    I know your kit is small... but you still need more than a door mat for a rug

    Haha it's actually leftover carpet! I was too lazy to go and get the foam blocks I use when the kit is setup on hardwood floors. I was just scared of getting dirt or even scratches on the bass drum shell, whereas hardware is much easier to clean.

    Lol. I get not wanting to set it directly on the grass. Foam blocks... like the exercise equipment foam tiles?

    You could probably use them with exercise equipment, I have no idea what to call them...perhaps foam tiles? Here's what they look like where the drums usually stay:

    Modular foam floor mats.

    I had some of these for awhile, they work great!
    I got them at Big Lots for a decent price too.

    That's what I thought you meant. I see those for sale next to treadmills all the time to protect hard floors.

    I made some padded drum bags out of those. Well I'm still working it on them, only 2 are done. I really should get back to those lol.

    Those are also a really cool idea to set up on. I bet your kit stays put on that pretty well. It would be easy to transport to a gig in a big bag, just takes a few minuets to build so maybe not worth it to gig with?

    Yes! I don't really like the look of them but they're a cheap option and work well.

    Kit doesn't move at all on them, and theyre thick enough that the spikes on the kick spurs and feet of my hi hat stand don't even come close to touching the hardwood. Definitely super easy to transport, can be assembled in only a couple mins and take up much less space than an area rug would!

    They are meant for treadmills, so it could help with bass drum vibrations as well. Obviously it's not gonna do jack f*ck all for an acoustic kit in a basement, but could definitely help for an electric kit in an apartment.

    Killer kit man! I too love the flat base hardware. Your set up is not helping my lust for a Masterworks Bop kit at all lol!

    Thanks! The flat hardware was definitely a good purchase. I'm very happy with how it turned out.

    You should see MusicMan's Midtown Masterworks in the Masterworks section if you wanna be more tempted

    I can't recommend the Vision bop enough if you can get your hands on one, especially for the price. Way better than the Catalina Club Jazz IMO. Only weak point of the kit is the snare.
