Re: Removing metal washers from tension rods

The nylon washers actually work better this way IMO.

Don't cut the metal washers off, not being able to go over the threads is a cool little touch that prevents one from loosing them.

Re: What kind of drum is ? does this anyone know ?

Tom probably most likely SLINGERLAND with the lugs, holes, lug screws and the delaminating re ring.

SLINGERLAND claws and T-rods and lugs on kick in pic #1. Inside could've been painted on kick...

Re: New - official Guru In-Tense video starring David Floegel!

The cost from a practical standpoint could be viewed as an investment. Like any investment, there's a risk. Should GURU 'make it' so to speak as a drum co, the investment may hold over time.

Re: Ludwig's new Signet 105 drum line!

You say 2, someone else says 3... WTH, just make them adjustable, its a $1000 drum kit.

Pretty sure LUDWIG will see those BD spurs as a feature easily improved upon.

Re: Ludwig's new Signet 105 drum line!

Seems fair, MR probably looking at the price first (like everyone else) 500-$1000 can easily be considered entry level. The drumming community has to date been conditioned to view hybrid composite...

Re: New Pearl Export?

You'd rather have them something like solid bubinga huh? We understand.

If we read the fine print tho, EXPORTS are 'premium plies of wood strategically arranged to maximize frequency response'. ...

Re: New - official Guru In-Tense video starring David Floegel!

Already knew theses were going to sound good. Had this been a reject kit it would've ended up kindling, not filmed and shown, can't fool us anymore Andy.

Re: Pearl Masters to DW Collectors?

Check out PDP CONCEPT MAPLE, they're not considered 'legit' DW drums by some DW endorsers, but the sound for money factor is high.
