Pearl Hoop Protector, Mark Turner

    Received a box of the Pearl BD hoop protectors from Mark. They sell for
    around $4 each, and I would highly recommend them to anyone with wood BD
    hoops. They really look great and should fit any hoop. I've only tried them
    on Gretsch so far, but I think the thickness is fairly standard. Nice clean
    install, and as you can see in the pics, it covers up the bite marks already
    on the hoop. The only caveat is have is to skip the screw they comes with
    and get a decent flat headed screw. Otherwise, you just slip in on and screw
    it in place. BAM! Oh, and get 'em from Mark Turner. He rocks wicked haaahd.

    I haven't had much luck with these; at least, when I was using a Pearl
    pedal I didn't. the pedal would always slip off of the hoop protector.
    I think it was alright with a DW pedal, though.

    It came standard on my Pearl birch kick and I've been using it with the
    Eliminator for two years with no slippage.

    You mean wide open as in P3 wide open? EMAD wide open?

    Wide open to me means a pair of unported ambassadors. I have my 20 set up
    higher and more open: Medium tight P3 batter, tight coated amb with felt
    strip on the front. I may switch to an amb on the batter and move the felt.
    I wanted a drier more rock thump sound from this drum (22), so I'm going P3,
    ported amb front and small blanket. It's a nice setup because you just reach
    in and adjust the blanket to give you the sound want depending on the room
    and band.

    Get some made up in that contact paper stuff that was shown a few weeks ago.
    Add a black plastic handle near the tom mounts and you have the world's

    Plus if you use an electric blanket you can get that warm, resonant tone.

    I use the stock heads that come on my Starclassic with nothing in the drum
    and no muffling and they just thump. EQ-1 on the batter with the sound ring
    removed, and EQ-3 non ported on the front. These heads transform just about
    every drum I have put them on to a real thumper. You wouldn't use them on
    an 18, they deaden right up, but are magic on 22's.

    Not trying to beat Pearl out of their four bucks, but a piece of bicycle tire
    inner tube attached with contact cement works just fine. Supplement that with
    Plasti-Dip painted on the contact surfaces of the pedal.

    That assumes you have a piece of inner tube, contact cement, and Plasti-Dip in
    the house already. Otherwise, four bucks is better, I suppose.

    Yeah, those heads are far from "wide open."
  14. You can also use double sided tape, the thin stuff to hold them on.

    That looks like something I could use for my sliding bass drum cow bell
    mount, right? I've got wooden hoops, also.
  17. I use it for that. works great. Don't forget to take the blue protective
    plastic off. I used it for years before I finally figured out why the damn
    thing was blue.

    Come on, Dan. You know it is far better to leave all the subtleties of
    muffling to the design and marketing guys at Remo, Evans and Aquarian. Why
    would a drummer want to customize his muffling to the situation at hand,
    when there are so many factory preset solutions available? With each
    demanding you both buy ($$$) and swap out heads every time you want to go
    from say preset #1 - "wide open - open" to preset #2 - "wide open - drier &
    funkier"? :)
