Default Drumgear in your School.

Hey,

i am very interested on the drumgear at other schools.
So i would really like to see some photos of the drumset you´ve got in school.
I will post some pictures tomorrow too.

A lot of schools have all in all bad drums but a friend of mine visited Glenalmond for some months and there they got very good drums!
So you see its different. But i want to know how many schools got good and how many schools got bad drums.
If you can´t get a photo it's enough to tell me everything....but photos would be better.

Thank you,

Tobi

I'm very lucky. My school has a Yamaha Beech Custom with that blueberry finish I've seen twice on this forum recently plus I'm almost the only drummer on the school so it's all mine. The cymbals aren't bad either. The ride's a Paiste 2002, the hats are very nice sounding Sabian AA-Regulars and I found a Paiste Alpha Crash and Splash as well.
The kit sounds great and is really comfortable to play.

My school has a Tama Swingstar. All the hardware is Tama. The heads are stock and two years old, complete junk. Every time I get a chance to play it, I'm scared to play the high tom toms because the heads are wrinkled and ruined. It sounds real nice, when not so beat up heads are on it. Man those were the good old days. Aside from the nasty heads they are very well taken care of. All ZXT line cymbals, 18in crash 16in crash 13in hats and a 20in ride. There's also a no name 24in sizzler ride I'm trying to buy...

My high school had a Pearl Export with some mixed Sabian cymbals. At my college we have a few. Jazz band and the Wind Ensemble use a Sonor 3005 with mixed Zildjian K Constantinople and Bosphorus cymbals. Pep band uses a Pearl Session with Zildjian K and A cymbals. The drumline uses all Yamaha and Zildjian stuff. SFZ snares and Field Corps basses and tenors. We use Zildjian Stadium series crashes, and we have a few old Sabian sets we use for marching as well. We've got 6 marimbas, 5 Vibes, 4 Xylophones, 3 bells, 3 sets of chimes, several concert basses, multiple snares, mostly Ludwig and Pearl, 4 full sets of timpani, 2 sets of concert toms (one 8 tom set and one 4 tom set), lots of ethnic percussion, lots of cymbals (crash and suspended, mixed Zildjian and Sabian orchestral models), and numerous small instruments, triangles, tambourines and other related instruments.

Our school has two Pearl Exports... one's from the 80's, and the other is about three years old. The cymbals go from sub-par to "wowza".. we have a pair of 13" ZBT Hats and a 18" ZBT Crash/Ride, but then we also have an Avedis 16" Thin Crash circa 1976, a pair of 14" New Beats from the 70's and a GORGEOUS riveted Zildjian 20" ride that I estimate is from the 50's. And I'm glad I have some self-control, otherwise I'd have taken that baby home with me.

We have a Sonor Force 2003 in school...good kit. Sizes are: 20" bass, 10",12",14" toms, 14x5.5" Snare but I`m using an old Steel snare drum, I think 14x5.5"...with a Powerstroke 3 batter.
Cymbals are 14" Paiste 2000 Hi-Hat, 16" Paiste 502 Crash, 8" no name splash (I have the second, it was actually a small marching cymbal for children :-D, sounds cool), a Paiste 505 20" Medium Ride and currently my old Pulse 16" crash (I use it more as a china).

Very nice to play on...tomorrow again, blues combo. YEAH!

Default Re: Drumgear in your School.

man, most of you have it made at school...

My high school had a horrible yamaha Power V special or something like that, with Zildjian EDGE cymbals... this was for a jazz band. horrible instruments for jazz, and I had them tuned perfectly... they still sounded worse than the boxes they came in.

The college I graduated from has a bunch of kits... a few older maple ludwigs that are awesome, including a vistalite, a mid 90's yamaha club custom (10, 12, 14, 16, 20) with a steve gadd snare, and the newest one is a pearl masters something or other that they got on loan when Steve Houghton came to play with the big band. The school ended up just keeping it after he left. That thing is great.

