'68 Ludwig OBP

Hi folks,
Well I saw an ad on a local site for a set of 1968 Ludwigs in Oyster Black Pearl.
The owner thinks they are original, and the posted pics looked good. When I queeried him about any issues...

Re: Attention Tune-Bot Owners!

I have both the drumdial and the Tune-Bot, as I'm a sucker for anything new, particularly electronic.
I've come up with an interesting observation though.
In the past, while using the Drumdial,...

Re: sonor 3007

I was looking at a Sonor Special Edition today, and in a fabulous Blue Sparkle Burst finish.
The only thing that put me off though, was that although it's essentially a 3007, the 22" kick had only 8...

Re: Premier Gen-X

Yeah that's what I'm thinking too. I know the Genistas where very highly rated, and the Signias the same. So I guess in the Gen X I'd be getting the best of both.
One thing that puzzles me is the...

Premier Gen-X

Hi All,
Just wondering if anyone knows when Premier first released the Gen-X Hybrid kit?
I have a chance to buy a kit that the fellow thinks is from the late 90's. The kit looks fabulous, but when...

Re: Evans EC2 Drum heads

The term "rock pack" and "fusion pack" refers to the sizes of the drums.
The rock pack will usually include a 12", 13", 16" tom head, whereas the fusion pack will be a 10", 12" and usually a 14" tom...

Re: What series Yamaha is this?

Thanks everyone......I was kinda hoping they were the Tour Customs.......I've heard they sound great. Manu Katche has said they're maybe the best drums he's ever played.
They are 24" kick, 14"...

Re: What series Yamaha is this?

Thanks Konaboy...I was kinda thinking the same thing.
Although I'm told it is a wrap not a laquer finish. There doesn't seem to be a wealth of vintage Yamaha info available.
They look sweet, and...

What series Yamaha is this?

I saw this ad on a local site.....claiming to be 80's maple custom.
Can anyone identify this kit? Badges look like recording custom, but not the lugs.
Thanks

Re: Roger Taylor new kits

Wow, nice set-ups.
But, funny really, Roger's been with Ludwig forever it seems.
Wonder why the switch?

Re: Tuning problems... Tightening too hard?

I know exactly what you're going through.
The terms "tight" and "tighter" have absloutely NO meaning unless you have a starting point, usually a sound within your head.
The reso head is crucial I...

This may be old news, but there's a site where 23 "takes" of John Bonham drum tracks are available. Just drums, nothing else.
It really showcases the magnitude of this man's groove and pocket....

Re: 12" tom tuning problem

I had the same issue with my 10x12 tom.
Because my 10" is shallower at 8x10, I found that I had to have the reso head on the 12" at a tighter tension than that on the 10".
I think you'll find that...

Ringo ( yes again)

For all the Ringo Starr bashers out there, check out his website at www.ringostarr.com
Go to the "updates" tab, where he checks in every few weeks and leaves a small video clip message to his fans....

Re: What can i do? a bass drum tuning dilema

Yes, I agree with the "no blanket" theory!
I have been experimenting with my Delite 20" kick, and have come up with the following:
I use an Aquarian Superkick 2 as the batter head, tuned...

Re: Tre' Cool

Ok, just got the copy of the new "Bible In A Bullet" DVD by Greenday.
Verdict: Tre' is an amazing drummer. I suggest all you naysayers get a copy and watch.
What a great "show" drummer. His...

Re: Reso tuning

Wow, to me that sounds really tight. I wonder if I'm mistaken on what the term "turn" means?
If the end of one side of the "T" is say pointing "North", one turn to me would mean rotating the key...

Re: Reso tuning

That's what I figured, thanks.
It's just that I've noticed that if I apply even 1 full turn from finger tight, my reso's sound like a tympany, very tight sounding...strange?

Reso tuning

Just a (maybe silly) question.
What's the average "turn" on the drum key that you folks use when tuning reso's?
I find that on the batter heads, I only need maybe 1/4 to 1/2 a turn on the key (from...

Re: 14" tom tuning

I think my problem has been where to "fit" the 14" in the mix.
If I do a decending tom roll from 8" to 16", I'm trying to get that "melodic" flow to all the toms.
I'd actually like to get the rack...

14" tom tuning

Any advice for 14" tom tuning?
Since I got my new kit, with sizes of 8,10,12,14,16 I seem to be having a bit of a hard time as to where the 14" floor fits in.
Do I try to tune it low like the...

Tuning 10" Tom

I don't tune it particularly high in pitch, but when I get it to my liking,...
