Re: My 1st drum kit - PDP CX Series. Advice for an old newbie??

Yeah, it will boot the singer off the stage if you lay into it. I got a great clearance deal on the kit when when the CX series was being discontinued. The 10" was stupid expensive in comparison but...

Re: My 1st drum kit - PDP CX Series. Advice for an old newbie??

No, it was a factory 14x12 floor tom. Its a CXR kit that came with a 24" bass drum and a 1 up 2 down setup

Re: My 1st drum kit - PDP CX Series. Advice for an old newbie??

Thanks! Its a factory wrap. Its technically a CXR kit that came 24/16/14/12 with a 14x6 snare. I purchased a matching 10" tom to make it a 6pc.

Re: tuning issues with new kit, advise needed

Those measurements are really pretty good. No drum I have ever measured is perfect. Are they the same on the reso side? Have you measured the heads for roundness as well?

11 3/4 is pretty...

Re: tuning issues with new kit, advise needed

Its possible. I have seen this happen on my older CX kit from PDP which uses the same mounting system.

I think this is a head and tuning issue though. When I started using a tunebot it really...

Re: tuning issues with new kit, advise needed

Diplomats are not etched. They are just a clear 7mil mylar head

Re: tuning issues with new kit, advise needed

The additional mass of the Ambassador should actually help with sustain. Diplomats will have more overtones though that can be very pleasing when tuned well

Re: tuning issues with new kit, advise needed

I have found with my Concept Maple's that you need single ply batters to get to the higher end of its tuning range. I use clear ambassadors top and bottom currently and tune both heads to the same...

Re: Peter Erskine is on the move... again

He made it pretty clear when he switched to Tama that he was 60 and was going to play what he wanted and not apologize for it.

They are not saying specifically what he is endorsing though.

Re: Drum suspension systems

That still happens big time even with iso mounts. I sure as hell have to gate enough sympathetic vibration from the toms out my mixes to prove that beyond debate

Re: Drum suspension systems

They would only come supplied with it if there were demand for them. MFG's started including them because a tremendous number of people were buying the RIMS system because it works.

Re: Drum suspension systems

Sing is a relative term. "Sing" by 1960's standards is a different thing than it is today. I have spent the endless hours pre RIMS finding the right combo of variables to get a reasonable sound out...

Re: Drum suspension systems

This..

Generally speaking new is not necessarily better, but we should always reserve the right to get smarter. In this case, while not necessary, I think the suspension mounts are just flat out...

Re: "Recording Heavy Drums" tutorial by Glenn Fricker

I had recorded for years with a 3 Mic set up that benefited from a tightly configured kit so that's what I did. I expanded and adjusted accordingly. I have had my own recording space for years. I...

Re: "Recording Heavy Drums" tutorial by Glenn Fricker

The music in that link that i had time to listen to isn't really metal by modern definitions. Its a lot closer to Black Sabbath than modern metal.

Not my taste but, these are examples of modern...

Re: "Recording Heavy Drums" tutorial by Glenn Fricker

In the context of "metal" that we are discussing though, the idea of distant / minimal micing etc are just not an option. They are not capable of achieving the sounds of the genre. You actually look...

Re: "Recording Heavy Drums" tutorial by Glenn Fricker

I have to disagree with this. When I upgraded my room to accommodate more inputs I had to raise the cymbals up over a foot to make room for tom mics. The hats went up 3-4 inches and the rided got...
