Re: Aluminum Die Cast Hoops

You can order them from any dealer (kind of pricey though). I sold a couple pairs myself a few months ago.

I had them on my Ludwig Supraphonic. They worked well, but I prefer the regular steel or...

Re: Renown Option Toms - Looking for alternatives.

What size drums are on the kit currently? You should be able to get the 14" tom from Gretsch for a bit less than $1,000, more like $800 if you go through a dealer like Interstate. I think that is...

Re: worth it?

Why do people waste their time with crappy drums? Either buy used, or save up to buy a great set of drums that will sound great and last you. Every single set you've asked about is complete crap or...

Where was he playing? One-nighters in Antarctica followed by a week in Tierra del Fuego?

Re: worth it?

A kit to "tour with"? Tama Imperialstar drums to TOUR WITH? Who is he "touring" with? The Ice-Capades? Some street performers? Something isn't right....

Re: worth it?

With all this talk of birch shells, allow me to interject that I prefer Maple or Bubinga over Birch. Silverstars do sound nice though, I must admit.

Re: Bass Drum Dimensions

The biggest difference between different diameters of bass drums is going to be how they feel to play. The beater is going to react quite differently on an 18" bass drum vs. a 26" bass drum. Attack...

Re: Looking for help choosing a pro level drum kit

Why? Are you already setup with a trust fund, or do you just plan to live a life of poverty?

If it's the former, don't rule out Gretsch drums. Their USA Custom line is very affordable if you opt...

Re: Need parts for Gretsch Lightning strainer

I had a similar problem. I just emailed Gretsch customer service and they sent me out a few spares. In the meantime, I went to a local hardware store and bought some countersunk screws in stainless...

Re: RANT: Disappointed in Sonor

Protecting the hoop? From what? If someone is concerned about slight impressions caused by the claw pressing into the wood, they should just line the claws with a piece of Dr Scholl's moleskin patch.

Re: RANT: Disappointed in Sonor

I don't understand how these Sonor claws are designed. Are you saying that there is a plastic part that sits inside the metal part? What is the point of that?

Re: Simon Philips playing jazz

Low tuned toms? Simon's toms are tuned way tighter than you think, and Tony's toms were tensioned into the stratosphere.

I own the DVD of this video, and the sound is incredible all 'round. I also...

Re: Beautiful drum kit configurations

Ergonomically speaking, two floor toms are a bad idea when it comes to the human spine (3 floor toms even crazier - I don't care if Tony made it work). If you need more toms, it would be smarter to...

Re: Do you all tune your snare reso heads tighter than the batter?

Actually, it's the exact opposite. The tighter the snare-side head is, the less snare buzz you'll get.



The tighter the snare-side head is, the higher the frequency required to induce...

Re: SuperSensitive get snares OFF?

I had a Ludwig Supersensitive snare back in the late 70s, and it was one of the best snares I've ever owned/played. The only reason I got rid of it was because it was so expensive to replace the...

Re: Sonor Ascent vs Dw Design

Drums aren't manufactured for specific genres of music. They're designed to sound pleasing when struck with a stick. To suggest that you wouldn't be able to play progressive rock on Gretsch drums...

Re: Double Bass Drum Tone Uneven

It doesn't matter if they sound identical or not. In fact, it would be pretty much impossible, unless both beaters were the exact distance from center. Even with two bass drums, you're never going to...
