Re: My new "Yes I can play" kit ;)

I really want a quick "try out" kit, and I like the idea. It seems like you could come up with a "care free", easy to move (and better sounding) kit cheaper than the currently marketed cocktail kits.

Re: Back to Oak

Sounds like a nice kit. I've always loved the sound of Yammies.
I have Tama, and I really like the "no through hole" BD tom mount.
But in reality, I think tuning makes more of a diff than the tom...

Re: Dual ride positioning

Thanks folks! That gives me some good ideas of things to try. I'll have to play with it a bit to find out what feels best to me. (@dennis - man, I love your collection of kits!)

Dual ride positioning

I picked up a second 20" ride for a high def ping, and more jazz sound, and I'd like to use both my rides, but I'm not sure how to position them. I'm kind of a right side and low ride guy, so this...

Re: Weckl's Big Announcement

I hope he isn't announcing the recall of my Sabian Dave Weckl signature series HHX Evolution cymbals.
I like then a lot.
If he moves to Paiste, he's dead to me. :)

Re: Home drum isolation booth

Get an e-kit and you won't be sorry. I've got a Yamaha DTX-550 that does the job nicely (although, it's still not like pounding on the a-kit, which I have to do frequently).

Re: Electronic drums

Yamaha DTX 5xx series is very nice, and sounds great. I got this DTX 550 for about 1500.
I really wanted a "mechanical" hi-hat, and the DTX snare is really nice. It is great for playing through...

Re: Jason Bonham

Here's one thing he's been doing.
I've got their first album and it's pretty good, but doesn't quite live up to the hype IMHO.
I hope the new one they are making is better.

Re: Start playing congas

I own congas and love them. I don't have great technique, but I can hit them and know some of the Latin rhythms. They are really fun to play, and some songs just beg for congas underneath. I'd...

Part of the kit for when it's needed. And it is needed.

Re: Drum set up - What's the matter with people?

Playing e-drums has made me appreciate a tight kit. The picture you posted is not what I would choose, but I certainly wouldn't call it dysfunctional or judge the player by it. It may be "just the...

Re: First pictures - Guru Origin series - Drummerworld exclusive!

The true test is "How do they sound?"
"In theory, reality and theory are the same. In reality, they are not".
I'd love to hear some sound clips. :)
