Re: Removing metal washers from tension rods

+1 To This

This is what I would do. I think I did this about a year ago when I thoroughly went through a new used kit, Tama Artstar Custom. After I ditched the old heads, cleaned the drums,...

Re: Dave Lombardo snare circa 1990

Well, who knows what he recorded with, but it looks to be some sort of Artwood 14x6.5 in the Seasons In the Abyss video. I have the 14x8 version and it sounds awesome.

I was just listening to...

Re: StarClassic 100% birch

Tell you what, I have two Tama kits. One is a birch Granstar, the other, is an Artstar Maple Custom. I like both kits, but if it came to pure sound, I would go with my birch Granstars every time. ...

Re: Holy Grail of Drum Kits?

I have been thinking about this very topic as of late. I don't NEED a new kit, but I have been keeping a vigilant eye open for a holy grail / end game kit.

All of my drum kits have 22" bass...

Re: Thinking about buying a Ludwig Vistalite kit. Thoughts?

Update,

So I decided against this purchase. I had the money ready to go and did some thinking. I think the kit looks fantastic. But it's not MY kit. I think its a great deal and someone will...

Re: Thinking about buying a Ludwig Vistalite kit. Thoughts?

LOL. No, I don't have them yet. I have some logistical issues that are keeping me from going and picking them up. I saw the add on Friday and head back from the poster after the banks closed on...

Re: Thinking about buying a Ludwig Vistalite kit. Thoughts?

I am interested in seeing just how much louder they might be compared to my Artstars. I would love for the bass drum to be a good bit louder. My guitarist uses three heads and three cabs and my...

Re: Thinking about buying a Ludwig Vistalite kit. Thoughts?

Sleeping on it. Mostly due to the rain here and the fact that I have an uncovered 4X4 truck to pick them up with. I might be able to squeeze the bass in the front seat and sudo cram the floors in...

Re: Thinking about buying a Ludwig Vistalite kit. Thoughts?

A minor thing is the configuration of having the tom in a snare basket. I have, and prefer toms mounted on bass drums. I see that it has that as an option. I am not sure if the tom has any...

Thinking about buying a Ludwig Vistalite kit. Thoughts?

I know that they are supposed to be a little louder than their wooden brothers. I am fine with that. I play in a crushingly loud rock band anyway, so no problems there.

I found these on CL last...

Re: Searching for the old school but loud

I have no problems lugging around my Tama Artstar Customs around. I guess I really don't think of them as heavy. Maybe I should schlep someone else's drums around to see how light other kits are. ...

Re: Thinking of selling my starclassic maples :-(

Hey lebreton,

Sorry you are kind of down on your sound right now, but I think you can change that as easy as you change a head and turn a drum key.

I have a great set of Tama Artstar Customs. ...

Re: Gig vs. Studio kit

When I was in high school, my sisters had a party at the house and I came into my room to see my most prized possession, my nine-piece Tama Granstar kit with one of the toms on the rack pushed down,...

Re: Tama Bell Brass Snare on Ebay

Well, not THAT one. I feel that the old Tama piccolo has a bad lug design. The tension rods at the opposite ends of those square lugs pull at opposite directions until they are turn and are off...

Re: Gig vs. Studio kit

I can't say that I have a studio kit, but I have a kit that has sentimental value that stays home. But I don't really want much in the way of a prom queen that I can't take to the dance. I want to...

Re: Ludwig Legacy or Limited Edition Stainless Steel

I feel that the Ludwig SS will always have a "cool" factor to it that is hard to match. I have listened to a few recordings that have sounded good, not great. It might just be that they don't come...

Re: Star or Collector's

Thank you. I like how they sound and they are great for what I am using them for. And these are the first non-black drums I have ever owned.

Re: 20x20 vs 20x18 bass drum?

I listened to a band that we played with the other night at our show. The drummer had a Trick kit. I believe his bass drum was 20" X 20", maybe 20" X 18". I could barely hear his kick. And, it...

Re: Star or Collector's

I think both are VERY nice quality drums, and both are fairly expensive. Okay, in the case of the Tama Star line, they are WAY expensive. I have played both, albeit the bubinga version of the Star...

Re: What is the best modern Ludwig Kit that creates Bonham's sound?

I am not sure if you plan on playing out very much, but here is something worth considering.

If you go with a 26" bass drum and put that bass drum in a case, soft, but even more so hard, it can be...
