  • Roland baskets

    Hi all,

    Just working on my latest conversion. Would like to know if anybody has had any experience trying to fit rolands own spider baskets from the pd125 into a 12 inch acoustic shell? I think I read somewhere else on here that they don't quite fit correctly? Any advice greatly appreciated.

    Regards

    You may have some trouble getting the basket to fit. It really depends on the angle of the bearing edge. I have heard of people soaking the basket in very hot water to soften it before forcing it onto the shell. You may, however, be lucky and find that it fits okay.

      Along with Allan's comment...I believe that there is a bit of modification to the shell needed also. Seems to me a notch is required to get the basket to fit properly. There was a member here who did this and explained it in detail. Hmmm....jammin777 maybe? I don't recall. Try searching a bit...it's here somewhere.

        Or you can just file the tab off the basket. It's not really necessary.

      I too think it was Jammin'. Here:

      Also, some of our most avid DIY'ers have tinkered and discussed about printing your own basket!

        Hi everyone,

        Thanks for the advice and ideas. I had actually thought of designing my own and getting it 3d printed. I had even done all the design work in sketchup. Here's what I came up with.

        Sent it to a 3d printing company here in the UK for a quote. Now bearing in mind this is to fit inside a 12 inch diameter shell and, top to bottom, it was a little under 7cms in height, the quote to get it printed was over £500!!!

        Looks like that option is a no go. I think I will try and order one of the baskets and, like allan mentioned, try and soften the edges a little to bend them to fit my shells. I can borrow a heat gun from my work and see whether that will do the trick.

        Ooops...!

        A cheaper tip:
        Are you familiar with "Fat Daddio's Cake Pans?" ...they are popular around here!
        Not as 'sophisticated' looking as a Roland basket, but a difference in trigger-characteristics I fail to see, at the moment.

          There is a sonic difference: baking pans are quite noisy. Roland baskets allow the sound waves to dissipate.

          Thanks for the info, Allan!

          I feel this is nothing that can't be remedied with a healthy dose of insulation/foam on the inside of the pan. Minor issue, right?

        +1 for the pans.

          Yeah I read that you notch out the shell or something similar? I too have done my whole kit with fat daddio including 16" bass drum. No problems with triggering at all but I'm still working on some sort of dampening as they do resonate. On a separate note does anyone have pics inside a jobeky drum? Cheers
