Re: Alternative to Gretsch Renown Kit

The Gretsch USA Customs and Renowns sound too similar to be considered alternatives soundwise, unless of course the sizes are very different. The Brooklyns have a more open sound, but I think a lot...

Re: Gretsch Renown - thinking about buying

Have your drums arrived yet? It's hard to tell exactly which finish that is; transparent ebony perhaps? Also, did you show the guy at GC the Cascio ebay listing, because I can't find the...

Re: Pearl Free Floater (advice)

It could be my imagination, but I think the aluminum base plays a large role in the sound of these drums, probably even more than getting the lugs off the shell. I say that because in theory the...

Re: GRETSCH BROOKLYN mediocre bad quality?

This is not representative of any Gretsch drum I've seen. I would have your store order a replacement kit and inspect it before you take delivery.

Re: Gretsch Renown Maple 16" Floor

The 14x16 is available in shell packs, but despite being listed as an add-on (RN1-1416F at http://www.gretschdrums.com/?fa=drums&sid=747#specs), I've had several Gretsch dealers tell me it's not...

Re: Best Maple Drumkit around $1000

Check out a Gretsch Renown. I think the 30 degree bearing edges give it a fatter sound than, say, a Pearl Masters (which I think projects/cuts a little better) or others with the sharper 45 degree...

Re: John Good Interview

Not everyone likes the sound or look of DW drums, but they're obviously doing something right. As someone else said, hype/marketing only gets you so far. I don't know anything about John Good...

Re: Middle aged bands. How should they dress?

The other day, a guitarist friend was giving another a hard time about wearing white sneakers at a bar gig. He said, "When you're playing a blues gig, ask yourself: 'Would Freddie King wear this?'"

Re: Led's Latest Page

You could probably make a case that chemistry is even more important than talent (assuming a certain baseline of ability). Look at how many folks over the years have left a successful band and never...

Re: Do you call it a kick drum or bass drum?

Youtube viewers will hate on you no matter what you do, so don't worry about it.

I've always said "bass" drum, but I've heard a lot of folks say "kick" so I think it's pretty widely accepted....

Re: So what's up with Ludwig 2014

I've commented about this in other threads. This is the golden age of drum gear as far as a wide variety of quality options at all price points. Very few niches are unserved, and while that has to be...

Re: Pro level kit

I'm not sure how your drum comes out of tune with lug locks, but I can see how that would be frustrating. Maybe it's worth trying some cast hoops. Also, as long as you're changing heads, maybe go a...

Re: Refinishing Color Yamaha Recording Custom Drum?

I've never seen yellow RCs, but changing a rare color is only an issue if you're worried about resale value (and rare doesn't always mean desirable). If you plan on keeping and playing them, who...

Re: Did Ludwig do solid black drum hoops on WMP newer classic maples

I recently looked into ordering a Ludwig kit, and I think you have the choice of inlay or plain hoop.
And of course, logos are easily changed, and maybe the original hoops were damaged and replaced...

Re: Is the acoustic kit dying?

Re: Thinking of adding a tom - what size?

It sounds like you'd prefer an 8" tom. Are you wanting to add on because you feel there's a sound missing from what you use your kit for? Or are you just kinda bored with your current setup...

Re: The DW "When will Bo sell his new kit?" thread

I say January when I convince him to sell it to me at a smokin' discount.
Those are my sizes, and as a Southerner I dig the camo inspired finish.

Re: Gretsch brass snare vs. Black Beauty

For the sake of posterity, I just wanted to note that Gretsch does offer spun brass (http://www.gretschdrums.com/?fa=g4000sub&sid=599&fin=sb) shells in the G-4000 line, along with solid steel,...

It depends what you want. As far as finishes, I know Gretsch (USA Custom) and DW offer more colors than what you see on the website. Pearl's Masterworks series is probably the broadest option from a...

Re: David Garibaldi is the drummer you'd want in your band

Can you imagine playing something exactly the same way for decades? It's a fine line for artists like him, though (guitarists are really bound by this as well). There are certain details people...
