Re: New Guru "Tour" series kits - details here first :)

All floor toms are 14" deep, even the 18". The reasons are very simple, & it's just another example of the focus of this kit range, & much of the hidden thinking behind the design. We find there's...

Re: New Guru "Tour" series kits - details here first :)

Thanks Bill. Yes, for us, these are very generic looking drums. Fairly standard everything, & non of the usual Guru signatures such as segmented bass drum hoops (although they are an option on this...

Re: Revolutionary cymbal choking technique ;)

My 24" paper thin china carries the same reputation :)

They do seem quite comfortable, which is nice after only two rehearsals, & given it's a solo project plus backing musicians situation :)

Re: A rear line day - mini report.

Yes, it's a great gig, & a nice size crowd to play to too. Most are more consumed with the bikes than watching the bands though. We had a good slot, & held a good audience though :)

I know, I...

Re: Revolutionary cymbal choking technique ;)

Thanks Doc. I don't have anything really. It's only the 3rd rehearsal this coming Friday, so it's all pretty new & disjointed right now. Weird material, really difficult to settle any groove due...

Re: A rear line day - mini report.

So true Grea, but all part of the marketing approach. Mass Artist sponsorship & back line industry saturation has proven to be very successful. A very good move :)

Re: New Guru "Tour" series kits - details here first :)

Thank you, but recording will be some way away. The studio we use is fairly booked up :(

We could Mike, but not for now at least. Maybe lacquer, but nothing beyond that. I guess it's just not...

Re: A rear line day - mini report.

So would I ;)

Heads were fine, if not a little scrubbed. They'd already done a fair bit of work though. Those heads on the Premier kits were just unbelievable!

Thing is, DW's marketing has...

Re: New Guru "Tour" series kits - details here first :)

Not long now :)

We offer up to 26" in all series - 28" if you ask nicely ;)

An honest capture session is in the pipeline, but won't be for a while yet :(

Sepele is the next build, along with...

A rear line day - mini report.

Yesterday, I was booked to play the "Hoggin the Bridge" event at Chepstow racecourse with "Fired Up", but also to provide rear line drums for the event. It's a fairly big rally (3 - 4,000...

Re: Revolutionary cymbal choking technique ;)

Yes, I very much picked up on that, & it felt good :) Still struggling on this one though, but I'll get there.

That's a huge huge deal right there! Wow, what a great feeling (especially if you have a strong practice regime (ahem :(

Re: Tigerwood - Grrrrrrrrr :)

It's all of those elements combined. Crutially, the differences in timber species are enhanced/more apparent because of the sum of the other design elements.

As an example, I have tiger wood &...

Re: Tigerwood - Grrrrrrrrr :)

Thank you :)

Thanks Jeff :) Actually, by default, those pictures of the undrilled shells amply demonstrate three approaches to stave shell construction. The tiger wood is an In-Tense series thin...

Re: Revolutionary cymbal choking technique ;)

Indeed :)

Yes, errand headstocks are to be discouraged, although in most cases, it's the guitar that comes off worse :)

Ok, you got me Ian. Not revolutionary at all, just dug up!

Genuinely,...

Re: Member leading other members on in a series of misleading questions in threads.

Yes, lying/exaggerating is just so lame, & most unnecessary :(

Re: Revolutionary cymbal choking technique ;)

:) In something compact like a trio, getting the other two players to choke your cymbals at the end of a song works well as a bit of stage show IMO.

Yeah, that 24" paper thin china is a choke...

Re: Member leading other members on in a series of misleading questions in threads.

Yes, you are a "goo dun" Wombat, but don't get consumed by the trivial. Having your time wasted is annoying, but it's to be expected. It annoys me too, so I'm with you on this, but park it &...

Re: Tigerwood - Grrrrrrrrr :)

Tuning range is vast, just the same as all In-Tense thin shell snares of which they share the same DNA. Yes, Goncalo Alves is a hardwood, but tonally a world away from oak. It has a palate much...
