Re: Birch drums

Wildly unpopular choice, but if you can try a Premier Artist Birch.

Beautiful drums, sound amazing, dirt cheap.

I'm UK based, that may be why prices are so low...

Re: Mapex Saturn Pro?

I have a Saturn III which has isolated bass drum and floor tom spurs etc etc, and I don't find it overly heavy.

Yes, it's heavier than the M Birch it replaced, but I truly don't think the weight...

Re: Nicko McBrains Drum shop

I bought my saturn from there just before the rebrand. Craig, I think it was, the manager is a most excellent chap and I'd happily give them my business again. Quite what Nico McVain has added other...

Re: Need help to identify my black panther snare

Yes its a 5-year old thread BUT its an identical snare to mine.

Pretty sure it's not a stright Maple 5.5 as per the answer the OP seemed to accept; the throw-off and hardware colour aren't as per...

Re: Re-buying drum gear, biggest bang for smallest buck?

Just read somebody mentioning Premier Artist - these are great kits that go cheaply when they spring up. I'm in the UK and bought a birch 5-piece with cases, all hardware and some (admittedly dodgy)...

Re: Re-buying drum gear, biggest bang for smallest buck?

As far as value for money goes, you can't really beat Mapex. I play a Saturn, and before that had a M Birch, the range below the pro M.

I'd say the pro m is a good call, it has the little things...

Re: Where Do You Fit? - Poll

I'm a 2 - not much money at all, apart from the odd corporate gig. Mostly beer festivals and private functions for not much more than petrol money and free food/beer. Wouldn't have it any other way!

Re: Buying new snare but which one?

Mapex Armory Sabre (maple /walnut shell) is a great all-rounder, bought one for my son and he prefers it to my black panther maple. It is also available as the Peacemaker in a different finish. Same...

Re: Left-footed/Right Handed Hell

I'm left footed right handed but am totally self taught and taught myself to play on a left handed setup before realising there WAS such a thing as a left handed / right handed kit setup.

Re: How many drum kits have you owned?

Love this thread! I myself have had 7 kits, only 2 of which I have liked and would keep. Glad to see I'm not the only one with a history of dodgy kits...

Re: I think I almost bit on an EBAY scam

Yup, I started a thread on this scam q week or so ago. Seems he or she hijacks someone's account and uses that.

I guess it's hard to stop when they keep hacking other people's accounts. Those...

Re: What should I look in a used kit?

Agree with analysis paralysis and taking on board the views of people here.

I started a 'renown or saturn' thread couple of weeks ago. General opinion was both are good, go with your gut. So I...

Re: mixing wood?

Totally get this. I myself love the attack of birch rack toms, but prefer a maple bass drum.

If I could afford it, I'd get a kit made up like that but for some reason I'd really struggle to mix...

Re: Snare vent hole position- marketing?

Yeah, I'm a lefty and those hanging toms always have a lefty badge plonked on the other side so I can advertise their wares

Mapex snare - Peacemaker vs Sabre

Looking for a snare for my son, quite like the look of these with a hybrid maple /walnut shell (sound familiar?!).

Apart from the finish, is there any difference? Both are the same wood, 7-plies...

Re: What should I look in a used kit?

My advice is this: don't rush into it. Get to know your local market. Watch ebay/local stores etc etc without buying. Watch the prices, see what goes for what. Eventually you will spot the bargains -...
