Re: Acrylic Kits

Phattie also uses all RCI acrylic shells, with the same bearing edge I'm guessing the sound would be closer than your ears could tell apart. 2cents2ya.

Re: Any UK Truth drum dealers?

Craviotto steam-bends all their shells in-house, they are not using Keller.

Re: Custom Drums - Truth, Shine, SJC...

Probably out of the PDP molds. DW has relationships with a couple of builders to supply shells. I do not know if these are made in the DW plant or the PDP plant, but I'm sure the shell quality and...

Re: "Best" Custom Drum Shop?

Ought to check out Black Label for a quote, just for comparison. Most three-piece bop kits are floating around the $1300-$1600 mark. Ludwig Classic prices for high end work.

Re: Meg White

Actually, if you youtube "Phattie Drums", you'll find select videos from touring professionals laying down some funky grooves and solos, and a bunch of product videos from the lighted kits/carved...

They've been having some internal problems for about a year, you're not alone:

Re: which custom drums company to go with?

Just a few minor points of clarity. Phattie's use 6-ply toms and 10-ply snare drums standard, while the Spaun drums are 8-ply on everything. The Phattie dual 45 bearing edge has a much...

Re: Shell Quality: DW vs. Keller

With all this debate about DW and Keller, what sounds better, what are the differences, etc., here's something to ponder along with the debate:

DW does not own shell molds in every size. For some...

Re: Cheap custom kits?

While I see what you're trying to do here, perhaps a little more research on your end is due. C&C hasn't been to NAMM in years, that's not where bill is coming from on this.

Re: which custom drums company to go with?

It all comes down to overhead and how a company allocates it's resources. Big companies have big bills and different expenses to cover. When you buy a Sonor kit you are getting an incredible set of...

Re: which custom drums company to go with?

There are actually quite a few shops that build 10/16/24 setups in the $1500-$1600 range. If you can live without a super brand name, you can get exact the same shells, lugs, hoops, heads, spurs,...

Re: Wood hoops on Acrylic?

If you look around on youtube for "eli young band" and "chris thompson", you'll find a bunch of clips of a 6-piece acrylic kit with Yamaha wood hoops. The toms were 10/12/14/16, 22" kick, 14"x8"...

Re: American made drums

I would be surprised if any major manufacture is having their lugs made in the U.S. Companies that do the sort of volume that Ludwig and Gretsch do with low-end kits have great relationships with...
