Default Re: Latest Score: Stewarts In Orange/Gold

I gigged the Stewarts again the other night and with better heads and proper tuning, they sounded reasonably decent. I had to tape some tissues to the batter head on the gig, because the bass drum was ringing all over the place and was unsuitable for mic'ing, so when I got home, I cut a felt strip and installed it. Should make a difference.

So far, so good. I ordered a white Stewart bass drum logo decal for the batter head on Fleabay.
