Re: Ludwig Copper Phonic

Lol!

Given the price difference, the 6.5" might just have my name on it ♥

Re: Ludwig Copper Phonic

Been following this thread...
Is that a realistic price difference between the 6.5" and 5" I mean, the price difference between those sizes in different models and brands is usually more than $20...

Re: I like cheap snares

Does free qualify as cheap? lol

I found an old snare a while back (along with a bunch of other free stuff that was on the curb. Go figure!). It was Hi-Lo, one of those stencil brands. All I...

Re: another snare buzz thread

Some drums are also just unruly (for whatever reason). I have an Acrolite that for some reason always has that high pitched buzz from the snares. Tried different wires, tunings, and heads, and...

Re: New Guru "Tour" series kits - details here first :)

Rookie question...
The 15x7 snare... What kind of sound profile should we expect from that size? Can't say I have seen anything like that short of marching snares. Sounds like it would be a deep...

Converting a marching snare into a floor tom

Hi!
I have floating around a Pearl marching snare I want to convert into a floor tom. It is 10x14" or so (maybe 11x14"? The 14" is constant, though lol). I thought about going with a Evan's G2...

Re: Nashville and College...

One thing you will have to contend with is the change of atmosphere. Nashville is a big city.... for the South. Biggest city in TN (assuming Memphis isn't...

Re: Assistance ID'ing Pearl Snare

To me, it sounds pretty good. I have had worse snares, for sure. There is a youtube link with an audio clip in the above post. Tuned up very easily, too (this coming from someone that isn't great...

Re: Assistance ID'ing Pearl Snare

I'm kinda OCD about open ended threads...

Well, as cheap as the drum was, I went ahead and purchased it. I can honestly say that I have bought newer drums that were in worse shape. Took it...

Do you have a car or truck of some sort? How much in belongings do you have? The drums you have do not have a small footprint. You could always partially disassemble...

Assistance ID'ing Pearl Snare

Hi!
Found this for sale locally, and caught my attention. All I know about it is that it is a Pearl and chrome...and that is about it. Seems to be eight lugs, too. I looked up the PEARL badge,...

Re: 1941 Leedy Drumset

Wish he would have pics of the cymbals. I rarely ever hear about those Zenjians, and what I do hear, it is a mix of truth and fiction. I got one here (12") and it sounds really good. MY daughter...

Re: Value of Ludwig Rocker drum set

It really depends on condition. I got mine (Rocker II's) for $150, but needed tension rods and a front hoop for the bass drum. Needed a couple other little things as well. After heads and...

Re: whining snare. please help

When you mean "whine", do you mean a high pitched, almost twang that lingers after you hit the drum? Mine was doing it (still does, but nowhere near as much). In my case, it was the top head...

Re: Mystery bass drum.... ID help, please!

Re: 16" bass drum... Hints/Suggestions?

Update!

Now that Xmas is close by, I am finishing up the little project. With heads, I went with a 16" Remo PS3 Coated head, and some felt for muffling. The little bass does pack a punch,...

Re: Metronome plus Samples Live, how to ?

Depending on availability, couldn't you just stockpile some of those Y adapters? I mean, you could have a total of 5 or so. One breaks, and you have a new one waiting in the wings. That's the...
