Re: Can't decide on a rack tom size for a jazz kit

I wouldn't go with the two up option personally. Having more than one Tom in that position forces me to move my ride out of where I like it.

That said, I love having options so I'd be totally...

Re: Making $ playing drums

Church gigs, man.

Like, I'm not a church guy normally, but a band I play with played a kids church camp a couple weeks ago, and we got paid $400 each(five of us) for four days, couple hours a...

Re: A dumb customer?

I do feel bad for the drum shop, as this practice of buying shit for recording/gigs, etc., to basically obtain free rentals is becoming pretty common. It does hurt shops, you can only get something...

Re: A dumb customer?

Dumb?

I don't know. He bought a kit, didn't like it, took it back? I guess maybe that's a bit risky but honestly I don't get the issue.

I do this all the time with clothes. Buy a handful, take...

Re: Bid like a man!

For real! So much better on many levels. Only real issue is a smaller market and often slightly lower prices, but no biggie.

Re: Looking for help to ID Gretsch snare drum

Okay, well then I'm wrong! Sorry about that. Thanks for the little history lesson, lol! Didn't realize the cats had those badges ever.

Re: Looking for help to ID Gretsch snare drum

Ah. Regardless, the badge is most definitely not a catalina badge.

Re: Looking for help to ID Gretsch snare drum

First response was it. It's a ten ply maple snare they used to make - I've played one, good drum. Not a catalina, the badge is all wrong. I'd assume this misinformation came from the fact that one...

Re: Does your gear HAVE to be the same brand or do you mix/match?

I tend towards the ridiculously stupid "all must match" crowd. When I had my it, it was all gretsch drums, meinl cymbals, gibraltar hardware, remo heads. I guess I just like the clean look that it...

Re: Intersting article on Beats Headphones

Go with the AKG K240s! Those are some extremely well designed headphones. Not to mention, they make the cable easy to swap out and replace, which is a huge, huge upside. Comfortable, good response...

Re: Drum fads: Past, present...and future?

Dry, quiet cymbals are definitely in now. Small kits. Stacks.

All are fads I'm guilty of partaking in.

Thank god pingy, thick cymbals aren't the thing right now. Disgusting and ridiculously...

Re: Jazz Bass Drum Microphone??

I can't stand the D6. Others like it, but IMO it makes most bass drums sound clicky and dead, and has way too much pre-eq. Ymmv, but for jazz especially, I'd rather have an EV20 or maybe even an SM7....

Re: If you were sitting behind my kit.

Nope haha, I think I missed the mark with that one.

I was suggesting you throw floor tom legs on the new snare to make it an official floor tom.

Wasn't too serious lol. ;)

Re: Show us your 3 piece kits!

I adore that setup, porter ^. Freaking gorgeous.

I think you could totally get away with that. Personally, I like smaller kits because they force me to be creative. Less stuff means I have to use...

Re: Buying a Jazz Kit. Help Me.

By the way, huge fan of Blade too. His sound can definitely be reasonably imitated by any of the bop sized Gretsch kits, I've chased that sound myself on occasion. Never been huge on his kick tone,...

Re: Buying a Jazz Kit. Help Me.

To be clear, I'm referring to these:

As opposed to the older, square badge cats.

Re: Buying a Jazz Kit. Help Me.

Round badge Catalinas? Nah, they're cheap as fuck, compared to the new classics or the renowns. 600, maybe 700 new. 400 used?

Brooklyns are better drums though for sure. Gotta love those. Not big...

Re: NEW DRUM KIT

If it were me, I'd go with the Gretsch USA Customs. Not a huge price or quality difference from the Brooklyn series(more to do with rims and sizes, maybe bearing edge? I don't recall), but more...

Re: Buying a Jazz Kit. Help Me.

I owned the Catalina jazz for a while, and it was alright. It worked well with thinner heads and in higher tunings, but the hardware and shells were just so so. Definitely wasn't meant to be tuned...

Re: Put a new snare on layaway!

Thanks!

Gruntersdad, how do you like the snare? Is it fairly sensitive, pleasant overtones, etc.?

Re: Put a new snare on layaway!

Thanks a bunch! I wanted to go with wood, but figured that a brass snare would be fun for a change, seeing as I've never owned a metal snare.

Put a new snare on layaway!

Gretsch Brooklyn Chrome over Brass, 14x5. It'll be my first really good snare, excited to get my hands on it.

Grabbed it for $300 brand new with free shipping.

Suggestions on which heads to...
