Re: Favorite throw off and why?

Sonor Dual Glide, because it makes it ridiculously easy to change your snare side head without screwing up your snare setting, and being able to use your leg to engage the snare while playing is very...

Re: Drum fads: Past, present...and future?

Drums in general. Lets face it, there are less kids picking up music now, and those that are doing it are doing it all digitally, not rocking out of their parents garage. Older drummers from the...

Re: 1992 Pearl MLX in Piano Black

As the owner of a 1992 Export Pro, I have to say that MLX is a thing of beauty. Wonderful job.

Re: Sonor Designer Maple Light Snare- 14 x 6.5

One other tip, if you buy it, you'll want to get a slotted drum key. ;)

Re: Sonor Designer Maple Light Snare- 14 x 6.5

An exotic finish for that snare (birdseye, bubinga, etc) would fetch $600-800 or so. So a flat black at $400 seems fairly reasonable. Note that it's sometimes hard to price Sonor products as...

Re: Beginner, Intermediate, and Pro Kit Definitions

I've always kind of evaluated it by the hardware. Cheap hoops, mounts with limited adjustability, flimsy bass drum spurs, lugs that detune easy, etc. Higher end kits will (usually) have better...

Re: Oh no! Not another new bearing edge :(

You can shorten sustain of any drum. But not every drum can sing.

I think as I've gotten older I've realized I want my drums to sing. Afterwards I can put on gel, gaffer tape, rags, wallet, etc...

Re: Why the hate? (Lars Ulrich)

Acted like a front man, was the drummer. Unless you can play like Buddy Rich, haters gonna hate.

Re: Rock and roll....over?

IMO Hip hop is already dead. It's gone the way of Rock and Jazz before it.

The future of music instrumentation will be on tablets, most likely some form of Electronica. You don't even need to...

Re: Other than practice- quickest way to improve?

Re: Advice: Sonor or Pearl

Seems slightly odd you would want to pick between a vintage maple or medium beech Sonor, given the difference in sound. If you're considering SQ2 then you may as well consider every shell available....

Re: Sonor essential or Mapex Armory

Actually both those kits are made in the same factory in China. I think you'd do well with either, tho I'd prefer the Sonor.

Re: Using a snare as a floortom

Chris Dave does this as well (though that's not saying much since all he has is snares). One of the better setups I saw had what I think was an old Ludwig Parade Snare (14x11), tuned low.

Re: Stoopid drum deal of the day: Sonor Jungle

I had this issue with a converted 16" floor tom I turned into a bass with the PB pedal. Best I could do was get it close enough not to hit the rim and make due. I usually use my Vater Bomber Beater...

Re: Does independence just click one day?

I think it "clicks" when you finally get it enough to feel like it's part of your repertoire. Of course you forget the weeks/months of work leading up to that.

That's how it was when I was very...

I kinda always wondered what happened to other bands when a member goes on tour. Now I know.

Re: Sonor Picolo

You might be right. The two drums basically look exactly the same, its just whether it's bronze or brass. I thought brass because on the bronze drums the badge tends to look lighter than the shell...

Re: Sonor Picolo

It's a Sonor Signature Symphony Snare (SY 1404). Brass shell and finish. I believe they came out around 1996, retailed for about $1,200 back then. Your bottom hoop is interesting because it has...
