Re: Your Holy Grail

A Nirvana era Tama Granstar/Artstar played by Dave himself. I'd give up testical(s) for it!

Re: Looking for new drums - vintage sound

Normally I am not a big fan of DW. But the DW jazz series, though expensive seems pretty awesome.

Re: Tama SLP Vintage Steel Snare

What kind of material is your snare now? Metal of some kind I would guess?
This is a medium end steel snare, 5x14. It's a good all purpose snare.
It really depends on the sound you are going for....

Re: How to make my kick sound less boomy without using muffling?

I agree with what most people said. Go with a tighter reso head. I typically go with a Remo powerstroke 3 on both sides, med tension-tight on the batter and much tighter than you'd think on the reso...

Re: Considering a Yamaha Oak Custom set - Tell me everything you know...

I have played the oaks before. They, as said already might not be actually louder, but they have a lot of projections and presence. To me Oak and Bubinga drums really jump out at me. It's obvious...

Re: Custom Drum kit advice needed!

Some thoughts based on my years of metal drumming, working in a music shop, touring, and general drum nerdery.
Keep in mind you don't NEED to get a custom kit to get the sound you want.
I agree...

Re: loudest snare?

Any cast snare will be very loud. The bell brass tama is very loud. I have heard a few carbon fiber snares they are a bit louder than your standard snare. The loudest snare I have ever played was an...

Re: Need help on how to play Down with the Sickness

IMO I wouldn't worry about it. Disturbed is horrible.

Re: Virgin bass drum

A lot of kits these days have a braket mounted with 4 small screws that hold the tom mounting hardware, this seems to be a far sight better than 1 or 2 5/8 holes drilled through the shell, but the...

Re: DW Custom Drum Orders Matched to Existing Kit

It's really cool after all these years, and with how successful they have become, they still take the time to match the finishes. I am not a huge fan of DW personally, but they work hard at making...

Re: What 18" crash would be suitable for constant crashing for rock genre

Go bigger! I am a big fan of the Sabian AA Metal-X. Not sure if they still even make them. I have been out of the game for a while. They are thick enough that they can take a beating, but not so...

Re: New Pearl Session Studio Classic

How will replacing the heads change the fact the shells are not 100% maple or birch?

Re: Pearl BRX Masters Kit info needed

I agree, this is no question, a high end kit. And Pearl has great high end kits. Even for the money the mid level kits are great sounding drums. Pearl is far from my brand of choice. But they make...

Re: What size is your main snare? Why?

Well, here is more of my 2 cents. I have played 14x5.5 13x3 14x6 14x5 14x7 14x8 13x6 13x8 14x4 and one night I borrowed a 12x6 (hated it!) Size is important, sorry fellas, but the type of material,...

Re: Pearl BRX Masters Kit info needed

Sounds like a decent deal. The Pearl kit will no doubt be higher quality than the Yamaha kit. Yamaha typically have thinner shells, where as the pearl shells are thicker. The pearl will have diecast...

Re: new snare

I didn't see you wanted wood. Sorry I am post op and a little loopy. Maple would be your basic staple. Everyone has to have at least one maple snare! I would try and find a really high end used one....

Re: What size is your main snare? Why?

Well like many on here I have several snares. I have my Trick 14x7, I like the fullness of big drums, you can still crank them up and get a great pop, but unlike smaller "pop corn" type drums you...

Re: new snare

Aluminum is a good material for jazz, it's pretty dry, but you can also crank it and get a sweet pop out of it. I would say it's a good all around snare. I have a 14x7 trick aluminum with an S hoop....

Re: Anyone play Hard Rock or Metal with a large unported kick?

I play(ed) in metal/hardcore bands and I LOVED the sound of a solid front head. Here is what I would do, I tuned my kick a little higher than most people, the batter head I like tighter than some for...
