Try an Evans hydraulic on the reso unported .

I have a 10x16 Ludwig 3 ply marching single headed marching tom that's waiting for me to do something . I'll make a hoop out of an old 20" shell and use the existing tri flange for the reso side .

I used an Olympic 20x12 for jazz and acoustic gigs. Lambswool beater , double headed . real sweetheart of a drum .

Also a REMO 18 x 10 .

Here it is :

Boomy, huh? I‘d like to remind y‘all of a discussion about the effect of shallow depths few months ago, decay time and such.

I just joined. Going to my go-to Emad clear and ported Regulator. I have to port for the mic but also there is too much slapback from the solid front head for my liking. I may keep it pillow free and see how I like it, otherwise my dogbone pillow will be put in.

I'm curious about depth' s impact on single headed. I suspect you might want some of that depth back but...then again if you're muffling.

Slingerland late 50's Masonite shells blue/silver duco. 5x14" Radio king student model, Bass drum is a 12x22" both have nickel hardware.The drums sound very good actually, The snare drum can take any tension that a wood model can handle, As a thread exist about Masonite shells not being very structurally sound, But these Slingerland shells are very sturdy.
