Re: Personal Choices?

Here's proof that "it ain't what you play, it's the way that you play it," as Magenta stated. Benny Greb playing a toy kit. Notice at 2:23 he says, "that one actually sounds great!" referring to...

Re: Trading DW performance for Ludwig Keystone? Terrible Idea?

Bonzobilly's comment nailed it. I feel the same way about the Keystones. They have the sound I'm looking for and the sound I hear in my head when I think about drums, which is pretty much all the...

Re: For anyone that may have an unfulfilled order with Midwest Percussion.

Happy to report that I was able to get my money back after contacting my bank and taking the necessary steps. I'm hoping it worked out for others too. Sounds like they just shut down and left a lot...

Re: For anyone that may have an unfulfilled order with Midwest Percussion.

Great!! I've been doing business with them for nearly 20 years. I ordered a brand new Ludwig LM404C snare on 04/12/13 that was "in stock." Ludwig apparently had 2 of them available. One was to be...

Re: Ludwig Atlas mounts?

You could always order them with the classic mounts unless you're dead set on getting the the drums with the new Atlas mounts. I personally don't like the looks of the new Atlas mounts and would...

Re: Older Mapex Saturns no longer available

Interesting, Dre25. I'll have to check that out. I've done business with DCP before. Thanks for the info. Rupps Drums was the company that told me they were discontinued.

Older Mapex Saturns no longer available

This may have been mentioned somewhere in the forum already but I didn't see it. I looked into ordering a Mapex Saturn 16X20 kick (transparent black) and was told that Mapex has discontinued all...

Re: Which Bop Kit?

I ended up going a different route. I just grabbed a Gretsch New Classic bop kit practically new with only about 45 minutes of play on it in the natural finish. It also included Protection Racket...

Re: Which Bop Kit?

My main kit is a Ludwig Classic Maple..8X12 (or sometimes 9X13), 16X16, and 14X22. Love it!!! I could use it for everything.

The bop kit would be a second kit and would be used for practice,...

Re: Ludwig horror stories?

I've had delays with Ludwig due to holidays and stuff like that. I've always dealt with Midwest Percussion or Drumcenter of Portsmouth. Both have taken care of any issues. I just had a 8X12 add-on...

Re: RIP Dennis Stauffer

This is sad. I bought a Phattie kit back in 2004. I spoke with Dennis a few times on the phone. He was always very very nice. Although I don't play Phattie any longer, I've always followed...

Re: 24" x 14" or 16" kickdrum

There's so many different threads with similar questions about depth, diameter, ported, not ported, head selection, etc. If you're like me then you probably researched what some of your favorite...

Mapex Black Panther Phat Bob

Anyone have any experience with the Mapex Black Panther Phat Bob that would like to give an opinion on it? Can you still get a good crack out of it even though it's 7X14? I'd go play one at the...

Re: Votes Requested: Ludwig vs. GMS

I have the Classic Maples and wouldn't trade them for any kit. I love the sound of them. I think they sound better than DW's, Pearl Reference, Tama Starclassic, etc. I've also received the most...

Hopefully this is an easy question for someone to answer. If I buy a Ludwig Classic Maple drum off ebay that has the classic lugs on it, can I just buy the mini-classic lugs and swap them out? Or...

Re: 20 x 16 Bass Drum Sound

Re: Pearl Reference Drum Kits

I have played the Pearl Reference kits live probably 7-8 times. I did not walk away thinking that was the best kit I ever played or anything like that. In fact, over the years I've determined that...
