Re: DW Performace or C&C

Two totally different kits. Depends on the sound you want, vintage vs modern. Personally I prefer the C&C.

Re: Old timey drums from Sears

Silvertone has never made anything, it is just a stencil brand. For example Silvertone guitars were made by Kay, Danelectro, Harmony and other companies, amps by Danelectro. But yes Silvertone used...

Re: Old timey drums from Sears

If you don't want to do the vintage Gretsch/Ludwig/Slingerland thing you could always look out for one of the many Pearl stencils. There's a ton but the ones I've seen most are Apollo, Astro,...

Re: Help with color choice

Reminds me of my first set I got in college, was a mismatched set in pieces that I got for $20. The wraps were basically just taped on there. I pulled them off, stained the shells in black, and...

Re: Gigging Kit Help?

Honestly as a sound guy it is pretty doable to make junk drums sound good, and almost near impossible to make junk cymbals sound good. At least get bronze cymbals (the HCSes aren't bronze), it's...

Re: Tuning Toms??

I've heard of a bunch of people that tune their batter lower than the resos but I've never liked it that way. I either tune them to match or the batter a bit higher than the reso , but that's just...

Re: Snare for a $200 budget

+1. I've gone through several snares but my 14x6.5 Supralite has been my main for a while.

Re: Club Date SE or Signet?

Personally if you can get the Signets for less than the Club Dates, that's what I'd go with. I was looking at the two as well, and like you ended up getting the Signets for a really good price so...

Re: looking for new metal snare.

Acrolite is a wonderful drum, and quite widely used. The Supralite is also a great inexpensive drum. I used to own an Acro and sold it (I regret it), and I currently have a 6.5x14 Supralite, both...

That's what I get for skimming and not reading closely :)

Re: Versatile Snares

Ludwig Supralite is a great snare drum, and you'd actually still have some money leftover for sticks and/or heads.

Re: Ludwig's new Signet 105 drum line!

It's great and sounds great. With head changes you do have to be careful with the lugs as they will shift, I haven't had one fall out though. I didn't really like the stock heads and have been in...

Re: Potential drummer; have a maybe controversial question

Make sure you think it through carefully before you take the red pill, there's no turning back from it.

Re: Which is/was heavier - Sonor Designer or Yamaha RC?

I have a friend of mine who has a Sonor Designer kit, and yes they weigh a ton but as others have said most of that was due to all the metal on it. As far as just the shells themselves, hard to tell.

Re: Looking for help choosing a pro level drum kit

+1. Especially if your going to be studying jazz, cymbals will be important more so than your drums.

Going back to my first post in this thread, see everyone has a different idea.

There's actually a number of DW guys using the PDP Concept kit as well.

Re: Mid/high level kits.

+1. Outside of people on boards like this, even most musicians don't even really know the difference and don't care what you play, in my experience they mainly know brands if anything.

I've seen it multiple ways.

Sometimes the translation is "They are a good drummer..... and they are better than I am so I have to say something to make me look better because I'm jealous."

Re: Usiing An Electronic Kit With Addictive Drums For Live Performances

Latency is basically the delay it takes from what you do to get to where it's going. For example you hit the drum pad, but the sound doesn't actually happen for like half a second.

Re: Usiing An Electronic Kit With Addictive Drums For Live Performances

Your biggest hinderance will be latency especially since you'll be going from drums to computer through software back out to an audio interface to the system. Like veggo said you'll need some good...

Re: Mid/high level kits.

All depends on who you ask. One person's mid level kit is another persons high level hit.... and to some even an entry level kit.

Re: Help me find a good Drum Kit

I think you have your lines crossed. MCS are Bronze..... HCS is brass. Though you had the correct material (just wrong name) the Tama Imperialstar does come with the HCS Brass ones.

To the OP....

Re: Ludwig's new Signet 105 drum line!

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I figured I'd do that instead of starting a new one. I recently got one of these sets, a Gigabeat on sale at GC in Blue and have to say it's one of the best...
