Re: NAMM get-together?

Gents - I'm in again - I think this will be year 3 or 4 in a row. It's always a pleasure to meet up, even though I'm an infrequent poster to this website.

Re: C&C Player Date...

Killer, American made drums. Played around with them a bit at NAMM and was very impressed. It's tough to hear through the noise at NAMM, but these sounded nice. The soundfile on MDS sounds...

Bermuda is going to make us all guess! I saw him at NAMM (great to have the quick hang at the Ludwig booth)...but he didn't disclose the scoop.

I'm guessing Craviatto! Although Vinnie could play...

Re: Ludwig Classic Maple - Gold Sparkle

Redbeard...sizes are:
Sizes: (depth x diameter)

* 9x13 Mounted Tom
* 16x16 Floor Tom

Good classic sizes. I'll probably add a 16x18, as I like to play...

Re: Ludwig Classic Maple - Gold Sparkle

Actually, it'll look a bit different. Gold Sparkle and Gold Glass Glitter are different. I like both finishes, but for me...Gold Sparkle was the classic pick. I've had my eyes on one of these for...

Re: FLOOR TOM POSITIONING: FLAT OR TILTED

Tilted...AWAY from me...Carlock style. I saw him doing it, gave it a try...seems to work well when I'm playing traditional. Certain he isn't the first to do this, but he's the first I've seen live....

Re: Birch kick

Just adding on to what drumac just said...I wouldn't get too hung up about maple vs birch (generally). I realize this is a gear forum, and the purpose is to dissect the details around gear, choices,...

Re: Refinishing a Kit

Amazing work...wow. I want to be very careful about keeping that first ply intact, but it sounds like sanding is the best option? I was hoping that the turquoise stain on the Yammy's was easier to...

Used Yamaha Maple Absolute

Friends,
I need a bit of help. I passed on the Maple Custom set I inquired about (on this forum)...turned out it was a 20' kick and not a 22'. I wanted a 22.
So...I've found another used set. ...

Re: Yamaha Maple Custom

Talking about Maple Customs, not MCAs.
Yeah, I hear you about the 'friend' thing. Fortunately for him, he's not hurting for dough. He's willing to part with these as he just acquired a new DW...

Re: Calling All DW Fans...What is this Finish!?

Alex - thanks for the quick reply...but I'm sitting here (wonderfully) in a room with a Tobacco Fade (not mine)...and it's not the same. This kit is a few years old, but I don't think it's a match. ...
