Re: Renown and New Classic Question

You can remove the lugs/mount from the drum and there is a set screw inside the lug you loosen. Then the lug comes apart allowing you to remove the tom mount.

Re: Considering buying a Gretsch New Classic Bop kit

Rumor has it Gretsch is discontinuing the NC's, plenty of closeout pricing around. Great kits for sure!

Great to hear you are pleased with your Meridian kit! Hard to beat Meridian's at their price point.

Re: Renown vs. Meridian: Worth the Extra $500?

The kick is a 22x16 and sounds huge. My only 22" is a 70's Gretsch SSB and I run Emad batter and non ported Fiberskyn reso on both kits. They sound very close.

Re: Renown vs. Meridian: Worth the Extra $500?

I would give the Meridian kit an 8. Well worth the money and they sound great. The shells are thinner than the Renown's with a sharper bearing edge. The finish is very nice but the lugs, tom mounting...

Re: Renown vs. Meridian: Worth the Extra $500?

I own both kits and while the Meridian's are a great value, they are not in the same league as the Renown series. I would spend the extra money for the Renown kit as it is well worth it. In addition,...

Re: Pearl aluminium, or Ludwig?

if you like a dry sound consider a Blackrolite. The powder coating really mutes the overtones.
BTW- Pearl discontinued the aluminum Sensitone although you could get lucky and find one in stock

Re: Newb question: Brooklyns or classic bops

Call Maxwell's on the phone, you will be pleasantly surprised with the quote you receive. I ordered my USA Custom kit through them and was happy with the pricing.

Re: string or straps for snare wires?

Thanks for the link, couldn't find 5/8" in black at Walmart, $2.00 shipping works for me, cheaper than driving around town searching for black.

Re: Just Bought a Ludwig Classic Maple - Need Snare

I would order a matching Ludwig CM snare, and buy a used Supra or Acrolite to use for now and keep it for a backup.

Re: Jazzers, 16x18 or 14x18 bass drum?
