    • That's a really great art piece, tribute to Zappa as well as Bozzio and a beautiful instrument as well.  I know something like that is meant to sit in a glass case, but I'm curious to hear the sound with the 10 ply shell and the black suede heads.   Classy drum.  Almost on par with Speedy's fan.  
    • What a beautiful snare drum! I was never into Frank Zappa so, I never heard about "Black Page". I knew of Terry Bozzio, mostly from Missing Person. I am blown away by the intricate patterns! In my opinion this composition is right up there with Rush's "Villa"! I love this Drum Site!  It's members and moderator's turning me on to material I've never heard or explored! I've been learning so much! Every time I scan this site my eyes are open to something new! I wish I learned of this Drummers oasis sooner!
    • That's pretty scummy of them. I'll just leave it at that.

    • As mentioned typically a thinner single ply (like the stock Mapex heads) head will have more rebound than a thicker two ply head (like the Evans EMAD heavyweight).   other things that can also contribute to changes in rebound for a pedal are the use of dampening (pillow, towel, blanket, etc) and the use of a port or lack thereof on the resonant head.   Tuning and head selection is personal and highly subjective so my best advice is to experiment and find what you feel offers the best rebound and tonal balance for what you do.  There are no rules if it sounds and feels good it is good.

    • My take on this.. As fact, as long as you've changed nothing in the pedal settings themselves, they are the same .
      As fact, a thin head vs heavy head has different rebound characteristics. Heavy heads in general tend to absorb impact as where thinner heads tend to reflect impact more. Keep in mind this is assuming both the heavy and thin head are tuned properly. A properly tuned thin ply head will always have more rebound My suggestion to you is practice with the head your going use. If you have a use for both which is entirely possible, practice with both when you can.   Welcome to OD oNyx1980
    • Hey guys, i'm a big fan of Mapex drums and my daily practices are usually done on a mapex kit of some kind. something i realized recently is that my bass drum pedal has different weight and feel when i'm playing with mapex stock bass drum head (which is REMO of some kind) than the one i usually use (EVANS Heavyweight). When I'm playing with the remo head on it feels like i'm putting too much effort on playing the bass pedal and specially when i'm playing a twin pedal pattern my pedal feels super heavy and super slugish and i end up producing uneven and off beat kick sounds. why is this happening and how can i improve my technique so i can play flawlessly with any heads on. cheers.
