No Respect

I have both. My e-kit is a Roland TD30. While the a-kit and e-kit do not feel the same at all, I have found that the better I get, the quicker I can move from the electric to the acoustic without...

Re: The Ludwig Acrolite

Unfortunately, what I thought was a good deal on a 70's Acrolite became less so when I went to change heads and discovered it one small area of the body is out-of-round. It was probably dropped at...

Re: The Ludwig Acrolite

I just purchased a 14 x 5 Acrolite and I'm looking to replace the snare wires with either a Puresound 20 or 30 strand unit. Any thoughts on which way to go? (I play mostly rock/pop and like a crisp...

Re: Tuning opinion...

I have always tuned the batter side lower. Not sure why exactly but it's probably something I read at some point. Based on this thread, I'm going to try tuning the batter head tighter.

Tuning opinion...

When tuning, do you prefer the batter head or the reso head to be tighter (to get the fundamental note you want)?

Can you identify this Acrolite?

Does anyone know the vintage on this Acrolite?

And what would be a reasonable price for this 5x14 in average shape?

Thanks!

Re: Making the most out of limited practice time

I think Benny Greb's, The Language of Drumming, will give you the biggest bang for the buck. By learning one "simple" concept, and applying it in different ways, you will be able to play ANYTHING on...

So, Bo, if you could choose between the 3007 snare and the Acrolite, you'd go with the 3007 snare?

Re: Snare for a $200 budget

I'm picking up a Sonor Force 3007 and I'm considering not taking the snare that comes with the kit (14 x5) and getting either a new or used snare for @$200.

Re: Drummers who don't use cymbal stoppers

Yeah, a closer shot would be great. BTW, I love how tight you've got your kit set up. Everything is close and easily reached. What size bass is that?

Re: Drummers who don't use cymbal stoppers
