Re: Upgrade From Yamaha DP... 60's Ludwig?

The short response:

1. Vintage 3plys will sound very much different, or should I say sound very much better. These drums will be warm, resonant, and project very well (fill the room with sound).

Re: Keep an antique set safe for the travels

I gig my '64 Ludwig. I'm just careful and pack, load, and unload it myself.

Re: Who uses Moongel?

I use them on the batter heads and leave them on. I do however cut them down to get the dampening I like, usually just reducing the initial "ping" sound. I''ve used as little as a quarter inch square.

Re: Kit Upgrade, Looking for Advice

There are nice quality used kits on Craigslist Columbus/Dayton/Cincy all the time, at great prices. You just need to be vigilant.

Re: Singing and playing?

Re: Using Left Foot Hi-Hat, Does It Help Improve Time?

Re: Cover Band Drummists - How accurate are you?

I absolutely concur here. I play in a primarily Funk cover band with no horns or keyboards, and we play a few of the songs mentioned by Bermuda in his posts.

While I take creative license on many...

Re: My First Ludwig Acrolite

You are correct on the 1993 intro. I mistakenly was dating the badge as it was started in the mid/late 80s on the Rocker series. There seem to be no credible records on the black/white badge serial...

Re: My First Ludwig Acrolite

Black and white badged drums are difficult to date precisely. Your snare is most likely is from the late 80's.

Re: Does anyone else hate splash cymbals?

I LOVE my A Custom 12" splash and beat the hell out of it regularly. It fits in perfectly as more of an accent crash in the Funk based music my band plays. I tried a 10" A Zildjian and could never...

Re: Yamaha Stage Custom Advantage for recording?

That drum kit is fine for recording. I happen to own one and they are considered by most as a mid-range kit. For recording it's more about the heads, tuning, microphones and their placement.

Re: PDP Concept vs Redesigned Yamaha Stage Custom

I have a Concept Maple and a 98 Stage Custom. Based upon my experience you really can't go wrong with either. I do love the Yamaha hardware over the PDP.
