Re: Floor tom tuning

I always had trouble with my 18" ft in my old kit until I put a thicker, double ply head on it. For whatever reason it didn't like the thinner heads. I basically just treated it like a bass drum...

Re: Removing sharpie from Ludwig wrapped drum?

The pen trick works with sharpie as well, as the solvent in the sharpie ink will dissolve the dried ink and then can be quickly wiped off with damp cloth. If the surface is smooth enough, a damp...

Re: Dampening!!!!!!

"Slightly better, which is what you want...You can even shove your aunti's underwear in there." The world famous British elegance :P

I like the idea of only wanting something slightly better too....

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

I've been noticing a slight metallic ringing sound from the kick mic in my recordings. It goes away if I put some soft blanket or loose pillow in it, but I've started to wonder if it's not the tom...

Re: Tom angles!!!!

I picture some sort of creature with four elbows per arm playing that thing.

Re: Tom angles!!!!

The presence of a Green Day book with the kit makes me wonder if that has anything to do with it.

What I think would be great is to photoshop in what a creature that played that kit might...

Re: Why the hate? (Lars Ulrich)

This pretty much. He just stopped caring about music it seemed, at least his instrument. Metallica was a huge musical influence but they lost me with the Black album and I haven't bothered buying...

Re: Sonor Prolite pricing?

Yeah that's crazy. It'd be like buying a brand new Porsche to make a kit car Ferrari. Just pointless and silly. Don't care how good the crafts person is.

Re: Sonor Prolite pricing?

I still have it. I'm currently trying different heads to see if I can make it stand out enough from the rest of the shells. I have ordered the 14x11 and will get it in another two to four months.

Re: Show us your Mapex kits!

That is one pretty kit. Normally I wouldn't go for a color like that, but it works with that kit. Very nice.

Re: New Score off eBay

Congratulations on the purchase. I can't say I've ever played a set of those or been in a room of them being played. I've probably heard recordings of them and not known it...so I can't speak for...

Re: That Erskine kit at NAMM

Yeah, it seems because it's high end people think you can get away with it, like a neon yellow Lamborghini. I tend to go the way of treating it like furniture (my current set has the Nussbaum...

Re: Drum Building Zenith? Where to now?

I'm a big believer in the diminishing returns thing, but to make a comparison to cars, the best car in the world 50 years ago would get smoked by a mid to upper mid level car now, and at much less...

Re: New Tama StarClassic Bubinga setup

Congratulations! I've always thought Tama drums, especially their higher end lines, were beautiful. Your set is no exception. Anyway you could provide a better picture of the finish?

Re: That Tama Rockstar snare for 50 bucks

My old Tama Rockstar Custom kit came with a matching snare, which I believe was 5.5" deep. It was probably my favorite snare at the time. It was surprisingly good! Granted, I got it at the tail...

How many kits does this make for you now, Dre? Didn't you just win one in a contest about 6 months ago?

Re: Sonor Prolite pricing?

I ended up getting multiple quotes, and all but one were the same. The one that was different used to be the same when I requested one from the same store 8 months ago, but they increased it by 15%...

Re: Sonor Prolite pricing?

So KHS is basically buying the distribution arm of Sonor in North America, not Sonor itself, right?

The floor tom certainly is ubiquitous from what I could find, but Lone Star Percussion is another place to seek a quote from! I got another quote today at the original $674...so either they haven't...

Re: Sonor Prolite pricing?

FYI...the quote I provided was from 6 months ago. Just got an updated quote from the same dealer and it's increased 15% in 6 months! Add $100 to make it $778 now. My goodness! I'm hoping the...
