Re: Help identify a Premier drum set

To the first guy, it's an XPK, early 90's. It's birch/meranti/birch with black interiors. XPK is a lacquer finish while APK is the wrapped version. They are impressive sounding drums, originally an...

Re: Ludwig Bronze Piccolo - A good buy?

I own a Ludwig hammered bronze 3x13 from the mid 90's. It is easily the best piccolo I've ever heard. I generally don't disagree with Bermuda, but I think the bronze gives this size snare some...

Re: Advice on powered sub

Mackie HD-1501 or HD-1801. I own two of the 1801 subs with two SR-1501 cabs on top. All powered, built in crossovers, theyre just awesome. I've read a lot of good reviews about the 1501 as well. I...

Re: Country drummers!

Thx for your two cents. I play in a "modern country" cover band and your assessment of its worth is, well....pretty shallow. I come from a hard rock/metal background and my last band was a 50/50 mix...

Re: DW DIFFERENCES.....

Re: Looking for new kit with vintage sound?

Modern drums are pretty much unprecedented in terms of quality. High end lines are still as good or better than ever, but with a staggering, and at times overwhelming number of options. Of course...

Re: 2003 DW Collectors Series - Broken Glass finish

The internal microphone is called the May micing system. I believe that May is the last name of the guy whose internal mount is inside the drums. Without the microphones it does not significantly add...

Re: How sentimental are you about your drums?

Very!!! I bought my current set right after my mother died. Prior to I had saved to buy everything, always with a keen eye toward other bills. After she passed I had a f##k this moment, and in an act...

Re: Kick Drum physics experts in the house?

Check the reso port. The frequencies that come off a port can be out of proportion to the drum head. One other thing, you mentioned a number of ways that you internally dampened the drum, all of...

Re: The Speed Obsession

This exactly the point. Environment can explain why one twin is 5'6" and one is 5'8. There is no way to make either of them 5'0" or conversely, 6'0". Variances up and down within a generation or from...

Re: The Speed Obsession

Yes and they are good articles, but they refer to ontogenetic growth spurts. Specifically, the comparatively long growth of humans in relation to other primates and our ability to effect the overall...

Re: The Speed Obsession

Look at the evolutionary chain. From monkeys to proto humans to man the line gets taller (diet I guess?) and we are as a whole still getting taller, but according to you that's not evolution anymore....

Re: The Speed Obsession

Okay. I'll leave it with this, then you can say "unh uh" one more time, and we can stop this. Do you believe that jockeys or flyweight boxers can get taller by eating a better diet? Do you think...

Re: The Speed Obsession

I said that they are able to breed more successfully. Whether more often or more children or whether taller people live to breeding age more often I don't know, but it's one of those things. My guess...

Re: The Speed Obsession

We are getting taller because taller people are breeding more successfully, either more often or more offspring are surviving, or more tall people survive to breeding age. People don't get...

Re: 13" vs 14" snare

I have a 15" floor tom and can attest that it is significantly louder and deeper than a 14". The same way that my 14" snare is both louder and deeper than my 13". Interesting that though it is not as...

It's simple, they are morons! More realistically though, they are just different, different personality types, if you take my meaning. It's cat people vs. dog people. When you talk about production...

Re: Bass Drum Volume / Running Through PA

No one ever mentions this. The material inside the drum doesn't need to muffle the heads. The frequencies inside the drum have different lengths. Low frequencies move in large waves, about one will...

Re: 13" vs 14" snare

I have the 3.5x13 Ludwig HH bronze. It records like a dream, but lacks the raw volume of a bigger snare. It tends to get swallowed up by the Marshalls.

Re: How long does your snare cord last?

Never, but I don't use string and I have changed my snare wires on all of my snares at least once. Now that you mention it, that plastic strip is really durable.
