Re: DW owners-do you tune to the "stamped" note?

I don't see the point in tuning to the shell note.
Once you put the hardware on it and the heads then it becomes a system with a different resonant frequency anyway.

I tune snares up and...

Re: Ludwig Supraphonic - 5" or 6.5" depth?

I have both, like a lot of people.
I am going to go against the grain and say get the 5" first.

I love the 6.5" but it is a big snare even in situations where you don't want a big snare.
In my...

Re: Solid Shell Snare Drum Owner's, help me out.

I've swapped my main gigging snare from an LM402 to a DW BNOB and now a DW Super Solid.

The Super Solid cuts through differently- there is a lot of attack, a moderate amount of woody body but it...

Re: What drum trends do you NOT miss?

1. The Hagar-era Van Halen bass drum sound- (eg Dreams) sounds like a wet tennis ball being bounced against a wall. Bass drum sounds generally not meshing with the rest of the kit.
2. Piccolo snare...

Re: The Cheap Snare Thread

I paid 150 for a used Ludwig LM400.
I had to replace the strainer and the heads but otherwise it has been amazingly good value.

Re: Round vs. Saddle throne?

Round for me.
And as small as possible.

I find tractors/saddles get in the way.

Re: Anyone play huge drums?

Big drums come from a time where PA's could only really deal with vocals.

If I had a road crew then I'd entertain it because it sure looks cool.
I never go any larger than 24" BD because I have...

Re: Anika switches to Tama

Plenty of people do.

These conversations go on all over the place.
On bass forums you'll see people ripping into Stu Hamm or Victor Wooten for the 'technique over emotion' playing.

Re: Best way to clean shells with matte finish

When I do a satin (matt) finish on my guitars I do so with some beeswax rubbed in with Liberon 0000 steel wool.
I can't say that this will be suitable in this instance...

Re: Anyone ever go from a 22" to a 24" kick?

I went from a Gretsch 24" to a DW 22".
The DW sounds bigger with the same heads.

Re: Will a 20" DW kick make me happy

I wouldn't worry about trying it unmuffled if the material doesn't suit that sound.

Will a 20" sound bigger than an 18"?
Yes, it will but only you can...

Re: I Need Help Choosing a Second Kit

Any of them would be ok.

I reckon the Yamaha is the one to go for.
I have a Stage custom as my share gigging kit and it punched way about its weight.
