Re: Mid/high level kits.

Agreed, it's a broad question and thanks for the response. Where does a Tama Starclassic birch kit belong?

Mid/high level kits.

Which kits are considered mid level, which are considered high level? Not only in terms of price but, as important, in terms of sound.
Players' opinions, please.

Re: Chad Smith Snare or Acrolite

Thanks. The drum already has a power center reverse dot and an ambassador snare head. A Puresound upgrade is worth a try, which do you recommend, steel or brass, blaster or custom?

Re: amplifying bass drum from backline.

Thanks for replies. I should have said that I do use a mixer but I take your points about gear being up to the task. Anything bigger would not find room in my transport so 'use and abuse is my only...

Re: Musicians who don't want to rehearse

For a (mainly) covers band, what works best is when all members do their homework so at rehearsal, it should just be about gelling together and agreeing to any changes to the original arrangement....

amplifying bass drum from backline.

As my band doesn't use bass bins(subs), I've been micing the bass drum (with Sennheiser E402) through an Alto TS Sub 15(600 watts, 1200 peak.)
On New Year's Eve , after 21 months from new, the...

Which is the best Mapex kit series? and, in a horizontal comparison with the best of Mapex, which kits from other drum companies are considered equal to the Mapex best?

3/4.6/8

I hear a lot of songs with a 3 feel and often wonder about the original time signatures, 3/4 or 6/8? I'd appreciate some examples of both.

Tama Starclassic birch tom tuning.

Using G2 coated/G1 resos, I usually have the resos slightly higher. Has anyone found a better result with a much larger pitch difference? (10,12,14,16 accel sizes).

Re: Upgrading from Tama timbalitos

Good point about the sizes. There's nothing I don't like about them but sometimes feel they could be a bit more cutting with a little more volume. I'm using ambassadors.

Upgrading from Tama timbalitos

I play 8" and 10" kit mounted timbalitos for reggae/latin flavoured sounds and wonder if there is an obvious upgrade brand available?

Re: 3 toms, most versatile sizes?

Thanks for all your replies. I'm downsizing (from 10,12,14,16 rack toms) and rebuilding without a rack. I'll try 10 and12 mounted on bass drum, with the 16x14 on a cymbal floor stand.

Re: Going rackless!

Good advice, thanks. It's probably easier(though not cheaper) to sell the rack and stands and buy new floor units. Do you recommend Tama, Gibraltar or some other?

By the way, what is the meaning...
