SQ2 on it's way!

Post by Dick Bartling » Sat Sep 02, 2017 1:11 am

I received notice from Sam today that my SQ2 is stateside. I'll get some pics when it arrives. I've got a casino gig next Fri. and Sat., but don't know if I'll have time to get it ready since I have a busy week. I need to install the double tom mount and bass drum mic and rehead it. 18x22 heavy beech BD, 7x8, 8x10, 9x12, 14x14, and 16x16 medium beech toms with African Marble outside.

Nice! You mention "install" the tom mount...are you doing something other than the rocket launcher or standard insertable style?

I'm doing the standard style. I gave serious thought to the rocket launcher, but the heavy beech 18x22 is going to be heavy enough as is. Based on experience installing a mount bracket on my Delite/Designer mongrel BD, I was concerned that the standard factory position wouldn't be quite far enough forward. I'm comfortable doing the work myself. Don't worry, I'll measure and recheck numerous times before I drill. ;)

Congrats Dick, that finish is so damn pretty. Really the best one they've had for natural wood veneer in SQ2.

It's going to be the middle of next week at the earliest before I get it. It got shipped from Nashville late last week, but ended up going to California rather than drop shipped to me in South Dakota. I'll post pics when it arrives.
