with the batter pretty tight, do you get enough "slap" to cut through and get a little bit of punchiness?

how do you tune it up real high with the felt causing a "boxy" sound? i have a 14x24 rogers and it seems to only like medium to medium-low tuning. (approximately 1/2 to 3/4 turn on the batter lugs, 1 full turn on the reso.) it always loses it's fullness and gets real dry and dead if i go higher. is it the tension of the felt or what? approximately how many full turns of the tension rods do you go on both heads?

thanks.

its not boxy, its boomy. My heads are pretty tight, around 83 on the drum dial

Nice, from Harris Hire? Mick Fleetwood formerly owned that kit. Bonzo sold it for a fiver to a buddy.

QUESTION #2
What personally do you guys think sounds better? New Beat or Quick Beat? I have a Quick Beat.

QUESTION #3
What is the difference between all the different wood types that drumsets are made out of? I have Maple.

QUESTION #4
Can anyone really do what John Bonham does on "Moby dick" with one pedal? and Who can? Cause I have been working on it and I can only partially do the double pedal sound with one pedal thing. I do a weird heel-toe action...

That is all for now, But if any of you could answer any of my questions I would greatly appreciate it.


My dads friend mitch had a bohnam set and he could play moby dick in highschool single pedal so that ansewrs one of your questions

Thats a really nice set. With the wood finished bass hoops and the silver finish, it looks very similar to the Gretsch Catalina Club Rock Kit

My Rogers Big R, Silver Metallic are from 1977. Purchased new in Nov. 1977, bought by me from the original owner in Nov. 1979. I still have them. Still play them out. The other set in the pic is a Dayton virgin 20" bass, that I rescued from a horribly botched recover, and recovered in untouched Rogers 1977 Silver Metallic. That set is 20-12-16. I am using DW cymbal stands and Tama Iron Cobra Pedals.

Very nice Rogers kit. I love the finish, it brings back memories. I remember that finish was pretty popular in the late seventies and early eighties. I always liked Rogers drums, very well made and a great sound.

Thanx for the kind words. But soon the toms will match the kick (or at least close).

This thread is a cornucopia of coolness!

Purple sparkle *rocks*! That Luddie looks awesome!

And I really dig that Pork Pie acrylic kit, great color and setup!

And I have to give a nod to the cool Rogers stuff.

Thanks for the kudos Synthetik,

Ploughman, that Rogers set is SWEET!

I tried to post a picture of my set but it says my photos all take up too much space to post. I'm rather computer illiterate so I don't know how to get around it. Anyway, picture the kit he used from '69-'70, the natural maple one shown in the Royal Albert Hall portion of the DVD. Now picture the stain is a dark, rich mahogany color. Now picture the guy behind it is about 1/1,000 as good, 1/10 as drunk, and has no moustache. That's what my kit looks like.

I wish. They are the reissues, about 3 years old, they don't have reinforcement rings or anything. I believe they are 6-ply, although I'm not positive about that. What I meant is that they look exactly like the kit Bonham played from '69-'70 except for the color. It's a stain instead of a wrap, like the kit he has, it's just a much darker color. It also has the 14"x12" top tom and 8 lugs, some of the reissue kits I've seen have the 14"x10" top tom, like when he moved on to the green sparkle and vistalites. From what I have seen they all have 8 lugs now though, whereas his green sparkle and vistalites kits the top toms each had 6.

The DW fellows refer to this as a "Junior Bonham" kit. I wonder if they have to pay a fee for that. 24 12 14 16 14x7 snarage.

Ayotte Custom

18x22, 9x12, 14x14, 16x16
The 14x14 is not an Ayotte, but it matches. It was also almost a thousand bucks cheaper.

Usually it a Pork Pie. In the last six months, I have done about 30 shows with my Roland TD12 and 20 with acoustic. This trend needs to end!!!!! We do alot of Irish pubs and the Roland is great for that (damn it)

I'm thinking of buying a vintage set, of Bigger than Bonham sizes! I really like the look of them. they are 26x16, 15x13, 18x16, 20x18. They are from 1986 in a nice white finish. What do you think?
I really want some bonham sized ludwig drums.
Thanks for making this cool thread btw.

Those would be some thunderous drums. I drive a 26x14, 15x12, 16x16, 18x16 Ludwig 6 ply kit. Big drums go boom. Welcome to Drummerworld.

Where did you guys buy a new batter heads for a 26" bass drum? I'm having a hard time finding some. I really want a coated one or something premuffled (like those evan ones with the black foam rings around the edge). Thanks.

I ordered my heads from my local music store, I got them in about three days. Ludwig makes the Power Collar heads in 26" which is their answer to the Power Stroke heads. Remo makes the Powerstroke in 26" but I don't know if Evans makes the E-Mad head in that size. But I would check with your local music store.

If I remember correctly Aquarian makes 26" super kicks which you can get online easily enough, they have a muffling ring on the underside.

Get a Remo Emperor coated for batter head, that's what John used.

I would go with the Coated Remo Emperor or the Evans coated g-2, same drum head basically. I would also stay away from pre muffled drum heads for your bass drum, Bonham just used felt strips to muffle his. Personally I think thats what sounds best for oversized bass drums. On the resonant side he would just use a smooth white Ludwig logo head, sometimes with a felt strip sometimes without.
