Re: Thoughts for adding spurs to a 1947 26" Gretsch Bass drum?

Then your options are hoop spurs, sitting it on the ground, or Black Magik. Good luck, and stop asking the question if you already know what you're going to do; we don't care about you bragging about...

Re: Set up contemplation / remote HH in the 1-2 o'clock position / review

VERY interesting kit, thanks for the pics. What brand is that? Have you tried setting the hats at 12:00? I like mine right in the center personally.

Re: Thoughts for adding spurs to a 1947 26" Gretsch Bass drum?

Honestly, I think if you could find some vintage Gretsch (or similar) spurs from around the same era, drilling your drum may not devalue it much, if at all. Also, I agree that you should look into...

Re: Bass Drum Beaters. Tell me your favorite!

You like the Trick Dom on there? I have been considering getting some Trick Doms for my DW 9002 pedals because I think I want them to feel a little lighter and more modern, without sacrificing power,...

Re: Die Cast hoop on bottom of snare and snare wires/straps?

Have you considered using a 30 strand instead of a 20? That will give you a more snary response. If you like the feel and tuning of your die cast but want more reso, have you tried using single ply...

Re: How to "count" this 12/8 bar...

I agree. I wouldn't bother counting that measure either; pretty basic lick. I see counting as necessary only in very complex/offbeat measures.

Re: Thomas Lang

Let me guess: you think Terry Bozzio randomly banging around on his laughably over-sized kit is genius?

Re: first drum set for beginner

I take my comment back; I didn't look at the Pearl Export. You should be taken to jail for stealing that kit. lol definitely made the right decision.

Re: first drum set for beginner

Go with option 1, imo. Pacific is DWs lower end line. And $350 isn't bad at all. If you wanted to extend your budget to $500 you could easily even get a cymbal or two more for it.

Pacific are good...

Re: lifting left hand when right hand is playing hihat

This would be my suggestion as well. I personally despise having my hands crossed when playing hat and snare because I too find it awkward, making me unable to really get the power I want on the...

Re: The better the sound of the drum the more you enjoy playing?

+1, and +1 on the post after. If a kit sounds flawless I will play it all day long if allowed, but if it sounds like crap I may dick around on it for a few minutes, and then be done - I'd rather...

Re: 24x24 bass drum

Hey, man, I was wondering the same thing. I thought perhaps a 24" kick would offer a more powerful sound, but what I found was they actually sounded a little more sloppy. 22" is a nice size.

Re: Beginner Drum - $500 budget

Dude, get these ones. So many drums for $300. That leaves you $200 for a pedal and a cymbal or two!

Yes, the color is hideous, but that is easy to fix. Just sand off old color, or if it isn't...

Re: DW Black Hardware

That's what I figured. I bought a SuperSolid a few months back and I'm in love with it. DW makes rock solid things. I assumed it would probably not be good though if dropped... Not that I ever plan...

DW Black Hardware

Does anyone have any black DW hardware on their drums? I know it's powder coated, but how strong is it? Does it chip off at all?

Re: Hardware of drum of the guitarcenter

If it is only coming with the tambour, that means they took off the hardware, but you can buy your own hardware if you want. Usually about $20-30 USD per tambour rim. If GuitarCenter says it is...

Re: Hardware of drum of the guitarcenter

Stock, I'm sure it is Ludwig triple-flanged hoops, but any brand of triple-flanged hoops will work. You can also put any brand of die cast steel hoops on if you want more warmth and less resonance.
