    ive been told that the timpani style head is supposed to be distinctive sounding , being 2 inches over sized, is somehow supposed to be more resonant ...
    that said . i personally think that a fat low resonant sound would be easier to achieve with 2 heads
    even if i acquired an gong tom with the pork/tama styled head config, i would mount a resonant head and hoops on it ,

    I found out today. No it does not.

    It's probably good that they don't, they might not function well at an angle they weren't designed to work for. Those BRL lugs have had their troubles over the years.

    You are probably right. I thought the same thing when I tried this . . .

    That's what I thought you were talking about... you mean that, but with a wood bass drum hoop?

    Here is mine.

    In love with gong drums ever since is saw Gary Wallis using one at the Division Bell tour of Floyd.

    I had one made from a kick too back with my Oak kit. It was great but you need that overlap of at least one inch and no counter head to get that real low sustaining sound.
