they DO make a difference. i'm not a fan of rims mounts, due to all of the bounce you get. so, i'm looking in to the pearl mounts. they look more sturdy. not sure if they'll cut more tone from...

Re: "Trapped" in the Groove

this made me think... listen to what they're playing. they may not be playing too much, but you need to find your spot to fill. most good drummers say you need to open your ears and listen. you...

Re: My Supraphonic 6.5 x 14 sounds less than magical

general rule of thumb is: more snare wires = less drum tone. less wires = more drum tone. on a shallower drum, i'd go with more wires, more sensitivity. not much tone to be had there, anyway. ...

Re: 17" tom???

nah, it had to be some moron mis-measuring. nothing i have ever seen with rogers has ever shown them making a 17. in fact, i can't find evidence of ANY company making a 17.

anybody ever hear these? how do the "lug rings" attach to the shells? i don't see how the shells resonate better than lugs if the rings are just glued to the shell around the edge like they appear...
