Re: Ludwig Lug Splay Solution

That's not necessarily true. I had splay issues with one (non-Ludwig) snare when I put S-hoops on it, but had no issues with a set of 3mm triple-flanged hoops.

Honestly, I wouldn't worry about the...

Re: Is this more money than sense?

Last I heard, Bermuda has something like 160 pairs of hihats... And I have no idea how many drums, but I'm sure it's quite a few. So really, Sticks is pretty small time, by comparison. And to be...

Re: "Square" Ludwigs

It's not like Ludwig /had/ to buy off-the-shelf Keller tubes. They could still spec out their own ply formula so the shell specs were identical to the ones made in-house.

Re: Hang Drums - Newb Questions

So "hang" appears to be more of a brand name than a generic term. Maybe you should be looking at pan drums, tank drums, or steel tongue drums.

Re: Snare with natural reverb....

If you tune the batter on a snare much lower than people normally do, more like a tom, you will get more head sustain/resonance, which will give you more snare sustain. You won't have a lot of...

Re: Won a steambent shell - how am I going to configure it?

You can get 3.0mm triple flange hoops from DrumFactoryDirect. Shouldn't be any issue with mic clips, they sound great, and also occupy that functional space between cast and 2.3mm triple flange.

Re: Ultimate Deathmatch: Renown Vs. Saturn

I kept googling, and did find a link with some measurements. I can't vouch for the accuracy: http://woodshed.gretschdrums.com/forums/topic/19/gretsch-renown-shells

The difference in thickness is...

Re: Ultimate Deathmatch: Renown Vs. Saturn

Where do you see that the Renown shells are thinner than the Saturns? Saturn toms are pretty thin at 5.1mm, I'd be surprised if the Gretsch were anything but the same or thicker by a hair. I don't...

Re: Playing while injured

Oh, I agree, ibuprofen is a good idea. A fist full of Valium and Vicodin? Not so much.

Re: Playing while injured

Larry, you are a grade-A dumbass. A doctor can properly diagnose your injury and tell you how to rehab it properly. That may include the amount of rest you need, special exercises, how to wrap the...

Re: snare build advice

Thinner metal shells are often rolled, thicker shells are often cast. You'd be looking to make a rolled shell. You'll need to figure out how to make a clean weld/braze of the joint. Bearing edges...

Re: Drumcraft question!

You can try contacting Drumcraft and find out if they have a "stock location" for the mount. Alternatively, I believe that DW, Taye, and Tama have adjustable/sliding bass mounts which simplify the...

Re: Finishing the insides of shells

That's really too much to buy without some evidence. Show me the test results where you lacquered lumber and measured its "stiffness." Show me the double-blind tests describing the tone of a drum. ...

Re: Drum Finishing

The simple solution would be to use a water based clear like Minwax Polycrylic, which cleans up with water, is low-VOC, and easily found at home improvement stores.

Re: Extreme snare vibration off centre...

The first thing I'd do is switch to a hazy Ambassador on the bottom of the drum. 3 mil thick heads are the default standard on snare drums for a reason. If you hunt through the Heads & Stickforum...

Re: Pork Pie BOB tuning advice please

My Acrolite is my low/fat drum with a G2 and 42 strand snares. Maybe you should keep using the BOB as your poppy snare, and tune the Acro down? Or maybe you're discovering that you like your snares...

Re: Tama Superstar tension rods

Pearl has used different-sized t-rods on bass drums (and only bass drums). My old Exports were like that.

Sure, there's a big difference when you go from the toy class, to the student class, to the intermediate class. But at that point, is there that much difference? Intermediate and "pro" drums might...

Re: Bang for your buck. How significant?

In most cases involving typical modern drums, differences in quality of construction and sound get smaller somewhere a little above $1k. Then you're paying for a finish, custom sizes, and at after a...

Re: How easy is this to seal?

If I had to work on that drum I'd settle for the battle-scarred-but-clean look. Sand back the old finish, smooth the rough spots a little, and then just lacquer it up again. I wouldn't try to sand...

All you need is a clamp like this and you can attach the form arm you already have to any cymbal stand:
