Re: Any yellowed WMP wrap owners out there?

Drum wrap is usually PVC, but its not a solid piece. I noticed this when refinishing some drums of mine that were green sparkle wrap. There was a back layer of black PVC, then all the sparkle glitter...

Re: Jazz Bass Drum

A great sound is Powerstroke heads on both sides. You can tune them up to resonate for jazz and tune them down to thump for rock. I always go for the universal bass sound myself as I play in a...

Re: Versatility of a 24" Bass Drum

I play a lot of swing band gigs with a Gretsch Catalina Rock set with a 26" bass and it's wonderful. I've also played jazz combo gigs and musical theatre pit shows with it as well. You can always...

Re: Showmanship

The best advice is to let the music dictate what you do. Move with the music, this helps your playing as well and you won't have to worry about what is appropriate or when.

Re: drums that de-tune themselves very quickly

As for the snare, I don't think you are ever going to have much luck with that. If they shell were something other than an Export I would recommend just buying all new hardware for it, but for that...

Re: Ideal 4 piece kit shell sizes?

There is a reason the standard kit for many years was 22x14, 13x9, 16x16. You can play anything. Those sizes are easy to tune, have power and finesse, are easy to set-up, and don't take up much...

Re: Please Visit Your Local Small Music Store for Christmas.

I wish I had local stores. The closest things are Guitar Centers which feature very small and low budget drum sections. (Pearl Exports, B8 Crashes, and Promark Neil Pearts)

Re: Looking to buy a Brass snare need help

I was actually going to buy a Black Beauty snare a while ago, but then found a Slingerland Chrome-over-Brass snare instead. I love it because it has that Buddy Rich zing to it

Re: Triple Flanged v. S-Hoops v. Die Cast

Die Cast hoops are heavier producing a more dampened drum sound, triple flanged always work. My favorite though are the stick-saver kind. There are a couple companies producing them now.

Re: Pearl Export Vs Tama Rockstar

Personally, I would go with the Tama kit. I'd like to believe it's some terrible coincidence, but every Pearl drum I've seen, Masters, Symphonic, marching, Exports, Sessions, etc. or any Pearl...

Re: BONHAM KIT USERS- floor tom question

I love them myself. The easiest way to tell if you would like it. Play a four piece style and if you feel you could benefit from an extra drum then go for it. It's a shame they don't make 20"...

Re: The Key to Speed

The biggest key to speed is to relax. Powering through drum licks will only leave you tired and cause damage to sticks, cymbals, heads etc. Over time, you will improve in stamina if you play a good...

Re: What is our fav. song to play drums to?

"Sing Sing Sing" of course. I've got two versions--the original Benny Goodman with Gene Krupa and one I believe is the Cincinatti Pops with Ed Shaughnessy. The infamous drum solo is fun to close a...

Re: weird vibrating sound from toms...?

I've heard similar issues with drums before. Usually it's a tuning issue--the heads are not in tune with themselves.

Re: Bonham Kits... does any company make them?

I'd go for a Gene Krupa config.: 26 (or 28) x14, 13x9, 16x16, 20x18 too bad they don't produce 20x18 toms anymore...

Re: Bonham Kits... does any company make them?

If I'm not mistaken, Ludwig Legacy are doing something like that. A fun suggestion though is the Gretsch Catalina Rock. I've got one myself in Green Sparkle (that was a limited edition thing about...
