Re: My first drumkit for 300 (420$)

Agreed! i just picked up a used 5 piece(2 up 2 down no snare) Keller birdseye maple kit (supposedly used by the Drummer of Switchfoot) for $495 which isn't to far past your budget!

Re: Wrapping OVER a lacquer

Thanks guys!

Bob- I tried using a plastic duotang/florder thing and as i expected i noticed no difference in sound or sustain for that matter (granted the wrap will probably be a bit bigger)....

Re: Wrapping OVER a lacquer

Sounds like tape would be my best bet for now!

If i ever decide to wrap drums later on in my life i may try the contact cement but for now, tape is a much easier way for me!!

Re: Wrapping OVER a lacquer

From what i have gathered on their site they use Hi-Bond tape? is that the fastbond you were referring to? or is another thing i should add on top of the Hi-Bond tape?

I will definitely do my best...

Re: Wrapping OVER a lacquer

Ok thanks bob!

Was worried if i wrapped over the lacquer it might just kill the entire ustain on the drum, i doubt i will notice a big difference!

Wrapping OVER a lacquer

Hi guys quick question:

Re: Looking for suggestions on shell kit

Very true, although i would try getting some used cymbals because you probably want to buy some new heads too, which can run up to $200.



Really? i'm looking into placing an order on platinums...

Re: Looking for suggestions on shell kit

Personally i would also look into PDP Platinum's or Sonor 3007's.

You can score a sweet deal on either of those on eBay.

Craigslist is also a great place to find gear!

Cheers,
Brady

Re: Need opinions on set-ups

Hmm, nice point Mike. I suppose to get a fat tone out of a 14" floor you'd have to tune it pretty low. I'm having a tough time picking hopefully i'll get a chance to test out one of the set-ups...

Re: Need opinions on set-ups

Re: Drumkit Profit Margins

Oh great, not only is this a heated topic on buisness and peoples rights it's now a heated topic on religion!

Why don't we make some remarks on child labor and politics while we're at it.

Re: Need opinions on set-ups

Thanks jodgey!
It's not that i don't want a 22" it's that the seller i'm buying the drums from doesn't have a 22" bass except in some 6pc set-ups which he doesn't want to split up (and i don't want...

I believe Sonor 3007's would be nice step up for you.

They are going for $650 on ebay in 6-piece set ups.

Re: Bass drum volume

would it be possible to get a deep bass thud out of a 20x16 bass drum? a thud suitable for pop and soft rock genres?
