    A common position for the floor tom is on the same axis as the snare, at 3 o'clock, with your right leg in between the snare and floor tom. People with several floor toms often end up with them at 4 o'clock or even further back. When playing it with the right hand your elbow does go back, yes, and to...

    You can move all the toms clockwise and put the hi hat cymbal in where the 8" tom is now.

    Like basschick says, there's nothing written in stone, but after a short glance this is what I reckon: The hi hat is way too far away to your left. You want it close to your snare so you can hit it with your right hand comfortably without contorting your whole body. Most people locate it at about the...

  • Just got a quote from the Alibaba company: $125 for a pair of hi hats w/shipping to Spain - shipping alone was about $65... Might as well get some Zildjians! Looks like you got lucky, someone made a mistake somewhere, or I spoke to the wrong person...

    Cheers anyway!

  • Thanks very much for the info! I'm going to get in touch to see if they will ship to Spain. Yeah, not very concerned about the sonic qualities.

    I asked about the edge switch because I saw someone else claim it also worked as an edge switch due to the flex of the cymbal. I have a membrane...

  • Wow! What a great find! I'd be very interested in knowing in more detail how you purchased the cymbals - did they accept selling them directly to you, did they propose the agent or did you have to find one yourself?

    Also - does the edge switch also function as an edge trigger or is it just...

  • I do this too. I took the legs off a regular cheap hi hat stand and attached it to the rack. You can tilt the cymbals towards yourself without much of a noticeable change in their angle....

  • You could buy some low volume cymbals and some trigger kits from Jman: http://www.stealthdrums.com/purchase22.html

    I don't get the answer they gave you either. If the satellites are wired in series to the 4 ohm speakers, and you add some 8 ohm satellites, that's 12 ohm the amp is seeing. There's a risk when you wire, say, 2 ohm speakers to an amp rated for 4 or 8 ohm minimum, but when you connect something above...

    Ok, but it'll have to wait until I get back from holidays. Be warned that my playing sucks.

    Nah​, I've been using that nick for the last 25 years because it means "anonymous", nothing to do with Mr Donati...

    Cheers! My rubbish playing doesn't do the pedal justice though - I can make a video just showing it actually "working", but just like a pro can make a spongebob squarepants kit sound good, I'd make a $1000 pedal look faulty...

    Longboard/direct drive pedal mod

    ​​​​​Hi,

    I was curious about longboard direct drive pedals and decided to try my hand at modding my current cheap chain-drive doubles.

    The footboard is made with carbon fibre, the heel hinges are done with pillow block bearings, and the connecting...
