Yeah woodblocks aren't really quiet either, but quieter IMHO, and I prefer the sound.

My bracket is by Danmar, it is adjustable to different widths of holes
in the woodblocks. The attachment to the pedal is by Gibraltar,
the pedal is a vintage Rogers.

So many hardware alternatives, just try and be creative.

If that block of yours is made of maple, they did a helluva job on the stain.

If I match it to my playing area floor finish, it will have to be made of concrete... somehow I don't think that will resonate all that well! :roll:

Thanks for pics on attachments, gives me some ideas .
As long as I'll be making...I'll make a couple of different sizes...I'll only know what it sounds like, after being glued together.

If I may chime in: That adapter of BnB´s looks like the LP Gajate Garcia bracket.

Un-intended pun there buddy?
We're talking about jam blocks vs wood blocks....shouldn't you have clacked in? :)

You make my day! :lol:
No, due to a lack of control of English that was not intended. But, thinking twice about it:
One can´t brush aside the fact that drummers always stick to the terms of of music to hit the nail right on the head - in other words: conga´nough of cymbalic talk like this :wink:

Better hit the stick right on the head....or you'll have a head with a nail hole in it!! :P

That´s why I love the English language: it is rich of double, triple ... meanings - that´s cool for puns,
but also challenging for foreign learners like me.:mrgreen:

You could use one of these, I think Gibraltar makes an adaptor for it..

Yeah!.........
That ought to give a solid sound, and blend nicely with my garage decor.
I'll need to upgrade to the sledgehammer beater.

Gibraltar...I just got that! :lol: :lol: :lol:
