    Nice work!

    Hi Dave

    Very nice job, i also like that chrome rack ... you did well getting the toms so cheap ... mine are running at £73 per drum as i had to pay postage on the tom drums and also went for Roland mesh heads and cones for spot on PD, double ended chrome lugs, mount brackets and UFO Rim Rubbers from the usa.

      I've found rim rubbers to be more hassle than their worth... they seem to wear through really quickly (happened within a few weeks with my old MiGe 12" Snare trigger) though maybe that's just my heavy handed and sloppy technique

      I looked at getting the UFO cones too but thought I'd try cutting my own foam first... especially given the large variety of packaging and acoustic treatment foam I have lying around to choose from (in this case, used some medium density seat cushion type foam) so far, they are working just fine. The TD-6 does allow some fairly useful tweaking of the trigger settings which does help an awful lot with this.

        Hi Dave, great photos. Do you have any other info on building your trigger rails or the cones you made? I'm thinking about going for it and as a newbie, I could use all the help I can get. Thanks!!
