Drumstick Reflectivity and/or Replacement

Drumstick Reflectivity and/or Replacement

Postby dannerino » Sat Apr 21, 2018 6:52 am

What are the tips of those darn drumsticks made of? And why do they wear out?

Is there anything that can be done to bring a non-responsive drumstick tip back to life? Is there a substitute fabric that can be used? I can't drum with only one stick. Now that I've grown hopelessly addicted to your product and have seen my total beginner's drumming skills improve tremendously, what am I to do?

While I'm asking questions, should I download the latest version? Or do I have the latest with 1.0.24? It wasn't clear on the website how to download updates.

The balls are covered in an expensive retroreflective tape that isn't available off the shelf and there is no good substitute as the tape we use has specific reflectivity properties for which Aerodrums is optimized.
We're aware that the balls can degrade over time if not handled with care so we do sell replacement ball kits for customers that need them: http://aerodrums.com/ball-kit/

The latest update brings Aerodrums to version 1.1. As noted on the installer web page, if you're on Windows, this update requires downloading and running a separate updater instead of using the "Check for Updates" wizard.
The major change in this update is the addition of a 3D visualization mode (https://aerodrums.com/3d-update/). This will obviously work a lot better if your ball markers are in good shape.
With your Aerodrums product key you can access the downloads here : http://aerodrums.com/installer/
