Given your stated possibilities, I'd say the KAT multipad (or something similar like a Korg Wave drum or an octapad) would be your best bet.

    Lightweight snare stands

    Best kept secret: old Rogers Memriloc snare stands are fairly lightweight and super robust. They'll only hold drums between 12 and 15" (which covers most drums except 10" snares), and if you're snare is in that range, I'd recommend them. Great design and totally stable (which the Tama is not due...
