    Well, darn. I was on an iPhone 5 with its older iOS using the PDF app until I upgraded a few days ago - now no more.
    Shame, it was a pretty darn good app and I used it more than on my desktop, as I...

    I think it's definitely good to challenge conventions. Good innovation can happen that way. In my case, it wasn't that I was trying to be adventurous but I was pushed into playing a kit a certain way...

    Rocket toms vs roto toms?

    My current kit is for up and two down. My smallest drum is an 8 inch.

    I'm looking to fill in some of the higher end and am wondering about the differences and tonal qualities of rocket Tom's or...

    Rototoms?

    My pearl kit starts with 8, 10, 12, 13, and the floors are 14 inch and 16 inch.

    Lately I've been keeping them tuned a little on the lower pitch end.

    Sometimes I catch myself wishing I had...

  6. At home practice. Speakers, headphones, in ears?

    I think I'm a bit of an unusual case. My gigging drum kits are located at the rehearsal hall or regular location. They are mic'ed and I rehearse with headphones are usually in ears.

    However, my...

    Third floor tom... placement?

    Hey gang,

    I'm particularly interested in perspectives from those with larger drum kits (though all are welcome!).
    I'm running double bass drums, 4 up, 2 down, and will be getting a third, lowest...

    Yep, it's a panoramic photo. Looks pretty weird, it even makes some of my drums look squashed. It's a fairly comfortable set up that definitely wraps around me, it's not as linear as it appears it...

    My drum throne is also pretty close to the wall, so this is about as good of a panorama as I can take. As you can see, this is what causes me to have to compromise. When I play rock, some of the...

    How much do you agonize over cymbal placement?

    I have a reasonable-size kit and space is at a premium (two bass, 4 up, 2 down, airspace above drums for cymbals is maxed out). As I've transitioned from one style of music to another (I play rock as...

    Great guidance everyone - thank you all very much!
    I may port one of my bass heads as soon as I get a bit of time... I suspect it may get me most of the the way there with this issue.

    Interesting, so basically your sense is that it was air pressure pushing back on the batter head that needed to be released?

    So, another possibility is that my un-ported heads are letting the air produce push-back?

    I have one pair of this model and for some reason, in my hands, they are the most slippery sticks I've ever had. I can't hold on to them without friction tape.
