Re: Crappy Yamaha snare strainer

Thanks. I was afraid of that. I'd hoped that maybe Yamaha had a heavier duty piece that would bolt on.

Crappy Yamaha snare strainer

I own a Yamaha Musashi 13" snare and it's by far my favorite. The only thing that I don't like is the stock strainer which seems really flimsy compared to the rest of the components. I love the sound...

Help! Taye bass drum hoop question

Hey guys,

I FINALLY pulled the trigger on a new gigging kit, a Taye Studio Maple. It arrived assembled and the kick drum hoops don't look right to me. I've always had old-school hoops with the...

Has anyone experienced Ludwig Classic Birch?

I've got my eye on a used Ludwig USA Classic Birch kit which are no longer made and I was wondering if anybody out there owns one or has owned one and what the general impressions are. I will not be...

Aluminum snare question.

Can anyone fill me in on the volume and tonal qualities of aluminum as a snare shell? I've got woodies, steel, and brass but never thought about aluminum until I saw a Pearl at a local store. Didn't...

Re: Which13 inch snare would you also use as a main snare?

BTW, has anyone out there used a 14" aluminum snare? If so, what are the tonal qualities compare to say, brass or steel?

Re: Which13 inch snare would you also use as a main snare?

Big,

I've seen the Gretsch for as high as 189. and it's probably worth that. The strainer is a bit lightweight but I'm not a monster so it doesn't bother me. I got the silver sparkle which...

Re: Which13 inch snare would you also use as a main snare?

Just did a gig with my new Gretsch Catalina 13x7. It's mahogany with die cast hoops. I put a Genera Dry batter and a hazy 300 reso on it and it kicks. I took along my Pearl brass 14 just in case the...

Pearl VSX Black Sparkle question

I'm buying a second kit for gigging. I've seen this covering and it knocked me out but I'm concerned about it showing dust, fingerprints, & scratches. I have a solid black kit now that looks great...

Re: Drilled or virgin bass drum

The simple answer is that for looks and purity of sound, stick with virgin. For a precise, quick setup in a gig situation, mount up.

Parts availability? Taye vs. Mapex vs. Sonor.

I've been trying to narrow down my choices for a new or used mid-line gigging kit and I was wondering if anyone out there has experience, good or bad with obtaining replacement parts for Taye Studio,...

Re: Good drumming to the audience

For the non-musician audience, a drummer's showmanship is definitely the key. Years ago I set my kit set up so it required a lot of unnecessary, dramatic jumping, flailing, and swivelling, like Shawn...

Re: Under-cooked chops?

Call me uptight, but if I'm doing a gig I'll add something new only if it fits the song, I can nail it smoothly, and it won't distract the other band members.
At practice however, I'll try...

Re: Why do you play drums?

Because if I don't I'll die. I will become so disagreeable and cranky that my wife will kill me in my sleep.

Re: Drum idiosyncrasies

This started out as a practical idea but is now part of my wacko drummer mystique:

Years ago I started marking my snare head whenever I changed it to indicate where the sweet spots were for...

Re: Getting "yelled" at onstage

Except for good-natured teasing, calling someone out onstage for blowing a note, chord, or a lyric is unprofessional. The situation creates tension even if it's just an "evil eye", and tension...

Re: Proper way to sit, throne height ?

I'm old and grumpy and have a tendency to slouch during slow songs or ones that bore me, especially during four hour gigs. I use a Tama saddle with backrest more to remind me to sit up straight than...

Re: Pearl Vision VSX vs. Tama Superstar SX

Yeah,
My old Pearls were shell mounted and I was wondering how the new system would stay in tune with the rims being constantly stressed. I always liked Pearl's tube type mounts with the memory...

Re: Most portable drumset

Thanks for all the input. I think I'm going to keep the PDP and patch it up as my small space kit. It's also good for my practice area. I'm going to be doing some outdoor things and larger venues now...

Re: Most portable drumset

You da man!

My issue is that if I have to change out hardware on a new kit I might as well do it on my PDP. The thing has been set up and taken down so many times that I have to really crank the...

Re: Most portable drumset

Thanks Bob,

I've heard that GMS is a decent company, but I'm concerned that, as good as it looks on paper, the low end SL series will eventually need a replacement lug or something and I'll have...

Pearl Vision VSX vs. Tama Superstar SX

Hi,
I'm in the market for a reasonably priced, good sounding, wrapped, gigging kit with hardware that will hold up. I've narrowed it to this 2 and would appreciate any feedback. Thanks.

Hey,
Just weighing in on one of my favorite subjects. I bought a PDP Chameleon kit 7 years ago for small stages etc. It's a cheap short stack on which I've upgraded heads and stands, pedals etc....
