Re: Carpeted or ATA Racks - Opinions, please...

You're right, we have deviated a bit from the original topic... sort of. Yes, my initial intent is to lighten the load, and reduce stacking height if possible. If I am going to replace my carpeted...

Re: Carpeted or ATA Racks - Opinions, please...

But, what happens when not all cases are the same footprint sizes? Then you have metal on laminate (I think the 3/8" laminate models are better then 3/8" fibreboard), which I would think almost...

Re: Carpeted or ATA Racks - Opinions, please...

Now that I think about it, my drums literally flew the world when fiber cases were the only ones available, and you're right, nothing bad really happened. But, then again, drums are relatively light,...

Re: Carpeted or ATA Racks - Opinions, please...

Aren't flight cases 3/8" as well? How to they hold up to the abuse of air travel? Although my current band doesn't travel far, I previously flew to gigs, and may do so again at some point. So, if I...

Re: Carpeted or ATA Racks - Opinions, please...

I think you misunderstood my post. I was saying that I was wondering if ATA rack panels being only 3/8" were less protective. It almost doesn't make sense that the thinner construction is flight...

Re: Carpeted or ATA Racks - Opinions, please...

Thanks for the reply. Maybe the initial decision to go carpeted was the right one, for me. Local travel only, packed by us.

Is the ATA stuff significantly lighter than wood/carpet? Also, I can't...

Re: Carpeted or ATA Racks - Opinions, please...

Thanks for reply.

I, personally, like the look of the carpeted racks, because they tend to fade into the background, whereas the metal of the ATA cases clutters up the overall presentation of a...

Carpeted or ATA Racks - Opinions, please...

All the racks I currently have are of the carpeted variety, but wanted some opinions from those who have experience with both carpeted and ATA/Flight cases. I have 12-space, 8-space, 7-space, 6-space...

Re: Help Decide: Saturn or Starclassic B/B

FWIW, I was looking at Pearl Masters and Tama Bubingas (I always preferred Tama for everything; I even have a Tama throne and a 3-tier original Brushed Stainless Tama Power Tower) before I gambled on...

Re: Help Decide: Saturn or Starclassic B/B

Haven't read the posts on this thread, but I just got back from a Guitar Center near me. They have a gorgeous, used, natural finish Mapex Saturn down there for $674! It looked pristine, although I'll...

Re: Tama Backrest Conflicting Info

The upper shank of the bracket that the backrest post mounts to doesn't look like it's even tall enough for the backrest post to clear the seat even if you were able to fold it. I wonder if that...

Re: Tama Backrest Conflicting Info

Without a backrest, you actually have to lean forward slightly, even if you don't think you do, because all your appendages are in front of your core while playing. You lean even more when you hit...

Re: Tama Backrest Conflicting Info

Oops, two more questions, if you don't mind....

1) While it looks like the backrest is designed to accommodate people like me who lean forward a bit, in your opinion, do YOU think it has more than...

Re: Tama Backrest Conflicting Info

Thanks for the added info. As you might expect, I am also concerned with transportability, so I'm trying to get a barometer on how it would fit into hardware bags. Thus, I'm wondering if you can you...

Re: Tama Backrest Conflicting Info

Also, is there adjustment for how far forward you can position the backrest for people like me who lean slightly forward? And, how exactly do you fold the backrest down? From the pics on retailer...

Re: Tama Backrest Conflicting Info

Thanks guys. What colors are the embroidery on your backrest models? Are they the First Chair in red or white, or are they the logos that have red, white and the Tama name with scrolls?

Tama Backrest Conflicting Info

I am looking at one of these, model HTB5. I'm seeing conflicting info in that some people say they fold, others say they remove for transport. Which is is? Are there different revisions?

Re: Subwoofer Question

You're right. Killer reviews, but I can't see how a single sub that small in a plastic enclosure can sound all that good. I suspect there are too many compensations that have to be made to try and...

Re: Subwoofer Question

Thanks to the users of Carvin subs for chiming in here. Nice to hear some real-wrold feedback.

My bass player and I did some testing today, and compared the Mackie SRS1500, which is a powered 15"...

Re: Subwoofer Question

Thanks for the thoughts, BRENTCN. I actually have in my possession a friend's Mackie SRS1500 right now, and it sounds great indoors. I'm going to try it outdoors tomorrow, just to see what happens....

Yes, I realize things are completely different when outdoors. I figure all bets are off when outdoors, but outdoors, even a little help on the bottom is better than none at all, right? ;-)

Re: Subwoofer Question

I notice that Carvin also has an 18. Interestingly, the specs they list for the enclosure are exactly the same as the enclosure for the 15. Leads me to believe they made the 18 sub first, then came...

Re: Subwoofer Question

Forget about the comparison question above; how about this question instead:

I want a single sub, and I want punch. I don't want boomy bass. Would a 15" sub be better than an 18" sub in this case?...
