I am seriously considering buying this kit for gigging because I LOVE the sizes in the Pop configuration (20 x15 bass drum and shallow toms) and I really like the looks of the black gold sparkle...

Considering Huge Bass Drum Port

I decided to remove the front head from my Ludwig Epic 14 x 24, and the best way I could describe it is that it SLAMS now. Yes, it did lose a lot of that low frequency, but for some reason I feel the...

14x24 and burying the beater

I just got a Ludwig Epic Pro Beat kit, and while I love the sound of a booming 14 x 24 in. drum, I have a tendency to bury the beater sometimes when I play. I AM working on that, but for now it just...

Gig That Lost Momentum!

Have any of you had a cover gig where it started off really well, but by the 3rd set people just didnt care anymore (even when you threw EVERYTHING at them)? This past weekend was that for me. In...

Re: BOOM from a 14x22

Is it true that the batter should be a little above wrinkle and the reso at least a full turn tighter?...or should they both be really tight?

Drum Dial Bonham Sound

I know, I know...It has a lot to do with production, miking, drum sizes. But I need to at least do what I can to try. I dont have huge drums like him. I have a 22x14, 16x14, 14x14, 12 x 9 and a...

New ddrums
