Re: Hanging Toms vs. Floor Toms - Yamaha Hexrack

Personally, I had issues with my Pearl Masters 15"x14" getting choked using an OptiMount. I had it drilled to Pearl factory spec and slapped some of their Air Suspension legs on and couldn't be...

Re: Right arm occasionally falling asleep after playing for a bit...

Frost, trust me, my technique was the first thing I looked at when this happened. I'm just playing like I always do, elbows, wrists, and fingers as loose as they should be. I know better than to ask...

Right arm occasionally falling asleep after playing for a bit...

Has this happened to anyone else? It's kind of making me nervous. It doesn't happen every time I play or anything, but when it does, it's a real pain in the ass.

Re: HELLPPP

I heard Pearl say at some point in time that the wood isn't quite the same. It's either from a different source and/or location, or from left over plies that didn't make the cut for Masters, similar...

Re: HELLPPP

Actually, they aren't quite up to Masters specifications, at least according to Pearl. Not dissing them, still lovely drums, especially for the asking price.
I don't understand why Pearl is...

Re: A new snare.

Ian's signature is essentially a supraphonic ripoff. He always uses a supraphonic 14x6.5, despite having his own Pearl signature drum. I have both the 14x5.5 and the 14x6.5 supraphonics, and to be...

Re: How much do you think my drums are worth?

No doubt, you can't go wrong making that big of a profit on a now used kit. I say you'd be hard pressed to find someone who would pay you more for it.

Re: Making a Bass drum snappy

Lars said in an interview once that the silver dollar thing is what he did, but he also said it's really bad for your heads. Just thought I would give you a heads up there. My kicks sound pretty...

Re: Ok I'm Back With ANOTHER One Of These Threads...

I agree with the statements you said about pedals and a hi hat stand Drew, but I must disagree on the throne. If your thinking about how bad your ass hurts, you're not focused on playing. A...

Re: DW Drums: Versatile Sizes?

I have a 14x11 rack tom and I think it's great. If you're going for a Bonham feel, you can't go wrong with it. I think a lot of people are missing out by using smaller sizes exclusively.

Re: Pearl Reference, Tama StarClassic Bubinga, or DW Collector Maple?

I only kinda wanted two out of seven toms to be shallow, so it's not like I want hyperdrive specs all around. It's no big deal if they aren't shallow though, just something I would do if available.

Re: Pearl Reference, Tama StarClassic Bubinga, or DW Collector Maple?

Yeah, I actually read that same post before, which is why I raised the question. I wasn't considering DW anymore anyway, and especially not after that. Thanks anyway for the info though.

Re: Well, I'm now the owner of a 1967 Supraphonic...

I was planning on it, but for now I kind of like the way it looks. You know the drum has been around awhile when you look at it.

Re: Pearl Reference, Tama StarClassic Bubinga, or DW Collector Maple?

Sonor is just way expensive. If I bought Ludwig I'd save about 3 grand over Reference or StarClassic, that's why I question it. With drums, most of the time you get what you pay for, save for a few...

Re: What happened to larger drums?

It's been explained to me before that because of modern microphone technology, there's no need for big drums. I simply smiled and turned away.

Re: Best Complete Set. ($1000 - $1500)

Pearl Masters MCX series are 6 ply maple drums and you can get a 5 piece shell pack for $1500. They're quality drums man, check them out too.

Re: Pearl Reference, Tama StarClassic Bubinga, or DW Collector Maple?

Yeah I know. The maple starclassics aren't that thick, so I was just comparing it to that. I assume Tama use about the same ply thickness with maple and bubinga.

Re: Pearl Reference, Tama StarClassic Bubinga, or DW Collector Maple?

exactly, that's why I started the thread, so I could listen to other peoples' real experiences. Just to add to the starclassics being thin thing, the bubinga version is actually 9 plies thick, which...

Re: Pearl Reference, Tama StarClassic Bubinga, or DW Collector Maple?

haha, it's cool man, the statement was half hearted. Though he does catch a lot of shit, undeserved in my opinion. He might very well be the most hated drummer by drummers.

I do plan on trying to...

Re: DDrum Defiant or Tama Rockstar (Double bassdrum kits)

It's badass, that's what there is to gain. I don't like the rebound effect of a double pedal on one head personally either. Having a second kick has at the very least a slightly different feel.

Re: DDrum Defiant or Tama Rockstar (Double bassdrum kits)

Tama wins. You get some birch in your shells, so they've almost gotta sound better, and you get more shells, for only $120 more. You can't go wrong with the Tamas here.

There's just nothing like a good Lars bash for some people. It's too bad.
