Re: Sakae drums

I don't have any prices actually. We generally don't bother with them much these days because the site is seen in so many different countries it kinda makes pricing them - in Stirling particularly -...

Re: Sakae drums

Who's Chris? :o) Yep, know him from well before he started with the site actually. I am planning to be at the LDS at some point, not sure when yet, but I may turn up to buy another snare if I can.

Re: Sakae drums

MikeDolbear.com

From what I've heard of the official samples of the kits I have at the moment, they sound just like the kits as they are in the room.

Re: Sakae drums

I have two Celestial kits to review at the moment. Some of the nicest drums I think I've played so far.

Re: Thoughts about Sonor SQ2 and Thomann - beware!

Not to dwell on this, but I've been to the Sonor factory in Germany and seen these drums being made. The people that make them are proud of what they do and many have been there a long time. I'll add...

Re: Acrylic drums.

I have a set of RCIs and theyre some of my favourite drums for both live and recording.

I had them make me 10/6, 12/6 and 14/14 toms and a 20/20 kick and theyre great sounding, especially the kick.

Re: The expensive drum stigma....

This thread is funny.

I'm going off now to count all my expensive Craviottos, Dunnetts, Yamahas, RCIs, Ludwigs, DWs and think about what a bad boy I am for owning more drums than some shops and...

Re: Custom built, UK based drums.

Just a couple of points which may be neither here nor there but you might want to consider.

Who are you in terms of having a name? Why would a small company which isn't likely to have much stock,...

Re: CRAVIOTTO snares

Any half decently built drum which has good heads on it and is tuned properly will sound good, regardless of the brand.

Apart from that, I have ten Craviottos with two more on the way and they all...

Re: Ludwig Gold Triumphal Snare

I've reviewed the Remo and Promark drums and neither of them did it for me at all. The Remo drum was THE biggest PoS I've come across in seven years of reviewing drums. The Promark drum was pretty...

Re: 1920's drum tuning, help!

If you want to get a 1920s snare sound, get a 1920s snare. You'll see/hear why if you try one. Calf heads aren't so much of a necessity as you can modern equivilents. The bass drum would, as said,...

Re: Looking for Lars Ulrich's drum sizes from the 80's

Unless it's a typo above, he never used an 11" tom; they were 12,13, 14 & 15 mounted toms. Phil Gould is the only person I ever saw using an 11" tom. When LU changed it was 10, 12, 14 & 16. I...

Re: The Ludwig Acrolite

Thanks mate.

The one on the left still has the ally hoops, the other one doesn't.

The hoops themselves are in reasonable shape given that they're nearly 50 years old. They are very light and I...

Re: Hayman Drums

I have two kits - 22, 12, 13, 16, 16 & 26, 13, 13, 16.

They are great drums with character. The finishes can be a bit hit and miss as they were pretty crap to begin with, but they are some nice...
