Re: This was a topic of discussion the other day

I think this kind of mind frame comes with age/experience.

Arguing for arguments sake I now leave to others.

To me, a different pay grade policy for different instrument players in a band...

Re: Consolidating Gear-Opinions Welcomed and Appreciated

After a few yars on drum forums, I have observed that a good deal of drummers seem to be collectors not only of drums but also of cars, motorcycles, guitars, razors, etc.

Guys owning 50 snare...

Congrats !

Re: Ludwig / Noble Cooley Solid-Ply Snare Drum Collaboration - Video

Outsourced chrome seems to be the main culprit here, but I might also be wrong.

Re: Buying drums without hearing them first

I remember your journey, glad to see you still love them as much as on your first day.

That being said, isn't it every canadian's dream to live in Hawaii ?

Re: DW Snare Drums?

Wow !

In my experience, brass is very sensitive and reactive at every dynamic level, from a very light touch to more agressive playing.

Never owned a bell bronze, and I wonder about its...

Maybe PM Darth, because posting the link here is like throwing a bone to a pack of hungry and unsatiable wolves.

Re: State your unpopular drumming opinions

Amen !

That opinion should be the most popular one on this list.

Good musicians let their playing do the talking.

Bragging about one's competence is always a big mistake in my book, as we...

DW drums are awesome in every way imaginable.

They have a sound of their own.

Brass usually does low very well in my experience.

Re: Probably getting my kick drum cut down - what size?

Its on the badges people.

I see a badge with figure stating ahm2218 and the thing is cut down to a 2214 unknown woodworker, that resale value dropped to nothing.

Re: What is your least favorite concession you made in your set up?

I was in the same state of mind with my 22x18.

Then I saw Larnell Lewis playing one, Vinnie Colaiuta, as well as some of my favorite fusion/jazz/rock drummers, and thought hey if it's good enough...

Funny thing, I now seem to be associating colours and finishes to food or scenery, which turned out to be a good way to figure out if they are right for me.

Re: Rank the brands

This thread is sure to evoke passions.

I could have gone with Jasper shells or 3-ply Luddies, but that China thing is the one hot controversial button for Yamaha guys, of which I proudly am.

Re: Selling Yamaha what price?

I paid 450$CAD for that snare slightly used including shipping and that was kind of a steal. My main snare at the moment.

Same here.

The marketing around those kits, finishes and hardware seems to target younger players. The vertical integration of their atv line in a drum commercial is pretty clever, but it can...

Re: Gretsch USA Rock Drum Set Shootout!

I really like USA custom toms tuned on the higher side, say med-high all the way to bop-high.

To me, that is the Gretsch sound I preferred.
