  • Mesh head suggestions

    I'm converting an accoustic kit.

    Are Pearl Traveler mesh heads good enough (they're pretty inexpensive)?
    Or should I take the plunge and get some nicer ones like the Hart Dynamics?

    I'm gonna be using Ddrum triggers.

    You are right!
    I'm at work and at lunch hour I am gonna call in an order for the ddrum trigger set and the hart single ply heads (10",12" and 16").

    Thanks for the advice.

    Hmmm. I wonder what I should use on my 22" kick?
    Most good mesh heads are small sizes.

      Thanks for the site.

      I think I'm gonna end up buying the Hart single ply ones.
      I have a 10",12", and 16" toms, 14" snare.

      Not sure yet how to treat my 22" kick.

        Good choice.
        The double plies are more durable - maybe use the double for the kick.
        The single plies seem to trigger a little better with ddrum triggers and the ddrum module...but on a kick I would use double.

          Cool, thanks for your input.
          I saw that Roland is comming out with some acoustic triggers.
          That kind of news kinda makes me want to wait.

          We'll see,

            Hey leadfoot -

            I am doing a similar conversion on my 5-pc.. Taking the same route as you - getting mesh heads and triggers. I'm gonna go with the Roland triggers and singly-ply Hart heads also. I also have to buy a Td-6 module and maybe e-cymbals. IT's gonna be pricey, but well worth I think. Let me know how your experiences go. I have a post in Suggestions section about this too.

              My heads are on their way, as well as my triggers.
              Hopefully, I will have them by monday.

              I'd like to know how yours turn out too.

              If you want you could always email me directly....
