Aged oak too. I think they'd actually sound quite good. The shape of the drums may well help prevent some of the standing wave issues in drums.

Nice!

Great bar band kit. I can hear the set list now:

"I Drink Alone"
"One Bourbon, One Scotch, and One Beer"
"She's Got the Jack"
"Whiskey in a Jar"
"Mass Tequilla"

and the list goes on....

There's more cheese in this thread than in a Parisian restaurant.

I swear I've seen those from somewhere before. Were they made by a particular crafter?

I'm indecisive in between posting one of these two options:

A:
Dude that suxx! The tom mounts aren't even freefloating. Who would play that kind of shit in the year 2012?

Yea that's right. Nobody. That way I'll never ever buy a Guru kit.

Go home and do some homework on drumbuilding.


or

B:
I think the badges are too big for the shells.


Sorry... it's friday night and it's a thread about drums made out of beer barrels. You cannot possibly expect us to give thought out answers to this.

Back when stave kits were made by coopers.
You could cut the bass drum in two and have a double bass kit.

I remember Peavey drums. There were some to try out back when I was studying in LA. These things looked totally shitty, but sounded incredible. Didn't they have this unique patent for free floating shells or something? I only remember these huge hoops that looked silly. Do they still exist?

An interesting kit that is, with an appropriate smell of whiskey each time you hit that bass drum, very tasteful indeed for a bar band kit :)

No, it wasn't a joke and it wasn't about KIS. But it was not an insult either. To whom? Why? I still don't get it.

I wrote something along the lines: "Peavey drums looked shitty but sounded incredible."

How would this be insulting to anybody? I loved the sound of these drums. Is it insulting now to state that the optical design of certain drums is "shitty" in my taste? Would you feel insulted if I said that Mapex design looks shitty? If so: Get a sense of humour and just chill out. You could feel insulted if I said: "YOUR drumset looks shitty" which I would never say and have never said to anybody.

I said something about a brand that I only once in my life played and never ever heard anything about again after that. I think you want to get into arguments if you're trying to make a case out of my post.

I still don't get how I was supposed to know someone in here plays Peavey. Who is that person?

Whoever you are: Congrats, your drums sound like nothing I have ever heard before or after.

OK, try this:

User CP

-> Edit Options

Uncheck Show Avatars.
Uncheck Show Signatures

Makes everything more readable.


I still believe it's in no way insulting to say a brand that obviously designed their products to sound a certain way and NOT look a certain way looks shitty. If you feel insulted, feel free to interchange "shitty" for "strange" or "unusual" and book it under "lack of english words from a not native english speaker".

I'd love to play one, I don't care about the look. These things sounded amazing.

Yes, I play peavey, no I wasnt insulted ( I think lugs look shitty...lol ) and no peavey doesnt make them anymore but there is a USA based company going to be releasing a similar design very soon as well as a couple of the big names are planning to release a lugless line of drums beside their top shelf line so I am told. Whitney drums also have a similar design but with the bridge being internal instead of external making the shell larger than the head and if you have seen Guru's new prototype to be released later on this year you would swear its the peavey radial drum reincarnated. Hey Andy, toss up a pic of the sweet Guru bass drum of yours for us to drool over....lol

You can still find some used here and there.
http://louisville.craigslist.org/msg/2813965467.html

My 6 piece shell kit was best part of $5000 back in 2000 when I bought them new, I picked up the matching 12" snare about 3 years ago and found the 8" tom at daddys junky music last spring. BTW the color differences in the bridges and snares are really much more subtle than they appear in the pics, I think its the way the flash reflects from the change in the grains from one segment to the next.




As for sound files I can do one better, check out whos playing what in this video, keep in mind that this particular drummer has a tendency to deaden his drums much more than I do, they can really resonate a lot more and without overtones.

LOL, naw, most everyone here is pretty good but there were some drum other forums a few years back that had an awful pick on the radial owners to the point that you could not post without being crapped on for owning less than entry level drums in their eyes, would have got more respect for owning a set of "First Act"...lol ( or mapex even...lol jk sticks jk BTW I saw that you got my back, thanks.)

Hey Tardy :) You know I'm a huge fan of the Radial Pro design. I thought the upper range Pros were superb drums, & I've actually discussed them in detail with Steven Volpp (the original designer & patent holder). Their super thin shells really work. Forget the aesthetic (I actually don't mind the look, but they are visually challenging for most), they sound fantastic, & those drums more than any other drum prove that most players buy with their eyes first, ears second.

As for getting upset by mild fun poking obviously delivered in the spirit of levity, may I remind everyone that Sticks referred to my prototype drum suspension chassis' as "bird cages"! I found that comment to be quite funny, not insulting in the least.

BTW, loving Roy's solo on that clip :)

Tard, your kit is nothing but AWESOME. For the first time on this forum, I'm seriously jealous of someones kit.

I have also played Whitney drums once back in LA. These also sounded great and looked weird.

It is this type of sound I want to have from my drums and I really hope that Guru will do something like that or something that will sound like that. But what exactly is a radial drum? And how does this work? I've only played the Peavey and Whitney kits once and haven't really checked out the construction behind it. Could you explain the concept to me a little?

Thanks.

Again: awesome awesome triple awesome kit. I'm really happy for you owning that thing!!

Well, you just never know :) If y'all really look into the detail of this thread, there's a few little hints tucked away in there.

As for explaining the Radial Bridge principal, I'll leave that for Tard, but like many very simple concepts, it really works. It's the looks that killed the Radial Pro kits commercially, not the sound. When they were released over a decade ago, they were sonically way ahead of their time, & in a different league to anything else at the time. Truth is, they still are :)

I also just checked out Whintey drums. Now I remember it better: Back when I was in LA (2001) they were just some prototype drums and Mike Shapiro really liked those, so for a day or two they were showcased and everybody was basically blown away.

They still exist and I think they look and sound fantastic. JimmyK is playing a kit and he is here on the forum. Maybe if he reads this he could explain how they sound and feel a little.

Great drums and nice were this thread lead by coincidence.

Is that the Whitney?



Love that raw look! (like the beer barrels too)




IMO the Peavey has a bit of a Jetsons / steampunk vibe.
