Re: The best $1500 can buy...

I don't want to correct you a second time, but mapex pro m's are also made of north american maple, same shells as the orion series...

Re: Looking into a new snare

I also have an export and new heads and snares will make a significant improvement. You could also try to find a used Ludwig Acrolite off of ebay, they aren't very expensive, and possibly require a...

Re: New Kit

I've seen it done before and it didn't sound bad at all, generally I think the 12 and 16 would be a better choice(that's what I use), but it depends on the sound you want from your kit. Also, you...

Re: How would you rate Mapex?

The saturns (while not as expensive) are just as good. actually Will Calhoun formerly of Living Color plays these. Also, not to make things confusing for you but if you dont already know the pro-m's...

Re: new kit soon

that tama looks really nice, and is a steal for $1000. I would get it in a heart beat if I was ready to purchase.

Re: ultra versatile snare idea

Odery did a drum like that, it was a little different(the vents were round) but same idea. I thought that drum sounded amazing and if I had the money would definitly pick one up.

Re: shine custom drums?

they seem kinda expensive. Plus Alex Rodriguez endorses them but he used a vintage gretsch kit to record the album, go figure. I dont want to sway you against them though, because they do look like...

Re: Another Deal -- what do you think???

I would get them, but I dont have 3 others so that is a fact to concider, you could always sell them if you dont like them(dont think that will happen). Also, you may end up liking them better then...

Re: new build tom sizes

the 16x14 is easier to tune and sounds better(to my ears anyway), I would go 12x9 just cuz it would be easier to move around, also they are supposed to sound more focused, just my $.02 though its...

Re: Tama Starclassic VS Sonor SQ2 Series

Also, even though you probably want an individual sound, a lot of guys choose to play yamaha (not that it was one of your choices, just an example), and they could have any set that they wanted for...

Re: What Brand DrumSet is used by most Pro's?

hey, nice to see someone else from chicago. The drumpad really does have a great selection of equipment, although I would say your best bet is a gently used set. There are alot of used dw's that are...

Re: Pearl ECX

you could always buy an opti-mount system(not too expensive) and save money, so I really don't think that is a valid arguement against them.

Re: 70 lb. SNARE!!!!

That seems about right, cuz he showed it throught the snare side head and it looked to be just under an inch in thickness. It had a pretty cool finish on it, almost looked to be raw, or maybe some...

Re: 70 lb. SNARE!!!!

no, unfortunatly its on tv, I know he uses truth drums, but since his drum tech brought it in, I'm not sure about what it is. If you have comcast and on demand its under the mtv 2>rock>saosin:making...

70 lb. SNARE!!!!

I was watching this video about how saosin recorded their new album, and Alex Rodriguez's drum tech brought in a "pig iron snare drum" as he called it, he said it weighed 70lbs. and when he picked it...

Re: pdp drums?

going along with what harry conway said, I think that the sound that you want matters more with the sizes than the syle, it's all personal syle, I've seen punk drummers use anything from a 22x20 to a...

Re: Pearl Export Series

I don't know when they are coming out but the new exports will feature all maple shells as well as some other upgraded features, I would shy away from the poplar ones(current), if you need it now...

Re: FVF Custom Drums

That snare sounds like it is going to be pretty beastly, ha. I like the idea of a laquered aluminum.

Re: Best mass produced kit for about $2500

I'm pretty sure that these three have a pretty good span of finishes none the less. I also like dw, but there are many people who wouldn't even think twice about getting a yamaha over a dw. Also, a...

Re: Ludwig v Gretsch

I think that you should save up, if anything the catalina and accent would be a downgrade. I know the renowns are pretty much the USA's except with gibralter(very good) hardware. I just think you...

Re: Travis Barker

I agree with OCTO on this one. I think that his drumming fits the music. There isn't one blink song that I could see straight notes on a bass drum fitting in. Also, he is well versed in jazz and...
