Re: Yamaha Recording Custom 14X8 Snare drum

Even though the snare in the pic has RC style lugs I don't think it was part of the RC line. The RC snares had "box" type lugs. This may have been one of the concert series snares even though the...

I would suggest that people keep an open mind about the Golden Ratio and it's application to real world products. I am a designer and manufacturer of high end audio products, and even though my...

Re: Drums suck!

In my view, the quantity of air that is being displaced when the batter...

Re: rare yamaha stage custom ive bought

Thanks for your reply as that is good to know but my question was about how they match visually - does the wood exterior on both look exactly the same? Is one darker or more glossy than the other,...

Re: Naked shell porn - Old school finishing.

Hey Andy,

Those look beautiful!

I've done a fair amount of wood finishing with lacquer, shellac, poly, tung oil, etc. My favorite visual finish is 100% pure tung oil but "doing it right" takes...

Re: Does anyone actually like big finales?

Hate them but I'll do them if the song requires it or if others in the band want to.

Re: Moody Blues’s Graeme Edge: A Responsibility to Play the Hits

I saw the Moody Blues a few years ago at the Nokia in L.A. They played most of their big hits and were just amazing! Justin Hayward was particularly impressive!

Hi All,

Yes, of course without the lug being held in place somehow, as the top T rod is tightened it will pull up and add tension to the bottom head. My suggestion was to use locking nuts to keep...

Re: something I am building

Locking nuts on the T rods should work. Loosen each nut one at a time to tighten the T rods. The tightened nut on the opposite side of the floating lug should hold it in place while adjusting.

Re: SUPRAPHONIC WOOD HOOPS

I use a wood top hoop on my 6.5" bronze Supra and like it VERY much! It retains all of the wonderful original Supra sonic qualities while warming it up somewhat. The cross stick is amazing.
