Re: Do you call it a kick drum or bass drum?

Youtube viewers will hate on you no matter what you do, so don't worry about it.

I've always said "bass" drum, but I've heard a lot of folks say "kick" so I think it's pretty widely accepted....

Re: So what's up with Ludwig 2014

I've commented about this in other threads. This is the golden age of drum gear as far as a wide variety of quality options at all price points. Very few niches are unserved, and while that has to be...

Re: Pro level kit

I'm not sure how your drum comes out of tune with lug locks, but I can see how that would be frustrating. Maybe it's worth trying some cast hoops. Also, as long as you're changing heads, maybe go a...

Re: Refinishing Color Yamaha Recording Custom Drum?

I've never seen yellow RCs, but changing a rare color is only an issue if you're worried about resale value (and rare doesn't always mean desirable). If you plan on keeping and playing them, who...

Re: Did Ludwig do solid black drum hoops on WMP newer classic maples

I recently looked into ordering a Ludwig kit, and I think you have the choice of inlay or plain hoop.
And of course, logos are easily changed, and maybe the original hoops were damaged and replaced...

Re: Is the acoustic kit dying?

I'm not going to debate the pros and cons of e drums, but back to the original question, I'm trying to remember ever being in a venue where a drummer used an elctronic setup live instead of acoustic....

Re: Thinking of adding a tom - what size?

It sounds like you'd prefer an 8" tom. Are you wanting to add on because you feel there's a sound missing from what you use your kit for? Or are you just kinda bored with your current setup...

Re: 10 things you may not know about Charlie

I picked up Charlie's isolated hi hat thing when clicking the rim and certain patterns, but I didn't realize he did it so much.

Re: The DW "When will Bo sell his new kit?" thread

I say January when I convince him to sell it to me at a smokin' discount.
Those are my sizes, and as a Southerner I dig the camo inspired finish.

Re: Gretsch brass snare vs. Black Beauty

For the sake of posterity, I just wanted to note that Gretsch does offer spun brass (http://www.gretschdrums.com/?fa=g4000sub&sid=599&fin=sb) shells in the G-4000 line, along with solid steel,...

Re: Can i order custom drums?

It depends what you want. As far as finishes, I know Gretsch (USA Custom) and DW offer more colors than what you see on the website. Pearl's Masterworks series is probably the broadest option from a...

Re: Drums for Church

Re: David Garibaldi is the drummer you'd want in your band

Can you imagine playing something exactly the same way for decades? It's a fine line for artists like him, though (guitarists are really bound by this as well). There are certain details people...

Re: What should I expect from 14x4.5

Since it's Yamaha Absolute (birch, maple, etc) you know it's gonna sound great. It should be very responsive with a solid crack, and like you said it will have a lot of woody tone despite the shallow...

Re: Pork Pie Hip Pig!

These seem hard to beat for the price!
Bill, do these have a rounded bearing edge to match the vintage look? Or is it your standard edge?

Re: Anyone on here watch The Voice?

Cole Vosbury all the way! He's local and a great guy. Super talented and just as down-to-earth as he seems on the show.

It's not a big deal to get song requests, but every once in a while you'll get someone who is really insistent and even gets mad that you won't play their song.

Re: The best drum sound I have heard in a long time!

I haven't kept up with Yamaha lately, but apparently they discontinued all their signature snares. I used to have a Sonny Emory sig, I believe it was made of beech. Great drum, as they all are.
