Re: Current drum trends you wish would go away

Why so bitter man? I'm sure you're not the only one who's got the market cornered on things that make sense. If you're a badass player, make due on what you have to use, or go home. Somebody did a...

Re: Vintage Pearl Drums!

Funny thing is, I did. This guy had two Ludwig hoops for sale for $55 with only $25 for shipping. When I bought them, the next day he gave me a refund because he couldn’t ship them for less than...

Re: Vintage Pearl Drums!

Yeah, $70 a hoop isn’t bad. But the size of the box means it also costs an additional $73 for shipping. So $210+......not sure I wanna spend that.

Also finally tried playing the kit the other...

Re: Gretsch Flavor

I saw that kit on Instagram. Beautiful! When are you receiving it? You deserve it!

Re: Vintage Pearl Drums!

I was looking around and discovered that Drumfoundry.com will custom make hoops and cut an inlay to fit my existing inlays. I need to contact them on how long it would take, and then consider if...

Re: What makes....

I thought it was the predominant triplet feel in swing music that made it swing. The reason you call it rock n roll is because you have a straight 8th feel going (the rock) grinding against the...

A re-statement of the obvious

Just wanted to put this out there, but this forum seems to be the anomaly on the internet. Everyone here is nice to each other, or if disagreements come up, they are worked through. There's no...

Re: Struggles of Short Drummer and 5-Piece with Offset Toms

I say just set them up regular, two on the bass drum and get into the stretch. Like Said, I'm 5' 00", and I'm playing this: a 14x24 bass drum with 9x13 and 10x14 mounted on top. If I can do it, you...

Re: Vintage Pearl Drums!

OK I'll prove it when I open the bass drum again. Pearl clearly identified either "wood-fiberglass" or "maple shell" on their kits from those days. And this says "maple shell". When I inspected...

Re: Vintage Pearl Drums!

Nope, these are straight maple shells. No fiberglass. This coincides with my research that in one catalog in the 70s, they sold maple drums, but after that, it was all wood-fiberglass until the...

Re: Vintage Pearl Drums!

I’m debating on the hoops. I just want to be able to transfer the white marine pearl strips to the new wood hoops and will be a considerable investment. Let me sock away some pennies.

But the...

Re: Vintage Pearl Drums!

Yeah. The job of drumming hasn’t changed for me - I can groove on anything. If I don’t have to worry about mucking up the finish, that’s even better ;)

Re: Vintage Pearl Drums!

Yeah, once those red Yamahas are gone, I'll be down to this kit and the Gretsch ones. The others have new homes.

Vintage Pearl Drums!

I'm a vintage guy - and I think this is my problem with being associated with Pearl Drums. New stuff doesn't really speak to me that well. OTOH, some of my favorite kits have been the various 1970s...

Re: Interesting Observation Regarding Drum Quality and Sound Preferences

Me.

Looking at my track record, every time I try brand spanking new kits, I always return to vintage tones. Every time I do something memorable, it's on a vintage kit. My last Ludwig was from...

Re: How much time till single stroke competency?

Dude, you think Shaun White just started and was great? It takes years. It could take a lifetime. All you can do is keep plugging away (provided you're doing it right) and inching forward. You...

Re: Anyone just play drums for themselves only?

Everyone must choose for themselves what they like to do, and if you don't want to play in public, there's nothing wrong with that.

OTOH, I find I push myself to have better ears, better hands,...

Re: Looking for Jazz Drum Set

Oh I heard that word “specialize”. I sometimes equate that to “I don’t get to work as much as I want”.

Re: Looking for Jazz Drum Set

Get a 13/16/22 configuration in any mid-level kit and make the kids learn how to play anything on it. You don’t provide horns just made for jazz, do you? Can you only have a piano that just plays...
