Default Greetings from Quebec, Canada!

Heyyyy!

I'm new to this place, and I'm going to buy my new drum kit this weekend, switching from an old "TRAK" drum kit worth something like 100$ to a TAMA SUPERSTAR... While I'm here I need you guys to tell me if this is a good deal!

Here is the picture, if any of you can identify the model and make... I'd love you!


I'm getting all this for 600$ + another 500$ in cymbals (Hi-Hat, 17' Crash, 20' China, Ride) all Zildjian. Going to inquire on the exact models. I was told this kit was worth more than 3000$ fully equipped (with all the stands, and the kit itself, and the cymbals... etc) I'll take a picture when I get it!

So yeah... Also, wanted to know where I can get 2 extra toms for it, since it only comes with one! It comes with the 12' tom, and I'd need the same set toms, the 8' and the 10'.

________


Soooooooooo a little about me...

I'm a french canadian, I listen to technical progressive melodic death metal ! Haha yeah, complicated stuff. Probably gave you a headache too! :) My goal is to eventually be able to create and play this style. For now, I'm a newbie and started playing 2 months ago. Had a hard time with the money beat but after 2 months I'm now playing some bullet for my valentine, which isn't really bad I guess! Didn't take any classes or courses either.

I'm a self-teaching person, I'll rarely go and pay for teaching services, the internet is a vast learning place!

So yeah, I love hockey, and I follow the Detroit Red Wings since I was a little kid, even though I live in Montreal. My main interests are computers, hockey and drumming (+ music of so many genres, mainly progressive death).

Glad to meet you all and I hope I get a lot of information here from you all! I hope I can become something pretty good in the upcoming months/years ! :)

~ Sébastien

OK, I'm kinda confused by you wording. Are you getting everything for $600 .... or are you paying $600 for the drums, and $500 for the cymbals?
Superstars (new) run around $750. And if you pay sales tax up there, then that's more. So, good deal, maybe not. So so deal, perhaps.
As far as the cymbals go, series (model) is extremely important. I'd venture to say, pass on the cymbals. A guy with a Superstar kit is probably not going to have Zildjian A, A Custom, or K cymbals. And if he does, he's gonna advertise that fact. So, if he's selling ZBT's, ZHT's, or ZXT's, I'd pass on the cymbals. Unless, of course, the whole package is $600, out the door. If that's the case, not a bad deal.

You've already identified the make (Tama) and model (Superstar) yourself.

Default Re: INTRODUCTIONS: Please Use This Thread To Introduce Yourself!

I have been thoroughly enjoying this forum for the past few weeks, so I figure its finally time to introduce myself!

Real name? - Mark

Age? - 27

How long have you been playing? - around 8 months.

Origin of user name? - Jimmythemonkey has been my pseudonym since I was a child - it's a long and illogical story

Your top 5 drummers? - Dave Grohl, John Bonham, Taylor Hawkins, Stanton Moore, Brad Wilk

Make of drumkit? - Ludwig Centennial Moto kit with Ludwig Black Magic Snare; Roland TD-4KX2 with a couple of additions

Make of cymbal? - Zildjian 21" A Sweet Ride, 19" K Custom Hybrid Crash, 20" A Custom EFX Crash, and 15" Light K hi-hats.

Where do you practice? - Mostly at home. After the sun goes down I practice on my Roland kit to spare the neighbors.

Are you in a band? - Sort of, I play once in a while with some of my MBA classmates. We mostly play parodies for school posterity.

Do you play covers or originals? - Covers. I much prefer to mimic my favorite sounds than create new ones of my own. My brother is the creative one.

What style of music? - Mostly hard rock and classic rock, but I mess around in other genres from time to time.

Favourite take out food? - craft beer

What country do you live in? - Atlanta, GA, USA

One really odd fact about yourself? - I have lived in 27 different places in my 27 years.

How did you start drumming? - I played guitar for close to 15 years, once in a while dabbling on my brother's drum set. I got a Roland eDrum kit last fall and have never looked back at my now dust-gathering guitars. The stress relieving qualities of banging on drums are unparalleled.

