Re: Yamaha AMH 22x18 to 20x16

20x16 is fine, I actually prefer it to 14x20. Yamaha doesn't make 14x24 in Live Custom, which I hope they would make, so there you go.

Re: Anyone play huge drums?

I traded my Gretsch Renown Walnut 10-12-14-20 to a good friend for his Ludwig CM 9x12 - 16x18 - 14x26 last year. I've been wanting a kit with a 26, and lucked out without having to shell out 2500 for...

Re: Worst expensive kit you ever played?

Since this bad boy was resurrected, I guess I can chime in:

In 2015, I sated my Vintage Natural urge with the purchase of a fantastic looking Yamaha Birch Custom Absolute. These were from the last...

Re: Yamaha AMH 22x18 to 20x16

the 16x20 would be more versatile and wouldn't be too much of an adjustment. If you're playing louder music more often you'll miss the "balls" of the 22, but the 20 is good for everything. And add to...

Re: Yamaha Stage Custom vs Live Custom--worth upgrading?

You're confusing LC with the old Oak Custom, that had a "bad" (unfair IMO) reputation for being loud to the point of uncontrollable. The LCs have a better balance and are not as loud, which I...

Re: Yamaha Stage Custom vs Live Custom--worth upgrading?

I agree about better cymbals before better drums.

But, if that's taken care of, you'll quickly see how great 14x22 is not only as a sound, but also how easy it is to stuff inside a compact car....

Re: Yamaha Drums

My LC kit has gotten more compliments for its looks and sound more than any other piece of gear I've ever owned. I try to make sure all of my gear sounds great on the gig, but for some reason the LCs...

Re: I will NEVER buy / own _______, and here's why.

I agree, I would never say never because you can't. For example, I thought it was over when Yamaha moved most of its drum manufacturing to China, but I was dead wrong. I have a Live Custom kit and I...

Re: Yamaha Drums

Hi guys,

I picked up a BCA in Vintage natural this past week. They look fantastic, and am trying to dial in the sound. Right now I put on a set of Remo White Suede Emperor batters and am not 100%...

Re: NEW DRUM KIT

A Pearl Masterworks for 2,000 Euros?? Brand New, that MW config costs at least 3500 - 4000.

Is it used? You can buy that MW kit and a beater bass drum and have a gig kit and a practice kit!

Re: Why bother with books?

While learning to play drums from books for some is not necessary, the only way to be able to read music by sight...is to read music from books. There's no other way.

Re: Yamaha Drums

No, I think it's for the fact that they'd have to sit on a 24" bass drum for forever. The other drums are listed separately cause they know they will eventually sell. 24" kick drums...in this day and...

Re: Anybody rockin 13-16-20?

I've seen a few do 10-16-22 like Mike Johnston, but I remember a few drummers playing that configuration in the late 90's

I'd like to do 10-12-15-18-20bd someday again. I had my old Hilite kit in...

Re: Stevie Wonder - Superstition

That's fine if you want to do that, but that absolutely sucks the soul out of the tune doing that. You don't need that powerful of a "microscope" to determine whether it's 16th notes slightly swung...

My latest purchase this past weekend

Found a K Custom Session 18" Crash for $120 used - cymbal was barely touched. Fantastic find.

But the day before I was lucky to find someone had these gems...

Re: Yamaha Drums

I agree. I was hoping for a pro birch line in 2015. And snares! They only have two pro snares in their lineup!

I'm patient. I have a feeling that they will announce when it's ready, and it will be...

Re: Yamaha Live Custom Oak - opinions?

I bought a set of Live Customs last July 2014. Amazing kit! So much so that I am switching over everything to Yamaha! Plan this year is to buy an AMH in Vintage Natural. 10-12-14-16-20 and snare.

Re: Confusion on rolls - open or closed?

Most of the time I play rolls, it's in a concert band setting. You're in essence sustaining a quarter/eighth/half note, so I always play them closed. Unless the director instructs to do otherwise.
