    I actually took this route myself for what I thought was a warped rim. Long story short the rim wasn't as bad as I thought but it was clear to see the aftermarket option was just better quality. I...

    Interesting, I’ll have to give that a shot. It really does seem that for an 18” drum the positioning of the feet make all the difference. So I’d love to see what the position of the leg height does...

    Interesting! It's a shame but understandable that companies would see this a "niche market" but why no 10" I wonder? At the same time its odd that modern drums would have such a hard time with the...

    I’ve watched the video with Don Lombardi of DW showing this trick, I never said anything about no feet. I just meant that perhaps since this drum is so large that maybe with the feet pointing...

    Okay y’all so, I’ve discover something by accident while tuning. We all know that Pearls air suspension feet do wonders but at the end of the day the floor tom is still suspended by steel legs angled...

    Fair enough, as frustrating as my dilemma is, I have had fun trying different tunings and heads. It's fascinating you know? I still would like to try a clear emperor and a clear ambassador x as...

    No, I had been using a clear ambassador. I’ve always found conventional wisdom in coated emperors over clear ambassadors and it works for all of my other instruments but my 18. I just want the heads...

    Hmm, maybe? I just find it odd that my 14x14 and 16x16 floor toms can sing with this combo but not the 18.. I’ll also try coated emps on both sides since I have them and see if this brings out the...

    I did replace the original 1.6mm hoops with 1.6mm hoops from dfd. The heads are still fairly new. I have a second coated emperor because I feared that the head itself was warped however, that didn’t...

    Floor tom problems of the 18” variety

    Alright guys I need help. I have an 18x16 Pearl Decade Maple floor tom. It just sounds dead. What I mean is, there is no sustain to the fundamental and it’s driving me bananas. I have it tuned...

    I don't think you can go wrong with either brand coated or not. That said, for me coated heads have a little more of a warm characteristic. I think clear heads are going to give you a little more cut...

    I can dig it! Makes all the sense in the world to me. When I had more toms I used to love placing two toms on a stand to let me place my ride where it was most comfortable. Really dig it man!
