Re: Do we really need expensive drums?

Depends what you need them for.

Certain things can only be done with very expensive drums.

Re: Wfd starts next thursday july 17

That officially confirms that I do heel/toe incorrectly.

Oh well - it works for me.

I get two hits with one downward leg motion (heel and toe), and none on the way back up.

Re: For those interested in a Gretsch Renown...

I took a quick peek yesterday and found it at one place for that price - they had two sets left.

Not sure if this is the same place, but it has one kit left at a bit higher price:

Re: 10.000 hours of practice is not the magic number

Having 'mastered' a skill implies that it can't be done any better.

I'm not sure I agree with that concept at all.

Re: 10.000 hours of practice is not the magic number

2 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, for 14 years is 10,220 hours.

I usually hear 10 years, rather than 10,000 hours given as the time it takes to master a physical skill.

Both...

Re: Beginning drummer: what to buy for practice?

There's an almost overwhelming amount of options today. A lot depends on what you want to do.

You probably want to hear some noise when you're playing. With electronic stuff, you'll need...

Re: Double Pedal

I tried to describe my experience with it and how long it took me.

No one can say how long it would take TheDrumster (or anyone else) to progress.

Maybe quickly, maybe never, maybe somewhere...

Re: Double Pedal

I played single pedal for a lot of years too. A couple years ago, I decided to try a double.

At first, I thought, this won't take long. But that bubble was burst quickly.

Re: Help Choosing A Bop Kit

Seems like a Silverstar bop kit in the same finish, if possible, would be ideal for mix and match.
You'll share hardware and cymbals between the kits?

EDIT: as below - new or used? Besides...

Looks like the original 3 sets sold. But 3 more sets are now available.

Re: Snare Advice!

Of the two you listed, I'd go with the Pork Pie.

Depending on what you're playing a 10" snare might not cut it.

Re: Do we really need expensive drums?

I'd modify that slightly to; Expensive drums are for ppl who can hear a difference, and can afford them.

On the other hand, lots of what's involved in making some drums more expensive, doesn't...

Re: Help Choosing A Bop Kit

Depends on your budget. I've got a couple inexpensive Yamaha Stage Custom bop kits, and they do just fine for me. I tried the Silverstar set when looking and liked those too.

Re: Should I get this snare?

There are other aluminum alternatives.

I got a new Pearl Sensitone Elite for a price in-between a used and a new Acrolite.
I like it, but would like it more in a different size. It's 14x5, but...

The standard size snare drum diameter chosen by manufacturers should have been 13 inches.

Many are Called, but Few are Chosen.

Someone's going to get a good deal on that kit.

I think one set sold since the first post.

Re: Yamaha Drums

Nice find - I was wrong. Some places still have new previous generation kits.
Anyone who wants one probably shouldn't dawdle around too long though.

Beautiful drum kit configurations


Considered on looks alone, I think it's hard to beat 1 up, 1 down.
It's not my favored configuration for actually playing though.

In the order I acquired them:
