Re: TOM TUNING

Maybe.
My point is that they were on the drum when you heard the sound that you like.
They were definitely a factor in that sound, so it would stand to reason that reinstalling them would at least...

Re: TOM TUNING

If the Ludwig reso's were "Weathermaster MEDIUM" heads, that's probably part of your problem.
Those were THIN weight heads, similar to Remo Diplomat.
You now have G1 on the reso side. G1 is similar...

Re: SNARE TUNING

well, in that case, yeah, you're going to hear the buzz.
I guess all I was saying was don't sweat it too much.

Re: SNARE TUNING

Dignan,

You didn't mention anything about adjusting the snare tension, so I'd like to address that.
With the snares turned on, loosen them until they get "rattly".
Then slowly tension them up...

A little late to the party, but since this thread comes up pretty high on a Google search for "Premier Signia Marquis", I'd like to actually answer the question that was originally posed.

Re: TOM TUNING

Sometimes big floor toms can have a "rumble" to their sound.
What you just did is also he cure for that.
Another thing you might have tried is to get a self-muffled head, like an Aquarian Studio-X,...

Re: TOM TUNING

Yeah the heads you just mentioned are all thicker than the Super 2's.
You'll most likely be happier with the Emperors.

You might be noticing the differences between a thicker head and a thinner head.
What did you have on your APK's before?
The Super 2 is what used to be called the Double Thin.

Not me, but we used to share a drum forum (may again, in the future).
Nothing "earth shattering", but I like his feel and touch.

Re: Help me identify Premier set

No, I don't. I am now also noticing those shells are slightly deeper, and thus the lugs are slightly longer, than the kit shown earlier in the thread.
The differences in shell length alone would've...

Just curious about something...

When explaining about playing in 3 (aka "Jazz-Waltz time"), how many of you reference "My Favourite Things", when putting it in terms of an actual song?

Re: Best Period of Yamaha Recording Customs?

Did your 80's RC kit have the short floor tom legs that the other models of Yamaha drums had back then?

Re: ...for the jazz cats ...

Sorry Philo, my mistake.
There were at least two separate "...Village Vanguard" albums. You might be thinking of the second one.

Philo,

Before Interstellar Space there was Meditations (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCek60uzvF0).
Before that, the classic A Love Supreme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4H07OztoKgE).

Re: TOM TUNING

Like I said in my prior reply, if the changes have to be that large, then your best bet is to get another drum that'll fit in between them.

Well, if it were me, I think I would attack the 12. Drop its tuning.
How much? Til' it sounds "right" (to you) in the 10-12-16 combo.

Re: TOM TUNING

Matt,

If you're worried that the difference between the 12 and the 16 is too great, I'll tell you, it'll be just fine.
I once had a 4-piece kit that was 20/12/16 and worked just fine.
Sure, its...
