    Re: Click / Impact Pads: How to use them

    Hey yall I'm back for an update. I threw a Danmar product on my bass drum for my hardcore band after my bandmates said they couldn't hear me.

    This Danmar product is an 1/8" thick aluminum plate...

    Re: Click / Impact Pads: How to use them

    I still swear by my click pads, just installed one last weekend.

    I've been using the aluminum beaters from my Trick Dominators and I'm getting (not surprisingly) a very metallic, biting "tink"...

    Re: Click / Impact Pads: How to use them

    Yeah I've always had problems with adhesion and durability. I use gorilla tape around the outside nowadays, the narrow 1" stuff. I've also considered removing the actual plastic parts and securing...

    Re: S-Hoop Vs 3mm Triple Flange

    To anyone wondering, I bought used, generic die cast and have loved every second of them! I've been playing them about 2 years now.

    Re: Metronome recommendations needed.

    I use the Silver Wheel metronome app. It works great for me when I play live. Lots of good subdivision options. Also FREE.

    It holds a lot of presets, so I like to use it live. I can program song...

    S-Hoop Vs 3mm Triple Flange

    I'm thinking about replacing the 2.3mm hoops on my Sonor Black Mamba 13x7 maple snare. Ideally I would like to put die cast hoops on it, but the cost is prohibitive. I'd like to dry out the tone as...

    Re: Internal Mic'ing for drums

    I'm thinking about doing this. Apex makes a good, cheap, quality (good reviews) tom mic that I think I'll use, the APEX 326. My plan is this:

    1. Gut the mics (housing is too large)
    2. take the...

    Re: click pad

    I love mine. Here is my setup:

    Shell: 22x16 poplar, 45 degree bearing edge
    batter: Remo PS3
    Reso: Remo ebony PS3 w/factory porthole
    Gibraltar/Sound Percussion click pad
    NO MUFFLING

  10. Re: Kickport...kick around your thoughts...

    I didn't like mine. I didn't like the extra weight. I found that my reso head was more muffled than my batter head, which seemed dumb. I use a plastic impact pad and hard beaters, so I get allllll...

    Pros
    Quality shell
    Good strainer
    Nice hoops

    Cons
    Cheap hardware, particularly the throwoff

    Re: PDP Concept Pedal

    I just brought these pedals home yesterday. I'll make a new thread about them soon.

    First thoughts:

    Kind of light-weight, especially compared to the beefy DW 7000's I was playing before. They...

    The finish is black wrap, nothing special. The kit isn't particularly high-end and doesn't have a lot of flashy extras. It's more of an "everything you need,...

    Re: Stagg Cymbals - Worth it or not?

    I've been playing Stagg Single Hammered (SH) cymbals for two years. They're great. They last (as long as you play with proper technique) and they sound great. Incredibly bright and sensitive.

    Re: The best TKO kit you've ever heard

    Yeah the boom isn't for everyone. However it's a HUGE contrast to my main kit. My main kit is a double bass kit so I keep it super muffled.

    Re: Feedback on the footwork

    Thanks for the advice guys. I had the beaters that far back because I wasn't satisfied with the power I was getting out of the pedals. I replaced with Iron Cobra rubbers and they're a lot oomfier now.
