Re: Help With Yamaha Drum Part

That's even a big deal on the shorter versions too. I've struggled with it several times myself! Try the tom mounted at all points on the hex rod and mount it where it has the most resonance. ...

Re: Kick Drum physics experts in the house?

Sometimes the toms that are mounted to the bass drum can resonate and make things sound funny. Just a thought.

The Yamaha oak bass drums are freaking AWESOME, so I hope you get it sorted and...

Re: How LOUD were the classic rock bands??

I didn't read all of the replies, but yeah. The guitar amps back then were clean, clean, clean until they were cranked up to unGodly levels to get the distortion we all know and love.

I've owned...

Re: New Gretsch 3 ply Broadkaster line

I apologize if this was already posted, but it looks like a famous drum shop in TN has one and here's a cool video.

Re: Guitarist comment on drummers

I'm a long time gigging lead guitarist that switched to drums 4 or so years ago. Nobody hated drummers, but I will say that a majority of drummers I've played with or seen in the area kinda suck. ...

Re: Yamaha Drums

I recently bought a copper Yamaha snare with the nouveau lugs and I feel the same way. They are much harder to work with IMO.

Re: Warped die cast hoops

I've used the method shown in a "Drum Dial" official video on YouTube I saw one time. Don't have time to search for it now, but I'm sure you can find it. It's on their channel.

You basically use...

Re: Quality of new Chinese Yamahas?

I really like the shallow toms! I don't play with my toms flat at all, but they do allow me to position them more comfortably than the slightly deeper toms. I mean, it's pretty slight, but...

Re: Quality of new Chinese Yamahas?

Hey Mike, thanks!!! I had coated Vintage Ambassadors on the Oak Custom kit I owned for a little while and never tried those heads on the Live Custom. So that probably makes a difference -- not sure...

Re: It's the room not the kit !

All it's really saying is that you may need to adjust the tuning of your drums to sound the way you like when you move into another environment. Just by listening to the drums. It really is that...

Re: Singers dragging the tempo

My band kinda "forced" me to use a metronome live. Once I realized it stopped ANY argument about me speeding up or slowing down, I fell in love with it. Nobody says anything about the temp anymore...

Re: New to me Acrolite

Congrats Ron and enjoy. I have one of the reissue 6.5" x 14" Acrolites and it's definitely in the top 2-3 snares I've owned. I use it all the time for everything.

Great all 'rounder!

If you're doing this as a business, I suggest you buy the heads and experiment to find the best size of your vinyl sticker. I mean, don't you want to do some research and ensure you're using correct...

I thought I read before that there were 602 Sound Edge hats before the 2002s were introduced? Maybe not.

Re: Hi hats and air lock, no luck.

So when you do a foot chick on the hats, it's in audible? I've had that happen alot, but tilting the bottom cup has always worked. Weird!

Re: Yamaha Drums

Doesn't seem like there's alot of excitement about the Live Customs either and those have been out for a year or more.

I have a Live Custom kit and I dig it.
