Re: Demotivated. How do you freshen up?

sometimes it's just utterly boring practicing on your own. Especially if it's basic stuff, or something you'll never really need. I have to play in a band situation, or at least a jam, to keep...

Re: Drumming pain

certain stick finishes can automatically give me blisters. Back when I used Vic Firth I got way more blisters because of the tackier finish. I use Pro Mark now, which almost feel like they have no...

Re: "Whitehall Deluxe Drum" Pre-Pearl 4-Piece Kit

I dig the lugs. And, change the resos for sure if the one in the pic is the one you're using. That thing is real beat up, and getting new ones will certainly improve the sound.

Re: Pearl LTD Edition 30th Anniversary FF

it sounds like they're just restricting the supply HERE so us deep pocket Americans can over pay for the limited edition. And, it works for the most part. Moral of the story- buy this drum from...

Re: How does Ludwig Keep Prices down?

while the classic maple prices are reasonable, their snare prices have gone through the roof over the past few years. I remember back 15 years ago you could get a 402 new for 300$. Now it's well over...

Re: Makers dozen... 8, 10, or 12?

Karl, I have that same 10 lug 14X13 Ludwig I converted to a floor tom. It is a pain to tune, since all the lugs can barely have any tension on them or it will be too high a pitch. With the loose...

Re: Advice on Mapex Black Panther Sledgehammer drum head?

I don't have this snare, but I have a similar model, and I love the Remo Controlled Sound X on mine. Other heads I like are the Aquarian Hi Velocity, and that HD dry actually sounds good as well, and...

Re: 24 inch bass drums

simply put a pillow or sheet inside the drum. Quickest and easiest way to deal with the boominess. With a drum that size, you can still get a lot of tone even with stuffings. Sheets are good, because...

Re: TAMA Artstar snare used by Randy Castillo

Sweet! Just saw a video from that tour a few nights ago. The shell is likely birch on this drum. As far as value goes, it just depends on the buyer, and their desire to own one of Castillo's drums....

Re: Ludwig Supralite 8 x 14

I like the regular cs in small rooms, but when I play them in big rooms they just seem to lose their presence. I don't have that issue with the X. And, I have an old powerstroke x with the ring...

Re: Ludwig Elite bracket/Vibra Band mount question

the washers are so the nut tightens the bracket to the rim mount. Without it the nut bottoms out on the raised part of the bracket where the screw goes in, therefor not tightening properly all the...

Re: Ludwig Supralite 8 x 14

Karl, you should try a Remo Controlled Sound X. These are my go to heads now, after going through tons of different heads, and not finding any to my liking. They are the best of both worlds- they...

Re: This is more like it ;)

yep, I have a couple of these logos. I think the original early 70's logo was little bit smaller than this one, but this is as close as you can probably get. Here's a seller in the U.S. that sells...

Re: Pork Pie Nyatoh Snare

no, but that's a great price for that drum, even though I have no idea what that particular wood type is like. Never heard of it before.

Re: Yamaha Peter Erskine 14x4 snare

You should check out the Pearl maple 4X14 piccolo. They can be had for very cheap on ebay, yet they are great quality snares despite the price. It is basically the same as the J.R. Robinson sig snare...

Re: Help with Gretsch hammer brass 8x14

gonna have to try that with mine one of these days. The coating is probably some sort of wax like they use on cymbals. You could probably just spray some sort of clear lacquer on it just for a sealer.

Re: Help with Gretsch hammer brass 8x14

I've got this same snare in the 6.5 deep version, and it has the same spots, so I'm thinking it probably never had a protective coating. I've never tried to get the spots off, but some sort of...

Re: Zickos kit need snare and other goodies

can't go wrong with the good ol acrolite. Cheap and sounds great. Or, if you wanna stay with acrylic, search for some used Pork Pie Piglites on ebay. They can be had for cheap if you are patient. PDP...

Re: PDP CX series frums vs Concept series

the Concepts are lacquer finishes, and seem to be better quality wise overall. Marco Minneman is using them on tour right now over DW's (who he is endorsed by), so they must be something special. I'd...

Re: Identify this Ludwig bronze snare

yeah, those kick hoops are definitely Rockers. Looks like he just added Keystone badges, which can easily be obtained on ebay these days. Probably the same thing with the snare. And, the Rocker Pro...

Re: New vintage Ludwigs, pics!!

yeah, I didn't see the sharp cornered badges. USUALLY they didn't rivet the seems until about '82 or so, but I'm sure they tried it earlier on. I dunno why they riveted stainless steel wrap though,...

Re: New vintage Ludwigs, pics!!

very nice! I absolutely love the ludwig 6 ply drums. They really play/sound nice with clear emperors. And, with the riveted seams, and 2xxxxx badges, I'd say those are from '81, or 82'.

Re: Snare is not cutting through!

use a regular 2 ply head, or reverse dot single ply, and rim shot that sucker! It will cut more with less effort. And, try using larger sticks. More volume with less effort.
