Re: Drum Gear I Dislike/My opinions

Love this thread!! I'm going to come to the party with this...

Drummers who are way better than me (in a "I hate you because you're so damn good kind of way!)
People who spend more time worrying...

Re: Yamaha Rock Tour

I own and tour one, its a killer sounding kit! The hardware (hoops and lugs but not Tom mounts, legs and bass drum spurs) are matte finished, but it's paint and not powder coat, so under gigging use...

Re: New Kit Needed

I play a rock tour. They're awesome. Have toured mine for about a year or so (hard!) and yes it does have some battle scars because of the matte finish, but it still sounds great! You can grab a...

Re: Categorise this wood + other questions/help

And back on topic, the picture isn't very clear, but the inside of the shells looks far too light to be mahogany. Mahogany is very dark in colour compared to that.

An easier way to get a better...

Re: Need recommendations for gigging set

Forgive me if m wrong, but this seems like the music in the background is not what is being shown..... About halfway through the guy with the KISS les paul does what I think is an upward whammy bar...

Re: DW Rata Drums?

as far as I'm aware, the Tama Octobans and Ddrum Deccabons are made of fibreglass or acrylic, whereas the DW are wood. That'll warm em right up!

Re: 60's Ludwig bass drum holes??

It all depends what the overall intention is. You can fill the hole with a plethora of things, but they'll all be obvious if you don't refinish it. There isn't a huge amount of point filling them if...

Re: snare or heads and hardware?

To me, its a no brainer. Heads and hi hat stand all the way, or start looking for a snare only job in a marching band......

Re: Urgent! Good trade deal???

its a 10 lugger kick drum. The more I think about it, the more I think it's a good deal. Think I'll pull the trigger on it. Cheers!

Re: Urgent! Good trade deal???

I have not, the guy is a 7hour drive from me. It looks like the older beech custom, not the newer one. I can't find a lot of info on it at all though. I'm assuming its MIJ, and assume it'll be killer...

Urgent! Good trade deal???

Ok in a nutshell I've been offered a Yamaha Beech Custom 3pc shell pack for my Mapex Meridian Exotic 4pc shell pack. It's a straight trade, but I don't know a lot about the beech custom... Is this a...

Re: What size is your main snare? Why?

I have a few, but my go to share is a 14x6 SJC maple 10 ply with re-rings. It just works! The tone is punching, loads of body, and its got enough volume not to need a mic at some venues.

Re: gluing a bass drum ring back onto the head.

Any super glue will do it, it's just sticking to plastic, but most aftermarket ones you can buy (I use Holz) come with an attachment ring that affixes is properly and gives it a lip to stop it...

Not my scene, but kinda cool! Just be aware if you've sprayed Directly over chrome hardware it'll probably flake real quick.....

Re: Most useable gear - what do you pick?

Sadly no. Both finishes are discontinued, and the bop kit will be living in the studio almost permanently, only coming out 2-3 times a year when needed. Rest of the time it'll be for teaching and my...

Re: Musashi oak vs Yamaha copper snare

You've kind of answered your own question! I'd go for the oak. I think it'll suit your vibe better. If you can try them both side by side, you'll be sure. I personally never but without hearing a...

Most useable gear - what do you pick?

Ok another wonderfully hypothetical (sort of) listing exercise for you all.

Re: Question for Premier Drum Experts

Agree that a grand is overpriced. Ifyou are really after a cool bop kit, and this will be, I'd be paying about however much a new Sonor Safari/Meridian Bop/Silverstar bop is in the US. It's a...

Note that the higher quality AA crash is keyholed to hell and back.... I'd pass. As for the labels, it's feasible someone bought some and stuck them on. It could be a remo badged kit from factory...

Re: birch/bubinga or maple?

The cut of the bearing edge and the heads will provide more tonal difference than the species of wood on a ply kit. Also the shell thickness, hoop choice etc etc. will have an effect.
