Re: Drum heads, what to buy for my son's kit??

The standard go to head setup for Rock and hard hitting is Remo Emperor over Remo Ambasador. Or, Evans G-2 over G-1.

Re: Annoyed and disappointed with myself

I played to 1000 people two weeks ago and to an empty house last Sat night.
Gigs come all ways.

It is up to the band to play to the volume of the...

Re: Club Date SE or Signet?

Tough call. I own the CDSE in the 22, 13, 16 config and I love it tightly tuned. I also own vintage kits from Ludwig, Slingerland, and Gretsch so I have comparisons. I have never played a Signet kit...

Re: New Gretsch 3 ply Broadkaster line

They overdid the yellowing of the replicated aged WMP wrap.
Gretsch should offer them with optional calfskin BroadKaster heads too.

RobertM, the original 3 plies were made in house by Gretsch....

Re: ludwig swivel nut

Re: Pretty frustrated with adjusting to an acoustic kit

Also you have a large bass drum. That in itself will slow things down considerably. The larger the diameter of the bass drum, the slower the action. The depth of the bass drum also has a big effect...

Re: Pretty frustrated with adjusting to an acoustic kit

The bass drum pad on an e-kit will have much more response than an acoustic bass drum.