Most of the cymbals they have are newer Ks, and a few A customs, but they have a few cherries like some signature rides I can't remember anymore and a nice 22" 2oo2 china.

Well, I guess I could throw out the kit that a local college has:
UNCG (University of North Carolina at Greensboro) is a school with a pretty nice music program, both my parents have music degrees from there and the instructor I have is going through for a degree. I do all my lessons on the school kit which is a Gretsch Catalina with Evans G2 heads and an Aquarian Superkick II. No cymbals, the students have to bring their own, but good Gibraltar hardware and Yamaha pedals.

After seeing that pic, You guys need to work on those stick heights and all the drums should be flat across the line.

I know what you mean. We havent really worked that much on that kinda stuff. We just want our stuff to sound good first. We put our line together at the begining of this year so, we are not that competitive or anything yet.

-1 Yamaha quad set (drums are good, holder is not)

-3 vintage Ludwig Marching snares (ok condition)
-1 vintage unidentified marching snare (broken)
-2 vintage marching basses (battered but ok)
-1 8,10,12,14 Rototom set (lacking stand)
-1 conga (appears to have been dropped out of a moving car on a mountain cliff)
-1 Sabian Molto Symphonic Concert cymbal
-1 Sabian AA Orchestral hand crash pair
-1 Zildjian marching crash pair
-3 tympani (beat up, but functional)
-1 new bells set
-1 concert xylophone (worn, but good)
-2 pit bells sets
-2 vintage Ludwig Acrolite snares (love them)
-1 vintage Slingerland snare
-1 very much vintage Ludwig snare
-1 mark tree
-many aux percussion and accesories

as you can see, at one point our band received school funding, but not anymore!

My highschool oh so many years ago (closed in 1995) had a 1965 Ludwig kit with an assortment of killer Sabian and Zildjian cymbals that we used for jazz and concert band. I later found out that they sold the entire kit for $250.00 and bought a premier genista kit. I almost lost my mind when I found out how much they sold it for, it was mint. Man that Ludwig was sweet sounding. It had a 22" kick, 12", 13" toms 14" floor tom and a blck beauty snare as well as an old premier snare that sounding like a pot (It was awesome).

The college I'm staying at has an old Premier Cabria and crap Zildjian Edge and ZBT cymbals. Still has the original kick batter. It's alright though, I have my Bosphorus' down here and I'm scouring ebay for a new snare. It's better than not having access to a kit at all.

My homeschool band has a crappy off brand kit for practice but we play a pdp for performances. The practice kit has zbt cymbals but the performance kit has zbts with a sweet Sabian ride...I don't know the model but its sweet! I'm gonna get my band director a gift card with a sizable amount of money as an end of the year gift and I might try to sell him my old Mapex beginner kit (thats a big upgrade than what he has now) with my old zbt cymbals (he can sell them for a better cymbal or two). This is probably going to be last year with him so I want to give him something nice.
For my old school that I went to it had a nice Pearl (Export maybe..I cant remember) and some nice Zildjian Ks and As and a few Sabians. It also had Pearl marching equipment. I was never in band at the time so I never got to play them.

That's it.

Well my Junior High (Where my mom teaches music) has a Vintage Ludwig Club Date set that some of you may have seen. She has a few nice old Ludwig and one Slingerland snare. Her cymbal selection is rather poor, but she has a nice concert bass drum. She severely lacks hardware.

At my former High School, they had generally nicer stuff, a nice concert bass drum, a few nice snares (Pearl Piccolo and Concert Models), not nearly enough cymbals, and a junky old Pearl Session kit (with the nasty ISS mounts). They have some nice mallet instruments, including a Xylophone, Marimba, Vibes, and Bells.

Now, at my college we have quite a few kits, including a Yamaha in the Recording Studio, an Export in a practice room, a (Nice) Premier and a Mapex V I believe in another closet, and I think another Export which the Gospel Choir uses. We have quite a few nice concert bass drums, a few nice snares, a set of 8 concert toms, and almost enough cymbals you could ever want. Lots of miscellaneous percussion items as well.