I'm getting the drumkit for (2 floors, 1 bassdrum, 1 snare, 1 tom 12') for 600$
The cymbals (Hi-hat, Crash 17', Ride (don't know size yet), chinese 20') all Zildjian for 500$
All the cymbal stands and tom rack + other accessories : 280$

That's close to 1400 for the whole kit with cymbals and everything. The guy told me this kit can be worth an easy 3000 with everything I've got on it. Why do you say they're only 750 ? I've seen them everywhere way more expensive than 750 used!

The cymbals are Zildjian K series.
I need to find the extra 2 toms that I'm missing, 8' and 10' in this color, used for a good price, anybody have them?

Hi and welcome. The deal you mention doesn't sound good to me. Way too much. Zildjian K's are nice but $500 for 3 cymbals? Eh.... I am always wary of the "take-all-this-stuff-off-of-my-hands" deals that include everything but the kitchen sink. It's important to be patient when buying used. It is a buyer's market so YOu have the upper hand. For $1,400, my oh my, you can get close to a used professional kit for $1,000 (Mapex Saturn, Yamahas). Stands/hardware for $150-200 total. Cymbals maybe $400. But look, you can get the same deal this seller is offering and get a professional kit instead of a "decent" mid-level kit you'l probably want to replace at some point down the road.

Wait and be patient. Keep looking :)

Default Orlando love

Hey everyone, my names Conor and i live in Orlando, Florida. im 21 years old and have been drumming for a few years, i actually bought my first drum kit on the night of Barack Obama's presidential inauguration. I play in a local band named Swallow (https://www.facebook.com/SwallowMusic) we don't have any quality recordings yet but we will soon. I own a Tama Swingstar kit ( my first kit) and a Tama Artstar 2. My current mostly used snare is a Tama Artwood 8x14. Im still rocking on some starter Tama cymbals due to being a broke college student. I don't know too much about drums just how to hit them.So i hope this website will help to teach me a thing or two about them.

Welcome! I had some good times in Orlando back in the day. Last I was there stayed at some fancy hotel downtown, skateboarded when everyone else was getting valet parked and saw a good punk show.

Real name? Kelly (...easy)
Age? 27
How long have I been playing? I started when I was 13, played intermittently after high school and during college; took serious lessons for about 2.5 years until a little more than a year ago; am now trying to get back into it since i'd like to continue practicing.
Origin of my username? ...apparently not thoughtful enough ;)
Top 5 drummers? Jon Fishman, Steve Gadd, Phil Collins, Bill Bruford, Dave Grohl
Make of drumkit? Tama Rockstar (same kit since I was 13)
Make of cymbals? Sabian
Where do you practice? I haven't really been able to for the last few years since I moved into an apt and now a condo (although parent's house where my kit is isn't too far). I'm actually looking into electronic kits right now (feel free to message me if you have recommendations/thoughts!!)
Are you or were you in a band? Sort of: I'm playing on and off with my first band (it's hard to get together regularly). Now, I'm starting to talk with other friends about making a new band (while keeping the first band in the routine).
Covers or originals? Both
Style of music? Progressive rock, classic rock, hard rock, funk, reggae, (good) pop. Pretty much anything (with rock being my go-to, obviously), although there are some exceptions -- e.g., country.
Take out food? Ledo's Pizza
Country? USA
One really odd fact about yourself? Each finger i have represents a drum or cymbal on a drumkit so i can play wherever and whenever. :)
How did I start drumming? I actually started on guitar (played from about 11-13) but then moved to drums and never really looked back.

Welcome and don't worry about being a late bloomer....I'm almost 45 and I started a little over a year ago. There are several of us late starters here. Great that you and your son are doing this together. Looking forward to seeing pics and hearing your play. You'll get lots of great information and advice here.

Welcome and photos of the Rogers kit would be nice! Thanks.

Gotta give props to anyone who attempts to sing anything Journey. Getting anywhere near the vocals of Steve Perry is next to impossible. Looks like your band has quite the following according to your website pics.

Default Hi everybody...

I joined the forum a couple of weeks back.

I'm from Cheshire, in the north of the United Kingdom, but currently living in Lancashire.

