Re: Good Snares for Metal?

Agreed with both of you. I actually quite like my Pacific SX Natural (with maple hoops) for basic hard rock work (think classic hard rock), and I didn't think I would at all.

Unfortunately, while...

Re: Good Snares for Metal?

If you can find one in your area, you could get a Pacific "Black Out" Maple 5" x 14" snare for just a little under 100. I believe the 6" x 14" is close to the same price, as well, if you want a...

Re: Good Snares for Metal?

See if you can find a used Ludwig Acrolite. Dry and articulate. Tune it right, and it could be the perfect snare for anything.

I would definitely go used if you're on such a tight budget. You'll...

Re: Versatile Snares

You may be able to find an older Tama Artwood, or one of the newer GC-exclusive Artwoods or Starclassic B/Bs that would fit the bill. I know Tama's knocked out some limited/exclusive thicker birch...

Re: Is Tama a Bad Company?

Simon Philips talks about his Mirage kit, and sort-of briefly touches on the C&C/Tama arrangement at the beginning of this video:

Re: The side snare

I use a 6" x 12" Pork Pie maple drum as a side snare, tuned high and tight for breakbeat-type rhythms.

Also, the 6" depth makes it perform quite well as a main snare when tuned in the mid-to-low...

Re: Tama Starclassics!

I would say that it's a good deal. If it came with a snare and more up-to-date hardware, I'd say it's a steal. Regardless, try to talk them down to a round $800.

If you buy this kit, DEMAND that...

Re: Mid/high level kits.

Having owned a Tama Starclassic Performer Birch (in addition to the Starclassic Bubinga and Maple kits I currently own), I agree with Tommy_D. They were fantastic kits, with the same build quality as...

Re: Tama Starclassics!

If that kit is indeed from 1999, it is *not* an all-Birch shell. The all-birch shell for Starclassic Performers was rolled out in 2000, however, it is *very* hard to visually tell the difference. The...

Re: For anyone that may have an unfulfilled order with Midwest Percussion.

I never had any problems with Midwest until maybe late 2010 or so.

After that time, they would very often charge my credit card for things that were long-backordered and not give me any updates....

Re: Tama Star = $$$$

I have not seen or heard a Craviotto kit that I didn't think was well worth the price tag. Immaculate drums.

I know Yamaha was attempting to enter that boutique market with the PHX line, but...

Re: A little S-Hoop History

I've no idea why the outward-flanged triple-flanged hoops became more popular, when the Stick Savers really are much better and definitely don't chew up your sticks nearly as much. Maybe it's a cost...

Re: Tama Star = $$$$

Apparently, there's a little kerfuffle going on over at the Tama Forum regarding the Star drums. A prominent Five-Star shop sent back around 5 (or more) kits to Tama for some reason that's been...

Re: My Ludwig Signet105 review!

I'm taking it that the 16" didn't exactly take quite as well to a clear EC2 SST? That's interesting, as I find that drums 13" and larger seem to love EC2s more than anything smaller than that.

Re: Where would you put the Tama G-Bubinga SLP?

The G- prefix refers to a thicker version of the Starclassic shell. As far as I know, the S.L.P. G-Bubinga is the first time they did that shell thickness with Bubinga on any of their drums....

Re: eBay Score! Now what do I do?

I would not only change the heads and stash the originals, I'd change the snare wires and batter-side hoop, and stash them along with the heads. That may help retain the value EVEN MORE if you choose...

Re: Tune Bot / Idrum Tech lawsuit?

The lawsuit is pretty lame. The creator of iDrumTech has tried on multiple occasions to work out a deal with Tune Bot, but they've rebuffed him and decided to go this route instead.

It's pretty...

Re: Ludwig 2014

A "Stacking" kit? A "Supraphonic" shell kit? I'd go for either/both!
