Re: New Pearl masters MCX = Horrible!

That was one of my Collector's kits. It's long gone too. It and the others were short stacks.
I do find to this day, it take a while to seat the heads and get them locked in. Just as you have...

Re: New Pearl masters MCX = Horrible!

I waited 6 months for them to come in from the NAMM showing. Got a complete set of satin hardware with it. I was a music store employee so I got a ridiculous deal on all of it. Just glad to walk...

Re: New Pearl masters MCX = Horrible!

It was the whole kit. Even the bass drum was lifeless. I came to realize that re-rings, sharp edges, diecast hoops and sustain-killing Opti's were all factors.

At the time I had a DW Collectors in...

Re: New Pearl masters MCX = Horrible!

OP, I could have written that word for word in 2002 when I received my dream of an MMX in Ocean Sparkle/satin (1 of 20) in 10/12/14/22.

It got so bad for me that I replaced the Opti's with RIMS...

Re: Todd Sucherman here!

I'll take this chance to thank Todd and relay another story.

Years ago, you came to Titletown WI for a drum clinic. Naturally, I had to come and see you in person (sans Styx of course).

Your...

Re: Why do the wooden hoops on this snare have flat straight sections?

I didn't notice on first glance that the snares run opposite the flat side. Huh?

Re: Why do the wooden hoops on this snare have flat straight sections?

Those should be located at the strainer and buttplate as they allow clearance for the throwoff action. Looks like an install fail.

You should be. Any gig is a good gig.

I'm playing an Irish bar in Door County (Wisconsin) tomorrow in an all-day bash for St Patrick's Day. And it will be near 60 degrees. So excited!! Not to...

Re: Technical playing and grooving

As a self-described groove player (it's on my license plates afterall), I really prefer to lock in and just lay it down. I like that role, I relish that role (roll?) LOL

Last week my bass player...

Re: More Ludwig Signet porn

If they offered Signet in any of the traditional sparkle, oyster or onyx finishes, I'd probably get one. But then I'd want portable bop sizes too. And well under a grand.

Having played them...

Re: So...where do you keep your spare sticks?

I used a chip clip 4 stick holder on the hi hat stand for many years. I never found it to be ideal.

I use the Stick Ark now and love it. Four sticks within easy reach and with enough separation...

Re: Brand Loyalty

So, when our favorite drummers switch brands after years of playing and pitching one brand, we should acknowledge that it is acceptable for them to do so, right?

Re: Brand Loyalty

I'm an odd duck because I don't have any loyalty towards drums and to some extent hardware, but I am a true-blue Sabian guy since 1982. I played them before Chester and Phil did!! And through the...

Re: Help needed to find gretsch series (pics)

I'm gonna say that looks like an early Catalina Stage based on Gretsch's archive photo of that series. Which also looks to be an exact match to your kit.

Re: Does playing covers change you?

In my youth (and ignorance) I played original metal and hard rock with friends. We thought we were pure and undiluted, unlike the tripe that was popular at the time. I had a watershed moment and...

Re: Length to Diameter

That's a killer bass drum, as you pointed out. I had the same one. Don't do it. I can't imagine what you would gain. Plus, you didn't really emphasize what you're hoping to achieve. Just a bad more...

Re: Bison Drums

I know a guy with a Bison snare. It sounds divine.

Second, the Phattie (Dennis) post just sent a shiver up my spine.
(I wasn't here in 2011) I enjoyed his drums. RIP

Re: Gretsch Broadkasters Vintage Build; Floor Tom Legs Rattle Against Rezo Hoop

I stand corrected. Clear tubing is ideal. Forgot you'd need longer screws when adding more gasket.

And everyone bags on Ludwig for lug splay...geez :)

Re: Gretsch Broadkasters Vintage Build; Floor Tom Legs Rattle Against Rezo Hoop

I would be inclined to add a rubber shim gasket of my own design before I would start dipping the hoops.

Small sheet of 1/4 rubberized material should do the trick. Pretty simple to use the mount...

There is a range of lug holes Atlas will work with. Best to check measurements first on any kit that someone hasn't personally put them on. Tama for instance. I do know of...

Re: Anyone own of have experience with Atlas Mounting hardware?

The answer is yes. And there are some good threads on this too.

And the other answer is yes, do it. I would totally retrofit kits with them.
