Re: New Sonor choice!!!!

Sorry to get off topic, but IMO that gold oyster finish doesn't look too bad if you look at it from a short distance away. It does look god awful up close though.

Back on topic, I really think...

Re: lp micro snare

1. Thats really not that expensive.
2. Not sure as I have never tried one, but I would guess that a crash would almost overpower it
3. Thats really for you to decide.

Re: sorry but i have to, BIG DRUM KITS

I'll stick with a nice 4, or occasionally 5 piece set. I do prefer very big cymbals though :)

Re: JoJo Mayer's SQ2 Kit

I've been admiring Jojo's sound for so long now... He's using an Artist Scandinavian Birch snare, which is really as maple shell with a birch finish.

That's about all I'm good for haha.

The Countdown to DCI

Who all went? I wanted to go, but I couldn't get any of my friends to go, so I stayed at home.

Re: Newbie says Hello from Kathmandu, Nepal! Need Ludwig advice.

From what I've heard they're pretty solid drums. I'm not a big fan of the sizes, but hey, if you like'em I say go for it.

Re: How to get over a creative rut?

New equipment always helps me. Maybe get some cymbals that are different from what you usually play, like some bigger than usual hi hats. I've heard some 18" hats that sound pretty good (wink, wink).

Re: Pearl VMX vs. Pearl Masters MCX

I'm pretty sure that the only difference is the hardware. You could get a VMX and gradually upgrade it, which may save you a little money.
