Re: Speaking of tuning....

Great playing, Larry, and indeed, an excellent tone from the toms! Seems the theory about this tuning in an unmic'd scenario is the way to go. Begs the question though: when the toms ARE close mic'd,...

Re: Matt cameron vs. Dave abbruzzese

I'm a HUGE Matt Cameron fan- he's in my top 5, for sure- but no one has topped Abbruzzese in PJ, in my opinion.

Re: Help us chose a Mapex MyDentity Kit. Let's have some fun.

I'm partial to #3, due to sharing colors with my beloved UNC Tarheels, who just whipped some Duke Blue Devil ass Saturday evening...! GO HEELS!

I realize the non-US folks here may not know what...

Re: Miking drums for live shows

I kinda like those mic's. I have the same set. No, they aren't the Audix D series but I never expected them to be comparable. One thing I'd advise for you is to buy a couple of BD mic's (I recommend...

Re: New Mapex Orions!

So they're not the same shells as the Meridian series, but I do think they were the same as the Pro M, with the exception of the burl outer ply. I could be wrong, & don't wanna look it up 'cause I'm...

Re: 80's Tama Imperialstar mastercarft 14 x 6.5 snare

Well, it does seem cumbersome (and possibly heavy), and maybe unnecessary, but there's nothing *wrong* with it, so I don't mind using it as it is... So more specifically, if I put on wires for a 14"...

Re: Ahead Snare Drum

Here's my two posts about it in a recent thread:

I own the Ahead 6x14 and my bandmate has the Pork Pie Big Black 6.5x14, so I can vouch for both of them. Great sounding drums. I like my Ahead ...

Re: 80's Tama Imperialstar mastercarft 14 x 6.5 snare

Resurrecting this thread 'cause I've scored one of these, a 5x14, for 80 bucks. Looks like it's in great condition. Solid and heavy! It has the identical roller things underneath the strainer and...

Re: Choosing a brass snare

The S-Hoops do seem pretty sound- nice rimshots, rimclicks, tuning is even & easy. They do add a slight bit of difficulty with mic clamps but it's workable. As for the other features- I kinda don't...

Re: Blisters from sticks...and slippery sticks

I'd recommend just learning to relax during the gigs and hold the sticks like you do when you practice. I went through it years ago also. No gloves, no wrap, no sticky stuff, no unfinished sticks (I...

Re: ludwig lm402

if you mean cutting out the ringing, I can see how it'd be annoying when you play the drum by itself. Same for if/when you get a kit- resonant drums will sound like there's too much, bordering on...

Legend was Kaman Music's brand before they partnered with Gretsch. No idea who made them.

Re: Best way to mount toms...

Any sort of RIMS-style suspension mount will negate the need for drilling.

Re: Wood vs other materials

I'd be concerned about the propensity of Trick shells to hold heat during outdoor summer gigs where there's no tent.

Re: Mic'ing a kit in a small venue

No, they're not, among bands who know how to use a PA in low-volume situations. He mentions "micing for balance", to which I'd amend to "micing for balance and clarity", as per my post above. I...

Re: Timbales vs wirelss snare

The Q Popper comes closer than any snare drum I've heard to sounding like a timbale, probably due to it being an actual timbale build, but with a bottom head & snare wires (and no snare bed on the...

Re: Mic'ing a kit in a small venue

I've done the gamut, and have concluded that it's best to mic' it up and just not pump out a lot of volume if it's not necessary. When you do this, you're creating a source point at the PA speakers...

Re: Snare beds

My Pearl Q-Popper snare doesn't have beds, yet doesn't have this problem. Every other snare I've seen without beds rattles like crazy. (They've all been cheapo drums, seen a lot of 'em on my...
