Re: pdp Concept Wood Hoop kit NAMM 2015

My face is so contorted in disgust I look like the damn Grinch right now.

Re: Most resonant / warm drums?

My advice to you, as well as many others' preemptive advice to you: buy used. You can find a lot of used pro level kits for that kind of dosh. There's a Gretsch Renown 10/12/14/20 kit on eBay right...

Re: The 2 products that struck me at NAMM

Soultone also have the DC drums all over their promotional videos. DC's website says their drums are 5 plies, no mention of thickness... tbh that says "Keller" to me. It is nice that they had...

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

i'm dying

Anyways, he original kit looks nice despite being different finishes! I think it's mainly because the bass drum is the only one that's not a neutral color so it doesn't give one the...

Re: NAMM 2015 - Saturn V - I need info! (Excited)

In general terms, the mega super duper patented Mapex edge (which is just a half roundover as far as I know) reduces head sustain a little (which is only really audible close to the drum) and...

Re: NAMM 2015 - New Mapex Snares??

Well, I can tell you that my Wraith is already preordered ;)

There's plenty of video of the Wraith, for example these two (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fsqz-cwwSO8) videos...

Re: Thoughts on the S-hoop drum hoop?

Haven't tried the Yamahas BUT I have tried Pearl's "Fat Tone" hoops and S-Hoops on the same snares. The Pearls are basically in between an S-Hoop and a typical triple flange, rimshots sound a little...

Re: NAMM 2015 - what do you expect to see?

It certainly will play the visual part of its character... can't say I know many metal players who are familiar with Premier and have the surely exorbitant dosh to buy that thing, though.

Re: NAMM 2015 - what do you expect to see?

That "Beast" snare looks, uhhhhh... Interesting?

I'm very excited to get the Halpern signature snare. Sounds great IMO.

I know Meinl is introducing the "Byzance Dual" cymbals as a regular line,...

Re: 10" 16" 22" Setup?


I recommend this- I have 10-12-15 and, when set up as a four piece, both 10-15 and 12-15 pairings work. However the 10" does stand out a lot and kind of draws attention to itself, the...

Re: THE CLASSIFIEDS - For Sale / Wanted

I've got 5 cymbals up on my eBay (http://www.ebay.com/sch/kellykalka/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=), all starting around $100. They consist of some 14" Saluda Decadence/Glory hats, a modded 17"...

Re: Zildjian FX

The As and FX series are certainly a step up. I think the A Custom splashes sound quite fine, as well as the FX Oriental splashes. However I think the Oriental chinas sound like absolute hot garbage,...

Re: Metal drum kit? (shell material, not music :)

Hasn't Q Drums made a few brass or copper kits as well?

I thought the copper in that video sounded quite alright. I guess it depends on what you want out of the kit!

Re: Heavy music, where did the ride go?

Not at all IMO. They will never sound interchangeable with a ride bell to me... though they're not a bad effect in their own right.

Re: How to place air vents on my 3 ply African Mahogany Shells

They're like $5 more, at least where I am, so I suppose the Pearl feet are also a solution (I use them, anyways). Nothing competing with the Little Booty Shakers other than the Gauger FlexFrame which...

Re: Heavy music, where did the ride go?

I think the ride cymbal just isn't necessary in some of these bands with their typical part writing. There are plenty of modern metal players that do use rides, but y'know, the bow of a ride is...

Re: Which Snare Wires to Get

Re: How to place air vents on my 3 ply African Mahogany Shells

As Les mentioned, the Booty Shakers (real name) might do you good here for isolating your floor tom from the ground (IMO a necessity). They also having "Little Booty Shakers" which will let you put...

Re: Who uses Moongel?

I always lose my gels... I use a DrumClip on my snare now, easy to deal with and can stay on forever. I'll use tape on the toms whenever I need it (I rarely do though).

Re: Do Youtube Drum Covers Influence What/How You Play?

Inspiring words from Watso! I agree wholeheartedly, slowing down the playback speed and really digging into a well-crafted drum part is often a great exercise. Plus, there's nothing to lose from...

Re: Thrash Drumming HiHat/Ride Speed
