Re: Few questions about rack and floor toms.....

Its quicker for me to set up floor toms with legs, this is my second kit to have some. My other kits both had a hanging 14" tom. I feel like the legs make them resonate more, as long as they have air...

Re: On the look out for a new kit

Tama superstar or superstar custom, or Pearl vision are great kits. You might be able to find a more high end kit looking on ebay or craigslist.

Re: best kit for the money?

I got a wicked deal on my kit, so I would vote SC performer too. In my opinion they're just as good as Pearl masters and MCX. SC maple and bubinga would be equivalent of reference series.
I think...

Re: Walking bass drum.

Thanks guys. The problem was due to being on a laminated floor I guess. Tieing the stuff up is an interesting idea, if I end up moving myself I might reconsider how I play haha. The only idea I was...

Walking bass drum.

I found that when I started using a double pedal I can't get the drum to stop moving forward. Even with the spikes out on both the spurs and pedal. I have it clamped to the hoop properly but it...

Re: Where to buy a kit, BC, Canada

I'm willing to help man. You will find there's a limited selection of high end stuff mainly because they want to bring that stuff in to sell.

Pacific Drum Centre is good near Granville island, W....

Re: snare : whats between metal and wood?

Titanium is the best choice.
It has a killer tone, sort of like wood but still strong like metal. It's the "driest" sounding metal shell I've heard.
Tama makes a new warlord Titan snare. There's...

Re: Pearl Reference, Tama StarClassic Bubinga, or DW Collector Maple?

Pearl Masterworks kits are awesome.

As for how the wood combinations are... I own the birch/bubinga starclassics and they sound wicked. I wouldn't say they sound better than my all maple kit,...

Re: Your Drums: How did you buy them?

In response to the question about affording my kit.. I used some of my money I got from being in a car accident. I bought used but off craigslist, I don't feel comfortable with ebay either. Not after...

Re: I need some advice on upgrading my drums from Ludwigs to Tamas...?

Well basically, if you want a thicker drum shell to get a loud kit... I feel the superstar is a very loud set in that sense. If you want the thicker shells for durability.. Tama stuff is renown for...

Can't go wrong with either types of shells.

Re: I need some advice on upgrading my drums from Ludwigs to Tamas...?

I would get a Superstar accel kit for around $500, then you could add on to that. In my opinion even the Imperialstar is a better kit than Ludwig accents.

Re: Pearl Reference, Tama StarClassic Bubinga, or DW Collector Maple?

I would say go with the DW collector's.. but I love Tama kits and high end Pearl. Reference has that crazy blue that would look killer with black. For that kind of money there's a world of options,...

Re: Buyers reomorse.....how bad did I screw up?

If its at all possible, pick up a kit of MCX pearl. I realize its quite a bit more but it would definitely outlast a cheaper kit, then you'd have to buy a replacement kit or something.

Re: Used drum advise for a new drummer.

SMX is a lot better quality than common exports. The "M" refers to it being maple, which is deemed better than poplar. If it was SBX it would be birch.
That first sessions kit was really good.. the...

Re: Used drum advise for a new drummer.

Very true. Before I chose my Starclassic performer with 20% off, I made the decision of either Tama, Yamaha oak or maple, or Pearl Masters. Almost any brand new drum kit is going to look amazing and...

Re: christmas presents

Especially chinas, cymbals tend to break quick. That being said to buy a "beginner pack" of cymbals then in a couple of years upgrade to pro cymbals is paying twice.
I think Zildjian has a 1 year...

Re: Used drum advise for a new drummer.

A couple of ideas I found in your craigslist. Keep in mind since these kits are old, you'd probably have to check extra carefully for any deterioration.


Gross colour Tama Granstar, if you don't...

Re: Used drum advise for a new drummer.

The batter heads (front, side you hit) are the necessary ones to change. Your standard sizes 5 piece would cost in the region of $100 canadian for new heads.
Buying a used kit is a great idea, and...

Re: Shoes/Socks/Bare feet?

Unless I have to play some super fast 16th notes, I try to play with flexible shoes on. The beater on my left pedal swings far back and sometimes hits my foot. It would be worse if it was bare feet,...

Re: New Tama and PDP sets

Tama starworks was launched at this year's winter NAMM I believe. It's north america only and I'm not sure what to expect of it in terms of sound.
