Today I made some time to make modifications to my drumset. I have been thinking about getting a new cymbal for a while (maybe Zildjian K Custom Hybrid ride???), but before making that investment I thought I would find a way to use all three of my cymbals.
- Re-drill the tom bracket on the mounted floor tom. This way the batter head of the two toms is on the same plane. I wonder why other 4-piece kits keep the floor tom on the floor..?
- Sew a stick bag and mount to the floor tom. I needed a place to put sticks when I’m switching between hot rods and drum sticks. I bought canvas, needles and waxed thread for this and I’m happy how it came out.
- Try out a cymbal tree. This is pretty Frankenstein, but maybe I’ll like it!
