Re: Help with bearing edge damage?

Well, that's not entirely true. There are some different schools of thought on wraps and what role they play in the drum. Are they just decorative or are they intended to become part of the shell's...

Re: Best drums under $1500?

How many drums are you looking to buy? If you want a Tama Bell Brass snare, you don't have enough money for that. If you want a Guru snare, you are right on the edge of having enough money. If you...

Re: Help with bearing edge damage?

Thats a pretty good gouge there. And its right on the crest where the head seats, so Im sure it will play some roll in the drums sound. How large of a roll is something you will have to decide. I...

Re: Double lugs vs single lugs

I cant get the Configurator to work right now, but I agree with Wally here. What am I missing. There are only two different lugs I can see that Sonor offers on the SQ2's. The regular 2 point...

Re: Incorrect terms and Discrimination

I say you go up there with a suitcase, some whistles, bicycle horns and other random noise makers and rock out. This method worked out pretty well for Bermuda. Just use some creativity and you dont...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Well, I got a couple more shells for snares to build. I guess that makes 4 that I have to build now. 5x14 Pecan and 6x14 Zebrawood with diagonal grain.

Re: Silly branding things that shouldn't matter (but do!)

My Gretsch Catalina Maple kit had 10 badges on it telling me it was a Gretsch Catalina Maple. Also, every tom mount and floor tom leg bracket told me it was a gretsch kit. The bass drum tom holder...

Re: anyone own or tried the DW concrete snare?

If I were to get something like a concrete snare it would be a Kumu Stone Edge snare.

Re: Sonor Phonics.....too heavy??

I have a bunch of those Tama Titan Stilt stands. The HC94B and HC104TB come in at ~14-15 lbs each. Very stable, but gigging with them is not much fun.

Re: Excessive snare buzz

The resonant head on a snare is really thin (2 or 3 mil depending on the head), so the head deforms and contours very easily when compared to something like an Ambassador weight head (10 mil). The...

Re: Excessive snare buzz

I would say its an issue of improper bed width and depth for the wires you are using. Too flat of a reso head (ie. no bubble for the wires to ride on) will lead to excessive snare buzz. I'm...

Re: vintage bulb for home decoration

I, personally, like the 3 filament bulbs from the late 50's and early 60's. Not the more modern 6, 7 or 8 filament bulbs. For the warmest light I recommend a 3 filament bulb with a...

Re: Tru tune

My 20v Porter Cable cordless drill can spin at 1600 rpm's. Tension rods come fully loosened in less than a second each. I agree with Odd-Arne, I don't need more crap in my house. 3 kits with...

Re: GRETSCH BROOKLYN mediocre bad quality?

I can vouch for crappy Gretsch quality. The bearing edges on my Catalina Maple were a joke. Also, there were gaps in the middle plys of 3 of the 5 toms on my kit. The gaps had to be filled and the...

Re: Why doesn't anyone make quieter drums?

Playing with dynamics is a completely different thing to loud vs quiet drums. Learning dynamics is a very valuable tool that all drummers should learn, but playing at an ultra quiet level while...

Re: Why doesn't anyone make quieter drums?

Re: Why doesn't anyone make quieter drums?

If you want quiet you can use mesh batter heads and keep the mylar reso heads. Tune the reso heads for the tone you want and you are good to go for the drums. For the cymbals you can use Zildjian...

Re: dw colllectors experts, need info

Well, duh. For $500 you can get a new kit from another brand. For this kit, $2500 may be a good price. It looks nice and I'm sure its built well with a nice sound, but to me a Collectors kit is...

Re: DW bass drum muffling pillows

Have you tried the small vent holes like in DW resonant heads, or like Benny Greb puts in his BD reso heads? Before you tear up a new head, try duct taping over the big mic/vent hole in an old head...
