Re: maple/oak hyrid snare

I really dig the Red Oyster finish they offer, and it would look good with my red sparkle kit, but that drum would cost a bit more than the black one linked above.

I'm leaning toward the...

Re: maple/oak hyrid snare

I've been curious about the Keystone snares for a while, but I've yet to see one in person. And for some reason there aren't a lot of demos on Youtube. I usually play with only the bass drum mic'ed,...

I'm interested in a maple/oak hybrid snare and am looking at a 14x8 from Pork Pie (http://www.musiciansfriend.com/drums-percussion/pork-pie-maple-oak-snare-drum) and Ludwig...

Re: Went to Memphis Drum Shop (again)...

I always liked George's videos as well. Is he still touring with the Chris Robinson Brotherhood?
I've been to Memphis twice in the last year, but I still haven't managed to find time to get to MDS....

Re: What's your latest purchase?

I recently picked up an LP Stealth jam block (http://www.lpmusic.com/products/blocks/stealth-jam-block-pack-wmount/) and I'm thrilled with it. It's sensitive and projects well; my band and sound guy...

Re: New Gretsch Renown Birch

Have the Renown birch or walnut hit dealers yet? I love my maples and would like to check out how the others compare soundwise.

Re: Alternative to Gretsch Renown Kit

The Gretsch USA Customs and Renowns sound too similar to be considered alternatives soundwise, unless of course the sizes are very different. The Brooklyns have a more open sound, but I think a lot...

Re: Gretsch Renown - thinking about buying

Have your drums arrived yet? It's hard to tell exactly which finish that is; transparent ebony perhaps? Also, did you show the guy at GC the Cascio ebay listing, because I can't find the...

Re: Pearl Free Floater (advice)

It could be my imagination, but I think the aluminum base plays a large role in the sound of these drums, probably even more than getting the lugs off the shell. I say that because in theory the...

Re: GRETSCH BROOKLYN mediocre bad quality?

This is not representative of any Gretsch drum I've seen. I would have your store order a replacement kit and inspect it before you take delivery.

Re: Gretsch Renown Maple 16" Floor

The 14x16 is available in shell packs, but despite being listed as an add-on (RN1-1416F at http://www.gretschdrums.com/?fa=drums&sid=747#specs), I've had several Gretsch dealers tell me it's not...

Re: Best Maple Drumkit around $1000

Check out a Gretsch Renown. I think the 30 degree bearing edges give it a fatter sound than, say, a Pearl Masters (which I think projects/cuts a little better) or others with the sharper 45 degree...

Not everyone likes the sound or look of DW drums, but they're obviously doing something right. As someone else said, hype/marketing only gets you so far. I don't know anything about John Good...

Re: Middle aged bands. How should they dress?

The other day, a guitarist friend was giving another a hard time about wearing white sneakers at a bar gig. He said, "When you're playing a blues gig, ask yourself: 'Would Freddie King wear this?'"

Re: Do you call it a kick drum or bass drum?

Youtube viewers will hate on you no matter what you do, so don't worry about it.

I've always said "bass" drum, but I've heard a lot of folks say "kick" so I think it's pretty widely accepted....

Re: Pro level kit

I'm not sure how your drum comes out of tune with lug locks, but I can see how that would be frustrating. Maybe it's worth trying some cast hoops. Also, as long as you're changing heads, maybe go a...

Re: Refinishing Color Yamaha Recording Custom Drum?

I've never seen yellow RCs, but changing a rare color is only an issue if you're worried about resale value (and rare doesn't always mean desirable). If you plan on keeping and playing them, who...

Re: Did Ludwig do solid black drum hoops on WMP newer classic maples

I recently looked into ordering a Ludwig kit, and I think you have the choice of inlay or plain hoop.
And of course, logos are easily changed, and maybe the original hoops were damaged and replaced...
