Re: DW and Gretsch

I think that this might be a reasonable hope. I'm not really sure what to thin of the acquisition. But the guy who owns my local drum shop keeps telling me to hold on to my Gretsch Ribbon mahogany...

Re: ddrum Paladin

I also had a Stage Custom kit and it was very well made. I had a chance to look over a Premier APK bop kit, which is really cheap, and it was far better than the ddrum kit in terms of quality. ...

Re: ddrum Paladin

I'm not sure I agree with this. I've had several kits that were under $1000 and did not have the kinds of problems this ddrum kit had. The gouges in the shell next to the screws were really...

Re: DW and Gretsch

I was talking with the owner of a local drum shop today about the DW acquisition of Gretsch. He said that right now there is virtually no communication with Gretsch--he wouldn't even know where to...

ddrum Paladin

I have not seen much on the ddrum Paladin line up here, so I thought I would offer a brief review based upon my experience with the Paladin maple bop kit. I picked up the kit from a local drum shop....

Re: Chinese Maple vs. Canadian Maple vs. North American Maple?

Is the difference in sound a product of the differences in the woods? Or is it a product of manufacturing differences, number of plies, orientation of the plies, types of lugs used, heads, etc.? It...

Re: Chinese Maple vs. Canadian Maple vs. North American Maple?

If this were the reason, it would make more sense. However, I'm unconvinced that this is the reason for these comparisons, because the argument revolves around which woods is "better" rather than...

Re: Chinese Maple vs. Canadian Maple vs. North American Maple?

Having read through this thread I'm fairly amazed at the absurdity of the issue. It doesn't matter if it's Chinese, North American, Swedish, or Martian maple. If it sounds good to your ear then...

Re: THE GOOD SNARE THREAD

Here is my most recent acquisition. This is a Canopus maple snare in a zebrawood finish. It is one of only 15 made. I picked it up at the Canopus store in Tokyo this summer. It's an amazing shop...

Re: Yamaha Drums

Re: DW Design Series

I own this kit and the 12" doesn't choke out dynamically. Nor do they sound "thin" in terms of tone. Actually, it's a great sounding kit. I put Acquarian Modern Vintage III heads on and they sound...

Re: DW Frequent Flyer Kit

I really only play jazz. I don't listen to rock and, obviously, don't play it. So other than "loud" I have no idea what would be necessary for it to be versatile enough to use for rock. I'm just...

Re: DW Frequent Flyer Kit

I said I would post a few more thoughts after my first gig with the FF kit. I suppose I do this at my own risk, as no doubt the DW haters will respond by saying that anything positive I might write...

Re: DW Frequent Flyer Kit

I think MyDentity is one of the most stupid names I've ever heard for, well, anything. Whenever I hear it, I think of George McFly saying, "you are my density." And, yes, I do take my drums...

Re: DW Frequent Flyer Kit

Thanks. I'm glad a few people actually understood what I was getting at. For some reason when someone makes a positive comment about DW, a lot of people assume that they are criticizing every other...

Re: DW Frequent Flyer Kit

As long as you don't make my mistake and buy a DW kit you should be fine.

Re: DW Frequent Flyer Kit

Thanks Mongrel. I'm glad someone found the review useful. I agree on the price/quality relationship. When you look at a lot of very expensive kits, what you are paying for is the finish and other...

Re: DW Frequent Flyer Kit

And I don't think everyone likes BMWs or sees them as the best car. It was just an example. I could have said Cadillac, Rolls Royce, Porsche, Jaguar. Whatever. I just happen to drive a BMW so...

Re: DW Frequent Flyer Kit

I take your point, Bo. I'm not saying that DWs are more musical than any other brand. What I am saying is to my ear, this particular drum set is very musical. I like the way it sounds. I'm not...

Re: DW Frequent Flyer Kit

Just a quick note for clarity in case someone is interested in this kit. The wrap isn't really WMP. It's an onyx and they call it White Onyx. The pattern is different from WMP, although it looks...

Re: DW Frequent Flyer Kit

Read more carefully, Artstar. I didn't put the FF kit there, I put DW there. DW has a lot in common with BMW and Apple. It makes great products that are marketed well.

Re: DW Frequent Flyer Kit

I'm not an anything guy. I've had a lot of different drum sets and I have no brand loyalty. I have quality loyalty. Quality = both sound quality and construction. If it sounds good to my ears (and...

Re: DW Frequent Flyer Kit

The real question is, do I care who makes the Frequent Flyer? Answer = no. They sound great. If little elves from the north pole make it, that's fine with me. As for the quotation, you are...
