    Default I Built A "Skinny Bass Drum"

    I built a kick from a Keller Shell cut-off that I bought on Reverb for $35

    I'm thinking about taking this process and building a whole kit, so if you want to see something like that let me know.

    Dude, would love to see some of your projects, but youtube links aren't the way. This really isn't the place for asking for subscribers or people to comment on Youtube. Its a discussion forum to talk here and share ideas, thoughts and photos.
    Pearl, Natal, Ludwig, Tama, Slingerland, Premier, Arbiter Drums
    Zildjian, Sabian, Zyn Cymbals
    PEARL, PREMIER, LUDWIG, TAMA, YAMAHA, NATAL and DW Snares

    Roland, Dauz, FAT KAT and Koby Electronics, and loads of Percussion

    5 Kits and 11 Snares, and I still don't have enough!

    This guy gets it. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy Youtube, but it's becoming such a clickbait now. And every single video I see has someone saying "like, comment, click subscribe and don't forget the bell icon"... Enough.

    Indeed, By all means people share videos here, but they balance it with opinions and explanations, and contribute more than just a link to their opinion.

    Nice one! I've always felt that the whole "mini kit" phase has sort of been a "close but no cigar" situation. Obviously a 14" or 16" diameter drum will be smaller, but the depth is usually what eats up more stage... Yamaha and Tama have started offering shallower kicks, and companies here and there have done similar, but I think the shallow 18" or 20" makes way more sense than a 16x16" or 14x16" ... they sound better and take up less stage. I find, even in shallow depths, an 18" or 20" shell has droves more of the warmth you expect from a kick. Those little 16" kicks are great for little kids, but they are too "poppy" (as in sonically, not the genre) and bouncy, in my opinion.

    I have zero woodworking gear, space to do so in my apartment, or experience (most importantly). I'm always passively looking for something like this!

    EDIT: And hey, I like the video... it's a much more efficient way of showing us your process, and of course being able to hear the finished product as well as see it is pretty rad.
