Re: Bearing Edge Dressing

I shellac the insides of pretty much all the drums I make. It doesn't really make a huge difference in sound to my ears, but it is always with keller maple shells, so maybe other woods would be...

Re: Pearl Sensitone phosphor bronze snares available again

yeah, I'm disappointed in how expensive the new sensitones are. They probably see people paying 700$ for black beauties, and all the other boutique drums for 1000$ + and figure they'll try their hand...

Re: Ludwig Piccolo Snare - Need A Manufacture Date

yep, just as they did on the last Blackrolites. I don't know what the b/w badge means anymore, as they started out using them on the u.s. made Rockers, then the blackrolites, but I'm assuming these...

Re: What is your opinion of this Billy Cobham review?

ha ha, Cobham is Cobham. That's why I love him- he's loud, busy, and does his own thing. A lot of people used to typical lighter hitting fusions guys probably are turned off by his style, because it...

Re: Old and new

trust me, when you get to a certain age, or certain level as a professional the less you even listen to music, much less new stuff. Most of those guys like Chambers basically do music as a job, so to...

Re: Ludwig Piccolo Snare - Need A Manufacture Date

naw, this is a recently made drum. I've seen these for sale new in the past 2 years or so, so not from the 80's. Probably no older than 3 to 4 years. It sold for 120$ or so on Musician's Friend, so...

Re: ludwig swivel nut

yeah, the inserts are all pretty much the same size. The only exceptions may be DW's, old Sonors, or certain Premiers.

Re: It's the room not the kit !

it's not just the room, but where you're at in the room, and what's next to you in that room. I've played rooms where if you move your kit a few inches one way, it can change the sound/volume. If...

Re: Opinions on what to do with these old ludwig Classic Maples?

man, those drums had been on ebay for a long time. I remember seeing them on there years ago. I believe that blue sparkle is probably turquoise sparkle, hence the greener look. I think the finish is...

Re: HELP!! Brass Snare Question

never had a problem with drummaker. It just seems like they went through a rough patch that can happen sometimes, especially in this economy. The parts can be sketchy to get sometimes since they are...

Re: Double Bass Drum Tone Uneven

I know exactly what you're talking about. A lot of double pedals are configured the same way, and will give you this same issue. However, Pearl's pedals are set up differently, and don't have this...

Re: How do you stabilize a virgin bass drum that jumps up and down?

yes, those spikes are really what keep the thing from moving. I guarantee that was part of your problem. Just put the rubber feet on before you put it back in the case, and you'll be fine. That's...

Re: Ludwig Transition / WFL

check on ebay religiously. You've actually got the most difficult drum to get from that era, which is the 18" floor tom. Either that, or the 14X10, which I don't think was even made till the later...

Re: How do you stabilize a virgin bass drum that jumps up and down?

sounds like it's a pedal issue. You're probably missing a piece of rubber on part of the clamp, and the thing can't grip the hoop properly, or the clamp itself could be defective. Try another pedal ...

Re: Deal of a lifetime or ripped off for being gullable

This kit is from the new Sonor Farce 2014 series. You know, the ones made from Keller shells by someone who "used" to work at Sonor, but got fired after a couple of days, lol.

Re: Yamaha Color Mixing? Cherry Wood (RC) and Cranberry Red (SC)

actually, I just saw an older long lugged stage custom on ebay, and it is the typical cherry stain finish of the time, so I actually think they would be pretty close with the r.c.'s. And yeah, the...

Re: Yamaha Color Mixing? Cherry Wood (RC) and Cranberry Red (SC)

I think the recording custom cherry is a solid finish (no wood grain showing), and the stage custom is a stain finish (plus a little darker), so they will likely not match too closely if that's the...

Re: Demotivated. How do you freshen up?

sometimes it's just utterly boring practicing on your own. Especially if it's basic stuff, or something you'll never really need. I have to play in a band situation, or at least a jam, to keep...

Re: Drumming pain

certain stick finishes can automatically give me blisters. Back when I used Vic Firth I got way more blisters because of the tackier finish. I use Pro Mark now, which almost feel like they have no...

Re: "Whitehall Deluxe Drum" Pre-Pearl 4-Piece Kit

I dig the lugs. And, change the resos for sure if the one in the pic is the one you're using. That thing is real beat up, and getting new ones will certainly improve the sound.

Re: Pearl LTD Edition 30th Anniversary FF

it sounds like they're just restricting the supply HERE so us deep pocket Americans can over pay for the limited edition. And, it works for the most part. Moral of the story- buy this drum from...

Re: How does Ludwig Keep Prices down?

while the classic maple prices are reasonable, their snare prices have gone through the roof over the past few years. I remember back 15 years ago you could get a 402 new for 300$. Now it's well over...
