  • Any ideas on economy with bass drum heads

    I have had my Vdrums session set for four months and have blown out my first bass drum head.
    Does anyone know what I can do to save on bass drum head wear, as I am a lead foot apparently.
    All the best
    cheers

    Well, I use a bass drum beater patch (or whatever they are called). It seems to work good. So far I haven't noticed any wear at all, except for the felt beaters themselves. The one I have is an Evans Kevlar patch. I don't know if I have a "lead foot", but I tend to pound pretty hard at times.

    You can also do a search for this subject, as this and all other subjects are always thouroughly discussed to death.

      Thanks for the info.
      I will look for some at the drum centre
      I was just wondering how the kevlar patches would stick to the mesh head.
      do they stick on ok?

        Mine fell off after a while, so I used an epoxy glue, and now they stick.

          Thanks for the help guys.
          Epoxy is an excellent idea.
