Re: worth it?

He sold his kit, so he has nothing to play. He won't have the patience to wait and save some bucks. He said 'its like a Candy Store' looking at all of the entry level kits.

Re: most minimalist kit I've seen!

What, no armpit action? Kinda reminds me of clowning around in 6th grade :)

Re: worth it?

Exactly. 'Hey my friend wants to buy my $600 kit. I'm so stoked, since I can go out and buy another $600 kit.' I think meat is playing around. Surely this can't be real; it must be a farce.

Re: 1987 Yamaha Tour Custom

I don't know if I would try to stain over the existing stain. Maybe try some Tung Oil. Keep in mind, if you do something to the hoops, they will probably become darker than the drum shell. You could...

They look good. You'll have to post some more pics when they are all set up. Congrats!

Re: 1987 Yamaha Tour Custom

I remember that MD issue. Andy used a classic 4 piece rig. Danny Gottlieb played a mixed kit of natural Tours and Recording drums, in the 80's with Pat Metheny. A fun fact: the satin natural Tours...

Re: 1987 Yamaha Tour Custom

The older Yamaha Tours were good drums. And this is a good find if they are in nice shape. The natural finish is still desired. However, they don't sell for much money. I would try to get the price...

Re: Yamaha Drums

I just found this lengthy video which nicely demonstrates the Hybrids and gives you a good look at the Orange Sparkle finish. Too bad its in Japanese, as the guy spends a lot of time with these. He...

Re: Yamaha Drums

Sure, but there was a lot of anticipation. Then they came out and not much since. I think Yamaha spoiled us with all of the finishes and options for the MCA's and BCA's. What can you say about the...

Re: Yamaha Drums

That one's not bad price either. I wonder how these are selling overall. I just don't see much excitement over these, here or elsewhere.

I don't know how in the world stain could leak through a...

Re: Looking for help choosing a pro level drum kit

There are pro level kits and there are pro level kits that are really expensive. I consider looking at prices of up to $6500 pretty expensive, depending on how the kit is going to be used, which...

Re: Yamaha Drums

Yeah, you're right. I didn't even notice the title stated cymbals included. Even better. Someone who's interested could get it clarified, since they aren't mentioned in the listing.

Re: Which is/was heavier - Sonor Designer or Yamaha RC?

I've never really had issue with RC weight, except for the kick. I remedied that by getting a different case. I used to lug the thing with an Anvil fiber case. There is just no good way to carry...

Re: New performance series candy apple red saphire blue snare

Nice. I think the contrasting snare color is cool and kind of patriotic in color. The 2 sized kick drums makes perfect sense to me. There is a nice array of drums that will lend itself to a variety...

Re: Looking for help choosing a pro level drum kit

I think you should reconsider your plan. When I went to college, I didn't study music, but I did play in the top jazz ensemble. That's when I started to meet serious musicians and as a result, the...

Re: SUPRAPHONIC WOOD HOOPS

I haven't tried wood hoops on a Supra, but I have used them on other snares. I really didn't like them at all. First, it makes a 14" snare a 15" foot print. If you swap out snares frequently, its...

Re: Multiple Kit Owners, Show Your Favorite Kit

Really nice black pearl kits, guys. My first kit was a MIJ stencil kit in black pearl, so I have a soft spot for that wrap.

I own a handful of nice kits and love them all. Saying which kit I would...

Re: Name that drum..

It depends on why you want it. If you are looking for a quality drum, this is not it. If you are just looking for something fun to do, to see what you can do with it, might be ok. I wouldn't pay over...

Re: Incredibly beautiful Japanese Aria drum kit find!

As far as I'm concerned, there is absolutely no debate as to what these are. I started drumming in the 60's as a young boy. This was the height of the MIJ stencil kit phenomenon. That's 100% what...

Re: Yamaha Drums

I've never had a problem with the Yamaha spurs (except for the early version) and actually like the keybolt design. The first incarnation of these spurs didn't have keybolts. When they first used...

Re: Considering a new kit

I haven't played the Live Custom, but I have an original Yamaha Oak Custom kit. The Oaks are a bit more aggressive sounding than either Tour Customs or RC's. For me, that's a good thing. It gives me...

Re: Considering a new kit

If you are looking to stay around $2000, I don't think the new RC's will be in that price range. Here's an older Recording Series kit with 22x14, 12 13 16 in natural finish. These technically aren't...
