Re: Help a Dad out buying used set for son.

The worst advice given to the Dad on this thread was to not buy that deal.
I hope he didn't listen to the naysayers. It's clearly an upgrade from the tiny black kit. For $400 it was a steal...

Re: Help a Dad out buying used set for son.

Both of those are decent deals. What is his current kit? Cheaper drums are easier to make sound a little better with heads but cheap cymbals are as is.
So unless his drums are falling apart I'd...

Re: Vintage Slingerland

Well congratulations that looks to be pre 1959 Slingerland Gene Krupa Sound King. 1 ply maple. The strainer looks to be replaced from its original but its in great shape for being in a barn. Wow....

Re: Why is jazz drumming still so dominant?

Exact opposite where I live. Blues is not very popular. Many people like blues, but it is not the most popular music to put on for owners of bars and clubs. Actually classic rock or pop is the norm....

Re: Bo's last name

Re: Premier Royal Ace Info Needed.

Perhaps you've tried the same question on the DFO forum? A lot more old timers who buy/collect/espouse only in vintage stuff (though mostly USA drums).

Re: more info about 17" floor tom?

Its only 12 deep, so would look odd with legs.
Could drill it for a Keystone or similar mount system and hang it off cymbal stand. An Atlas mount would not work for center lugs.

Re: Should I?

Are you sure the Tama is any lighter? I see a lot of metal and die cast hoops, unlike the Yammie.
Most of the metal I see in the pics weighs more than any change in numbers of plies.

Re: The 8 lug snare drum

Re: Metal bass drum hoops - not so bad

Nice. Metal hoops on MIJ stencil kits say 'cheap' to everybody but actually make some of those MIJ bass drums sing. A lot of MIJ kits have some nice bass drum tones. Metal bass drum hoops get a bad...

You remove the 'hunk of crap' (tom mount) and then its not a bit harder to get in your drum bag.

Re: Doubles around the kit

Why not just work more on those two surfaces, if they are the ones causing difficulty. One could work hours on just doubles on hats or between hats and snare.
