Re: For The DW Fans... Has Anyone Seen One of These?

Purdy, but frankly, I'd rather pay 2.5k for a similar all bubinga kit and keep the extra $500 instead of spending it on what is essentially just maple.

Re: Mapex Saturn Shells

That's a walnut/maple Saturn. If it were basswood, the entire shell would look light, like maple birch etc look. Walnut is darker, however, and very very hard to mistake for basswood.

In addition,...

Re: Tama to China

Mapex is Taiwanese, by the way. And Taiwan is decidedly not communist.

Stuff being made in China doesn't automatically mean lower quality. It does mean that there are possible civil rights...

Re: Meridian Maple vs. Force 3007

They sound similar because they're made at the same factory in China/Taiwan. And they use the same wood. I've also found that you can get more for less with the Mapex Meridians as opposed to Sonor.

Re: Best all around snare drum

Bronze or copper may also be a good fit for you. They're both dark, with bronze ringing a bit and copper being pretty dry. Careful with the Acrolite/Supraphonic, they're higher pitched, which you...

Re: Would like opinions on a custom drumhead

I'm pretty sure I won't. I like the sound of a wide open, unmuffled, unported bass drum. But, at the worst, I'll still have the original project files and access to my friend, so he can add it in...

A friend of mine is working on designing a custom bass drumhead as the last piece of my drumset. "Moldy" is obviously my nickname (and I've has been for a long time), but I'd like to put some other...

Re: Tour custom or stage custom - learning

Many bands these days have drummers that use just two toms, or rarely use the other rack tom. I'd say go with what you love, because that'll motivate you to play. I love to drive, but I wouldn't love...

Charge by the hour for every hour of your time? Including setup time for their monster kits and tear down and what not.

Having someone jump off of or standing on my bass drum is about as appetizing to me as well.... hrm, I can't think of anything. It's pretty bad, though, in my mind. Besides, let him jump into the...

Re: $800 DW kit on Craigslist?

Beat up could add to the band image, if your image is grungy, hard-rock oriented.

Re: Which Snare To Choose?

The Danny Carrey is a good choice. Just be sure you want a really resonant metallic snare, because that's what the 8" depth will do to it. Unless you muffle it, and then what's the point... you lose...

Re: Drummers doing sound

If you want something done right, you gotta do it yourself. If you can settle for less than best, let someone else take over.

Re: Bass drum depth

As Aeolian said before, there's a strong bias here for shallower bass drums. Honestly, I think it's mostly because folks are enamored with Bonham and 70s rock.
