Re: Taming cymbals

A while back I decided to try to tone down an old ZHT ride I had. I find that 2 moongels on opposite sides of the ride works best.

Re: Tama Starclassics

It may not be maple, but my birch Starclassic kit was the best decision I've made. Go for it.

Re: How can I tune my drums to sound like this?

I have coated heads. How tight should the reso and batter be, and how tight should they be in relation to each other? Also, how would I get that snare sound? Thanks.

Re: My 100% Birch Starclassic

I was planning to get a set of resonants but after I bought the kit I could only afford batters. You're right on the sizes, but I also have a 10" tom that I'm not currently using.

Re: Scientific question: relation between bd size and music genre?

Jazz, Funk, Rockabilly, Blues, etc: 20". I find that it's very versatile without overpowering.

20", 14", 10" (came as a 5 piece), 12", and 14". They're a few inches deeper than normal though; I forgot the exact sizes.

Re: My 100% Birch Starclassic

Yeah. The kit was about 10 years old when I bought it, so it's more of a faded yellow silk now. It adds a lot to the vintage feel.

Re: My 100% Birch Starclassic

I saw this on craigslist and couldn't identify it? Is it worth the $10 investment? Thanks.

Bossa Nova Drumming

Re: First Post and a question regarding snares

So if I'm getting a piccolo, I should get the pearl one? Can you recommend any other versatile snares for a decent price?

Re: First Post and a question regarding snares

I'd be using it as a primary snare, but I also assume that it would be getting use as a secondary. At the moment I'm playing a lot of jazz and bossa nova if it makes a difference.
