Thanks bro! Mama always said there are no stupid questions: the flat-side design on wood hoops is for snare strainer/thow-off clearance. Its not always needed, depending on the design and depth of the shell, but that's what its for. Happy

I was on the fence for a few months, then bought a Starphonic bubinga snare and a stack of new cymbals. There went that stack of cash.

I don't know if y'all have heard my latest ('cuz the forum crashed), so here ya go: https://youtu.be/w8NGCU0_9Fc

I really dig these cymbals! My band mates? Not so much.

We played a gig last weekend and the guitarist said, "Man those cymbals are loud!"
The sound guy said, "The things sound fantastic!"

Haha! You noticed that huh... because of the depth I don't need it 4 strainer clearance, so I moved it around to get more even wear on the hoop. More likely to be damaged if I keep it in the same place all the timeHappy

Yep, moongel. It's an EMAD head, but I'm running it without the foam ring and nothing inside the kick. Just couple of feltstrips. I used to have Ambassadors on the kick and I learned years ago that a piece of duct tape or moongel around halfway between the edge and the impact point calms the head down just enough - it's more about the feel than sound.

BTW, I actually hate this EMAD philosophy with foam and stuff. The head itself is over dampened, but the shell still vibrates and reverberates like crazy. The bass drum ends up being to quiet while still having weird and counter productive overtones and vibrations.
I guess I eventually learned that the bass drums work the best when either nearly completely open, but when it doesn't work that way, then it needs some kind of weight inside and maybe some blanket or something to break the standing waves. Overdampening the head itself doesn't do all the tricks.

And thanks. Happy
