Re: Dw collectors purple heart

That's awesome. I don't know why I'm such a moron but I've spend hundreds of $$$ on snares and equipment from everyone but DW, yet I find their sound to be what I'm after. I think I just get...

Re: How many trigger your drums live?

Same here! Never triggered/layered but I do play either a full Roland V-drums kit or with my acoustic, use a SPD-30 Octapad for the sfx claps etc.

Re: One Drum Set Vs Several Drum Sets?

Re: GC having a 20% off sale

After being on a TAMA kick lately with their drums and hardware, which are all phenomenal by the way, I decided to pickup the DW 6000 Ultralight hardware pack - I figure I'll use these flat based...

Re: To rack or not to rack?

Chalk me up to one of them (save for my Roland V-drums kit)!

It largely depends on how many toms, cymbals, and accessories you bring to the gig. I use a 4-piece kit with 2 crashes, ride, HH, and...

Re: Can a very (!) cheap drumset sound ok..?

Yep, sure can!

I've recorded 4 of my original band's albums on a beat-up Maxxim (or might be CB) drum kit my one guitarist has with an Acrolite snare. All Evans heads on them and they sound...

Where can one find/buy that wall mount? It looks like a really skinny kick drum! Love it.

Re: Why the same songs, when so many to choose from?

Yep, that's pretty much how we do it... the band's been around for about 15 years, with me drumming for 10 of it so far. We even have "groupies" (really just common friends lol) that love to see us...

Re: 24x14 vs 22x16 - Can't Decide!

Like others, I have played all kinds of sized kicks, and I have a soft spot for 22x16 but more if I had drum techs or for home studio. For all my gigs nowadays I have bought into the 14" depth...

Re: Jeff Porcaro on Studio / Sound Engineers

No doubt they were - in the video Jeff says he hates them because they have no dynamics and the sounds are cheesy. Compared to today, things like the Roland TD-50 and Pearl Mimic Pro are either real...

Re: Jeff Porcaro on Studio / Sound Engineers

Yea, I've watched that entire video at least 10 times. Great information that survives to today! The only thing I'd wonder if Jeff was still alive today, would be his opinion on electronic drums...

Re: Anyone else buy this limited Tama kit?

Nice finish! I don't have that limited run but I recently bought a display model of their 2016 Limited Edition B/B 3-pc kit in Electron Blue. It has like a ivory racing stripe in it. The B/B are a...

Re: How does Ludwig Keep Prices down?

Yea, and for the life of me the name of the store escapes me at the moment. I had read about it in a lengthy article about Neil's history with his kits. I think it was some kind of "Five Star" drum...

Re: Are drummers some of the most sexy people?

Re: New Pearl Snare!

Great wrap! I heard decent things about those snare drums.

In their low to mid ranges, Pearl makes well-built shells even of the Chinese variety. Where possible I use Pearl drums as a base for...

Re: My favorite sizes are not popular in a regular set

I have a similar problem - I like 22x14 kicks with 12x8 and 14x14 toms but usually 22" kicks are 16 or 18 deep and with 16" toms.... at least the standard configs out there... a la carte or custom...

Re: GOT FREE stuff from Evans/D'Addario! Player's Circle rewards

Nice stuff. I use the EQ Pad in every kick drum I own; it provides just enough muffling and purpose.

The Activegrips are real nice. I had a pair of Portnoy and Redmond signatures and they lasted...
