Re: "Projection" of drums

In regards to measuring the loudness of drums, I use this definition:

Re: "Projection" of drums

That's how I think of projection too. Not thick/thin, but how far away can they be heard.

I think the only objective way to test it would be to use a decibel meter at various distances for shells...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

I burned out on buying stuff, so I took a break from it for a while.
But I picked up a 21" K Sweet Ride:

Re: "Jazz Kit" Poll: Yamaha or Gretsch

If the use would be around town gigs and jams rather than high profile,
I'd probably go with the Stage Custom bop kit, if budget is of any concern at all.
I've had two of those sets and they tune...

Re: Die cast hoops

I've also run across some used Yam. DC aluminum hoops that were bent.
Not sure what it took to get the that way, because like I say, they were used.

Not too hard to bend them back somewhere close...

Re: Die cast hoops

I'm pretty sure that if you've got a 14" floor tom, it only has 6 lugs. The 14" DC hoops have 8 holes.
Not sure about all the other size variations.

Re: Matching Gear, Cool or Dorky?

Good.... if you're marketing to yourself.

A little over the top if they're going to be marketing pictures for displaying your wraps to the general public.

Re: What are my drums worth and best way to sell

Sounds like you have some very nice kits.

In regards to selling the Maple Customs, I'd just say remain optimistic, realistic, and patient.
People who may be considering your set will most likely...

Re: I'm tired of standard drumkits. Need inspiration and ideas

I played around with that idea too.
I had 10" and 12" snares mounted on a bass drum, a 14" snare as a floor tom, and a 13" main snare.
The novelty wore off quickly for me.

Re: Yamaha Tour Custom

Probably so, but I still think that Tama has more 'Star' name variations than Yamaha has 'Custom' name variations, making it more difficult to distinguish the various lines from them.

Re: Yamaha Tour Custom

I think Tama is as bad with their Star variations (maybe worse), than Yamaha is with their Custom variations.

Imperial Star
Rock Star
GranStar
Swing Star
Silver Star
Stage Star

Screws hold the plies together - no glue.

Re: What's the worst drumming advice you've ever received?

You don't want to play the drums.
You'll play the accordian so that you can join a polka band.

I think I had a lesson or two on the...

Re: 12" or 14"

I had a kit set up sort of like that for a while.
Used a 13" main snare, and had 10, 12, and 14" snares in the traditional mounted toms/floor tom configuration.
Didn't turn out to be as useful,...

Re: 12" or 14"

I had a kit with deep 13 and 14 mounted toms for a lot of years.

After getting used to the 10/12 mounted combo, that old style seems ridiculously big.
That said, i could easily live with 12/13...

Re: New bass drum hoop finishing

I used water poly as a clear coat for the first time last year - used a spray gun.
What a treat. No bad smells, super easy gun cleanup, and the results were more than acceptable.

Re: Why Do Most Compact Kits Have 14" Snares?

I've got several 13" snares that sound really good to me.
I don't consider them small anymore. They're just the normal size for me.

I've had 12" and 10" snares too, but didn't like them as...

Re: Does anyone actually do gigs with large bass drums any more?

Me too.

At home, my 5 pc. kit with a 20" bass drum is most comfortable for me.
If I were to play a lot of gigs, I'd most likely want to bring my Jazzette.

Re: Does anyone actually do gigs with large bass drums any more?

I was at a Harley dealer party yesterday.
They had a 3 pc. blues/rock band and the drummer was using a small Ludwig set.
Pretty sure it was a Breakbeats.
