Re: Pairing drums and cymbals

Exactly. Or rather, as I don't have that many kits to choose from, selecting cymbals and heads/tuning to suit the music.

Re: Yamaha Recording Custom (the rare ones!)

I'm a huge fan of the Real Wood finish (or rather "finishes" in plural, as they tend to look drastically different on different kits), but that gray seems quite nice. Understated, but still stands...

Re: Roto Tom Mounting

If you don't intend to re-tune while playing (by rotating the "drum"), couldn't you just mount them on any rims style tom mounts? Would fit nice and low on any BD, probably looking quite good.

Re: Best Period of Yamaha Recording Customs?

In the early 80's I dreamed about one of these concert toms kits in Real Wood finish, but for different reasons I couldn't buy it where I lived (in Sweden). So when I saw this kit used two years ago,...

Re: The SupraReflecta

I'm not sure which was worst: the idea or the execution.

Re: Copper Hoops

Are these really massive copper? I'd think pure copper would be too soft to work as a hoop, but what do I know... 8 or 10 lugs?

Re: Creative/minimalist kick drum muffling ideas?

Yes, even if I prefer the (almost) unmuffled sound of the my kicks when practicing or playing unmiced rehearsals, most sound engineers prefer shorter tone -- and I will give it to them. The...

Re: Geeking out a little!

That is what I do. Wrap a small piece of gaffers tape around the spur (on the inside) .. and done!

I love these simple, lightweight legs.

Re: Should I buy this HipGig Kit?

And, even when we know this wasn't his cymbals, I'd still be happy take care of these for $200.

Re: Deep bass drums

I'm not saying this might not be true, but I'd wan't someone to do a double blind test of this. I know I couldn't feel any difference between otherwise identical 20" and 16" deep bass drums.

Re: Reunited with Oak Customs

I just love the subtle Yamaha logo on that BD head! That's the way to do it, if you absolutely got to have a brand front head.

Re: What drums intrigue you that you have NEVER owned

Wacco rope tensioned drums. Finnish company, beautiful workmanship and good sound (only heard them once, played at a festival). Would like to try out the concept.

Re: Finally! New Yamaha Recording Custom Wood Snares

I think the kits (especially the toms) from the old RC series are much more popular than the snares. Around here you can often find the old RC snares at decent prices, while the toms/BDs are getting...

Re: New Drums from Mapex

Not easy to see from the video, but we can guess from the marketing images: overengineering aŽla Sonor, maybe?

I'd like to see a picture with someone sitting behind that kit. Just to get some proportions. Geesh.

No, not yet another thread about Yamaha 8000... Must. Resist. GAS!

These drums, in this color, must be amongst the nicest instruments ever built. Congratulations!

Re: Tom angles!!!!

You won't accidentally hit the wrong tom, that's for sure. And those "long tom runs" suddenly became something verbatim.
