Re: Coming back to Drums after 20 years..need advice on kits

I use Sound Off pads a lot.

But the 'pads' I referred to in the quote are the type of electronic multipads I linked to.
Roland, Yamaha, Alesis, and a few other companies make them.

Most of...

with your budget, you should be able to get a less expensive, acoustic set, and a set of multipads -...

Re: 20" bass drum

I wasn't too pleased with my 20x17 Stage Custom Birch bass drum at first.
Too much 'boing', too open and boomy sounding, too many overtones, too much rebound, and not enough deeper lower tone.

Re: 13x6" Ahead COB vs. Ludwig Supralite

You probably don't want to bring that drum because you don't know what the situation will be like, or if something might happen to the drum, right?
So it might be a better idea to go for a less...

Re: Coming back to Drums after 20 years..need advice on kits

To hear an acoustic kit through headphones, you'll need more than mesh heads. You have to use triggers with them, into a module.
I made mesh heads for acoustic drums after doing some research at...

Re: Nickel plating an acrolite?

If you've got it gleaming like fresh thick chrome, anything you use on it will dull it.

Even a metal prep solution to provide somewhat of a grip for a clear coat will dull it.
If you've taken it...

Re: Which STEEL SNARE?

Confusing - it would make sense if the 'Ludwig Metal' was Ludalloy (or whatever it's called).

But the LM300 is steel, and has the LM prefix.

Re: Which STEEL SNARE?

Serious? - or LOL.

I see they also have LB (brass/bronze), LS (maple) and LW (???).

Re: Need help with solos

Tell the rest of the band that when you run out of ideas, they should listen for the switch to playing Wipe Out.

Re: Single pedal adjustment - Help really needed

Sounds like you're looking for advice on how to make your PDP pedal more useable?

I'd say if the place you bought it from has a good return policy try to exchange it for whatever Yamaha pedal...

I was just kidding you.

I've got a Yamaha wood snare too. I posted on here how surprised I was that it had more ring to it than my steel snare.
I like it though. There are lots of ways to...

Re: Which STEEL SNARE?

I'm betting that shortly after you buy a steel snare, you'll hear one you like better on youtube.

Re: Which STEEL SNARE?

Ludwig makes a 15" Supralite that sounds like it might be what you're looking for.
If it's like the other ones I've heard, it'll be a bit ringy, but can be easily tamed down.
Should tune low enough...

Re: Yamaha Drums

Sounds like it'll be a neat set.
I kinda' toyed with the idea of an oak bass drum with maple toms for a while.
Mix and match wood types are kind of appealing - especially if the finish is the same....

From what I've seen of prices in Australia, it seems like you got a really good deal.
Especially considering the cymbals that came with it.

According to Yamaha's drum history site, the Stage...

Re: Buying First Drum Kit

You can find someone who will recommend every kit that's currently being made.
So try out all that you can, and get the one you like best that's in your budget.

Re: Mapex drum set

It's got everything you need to get going.
The cymbals probably will need to be replaced, but the drums should sound OK. Might have to change heads if they're beat though.

Re: Buying First Drum Kit

Make sure to check out the Yamaha Stage Customs before you buy.
They're good drums, fairly inexpensive, readily available, and you can order just about any size add-on you might want.

Re: Yamaha steel snares

I had a different model, steel Yamaha snare for a long time. A 14x5, SD750m.

I'd describe it as a workhorse. It'll get the job done without being outstanding.
The model you're looking at is a...

Re: DRUM Cymbals purchase.. HELP required !!!

I'd say get your pedal - you need that.

The next priority should be a ride - before any of the other things you mentioned.
You've got good hats and crash. With a decent...
