Re: Canít hear my kick!

Tell your guitarists to turn the fuck down or find another band.

Only time you can't hear or feel the drums you're playing is when a guitarist or bassist is incapable of playing with a good tone...

Re: Tiki Drums snare building course - how deep would you go?

You sound like I did before I went. Kid in a sweet shop!

What wood are you going for. Preston probably recommended those dimensions based on getting the best out of the wood.

E-mail Preston, he's the man, that laid back he's horizontal, genuinely loves his work. (info@tikidrums.com) Would be interested to see the new workshop in Cornwall.

Re: Advice on value of monster vintage Pearl kit

My recommendation is to put it back in the time capsule and wait for concert toms to become cool again and name your price! Failing that keep it.

That's collectors condition but as others have...

Re: I need your advice please

I'm selling a kit with these on at the moment. Biggest issue with them is that you can't get 2 floor toms really close to each other as the rims mount and legs take up too much off a footprint.

Can't wait for it to get here next week!

I'm opposite ends of the scale to...

Re: Why is jazz drumming still so dominant?

I see it as where the drum kit was born and is made for. The majority of theory books we all have are written by jazz drummers.

I may be wrong but to my knowledge first rock drumming book was...

Snare for life there. Can't think of a head combo that doesn't work well, works live and in the studio. Enjoy!

Re: Mapex Saturn V on offer I'm really tempted. Saturn owners assemble!

Well I've just ordered one, managed to find the 20/12/14 in the white marine wrap for £100 less than the original one I saw so £699 for a flagship line aint bad at all. I even got a further whopping...

Re: 4 piece kit

Gotta admit I'm intrigued by the lightweight Yammy stuff. Think it came out just after I got the single braced Tama pack.

Re: Thoughts on compact Kit

Harsh but bang on the money or too much money in this case.

Tama/Ludwig/Pearl/Sonor all have cheaper better options than this kit.

Sounds like a rhythm traveller or an arbiter flats kit.

Re: I don't understand why people close mic

It gives the engineer the tools to make a better drum sound for the mix. When everyone else has recorded their bits an open sound might not be what the producer is after.

Re: Advice on cheap second hand kit for recording (70's rock/prog)

Check UK ebay for 70s premier. They came free in the post here there;s that many of em.

Elites were the top dog back then.

Try some rototoms if you want the late 70s Bruford sound

I have the Pearl Midtown. That's where my money would go again but we're talking small cheap travel kits.

Re: Thinking about dropping back down from a 26" bass drum to a 22" bass drum.

I did the same a few years back but from a 24" that is a cannon but not all that practical. It's too heavy and has curved spurs that I don't like for the same reasons as you, bouncy bass drum. It has...
