Re: West Coast Drum Shops

Re: Mid/high level kits.

Very well put! I'd add 'that most all mid range kits sound well' For high end, it can also then be stated that it hinges on where it is made, if they are hand made, and the manufacturing...

Re: Very loose/flexible wrists - a must have?

Yes, my sentiments exactly and how I learned as well. Today I only use pillows to sleep on.

Re: Very loose/flexible wrists - a must have?

So keep in mind they were not clubs :-) , just really heavy 'drumsticks' so damage was not really an issue. And the weight never changed so if was not like muscle building. It is interesting...

Re: RANT: Disappointed in Sonor

I've been following this thread with some reservations. Sonor has been using this claw for a long time and still does. In all that time, I'm sure that if this was a problem it would have been...

Re: Very loose/flexible wrists - a must have?

When i first started playing, my teacher had me get lead filled pipes and use them as drum sticks on a pillow to develop wrist flexibility and speed. Today I suppose one could go to home depot for...

Re: Good Studio Reference Monitors

Check out your local GCs in person. They tend to put display studio monitors out on 'clearance' because they are scratched or not perfect from being on display. I got a pair of Fostex PM841...

Memory Lane - Music Row

There is a thread on the forum about Buddy Rich memorabilia in which a store named "Manny's" is mentioned. This triggered some fond memories for me.

In the 70s and early 80s I can recall going ...

Re: Back pain while drumming

Some other thoughts:

if you are on concrete, this could have an effect - unless you have a carpet with heavy pad under it (ie like you would in your home) and not just a skid pad. There is no...

Wow. This thread sure took on a life of its own! Larry, was this a generic question and did you expect the responses you got?

The way I saw the question was 'Starter kits an most mid-range kits...

Re: Trusting others with your kit?

I think it is very admirable that you would even consider putting your kit out at a high/middle school gig for young people to play. I don't think I'd worry as much about cracking a cymbal as much...

Re: Sonor S-Class Pro

Hi.

From the research I did, the S Class Pro is Chinese made.

It is up to you to decide based on condition, what you get, and what the nickel and dime costs are going to be (for example, do...

Re: Sonor S-Class Pro

Thanks. The infor is iffy at best .. I wish Sonor had a timeline. But I think we are both wrong. ;-) The brochure you pointed me too has a 1997 date and the sonormuseum link says 1995+.

Re: Sonor S-Class Pro

From the research I did (I'm building a compete spread-sheet), The S Class birch/maple drums were introduced in 1998. The hardware was made in China and the shells were made in German. I'm not sure...

Re: Best Maple Drumkit around $1000

+1. "best" is really subjective.

I never quite understood why there are not sticky threads here on 'new drums' that have a market value of under 500, 500-1000, 1000-1500, 1500-300, over 3000. ...

Re: Another Band Drama Thread

The drummer is always too loud. It does not matter if the guitar player has 4 hiwatt stacks set to 11 on the volume dial and the bass play users 2 18s. It is always the drummers fault. :-)
