    VINTAGE NORTH DRUMS- 6 piece kit

    This is a really wild kit- North drums were only around for about 10 years in the late 70s and early 80s. This is a six-piece tom and bass drum set-up with the necessary custom rack and mounts. The paint job is custom, and while the drums are clearly vintage the fiberglass shells are in good...

    Changed resonant head and added riser on 18" bass drum

    So after being on backorder for several weeks, I finally received my 18" EMAD Ebony resonant head. Here is a video comparing some different sounds. I also added a bass drum riser at the end which made a WORLD of difference. [video=youtube_share;g97dg6pGJW8]

    Repairing a Broken Bass Drum Hoop

    So after years of searching I finally got my hands on an 18" Yamaha Maple Custom bass drum. . . Unfortunately I received it damaged from shipping. So I went ahead and took this opportunity to try fixing it. Worse case scenario... I search again for a replacement hoop.

    EMAD Batter as Reso?

    Has anybody tried to use an EMAD batter head as a resonant head? I was thinking that if I wanted to have an un-ported resonant head that has adjustable dampening then an EMAD batter would work well and if I manage to break the batter head I could take the reso head off and put it on the batter...

    Problems with Bass Drum O's ring

    Hey everyone, last night I was trying to install a port hole ring on my new bass drum head but I couldn't get the female ring to snap into place. I tried using the screwdriver like all the videos online show but it still wouldn't stay in place or stick to the head. So right now I'm just going...

    Tama drum sizes (Early Rockstar)

    Just out of curiosity, does anyone know if Tama made their early (late 80s, I believe--short lugs) Rockstar Drums in 22" by 18"? I've been perusing the catalogues and only found mention of 22" by 16".

    Hey folks, I have 70's 3ply 24" kick that had 4 spurs.... I removed the rear set and plugged the holes. I'm using the old mounts but with shortened floortom legs. I'm thinking it's time to upgrade, I prefer the DW/Gibraltar/Gretsch style 2 position fold up types but I'm wondering about the...

    Wanted: Gretsch Renown 16x20 Bass Drum Gloss Natural

    Anyone looking to set one free? I much prefer the RN1 version with virgin kick - no mount on top. Not a deal breaker, though. I have both 22 and 24 versions. Would possibly trade either one.

    Axis pedals: I don't get it

    Just to try something different I bought an Axis longboard X single bass drum pedal. I liked having the longboard on my speed cobra double pedal I had awhile back, so I thought I would try out another longboard. But when I put the pedal on my bass drum, I noticed I wasn't getting any power...
