I think a lot of the focus on what wood is being used came from various manufacturers getting into the market and trying to convince people that their Keller maple shells were better than the next...

Re: Yamaha Live Custom Series 2013

If they are replacing the Oak Customs I'd best get a few more ordered before they go the way of the Beech Customs.


Time to send out a few emails.

Re: Yamaha Beech Customs - diamond badge, heads/tuning advice

I have older Beech Customs and use Evans G2 coated batter with G1 clear reso on the toms, stock Yamaha reso on the bass with an Aquarian Superkick II bass head.

Sadly, there are far too many of these 'religious groups' around, all over the World in many countries and societies.

Re: the role of bad to make good in music

Ok, I'll play the research websites game with a few of my own. I haven't seen nationmaster.com before though; I'll give it a fair perusal.

Re: Non standard snare drum depths - issue?

Cases shouldn't really be a problem, 14x5.75, get a 14x6.5 case or bag. I keep my 13x7 Black Panther in a 14x8 case inside the bag the drum came in.


Sizes; you aren't the first company to do it....

Re: What has been your best drum score?

Canopus HS-1465-10PH for $65. Played it for a fortnight and received an offer I couldn't refuse for it.

Re: Non standard snare drum depths - issue?

Yep, from 1977 through the 1990's Sonor offered the D505/515/525 14x5.75, the D420 was originally 14 x 3.5, the LD547/557 14x7.25, the HD500 14x5.75; flying in the face of the conventions at the...

Re: Stick bag on the floor tom?

The only concern I have hanging my stick bag are the very, very fine surface scratches it causes in the lacquer when I knock it and it rubs against the drums. A bit of elbow grease and all is fine.

Re: highwood beech legacy 1976

Highwood are very, very well made UK Custom drums.

The Beech Legacy are probably about as vintage as you can get. From the 'UK Custom News Report' by Jeremy Peake in October 2012:

Re: New Snare Drum Advice

I swore by 14" snares until I tried a 13" Mapex Black Panther maple/cherry hybrid.

That then became my main snare for everything I've played in the last 5 years except for Surf music.

Re: What's the song and drummer that made you want to play drums?

No specific drummer influenced me to play drums. But the first drummer I 'air drummed' along with after getting a kit was Mick Underwood playing with Gillan.

In fact Mick, along with Rick Allen,...

Re: Bonham rocking a Sonor Teardrop kit

Sky Arts & VH-1 Classic sometimes show Beat-Club episodes, and the Sonor does appear to be the house kit. I haven't seen the episode with Led Zep yet though, but I have found the video from March...

Re: If you play Speed Metal, Black Metal or Death Metal did you start off that way?

I started playing what became Thrash in the early 80's; we just made it up as we went along and somehow it took off. To us, it was just a mix of what we were hearing with the NWOBHM and harkening...

Re: Let's have some GOOD drummer jokes.

Q - How many drummers does it take to change a light bulb?

A - Five: One to screw the bulb in, and four to talk about how much better Neil Peart would have done it.

Re: What would you do? Bought wrong drumset?

+1.


But, remember: It's easier to make a small drum sound bigger, than a big drum sound smaller.

Re: Drinking and Drumming

I don't drink at all before, or during, a show. I wouldn't expect someone working in a store, a solicitor/lawyer, doctor, cab driver, pilot etc to have a drink before starting work.

But once all...
