Re: New Mapex Saturn Tom Mount

I'm bumping this old thread, because (1) no one ever commented on it, (2) I have the same question, and (3) I'm hoping that in the elapsed time since it was first posted, more members have had the...

Re: Taye Vintage Brass snare

Agreed. I have the 14x6.5 Metalworks Stainless Steel as well, and it's one of my favorites -- second only to my Tama Starphonic brass.

Re: Taye Vintage Brass snare

I love this snare. If you ever get a hankering to sell it (or trade it), let me know!

Re: THE CLASSIFIEDS - For Sale / Wanted

I'm interested in trading for a Taye Metalworks Vintage brass snare. I will trade multiple snares for it. Here's my collection. If you see something you like (or several), let me know.

Re: looking for yamaha stage custom 18" Flr. T.

I saw an 18" SC floor tom go on eBay once, but it was crazy expensive for a single SC drum. Also, there are gillions of different versions of the SC line. So they might not be out there in every...

Re: Does your gear HAVE to be the same brand or do you mix/match?

With cymbals, I see no need to stick to one brand. Not only is it limiting, it's counterproductive. I picked up a 17" AAX Dark crash a few days ago. It blends with my 16" Paiste Sig Fast crash,...

Re: I got scammed. (WARNING: RANT AHEAD)

Just to be clear: I verified the identity of sound_houndz many weeks ago, long before I posted the account of what happened. I should have mentioned that in the original posting I suppose. I...

I think maybe this is the kind of person who plays by the rules when he has to -- basically, when he calculates that he'll make less money overall by scamming people -- but then he steals when he...

Yes, I checked and it really is sound_houndz. Just to make sure, I sent him a message through the bay asking about one of his auction items, asking if he lived in the Phenix City area and if I could...

I got scammed. (WARNING: RANT AHEAD)

I feel like getting this off my chest, because it's been eating at me. I love scouting CL across the country for deals, and I've gotten lots of cool gear this way. But recently, I got burned. Not for...

Re: Pork Pie Snare?

I own it, and yes, it's fantastic. Wonderful maple sound, dry b/c of the vents, deep but with the potential to sound great when cranked. PP snares are a tremendous value. If I could only own two...

Re: After decades, I'm letting go of the 5x14 size

Does it sound like it does in the promo video? If that's not just engineering wizardry, then that snare is AMAZING. I've never had the opportunity to hear it in person.

Re: After decades, I'm letting go of the 5x14 size

I'm with you, Bo. I brought my Acrolite to practice tonight, just to see how it sounded with the church worship team, and while it sounded good, it just couldn't keep up on the really huge parts...

Re: Wood snares

My main snare is a maple 13 x 7 vented Pork Pie Little Squealer. Love it. I just recently started getting back into metal snares. Picked up an Acro and a Taye stainless steel snare this summer. I...

Re: PDP X7 vs. Tama Superstar Hyperdrive 6pc.

That's funny, the 12" tom is the one tom I can never get to sound right on my kit. I don't know what it is. I put an EC2 on it (like I have on all the other toms) and it sounds dead; I put a G2 on...

Re: PDP X7 vs. Tama Superstar Hyperdrive 6pc.

I like my X7's a lot, but the hardware is not overly impressive. The tom mounts seem to have a problem bending out of round. I've never played the Superstar, but in my experience Tama hardware is...

Re: pdp ace snare vs. pork pie big black

Something's screwy on that GC listing. It says the list price is $160, but the list on a BOB snare is $285 I believe (and the MSRP like $500). I wonder if it's mislabeled in some way.

Re: pdp ace snare vs. pork pie big black

It's probably true that both use the same WorldMax shells. That being said, if you can't do a side-by-side comparison for some reason to let your ears decide, I would go with Pork Pie. I own two PP...

Re: New Pork Pie kit and finish.

Bill,

I love the way you build drums like they're works of art.

And as long as I have your ear, let me say (off topic) that your vented LS, BOB, and Patina snares are the best value in snares...

Re: I Know Nothing About Drums and Gear...Help!!

Oh yea -- and do yourself a favor and pick up a used Ludwig Acrolite for your first snare. You can find them for $50 - $100, they sound great, super versatile, and even when you upgrade and start...

Re: I Know Nothing About Drums and Gear...Help!!

I mostly agree with what jmck said, but I think you can get a decent new pedal for about $80 (the IC Jr), and you can get pro level cymbals used in the $100 - $150 range on CL and eBay. I've never...

Re: yamaha stage custom opinion?

Keep looking. There are millions of 'em out there. Be patient and you'll pick one up for a steal. I bought one a couple years ago for $250 for a 4-piece. Included a Pearl Eliminator double pedal...

Re: First Post: I'm terrible at drums....

+1. Tama makes the best pedals, hands down. The IC Jr. is an amazingly fast and smooth pedal for the money. Sometimes, I almost feel like I can go faster on it than I can on my Speed Cobra! But...

Re: yamaha stage custom opinion?

The stretch lugs indicate the the older birch/mahogany/falkata model, I believe. There are LOTS of different versions of the SC. If you're interested in knowing, Yamaha has a website that can help...
