Yamaha Custom Recording

Unread post by RatherBeGigging »

I have a 1980’s set of Yamaha Custom Recording Drums (12/13/16/22).
I made a discovery tonight that I could use your help with. I was trying out
a few different tom head possibilities (EC2 and Pinstripe). I have been quite
frustrated by this kit, because the 12 and 13 toms did not sing the way I think they should.

When I strike the 12 and 13 drums OFF the bass drum mount, they are wonderfully
resonant. When I put these drums ON the bass drum mount they both sound severely choked
and thuddy.

Any thoughts or advice? Are you familiar with this situation? How to remedy?

I greatly look forward to your reply!
