Port Holes

I'm not too sure about them.
Should I just get a new bass drum head with the hole or get one of those Aquarian port hole cutting template and do it myself (but how the hell do I do that without messing up the head itself?)?

Bear with me.
:p

Any advice is appreciated.

I think they're called Bass O's, (not sure) But theyre a chrome ring around the port. They strengthen it a bit and look cool :wink: i had one on my kick until a certain ex band member busted the head. and if your trick enough, you can put it on your next head with out to much effort. good thing check em out.

Put the bass drum head on the floor
Get a small plate and put it on the drum head
And then use a sharp craft knife and cut around the plate
make sure its not to in the centre, so move it slightly to the left or right.

I did this and got the most perfect hole possible.

the colored holes are called "holz" and they're sick.
you just have to be very delicate and careful when you're putting them in, or else it will tear your head.

Cutting with a knife/blade/xacto is never really reliable
However, if you want a hole as big as a plate, it will be hard to find something that large and round that you can heat up
