Re: Thinking about buying a Ludwig Vistalite kit. Thoughts?

If I didn't already have a set of Ludwig Vistalites, I would definitely buy that kit for $1600. Great sounding drums at a good price. You might get him to come down to $1500 - I have amber, but I...

Re: "Nobody cares about the drummer, except for the Rush guy."

There are women that are very attracted to drummers at a live show. Typically, you'd think the women would go for the lead singer or guitarist up front, but that is not always the case. I am very...

Re: What is the best modern Ludwig Kit that creates Bonham's sound?

He also played a 12x14 rack tom on his Ludwig natural maple kit in 1969. It might be a 12x15, though, I've never really been sure.

Re: Cold Feet?

Another option you could try is wearing Chuck Taylor All-Stars, hi-top or lo-top. The difference from other shoes is that Chucks have no arch support- the footbed is totally flat, which feels great...

Re: 1960's Gretsch kit

Why is that? Why 18" or 20" bass drum? If you're not using a taxi to get your drums to a gig (the original reason for small bass drums), why wouldn't you want to have a bass drum with a real bass...

Re: recommendations for new set

I saw a beautiful Ludwig Epic kit in Mahogany burst in your price range today at Atlanta Pro Percussion. It was 10-12-14-16-24 with nickel hardware and a matching snare for $795 - it was beautiful,...

Re: anyone order from sweetwater?

Make sure to compare Sweetwater's drum head prices with samash.com. Sam Ash has great prices on all the Remo heads I like. I found the constant calls from sales associates at Sweetwater to be...

Re: DW Finishply

I received a new 16x18 Red Sparkle floor tom a few days ago from Ludwig (In less than 6 weeks!). It has 2 seams and I was not surprised - I think that's standard for 18" and up.

I also got a...

Re: DW Floor Tom size advice

15"x14" also a great floor tom size. 10-12-15 would be a nice pitch spread.

Re: Losing that second crash cymbal

I can appreciate the 2 cymbal only approach, but I still want 3 crashes :-), 1 on the hi hat side and 2 on the ride side with the 2 floor toms = happy family. I really like having 3 pitch options...

Re: The G.A.S is returning

Give in to the GAS. Must purchase... :-)

I gave in recently and ordered 22" & 24" Paiste 2002 crash cymbals. They are going to be huge, beautiful, and sound glorious!

Re: Floor tom feet, resonance, etc.

Good tip, there. I've done the same thing by tearing off a little piece of auralex foam and putting it at just 1 contact point of rack tom to snare stand. It opened the drum up & the difference was...

Re: Bass Drum Pillows or no pillows

For you guys doing the Simon Phillips towel thing, how are you anchoring the towel against the batter head so it doesn't move? Especially with no port hole in the resonant head, how do you keep it...

Re: Floor tom feet, resonance, etc.

The Pearl feet (around $10 per set of 3) are excellent and give you sustain & tone for days. They are on every floor tom I have. You will love what they do for your floor toms.

Re: Classic tunes speeding up

Early Bad Co. varies a lot in tempo, but the whole band moves together. It feels right - it wouldn't line up to a click at all, but it works. They were just a great band.

Re: (The) Drum - She or He?

No he or she, just drum. No running drum heads, just using drum heads.

Re: Are Ludwig Supraphonics really that good a snare

I agree with this :-). I love the 402. My other favorite is a 6.5x14" Ludwig Vistalite snare from 2004. And it may sound like heresy, but I like the supra and the vistalite better than my 6.5x14...

Re: A nice 3pc vintage kit on ebay... anyone?

Those drums make my DW Classics purchase seem reasonable, and I thought the Classics were too much $. I love the DW Classics kit, but just to add a 16x18 floor tom to the kit is $1000. A Ludwig...

Re: Wish I could delete vocals from songs

There are some bands with vocals like that in the warehouse rehearsal rooms where I have a rented space. My friends and I call those Cookie Monster vocals, and yeah, they are awful. Usually paired...

Re: Ludwig Supraphonic, I need it

Man, I know what you mean about the blue/olive badge. I was 14 in 1975 and used to drool over those Ludwig catalogs. The first kit I had, though, was 12-14-20 Ludwig red sparkles from the late...

Re: Ludwig Supraphonic, I need it

No difference in sound between old and new Supras, 400 or 402. I've got a pre-serial # 400 and new (in the last few years) 400 & 402 - all excellent. Don't pay jacked up prices for an old Supra w/...

Re: Favorite Versions Of Songs

...and I always liked Manfred Mann's cover of Springsteen's "Blinded By The Light". Not like The Boss is hurting for cash, but I'd bet he saw some pretty good mailbox money from that one.

Re: Ludwig (large shell) kit question

Very fun, cool kit that you are getting! It's my kit's big brother ;-). I have a Ludwig Classic Maple kit in Natural Maple like yours - mine is from 1999 and is 12x14, 16x16, 16x18, & 16x26, with a...
