Quick Newbie Drum question

Recommended Posts

  • Members

So I know just about nthing about drums, and I acquired a 13" Pearl export tom. It has no bottom hardware or head. So I ordered a 13" hardware ring ( whats it called?), and it slips right over the drum. Does it need the drum head to stop it (I don't have a bottom head) , or did I order the wrong size?

Yes the hoop is to clamp the head to the shell so no head no clamp. The bottom head of course complicates the tuning process and makes for a sustaining sound that many drummers dislike. If you want the single headed sound, you can take an old drumhead and cut out all but an inch or so from the collar and mount it like you would a functioning drumhead. this will take care of any rattles from the loose lugs besides looking like a standard drum.
