Re: What are the stories behind famous drummers kits?

Well a lot of the changes in drums have corresponded to the changes in technology in the industry, as well as issues in practicality.

Drums got bigger when guys were playing heavier music in...

Re: Just an observation

There was a Psychology Today article or something a while back that explained why we like the music we grew up with.

Typically, when we're about 13 or 14, our brains are entering a very important...

Re: What snare di RHCP use

For BSSM, Chad used an old antique 14x5 Black Beauty, which he also used for Soul To Squeeze, which might have been recorded during that same session.

He said that since then he's been using...

Re: The future of the drumset think tank

Tama actually had these on their Starclassic Bubinga Omni-Tune kits for about 5-6 years. Cool concept. Don't think it ever took off though.

Re: Yamaha PHX - am I missing something?

The only things that bother me about the PHX kits are that there's no matching snare drum, and that it's $7000 for a kit that sounds like it plays in a lower range, which is the opposite of the Live...

Re: Drum Solo/Fill Letdowns

What Collins does is write great songs. He played what the song needed and it fits perfectly. It doesn't interrupt the mood, or the rhythm at all, and makes its point and gets out of the way.

Dealing with a controlling bandmate.

I'm probably using this forum improperly to vent my frustrations with one of my bands, and our obnoxious, super controlling, singer. But I honestly don't know anyone else who would understand the...

Re: Neil Peart

Alex basically just said a day or so ago that Rush is done for good. Hopefully those two will do an album together. It'd be cool if there were no drums on it too.

Re: Being impressed vs being moved

And if we are talking about rock or jazz,

Mick Fleetwood's off beat crashes on "Dreams" sure move me quite a bit, as does most of his drumming. Even if it is technically unimpressive.

Re: Being impressed vs being moved

People are seriously saying that drums can't be emotionally moving instruments?

Please remember that "drums" aren't just limited to rock or jazz drummers, or even drum set in general.

Re: Wow. Really?

At the end of the day, the drummer is the guy who needs to keep the band together and lead everyone through the song. If a drummer can do that, they usually have work readily available if they want...

Re: Best/Worst or Favorite/Least Favorite finishes?

I think every company kind of has a signature finish or two that screams "This is what our company is".

Re: Which Brass Snare???

I was in the market for a brass drum a while back, since I feel like just about any serious drummer should have one (the guy at my shop further enforced that point). I found a drum in 2112 Percussion...

Re: DW design series 10"tom issue

DW's toms are just free hanging. They're like that by design. It supposedly takes a lot of the stress off of the shell and allows it to vibrate more freely.

Re: I'm tired of standard drumkits. Need inspiration and ideas

I would set your drums up based on the music you're playing.

I used to have a really crazy setup, and it really didn't make a lot of sense, but I have since shifted to a much simpler basic setup...

Re: "cheap" drums

I currently own 3 kits, A Tama Starclassic Bubinga, A Pearl Export Series, and a cheap CB junior set.

I love my Tama kit dearly and it's obviously better built, tunes easier, sounds more to what...

Re: Used Pearl Masters, Pearl Session, or PDP?

Yeah the Pearl Masters is by far the best kit here and you'll no doubt get a lot of use out of it. The Masters Studio is a birch kit, but like Yamaha's birch absolute's sounds much warmer than a...

Re: Why don't pop songs have real drums?

Reason #1: It's insanely cheap. You pretty much pay one guy to come in and make a beat for you, and it's usually the same guy who has a hand in producing it. You can afford to get a studio that's...

Re: Bubinga now on CITES list.

Yeah, it seems kind of ridiculous that Tama would add a bunch of stuff to the SC Bubinga and B/B lines just to can them in a year or two. That's like their signature.

My best guess is that it's...

Bubinga now on CITES list.

So it looks like Bubinga (or at least 3 different variants of it) are now on the CITES endangered list. So does this mean the end for Tama Starclassics B/B and Full Bubinga lines? And other custom...
