Re: What's the better option: new or used drum kit?

I would question whether the Starclassic you are looking at is the b/b or the all birch model. It is not uncommon for GC to get the models wrong with used gear. If you are on the East Coast, I am in...

Re: definitely a must watch

Thanks for posting the vid. I have nothing but respect for Mike Johnston. He deserves the success he is having. And I have learned quite a bit from his videos to boot.

I enjoyed these grooves. Particularly the linear and Gaddish grooves that had more breakdown of what you were playing. I learned something from all of them will continue to check in with whatever you...

Re: Pearl Studio Session Classic snare drum

I have an older session series snare in the same size. It is basically the shell formula but has a slightly different strainer. It is an amazing snare for the price. The depth you can get out of it...

Re: Any other drummers lift weights? Need advice

I don't think it's abnormal at all and I doubt it has much to do with your drumming. If you think about it, it makes sense - the muscles in your dominant limbs are uses with far more regularity, so...

Re: Pearl aluminium, or Ludwig?

This is really a can't lose decision. There is no denying Ludwig's legacy and sound qualities. To be honest, I have never heard a Pearl snare from the sensitone line that sounded bad. Pearl makes...

Re: Used Renown kit- is this a deal? Think I am going to buy them tomorrow

Even with the cymbals and hardware I think the package is overpriced. A basic 4 piece Renown (which are good drums, don't misread me) can be had for $700 and sometimes less. The snare, cymbals, and...

Re: Is this a decent mid-level set/cymbals?

I think $800 is pushing it in terms of value. The superstars are solid drums but the cymbals, two excepted, are low end. I agree that stage customs are one of the best values around and might free up...

Re: Sonor force 3007

I don't know how much things go for in the UK but here in the states a brand new force 3007 can be had for a just over $600. They are good kits though.

Re: No more die cast hoops for my Ludwig Classic Maple Snare

I do think thy absorb more impact. But the rimshot on the flanges hoop felt much veered than with the die cast. I am also using a relatively small maple stick which probably plays into it. The vater...

Re: No more die cast hoops for my Ludwig Classic Maple Snare

Wood hoops are a very intriguing option but I can never bring myself to shell out for them. Whenever I have money set aside for gear I usually get swayed by cymbals.

Back to topic. I also wonder...

No more die cast hoops for my Ludwig Classic Maple Snare

So a while back I posted that I was having a hard time getting my 5x14 CM snare to really open up. It came with due cast hoops when I bought 1.5 years ago and I finally got around to putting a set of...
