    Is there a shorter shaft length bass drum beater for 16" bass drum players?

    I've got a few 16" bass drums. I do not use risers on them. I move the beater shaft down a little. I've found that it doesn't have to be anywhere near the center to sound good. Same on my 17" bass drums. Mike

    Club date info help

    Very nice set there. They look great. Many times the 22/13 in Club Dates were a combo kit with the bass, tom and snare. If the 14 is anywhere near close in serial number, could have been ordered at the time. If way off in serial range, might have been added later like many were. With the 22/13...

    Exploring new bass drum beaters

    I know it sounds simple....but buy a pair of infant size socks. I actually got mine at Goodwill. They fit nicely over the beater and you will get no wear on the beater. Its just enough muffling to give a great sound as well. They work. Can't recall if I read it here or dreamed it up myself....Mike

    Thanks for the info on the badges. I've got a early 7x11 tom that was part of a WFL Royal Maple (?) kit. I used to know the exact name. It's Zephyr lug, wood hoops with dual inlays. It has the rectangular decal on it......You're killing me on that price!! Well done sir....Mike
