Re: Santos rosewood snare video

I loooooved that drum. Low and medium tunings were very nice in my opinion, and the high tuning sounded like something a high-tuning person would like! The video arrangement was good too.

Re: What experience do you have making your own drum kits?

I ordered stave shells with drilling, bearing edges, and finishing done, and assembled everything else myself. I don't trust myself with the tools, but I knew that 1) I wanted a solid shell, 2) I...

Re: Using splash cymbals

Yeah. Where does one crash? Where does one bark the hats? Where does one hit the bell of the ride (never mind how one hits it)? For me, it's mostly just intuition from listening and playing a lot of...

Re: Help with rims mounts + stuff

I can't imagine that Gibraltar's hex rods, ostensibly being designed to fit Mapex's mounts, would be catastrophically different in size.

Doesn't look like DFD has any upright hex rod mounts, but...

Re: "Recording Heavy Drums" tutorial by Glenn Fricker

Very low? Well, relative to the rack toms, I suppose. That pic makes my elbows tired from just looking at it!

Re: Who builds steambent snares to order?

I was going to mention them as well... depends on your price range, of course, but they're certainly a step above some of the "big names" mentioned here. As far as I know a lot of the places just buy...

Re: How Does Your Band Set Up on Stage?

The usual way.

I like the way Transatlantic sets up as well, it has a really interesting atmosphere to it. Might want to angle the drumset a little more towards the audience though.

I listened to the first "joke" and couldn't willingly subject myself to any more of that trash. Phew. 😌

Re: A little thunderstorm - Tour zebrano video

Now these, I feel justified in saying, sound like my Purpleheart kit! Such strong sound. Great stuff.

Re: New Tama S.L.P 14x7 Birch Bubinga Snare ?

It was introduced last year as one of their new SLP models, along with the Black Steel, I think (this year is the G-Birch and Dynamic Bronze). Look it up, Drum Center of Portsmouth has a video for it.

Re: Shell Tap Tone

Temple blocks, wood blocks, etc. work as a very different mechanism compared to two-headed ply drums with heavy hardware bolted everywhere, though.

Log drums + drumset sticks = broken log drums...

Re: 22" x 12" bass drum - 2015 Origin photo's / spec's

WOW. I haven't said it in a while, but these just exude complete craft and thought. Every little detail is a master's work unto itself. And I bet they sound okay too! ;)

I'm guessing the choice of...

Re: Saturn V vs. Renown

I'd say, in just a general sense, the Saturns will have a more "hyped", modern sound, while the Renowns may have more mids/warmness. They probably will also be a little more focused in terms of...

Re: Buck County Drums

I saw that thread as well and the argument was over the direction of the grain, evidently. I couldn't care less about that – it just seems like a weirdly compromised design anyways. Gluing a solid...

Re: Buck County Drums

Saw some feature from MD about their snare concept which is a thin ply shell wrapped around a solid shell with the bearing edges on the solid shell. What a pointless idea!

Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

I'm not going to dignify that with a response.

Glad to see that others are recognizing the bullshit nature of the relationships in this movie as well.

Re: Kickport, does it really make a difference??

Haven't had very good experiences with the Kickport. The installation process is a crapshoot as well. However, it does seem that some people find an improvement. Just something to try.

Re: Catalina vs Concept vs Mydentity vs ???

I agree, in this price-range, with these ply shells– the difference is not going to be excessive. I'd recommend using the savings to buy a nice cymbal or two and try out some new heads on your...

Re: Ludwig Copper Phonic

They should just use rivets and pre-tension the heads so you just have to buy a new drum constantly.

Re: Ludwig Copper Phonic

Have you seen Crush's hand-hammered copper snares? 13x7" and 14x5.5". Super bulky throw-off, but, y'know.

Re: Ludwig Copper Phonic

I'm more making fun of their marketing speak - one-headed, hemispheric drums are pretty dissimilar to "normal" drums in terms of response. I'm sure that their experience with copper does nicely for...
