Re: Whenever you come across a used drum set, why is it that..............?

I actually always ask about condition of the heads, and pics if possible. My reasoning is that condition of the heads is often indicative of the overall condition of the drums. If the heads are...

Re: The worst drum /cymbal purchase you ever made

Zildjian A Custom Ping ride. Was on the fence at the shop; heard so many glowing reviews, thought maybe I wasnít hearing the true sound at the store. Bought it, played it at a Friday night gig,...

Re: To drill or not to drill?

So you’re saying there’s a chance! Seemed like the writing was on the wall, with how you were gushing about these new Pearls in your other thread. Plus we all know how much you like Pearl, even...

Re: Should I?

Only you can decide if you like the color and the sound of the Tama kit. As far as build quality, Iíve owned a few Tama kits over the years and have always found the build quality to be superb. I...

Re: What is Your Geek Out Drum Thing?

Absolutely. I alternate between VF 5B and 2B these days, depending on how my hands feel. I like the balance and feel of those 2 models. I can use a Vater 5B as well; in between the 2 VF models size...

Re: Namm 2019 rumors

I seriously doubt that new logo design would have gotten past the late, great Robert Zildjian. Although, nothing a little acetone canít fix if you like the sound.

Re: Denting drumheads

You’re a fellow coated ambassador guy, if memory serves me. Maybe drop your toms to JAW, or maybe leave some wrinkles in there. Severely angle your toms. You can do it Arne; where there’s a will...

Re: The magic of a simple kit

I went to a 4 piece years ago out of necessity, when I began gigging a lot. Losing the 2nd rack tom and putting the ride there instead alleviated the shoulder pain I was experiencing. This was...

Re: Denting drumheads

Switch to Diplomat batters, squeeze your sticks with a death grip, start every down stroke above your head (like Tommy Lee). This should help you get the ever elusive dents you are seeking.

23Ē bass drums? Not even DW would be brazen enough to attempt a marketing ploy of that magnitude 😉

Re: I wonder if Neil Peart will ever play again?

Re: The New Tama Starclassic Walnut/Birch

Iím in love with the used B/B kit I picked up a few weeks ago, but that 3 piece with the 14x22 bass drum is my kind of kit. Looking good Tama, keep up the fine work.

Re: Do you have a piece of equipment that you've used since day 1 and still use it regularly?

I have a Tama Lever Glide hi hat stand that I got in 1990. This stand has needed minimal upkeep, and has seen countless rehearsals and gigs. I use a newer Yamaha 700 hat stand most of the time now,...

Re: What are your drumming-related quirks?

I didn’t think I had any until last year. We opened for another band, so I had to use their drummer’s kit. Nice guy. It was a 4 piece kit, and the 2 toms had mismatched heads. The rack tom had a...

Re: Yamaha Stage Custom Birch

Yeah, the ease of tuning and tone are a night and day improvement. Sounds like a totally different drum, to be honest, so not feeling the need to ditch the gaskets at this time. The drum didn’t...

Re: Yamaha Stage Custom Birch

Thanks for the heads up. I had heard this before, and tried moving the drum all over the rod, with no improvement. Now that the YESS is tightened properly I will experiment with this further to get...

Re: Yamaha Stage Custom Birch

Duh, rookie mistake on my part. I bought this kit used about 8 months ago. I did check and tighten the lug screws but I don’t think I checked the 2 YESS bolts. They were pretty loose, even with...

Re: Yamaha Stage Custom Birch

Not trying to hijack the thread but I’m having a devil of a time tuning my 12” tom. Sounds great until I mount the drum back on the hex rod. The drum then chokes, with some weird overtones. Tuning...
