Re: Drum shell finish care...

Wow. TWerner, that was an amazing bit of information there! Thanks for that! Outstanding. I figured that the finishes on most kits were actually a polyurethane. Most seem to have a fairly hard,...

Re: Tama vs Pearl overall?

I don't know how it's biased. Over the course of looking which drum set I wanted and from which company, I measured, looked, felt, and took pictures of tons of sets. No different than when I wanted...

Re: Timbre notes on my DW's..

I would bet it has something to do with resonance. I may be wrong, but I suppose it is possible that cross laminating could dampen the resonance or change the pitch or both. Though it may be good for...

Re: Tama vs Pearl overall?

My $.02. I did serious extensive research before I bought my acoustic kit. When I say serious, I mean measuring drums for roundness, checking seams/joints, bearing edges, and so on, of just about...

Re: The Bass Drum ELIMINATION thread....

That's what really gave me such an appreciation for acoustic drums. The understanding of them. The applied physics in a drum, and, the entire kit, and the interaction between us and the stick, and...

Re: Drum shell finish care...

See, that's kind of along the lines of what I was thinking. I was thinking about trying Meguire's Ultimate Quick Detailer, and Ultimate Quick Wax, basically along those same lines, safe for all...

Re: The Bass Drum ELIMINATION thread....

I just sold my electronic kit. I learned on it. Now I'm learning all over again. The spacing, height, and all of that, although I had the full size cymbal pads. There always seemed to be something...

Re: The Bass Drum ELIMINATION thread....

Lol! Oh Larry, not even and 18"? Really? Mine thumps pretty darn good. It is 1 ply (2 mm) thicker. I do love my 22" and I can't wait to get my 24", but I think some of the 18" and 20" out there...

Re: The Bass Drum ELIMINATION thread....

Ha! That's an awesome memory!

Silverfox, that's exactly what I was getting at! The possibilities are great! So many different configurations!

Re: Drum shell finish care...

I do use a couple of flat sheets I bought just for using as a cover, and will remain chemical free (no softeners and hypoallergenic detergent). I hadn't actually thought of using Pledge, but I'm...

Drum shell finish care...

So I have noticed there are a lot of different products out there for shining/cleaning your shell's finish. I'm sure many work, and many aren't what they're cracked up to be, and I'm sure there is a...

Re: The Bass Drum ELIMINATION thread....

I think the only issue you may have to play with is head selection. Remember, a bass drum in a kit is typically 1-2 mm thicker than the rest of the kit. This is obviously to help with durability, but...

Re: Yamaha Recording Custom

Seeing that color makes me almost ill. I was waiting for a check in the mail, and had my heart set on the Stage Customs in Sapphire Blue which is very similar to the Deep Blue. By the time it got...

Re: I'd like to know your thoughts!!! Help me out

I wouldn't say acrylic drums are a fad. They have been around a long, long time, and there are probably more companies making them now than ever. They do serve a purpose. You can get them in any...

Re: Yamaha Recording Custom

Unfortunately, Yamaha doesn't do much custom anything. This is what we make, buy it or don't. If you are going to get a mismatched kit, you're likely going to take a huge hit if you ever sell it. I...

Re: Anything wrong with learning...trumpet?

I played trumpet for 4 years in grade school. It's a pretty easy instrument to learn. Especially the basics, which seems to be what you're looking for. A lot of stuff you kind of pick up along the...

Re: Top 5 Metal Snares

I don't know about top 5, but my all time favorite is the Yamaha Paul Leim, followed by the Steve Gadd and Akira Jimbo, then the Tama Kenny Aronoff. There are so many good signature snares out there....

Re: Chrome peeling: re-chrome it, wrap it, or leave it alone?

I agree about the wrap. It's not that it can't be done, but should it? I wouldn't on a metal drum,although I really can't stand wraps to begin with. To me they defeat the point of the drum. I would...

Re: Chrome peeling: re-chrome it, wrap it, or leave it alone?

Larry, you still crack me up. IMHO, I would go get her a make over. To re-chrome something especially that size shouldn't be all that bad price wise. The biggest issue with price would more depend...
