Re: Tom Setup with Tuning

That kit must be the size of my house ;-)

'=feet
"=inches

Seriously though. Vision Birch usually sells 12, 13, 16. What other options are available to you for the kit you own?

Re: drum tuners

Indeed, though it does not excuse the musician for not knowing how to tune their instrument. How many guitarists "can't" tune up without a digital tuner? The answer is none, because they're not a...

Re: drum tuners

When I first began, I had trouble tuning. So every Monday I would force myself to re-tune my drums from scratch. It took a month or two and now I can tune them quickly by ear. I sometimes use a...

Re: How to remove badges?

You can always drill the rivet, or take the inside flange off with a Dremel.

Re: 2003 DW Collectors Series - Broken Glass finish

I've only ever heard about the "May" system, which is just a couple isolated arms for normal mics surrounded by the usual vortex of marketing, pseudoscience, and unnecessary patents. They're not...

Re: Anyone have this new Gretsch snare yet?

At a glance.

It's a brass supra clone that's 1mm thick instead of 2mm.

Much like every $200 supra clone, it probably sounds a bit like a brass supra but will lack in clarity, sensitivity, and...

Re: Two floor toms....

I've been attempting to find a matching 14" floor of my kit for the past 7 months, and have to ask..

The crash on your right... How do you hit it without standing up and walking around the kit?

I like the mirror effect, it totally makes you look left handed ;-)

Re: Left hand: uneven strikes & poor grip. Advice needed

Many of us are in the same boat. People who come to drums from guitar/bass have two completely heterogeneous hands. The strumming hand (usually the right) is so overbearingly dominant/independent...

Re: Member leading other members on in a series of misleading questions in threads.

Understand that the only thing we all have in common is that we pick up drum sticks and bang on inanimate objects.

Take that away and we're the same schmucks, dumbasses, and a-holes that you find...

Re: Snare under $200

While I do not know if that is the case, I was certainly unimpressed with the options MF presented. They were indeed intermediate-level stock snare options, with some 'signature series' stock...

Re: Snare under $200

Request: Go to the local store and tell us which 5 wood snares they have in stock, so we can make an informed choice.

Re: Cleaning a Ludwig LM400

To keep things clean, I recommend getting a cheap $10 bundle of automotive towels, and a single nice non-abrasive microfiber cloth (the type they sell for televisions). I use the towels for normal...

Re: Newby Question

I hope others can offer suggestions as well.

1: Bring your pedal to a drummer/friend's place and sort it on their kit.

Re: Building a cool Drum Riser

Do you recall how he did it? It seems Likely that the BD case alone could do the conversion if the 4 sides folded down. The front and top would detach for the left/right of the throne.

Re: What kind of grip does this drummer use?

Look into both French and German. The big thing is that you shouldn't just have one grip, you should have all of them and be able to switch between them depending on the material or whatever your...

Re: Got about 15 mins each day to increase speed... How should I practice?

Indeed. I'm a bit confounded by it as well, having been tricked into responding to a previous thread. I'm not sure if he's trolling, or perhaps gets a bit too far into the herb, but something is...

Re: Building a cool Drum Riser

I always thought it would be interesting to custom-build travel cases for drums that doubled as the drum riser.

Re: Renown and New Classic Question

I sorta agree.

IMHO, the die-cast rims are what makes the Renown the "USA Lite". It looks like Gretsch makes different options (Rims, Wood Compositions, Edges) available through the Marquee and...

Re: Cost to ship a kit?

Brunswick NJ --> Albany NY was $40 and change for the Renown shell pack. I was expecting it to be a bit higher.
