We can professionally install port holes in your bass drum head. You choose the type, size and placement of each bass drum port hole.
Port Hole Options
Having a drum port gives the drum better projection and more attack. You can easily add or remove dampening and quickly change your drum sound by having a ported bass drum head. We suggest installing a mic hole port if you play live or where a sound tech would need to mic your drum for recording. The most requested bass drum hole size is 4 inches because it works best with printed graphics. Try and keep bass drum holes 1.5 to 3 inches away from the hoop edge when creating your design.
Simple Port Hole
