Re: ...for the jazz cats ...

8Mile,

To "rip" is to copy something onto your computer.
It's usually used concerning music or video pieces.
If you lend me an album for me to try out, and I really like the music, I can "rip"...

Re: TOM TUNING

Right on, Winegums.
Its never occurred to me that I needed anything more.
Nobody's ever complained about the sound of my drums.
Seems like you've had the same experience.

Re: TOM TUNING

I AM one of those "old school cats".
At first, yeah, I muffled the crap outta my drums, but as time went on, I pulled more and more muffling off.

Re: TOM TUNING

I'm very happy for Bishop, but it makes me wonder....for those that have been doing this for long enough to pre-date the internet....how did we ever accomplish this with just a drumkey?

Steve,

It's cool.
Just seemed a little thin, compared to what I've seen listed at Keller dealer sites....however....Everyone used to say the 8 ply Keller shells were 6mm thick, too, so I guess...

This explains why he hasn't answered my question.

DRUMSHELL BONNIE - where did you get your stats from?

Re: I need a bigger car for a bigger kick drum

I fit a similarly sized kit into my '68 VW bug back in the 80's. Had room for a passenger, too.
The next car was a '73 Chevy Vega GT Wagon. My WHOLE kit (add 12TT and 14FT to yours), 3 guitars and a...

Re: I need a bigger car for a bigger kick drum

Could you buy a small trailer and just put all your stuff in there?
....then you'd have room for the rest of the bands stuff in your car. =)

You'd have to build the box (not that hard), but less...

Re: The worst drum /cymbal purchase you ever made

Those would be Mainline drum sticks.
Yeah, I don't think they're around anymore.

Re: The worst drum /cymbal purchase you ever made

My worst drum purchase - 5-piece Pulse kit, in the late 90's.
I've owned a fair number of generic drums in the past, so I'm pretty used to the performance of such drums, but this kit had shells that...

Re: TOM TUNING

Maybe.
My point is that they were on the drum when you heard the sound that you like.
They were definitely a factor in that sound, so it would stand to reason that reinstalling them would at least...

Re: TOM TUNING

If the Ludwig reso's were "Weathermaster MEDIUM" heads, that's probably part of your problem.
Those were THIN weight heads, similar to Remo Diplomat.
You now have G1 on the reso side. G1 is similar...

Re: SNARE TUNING

well, in that case, yeah, you're going to hear the buzz.

Re: SNARE TUNING

Dignan,

You didn't mention anything about adjusting the snare tension, so I'd like to address that.
With the snares turned on, loosen them until they get "rattly".
Then slowly tension them up...

Sometimes big floor toms can have a "rumble" to their sound.
