Re: Yamaha Live Custom Oak - opinions?

I bought a set of Live Customs last July 2014. Amazing kit! So much so that I am switching over everything to Yamaha! Plan this year is to buy an AMH in Vintage Natural. 10-12-14-16-20 and snare.

Re: Confusion on rolls - open or closed?

Most of the time I play rolls, it's in a concert band setting. You're in essence sustaining a quarter/eighth/half note, so I always play them closed. Unless the director instructs to do otherwise.

Re: Yamaha original Maple Custom kit - Is it worth it??

One of the best kits I ever had the chance to play was a set of Yamaha Maple Customs. If you like hanging toms for floor toms, you will not be disappointed with an MC kit. Many of the kits being sold...

yeah it's set up backwards right now. switch it so you can use the aux clamp for a splash.

DW will put a mount on the bass drum if asked, but typically they don't. This type of mount is so easy to...

Re: Help With Yamaha Drum Part

that looks like Power Tom Syndrome. I had a case of it in the 90's with my Tama Granstars. Toms could only be set up over the kick one way.

Re: I suck at power ballads.

I too used to poo-poo not just power ballads, but all types of ballads in general. They sounded boring to me.

Re: Yamaha Phoenix (PHX) Drums

This is old, so apologies for the timing. No one complained back in the day that none of the big drum makers had a 100% one wood shell, either all maple or all birch. The all maple shell trend...

I'd get in the jazz band, and get so good that the percussion ensemble teacher moves the time of the percussion ens. rehearsal so I could do both!
