Re: Gretsch Catalina Ash.. pro or no?

Gretsch's 'Catalina' lines are mid-level kits, not pro. However, like PFOG said, that doesn't mean there's anythng wrong with how they sound. If you like them enough and they're in your price...

Re: New kit help!!!

Here's a couple of recommendations:

1) BUY USED! As others have already noted, you can get a much better quality used kit than a new kit for the same price. Same goes for cymbals and hardware. ...

Re: 20" or 22" kick

Not sure if these posts are helping or adding to your confusion since there's so many promoters of both sizes, but hopefuly this will help make your decision easier. The issues at hand here are...

Re: Sonor S Classix or custom???

Tough call brother. The S Classix are awesome from what I've heard, but the idea of having a custom kit is tempting too. If you decide to go custom, I'll suggest you check out Unix and TRS drums as...

Re: Help Aydee buy a snare?

Hey Aydee,

Looking strictly at what you described you were looking for in the sound, my BEST recommendation would probably be to go with a custom-built stave snare from a company like Unix. From...

Re: Die Cast hoop on bottom of snare and snare wires/straps?

SOOOOOOO many things affect the way a snare drum sounds, so I'll keep my comment limited to the hoops.

Here's the good news.....a good triple-flanged hoop should only run you about $20 or so, so...

Re: Tour Custom or Sonor 3007

Being a Yammie guy my opinion is a bit biased, but honestly, both kits are very good and certainly worth you checking them out for yourself. You can't go wrong either way. That being said, Yamaha's...

Re: Final Kit

Putting in my vote for the Yammies - and yes it's a biased vote since I own a BCA myself. They really are fantastic though. Our Recording Engineer marvels at their sound every time I go to the...

Re: Sonor Vs. My Kit

I would think the move is more lateral than anything. If you'd rather have Sonor from a brand-preference standpoint, then try to work out a trade for the Sonors or just buy them and sell your Peace...

Re: Yamaha Drums

Hey Brad,
Sorry, I just saw your post now.

Really?!?!?! I hope not!!! What store was this? Are you sure it was a BCA snare?

I paid $485 for this drum at Long & McQuade. Just Drums and...

Re: Which snare??

If you can, go try them and see what sounds best to your ears.

I generally don't like the sound of most steel or aluminum snares, but I very much like brass and copper snares so either of the...

Re: 2 Kits: Opinions

+1 to this. And you could substitute any higher-end kit for the Renowns if they are in a similar price range, but they are really nice drums!

This is unless of course you really feel it essential...

Re: Help with affordable Maple kit

Excellent choice!
I didn't have a chance to read or respond to this thread until after you bought the kit, but if I had, I def. would have recommended the PDP simply because of all the freebies...

Re: SNARE TUNING

As a quick tip, get the thinnest snare-side resonant head possible to accomplish this. As far as I know the Remo Diplomat snare-side and Evans Hazy 200 are the thinnest available. I'm sure Aquarian...

Re: Which Puresound wire is more sensitive?

You are correct. It is intended to reduce sympathetic buzz, but in doing so helps promote note-separation, and indirectly this also helps sensitivity. I stress the word "indirectly" here.

Re: Offset snare strands

+1. I also use the Equalizer 16's and they really are fantastic, especially for studio work because sympathetic buzz in practically nonexistant with these.

Re: Tama Artwood Snare drums (info, help please!)

Re: Die cast question

When it comes to drums, and music in general, words that have a rigid definition like "never" and "always" don't really apply. Words like "sometimes", "usually", and "mostly" are a lot more accurate...

Re: Which Puresound wire is more sensitive?

If sensitivity is what you're looking for then I think this is a great idea. Using a 200 weight snare-side head like the Diplomat should get you the results you're after...especially if coupled with...
