Re: Beginner, Intermediate, and Pro Kit Definitions

I've always kind of evaluated it by the hardware. Cheap hoops, mounts with limited adjustability, flimsy bass drum spurs, lugs that detune easy, etc. Higher end kits will (usually) have better...

Re: Oh No, Not another Bearing Edge.

He was the first to post a video of it, thus "prior art".

Re: Oh no! Not another new bearing edge :(

You can shorten sustain of any drum. But not every drum can sing.

I think as I've gotten older I've realized I want my drums to sing. Afterwards I can put on gel, gaffer tape, rags, wallet, etc...

Re: Why the hate? (Lars Ulrich)

Acted like a front man, was the drummer. Unless you can play like Buddy Rich, haters gonna hate.

Re: Rock and roll....over?

IMO Hip hop is already dead. It's gone the way of Rock and Jazz before it.

The future of music instrumentation will be on tablets, most likely some form of Electronica. You don't even need to...

Re: Other than practice- quickest way to improve?

I'll 2nd (3rd) recording yourself and listening back, as well as playing live with others. It's amazing how bad you will almost always sound when listening to yourself, and how all those rudiment...

Re: Advice: Sonor or Pearl

Seems slightly odd you would want to pick between a vintage maple or medium beech Sonor, given the difference in sound. If you're considering SQ2 then you may as well consider every shell available....

Re: Sonor essential or Mapex Armory

Actually both those kits are made in the same factory in China. I think you'd do well with either, tho I'd prefer the Sonor.

Re: Using a snare as a floortom

Chris Dave does this as well (though that's not saying much since all he has is snares). One of the better setups I saw had what I think was an old Ludwig Parade Snare (14x11), tuned low.

Re: Stoopid drum deal of the day: Sonor Jungle

I had this issue with a converted 16" floor tom I turned into a bass with the PB pedal. Best I could do was get it close enough not to hit the rim and make due. I usually use my Vater Bomber Beater...

Re: Does independence just click one day?

I think it "clicks" when you finally get it enough to feel like it's part of your repertoire. Of course you forget the weeks/months of work leading up to that.

That's how it was when I was very...

Re: Thanks Bo!

I kinda always wondered what happened to other bands when a member goes on tour. Now I know.

Also sad I won't get to see Weird Al's tour. Sold out in like 2 minutes here. When I saw you guys a...

Re: 14/16/18 bass drum (depth size)

This is something I've always disagreed with. I think they look ridiculous.

The Prolite is definitely a pro level kit. That said, you did say "probably".

Re: ?uestlove's new Tonight Show Kit

Nice to see shallow bass drums making a comeback. Hopefully this catches on more.

Re: Sonor Picolo

You might be right. The two drums basically look exactly the same, its just whether it's bronze or brass. I thought brass because on the bronze drums the badge tends to look lighter than the shell...

Re: Sonor Picolo

It's a Sonor Signature Symphony Snare (SY 1404). Brass shell and finish. I believe they came out around 1996, retailed for about $1,200 back then. Your bottom hoop is interesting because it has...

Re: Adults Learning Drums

I disagree that adults think they are poor learners. They've obviously learned other things and spent a lot of time to learn those things. Which is where I think the real issue lies. Time...

Re: Drums as an investment?

I do think a mint HLD 590 as you said would be one drum that would make you money even with inflation calculated in. But it sorta has everything going for it. It's just generally rare, it's the...

Re: What's your story about how you started drumming?

In 5th grade we got to pick what instruments we wanted to play. I wanted to play the sax. The problem was, every kid wanted to play the sax (apparently it was the "cool" instrument), so they told...

Re: Sonor Vintage Series-2015

Here's the video Wally was talking about. I agree that for a German made Sonor, they're not really giving it a very good introduction. It's surprising really, they almost always have studio videos...

Re: Thinking of replacing my sonor signatures

I wouldn't cut them down. There's a lot of people who would buy a vintage Sig set, and there's so many other options out there to fit any musical taste you have. No need to hack a perfectly good...
