Re: NAMM 2015: Premier 'The Beast' Snare

Premier Resonator would be the most prolific example of that, but most users report that they sound better once the inner liner is removed (as would be necessary to get at any of the hardware...

Re: NAMM 2015 - Saturn V - I need info! (Excited)

You're not buying a year, you're buying a specification. Saturn IV and Saturn V are exactly the same, right down to the screws and the finishes, apart from the bearing edge and tom holder. You'd have...

Re: New from NAMM

Don't know what prices you've been looking at, but they are all over the web from $209 (Monarch) to $495 (the 24" HH models). Example:

Re: Triggera Bix - kick trigger

It has. There are several DIY jobs that have been published online over the last ten years, and there is a Roland patent from a couple of years ago on a piezo/capsule/bass drum beater product that's...

Re: Sonor Prolite pricing?

Once again, that's why I said 'pro'. This is not a job for a DIY hacker, but assuming it's not a fade or a burst finish, then a pro builder would be able to do it just like it would have come from...

That's why I said 'pro'. 'Pro's don't hack, they make it look like it would have done from the factory. ;-)

Re: Sonor Prolite pricing?

The cost of getting it cut down by a pro will be far less than the money you'll lose by selling the FT used and buying the RT new.

Re: How to place air vents on my 3 ply African Mahogany Shells

Pearl ISS are notorious for choking the drums - clamped to the batter hoop and then grounded straight into the floor via the mount. What did it sound like in the snare stand - crucially WITHOUT the...

Re: How to place air vents on my 3 ply African Mahogany Shells

What's your mounting hardware? All other things being equal, 'choking' is much more likely to be due to your mounting setup and resonance grounding than it is anything to do with vents.

The only...

Yes, loads. I find them a little too tubby on rack tom sizes but fantastic on floor toms - in terms of the way...

Re: Pearl eliminator pedal adjustment

1st info - it's not an Eliminator, it's a bog standard Pearl pedal. Eliminators have double chains and replaceable plastic cam shapes.

Anyway, it's an easy problem to fix. The two castings (chain...

Re: how much was this kit?

If you're enquiring about the red kit you've purchased, it will have been a 5pc with two toms added on. If you have 8/10/12/13/16 toms it will originally have been 12/13/16 and the 8 and 10 were add...

Re: Tee Drums / Alan Tocknell anyone know 'em ?

If they are not even, then they are certainly not Very Good.




This is actually standard, most kits with mounted rack toms come with a badge on each panel either side of the tom mount - it's...

Re: rare yamaha stage custom ive bought

Just because they don't make them in Japan any more doesn't mean they are rare. There are TENS of THOUSANDS of 1st generation Stage Customs out there, because it was a great kit for the money from a...

Re: Spent a few hours in Drum Shop (Washington, UK) today

Indeed, but 3000 is including VAT in the UK, and US prices are considered as the net price without the sales tax. So in a relevant USD amount, it'd be 3000 minus VAT = 2500 net = ~ $4000

Re: USA drummers: paying import duty on drums?

You pay the seller the goods price plus the shipping cost. When the goods arrive in the UK, there will be customs charges from HMRC (4% import duty on most musical instrument items, 20% VAT like...

Re: Guitarists - Marshall DSL40c

The 15c will depend on quite how loud the drummer is - there's loud, and then there's Travis Barker... If it's 'normal' loud, it should be just enough to compete - if the drummer is attempting to...

Re: Sonor S Classix or Sonor Prolites

Between the two I'd take the Classix, it'll give you a larger tuning range and more versatile sound options depending on head choice - the only reason they're discontinued is they didn't sell, and...

Re: Shopping for a used mid-price kit: When did this fad for deep bass drums start?

Don't bet - find out! Gareth at HighWood drums does BD cut-downs every week, cost for a bass drum cut-down, re-edge and re-drill is from 40. Even if you're not near them, a stripped bass drum shell...

Re: is there an 'industry standard' studio monitor?

I'd say Mackie 824's would be the starting point. But it's not as wide a spread as SM57/SM58 mics. Or Pearl Exports! There are lots of very good, equally valid monitors out there, none have absolute...
