Re: Deep bass drums

22x16 was a standard during 80' and 90's.
To me, this is the best depth, 18" depth is less practical for transportation, small stages and not necessary soundwise. 20" depth is overkilled.
14" depth...

Re: Bd size options / experience

18" means also a drum riser, which could be a pain.

Re: Anybody like big bass drums?

It looks like a joke really.
I wonder how he came to the idea that it'd be playable or just movable.
Anyway if you find mesh heads that size you can turn it into a trampoline !

Re: Loudest snare drum ever?

The loudest I came across were generally the metal one, particularly the pearl FF steel, and also the brass piccolo which was aggressive and bloody loud. A pain for the ears ! With either one, you...

Re: What are the stories behind famous drummers kits?

The first to incorporate splash cymbal ? I think it was Stewart Copeland.
The suspended floor ? I think it was Gadd, followed by Weckl.
The first to you use two toms mounted on the bass drum, not...

Re: If you could decide for your favorite manfacturer's standard sizes?

Even if I could, of course, live with it, I know I would make a compromise by buying for example, a Renown with deep 22x18 and a tiny 10x7. Make it two inches less on the bass and one or two more on...

Re: If you could decide for your favorite manfacturer's standard sizes?

Through this thread, we see that manufacturers should really consider going back to shallower bass drum. 22x16 or 14".
The move to shallower floor toms was a good one, the move to small rack...

Re: If you could decide for your favorite manfacturer's standard sizes?

Exactly what I currently play :
22x16
10x9
12x10
16x14

Please bring back the 22x16 bass drum and deeper tom in the 10 12 16 configuration. 10x7 is too shallow, not enough body to my ears.

Re: Can you identify this Kit?

Looks like royalstar, but the bass Spurs aren't genuine.
Tension lugs and bass Spurs casing were kind of fragile. I restored an equivalent set few years ago.

Re: What brands holds their value the most

I'm talking from France, so the market maybe different, old Sonor hold value pretty well (more than Premier) and Ludwig can be seen really overpriced (even with peeled chrome or so).

Re: What brands holds their value the most

Gretsch seem to hold their value quite fine, DW too - but - I've seen many DW kits with goofy finish or odd sizes, that few people will seek.

Re: Tama Star Drums - Bubinga, Maple and Walnut In-depth Review

I agree about the perfect tuning. How did you achieve.
By the way, I think I’m in love with the maple kit finish.

Re: Tama Star Drums - Bubinga, Maple and Walnut In-depth Review

Thanks for the video. I’m blown away by the sound of the Walnut Star. Even if all the kits sounded damn good, the darker tone of the walnut was incredible.
Those kits are gorgeous.

Re: Please share your wrap wish-list

I like pearlescent white wrap, with a bit of richness in the reflection, not basic white.
Satin black may look cool too.
Champagne sparkles (but not too pink) or broken glass sparkle (DW) are very...

Re: What Would A DW Music Section Look Like?

I think it would be great idea. It's good to share musical discoveries, break some boundaries too, listening to music would have never been attracted too.

Re: The 16x14 floor tom

The matter of depth with the 16" seems to be the floor proximity and articulation. Otherwise depth is noticeable : ever tried a hyperdrive tom ? the sound is really different.

Re: The 16x14 floor tom

I always felt the square 16x16" growls more, and feels "fuller" with more bottom end. 16x14" has never been easier for me to tune (and I haven't...

Bigger drums tuned high with single ply : that’s it.
Indé drums don’t have any gasket on their shells, with lightweight lugs. I guess the drums are all about sustain.
