Re: Wooden Bass Drum Hoops

You want the hoop to have as much contact as possible with the aluminum collar of the drum head to promote even tension all around. Therefore it's ALWAYS the flat side toward the head, regardless of...

Favorite drum shop in Los Angeles

This is for AzHeat; I thought I could send him a PM with images attached, but apparently there's no way to do that using vBulletin.

Anyway, Pro Drums Hollywood may be the "legendary" shop around...

Re: Was there a golden age of drum manufacturing

When it comes to the shells, I think the high-end kits back then would be considered at least mid to high-end today. But you'd have to overlook some of the odd tom sizes and configurations that were...

Re: Two Gretsch kit scores

Heck, you could even go the used Renown route and save some money while getting matching lugs and hoops (if you go with an older, pre RN2 Renown). Then rewrap with the Precision black sparkle and...

Re: The silent drummer

If you say you're keeping your volume in check but they're still saying you're too loud, another thing to consider is that it's not your volume—but that perhaps that your parts are too busy?

I...

Re: Soundproofing small room in apartment

I wouldn't even bother trying to soundproof a room in an apartment—it's just an exercise in futility. It'll never work. The much better option is to outfit your kit with mesh heads (i.e. Remo...

Re: Drum department upstairs??

The West LA Guitar Center has drums on the first floor... BUT the way the parking garage is, the main entrance is actually on the 2nd floor. The 2nd floor is also where they sell guitars and basses....

Re: Rank the brands

I respectfully disagree. A DW Collector's kit sounds very different from a USA Custom, which sounds very different from a steam-bent Craviotto, which sounds very different from a Recording Custom,...

Re: Rank the brands

I know this comment wasn't directed at me, but WTF, why are you denigrating someone else's opinion? If he prefers MIJ Yamahas, who are you to tell him he's wrong?

For what it's worth, I think...

Re: Rank the brands

There's no reason to get all uppity about "all brands being good" or whatever. The OP was how would YOU rank the brands. Everyone has preferences and opinions, regardless if they're just based on...

Re: DW Design Series vs. Gretsch Renown

From the DW website:

True-Pitch® Tuning Rods
To give drummers even more control over their sound, DW created its patented True-Pitch® rod system. The rods feature 5mm threads rather than the...

Re: DW Design Series vs. Gretsch Renown

You listed the "fine thread screws" (aka "true pitch tension rods") as a pro. I respectfully disagree with that. While they're meant to help fine tune your drums due to the added thread count, in...

Re: DW Design Series vs. Gretsch Renown

I think you've answered your own question. Get the Renowns. The DWs are fine, even though I'm not really a huge fan. But the Renowns are something special, especially at that price point. I've A/B'd...

Re: Your Favorite COB Snare

I have the Brooklyn 5x14 COB snare, which I believe uses the exact same shell as the USA Custom, the only difference being the hoops. I haven't had any issues with it, and it does sound very good.

Re: Mapex Saturn walnut V

Very recently, as in the past couple of months, Guitar Center has been blowing out 4-piece Saturn V kits (10, 12, 16, 22) in the Red Strata Pearl wrap for $699 I believe. Possibly $799, I can't quite...

Or you could just learn to tune your drums. It's not rocket science, folks.

Re: Do Cover Bands 'Simplify' Songs?

This reminds me of when I joined a Tears for Fears tribute band. We play the album version of Head Over Heels, which goes into a live version of Broken at the end. In the 'Broken' ending (which is in...

Re: I saw "Bohemian Rhapsody"

Re: Looking for Gretsch New Classic Floor Tom

You could also look into finding a matching drum wrap. So if you find that FT for sale in a different color, you can simply buy that and the matching wrap. Here are a few I found that may work. You...

Re: Torn Between 2 New Snares

I wouldn't say I've had a particularly bad experience with PDP. But I've hit more than a few over the years, and they run the gamut from sounding great for the price, to sounding like crap. The one...

Re: I saw "Bohemian Rhapsody"

Agreed. The drumheads also have modern Remo logos. They also briefly show the pedal, which I believe was a Premier, and that looked too modern to be an 80s model as well. I'm sure they could have...

Re: Torn Between 2 New Snares

Since you say you're a hard hitter, do you play a lot of rimshots? If so, I'd stay clear of the wood hoops.

But regardless, my pick would be the Ludwig, hands down. While I haven't played either...

Re: Help a Dad out buying used set for son.

This is why.



So he was going to pass on the Pearl kit just because he didn't like the ZBTs that it came with!!! This solution gives him that kit plus the Zildjian S cymbals he prefers for a...
