Default Re: What drums intrigue you that you have NEVER owned

I've always wanted to take a Peavey Radial (I think that's what they're called) for a spin. They are built differently and look a little strange, but the sound is supposed to be terrific. I know that Don Brewer switched from Ludwig to Peavey (probably playing DW by now).

They do sound very nice. But they would be too stressful to gig with (for me, anyway). Every square inch - aside from where the hoops/heads cover - is lacquer/paint just waiting to get chipped. And the Radial Bridges stick out farther than the hoops, so they're just out there exposed, waiting to take a hit.

I'm about to start experimenting with something very intriguing... Free-Floating Oriollo Phantom Aluminum kit. Stay tuned...

I can't think of many. Maybe a Craviotto or a vintage Gretsch round badge?

I was jonesing for a Sonor Vintage Series for a couple of years, but when I played one I was completely underwhelmed by the toms. Same goes for the Gretsch Broadkaster series.

Wacco rope tensioned drums. Finnish company, beautiful workmanship and good sound (only heard them once, played at a festival). Would like to try out the concept.

Nothing too exotic for me.

I would love a Yamaha top of the range kit in Bonham sizes.

A local drummer has a monster radial kit that they use for jam nights very occasionally. Sadly they have hydraulic heads and are tuned JAW, so I feel like that's not exactly taking advantage of the drum design. lol. I've played them a few times, and yet I have no idea what they really sound like.

I always thought they were a very cool design when they first came out, and were always on my 'win the lottery' list.

I've played them, & they're superb. Probably not for every application, but I'm a fan of instruments that do specific things really well / have defined character, so all is good.

There seem to be a decent number of people around who think Mapex are garbage, and I just do not get it.

Cool. I’m thinking about getting a mixed-metal Oriollo kit, an 8x8 brass cast tom, 10, 13, and 16 copper toms, and an aluminum kick.

Who are you going to have make the 8x8 cast brass? Looks like Oriollo doesn't make 8" toms, or cast brass toms (at least, not listed on the website).

Not weird at all. The SC Bop kits are great. If it's in your budget, I highly recommend them. I've had two of them, and toy with the idea of getting one again.

They do cast brass snares, last I checked. If they can’t do an 8 or 9, I’d just settle for the other drums.

Oh yeah, I saw the cast brass snares (I want one SO bad). I don't think they make them in any size but 14" though, according to the website.

If my experiment goes well with the 12" aluminum tom shell I ordered, I intend to eventually get one of every diameter, and make a complete free-floating Oriollo shell bank. I've already got like 90% of the hardware. Just need to get all the shells and a few hoops.

. When you say free-floating, do you mean Sleishman-style hardware, or just suspension mounts, or what?

I mean Page cable-tension hardware. Nothing touching the shell but the heads.

I remember seeing a kit in the back of Modern Drummer, probably 15 years or more ago, with a pulley system like that. It's craziness I tell you!

Yeah, turning any one tension rod tensions both heads evenly all the way around. I know tuning both heads the same isn't for everybody, but I think this could wind up being the ultimate gigging kit... Aluminum shells and lugs will make them super light, and tuning on the fly - even with the guitarists fiddling around at an 11 - is insanely easy. Of course, I'll still have the Orions to handle any other types of tunings I may need in the future.

Unfortunately, Page is gone now. But Hudson Drums picked up where Page left off. Though the Hudson lugs seem to actually rest against the shell. Not sure what (if any) real difference that would make to the sound. Very excited to see how this turns out.

Just not sure they will stay in tune, cables stretch. Different idea!

I tried to get Hudson to sell me some of those lugs, but he wouldn’t do it. I eventually found someone who was experimenting with a similar system, but I wasn’t very satisfied with it.

These steel cables don't stretch. At least not to any noticeable degree. I used the full maple Page kit for a while. I just wasn't a fan of the sizes. The biggest tom was a 14", which just wasn't big enough for me.

Champagne Drum Lugs sells lugs that will work. There's a guy that used them to make a similar kit, and he said they worked awesome.

A high-end Gretsch USA kit in bop sizes. 14x18 bass drum, 8x12 and 14x14 toms. I'm intrigued to see how good they can sound, but I've never tried it. I think 18" bass drums are too little for my applications. But since all the greats have played one at one time, I figure "what do I know?" All the little drums I've owned were/are all the cheap stuff meant as seconds.

Let me know how it goes. I might convert my kits.

If you're interested, there's a guy in the thread below that built his own using Keller shells, and the Champagne lugs I mentioned above. Sound sample in post #38.

Outlaw Drums from Georgia. All their drums are stave built using local wood. The grain properties and color combos are very different from what you traditionally see and the sound is great.
