Re: Pearl Firecracker Snare

I've played it a bit. It sounds pretty cool for a drum in that price range. I've played the 10", which is what I would buy since its kind of a gimmick side snare anyway, might as well go all out. I'd...

Re: Base Drum Case

I would definitely get a case, as a slip or a drop and that 4 inch hoop is going to crack off A LOT easier than a normal hoop would (I would assume).

Post pictures if you build one. I love seeing...

Re: Distance between beater and bass drum?

Personal preference as to how much travel there is. For me, there is about 6 inches or so when the beater is resting. The closer it is the less volume you'll get unless you really stomp hard. If it...

Re: Which snare size would be best for a high poppy sound?

If you really want pop, look at the Pearl Maple Soprano snare (12 x 7). It's most often used as a side snare. I played it the other day and the guy cranked it up, and wow. It's actually borderline...

Re: Pearl Sensitone Elite Steel VS. Pork Pie Little Squealer Steel?

I have a sensitone elite (its not a steel, and its not quite as deep as you are saying). It's awesome. I love having ten lugs. You can really feel the quality in the build. Its a 300 dollar drum that...

Re: Custom Drums... whats the deal

I think this is a great point and I'd like to hear from others who have pursued this route on custom sets like the OP is talking about.

Could it be that people just really like the idea of a...

Re: Tama Ultraviolet Sparkle Pictures Help!

Hey man, I don't have any pictures on me, but I own a Starclassic Bubinga in Ultraviolet Sparkle. I actually find that the opposite is true of many of the google image search pics. In real life, the...

Re: Looking for Ska, learning material

The Toasters! Yes! THE BEST. Hands down the strongest horn section for second wave ska. Incredible horn lines and lots of diversity in their music (i.e. all the songs don't sound the same). I got...

Re: lp micro snare

I bought the microsnare for my roommate, but his is not 8 inches (his is smaller). As for volume, it will be loud enough. The real question here is whether you'd use it. He is very involved in...

Re: Piccolo Snares

I have played both of those snares, and the brass sounds better to me. I bought it a couple months ago. Sounds really good, exactly what you want/expect out of a piccolo snare. I crank the head...

Re: sjc drums

Re: Timbales vs wirelss snare

I've been looking at timbales for a little while now, never thought using a snare without the reso head on it would actually work. Did you swap the batter head to be something thinner like a clear...

Re: Where to buy single Tama SC Bubinga tom?

I think I got a great deal then. I paid 1100 for the four piece (brand new, but it was a floor model, so the rack tom heads were a little beaten). Not to mention that Tama was offering a 350 dollar...

Re: best snare under 250$??
