Re: Anyone ever try to poach your seat?

This guy sounds pretty naive to me. It takes a lot of meticulous work to build a band up to a high level. It's a living organism. Where your band has gotten to is as much due to you being a member as...

Re: The matching snare

The Paiste kit that was built for Danny Carey is insanely heavy. The bass drums each weigh 90 lbs.

Re: Pearl Masters Custom Maple

If you haven't bought the Starclassic yet you should get the Masters. Maple beats birch every time IMO. Both very good kits so hard to go wrong, but that MMX is the winner.

Re: Buying first kit, 2 options, which kit would you go for?

I agree with the Mapex voices. The consensus seems to be that you will soon need to upgrade the cymbals with the Tama and then at some point upgrade the kit too. Cut out the middle man and buy the...

Re: Vintage Ludwig & Ludwig drums

An old Ludwig showed up on CL yesterday for $300. I immediately emailed the seller and offered to buy, but someone got there before me. The seller didn't email a response and the ad came down while...

Re: Help me look....cooler? more relaxed?

Play with a cigarette in cigarette holder like the drummer from Cheap Trick. That guy looks like FDR playing the drums. As long as your playing is clean and charismatic you will win over the house.

Re: Female Drummer Project/Questionnaire

When describing a player to another drummer I will often say "you 've got to see this guy, he's amazing!". Am I not supposed to do that if it's a woman. "You've got to see this drummer, they're...

Re: Tuning "experts" mini rant

Both offer excellent tutorials. I use John's fundamental note method on my toms and Bob's lowest possible pitch on my bass drum (i'm a life long "crank the reso" snare man). I could not bring myself...

Re: Adding a tom to my DW kit

First look on eBay, there are a lot of orphaned 10" toms out there. If that doesn't work you will need to order it from your local authorized dealer. If you contact DW they will help you find a...

Re: John Good Interview

I've only ever seen a couple of drummers who use steam bent kits. Only one or two of the literally hundreds and hundreds of drum companies make them. If they sound so good then why does almost no one...

Re: (Keller) Shells, thickness, counterhoops, bearing edges...I need help

I have a Keller DW that features 5 ply shells with rings and a 16" Razorback that is also a 5 ply Keller without rings. They are 3/16 of an inch thick, which I think is too thin for a snare. I...

Re: Gretsch Catalina Ash

It's a nice, very capable kit. I used one in a studio a couple years ago. It looks and sounds impressive. Isn't the Z5 a pretty low level kit? If so then the Catalina will easily out perform it.

Re: A thought about definitions

Country,rock,pop,blues, these are all subgroups of popular music. The idea that you can't hear the difference between opera or punk rock is what I find confusing.

Re: I need a bigger car for a bigger kick drum

Re: Pearl Reference Snare

Never seen one up close but I've watched a bunch of video. I think they sound great. What color though. A great snare at a must buy price is like money in the bank unless its hot pink.
