Well, I just made a boo boo with this drum set

I put 1" tom lugs on the bass drum...tom lugs don't have the height for the tension rods to screw in straight if you use them on a bass drum....so I'm getting the 2" BASS DRUM lugs shipped to me as we speak. I plan on drilling another hole an inch below the lower lug hole for the 2 in lug....then i'll have an extra hole in the middle...I could just leave it and use them for my air vents all 20 of them!...but I think i'm going to try to stick LED lights in the holes and somehow use a trigger to light them up every time I kick it. I'll keep you posted....

Another idea would be to use rubber gromments to lift the lugs to the required clearance height.  If you look at some drum kits, such as the Gretsch Catalina, you'll see that they use the regular lugs on the bass drums.  However...they lift them with a rubber spacer.  This facilitates the hoop clearance needed.
