Re: Great car for a drummer

My first car was a 1990 Honda Civic Si (hatchback). I was able to fit my 6 pc kit in the ol Humes and Berg econolines in there and still have a front seat passenger.

Re: Am I a freak for not liking virgin bass drums?

I pimp the bald with a goatee/mustache look.

Re: Am I a freak for not liking virgin bass drums?

I guess I should say semi-high end. I didn't mean to refer to their professional or top shelf stuff. Never looked at that as I don't have that kind of $ to spend.

Re: Am I a freak for not liking virgin bass drums?

It may have aggravated me more because I had a Pearl kit where every drum was hanging. I found it much easier to set up with my toms mounted on the bass, we're talking about no time at all to set...

Am I a freak for not liking virgin bass drums?

I tried my first set recently with a virgin bass and was just irritated by the stand placement and had a really hard time getting the toms where I wanted them. Might also have been I didn't feel...

Re: Let's Talk Snare Drums

Holy old thread regeneration! I saw I had posted in this and clicked on it...2009! Still like my DW collectors and now a Yamaha Oak Custom added to the mix.

Re: Gretsch Renown or Tama Starclassic B+B

For some reason my post didn't post: I can't stand having to deal with tom clamps on stands and positioning them just right over the bass drum. I think people way over-rate the effect a tom mount...

Re: Gretsch Renown or Tama Starclassic B+B

I haven't really "played" a B/B kit, but I've owned two all birch performers. My 06's were truly fantastic. I hit on a b/b kit and thought it sounded pretty awesome, the bubinga adds some bottom...

Re: 2014 STAGE CUSTOM review ☞

Thanks for the review. I've seen them for $649 and you might be able to get them for less shipped. Great deal. My Tama SCP B/B's looked to be packed identical to yours. Not sure why they take...

Re: Affordable decent quality tom mounts for Pearl Optimounted toms

Cool, thanks for the sensible tip. That's what I did just with my 8" hanging tom on my other kits.

Re: Affordable decent quality tom mounts for Pearl Optimounted toms

I'd really prefer that iso style leg mount, but I think to start out with, it will be cheaper to buy the L arms and double clamp stand section. May even need an actual shorter, beefier stand for two...

Re: Affordable decent quality tom mounts for Pearl Optimounted toms

These are the only thing I've found for the floortoms other than using the existing optimount stuff. http://www.drumfactorydirect.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=6_105_77&products_id=2263

Re: Affordable decent quality tom mounts for Pearl Optimounted toms

That was funny! Those won't do me any good as these drums are hanging by optimounts I do believe.

They're right across the street from the GC where I'm picking up the drums. I'll check those out. Thanks.

Re: Need help choosing drum kit/shell pack

I agree with looking some cheap used cymbals until you get familiar with what sounds you actually like and speak for your style as it develops.

Re: Deal of a lifetime or ripped off for being gullable

Nothing wrong with buying a kit and selling it for a profit. These wouldn't be ones to try though. Hopefully you find some you can sell to help fund what you want.

Re: Affordable decent quality tom mounts for Pearl Optimounted toms

No, it's a virgin. I have roadpro stands, so I'll need just a section of a stand with the tom mounts on it I guess. It's looking like you have to get one with the clamp style top then buy the Pearl...

Affordable decent quality tom mounts for Pearl Optimounted toms

I have Tama Roadpro hardware and was wondering what affordable stuff you guys have had great experience with. I'll need mounts for the 10 and 12 as well as the 14 and 16. I'd like to convert to the...

From what I've heard, you seriously can't go wrong with the new 2014 Yamaha Stage Customs. They made several improvements to these drums which were already great from all the reviews I've read. ...

Re: Looking for a shellpack again..... yay.

The shopping finally ended today and thank the Lord. I feel like I lucked up on a set of Pearl Masters Studios. I almost had myself when I saw the sizes: 8/10/12/14/16/22. One extra drum more than...

Re: Looking for a shellpack again..... yay.

Think I may just go the used route and look for some original Genistas, Gen X's, Starclassic perfomers, etc. I'm just really picky and want really clean stuff and it's hard to find folks who...

Re: Looking for a shellpack again..... yay.

I usually like a 10x8/12x9/14x12 or 14x14 and a 22x18. Maybe if I get out this Saturday I'll play some and listen to the difference. There seems to be a shift to more shallow toms every few years.
