Re: Narrowed Down Drum Set Options -> Final Help Requested

Congrats Sticks; I am about to delete my account here and you are the one and only reason.

I am a DW guy, and am defeated by your little childish digs at DW in every thread. You pop in the "Show...

Re: Okay, so how are the DW Collectors'/Performance series drums?

Very good drums; both series.

The $ will vary a LOT depending on what you want. If you are buying new, expect a floor of ~$1400 for a Performance 4 piece (w/snare) or ~$1800-$2200 for a...

Re: 1996 Custom DW Kit - Value?

If you are talking about just the four piece, I would guess somewhere between $1000-$1500.

It's really hard to say wothout seeing it though. What kinds or scratches, dents and dings are on the...

Re: Thick shell Bronze options

I've got a 13x5.5 DW bronze snare. It is a thick shell like the other ones you've mentioned. Mine is about 6-7 years old, but I understand the brand new ones are also heavy. One of the few on the...

Re: DW 14x8 Steel Snare GC exclusive

I jammed on one at my local GC. Would have bought it too if I didn't already have a 14x6.5 steel Collectors.

Re: Question for you DW Experts

I wasn't really trying to make any point about sound preference; that is all subjective. The one note I will make is that the Keller shell kits don't seem to hold near as much re-sale value on the...

Re: Question for you DW Experts

I could be a little off on the years, but I think the timeframes are fairly correct.

The badges have gone from:

Black (~1990-2000)
Gold (~2001-2007)
Silver (~2008-present)

The timbre...

Re: High end kit that has a lot of problems. Are any of them not worthy of complaint?

Sorry to hear that. I've had more luck with my Collectors kit I bought back in March. Never measured the shells for roundness, but I haven't had tuning or sound issues. The tuning rods on my toms...

Re: Would you buy...

I did.

I got my DWs (2010 Collectors 5 piece) for $2000 brand new. Black Velvet finish; I like it , but it wasn't my first choice. I didn't think I'd get another chance at a DW for that price...

Re: Custom DW Snare - Questions

Looking at the DW website, the info it has on the maple/mahogany shells is that they are VLT (assume the sanre also). If so, I would think a 6.5 would be plenty deep enough. I own a 14x6.5 maple...

Re: My DW Collectors maple snare sounds dull to me...

To get a ringier sound from the heads, I'd go with a one ply batter head. My two favs are the Evans Power Center (not reverse dot) and the Ambassador X (single ply, 20% thicker than an Ambassador). ...

Re: My DW Collectors maple snare sounds dull to me...

Is it a black or gold badge? I believe the black badge DWs are Keller shells. It's just my opinion, but I've owned both the Keller shell Collectors snare and the newer, DW made Collectors shell...

The FS series (birch) I owned was fairly well made and sturdy, but it was a very early model produced in Japan. The sound however,...

Re: Who gets the stock snare with new kit and why!

There are very few stock snares I would dish out the $$ for if buying a kit.

1. I am a fan of the non-matching snare. I personally like a finish contrast between my snare and shell pack.

Re: Making this a jazz snare - DW Maple

I'm a big fan of the Puresound equalizers. They are very responsive and do a good job at dampening the buzz from other drums.

Also, for jazz/light blues, I woud probably go with a thinner head...

Re: DW Kit (need help identifying)

Agree with the others that is an older Keller-made Collector's set. I used to have a DW snare from that era with the same badge in a black lacquer.

In those sizes, if it is in good condition, I...

Re: How often should you tune the batter head? (Snare)

I'll usually tune my snares up really good once every month or so (practice/play 3-4 days a week).

In between, I'll tighten my batter head about a quarter turn when the snares start sounding a...
