Vintage Yamaha C200 kit- ready to gig!

OK - got my 1967 Yamaha kit ready to go. I patched more holes, installed new heads, bass drum got Gibraltar spurs, and the tom lugs were stuffed with cotton to keep the springs from rattling. It's...

I dunno. What’s going on?

Re: Snares in checked luggage

I wish I could help you there, but the boots were my wife’s. First trip to Nashville and she finds five pairs that fit her really well. So of course, I don’t tell her “no” as to how many she can...

Re: Snares in checked luggage

First checked bag is limited to 50 pounds, as shown here from the American Airlines website: https://www.aa.com/i18n/travel-info/baggage/checked-baggage-policy.jsp

23 kgs is what you're shooting...

Re: Snares in checked luggage

I thought your weight limit on the first checked bag was 50 pounds?

Re: What drums intrigue you that you have NEVER owned

A high-end Gretsch USA kit in bop sizes. 14x18 bass drum, 8x12 and 14x14 toms. I'm intrigued to see how good they can sound, but I've never tried it. I think 18" bass drums are too little for my...

Re: Deep bass drums

I get it, but when you're in a mic'ed up situation, all bets are off ;)

Re: How do you know when to crash?

Even if you listened to all the music you could, there's no definitive answer for this. All you can do is be familiar with the music you're playing and eventually the when will become more apparent...

Re: The "Evolution" of the Ludwig Breakbeats/Questlove Kit

Well, that would make it easier to manufacture if they all use the same parts. So Ludwig makes more profit by saving a step or two. I could see these changes being a real drag if it was a top...

Re: Mixer for direct monitoring?

I have no pictures, but I usually stick with a Mackie 1604VLZ3 or a Yamaha O1v, for precisely the reasons you mentioned: I need the available auxiliary inputs and outputs. I think in analog world,...

Re: Deep bass drums

I'm one of those guys who've played them at all depths and this is loaded question because it's dependent on the heads you use, whether or not you're using an internal muffler of some sort. Usually,...

Re: Base Drum volume. HELP Please talk me down off this ledge.

Why not play a big 16x26 bass drum then? That would give you the extra oomph acoustically and you would need no electronics. If you absolutely have to go through a PA, you could literally mic up a...

Re: Base Drum volume. HELP Please talk me down off this ledge.

I think it would be easier to just have the powered sub, a small mixer, then just mic your regular bass drum and run just that through the sub. Circular wood shells can be strong, but I don't think...

Re: Progress on the vintage Yamahas

Just this one so far: https://youtu.be/4-KVBYzf6is

But now the kit is back in pieces for now. I need to pack the lugs on the small tom since one of the springs is rattling. And the bass drum...

Re: Progress on the vintage Yamahas

It's probably some mystery combination of woods. Maybe luan, maybe mahogany, maybe birch. The inner ply that goes horizontal inside the shell certainly looks more maple now that it's been re-oiled,...

Re: I wonder if Neil Peart will ever play again?

I wish him the best retirement - and if he never plays again, that's cool too. He totally deserves a break.

Re: Vintage Yamaha's are complete!

I have some heavier heads to try - I think you're right, I'm gonna go for that to fatten them up.

The little Charlie Watts spurs are also not working out for me. I will be upgrading to modern...

Re: Why are drummers/musicians/music-listeners so defensive online?

No, it's just the nature of the internet. People just say stuff they're not brave enough to actually say in-person - they are keyboard warriors. And it's not just music stuff, anything gets...

Re: Snare buZZZZZZ and recording

So are you doing this with close miking? Then right there, you're already not getting a natural sound. To get natural, just throw up two very good overhead mics and record yourself in stereo. ...

Re: Vintage Yamaha's are complete!

For a few minutes I was tempted - but the feeling was squashed when I realized the little kit was getting in on the territory of my Pearls. Thanks for the suggestion though - sometimes 14x14 is just...

Re: Pearl brass Sensitone video!

I have to admit as well, this being my real first Sensitone, I am surprised. I remember getting this kind of tone from a Ludwig Black Beauty thinking that drum was the only way to get it. But even...

Re: Snare buZZZZZZ and recording

You need to delve into the realm of dynamics processors. Try a noise gate on the snare, that should alleviate a lot coming from the snare that doesn't get over a certain threshold. There are...

Re: Deep bass drums

I dunno. I’ve come to like the 18x22, especially after years in the 14” camp. I can make either depth work. What’s weird to me is shallower bass drums. There’s so much marketing about “gigging”...

It took a few days but the little Yamaha kit is up and running! It's actually a joy to play - it sounds decent. I repaired the extra holes with caps and wood filler and some paint. The floor tom...

Re: Pearl brass Sensitone video!

I do like how the die cast hoops focus it a bit more. It doesn’t seem wildly ringy, just good ringy. You have to specify which Sensitone you’re talking about though. Pearl does include snares...
