Re: First time buyer advice

No offense... but while those are all great things to look for - if I was selling a drum set to someone and they came over with all these tools and wanted to take everything apart, put it on a flat...

Re: SJC, yay or nay....

Friend of mine used to play an SJC kit and it sounded great - but then again, he also paid a boatload for it... so I'd hope it sounded great. Now he's switched to another "custom" builder, who makes...

Re: Gretsch Brooklyn COB or Pearl SE?

+1 to this. I actually owned a Black Beauty and bought the Pork Pie BOB as a backup.

Ended up liking the BOB so much that I sold the Ludwig, because it sounded close enough and it was A LOT...

Re: First time buyer advice

+1, even B8s are worth more than $100, plus you get the hardware with it. $100 is about what you'd pay for a good 16" crash cymbal... so I'd just spend the extra cash and get everything in one go...

Re: Gretsch Brooklyn COB or Pearl SE?

What exactly are hoping that the Gretsch and Pearl will do that your Pork Pie won't?

I honestly don't see either of those as an upgrade to what you already have and rather, a lateral move. The...

Re: Pearl Free Floater (advice)

Wut?

I'd pay more for the aluminum shell. Sounds like a good deal to me... aluminum is the best metal <3



On a separate note - I'm about to buy a free floater and was curious if anyone has...

Re: My First Ludwig Acrolite

Haha. Yeah, I mean... it doesn't really make sense how a metal shelled snare would really different in sound, unless the formula had changed or hardware, etc... but I'd say if there's any difference...

Re: My First Ludwig Acrolite

I dunno - I had a Black Galaxy Acro that sounded great, but I ended up getting rid of it because there was just something to that snare I couldn't put my finger on that I didn't like. Bought a '66...

Re: RANT: Dissapointed in Sonor

Re: 99 ludwig 9 plys

Sweet! These look great - just like my 60's kit, but more shiny :P

Re: First time buyer advice

Those Pearl Sessions are professional-level drums. As long as they're in good shape, those are (far and above) much better than the others IMO.

Re: PDP Concept Maple vs. DW Design Series

I currently own a Yamaha Oak Custom kit and a vintage 3-ply Ludwig Classic kit, before that, I played a custom-built C&C kit that cost twice what my two current kits did... the PDP CX kit I owned...

Re: Pearl Masters Custom Maple

There are Performers and then there are Performer B/B (Birch/Bubinga). I don't know enough about those kits to tell the difference at first glance, but it looks like ineedaclutch is saying that they...

Re: We're not copying Travis Barker

I really like flat toms, personally - I find them far more ergonomic than angled toms, assuming the rack tom is low enough for me to not have to be standing to hit them.

That being said, I can't...

Re: Opinions on what to do with these old ludwig Classic Maples?

I'd definitely keep that wrap. You don't see something like that pop up often - rewrapping those would be a travesty!

My LM402 is probably the least bright snare I own.

Re: Gretsch Catalina Ash

Why order one and then ask if it's going to be any good? Shouldn't you have asked these questions before you bought it...? :P

Re: If you had to choose between these entry levels

The only kit off that list I'd buy is the PDP. The CX line is pro-level kit, regardless of its low price. They used high quality shells and hardware and assembled them in Mexico, under DW's eye and...

Re: Hanging Toms vs. Floor Toms - Yamaha Hexrack

Functional-wise... I prefer legs, just because there's less hardware to get in the way, and it's less to carry and move around - usually much easier to position, especially if you're in a cramped...

Re: Deal of a lifetime or ripped off for being gullable

No offense, but you will NEVER be able to flip these and make money, unless you're willing to feed a bunch of BS to the next buyer, and they fall for it.

Even it IS a Sonor-built kit, it's not...

Re: Gretsch Stave Snare WOW

Nice! I really like the zig-zag snare I tried. Price is pretty steep on these, though. Think I'll stick with my M4 Drum Co. 14x8" Walnut / Maple stave :P
