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...

Re: Tuning toms and snare

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?

I have to go with P.T. Barnum on this one---$3000 Yammies for $100? PPG is right---Identity theft here we come :(

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: Need some help choosing a snare.

This question has been asked 100's of times on here---try doing some research for yourself, and interacting with forum members for a while before asking a question like this. It's like asking a room...

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.

Re: Beginner Kid's Kit

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...

Re: Worst Badge in the Business

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...

Re: The one piece of gear you'll take to the grave

Since you didn't specifically say drum gear---this was my first electric guitar, and I will never sell her!

Re: guitars too loud, why?!!

Amazing how far this thread has strayed from the original post. It started out as practicing too loud, took a hard left at insulting each others' taste in music, continued down the road to insulting...

Re: Installing a tom mount on a virgin bass drum..

Just a thought---if you are using L-rod mounts on the toms there is no reason the down-tube needs to go through the shell---just cut it off at the height you need, and use a gasket under the mount....

That red Power V kit is pretty sweet for $400! And it comes with a snare!

Re: Need Deep Drums like Dave Grohl

I guess I must be stuck in the past along with the music that I play---Both of my kits are power tom sizes---12x10, 13x11, 16x16, 22x14, 14x6.5 snares.
2 toms on the bass with tube style mounts,...

Re: guitars too loud, why?!!

I have been playing guitar for 40 years, and grew up playing Van Halen, Sabbath, Led Zep, and all the '80s hair band stuff. There is NO reason to rehearse at concert hall volume in your buddy's...

Re: Advice on damage to bearing edge

Looks to me like someone used wood putty to fill in the gap instead of repairing it properly---if the bearing edge is cut correctly it won't make any difference---the head shouldn't even touch the...
