Default How many sand?

How many sand I should put in the bag? I guess 2/3 of the bag. Is there a rule?

Claudio, There is no rule.



You want the beater bag to give when hit it but you don't want so little sand that your hammer hits the table it is sitting on. Some people like them fuller and some less full.


Personally, I'd start at 2/3 full and you can always add more.
