Re: Jazz/Funk Snare Help!

My current ride is a 22" Paiste Signature Dark Energy Mark II ride, and it's great for jazz, funk, and for many types of rock (although I wouldn't use it for hard rock or metal stuff, as it's not a...

Re: Premier Drums

They make some great drums, but new ones are hard to find in the U.S. right now as they apparently have been having distribution problems. I had what I think was called an Artist Heritage kit (which...

Re: Ludwig Centennial Drumkits

I think you'll be happy with that kit. The Centennial snare is fine, but if you can get a Supra for just a bit more, get the Supra. That's a snare that'll last you a lifetime of playing. Post some...

Allegra or Dunnett Snares...any experiences?

I've narrowed down my next snare to one of two--an Allegra maple with wood hoops or a Dunnett Stainless Steel. They're both great snares, although the Dunnett is about $100 more. Any experience...

Re: Pacific Platinum OR Ludwig Centennial?

The cheapest place I've seen to get a Centennial is from Shane (who posted below) at www.justdrumsonline.com. I think they're even having a 10% off sale on them. Plus, it's an independent shop with...

Re: Tama SC Performer B/B or Mapex Saturn!

Well, you could hardly go wrong with either one, now, could you? Those are both great kits. I've owned two different Starclassic B/B's and was thoroughly impressed with both of them. I haven't...

Re: What Drums intermediate / semi / pro.

If you want a Mapex Saturn, there's not reason not to get a Mapex Saturn. Those are great drums for a pub drummer or a pro like Greg Bissonette. That's a pro-level kit, but it would sound good for...

Re: Todd Sucherman here!

Todd--Nice job on the Colbert Report, too. I did a double-take when I noticed that was you behind the kit. You were much better than "Stumpy" Pepys!

Re: Drummy stuff in China?

The Mapex factory is located in Tianjin, which is less than an hour from Beijing. I'd be surprised if they have factory tours, but, if you know anyone local, you can probably arrange one without too...

Re: Todd Sucherman here!

Wondering if you can give me some advice--I'll try to keep this short.

Started playing using traditional grip as a kid, took ten years off from drumming (college, getting started in life, etc.),...

Re: Sonor Drums

I saw that same thing, Gruntersdad. Couldn't believe it--or resist. I ordered an S-Classix. Although prefer to buy from independents, this is literally half the price that it's being advertised...

Re: Question about traditional grip

Thanks, Sardaukar--I'll check out those videos.

I see you're from Finland. I've been there a few times and loved it. Mostly doing work in Turku but had a chance to go to Helsinki, Tampere, and...

Re: Question about traditional grip

I appreciate that, Ian. That's definitely helpful to me as I contemplate making the switch back to where I started. I'm still waiting to get the wrist movement back to where it was, but, as I said,...

Re: Question about traditional grip

Thanks, I did see that. I thought my question was a little different, plus it seems a little heated for me. I just play for fun. I was just wondering what I might gain from traditional grip.

Re: Question about traditional grip

Hope I'm not hijacking your thread, but this seems related.

For kit, what would be the advantage of using traditional vs. matched grip? When I first learned to play, it was traditional as part of...

Re: Mapex Meridian Maple VS Mapex Saturn?

That was such a great deal, it's already gone. Trust me, I checked and was ready to buy. Meridians are fine, but the Saturn line is in a different league altogether. If you can afford a Saturn,...

Re: Advice On Next Set Please

Definitely a good deal on that Starclassic kit. Now, you can turn your leftover money around and invest it in the stock market. On second thought, just keep it under your mattress.

Re: Acrolite internal muffler

No worries--I noticed in the first post you mentioned "is this something a metal drum needs" and thought that was the mistake. Anyway, I think nowadays you can do a lot of the muffling in the heads...

Re: Gretsch Renown Snare

I had a Gretsch Renown kit that came with a snare. It was the 4-piece one-up/one-down kit with a 7x14 snare. The snare was okay, but not my favorite, so I traded it back in to use a different...

Re: $1000 to spend, which do I get

Still seems like a lot. It's hard to believe he actually paid that much for a Pro M originally even with all the cymbals and extras. That $2500 sounds more like a list price rather than an actual...

Re: Which Is The Better Kit?

You can get a Renown kit in mod sizes (20x22, 9x12, 16x16, w/a 7x14 snare) on closeout right now for less than $1,000. I think they're discontuing these sizes, certainly not the series. You can add...
