Re: Does anyone actually like big finales?

I don't mind a big finale at the end of a show. It gives the crown a chance to give a last cheer for whole performance/show, not just the song, and it gives the band a chance to wave and thank the...

Re: Wrong size tension rods?

You can buy the little female end piece that receives the tension rod. Its a little piece that is removable from the actual lug. You probably cross threaded all of them when you used the finer...

Re: Bearing edge recommendations

Well, I received my samples for the new wrap I am going to put on. Of the 3 I had sent, this one seems to be the most unique.

Re: Wine Barrel Bass Drum

I suppose you could always roll it in to the venue. No need to pick it up and throw your back out.

Re: Looking for help choosing a pro level drum kit

For probably $1K you could buy a used Gretsch Catalina Jazz 4 piece kit and a used Yamaha Stage Custom 5 or 6 piece kit. Take your other Gretsch stuff and keep all the hardware, hoops, throwoffs,...

Re: Looking for help choosing a pro level drum kit

DW Collectors is completely over rated and over priced. Yes, I said it. Quite frankly they are all the same and they charge a fortune for their "exotic" finishes. As you saw just how much more...

Re: Mid/high level kits.

The OP wasnt asking what a "pro" kit is, but what are mid level and high level kits. Low level kits are usually in the sub $1000 price range ( assuming a standard 5 piece kit). Mid level kits are...

Re: Mid/high level kits.

I would put the Starclassic Birch (aka. Performer) below the maples. Not to say Maple is better than Birch, but Tama did some minor things to make the kit a bit cheaper to build. 8 lug bass drums...

Re: Bearing edge recommendations

Prices range all over the place. I have heard $20 per edge. I have seen $20 per drum for small drums and it goes up as size increases. My guess would be that someone would charge extra for doing...

Re: Bearing edge recommendations

I'm just spit balling here, so a drum builder's advise is far better than what I could come up with. I don't run any internal muffling in my bass drums, but I do use Powerstroke 3's on both sides of...

Re: Bearing edge recommendations

So, for the resonant side of the bass drum you are thinking I should go with something similar to the batter side of the bass drum/floor toms? Or are you saying I should go with something like the...

Re: Bearing edge recommendations

I have some samples coming my way for new wraps. I'm not sure when they may arrive, but I'm excited to put a different finish on the exterior of this kit. The all black look really dates the kit. ...

Re: Bearing edge recommendations

Tama's catalogs are a bit goofy with one year saying they used basswood and the next saying they use beech on the interiors. In the end I don't think it matters much to the drum's sound. Mine are...

Re: Bearing edge recommendations

Oh, I know I may be underwhelmed, or very disappointed, with the end result, but what do I have to lose? This kit, while it may be "cherished" as my fist kit, is not really that good. I know it was...

Re: Bearing edge recommendations

So I tinkered around in CAD to get the most accuracy I could for the shape of the edges and here is what I came up with based on Andy's suggestions:

Re: Bearing edge recommendations

Hmm, since my edges are currently 45 degrees, I would have to have a lot of material removed to try and cut a 30 degree edge on the drums, no?

My current edges are basically this:

Re: Bearing edge recommendations

I thought about that as well Bo. I guess I didnt want to over complicate the process by using multiple edges, but its certainly a possability.

The 30 degree you are thinking about is the shallow...

Bearing edge recommendations

So I have my old acoustic kit from the early 90's: my Tama Rockstar DX kit. Its a big kit with big power toms, long lugs, black wrap and all the late 80's glory a kit from that day had. Needless to...

Re: Anyone else ever "split the kit"?

I'm thinking I will split my monster Tama kit into one: 8/10/12/14/22 fusion kit and a second 13/16/18/22 kit. I can still piece it all together in to a monster double bass 80's rocker kit, but ...

Re: Need forum wisdom (fusion "standards")

The only "Mariachi Metal" I can think of is Malaguena Salerosa by Chingon. I dont consider it metal, but its the only thing I can think of thags anywhere close to what Bo is talking about.

Re: "Bum Wrap" Drum wraps

So, its like a heavy weight card stock. Hmm... I may just look at buying real delmar wrap for the couple drums I need done. Thanks.

Re: Pearl Free Floater (advice)

People associate aluminum with quality, and steel with sh!t. I like a steel shelled snare because of the bright poppy sound it has. However, steel snares come with just about every low end kit on...
