Re: 15" snare drums..pros and cons?

For a while I used my Ludwig Classic 12" x 15" marching snare in my main kit. It was just awesome in the authority and dynamics department! Ultimately, the 15" width was not comfortable enough for...

Re: Big band percussion advice needed

I play percussion as well as a drum kit and even though they are interrelated it requires two different skill sets and two different sensibilities about what to contribute to a song. IMO, when...

Re: How to get rid of rust on rims?

I second the aluminum foil / coke suggestion. It works very well.

Re: Drums and allergies

I am also allergic to cats. Taking some meds in advance is good and I also use a nasal wash (available in a drug store) afterwards to remove the dander that I've inhaled.

Re: What's the worst kit you've had to play on?

The worst kit I've ever played was my first drum kit! A POS used St. George MIJ that my parents bought for me when I was fourteen.

Re: (possible) technical drum riser question

Yes, Razor, that would take care of the air resonance issue but styrofoam is pretty rigid so it may vibrate against the wood frame and it will deteriorate over time which means lots of little pieces...

Re: (possible) technical drum riser question

Hi Liv_rong,

If you will be doing any type of serious recording in this room the more attention you pay to reducing potential problems with the riser the better the final recordings will be.

Re: (possible) technical drum riser question

I do have a few suggestions that will probably help the situation but they would require some disassembly and modifications. Some of the modifications would be relatively simple and some more...

Re: (possible) technical drum riser question

Hi Liv_rong, The riser looks very good and well built. What are the "undesirable effects" you mentioned?

Re: (possible) technical drum riser question

If the adjustable legs are only around the perimeter the center will probably sag to some degree.

Any structure will have passive resonance (as Bretton implied). You can minimize that by damping...

Re: (possible) technical drum riser question

If the bottom section of the wood riser gets wet it will eventually get mold or rot and the fasteners will rust. It may also warp once it dries. Maybe paving stones between the floor and the riser...

Re: What Kind of Wood is This??

It looks Luan to me as well. It has the coloring of beech but not the grain pattern.

Re: What's with ash?

Hi Andy,

How thick is the ebony stave shell? How would you describe it sonically? BTW, it is beautiful!

Thanks,

Barry

Re: Tell me about plies

Hi Andy,

I just saw a prototype Gretsch 3 ply kit at NAMM (didn't hear it, though). Those are probably the shells to which you are referring. The kit looked great and the shells did not have...

Re: Vintage Sonor snare, need help identifying!

The spacing of the lug holes is not correct for Sonor teardrop or Phonic style lugs, the rerings are not correct and there are too many holes around the throwoff mounting. I suggest searching for...

Re: Vintage Sonor snare, need help identifying!

I own quite a few Sonor drums, including Sonor Lite. That is not a Sonor shell as far as I can tell from the photo. Please post more photos of the shell and hardware.

Re: Vintage Sonor snare, need help identifying!

Sonor Phonic drums did not have rerings. Is there a stamped number code inside the shell? What is the handwriting on the inside?

Re: How to stop customers from pawing cymbals?

There is no problem with that as long as the person buying it has been informed that the cymbal they are buying has been out on a dealer's sales floor and used for audition and demonstration...

Re: How to stop customers from pawing cymbals?

Yes, under best circumstances a cymbal should be auditioned before the purchase. If a cymbal on display at NAMM would be considered a "demo" why is a cymbal on the display floor at a dealer not...

Re: How to stop customers from pawing cymbals?

Let's forget the car dealership analogy. It's just confusing the issue.

My point is that the seller of the cymbal should fully disclose the state of the cymbal that is for sale.
