  • Changing drum heads - how often????

    I've had my v drums for over a year and a half and have NEVER changed a head. I play the kit about 8 hours a week. I'm especially concerned with the bass drum head. Tonight I took it apart and cleaned it - some screws needed to be tightened and the head looks ok (no dents, etc) but I'm thinking, maybe I should replace it.

    Yes, I did a search w/ no success. What do you think? Thanks

      is there any performance problems?
      If not.... play it till it dies.

      My snare head is stretched right out on my pintech, and I am having a hard time getting one as it's a 14"

      ANYONE?????

          I've had mine for nearly 3 years now. Never changed a head. I love the fact that you cant dent those things!

            Give Triggerhead a try, you can order from their website, which seems to be the only way to get them Stateside (AFAIK). I've searched in vain for a US distributor. www.triggerhead.com

              Same Series X 2-ply mesh head on my Acusnare for 3 years now. Still feels, looks and plays like new.

              Love that Kontrol Screen from Hart.
