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 ...
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.
Well, lug used to be there, so we´ll gonna search the remaining screws.
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.
Taking the tom or toms out, we nedd our Bass drum to be disengaged from any equipment.
after disengaged from toms and pedal or pedals, we got to wind out the crews from the lugs.
because there´s a second lug broken, but we´ll see...
so we did it...with the screws, so we take the ring and head out to start on the real job.
Notice the order of the screws, It´s lacking of one.
Take out the old screws, or be sure the holes to be open.
wind screws out.
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.
both sides of springs, push it, sometimes get really hard, so if you do it with something else, be careful of pieces to fly.
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...
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 push...
so it means double sides, then attach the "original" sleeve to it, so it can hold it.
carefully, when its there, attach it with soft hits.
when attached, go for the screws and go to the inside of the bass drum.
Do it hard, the hardest you can.
after that, you can start to put the head on, the ring, and screws on the lugs =]
Like brand new, now we can rock it on!! \m/
you better keep´em
well, hope you comment, and liked this post, I did it with dedication and willing it to be useful for someone here, so, keep on hitting hard my fellas...
