    What trigger and module do you use?

    I'm looking to trigger my acrylic kick drum for live purpose. I was thinking about the Roland RT10K and the Alesis DM-5. I was wondering if anyone has any input or other suggestions. I've never used triggers before and could use some advice. Thanks!

The producer told me to really lay into the drums in order to catch the power and intensity...

    Tips on drilling acrylic?

    I'm building a acrylic kit and was wondering if anyone has had personal experience drilling the shells sucsessfully. I've done some research and have heard all kinds of conflicting advice. I'll be using RCI shells and don't want to destroy them in the process. I've drilled and modified drums...

I cut a recessed area at the overlapped top and bottom of the wrap and positioned it on the shell to exact DW specs. I then had a...
