I know this is talkbass but I figure some people here might have some wisdom that could help my band out with our drum kit. We're gonna try drum forums too but I know a lot of guys here play multiple instruments. Here is the message from my drummer "Hi guys ! Ok so basically i bought a second hand mapex kit a couple of month ago. Everything was fine until recently when the toms 1 and 2 stopped ringing... What happens exactly is that the toms sounds fine when i tune them and even attach them to the mounting but as soon as i plug the mounting into the bass drum they stop ringing. It's like the bass drum is muffling their sound, totally absorbing the resonance... I.ve tried a few things like moving the joints inside the hole in the B-drum, tuning the B-drum differently, nothing works ! Those toms won't ring as soon as they are plugged into to B-drum... Ideas anyone ? PS: the kit is the really basic one from mapex, voyager series "
