this thread is for myself and anyone else in the UK to share the suppliers and materials they have used or found.
i so far have just gone for the sandblock type cone. i got mine from wilkinsons but i think you can get them a little cheaper from markets etc.. (there is a seller on ebay that does cones but i haven't tried them yet, UFO or something like that)
Mesh Heads -
Tdrum, i have three of these and i'm pleased with them only had a month so can't comment on durability.
http://www.thomann.de/gb/tdrum_th12.htm (it will be shipped from Germany but checkout the full website, lots of edrum stuff and cheap so you can make it worthwhile)
http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Arcade-Music - arcade music usually have some, i have one. its a bit thicker than the Tdrum ones but only time will tell if that better.
Rim Silencer -
i found some rubber U-Channel on ebay but the seller no longer uses ebay. i have messaged him about the product and he would still be happy for custom so give him a shout firstname.lastname@example.org and quote 'BenCTheMusicMan from ebay put me onto you about your rubber U-Channel' (or something similar, and no i'm not on commission)
bits and bobs, screws, bolts, rubber washers - wilkinsons
Thats all i can think of for now so i best get back to work!
