Re: Can't decide on a rack tom size for a jazz kit

A 10" in that position needs to be tensioned looser to reduce snare buzz, whereas the 12" can be tensioned just perfectly with minimal snare buzz. If you're using the kit to play jazz, you'll most...

Re: GRETSCH BROOKLYN mediocre bad quality?

I agree completely. I had the same experience with screws/bolts on a Gretsch USA Custom snare drum.

Re: Looking for help to ID Gretsch snare drum

I think you're right. Those things make good door stops.

Re: Why doesn't anyone make quieter drums?

Mezzo is Italian for "half" or "middle". Mezzo forte would be half as loud as forte. I wonder why they never uses "double" (or doppio) as a prefix to indicate twice as loud? Instead, they just repeat...

Re: Buying a Jazz Kit. Help Me.

Yeah, it's hard to find shallower bass drums these days. I prefer 16" for a 22" and 14" for anything smaller. The only problem with 14" depth is when you have the tom mount installed on the bass...

Re: Buying a Jazz Kit. Help Me.

I had that Gretsch kit briefly. It sounds okay, but nowhere near top quality (even with better heads). I would suggest it for someone's "rehearsal" set, but not for serious gigs or recordings. I got...

Best one I ever played was a Super Sensitive. Sold it 'cause replacing the wires was too expensive.

They'll make a 5 1/2" Supraphonic, but it will also be 14 1/2" in diameter.

Re: Are All Snare Drums Created Equal?

If they all had brand new heads, same snare wires, and were struck with the same stick by the same person, yes, they would sound exactly, or almost exactly, the same (in the same room).

Re: Trying out the Dunnett R4-L strainer

The problems people have with the P-85 are numerous, but I never had an issue with it. Some people have the problem where it loosens gradually, forcing you to constantly re-tighten the knob. Others...
