  • What's next to "dial in" on your kit?

    While rippin' up a show with my old rock cover band Saturday night, I noticed my floor tom could probably use a tiny bit of tuning focus on the bottom head. It's my next thing to "dial in" on the kit.

    After that, I want to start messing with my slave pedal's bass drum spring again.

    What's next for you to dial in on your kit?

    Probably new batter heads for my studio kit.

    I put all new heads on both my gigging kits, but the Sonor's could use some fresh plastic.

    — Sonor Designer Maple shell (heavy) 8 pc. for studio

    — Paiste, Bosphorus and Sabian cymbals, depending on what I'm doin'.
    — Small collection of assorted snare drums to suit my mood.

      Next will be some 16" hi-hats and/or a 14" rack tom to replace the 12" on my gold sparkle kit. I think that will get me dangerously close to the sound I've been hearing in my head.

    I've been wanting a pair of 17" crashes. I have 18's and 16's, but I always liked my 17, up until it developed a bad case of the cracks. A friend of mine has a K Custom Dark Crash that I've tried to talk him out of, to no avail.

    I've also played with and developed a liking for the A Custom Fast Crash.

      I have the A Custom in an 18. It has a low overtone that I'm not happy with. It just doesn't seem to project like my smaller cymbals.
