Re: What drums intrigue you that you have NEVER owned

The Mapex Orion in teal burst has haunted me for years.

Re: Base Drum volume. HELP Please talk me down off this ledge.

First, who's going to carry it?

Second, there's a reason why 18" speakers have such big cabinets. I'm no expert, but in my experience, the bigger the box, the deeper the sound (to a point). A...

Re: Audix I5 vs Shure SM57 comparison video

I'm pretty sure I'll always prefer a 57 on the snare until something is head-and-shoulders better for about the same price. This feeling happened to me whenever I heard an Audix D6 on a kick for the...

Re: I wonder if Neil Peart will ever play again?

He's so quiet and private, I seriously doubt we will hear from him again in terms of playing seriously. I mean, what else do you want him to do that he's not already done a hundred times before?

Re: What drums intrigue you that you have NEVER owned

I don't even know if I'd buy any of these if I had the money, but I've always wanted to at least play a set to see what they sound(ed) like.

In this order:

Sakae Almighty Birch
Tama Bubinga...

Re: Shell Bank

When I bought my Pork Pie USA drums, I wanted a drum set that had a 10, 12, 14, and 16 with a 22" kick although I never intended to play a full 6-piece drum set. In the 15 years that I've had them,...

Re: Deep bass drums

I played a "travel" kit by a high-quality drum maker which featured a 20" x 12" kick at a friend's house. The kick doesn't sound that great IMO.



No problem Larry! However, if you start...

Re: Rediscovering your "other" gear

Every time I take my Ludwig Centennials out, I'm reminded how awesome they sound...especially for a "beater" kit.

Re: What's your favorite cover (maybe limit to 2-3 songs) that your band plays right now?

This sounds like a fun show! I'd love to know your set list.

Re: Deep bass drums

I still like the look and sound of a 22 x 18 kick (I have two of them).

I'd thought about getting my Ludwig "beer can" 20" x 20" cut down to a 20" x 14".

It doesn't look that bad without the...

Re: New kit time :)

I've not played either the Pearl Reference or the Sonors.

If you want loud and punchy, I'd go with Ludwig Maple Classics.

But that's just me.

Re: Turning Points?

During my first 22 years of playing drums, I played either at church or in various Christian bands. Whenever I gigged, it was usually at a Christian-based club, coffee shop, church, youth rally,...

Re: Ever have a drumming dream?

Yup, I have the anxiety dream of setting up in the middle of a gig pretty often, and when I finally get set up, I can't hit anything because it's drifted forward/away.

Re: How to trawl craigslist for deals

The only person I ever saw with those was Terry Bozzio, but then again, he's had about 5 of everything.

Re: Metal drumming, help me choose between theses 3 sets

My first bit of advice? Buy used, and that way, you can pretty much get anything you want with a $2500 budget.

With that said, here's my opinion:

Saturns first, Pearl second, Tama third.

I...

Re: How to trawl craigslist for deals

Here's another trick you can use to search ALL of CL if you are looking for something specific.

Let's say you are looking for a Ludwig snare drum.

First go to Google.

Then, type exactly this...

Re: Why are drummers/musicians/music-listeners so defensive online?

Because everyone is 10 feet tall and bulletproof online. Meeting and talking in person is a different thing altogether.

I never comment on anything, but when I do, I usually use this...

Re: Anybody like big bass drums?

I don't think I could roll from one tom to the other without throwing my back out or sitting on a stool with wheels on the bottom.

Re: Volume or resonance?

Something that has a lot of volume but not a lot of resonance: A gun shot.

Something that has a lot of resonance but not a lot of volume: Gently hitting a 4-foot gong

Re: Bd size options / experience

I should probably give a disclaimer that I primarily Americana, country, bluegrass/newgrass, a little rock-n-roll, and worship music. I'm not a jazz/be-bop player in the least bit. I always muffle...

Re: In the studio

I wish you could send your audio to Glenn Fricker at Spectre Sound Studios and get him to mix it for you. I'm not big into metal anymore, but I've only heard good stuff coming out of his studio.

Re: If you could decide for your favorite manfacturer's standard sizes?

20 x 14 kick
12 x 7 rack
16 x 14 floor

I'd like to see a 6-ply (2 mahogany, 2 poplar, 2 mahogany).

Re: PEARL SESSION STUDIO SELECT VS PEARL MASTERS MAPLE COMPLETE

If that's your budget, buy used and get something better.
