Re: A rear line day - mini report.

Here in the states my experience has been there's usually a DW backline set either onstage, or available. I believe YAMAHA is still the most requested backline kit, the hardware (CL945) has a lot to...

Re: DW rack-tom mount

Yup, DW slide track mount, the best BD mount you can buy IMO. I'll have em on my NEW CLASSIC's if I ever tire of a rack. TAMA has a slide track too.

These mounts are the most adjustable for tom...

Re: New Guru "Tour" series kits - details here first :)

The lighter the drum (hardware, shell) the bigger the fundamental, that part of the sound is going to bark longer. A big fundamental is the most notable sonic aspect of a drum, the meat of the sound,...

Re: Anyone have this new Gretsch snare yet?

I was half right, thanks for clarifying. The rest of the line 12. 13 .14 have bridge lugs mimicking the legendary LUDWIG design, and don't know why they didn't use the same on the 6.5. My guess is...

Well it is true... like BLACK TAR toothpaste will 'help' fight cavities.

They are cheaper, mission accomplished. 'Affordable' is more subjective.

Re: New Guru "Tour" series kits - details here first :)

Its been stated there's no economy/budget line from GURU. These are cheaper than ORIGIN and IN-TENSE, but 100% heavier too, and for $5k + Im going to want a pretty, nice-nice coloured finish.

Re: New Guru "Tour" series kits - details here first :)

I guess it depends on where the drums will live, as the elements can celebrate a natural finish too, turning the party into a mess real fast under the right circumstances.

I agree tho that GURU's...

Re: Anyone have this new Gretsch snare yet?

To be fair the 6.5 is a different design, reverse center bead and more, heavier lugs attached in different areas than the 5.5/others. The 6.5 is the only drum in that genus with a reverse bead.

Re: Anyone have this new Gretsch snare yet?

Under $200 US? Quite possibly the best deal on a new brass snare drum ever.


I prefer 1mm with brass... add 8 lugs, 5.5" depth and dual adjustable strainer= world-beating.

Re: AK Snare Drums?

That's the one that caught my eye, tell us more please. Macro pics would be nice too.

Re: New Guru "Tour" series kits - details here first :)

... also GURU gets 5 stars on the lug splay.

Builders, manufactures take note, tube lugs with no splay.

Re: New Guru "Tour" series kits - details here first :)

Wow, 10, 11 and 12mm thick!?

My 10 mm bass drum lacks usable depth/bottom, but its ply.

What percent in net weight gain compared to ORIGIN, IN-TENSE?

Re: Metronome app that speeds up and then slows down

Speeds up and then slows down? Just listen to the guitar player before and after the solo.

Re: Tigerwood - Grrrrrrrrr :)

My favorite wire style, less sympathetic buzz, better buzz from head contact IMO.

Can experiment on you own, center cut out any 20 strand, get an idea.

Re: 1980's Gretsch USA Custom

Mint condition includes bottom head hardware (in mint condition) correct?

80's was/isn't exactly the best period for GRETSCH drums IMO.
