Re: Some Pearl Reference Pure porn ;)

Love the kit and non-traditional set up! Another option for a different kick pedal feel is to switch out the beaters. I generally use the Pearl quad beaters on my DD as I never liked the stock felt...

Re: The matching snare

I prefer to have a matching snare for my high-end kits for potential resale value if nothing else, so three of my kits have them. In fact my Tama Star 6x13 sounds so incredible that I was going to...

Re: Bass vs. drums challenge video - released here first :)

My that kit in the center sounded so phat and full. Well done Andy. Superb playing by all involved.

Re: Snare Trouble

I'm sure you can get a better sound out of this drum but be aware that the snares are the weak link in kits at this price point. I once owned a maple Pro M kit, predecessor to the Meridians, and the...

Re: Jeff Beck w/ Vinnie (Full Crossroads 07 Set)

Why does Vinnie overplay (at times)? Because he can.

Re: Ludwig P-85 rant

The same factories may be making hardware for most manufacturers but the specs have to be different. My high-end Tama and Pearl drums use metal of a higher grade/quality than Ludwig uses. Don't need...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

This little fella matches my kit. It is a 6x13 that has such great pop to it. Fun to play.

Re: I've played only TAMA for years, looking to switch up

I'm a Tama guy with three kits. Love them all. My Pearl Reference kit is pretty awesome as well but at the end of the day, the Tamas are the best built, best looking, and best sounding non-custom...

Re: Drums vs. cymbals

You can tune a drum but you can't tuna fish, or a cymbal. So far cymbals are the unanimous choice.

Re: In need of a shallow bass drum, what's out there?

My solution for a cramped stage was to purchase a djembe. Bandleader loves it. I watched one "how to" video on You Tube and I was off and running. Best load ins/outs I've ever had!

Indeed. As a drummer, I'm surprisingly not a fan of drum solos but I was awed. The groove was never abandoned. Wow!

Re: Walnut stave snare being built for me

Congrats on your new snare. To be honest, I have a hard time distinguishing between wood species from just listening to them. My walnut stave (Tama Star), however, has a very distinctive tone to it...

I already own a Starclassic bubinga select kit in a hand-painted green marbled finish. I also own a Star walnut stave snare, an older 2004ish Exotix limited edition bubinga snare, and a Starclassic...

Re: Tama Star = $$$$

Drums at this price point just don't sell well. Doesn't mean they aren't amazing, well made drums. Usually just means there is a very limited market for those kits. Owners of PHX kits and SQ2 kits...

Re: Tama Starclassic (MIJ) or Pearl Ref Pure

Re: Do you really change drum settings while gigging?

I always bring a backup snare. It's rare that I ever get a decent sound check. If my primary snare isn't working out in a particular room, I've occasionally swapped out snare drums in between sets to...
