Re: Gretsch USA Custom with Aquarian Heads

I posted this link to my experience with my USA Custom kit and it was lost when the forum crashed a few weeks ago. I settled on Evans Level 360's as they work well with the drums.

Re: Gretsch USA Custom with Aquarian Heads

Wrong, the metal hoop of the head hits the wrap before the head is fully tensioned, at least that was my experience

Re: Gretsch USA Custom with Aquarian Heads

Great heads although they will not fit on USA Customs with a wrap.

Re: Renown and New Classic Question

You can remove the lugs/mount from the drum and there is a set screw inside the lug you loosen. Then the lug comes apart allowing you to remove the tom mount.
Also, I have to disagree with the post...

Re: Considering buying a Gretsch New Classic Bop kit

Rumor has it Gretsch is discontinuing the NC's, plenty of closeout pricing around. Great kits for sure!

Re: mapex meridian arrived!

Great to hear you are pleased with your Meridian kit! Hard to beat Meridian's at their price point.

Re: decided on a kit!!!

Good choice, Meridian Maples are very nice drums, A few years ago I bought a used Meridian Maple Manhattan Bop kit to try and then flip. Turned out to be one of my favorite kits ever. I own 12 kits...

Re: Renown vs. Meridian: Worth the Extra $500?

The kick is a 22x16 and sounds huge. My only 22" is a 70's Gretsch SSB and I run Emad batter and non ported Fiberskyn reso on both kits. They sound very close.

Re: Renown vs. Meridian: Worth the Extra $500?

I would give the Meridian kit an 8. Well worth the money and they sound great. The shells are thinner than the Renown's with a sharper bearing edge. The finish is very nice but the lugs, tom mounting...

Re: Renown vs. Meridian: Worth the Extra $500?

I own both kits and while the Meridian's are a great value, they are not in the same league as the Renown series. I would spend the extra money for the Renown kit as it is well worth it. In addition,...

Re: Pearl aluminium, or Ludwig?

if you like a dry sound consider a Blackrolite. The powder coating really mutes the overtones.
BTW- Pearl discontinued the aluminum Sensitone although you could get lucky and find one in stock

Re: Newb question: Brooklyns or classic bops

Call Maxwell's on the phone, you will be pleasantly surprised with the quote you receive. I ordered my USA Custom kit through them and was happy with the pricing.

Re: string or straps for snare wires?

Thanks for the link, couldn't find 5/8" in black at Walmart, $2.00 shipping works for me, cheaper than driving around town searching for black.