Started drumming at the age of 11, joining my first band with my older (17) mate Sean when I was 12. I played in bands until the age of 18 then threw my drumsticks and kit away in a huff when the band I was in refused to take up a residency covering Beatles songs in a hotel on the Isle of Man. I saw it as a a dream come true, a group of teenagers playing music they loved for the price of accommodation, drinks, food, and a small wage. My friends who were in the band disagreed, bottled it, and went to university.

I never really forgave them.

I met one of these lads about 10 years later when I was 30 and we hooked up, formed a quite brilliant band, and very nearly got signed until the two guitarists fell out and started fighting...and we subsequently broke up.

I dropped drums again at the aged of 36...just became impractical to play at home.

The strangest part of my musical life is that my friend Sean...you remember...the one I was playing in bands with when I was 12 (we've always kept in touch and been friends)....rang me about three weeks back asking if I fancied playing drums in a band...I said no...but he persuaded me to sit in for a weekend rehearsal so that they could record some demos with a view to recruiting a drummer....

I'm now joined up again in a band, and have just purchased my first Electronic Drum Kit to facilitate home practice.

The first rehearsal was absolutely, mentally, stupidly good...it's like we'd both gone back 30 odd years....instant click....and absolutely outrageously good covers....we did I Wanna Be Your Dog (The Stooges), Blitzkrieg Bop (Ramones), EMI (Sex Pistols) and a couple of self-penned songs.

The band has been named....Midlife Crisis ....and we're available for weddings, funerals, and Bar Mitzvah's.

Hahaha...

The biggest regret in life...not continuously playing drums from 11 to 43...I think I might have been a decent drummer if I'd played for 32 years....regretfully I've hamstrung myself by taking to many long sabaticals away from the hobby for all manner of reasons...sigh.

Hey man, welcome to Drummerworld. Cool that your back, playin' in a band, bangin' on the tubs.
Don't worry, that you "took a bit of a break" .... just enjoy the fact that your back in the saddle, now. Your never to old to start, or start back up.
But, we like pictures (eye candy), so ya gotta post some pics of your kit(s).

Yeah, what Harry said. And I too would never forgive band members who prevented me from getting paid for playing Beatles songs. If you are to cover ANY band's songs who better than the Fab 4.

And I gotta ask, are there 4,000 holes in Blackburn, Lancashire?

Welcome.

Welcome.
I never did mate (forgive them).

I live about 15 minutes away from Blackburn and spent a couple of years, some considerable time back, rehearsing and gigging over there and it's vicinities, Burnley, Preston, etc. (playing original stuff by this time). We were in the van on the way to our first gig in Blackburn and drove past some roadworks...all four of us in the van looked at each other and sang "...."....well you know what we sang !!

Real name: Ben
Age: 27
How long have you been playing: About a week...
Origin of user name: It's the name I gave to a character I drew many years ago (about 10 years ago). It was a winged sort of Grim Reaper type character, so he was carrying a scythe. The Latin for scythe is "falx", so I used the form Falcifer, meaning "scythe-bearing". Akin to Lucifer meaning "light-bearing" from the Latin "lux" for light... I used it for a few forums back then and stuck with it.
Your top 5 drummers: In no particular order, and for various reasons: Stewart Copeland, David Silveria, Dave Grohl, John Bonham, Danny Carey. As with most of my "top 5"s, this is subject to change at any time.
Make of drumkit: Sonor.
Make of cymbal: Paiste.
Where do you practice: In my bedroom.
Are you in a band: Not yet.
What style of music: Not applicable but I like a lot of different styles. Grew up listening to a lot of 50s and 60s rock n' roll. Listened to a lot of metal in my teens. Enjoyed plenty of rock (modern and classic), punk rock, rap, goth, indie, alt rock... I also listen to classical, opera, jazz, blues and anything that's good, regardless of genre.
Favourite take out food: Chinese.
What country do you live in: England.
One really odd fact about yourself: Probably not so odd among drummers but I'm left-handed for writing and right-handed for most other things, including drumming.
How did you start drumming: My brother bought Rock Band and I loved playing the drums on that, so I bought a cheap second-hand kit, which didn't get much use. I had to sell that and found myself really wanting to play the drums, so I bought a new (albeit entry level) kit.
