Re: Mapex Saturn vs Ddrum Dios Walnut

I have a Saturn and I couldn't recommend it more. I've played a lot of kits in stores and in venues, I've never played a kit that has made me want to swap/upgrade (I use the word 'upgrade' lightly...

Re: Funky snare - Supralite vs Acrolite

Thanks everyone.

I think if I was going to go brass I would go for that Carl Palmer snare over the World Max (it just looks so good) but either way I feel that since I already have a brass snare I...

Re: Funky snare - Supralite vs Acrolite

Thanks for all the replies.

The reason why I'm not really using the BB is because most of the time it's out and about at a gig or packed up in a case. Logistically that makes it difficult and...

Funky snare - Supralite vs Acrolite

Hi everyone,

Back again after a prolonged period of lurking. I'm looking at getting a new snare for some of the more funky music I'm playing. I'm after the Garibaldi type snare sound, so really...

Re: Mapex - help needed!

The tom mount is a Pro-M mount. Specifically the memory locks are from the Pro-M tom mount. So if those memory locks on that tom mount are the same that came with the kit, assuming that the tom mount...

Re: Bass drum

I think the M series one isn't isolated like the Pro-M. I've done the same thing to my M-Birch, and just left the bass drum mounting block in. I doubt it'd make any discernible difference to sound,...

Re: help....pearlv vision(vmx)or mapex saturn

Hey, I don't know about you, but I'm not too fond about the ISS. Heard many horror stories about them warping rims, I know for a fact they can be somewhat unstable especially on larger mounted toms...

Re: Mapex or Tama

Yes. Mapex M-Birch. I have one, have had it for two years now, taken it out places, not a single complaint. Fat, punchy tone, great hardware. As what mind_drummer said, you should be able to get one...

Re: Need ideas for music analysis

Yeah it's a very broad range of topics you're looking at. Maybe pick a specific genre that you're interested in, just to narrow it down? Or maybe two and compare and contrast...teachers love compare...

Re: What would you change about a drum brand?

To those talking about the EMAD vs the Powersonic, I still think the EMAD beats the powersonic by a mile. There were two bass drums set up in my local drum store, one Pearl Export, and one very old...

Re: Yamaha Drums

Thanks for the reply 2bsticks. I'm not too concerned about sound atm as I'm sure both have a great sound and I'll be hearing everything in person before I make the decision. I'm just thinking,...

Re: Yamaha Drums

Re: Another kit

I'd throw my vote in for the Yamaha. Good name, good drums, good quality, some of (IMO) the best sparkle finishes available today...
Thing is, I've tried this myself, and I can't find a SINGLE thing...

Re: Tama Superstar or Mapex M Birch??

^^What he said.
Seriously both are great kits. I myself own the Mapex and I can assure you it satisfies in EVERY way. If you have a chance to try them out, then make sure you do before you buy. In...

Re: Upgrading my Stage Custom Kit

^^ Couldn't say it better myself.
Although I am a Mapex fan, and I'd promote the Mapex, I also think Yamaha makes great kits and Oak Customs are definitely phenomenal drums. I personally own an...

Re: Mapex M Birch vs Mapex Pro M

I personally own an M-Birch and I would recommend it no end. I think it is a fantastic kit and will definitely satisfy you. Of course, the Pro-M is just that little bit better. What I'm saying is...

Re: Help with drum kit choosing!

Isn't the Yammie a pro kit as compared to a Superstar and the Taye?
Just asking...
I have heard an Oak custom and it sounds phenomenal by the way, and I would recommend that definitely.

Re: Need some advice on kits

Well I just got a M-birch a bit over a month ago and I'm still utterly thrilled with it. I have to say, the finish is awesome, it's been a month and still everything looks good, the sound is AMAZING,...

Re: Yamaha Nouveau Lugs

I should probably add, when I bought my generic kit (which is utter rubbish) I got five free tension rods. Quite funny, considering my Mapex M-Birch had only one free tension rod and that was for the...

Re: M birch or just save the money?

I think it's very much worth it. I was comparing it in store and tuned well, it was (to my ear) as good as and sometimes even BETTER than kits $300-$400 more. Even with stock heads the toms sound...

Re: Quality of Drums - A Chart??

I disagree completely with the statement about the M-Birch. As you may or may not know I happen to own one (3 weeks old) and maybe it's because it's new or maybe it's because I came from a generic...

Re: How close are you to your Dream Kit?

Well my dream kit would be a Yamaha Maple Custom or a Tama Starclassic B/B in 22,8,10,12,14 and 16 floor, but I'm never going to get there.
I do have a Mapex M-Birch, which I will get around to...

Re: M Birch Or Pro M???

I would recommend the M Birch. I've actually just bought one today (YEAH!!! FINALLY!!!) and it's really good. The free tom (I got the 8".) is especially very nice, and I've noticed they ALL tune up...

Re: Finally getting a new kit

I've just been to the drum places in the city and I think if I can help it I'd rather get a kit from there over getting one from Victoria off ebay and shipping it up.

I've realised that sonically...

Re: Finally getting a new kit

I'm in Queensland.
The place I was getting most of these prices from was Drumpower in Victoria, but then it'd have to be shipped up.
Which, from past experience, I gather isn't the best thing to...
