Re: Drum & Cymbal Company Logos

I like the script Premier Logo, with the dynamic underline.


Curiously enough, even though it's script, I find the Pearl Logo boring,...

Re: Remo Roto Toms problem!

It's true that the screw and mounting parts look way undersized !
The washer type shown above is a good idea but I would also look for another screw : the longest possible, with a split washer and a...

Re: Back to the future!

Beautiful !
The shiny finish is deep.
What is the purpose of the kind of clamp above the bass drum ?

Re: Yamaha Stage Custom Birch

I observe in this forum a craze for the stage custom yam. I’ve played some ; I was rather unimpressed. Good kit of course - and good price- but if I compare it to my former Tama Silverstar, I tend to...

Re: Some time grooving

Nice work !
I'm surprised how high you sit !
The bass drum must be light weight, great idea you had to replace the old unreliable spurs.

Re: Deep bass drums

Bass drums are more difficult to judge really, depending the port, the muffling, the beater, the spring, everybody will have different feeling. And it’s the most directional instrument of the drum...

I used not to count time during breaks (I just taped my lap to keep time for myself) but the band I'm in asked me to count time loudly ! With the left foot or with the sticks on the rim or the hat....

Re: Deep bass drums

The two best bass drums I owned were 22x16 : Premier Birch (unported) and Premier Signia Maple (Ported). I owned 3 Tama 22x18 (birch) : they didn't sound as good - paradoxically, they didn't sound...

Re: Deep bass drums

22x16 was a standard during 80' and 90's.
To me, this is the best depth, 18" depth is less practical for transportation, small stages and not necessary soundwise. 20" depth is overkilled.
14" depth...

Re: Bd size options / experience

18" means also a drum riser, which could be a pain.

Re: Anybody like big bass drums?

It looks like a joke really.
I wonder how he came to the idea that it'd be playable or just movable.
Anyway if you find mesh heads that size you can turn it into a trampoline !

Re: Loudest snare drum ever?

The loudest I came across were generally the metal one, particularly the pearl FF steel, and also the brass piccolo which was aggressive and bloody loud. A pain for the ears ! With either one, you...

Re: What are the stories behind famous drummers kits?

The first to incorporate splash cymbal ? I think it was Stewart Copeland.
The suspended floor ? I think it was Gadd, followed by Weckl.
The first to you use two toms mounted on the bass drum, not...

Re: If you could decide for your favorite manfacturer's standard sizes?

Even if I could, of course, live with it, I know I would make a compromise by buying for example, a Renown with deep 22x18 and a tiny 10x7. Make it two inches less on the bass and one or two more on...

Re: If you could decide for your favorite manfacturer's standard sizes?

Through this thread, we see that manufacturers should really consider going back to shallower bass drum. 22x16 or 14".
The move to shallower floor toms was a good one, the move to small rack...

Re: If you could decide for your favorite manfacturer's standard sizes?

Exactly what I currently play :

Please bring back the 22x16 bass drum and deeper tom in the 10 12 16 configuration. 10x7 is too shallow, not enough body to my ears.

Re: Can you identify this Kit?

Looks like royalstar, but the bass Spurs aren't genuine.
Tension lugs and bass Spurs casing were kind of fragile. I restored an equivalent set few years ago.

Re: What brands holds their value the most

I'm talking from France, so the market maybe different, old Sonor hold value pretty well (more than Premier) and Ludwig can be seen really overpriced (even with peeled chrome or so).

Re: What brands holds their value the most

Gretsch seem to hold their value quite fine, DW too - but - I've seen many DW kits with goofy finish or odd sizes, that few people will seek.
