I'm trying two different Super Kick batters for the bass drum and have the coated SK3 on now but intend to eventually use the clear SK2.

    Good luck with that, late. I'm using a Studio X on my Sonor snare right now and I seem to be having good luck w/it right now. I'm also using a Focus X on my Black Magic and I'm liking that as well.

    Thanks for the quick review drummerMD! The Focus X was my 2nd choice and now that you mentioned it, I might get one for my Ludwig BB.

    BTW...Sent you a PM. Please check your in box...thanks!

    So I took a half day today from work... I just spent 2 hours trying out and tuning all my snare drums on my Pork Pie kit.
    It's seriously amazing how one snare drum can change the entire feel/sound of a kit.

    Ordered four Cannon 6mm cymbal sleeves for my Sonor 200 cymbal boom stands since the Gibraltar ones won't fit:

    Ordered 20 nylon washers to replace the ones that I inadvertently lost while swapping heads:

    I need to order a pack of the 2.37" DW tension rods for the one missing rod on my snare. Local stores dont carry them in this length, unfortunately.

    30 minutes of our lesson, then got to watch my 2 sons have their first "band practice" jamming together on guitar and drums. Pretty awesome day if you ask me.

    I put new pinstripes on my rototoms. They still had the original black dot skins that were (ready) 30 years old! Kinda cool to tinker with them again.

    Found the need to replace a few cymbal sleeves. Hole for a 14" Zildjian A Fast Crash purchased about 5 years ago is showing signs of premature wear around the edges around the hole.

    1.jpg

    The old cymbal sleeve had ridges worn into the plastic which prevented the cymbal from moving freely, thus creating a start of an oblong hole.

    2.jpg

    The new sleeves come in 4's and the plastic appears to be of a harder polymer than the old ones which could be problematic. The softer plastic may "give" more under stress but may not last as long? We shall see.

    Wood shedded with Stick Control, (page 5) and 4-Way Coordination: A Method Book for the Development of Complete Independence on the Drum Set- (page 4) for about 45 minutes then my eyes got tired of reading tabs...

    ...so I packed up the DW kit and hauled it over to the home studio where me and my buddy will continue working on our 2nd CD of original tunes, we copyrighted and published our 1st CD last year. It feels good to be writing again after a brief break for the holidays. After listening to what we played, I need to swap out the non-ported reso with one with a port and I need to move the hihat mic closer to the hats. It's was a very productive day.
