Re: Drum Tuning Like This

as a rule of thumb my snare and kick heads (batter and resonate) get two half turns up from finger tight then I go from there.

Re: PDP X7 drumset

I like clear single ply heads on poplar drums. coated single ply heads also sound good. poplar has a surprisingly nice tone but it's not as tight or controlled as some other woods. I bet that finish...

Re: worth it?

my silly choice of words is to prepare myself for bad news that may come. I'm not all bad luck though, this set actually came in like new condition and the cymbals with barley any blemishes (which is...

Re: worth it?

I'm sticking with this kit for now. luckily only the hoop and wrap was damaged and not the drum itself. I'm going to get a new hoop. if the drum is fine I'll get over the scuffs.

is there anyway...

Re: worth it?

Re: worth it?

I got a pearl vision vb set. luckily they pack their drums pretty well so I didn't have any significant damage.. till I got to the 16" drum. one hoop jammed on the drum and it doesn't fit the drum...

Re: worth it?

so here's what's happening. the powerhouse set is pretty good. the toms and kick sound great, but the snare is choked. I think it's the lugs on it. I'm getting a different set since this one arrived...

Re: worth it?

what do you guys think? does it look like poplar or basswood? they look built well, but the wraps are a bit scuffed up. I also have two big knicks on the bass from shipping the floor tom in the bass...

Re: worth it?

Re: worth it?

I'm listening to the advice given to me. why do you think I'm getting a 20" kick instead of a smaller one? :p

I think I might stick with the powerhouse for now and see how they are.

Re: worth it?

I'll keep that in mind. when I had a 22" x 18" bass drum I only put a small pillow inside, so I probably won't put anything inside a 18" x 16".

in general is birch/basswood a decent combo for...

Re: worth it?

ok so it's come down to three bop kits. realistically two (I think). it's so hard to decide.
