Re: Ludwig Legacy Mahagony

I remember Yamaha using Honduran (also known as broad leaved mahogany) and looking...

Re: Q Drum Co.

Nothing is wrong with Keller. If they make the best shells, I dunno, but certainly good ones.

Re: Musicians Say streaming Music will Leave them Broke.

When I ask my friends what music they listen and if they have spent money for music, most of them shrug and say, why I watch the music I like on Youtube.

Only a few buy songs at beatport or itunes...

Need a huge kick, is 60 inches enough?

Re: Q Drum Co.

Sounds like Keller shells to me. I heard many people saying good things of these "vintage" shells.

Re: YAMAHA QC fail! ☹

No, these are made in the new Yamaha factory in China as far as I know. The same one where they build the pianos btw.

You'll have to check by your own after reading all the people's input.

Having said so, would you consider to buy regionally?

If I had the money to spend a couple of grands for a drum set and...

Re: John Good Interview

I love listening to John Good, when he talks about shells, it's like he is talking about good old, red wine.

Personally I think they sound good, not terrific. Especially if I look at the price......

Re: Spaun TLII

Interesting, didn't know that DW was selling shells to other companies.

There is no indication that this set is made in the States, which is kinda strange. For the other ones there is a made in...

Re: Heuer Drums

Agreed. They should go for "Custom Assembler+Lacquerer" instead.

Re: Warm Wood Snare

You's probably have a look at mahagony or kapur, such as the Yamaha club custom snares and snares with roundish bearing edges in general.

I have recently tested a Yamaha Rock Tour snare and I'd...

Re: Closest wood to beech?

Are you asking because the SQ2 are very expensive?

I don't know, if you dig the sound of beech you should go for beech. Maybe try to find a used kit, Yamaha and Sonor (of course).

Re: Holy Grail of Drum Kits?

Mine would be probably a Le Soprano kit. Feature and construction wise they are very unique drums imo.

Re: Yamaha or Tama?
