Not a drum, but I did grab a Fender American Standard Precision Bass in Jade Pearl Metallic. Should be here by the end of the week.

Re: Another guy asking for help with a decision....

I think its a pretty good deal as well. I hate e-kits, so I'd be all over that acoustic kit, looks in great condition.

Open Hand technique

Anyone made the switch from crossed hands to open hands? My drum career has a distinct hollow point in the middle, and while I'm kind of relearning the trade, I've been toying with the idea of play...

Re: The best reasons to become a drummer?

I dig the chicks, my fingers are too soft for them damn strings and I'll be damned if I blow into anything for a sustained period of time.

Drums rock! And the gear is sweet too.

Re: Drummers around 5'6" - What size drums do you have?

I use a 22x16 with a rack and the 8" deep toms. 20 would be sweet for height but I liked the sound of the 22 traditionally. I may still end up grabbing a 20 though.

Re: Who started 'here' long before they went 'there'?

I played in the orchestra, in our school system you could be in orchestra at 2nd grade, but not band until 5th grade. I didn't start playing at school until 8th grade. Since I was in a city orchestra...

Re: What's the oldest drum gear you own?

My Ufip Bravos are probably the oldest thing I own made in probably the 70s or 80s. I have a recording custom but it's 2013 vintage

Re: Upgrade cymbals or drums first?

Typically cymbals. Head choices and tuning give a range of workability to most any set.

Re: The Age-Old Question.. Birch or Maple?

I'll add one other comment. I hate both 8 and 13" toms. 8's are too small for me to hit, and 13's never fit in right with a 10/12/14/16 setup.

If I were you, I'd either get the 8 if you think it...

Re: The Age-Old Question.. Birch or Maple?

I'm with TheHeel, Yamaha birch all the way. I like Maple too, but Yamaha just makes such solid drums its hard not to recommend them at any price point.
