Re: What size

I'll second that. Every 13x7 snare I have ever played sounded good to me. It is just a different sound you either like it or you don't.

Re: Nervous about Tama Superstar Drum Set

I think it's a common misconception that shallower toms will always give a smaller sound but I've heard some shallow toms that sounded as big if not bigger than deep toms...although that may depend...

Re: Cheap Maple kits?

Take a look at the Yamaha Tour Custom or the Mapex Meridian maple..... haven't played on the latter of the two but have played on a Saturn and was very impressed.

Re: Mapex kit - is this a good deal?

Yes you can play it that way and wait for the perfect kit to roll around because it is true that used equipment is selling cheap...but "better brand" is subjective to different people. Almost every...

Re: question for birch users

They would work very well with mics. In fact, I would probably PREFER birch in a live situation of playing metal. I've heard countless drummers playing maple kits live that had their kits micd...well...

Re: GigPig Drum Set

This is a really cool and interesting concept. I think I've seen them before but I don't recognize this particular name. The super-portability is a neat concept but I can't think of many instances...

Re: need advise on my next drumset

I agree...not much will have changed. Perhaps newer, sturdier hardware but that's just a guess. If you are talking about moving from birch to maple, that is not necessarily an upgrade... just a...

Re: Tama starclassic or superstar hyperdrive ?

I think the starclassic is worth saving for. If you look hard enough, you can find them out there for a lot cheaper than other high end kits, especially if you keep the "used" option open. I own the...

Re: Top Level Kits

I agree. Or if you really like your old performer but want to get something different, go for a maple or bubinga Starclassic. If you are willing to spend the money the money to get an SQ2 or a DW...

Re: Joey Jordison

Re: Lars Ulrich

I agree with Drumeatdrum and Kastas both on different sides of the coin.

On one hand, Lars did pave a path for a lot of drummers to go down. Ride the Lightning is what got me into metal...it is...

Re: Gretsch Catalina Maple vs TAMA Starclassic Performer Birch/Bubinga

I would go for the Starclassic Performer. To me, it is one of the better sounding kits I have heard and rivals kits that cost a lot more. I also like the Mapex Saturns and Sonor Delites a lot but...

Re: Gretsch Catalina Maple vs TAMA Starclassic Performer Birch/Bubinga

I would go for what you are a fan of. Sounds like you have enough money to spend on a decent professional kit. I understand that you need it right away but as soon as you buy a kit new, it's value is...

Re: Gretsch Catalina Maple vs TAMA Starclassic Performer Birch/Bubinga

I agree with Enrico. It will be pretty tough for you to play a performance with no cymbals, so if you have cymbals, another thumbs up for the B/B but if not, maybe you'll have to look closer at the...

Re: Gretsch Catalina Maple vs TAMA Starclassic Performer Birch/Bubinga

I think the Starclassic B/B would be the way to go if it must be these two kits. The Gretsch is good kit too but the B/B would be every bit as versatile in my opinion. The birch will make it more...

Re: YAMAHA STAGE CUSTOM. new heads?

While I agree that Pinstripes work well on the Stage Custom, be wary of buying Remo packages of heads...as in multiple heads in a pack. I've heard rumors of quality control being less discretionary...

Re: striking crash cymbals...

My suggestion is to strike the cymbal at a 35 or less degree angle. I've seen some players hit their cymbals at almost a 90 degree angle and it is no wonder they break sticks and cymbals so often....

Re: Buying time! Well, very soon in any case, but these decisions are driving me CRAZ

I would personally go for the Tama Starclassic B/B. It just so happens that I prefer the sound of birch over maple whereas some people don't. I have the Starclassic Performer all birch and I couldn't...

Re: Newbie chick drummer... help!

I would definitely recommend a used Yamaha Stage Custom kit or if you wanted to save yourself even a little more money, a Yamaha YD series (now out of production). The YD isn't bad for the money at...

Re: PORK PIE - The New Little Squealer

I own a Little Squealer 13" snare and I love it. It has a very dry, crisp sound but it is a highly ventilated snare. I played a gig with another band whose drummer was using a full LS kit. It sounded...

Re: Louie Bellson - Why Is He Hardly Mentioned On Here?

I play a kit with two bass drums and I owe it all to Mr. Bellson. He is credited as being the pioneer of double bass drum kits. He is a great, legendary drummer. I'm only 23 but I think all young...

Re: Old Performers vs. New Performers!

That is an absolute steal for a 6-piece performer kit, you are gonna enjoy that one a lot. If you don't mind, what shells did you get for that price?
