  • For those days when less is more............

    So I have been working on an A2E Premier kit with a 22" kick and 10", 12", 13" and 16" toms. The toms have DIY pan kits in them. My question to y'all is this, I would like to make my 16" Tom into a push me - Pull you (yes Dr. Doolittle) configuration so that I can use it as the kick with a pearl jungle jig for smaller venues. Here's what I am envisioning. Leaving the pan as I originally built it and then putting a decent mesh head on the bottom and using the KISS method to install a cone trigger it the side of the shell with its own jack so I can just turn the drum around depending on how I will use it. Do you see any issues with building it this way? Thanks

    Nope. If Im understanding you correctly.....it should work fine. However If Positional Sensing is not needed for the 16...you could just mount one trigger off to the side instead of having to build 2. If you use felt beaters just make a temporary kick patch from an old mylar head and KRT (Killer Red Tape) and slap it on the head when using it for a kick.

      Thanks Daniel I built the pan trigger using Racer52's method using extreme hold tape ): making moving the cone a little more difficult. I have a spare cone trigger so it will be easier to mount it on the other side of the shell. Hopefully I won't get the bounce that I did before modifying my 22".
