Re: Vintage Yamaha C200 kit- ready to gig!

I like the red bass reso---could be because I dislike white heads in general, or could be how cool the red looks on the red kit :)

Re: How to trawl craigslist for deals

I don't like f**king people over to make a buck---there are people who need to get a nice kit for a good price, and there are people who want to make a buck by screwing them---big difference!

Re: How to trawl craigslist for deals

Anyone who TROLLS for gear with the intent of making a profit falls somewhere between a cockroach, and that white stuff that builds up in the corner of your mouth when you are really thirsty.

Re: Hi guys. I cant tune

I have 2 pieces of advice---1) go to tunadrum.com, and follow the directions (you have to read it---no videos) 2) realize that if you are tuning your drums to sound good from the throne they most...

Re: And the wood hoop project is complete!

The bass drum looks fantastic with the black reso head---the white heads on the snare and toms make the whole thing look cheap---some Black Suede Remos would really look classy on that kit!

Re: 36" kick?

Local pickup only? good luck finding another idiot within driving distance that thinks this is in any way playable :(

Re: Decided to try this new look!

I would be afraid to take 1/4" off the hoops for fear of creating a weak spot. Home depot sells various hardwoods in 1/4" thickness, and it would be fairly simple to make some spacers to match the...

Re: Help finding specific Pearl tom lugs

Some of the higher end drums' lugs may be reproduced for restoration purposes I doubt you will find too much demand for new Forum Series parts. Your best bet is to look for orphan drums or even...

Re: Dented Shell

That thing needs some serious bodywork---since he said it is the same on both sides it's fairly obvious that it was done deliberately---Idiots should not be allowed to "work" on drums!

Re: Dented Shell

I guess nobody looked at the second picture---someone used a hammer to make the snare bed deeper---that is not normal :(

Re: Does adding this Tom make sense?

12, 13, 16 is the old standard. I'm not sure when the fusion sizes came out, or why. I personally can't stand the sound of those little toy 10" toms.

Re: Tuning toms and snare

Counting turns does not mean the lugs are all tuned the same---you need equal HEAD TENSION at each lug---tap the head at each lug until they sound the same. AFTER they are all at the same pitch you...

Re: Tuning toms and snare

I still don't understand why nobody wants to learn how to tune their drums properly---and easily---I can tune an expensive kit, or a cheap to sound great without any gadgets or phone apps in a few...

Go to tunadrum.com, and read through the whole thing---no videos, but lots of pictures and diagrams. Or you can watch 100 hours of YouTube videos and still be frustrated :( Tuning drums is not rocket...

Re: Crazy Ass Deals. Legit?

Re: Can a very (!) cheap drumset sound ok..?

That isn't a cheap drumset---it's a child's toy with expensive mics, and heavily processed sound. THIS is a cheap drumset that DOES sound good---without any electronic manipulation.

Re: 2 up with a 12" tom as the smallest

Another 12 13 16 fan here! Both of my current kits are 12x10, 13x11, 16x16, 22x14---I have no problem getting them to sound great---10 inch toms just don't sound right to me.

My daughter wanted to get my grandson a kit for his 8th birthday. He's been playing mine since he was 5, and wanted set at home. I told her I would handle it, and gave him one of my kits instead of...

I don't have a problem with Mapex---mine were very classy, and understated---especially on this kit :)

Re: Wood stain on a Fiberskyn !

I use Minwax Golden Oak on my Maple guitar necks---just slightly darkens the wood, and brings out the grain. Top it off with a couple of light coats of satin clear, and all is good. I don't see why...

Re: Wood stain on a Fiberskyn !

I like it! I can't stand the look of white drumheads, so maybe I'm a bit biased, but matching the bass reso to the color of the shells is a cool idea. The selection of different colors of wood stain...

Re: what to people mean by "cheap" drums?

This is an ultra-cheap kit---I paid $125 for the 5-piece set at a pawn shop. The shells are perfectly round, the bearing edges are flat and true, the lugs/mounts are solid, and the wrap is not...

Re: Sorry Neil......Ringo and Paul has much more "feel" than you

When I pay money to see a band that I like I expect to hear the music like it was on the record---and I certainly don't care to hear a bunch of improv by "the new guy" I can see a cover band for free...