It's amazing how much the quality and amount of gear differs based simply on the funding. For example, the junior high gets stiffed and doesn't do any fundraising. The High School does some fundraising to buy some gear, and the college gets all sorts of money...

At every music school in Hertfordshire (where I live) I've been to there have been old pearl or premier kits with B8s. With Batter heads completely smashed, no wingnuts, and missing lugs.

Hey,

all in all it is very amazing what i hear!
A lot of schools there got good drums.

Now there is a picture of our drumset and i have to say, playing this is no fun.

But i´m at a boardingschool so i have to play on it. I already thought about buy a E-Kit. I could take it in my room because accoustic instruments are forbidden and electric ones not.
At home i´ve got my 3005.
I think it would be a great dicision!

Oh yeah, my middle school was w/o a drum set for a while, so i donated my old CB set before i got my Pearl Session. Not a great set, but it gets the job done.

We have an older model Pearl Export. It's missing lugs and the bass drum legs have fallen off n there's no reso head..actually i think the [batter head] is a reso head... the cymbals are zbt's and some are cracked.. I put my old pedal on it to make it somewhat playable. Not too great.

Two years ago my school got a new 5 piece Pearl Export (sounds very good) and we have a lot of crappy old percussion that's never used.
In my class I'm the only person who plays on it, the rest plays piano, guitar, keyboard or recorder.

not much really. Just a pearl export in black. I didn't measure it but i'm pretty sure it's just a normal old 2up 1 down 12, 13, 16, 14 snare, 22 kick type setup. The cymbals are stuff like sabian solar, pearl and performance percussion stuff. So okay beginner cymbals but not amazing.

Now there is a picture of our drumset and i have to say, playing this is no fun.

But i´m at a boardingschool so i have to play on it. I already thought about buy a E-Kit. I could take it in my room because accoustic instruments are forbidden and electric ones not.
At home i´ve got my 3005.
I think it would be a great dicision!

Tobi
it's an alright kit, just be glad you have one to play on!

Wow some of you lot must go to amazing schools!

Back in the day (that 70's show) we had a Ludwig kit. It did look kinda ruff, but it was a good sound. Not so great a sound that I ever longed for a Ludwig, mind you.

It was the basic two up, one down, with two crashes. Really basic stuff. I never did like the finish of that kit. Thats when I had Pearl fiberglass concert toms....LOL, I wanted to be Peter Criss and Neil Peart....I turned out to be me.

I wish I get some pictures up, but unfortunately I'm not in school for summer. (Unfortunately... ha!) Anyways, we have a red tama imperialstar with power toms and a pearl export in standard sizes. Both sets have stock metal snares that sound less than desirable (the pearl still has stock heads which are extremely worn out). We also have a couple other assorted steel snares, and the gem of the bunch is a BEAUTIFUL vintage b/o supra 402. I use it for everything, I swear, and it does great in everything.

In the realm of cymbals we have a handful. A set of Sabian AAX Stage's (14" hats, 16" crash, 21" ride), a SWEET 16" Hand hammered sus. and 15" and 18" AA sus.'s that are a bit heavy for my taste, as well as two sets of Zildjian marching hand cymbals and a set of gorgeous Paiste medium light orchestral hand cymbals. There's also a mess of smaller percussion items, some nice Yamaha tympani and some VERY worn out congas & bongos Last but not least we have the standard Yamaha school models of marching snares, tenors and basses.

My old school had a piece of crap 9 year old Pearl Forum with stock heads the whole time.They have holes in the heads but my band teacher cant get new heads because he is a fat lazy blob. Im the only one who plays them but i dont fell like wasting 100 bucks on some new heads.

Cymbals are nice: 14" A Custom Mastersound Hi-Hats,16" A Medium crash,20" A Medium ride.

Marching: Pearl Carbonp;y snares.

and a lot of other musser marimbas and a ludwig bass and some other crap.
