Re: The Big Kits vs. Small Kits Debate

I agree in that small space a smaller kit is required, however I won't take those gigs anymore. If I can't use my complete kit, I'm not interested in the gig.

Re: The Big Kits vs. Small Kits Debate

Very Nice kit Sticks. I've got a cargo van so transporting the kit is not problem for me. :)

Re: fastest non-triggered double bass

Exactly, if you can play it, you can play it with trigger or without. The use of triggers has nothing to do with your speed.

Re: PDP X7

I just bought a set of X7's and love them. 100% maple shells lacquer finish. They sound way better then the price would indicate. My last kit was a Sonor S.E. kit and this kit blows that kit away....

Re: Mike Portnoy

I know this post is from 2005, but it is still one of the most ridiculous things I've ever read. All you have to do is Watch Neil play YYZ, then watch Mike play it with his Cygnus and the Sea...

Re: Sad about cymbals

I agree you will probably never get him to admit denting the cymbals, so I'd just kick his ass.

Re: Whats the difference between PDP and DW?

From the info I could find the 805's are birch shells. Personally I'd go with the X7's 100% maple, they sound great. I once owned a birch kit, it sounded nice but lacked the warmth of maple.
