Re: Tama StarClassic

Yup it's the same kit, I just removed the bass drum mount because I prefer stands to get the 10 and 12 close and stay that way when I play (hate when one tom moves out of place).

To my ears, the...

Tell him if he does it again, you will prison-pound him in the keister and wipe your junk on his grandmother's grave.

Re: It Happened Again!!

My band fell for that marketing hype recently but we actually did it in one session. In Clifton NJ, there's a place called "Mozart Studios" that uses a Sony 24 track from 80's. We did 3 songs in one...

Re: Tama Starclassic Performer B/B vs Yamaha Live Custom

I was down this road with both kits you mention recently (last few months).

Now, to be honest, I think Yamaha is THE best drum company, period. I love their drums and hardware more than anything,...

Re: HELP: Which road do I take?

Echoing what others have said, why not do both?

However, I have questions for you: do you see yourself playing other people's music for a long time happily? Do you enjoy making your own drum parts...

Re: Sold my stage customs, looking for mid range maple kit

I did the same a while back, and if you really liked the punch and attack of the stage customs, then go with KamaK's suggestion of the Signet's. I had the renowns and they were a bit softer/warmer....

Re: Meytal Cohen? She plays, right?

Spot on man. I just checked out Emanuelle Caplette just now - she's excellent, no BS just great playing.

Re: Meytal Cohen? She plays, right?

I just checked her out for the first time today after seeing this thread. The "Jagger" song linked below was very good, but I checked out Tom Sawyer at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rKFJbSzhovk -...

Re: Practicing on an electric kit....

Also, give the new Yamaha DTX a try. I've used Rolands since the late 90's and the TCS pads seem closer to acoustic than mesh. It's just my opinion, but I noticed that when I went from practicing on...

Re: i just want one kit :/

I had the same idea a month ago, which was to have just one great acoustic kit, so I downsized from 3 (sold all of them) and I now have one great kit that I plan to hold on to for a while - Tama...

Re: Worst song ever

Nope, this is: http://youtu.be/iq_d8VSM0nw and this guy actually has a record contract - this vid has over 33 million views. Sickening... comedy or not.

It's really a testament to the statements...

Re: Carmine Appice Lobbies For Led Zeppelin Drum Spot

Exactly. I don't understand how someone could show up at gig like this (or any for that matter) and NOT be prepared - you can tell he did not rehearse on his own. Oh wait, maybe his ego prevented...

Thanks man, almost forgot about that - now I remember his instructional vid back in the 90's.

Re: Heavy music, where did the ride go?

For the metal and hard rock stuff I use a heavier ride (K Custom) and 13" hats on the right and a zilbel on the left - basically you have to figure out what sound will cut through and drive the parts...

Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

Exactly. There are scores of people out there and around us operating on false bravado 24/7 - it's sickening. Even worse, some of the some of these people are parents.

Re: Shoes and Gloves

I used to wear gloves in the 90's, because of the bashing, sweaty hands and the pain.

I realized in the 2000's after seeing the Weckl Natural Evolution DVD, I didn't need gloves, I needed to use...

Very true, this guy is amazing at what he does technically.
