Re: Famous drummers mixing cymbal brands

I got to see a clinic with the great Will Calhoun back in the Living Colour heyday. He was Pearl and Zildjian and had just switched to Sonor about a year before. The local music store holding the...

Re: Yamaha Drums

No, I think it's for the fact that they'd have to sit on a 24" bass drum for forever. The other drums are listed separately cause they know they will eventually sell. 24" kick drums...in this day and...

Re: Stevie Wonder - Superstition

That's fine if you want to do that, but that absolutely sucks the soul out of the tune doing that. You don't need that powerful of a "microscope" to determine whether it's 16th notes slightly swung...

Re: Yamaha Drums

I agree. I was hoping for a pro birch line in 2015. And snares! They only have two pro snares in their lineup!

I'm patient. I have a feeling that they will announce when it's ready, and it will be...

Re: Yamaha Live Custom Oak - opinions?

I bought a set of Live Customs last July 2014. Amazing kit! So much so that I am switching over everything to Yamaha! Plan this year is to buy an AMH in Vintage Natural. 10-12-14-16-20 and snare.

Re: Confusion on rolls - open or closed?

Most of the time I play rolls, it's in a concert band setting. You're in essence sustaining a quarter/eighth/half note, so I always play them closed. Unless the director instructs to do otherwise.

One of the best kits I ever had the chance to play was a set of Yamaha Maple Customs. If you like hanging toms for floor toms, you will not be disappointed with an MC kit. Many of the kits being sold...
