Re: What model of Mapex is this

Around the same time as the M series and Pro M Mapex had a series called QR that had some funky wraps. Honestly can't say if they even used that specific one, but the finishes I do remember were all...

Re: Ludwig badge help

It's legit. I remember seeing more pics from the other thread and it's a Classic Maple for sure. I believe the finish is called Flame Shadow.

Re: albums with missing drum kit elements

Peter Gabriel's third album has no cymbals of any kind at all. Peter specifically asked Phil Collins not to use any metal, which led him to play a lot busier on the tom toms to fill in the space. ...

Re: Pork pie Bob snare or Ludwig Supralite

I've not done a side by side but there are a few differences that could have an effect.

I think the Supralite has a thicker shell and hoops than the Yamaha, and it has 10 brass tube lugs instead...

Re: Pork pie Bob snare or Ludwig Supralite

It really comes down to whether you want a black brass or a steel shell. Construction and build quality is the same. In general steel is going to have more cut and the brass sounds more meaty.

I...

Re: Smaller toms these days?

I moved with the times and had a couple of kits with smaller toms, one a 10/12/14 and later 10/12/14/16.

On the first kit I ended up adding a 16 because I missed that voice, and it took some work...

Re: Ludwig Black Magic - Head and Tuning Recommendations

I have a Black Magic, with a Die Cast on the batter side.

I'm using a Aquarian Modern Vintage reverse dot on top with a Remo no collar clear Ambassador on the snare side. Sounds great. I tune...

Re: Probably getting my kick drum cut down - what size?

Here's another vote to have it cut down, and another vote for Precision Drum to do the work. I've had them do shell cut downs and bearing edge work on several kits and they've always done top notch...

Re: Ive got a weird thing thats bugging me. Shell depth

As heads stretch and get tensioned down more the hoops get lower.

Re: Pimp my Acrolite?

Pretty much everything about an S-Hoop is in between a triple flange and a die cast. The hoop is more rigid so rim shots feel more solid, they make a drum sound a bit more focused but they don't...

Re: Pimp my Acrolite?

I cannot recommend highly enough the Remo clear Ambassador (no collar) snare side head for Ludwig snares.

The 5" depth, rounded bearing edge, and the bowtie lug all contribute to an eventual...

Re: Tama Starclassic Birch/Walnut Review

I found the birch/walnut drums to have the sound I prefer; warm, woody, and a lot of sustain. The birch/bubinga drums were a lot more present and that strong attack was interesting at first listen,...

Re: 14x6.5 Yamaha Stage Custom steel snare drum.

The Stage Custom snare is a great drum, even at the regular price. $100 is a fantastic deal.

Re: Groove discussion

I think groove is about being together and sounding comfortable while doing it.

It isn't about simple or complex rhythms, or slow or fast tempo, though simple rhythms at a medium tempo tend to...

Re: replacement ludwig throw

Do you want to replace the P-85 because you "heard" it has problems, or because you're actually having a problem?

I'm one of the few people that has no problems with the P-85, and as long as you...

Re: aluminum DW or Ludwig snare?

Honestly, I'm not sure (even as a Ludwig fan) you're really going to hear much of a difference. Aluminum is a dry-sounding shell material, and I don't think the overall character of a 402 is going...

Re: I need your advice please

I'd use the gasket. If it was designed to use one the leg may not clear the bottom hoop without it.

Re: Buying/Tuning a Concert Snare Drum

The Puresound Concert wires mimic the dry cable snare sound very well. Grover also makes cable snares that attach to a standard throw off.

While there are several companies that make specific...

Re: Question about Mapex Saturn Pro 1988

If you can get a Saturn III (which is a fantastic set of drums) for the same price as these mystery drums I wouldn't give it a second thought. I think the Saturn III is the best era of Saturn drums...

Re: Ludwig Classic Maple mounting questions

If you want to avoid a snare stand for the small tom I'd go with the ATLAS mount and use a single tom holder to fly it off the cymbal stand as pictured above.

Re: Question about Mapex Saturn Pro 1988

I've also never seen a Mapex kit like that, and I don't Mapex existed in 1988.

I think maple/basswood is a good guess for shell construction. I think all Saturns were some combination of those...

Re: Notable and New at NAMM

I've never been put off by the look of the Pearl tom arms, but as a system they're faster to set up and much more stable than your typical L-arm.

Re: First Ludwig Snare

Well, with Ludwig you never know. In cases like this they often tend to use up their supply of an older part before switching over to the newer one. From what I've seen the whole switch from P-85...
