Re: Maple/mahogany and Birch/mahogany sound characteristics

I have 2 Yamaha kits that are 100% birch and birch/mahogany. Both kits are almost identical really with bearing edges and hardware. I can hear a difference, but I bet birch/mahogany vs birch/poplar...

Re: Under Rated or Fairly Unknown Drummers

Sandy McKee of cold blood was a really amazing drummer that doesn't get a lot of recognition anymore, my uncle told me about him and I've ever only heard his name one other time in a steve Jordan...

Re: The ubiquitous LM400

I agree, I love the drum but there's a lot of other snares I think sound better

Hell I'd even say the old rogers metal snares top a Supra

That's just my opinion though

Re: Back to the future!

That's you're prettiest kit yet. You should buy a big warehouse to set up all your kits in and charge admission, like some sort of drum amusement park

Re: Gretsch Broadkaster vs USA Custom

Yup

Personally I'd pick the USA customs because they're a lot more versatile but both kits are well respected

Re: Gretsch Broadkaster vs USA Custom

They sound a lot different. Mainly the biggest difference you'll hear is tone and attack. The USA customs are very warm drums compared to a lot of other kits, but the broadkasters are super warm. And...

Re: Proportional tom sizes?

I have a yamaha rc kit with a 12x10, 15x13 and 18x16 sizes. And just a 22 by 14 kick. Some guys say they like the looks of the kit and others say they don't but I enjoy it

So far I love the kit,...

Re: The ubiquitous LM400

It seems like all of the companies during the 60s were making really high quality budget drums. I bought an old Gretsch bass drum from a "student outfit" (low cost option) that was made in the mid...

Re: Dunnett acrylic kit really worth $4000?

Man that thing is long enough to cut in half and have double bass drums

I'd just turn that thing into a fish tank or something

Re: College auditions, where to start!?

Yea it's a good idea to call ahead of time, because you'll know what to prepare but you'll also get on the professors good side. Usually those auditions are pretty laid back, you just go in shake the...

Re: Dunnett acrylic kit really worth $4000?

Ha I'm more upset with that bass drum

This almost feels like a joke that's such a bad kit especially for the money

Ultra shallow rack tom, shallow floor tom, and EXTRA deep bass... 3 piece...

Re: Added a Ludwig student snare to the collection

Bo I feel like you're always getting new stuff. Do ever sell drums or kits you lose interest in or do you have a holy grail storage unit with like 10 kits in it?

Re: Jazz drummers: How do you work on soloing?

It's real hard to practice alone. With improv solos you usually need a few musicians to play off of and inspire you. It's more mental than anything else really, and the best practice is trial and...

Re: Jazz drummers: How do you work on soloing?

This is 100% accurate

I like to watch as much footage and listen to as many drummers as I can, and when I see something I like I learn it. I scan through all sorts of genres like jazz, latin,...

I've broken a snare side head before. At a gig one day in the middle of a song I looked down and noticed my snare sounded like a tom all of a sudden. Ive broken so much equipment at gigs I really...

Re: Aquarian SuperPad hard to find? Good alternative?

Re: Base Drum volume. HELP Please talk me down off this ledge.

Yea I always hate when a sound guy has control over my kit. I like to have a real punchy bass drum sound that really cuts, so I just EQ and tune in my bass drum mic how I like

It does take a lot...

Re: Base Drum volume. HELP Please talk me down off this ledge.

It would look a lot cooler than traditional electric bass drums. I'm not a fan of most digital bass drum sounds though versus fine tuned acoustic bass drums.

If you want a louder drum, I would set...

Re: Need Advice on Yamaha Beech Custom Absolute Please

3 rack toms and 2 floor toms? If the kit is in good condition then I think that's a fair price. Those drums aren't the best made by Yamaha but they are great drums and he could probably sell them for...

I really want a 20 bass drum, but so far my...

Re: When Made In Japan was a bad thing ;)

Beautiful kit, that wrap and hardware are in great condition. I've always wanted to sit behind one of those old Yamaha kits but I've never seen one

You gotta post a thread of a sound file or video

Both of these are 20" bass drums. You can get a huge deep sound or a tight bop sound depending on how you tune and what heads you use....

Re: PEARL STEEL SENSITONE VS PEARL ALUMINUM SENSITONE

I've owned both and I got rid of the steel. I still have the aluminum but I don't use it very much at all. I played an old brass pearl Jupiter snare a friend had a while back and it beats both imo

Re: What are the stories behind famous drummers kits?

Could you imagine being a drum tech for those guys with huge kits in the 80s/90s. It probably took an 2 hours to set up and another hour just to tune a kit for a rush concert
