Re: My Kit Build Begins!

It seems to me like the spacing between your kick/snare/hats is rather large, which is pretty typical with beginners. I typically like to keep my snare directly in front of my high rack tom, or as...

Re: My Kit Build Begins!

^THIS

I've been had by this exact scenario more than once in the past. There isn't much more alarming than an animal darting out of your kick drum when you start playing, not to mention, it makes...

Re: Acrolite and new emperor=broken lug

Agreed, an emperor as a snare side head is kind of ridiculous, you should opt for a hazy 300 or at the thickest, an ambassador, but definitely nothing 2-ply.

As for the head seating on the bearing...

Re: Spots in Chicago?

If I recall correctly, I did see somebody with what appeared to be a kick drum head in a box, and this gentleman was very thankful to whomever helped him out in acquiring it, so that makes perfect...

Re: Spots in Chicago?

Thanks so much for the Vic's recommendation guys, this place is amazing. I was given a grand tour, and now I'm currently standing about ten feet from Bernard Purdie waiting to check out. I just...

Re: Why the "hate" for nylon tips??

I used to swear by and exclusively play wood tips. I opted for cymbals that worked well with wood tips to offer that stick definition we all love. But then I realized that the music I was playing...

Re: The session guys!

Maybe I just have a soft spot for Josh Freese, being that he's played on some of my favorite albums, but I think he would be a great candidate

Re: Drums on Carpet

If you have thick carpeting with padding underneath, it can definitely have an effect on feel. The padding will absorb more shock than one would expect. So rather than energy being dispersed back...

Re: 70s Pearl fiberglass kit??

From the looks of the bass drum mounted tom bracket, it would suggest that it was only ever outfitted with one rack tom, being that there's only room to mount one of Pearl's tom arms. Two floor toms?

Re: 70s Pearl fiberglass kit??

Just judging by the lugs and hardware (and the fact that it only has 8 lugs per side on the kick drum), it looks like any other stencil kit to me, just with a Pearl badge on it instead of a CB700...

Re: Drum shops in NYC or San Fran

Woah. I just posted essentially this same thread about Chicago, and then hit the "New Posts" link and saw this.

How ironic

Spots in Chicago?

I'll be in Chicago this weekend, visiting the Natural History Museum, and I figured if I have some time to kill, I'd like to stop by some cool drum shops if I can find some.

So, does anybody know...

Re: Trick 360 suspension mounts

It seems like a good design, but man are they ugly. Honestly, I'd rather stick with a RIMS mount

Re: First time drilling a shell

They went on my Yamaha legs without much resistance. No lubrication needed.

Re: Tricks for faster set up

Maybe I'm more accustomed to rushed show schedules than the next guy, but it only takes me about 15 minutes to get everything from the car into the venue and set up, ready to go.

I play a standard...

Re: First time drilling a shell

Just search Amazon for them, they're like $12 and fit 3/8" legs, which is most models unless you have a kit with the thinner legs (some Pearl Visions, some DW, some PDP)

Re: Tricks for faster set up

Gibraltar makes a sweet quick release hi-hat clutch, I won't use anything else. I can set up or tear down my hats in a matter of seconds. You could also go with the Tama cymbal mates or something...

Re: Good kits for under $1000???

I've got a buddy with the same set of Crush Acrylics. They're awesome drums for the price. I'd like to pick up a set myself

Re: Good kits for under $1000???

Wow, that looks like an awesome deal for a gorgeous kit. I used to hate PDP, but they've really stepped it up in HUGE ways recently

Re: Ludwig Black Beauty VS Black Magic

I've played a Black Beauty, and I own a WorldMax Black Hawg. I actually prefer my WorldMax snare to the BB I played, but they are different sizes and have different hoops/heads/tuning, and that most...

As somebody who regularly runs sound, it is my experience that, as long as the microphones used are good quality and the mixer preamps aren't junk, that the louder the source volume is (to a...

Re: I Need To Identify This Snare

I did a rewrap project on an old CB700 kit a while back, and it came with a similar snare. Though the one I have is 14x6.5 (I believe) and has 10 generic stencil kit lugs. Even with the warped...

Re: Told to hit harder

If your sound guy is a good sound guy, he has a valid point here, and I'll explain why:

When he mics your snare, there are two stages of volume control. First there is the gain applied to the...

Re: First time drilling a shell
