  1. Or the modified "no Hovis heads" I saw on at least one occasion
  2. Couldn't agree more. My Sei bass was the first I had, and I got an Eggle guitar with one, and it feels great under the fingers, especially on guitar. It's one of those subliminal things that makes playing just that bit nicer. The fact it looks cool is just a bonus.
  3. Ebony. It was a factory short run version. That's mainly why I went for it.
  4. Loving the binding on these. Very classy.
  5. Poplar burl looks great on those Mensinger Cazpar basses. Looking forward to this one in particular.
  6. I'd say if you're starting into recording a kit, having a hole makes it a lot easier to adjust and tune your damping inside the drum. My old kit didn't even have a resonant head, and I got perfectly usable recordings like that with the mic sitting inside on a folded piece of carpet against the head.
  7. Yes, nice mix! Love the percussion recording. Bass sounds great too. The only thing I'm not keen on is the guitar tone, but that's just personal taste.
  8. Plain old redwood? Nice one!
  9. I wonder if the picture was the casting call for this video? :
  10. The Ambassador I'll be using just arrived today. It was half the price of a ported head, so not much to lose. Didn't want experiment with the nice new Gretsch logo head! Thanks for videos, I didn't even think of YouTube. I don't have any tins of anything that big, but then, I'm not American...

  12. I've just bought a new resonant head for my new kit's bass drum with the intention of cutting a hole for the mic and inserting damping. The standard size appears to be 5 inches, but as it's an 18 inch head, should I go smaller, or is it not that important? I'm just concerned it might ruin any remaining resonance if the hole is too large in proportion to the overall head size. Any thoughts?
  13. Although it's not the same, there are some carbon fibre wrap/laminates that look pretty good and would be a lot less trouble for a scratchplate
  14. Phones take pretty good pictures these days
  15. Is that a sort of double relief on the back? What's the thought behind that?
  16. Didn't Warwick's tag line used to be "the sound of wood " ?
