Re: Ludwig bass mounts

The new rail mounted tom holder is taller than the rail mount on vintage drums. I would go with mounting the toms on stands aside of the BD on a kit with those sizes.
The New Atlas Arch mount is...

Re: Club Date SE snare...forgot how awesome it is.

I also use a metal snare with my CD kit. I have a BB with black cast hoops that I really fancy.
It is a nice change to break out the wooden snare on occasion.

Re: Club Date SE snare...forgot how awesome it is.

Yes, the snare is cherry and gum wood with birch re-rings and 2.3mm hoops. The edges are rounded.
These drums produce warm tones. They are much like the drums of the 50's and 60's.

Re: Club Date SE snare...forgot how awesome it is.

I have never owned a snare drum that was deeper than 5.5". I have been thinking about buying one lately though.

Re: Snare Cord - What Knot?

I was just thinking, Been playing since 1969 and I have never owned a snare drum that had a throw that required a knotted cord.

Re: Club Date SE snare...forgot how awesome it is.

I own a CDSE kit with a matching 5 x14 snare. I agree, It is great sounding! It plays just as well as snare drums that cost twice as much. If you want a woody vintage snare sound for a reasonable...

Re: Drums suck!

I found that I needed to add vent holes to the toms of my 65 Slingerland kit in order to tune the drums better for Jazz. The kit is in Jazz sizes. 18, 12, 14.
I found this by accident. The 12" tom...

Re: bass drum claws

Yes, you can use different claws. Tension rods are the same diameter on almost all kits. Drummers often buy different style claws for their bass drum because they want a different look..

Re: New Gretsch 3 ply Broadkaster line

You're welcome.
I just last week installed the new 302 Stickchopper hoops on my old Broadkaster kit and they really toned the drums up a lot. I played it tonight with my Jazz band for the first time...

Re: Advice on powered sub

Yea, an 18 is probably the way to go. A bass player friend just bought a really lightweight speaker cabinet. It is amazing how light speaker cabinets are today.

Re: Drumkit Muffling for Apartment Players

There is no way that you will be able to play in an apartment without conflict.
Even an E-kit will vibrate the floor when you run the double pedals.
If you are on the first floor with nobody living...

Re: Advice on powered sub

A 10" sub is a bit small for a bass drum on stage. I use a JBL 10" sub with my Fender Passport Pro 500 along with two Kustom 100 watt powered monitors for my home PA system for singers and keyboard...

Re: Stupid Invention

I love the way that the whole kit rolls side to side as her plays right and left.
I would be seasick after about ten minutes of playing.

Les, a puncture would certainly be inevitable.

Re: Stupid Invention

Being that you are the only one who responded to the thread in about 24 hours I would sat that the inflatable drum kit is a flop :)
I won't have one at my next party.

Re: offset kit configuration opinions?

It takes a while to get used to. I play a vintage Ludwig kit with a 12 and 13 left of the BD. After a few months of playing your right arm grows longer :)

Re: Pulled the trigger on a set of Gretsch New Classics!

I have been playing on and off since 1969. I am 58 years old now.
I just recently acquired my dream kits during the past few years.
The drums will come to you in time.

I trued the edges on a precision sanding table. Then I fine sanded them by hand. I did it properly. I didn't do a recut. There was no need to. There were some high spots that needed to be fixed....

Re: Pulled the trigger on a set of Gretsch New Classics!

Sorry to hear that. I feel your pain. Don't worry, you will get your kit someday soon.
Im sure that there is a valid reason for her asking you to cancel.
