Re: Help - Meeting up with Guitarist

I totally agree! I'd play right away to see what happens and save the coffee trip if you bond through playing.

Re: The 20" shallower bass drum, not as easy to find as I thought

Ah, gotcha. I was in the market for a set with a 14x22 bass drum a year ago and I feel your pain. It pretty much got down to a Ludwig Classic Maple or the Yamaha Live Custom I ended up getting. ...

BAM > http://www.gretschdrums.com/?fa=drums&sid=743

Doesn't meet the color needs, but this caught my eye when it came out fairly recently.

Re: Am I the only one here that hated the Kick Port?

I've tried kick ports on several kits and they DO NOT always improve the sound. However, I had a Pearl Reference 18"20" and it slammed with the kickport. Made a world of difference on that...

Re: Only in the '80s....

Some of the youtube comments said he actually used this live with his kit? Lol... I'd be shocked.

Re: Yamaha Live Custom (Oak) review

What heads are you using on your toms, if you don't mind me asking? I have a set of Live Customs and have tried several different heads. Some people will snicker at this, but I just put clear Remo...

Re: Yamaha Drums

I hear ya man! I have a real nice '58 Reissue Les Paul that is my baby. I took it to a pro to have the frets leveled and setup and he did it while I waited. Yikes... He had files, sandpaper,...

Re: What do we think of drummers that deliberately play out of time?

LOL, right. The jazz guitarists (and I assume every other jazz musician) may say there is no wrong note. They all fall into a scale from any part of the world.

I'm not sure what to think about...

Re: Using a Metronome/Click on stage

I now use an android app named "visual metronome." As the name implies, it's for playing to a visual display instead of a click sound. Takes some practice, but it's great.

Re: Yamaha's Chinese Factory Quality

Re: Quality of new Chinese Yamahas?

I've owned an MIJ Oak Custom set, an MIJ Club Custom set, and an MIC Live Custom set and they are all great quality. Some differences (like bass drum claws), but equally great quality.

Re: The Best Hard Rock/Metal Snare!

Consider a new Ludwig Acrolite reissue or the Tama SLP models. All others mentioned are great too.

Re: Yamaha Drums

Nice kits! Any idea how I can get Yamaha bass drum t rods for my Club custom kit? That would be awesome.

EDIT - I see some on ebay, but man that's pricey. A couple hundred bucks!

Re: Toms with specific pitch - is this a problem

Ive read before where drummers or engineers tuned drums to be in the same key as the song, but I bet that's uncommon. I wouldn't worry about it if I were you, because nobody else will notice. ;)

Re: Drum stacking...

That's obviously the easiest way to store drums and take up the least amount of space. The circles left on the heads do bug me, though.

Re: About to order some Bonham sized Ludwigs Classic Maples. Got questions.

Also, I personally ended up liking smaller sizes and went back to a 14x22" bass drum and 10/12/14/16 setup (mixing and matching sizes out of those now.) This is just me of course, but if I did it...

Re: About to order some Bonham sized Ludwigs Classic Maples. Got questions.

I like what that "groovedrummer" guy does on YouTube (link 2 you listed.)

I had a Classic maple set in green glass glitter in 24/13/16/18. I hated the classic floor tom leg brackets, so good call...

Re: Using a 10'' tom as main rack

Yeah, I bumped this thread up myself after searching for threads where folks use a 10" rack tom as their only rack tom.

Your description of "punchy and pleasing" pretty much describes what I hear...

Re: Using a 10'' tom as main rack

Is it because a 10" rack tom and a 14" floor tom have clearer notes than a 12/16 combo?

I also find positioning easier with those sizes.

Re: Using a 10'' tom as main rack

I know this thread is old, but I'm having serious tuning woes lately on both of my kits. I can't get the 12" toms to sing a clear note. Always lots of overtones that you probably won't hear in a...

Re: How Does Your Bass Drum Sit?

I've been setting mine up to where it's more-or-less level with the bass drum pedal attached. That means it's not really that far off the ground in the front. The front lugs are barely above the...
