Re: And I got a rack!

While I've been known to take a hacksaw to hardware .... run a few scenarios before you do it. Are you ever gonna run a larger bass drum, for one? Cutting down the vertical will look better, but it...

Re: Vistalite concert tom set - a good deal?

Clear and blue Vistalite kits are the two most common, so he's clearly wrong about this kit being "rare". I don't see any badges either. Not a great deal, or a good deal. It is what it is.

Re: Help a Dad out buying used set for son.

The SPL kit has probably really horrid cymbals. 10" hats and a 12" ride/crash (so states the link). The Pearl will be a wonderful upgrade. Even the ZHT/ZBT cymbals will be quite an improvement...

Re: Parting together vintage toms?

Re: is it cheaper to buy individual drums to complete a set?

With most companies, it's about price points. So usually, you have to buy complete shell packs on entry and mid level kits. Also, sizes are usually limited. But once you start getting into the more...

Re: How do you pack and ship cymbals?

Last year, I sold off 27 cymbals. I used boxes either 1 inch or 2 inches larger than the cymbal. So, for example ..... an 18 inch cymbal would go in a 19x19 or 20x20 box. Typically, boxes are...

Re: Turning a Floor Tom into a Kick Drum - tips?

In my case, cost. Riser was $36. And I needed it more because I needed to attach a pedal to the drum somehow. A wood hoop is $50, at least. Add T's and claws, now you've got a hundred buck...

I used the Gibraltar floor tom riser and some old Ludwig fold out spurs I had for my 18.

Re: Struggles of Short Drummer and 5-Piece with Offset Toms

Glad you're dialing things in. It takes a while, sometimes, to find out what you want. Or need. Fortunately, there are a lot of options available, as far as gear goes.

Re: Latin Percussion???

Maybe look into electronic hand percussion devices, like the Roland HandSonic, Korg wave drum, ATV aFrame. They won't beat up your hands like traditional hand percussion.

Re: Jojo Mayer - Questions

I saw him waaay before he had his own sticks and pedal. And he was a monster. At a winter NAMM, and he was demo'ing Sonor Giant Step pedals. Countless hours of practice, that's how he got there.
