Re: How do you feel about buying used records?

I hope that is not the case. I really enjoy firing up the old hi-fi and playing my new or new-to-me a̶l̶b̶u̶m̶, c̶a̶s̶s̶e̶t̶t̶e̶, cd while checking out the liner notes.

I don't care for...

Re: Drum Configuration

Except for it's big brother, the 18 floor tom, who laughs at his little brother's tiny, high pitched sound.

Re: Poll: do you double bass?

I'm a #3.
I used to play a lot more dbl bass, but I noticed that I used it more and more as a crutch. It's currently in the corner while I strengthen my single pedal playing.

When I do use the...

Re: How our perspective changes

I was lucky to have very understanding parents growing up. I got my first kit at 13, and played at full volume in the basement from then until I left at 21. They didn't even complain when my friends...

Re: More Creative on a Larger Kit

I'm a fan of large kits. My fav was a 9pc dbl bass Ludwig Rocker. I'm now playing a 6 pc. It doesn't matter much to me whether I am using 2, 3, or 4 toms. The one thing that bothers me the most is if...

Re: Holy Drum Hoarder Batman!

I see this ad posted on CL every few weeks. Cash only, and you will pay a premium for anything not junk. He wanted 800 for a 402.

Re: Tastefully Overplayed

Not sure about "tastefully overplayed", but Nicko McBrain is one of my favorite drummers. He is pretty busy, but I can't imagine hearing Iron Maiden songs with Phil Rudd sitting in.

Re: Transporting a drum set when homeless?

If the drums mean that much to you, you really need to find a place to stash them and maybe get a pair of bongos as one person suggested. I have never been homeless, but I have lived in places where...

Re: Trimmed down kits

I'm the opposite. I miss the 7 and 9 piece double bass kits. I miss the power toms and bigger tom sizes in general. Give it another 10-20 years and it will probably cycle back around.

Is it just me, or does that floor tom have some seriously long lug bolts?

Re: Buying first kit, 2 options, which kit would you go for?

I would go for the Mapex. The drums are better, and you will hate the cymbals included with the Tama kit real quick.

Re: How do you stabilize a virgin bass drum that jumps up and down?

Make sure your bass drum spurs are all the way out and are biting into the carpet. You might want to try one of these that attach to the front bd hoop:

Re: Ludwig P-85 rant

Bo, I don't know if you've been around Harleys lately, but the new ones haven't leaked oil in a couple of decades. My '05 hasn't leaked a drop, ever. I have a friend with an '03 with over 100,000...

Re: What's the oldest drum gear you own?

I don't have any cool, vintage gear like others here have. This oldest piece I own is a pair of 25 year old Zil A rock hats.

Re: Which wrap for my new Ludwig Classic Maple?

I once had a Ludwig Classic in natural maple finish, and my next kit will be the same. If I were to have a wrapped Luddy kit, I would go for WMP. I would not get the black oyster. I am just tired of...

Re: The worst drum /cymbal purchase you ever made

Late 80's Camber cymbal pre-pack. Trash can lids would of been more musical. A hundred more bucks would of gotten me A's.

Sorry about your misfortunes. Back in the 90's, my parent's basement flooded. My two Ludwig bass drums delaminated. Moisture is not kind to drums. I hope Gretch/dealer/shipper get things sorted out...

Re: 4 piece vs 5 piece kits

Re: Pearl World Series .. question!

The World drum series was a mid-level line one step up from the Exports. The rack is probably worth $200-250-ish. If the drums are in good condition and sound good to you, I guess they are worth $600...
