Re: GRETSCH BROOKLYN mediocre bad quality?

Yeah, that's crap. You shouldn't get that quality out of a CB700 kit, let alone a Gretsch Brooklyn.

Return the whole thing for a new one.

Re: RANT: Disappointed in Sonor

Seriously, are people still complaining about warranties in this thread? Someone posted a link where you buy the inserts for a couple bucks. Just spend the money and buy the silly things and move...

Re: Need a huge kick, is 60 inches enough?

I heard it was going to be 14" deep, so it should thump pretty well.

Re: Catalina Club Jazz vs. Catalina Maple

Quality wise they should be the same. They are made of different woods though. The Catalina Maple is, obviously, maple but the Jazz is mahogany. So they will sound just a bit different from each...

Re: Need a huge kick, is 60 inches enough?

I would imagine there would be some serious leg fatigue using that as a kick. That's a lot of air you have to move.

Re: Musicians Say streaming Music will Leave them Broke.

Journey had a similar issue, but it was right at the beginning of their career. They started as a music-centric band but were not being received very well. They talked with producers and their...

Re: Musicians Say streaming Music will Leave them Broke.

Zappa may have made 60 albums, but none of his records ever made it past gold. That's with world wide sales and in an age where vinyl was the most common medium the music was held on, so no worry...

Re: Musicians Say streaming Music will Leave them Broke.

With no disrespect to Frank Zappa, his music was never going to be played on the radio. It was way too niche market to ever see radio play outside of the Dr. Dimento radio show.

Now, satellite...

Re: Getting some bad vibrations.

Those dented rims sure aren't helping anything. My 8" tom has a dented rim on it. Fortunately I use the kit as an electronic, so its not a big deal, but a dented rim means you can't get the head...

Well, I cant speak for the musicians, but as someone who streams music, or watches youtube, I am very glad there are these sources for me to hear new music from bands I like, or never even knew...

Re: Gretsch Renown - thinking about buying

Thats a great deal. You will really like the kit. A slightly different sound than the starclassics but still a great sound. You know, "That great Gretsch sound."

Re: What drummers have marched?

I. Marched through middle and high school. Got together with a D&B corp and marched with them for a few summers. Worst marching experience was in 7th grade when we had to use slings. I hate slings.

Re: Gretsch Renown - thinking about buying

Ahh, I rechecked the listing and its where the price of that kit should be. I think I got confused when the OP said it was $1300.

But there is a very nicely used Renown on eBay for $700 (Buy it...

Re: Gretsch Renown - thinking about buying

Cascio / Interstate Music is great. You should have no worries buying from them... However, that kit is overpriced considering these are the older models. You can probably find that exact same set...

Re: Trimmed down kits

4 toms is reasonable, but it certainly does not cover all generes of music. Some drummers like to have a full range from very high, to very low in their kit. That can require toms ranging all the...

Re: Real Ludwigs?

Thats a great price for classic maples. If they are the size you want and fit your playing style then go for it.

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Just bought up an Iron Cobra double pedal for half price. Brand New! The new 2013 model, original packaging, unopened box. I don't even like Iron Cobra pedals, but I couldn't pass up the deal.

I usually play something from The Shaggs...








They never ask me to play again. :(

Re: Best Drum set for jazz?

The best jazz drum set I have ever heard was white. If I were playing jazz, I would get a white kit. They are the best.

Re: Microscopic damage! Grrr!

You should be able to buy new inserts and install them in the existing lugs. They arent too expensive. Probably much cheaper than buying a new bass drum. As for the cracked lugs, take count of the...

Re: Does anyone else hate splash cymbals?
