Re: Gong-tastic!

Yes, I'll try some tennis racket string at a sporting goods store for this weekend's gig.
If I end up buying this one, I'll check out that eBay store.

Re: Gong-tastic!

OK cool - but no chance in hell of finding that locally!
The music store I rented it from was using tie wraps as well.

Re: Gong-tastic!

Ok - anybody know what to use to hang the gong? I'm using some heavy duty plastic tie wraps right now - seems wrong.
Leather twine? Steel cable? Shoelaces? Bungee cords? Kite string?

Re: Gong-tastic!

Kinda in the same boat as I'm only renting this one. It's a reasonable price, about $600 new.
The best prices I've seen are the Dream gongs - $500 for a 28" Chau gong. Haven't heard any though.

There you are!

Yup, maybe rent to own…

That's it exactly; it feels good just knowing it's there. My bandmate asked "So musically - where would you use this, on what songs…?" I said I have no...

Gong-tastic!

Throughout the gigging year, I play a 4 piece kit with all of the bands I play with, sometimes adding a side snare to make it a 5 piece.
Once a year, I get bored with that and decide to go NUTS and...

Re: Maple kit alternative to yamaha MCA? Jazz/funk

Hi there.
Given the parameters you've laid out so far - you like MCA (why don't you buy MCA ??) , you're considering vintage stuff but want more modern, you want drums that are a bit more on the...

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

The Yamaha version of those multilayer wood hoops have only one flat section, and it is meant to go where the strainer is, leaving room for the throw off's lever to clear the hoop if it is long.

Re: Yamaha Drums

Thanks! The finish is very difficult to photograph. I had to process the pictures a bit (they were too dark) but that is pretty accurate representation of what they look like in person.

Re: Ever have a drums finish sway you away from purchasing it?

Yeah, I bought a bop set on blowout price for $599. Amazing drums for the money…but I couldn't get over the finish. It's not that I thought they were ugly - they were just so polarizing! I don't play...

Re: Ever have a drums finish sway you away from purchasing it?

Yes, absolutely. A drum's finish has certainly scared me off buying a kit, many , many times. With so many good choices out there today, there is no reason to buy a drum that you can't stand to look...

Re: Different material for gaskets ?

I had a modern Supra with rubber gaskets. Took all the rubber off - it was a really different drum without those gaskets, in a good way. God rid of the Supra though, opting for an Acrolite.

Re: Polishing drums

+1,000,000
Love it. Either GT65 or GT66 (I think it's the same stuff, marketed at guitar or drums)

I go through about 4 bottles of this a year.
Cleaner, polish, thin/light wax all in one....
