Introduction: Replacing a Bass Drum Lug.
Hi partners out there, well this is my first post, hope you like it and hope could be useful for somebody ; I´ve been doing things from myself a long time ago, but this is the first time I take time to show; I´m an average drum player, and learned things practicing, because I´m very empiric.
Step 1: Well First, This Is the Broken Lug, Because of a Cheap Kit and Hard Playing
it broke, so we´ll need a new lug, usually you can get the original bass drum lug, but we´ll use a double lug.
Step 2: Place.
Well, lug used to be there, so we´ll gonna search the remaining screws.
Step 3: This Is It
All equipment we will need, notice that´s a double lug, is originally form snare drums, but we´ll convert it to a bass drum lug.
Step 4: So We Start.
Taking the tom or toms out, we nedd our Bass drum to be disengaged from any equipment.
Step 5: Disabling the Screws.
after disengaged from toms and pedal or pedals, we got to wind out the crews from the lugs.
Step 6: I�m Double Working.
because there´s a second lug broken, but we´ll see...
Step 7: 1...2..3...
Step 8: Finally Done.
so we did it...with the screws, so we take the ring and head out to start on the real job.
Step 9: There Is It, Ready to Be Worked Out.
Notice the order of the screws, It´s lacking of one.
Step 10: Pop�em Out.
Take out the old screws, or be sure the holes to be open.
Step 11: We Go for Our New Lug.
wind screws out.
Step 12: Like This.
our lug got to be looking like this, so we are targetting that spring in the center, specially the sleeves in tne extremes of srping.
Step 13: Push.
both sides of springs, push it, sometimes get really hard, so if you do it with something else, be careful of pieces to fly.
Step 14: Sleeve.
this is the sleeve we´re taking out, the snare drum screws are different, so we must convert, got find the broken Lug, and search that piece, when you got it, keep it.
Step 15: Seems Shitty.
BUT, we must look for the old sleeve AND spring, because is bigger and brings best results; so we put it like this behind the sleeve, that way it pushes that piece against lug.
Step 16: Remember Is a Double Lug
so it means double sides, then attach the "original" sleeve to it, so it can hold it.
Step 17: Like This
Step 18: Then Attach to the Bass Drum Like This
carefully, when its there, attach it with soft hits.
Step 19: Exactly.
when attached, go for the screws and go to the inside of the bass drum.
Step 20: You Are Getting It.
Do it hard, the hardest you can.
Step 21: Got to Be Like This
after that, you can start to put the head on, the ring, and screws on the lugs =]
Step 22: There It Is!
Like brand new, now we can rock it on!! \m/
Step 23: By the Way, Remember Sleeves Are Not the Same, So Don�t Throw Them Away!
you better keep´em
Step 24: And That�s All...!
