Drumprintz has introduced its new drum placement marking system to provide drummers with a way to outline their drumkit's footprint on a drum rug for faster, easier, and more consistent setup. Emir Simbirdi, President of Royal Drum Products, says," Drummers are unique individuals, each having their own preferences, styles, musical tastes, and ambitions. Over time this uniqueness leads to a particular setup that defines the drummer's individuality and enhances their playing ability. The precise placement of the tom-toms, snare drums, stands, and pedals is a culmination of many adjustments (and fine-tuning) made by the drummer over time, reflecting playing style, ergonomic needs, and component preference. Once the setup is perfected, the biggest challenge then becomes replication of that setup at a new location. Drumprintz solves that problem.
The Drumprint product concept is designed to address the replication challenge by creating a footprint of a drummer's drum kit components on a drum rug which can then be transported from place to place.
Components such as stands and pedals, are outlined using the uniquely designed Drumprint Brand Drum Placement Marking System Marking Strips which adhere to commercially available drum rugs as shown in the depiction below.
Each Drumprint package comes with a basic set of Marking Strips, enough for 5 stands and two pedals. Once all drum components are outlined using the marking strips, and the footprint is created, the drum kit can be removed and the rug can be rolled up. The strips remain adhered to the drum rug through the rug's rolling/unrolling process. Be sure to keep cymbal/tom stand radial arms and center posts locked tightly in place, only collapsing the stand legs to ensure positioning can be duplicated at the next location.
