Re: Which set is best?

Definitely agree, be patient when looking for used kits because it's the only disadvantage of buying used: the market purely dictates your selection, and opposed to buying new where you can get...

Re: tom angles!!!!

The first one is pretty silly, and you gotta love someone actually playing that. Also, I love it when people take the time to post a short paragraph on their ad but provide very little/no real...

Re: I need some advice on upgrading my drums from Ludwigs to Tamas...?

I got my 2008 Superstar hyperdrive 4pc for ~550 USD used a couple months ago and you should really give one of these kits a try. I'm not sure what your hang-up would be with the sizes, they sound...

I am in almost the exact scenario as you, I've been playing for about as long and am constantly battling with comparing myself to other drummers. I've found it to be really negative if you let...

Re: Anyway to make snare wires stop resonnating when hitting bass drum ?

I'm no tuning expert, but I don't think the snare wire straightness would have a huge effect on the amount of sympathetic buzz you're getting. Making sure the snares are straight and even is mostly...

Re: Any advice on mounting bass drum as tom?

I'm guessing you're looking to mount it on the floor to the far left or far right of the rest of your kit. The only thought that leaps to mind off hand is removing the bass drum spurs and trying to...

Re: TOM TUNING

Looking for some general guidance here: What pitches should I be going for with these shell sizes: 12x7 rack tom, 16x14 floor, 24x18 kick, and 14x6.5 snare. They're the shallow hyperdrive toms and...

Re: Joe Tomino

100% agree, this guy is very underrated, the whole band is (Dub Trio). Tomino just finished a tour with the Fugees I believe, and he's played with a number of artists. Moreso, the band's bassist Stu...

Re: Question on Purchase

I would try negotiating the pedal out of the deal. See if he'll exclude the pedal and lower the price of the kit, then use your savings to buy a good quality used single pedal (unless you have your...

Re: $1000 to spend - What kit am I after?

For sure, I'm going to go with ebay or craigslist in the end i'm sure.
