Re: Why the "hate" for nylon tips??

I have been using Nylon tip sticks for years and years with no problems. Better response on cymbals and a slightly brighter sound on them as well. I play technically on both my cymbals and heads. I...

Re: New here... Gretsch Renowns- yay or nay

Get the Renown’s. If they are last year’s model they are featuring USA shells and the new Renown’s have a different shell make up. As for the 8 inch tom, I love mine. Set it up and you will to.

My first kit featured a 13 inch tom back in 1964 so I would never discount the 13’s. I just sold a kit that had 8,10,12, and 13 along with a 16 inch floor. Currently my two kits have the 8, 10, and...

Re: Ludwig's new Signet 105 drum line!

Eight lug bass drums tune and stay tuned easier. I have both and the 8 lug hardly ever needs adjustment but the 10 lug often does. Not a big deal but if you think about it on a 22 inch drum the 8...

Re: Vintage Pearl Drumsets

I owned a Pearl kit that came with this mount. Bought in the early to mid 70's. Had a killer steel snare drum.

Re: Have your drumming tastes changed over the years?

(A little different answer, more to the kit sound that has changed)

Well I have had a long drumming life for sure. I started in 1964 on a 4 piece Slingerland kit. In the 60’s and 70’s rock was in...

Re: Sonor snare strainer

No problems with mine. Think about it, do you make a lot of changes to the strainer setting? No. I have had my 3007 for 3 years now and no problems. When you get your head of choice on these drums...

Re: Where are Sonor Force 3007s made?

Greats looking and superb sounding drums. I’ve been playing since 1964 and the Sonor Force 3007 is one of the very best I’ve played and owned.

Re: Tama Rockstar Tuning Dilemma

Rockstars are Basswood not Mahogany. I had a Rockstar kit some years ago and they tuned well with the included pinstripes.

Re: Tama Rockstar Tuning Dilemma

Get a Drumdial and loose the hydraulics. Just kidding on the heads, I just like to hear my drums sing not choke. As for the drumdial they are quite good in getting your heads tuned and from there you...
