Re: May I hear your Meridian Maples?

I started with the Stage Customs as well (Raven Black Fade finish, beautiful!) and upgraded to the Maple Custom Absolutes in Black Sparkle. Unless you are in a big hurry or want a specific finish on...

Re: Yamaha Drums

Been trying a new tom arrangement lately and really like it. Much better flow than the
"standard" setup with two toms mounted on the bass drum!

Maple Custom Absolute in Black Sparkle, 14 x 6.5 DW...

Re: Mapex vs Yamaha!

I picked up a 5 piece Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute ( 10, 12, 14, 16, 22 x 16 kick) with hardware & bags on eBay for $1100. It was in perfect condition and sounds AWESOME!

I like Mapex also (have a...

Re: Yamaha Drums

Love the Black Sparkle Sunburst color! I actually bought an 8" tom to complete the kit and couldn't find my exact finish to I had to get the Sunburst instead. It looks great under stage lighting!

Re: Yamaha Drums

Well, traded up from my Stage customs and bought a lightly used set of Maple Custom Absolutes in Black Sparkle. As nice as the SCs are/ were, there is a definite "you get what you pay for"...

Re: Recording With Overheads

I make the singer ride a stationary bike that's hooked up to a generator!

actually, there's a 20amp outlet right outside my unit, so I just run an extension cord inside to a power condidtioner.

Re: Recording With Overheads

Thanks! I'm in the process of moving to a larger unit this week. Should be a little more of a challenge since it's about twice the size and has 20- 24 ft ceilings.

I'll post some pics as soon as...

Re: Recording With Overheads

+ 1 for the moving blanket idea. My band rehearses (and records) in a 15' x 15' storage unit and it sounds very good considering such a modest investment, and everything is easily removable. I hung...

Re: Musicians without Honor

My friend owned a very large rehearsal studio in Vegas for about 10 years and I've heard more horror stories than you can imagine. Usually the source of the trouble was thrasher bands made up of...

Re: Free drumless Backing Tracks here

Does anyone know of a source (preferably free) with percussion backing tracks? There are a lot of songs that I want my band to play that have layered percussion such as congas and/ or shakers. An...

Re: Which Electric Kit?

The two MAIN manufacturers of mesh head technology are Roland and Hart Dynamics (at least in the U.S.). The Roland heads (which can be used on any drum shell) are two ply and the Hart Magnum heads...

Re: Which Electric Kit?

I played electric drums exclusively for 3 years and can tell you without any doubt whatsoever that if you're going to be spending a serious amount of time rehearsing, the mesh pads will be better on...

Re: Questions about Oak, Tour & Stage Custom Yamaha?

I love my Stage Custom Advantage in Raven Black, although I still am fiddling to find the right head combo (I guess that's not any different than any other kit)...

I paid $900 for a 6 piece (14 x...

Re: Snare drums... can't decide...

Agreed. I obsessed over which one to get and was actually surprised that I liked the Steel model best. It has just the right amount of ring without the overtones. Like I said previously, my friend...

Re: Snare drums... can't decide...

I have the Black Panther 14 x 5.5 hammered steel with the 2.3mm powerhoops and it is awesome. I let my friend borrow it for a gig (he's been playing a DW edge collector's series for a couple of...

Re: Transporting your drums and "load in"

I probably SHOULD be looking for a workout in everything! For me, it's more of an efficiency thing because I hate running back and forth to my car, especially if the load in point is far from the...

Transporting your drums and "load in"

There may be other threads on this subject, but I couldn't find a thread specifically on this subject. I'm curious as to what everyone kind of cases and dollys or similar devices are being used for...

Re: Snare drums... can't decide...

+1 for the 14 x 6.5 no matter which model you choose. I have the 14 x 5 BB super sensitive and as nice as it is, I'm always envious when I hear the deeper shell model.

At least I got a screamin'...

Re: Yamaha Drums

The SC and RC are Birch and the TC and Maple Custom (now Maple Absolute) are Maple. The construction is higher quality on the more expensive kits and the hardware is much nicer. All you have to do is...

Re: Yamaha Drums

If this is your first experience with Yamaha hardware, I'm sure you'll find that is about the best out there. The chrome is applied by their motorcycle division so it is about as durable as you can...

Re: Yamaha Drums

I'm not actually sure how old they are, but my guess is 2 - 3 years. The new ones that I saw at Guitar Center recently are lacquered and these are wraps. I was also lucky enough to find a brand new,...
