    That would work, a square of plywood with carpet stuck to it on one side. Plywood should be reasonably thick say 1/2" at least, then carpet side down and spike goes into the plywood?

    Anyone own or played the newish Sonor SQ1 birch kits? They look like a really nice high end kits, a bit more affordable than SQ2. Look kinda nice, certainly got my juices flowing.
