Re: Electronic Drum Kit Survey

I filled out the survey, but I'm not the target audience of a TD-11KV. Hope that doesn't skew your results.

Re: How to remove badges?

Im not sure what the inside of your grommets look like, but my Rockstars had the grommets all cut and bent over the inside of the shell. I uses a small screwdriver and pried up the bent edges and...

Re: How sentimental are you about your drums?

I have a bit of a soft spot for my first kit. An 8 piece Tama Rockstar DX. My mom purchased it for me after my dad had died back in '93. I still own it all, and it has just gotten massive over the...

Re: 1980's Gretsch USA Custom

Well, a 13" rack tom being the smallest on the kit is very limiting to my needs, so this kit is not worth it to me. As I mentioned earlier, a 6 piece Renown kit is far more versatile in my mind as...

Re: 1980's Gretsch USA Custom

I don't know. 30 year old drums, made custom for someone else, in sizes that are really not that versatile, in an age (the 80's) not known for high quality construction, and with hardware that lends...

Re: How LOUD were the classic rock bands??

It probably has to do with pressure waves from being indoors vs outdoors. Those pressure waves can really stress your ear drums and increase the pain factor making it feel louder than it really is....

Re: 1980's Gretsch USA Custom

What sizes? 12/13/16/18/22? Do they come with bottom heads and rims/tuning rods?

I don't know. Maybe $1200?

Re: How LOUD were the classic rock bands??

And that was with amps, so the various instruments could be mixed on a console so they blended with each other. A 26" bass drum playing with 2B sticks don't mean a thing when you can get the same...

Re: Autumn beauty!

So from looking at photos here, and on your website, it looks like you keep the shells a little thicker at the bearing edge. They look to be about 9-12mm thick at the edges. Or at least thicker...

Re: Going from tight hi-hat to ride cymbal during songs - ride cymbal ideas

So even with the drop clutch off and the weight of the top hat on top of the bottom hat is still too sloshy for you? Wow, you would hate how I have my hi hat set up (1/4" gap between cymbals). If...

Re: Impact of tuning on drum structure

I would say, no it will not affect the shell's roundness. It may stretch the head and cause it to be worn out faster. So if storing the drums, maybe loosen the heads to JAW so you aren't buying new...

Re: Going from tight hi-hat to ride cymbal during songs - ride cymbal ideas

So you are saying that you are having problems playing your hi hat while playing double bass?

How about a drop clutch for the hi hat? Drop it when you need the double bass and a closed hat, and...

Re: Autumn beauty!

I would imagine the majority of your clients are from the UK? I only ask because shipping these drums across the pond sounds like a massive risk to their survival. I can just see some idiot...

The website works fine for me on my computer, but on my phone it's garbage as of late. It doesn't click back a page with the back button. It just refreshes the same page. I have to click the back...

Re: comparing two new sets, Ludwig or DW?

That 23" bass drum may be cool, but it sounds like a PITA for head selection. Quality wise I would say the DW is better. I have heard Ludwig's hardware lugs, etc. is a bit crap (ie. not up to the...

Re: Containment unit drum kit

That's pretty sad that the kid has resorted to building a kit out of card board tubes and saran wrap for drum heads. If I knew the kid, and saw him playing that kit in person, I would give him half...

Re: Is Tama a Bad Company?

I read about half the story, I think, and just gave up. The guy's story is crap, his grammar and punctuation is almost non-existent and his writing is completely scatter brained. This isn't an...
