    Thank you! Yeah, I've been reading your posts. :) Yep, the kick does leave a lot to be desired, but it's a start for sure. :) I adjusted it basically right after I got it. Never replaced the spring. I love your rolands! That's the type of kit I always wanted back in the day as they were...

    Thank you! Thank you for the welcome! And yep, that's what I did a long time ago as it was fighting with me otherwise. If there's a way to dial it in more, I wouldn't mind trying that too. There's 3 different screw attachment points for the spring on the rotating section, and I can't...

    It could be...in fact, now that I'm near it, let me go check what it is...so it's a Premiere strap model that looks similar to this one: I've also just now noticed that there are 3 different screw holes that I can adjust the top part of the spring. I decreased the tension in the spring...

    Thank you! I've always been jealous of the pillow and couch drummers because the beat sounds so much better. :) My wife definitely pays more attention when I'm air drumming...and then she says, 'stop that!' :icon_lol: Nah, actually she's really cool and I think she actually used to play a snare...

    Thank you for the welcome and the tips! I was at guitar center a few weeks back and was itching to sit at the kits as they had 3x set up...but the wife had other plans for my time, lol. I will go back when she's not looking! :angel8:

    When did Reverb overtake Ebay?

    Very interesting retrospective on how it used to be. I wasn't old enough to have to sell anything, but I do remember all that and publications like the Thrifty Nickel.

    Actually, when you sell something used on ebay, et al, even if you bought it new they still charge sales tax. The income tax portion is why they send you a 1099, and technically you're supposed to report a 'gain' even if you don't get a 1099.

    Nick Mason and his rare Ferrari

    Those are definitely a hoot. A buddy of mine would autocross his regularly and he said it was like driving a go kart. :) A Ferrari is the ultimate driver's car, but also a maintenance nightmare. A good buddy of mine used to be a Aston Martin, Ferrari, Porsche, and Maserati certified tech and...

    Nick Mason and his rare Ferrari

    It just goes to show that being smart in other parts of your life can crossover in ways you never knew. I bought Microsoft stock back in 1995...and I still have it.;) Now, if I can learn to drum as well as him, I might enjoy a Ferrari as well. Nah, I'll get the new Tesla Roadster and be done...

    You were the first. :D Thank you! Thank you! Wassssssupppppp!!!!! :D Thank you Piggpenn! Thank you for the information and words of encouragement. I'll have to check the pedal to see what adjustments it has and if not, time to shop--but how? I think only my foot knows when it plays it, and I...

    Nick Mason and his rare Ferrari

    Ah...two of my favorite things in one picture. :D This is pretty good to know! I have a Boxster and would never dream that it could hold that much. :)
