Re: Which wood type to go with

Bingo! Spend your money on cymbals. Cheap cymbals sound well....cheap. A starter drum kit with good heads and tuning can sound fantastic with a good set of pies. Sadly, most budget sets are...

Re: Vintage Drum Revelation

I think a better cymbal example would be Paiste. Every 2002/3000/Signature will pretty much sound identical. If you hear one you like, you can order one on eBay and rest assured it will sound like...

True, not saying these entry level Mapex are wonderful; rather, I am just drawing a comparison of pro level vintage to entry level...

Vintage Drum Revelation

Earlier this year, I sold my vintage 3-ply Ludwig kit. It was a large kit that just took up too much space. While owning it, I was in love with it. The warm sounds, reinforcement rings, rounded...

Re: what drum should i buy for adult

I am bored, otherwise I wouldn't respond to a trolling thread.....

Re: Vintage Drums- "Fog of Time" Realization

Trust me, I will never part with these drums. My only comment is that if I am honest with myself, I am attached to them more for sentimental reasons than the sound. They sound great, I just am...

Re: Vintage Drums- "Fog of Time" Realization

Tamadrm is correct, Ludwig never offered a dual headed drum below 13". Maybe a 12" but I think all toms were 13" and 14" prior to 1975. In 75 and 76 they offered the 6-12 in concert. However, they...

Re: Vintage Drums- "Fog of Time" Realization

Good points. I still enjoy the sound of the Ludwig; and, your right, there is no other drums that have the 3ply thin shell sound. The reinforcement rings and crappy bearing edges give them a sound...

Re: Simple songs that are not so simple

Rosanna - Toto

Vintage Drums- "Fog of Time" Realization

Let me preface my comment with that I am a product of the 70's and 80's era (I was born in 1970). I grew up loving that Ludwig sound. Big kits with lots of cymbals was the rage back then. Last year,...

30-day Forum Fast - Practice Instead

I am starting a 30 day fast tomorrow from all online forums. I know this sounds dumb, but I spend way too much time browsing and posting in forums and not enough time practicing. I have made a...

Re: Pearl and Ludwig: Outrageous Prices?

Are you opposed to buying used? This is a buyer's market and there is a lot of pro level gear available these days at stellar prices. "New" in my book means new to me.

Re: Gretsch renown '57 or Tama superstar Hyper Drive or something else

Another vote for the renown. I like the light blue one. That blue is such an iconic color from the 50's, especially the 57 Chevy.

Re: A Little Change Makes All the Difference

Yeah, the 6" is fine for playing at home, but it would be useless in a live setting unless it was miced. Even after adding the lower head to it, it just has a quick attack and then little to no...

Re: Rock Band transition.

Your alesis module uses midi. All ekits use midi. You are just using midi over USB when it goes to your computer. Midi is the signal, USB is the transport and interface. As far as only designed...

Re: Storing Drums in a garage?

I have mine setup in my garage in South Texas. During the summer, I just leave a gap at the bottom on the garage door.

A Little Change Makes All the Difference

Changed my kit - WOW what a difference. Amazing how moving a few toms around can change the entire ergonomics of your kit. I have a large vintage Ludwig kit that although it was a blast to play, I...

Re: Ludwig Classic 8' & 10" toms...

If you think the 8" Ludwig has no guts, then you would hate to hear the 6". It is just a pop and then it is over. I have 6"-18" on my 3ply vintage kit. I dont use the 6" at all hardly, but I do...
