Re: Intermediate drum set advice

20" K Ride
Zildjian 17" A Brilliant crash
Zildjian 17" K Medium thin dark crash
14" New Beats

All of them used. For years, they hovered...

Re: There's no way David would be this shameless, but I will ;)

Thanks for sharing this. I spent some time after the chitlins went to bed last night watching these videos. Sometimes I need reminding the best sounding fills/licks/grooves are often "simple...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I like cymbal logos and lettering!!!.......phewww, there I said it. I've even redrawn the Zildjian logo on my old new beats. it doesn't look half bad either. And yes, I know logos don't make them...

Re: Need forum wisdom (fusion "standards")

I would think Weckl needs to be in that list.

Re: What people will pay

I've been casually seeking a 16" for my PDP M5 kit. They are horribly and disproportionately overpriced.

Re: Drummer Metronome

I second the app solution. There's really no need to buy a metronome these days. So many free apps and programs you get get to do that for you.

Re: Carter Beauford

It's probably because 80% of his drumming career has been with one band. Just not as much exposure as some guys like Porcaro, Weckl, Garibaldi and Gadd. In my opinion, Carter is just as good, if...

Re: PDP Concept Maple vs. DW Design Series

I will admit, I've never laid a stick on a dw kit outside of a drum store but I own a PDP M5 ( similar to the x7) and I think it sounds great.

Re: Ludwig Snare (not supraphonic, not an Acrolite)?

Thanks Steve. Ya, the "snare chord" on there is my janky attempt at replacing an even jankier snare chord (yellow string on one side and wire on the other) that was on it when I got it. The white...

Re: The matching snare

A snare is like a lens on a professional camera. It's something you want to be able to switch out depending on the situation. It doesn't have to match the toms and bass.

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Very nice. I was on the look out for one of those myself when I stumbled across this on craigslist for VERY cheap.

My new Ludwig 400 Supraphonic. (early 70's)...

Re: The matching snare

When I got my PDP M5 kit it came without the snare. For a while I was searching around for the matching snare to complete the kit. After a while I came to the realization that it's not that...

Re: Ludwig Snare (not supraphonic, not an Acrolite)?

Ah, that's why it looks different. Cool.

I may try tuning my reso down a bit and see if I still like the sound.

@Kamak, you're probably right. My other snare is a 13" so right now I don't...

Re: Ludwig Snare (not supraphonic, not an Acrolite)?

The collar is pretty close to the bearing edge. The last pic shows what I'm talking about best. Your hoop looks different than mine. Is it original with your supra?

Re: Ludwig Snare (not supraphonic, not an Acrolite)?

Here's a pic of my reso side. May be hard to tell from these pics but see how the rim is almost flush with the reso head? I wasn't straining to get it this tight. Does it look like I've cranked it...

I don't have it in front of me now but I believe it does have a diplomat on it.

Re: Ludwig Snare (not supraphonic, not an Acrolite)?

I'll get a pic up tonight. The channel gap is pretty small. I sort of had to thread the strings through. The weird thing is that the reso head feels about as tight as most other resos I've tuned. ...

I'm with you on that. I've been debating over what my next ride will be for about a year. I just can't seem to feel confident enough in that choice to pull the trigger. I just don't take those...

Re: Ludwig Snare (not supraphonic, not an Acrolite)?

Thanks Steve. Really looking forward to laying into it. Haven't had much time in the past few days. One question regarding tuning, I like a pretty tight reso head but when I looked at my reso side...

Re: TOM TUNING

Not always that simple but to answer briefly, yes on both accounts. I usually tune my top and bottom head the same. Then, if I think I'm getting too much resonance, I start brining the bottom head...
