Re: Recording technique

I usually record Vocal and Guitar to a click as a throw away track.

Then record Drums. If the drummer is good at playing with a click and they are synced I'll leave the click in when I record the...

Re: Where to demo drums in Dallas

Lone Star is more of a warehouse with a small shop. Like plano said, they do a lot of big shows and I bet you hit them at one of those times. Every time I've been there, they are usually really...

Re: DW Performance vs Yamaha Absolute Maple

I have the DW Performance Kit and I like it. For what you want to do that's prob what you should go for. However just to confuse things, I must say if I had the choice I think I'd prob go with the...

If your wanting to save some money I'd suggest going with like a Tama Silverstar Birch or a Yamaha Stage Custom Birch and call it a day.

Re: Best drum kit for studio

The best one is the one that's tuned correctly.

Re: Do you take cymbals/bass-pedal to a venue that have a drumkit?

First I'm a big guy, so I always try and take my throne. I've seen too many of those really cheap tiny thrones out there.

Sticks are always a must. I'm pretty picky about my bass drum pedal,...

Re: Are endorsement deals worth it?

This is what I was alluding to as well, though I didn't want to name companies these were some of the ones that came to mind.

However, in my opinion that's what the OP has to weigh. Is it more...

Re: DW Collectors - Insight Please?

This might be an unpopular opinion, but I actually preferred the DW Performance series to the Collectors series. I don't know if it was the smaller lugs or the HVX shells, but that's what got my...

Re: Are endorsement deals worth it?

There are many types of "endorsements" out there. Rarely does any of them include free gear. Most of the good endorsements just tend to come, they aren't ones you seek out. There are a number of...

Re: Need acoustic/electric drum buying advice!

Another option is the DDrum Hybrid ($699), then you could pick up whatever brain you wanted.

Re: Some indie shops not trying hard enough?

That's some of my concern about shopping at some of these places. How old is the product they are selling? Has it been on the shelf for years and years.

Re: Some indie shops not trying hard enough?

I've seen good and bad stores. I've seen the stores that give "Buy one get one free" guitar strings and drum sticks but they charge MSRP so even with the bogo it's still a lot more expensive than...

Re: Premier Genista at Musicians Friend

I really considered it, and tell you the truth if I could have managed the combination I really wanted I would have.

At that price, if you don't like it I'd just hold on to it for 6 months until...

Re: Where does a MX kit fall in the PDP line?

I think when they came out the MX was the lower line followed by the CX and then the LX. Only being that the MX was satin finished. Same shells and hardware. PDPs are good kits, but horrid resale,...

8 x 7", 10 x 8" and 12 x 9" rack toms
14 x 12" and 16 x 14" floor toms
14 x 5" snare

Re: Drum price question

I think that's way over priced. I'd say $500-600 or so is probably closer.

Drums, especially lower level drums don't hold their value well. Especially not older lines. Face it beginner drums...

Re: What Wood Is This? - Billy Hyde Content

It's not luan, doesn't have the right grain or color for that, though some of the inner plys look like they could be. Might be poplar but it doesn't seem to have the mineral streaking. The...

Re: Premier Genista at Musicians Friend

I think it's just a blow out of old stock thing, Musicians Friend does that from time to time. Looking at the Premier website it seems that Premier has actually discontinued doing the Genista line...

Re: First acoustic set.

Like are you having trouble getting your bass AND your toms in tune? Or are you having trouble...

If you just want the double bass, just pickup another X7 bass drum.

Re: Drum Kits - Brands and "Top of the Line" Gear

+1.

The thing about high end sets is making sure you know what you want, because as you head up in the lines you have more and more customizability. Know what woods you like, what sizes, even...

Re: Anyone for a fight? Yamaha fans :)

Only time will tell if we have a Zildjian/Sabian type thing going on here. Or if Sakae will even continue on. I don't think Yamaha will have too much trouble, they are just too large of a company.
