Re: 1974 Tama Royalstar Snare Question

Ok, so I put a magnet to it, as suggested above, and it is indeed steel.

Based on another reply above, the interior matte finish is probably nickel, and the swath of copper must be a bleed from...

1974 Tama Royalstar Snare Question

I bought a 5-piece Royalstar kit new in 1974. It came with a "Chrome" seamed snare, Model #7586. This thing sounds friggin' awesome. Nice and fat, over a wide range of tunings. I also have a 2013...

Re: Carpeted or ATA Racks - Opinions, please...

You're right, we have deviated a bit from the original topic... sort of. Yes, my initial intent is to lighten the load, and reduce stacking height if possible. If I am going to replace my carpeted...

Re: Carpeted or ATA Racks - Opinions, please...

But, what happens when not all cases are the same footprint sizes? Then you have metal on laminate (I think the 3/8" laminate models are better then 3/8" fibreboard), which I would think almost...

Re: Carpeted or ATA Racks - Opinions, please...

Now that I think about it, my drums literally flew the world when fiber cases were the only ones available, and you're right, nothing bad really happened. But, then again, drums are relatively light,...

Re: Carpeted or ATA Racks - Opinions, please...

Aren't flight cases 3/8" as well? How to they hold up to the abuse of air travel? Although my current band doesn't travel far, I previously flew to gigs, and may do so again at some point. So, if I...

Re: Carpeted or ATA Racks - Opinions, please...

I think you misunderstood my post. I was saying that I was wondering if ATA rack panels being only 3/8" were less protective. It almost doesn't make sense that the thinner construction is flight...

Re: Carpeted or ATA Racks - Opinions, please...

Thanks for the reply. Maybe the initial decision to go carpeted was the right one, for me. Local travel only, packed by us.

Is the ATA stuff significantly lighter than wood/carpet? Also, I can't...

Re: Carpeted or ATA Racks - Opinions, please...

Thanks for reply.

I, personally, like the look of the carpeted racks, because they tend to fade into the background, whereas the metal of the ATA cases clutters up the overall presentation of a...

Carpeted or ATA Racks - Opinions, please...

All the racks I currently have are of the carpeted variety, but wanted some opinions from those who have experience with both carpeted and ATA/Flight cases. I have 12-space, 8-space, 7-space, 6-space...

Re: Help Decide: Saturn or Starclassic B/B

FWIW, I was looking at Pearl Masters and Tama Bubingas (I always preferred Tama for everything; I even have a Tama throne and a 3-tier original Brushed Stainless Tama Power Tower) before I gambled on...

Re: Help Decide: Saturn or Starclassic B/B

Haven't read the posts on this thread, but I just got back from a Guitar Center near me. They have a gorgeous, used, natural finish Mapex Saturn down there for $674! It looked pristine, although I'll...
