The other photo of this drum sucks. So here's a better one.



I put a new wire on it.

I am very excited about the new cymbals. I can recomment the Mehmet cymbals strongly.
I just received an email detailing my next delivery and I am thrilled. Soon to be posted. 22" Vezir flat ride. 22" Origin Dark ride. 18" Origin Dark crash. 22" Empire ride. 14" Empire hi hats. 16" Empire crash. 6" Turk bell. 6" Traditional splash.

They will most likely arrive at 7am! All the instruments seem to arrive at 7am.

Masterwork cymbals are also very nice. A more modern sound than the Mehmets I have received thus far. I am booked tomorrow from 10 am through 8 pm and will take the Masterworks with me to see how they perform.

First, 13x5 Artist beech.





27 plies of beech wood = a massive sound! My # 1 funk snare drum.

oh my God!!!.. another WOW!!!! ...an incredible collection.. congrats...

Thanks mate. I don't know if congrats is due really. I have worked hard to earn the money to buy most of this gear. Aside from some instruments from Brasil and some wonderful cymbals I have been given, I earned everything.

But thanks for appreciating the instruments. Remember though, to own an instrument is easy. To play it well takes effort and dedication.

Just like to say this is the one thread I constantly revisit. Fantastic collection Wy.

Is the avatar a picture of the Sonor Amboina? I'm seriously considering picking up one of those, what's your opinion on it?

These look really nice Wy. I like the multi lathing on this style of cymbal. Not only for the looks, but also for the way the position on the bow changes the character. How are you finding them, now you've had a chance to work them in a bit?

The Sonor Amboina is a wonderful drum. The shell is incredibly well made with amazing bearing edges, perfectly round shell and great hardware.

The sound is deep yet cutting with what I'd describe as a rounded tone. Recently I compared it to a Yamaha Steve Jordan snare. There is a 1/2" difference in depth. The Sonor won hands down. In every possible way. I highly recommend the Amboina.

Hi KIS. The Sultans are kind of trashy. Very nice. The Mehmets are without a doubt the most beautiful cymbals I have ever played.

You have an amazing collection Wy Yung!

Wasn't there a poster here awhile ago that had a similar thread with like 40 snares, mostly DW's. Had em in curio cabinets and everything! What ever happened to that thread?

Thanks fellas. There is lots more. Many of my snares have not been photographed as yet. I have gear spread across 3 storage spaces. 2 are paid by direct debit and I just don't get there very often due to my not doing so many sessions over the last few years. One day I'll break them all out and take some shots. I am gonna do more gigs this year. I am currently putting an 8 piece funk band together with plans to tour Asia. Have already spoken with an agent to tour Vietnam, Malaysia, Hong Kong, China, Phillipines etc.

I got balled out by a big time producer and then a top guitarist for wasting my talent. I decided to pay attention. :)

Hey, if you get any videos or anything up I'd be really interested in seeing them. I'm primarily a funk player and I love seeing the stuff other guys are shedding.

I'll let you know. I'm not really good at self promotion. For example, I used to have videos of all my TV performances. I distinctly remember handing the tapes over to the garbage man in a green rubbish bag. I only realised the following day what I had done. None of that stuff is on Youtube. I check regularly.

What's worse is that over the past couple of year I wanted to help some fine younger drummers. So I would pass sessions along to them. Now they get all my calls! I'm freaking hopeless. :)

Is your health getting any better? Can you still play at the top of your game? I hope so!
Maybe you can record something with your cymbals and snares with a little device like
the Zoom Q3 or so?

Hi mate.
My health is not so good. I've lost a lot of technique in my ankles. My shoulders are affected badly so I am not at my best. I can still play though. Hopefully the new b and won't fall apart before it begins and we can get some vid's up. I'm not in a hurry to record anything though. It is not a priority really mate. I'm too busy writing out lessons and transcribing. I hardly ever play my drums. The drums I play are in the teaching room, low level Sonors with 2 very nice Sonor snares of mine. I couls stand the cheap snares no longer! :)

Thanks for asking.

My kind of stick bag! I hate stick bags with 14 pairs of the same kind of stick.

Wy, why is your Pandiero frothing? What is that inside??

I am not a classical percussioniat. I play samba, African, Afro Cuban and various bits and pieces of ethnic percussion. I do play classical snare drum pieces but only for practice and in teaching.

I'm strictly from the street. Or rather the bush. Not many timpanis in Broken Hill and Cobar. :)

I took my new cymbals out today on a funk jam. The Masterwork hats are like A Custom hats from Krypton. WOW! Incredible hi hats. All the rest were perfect as well. But hearing the 1/4 note emphasised on those Mastework hats was a highlight. They cut through so beautifully.

Wy, are you familiar with Cindy Blackman's signature cymbals (Agop OM)? I'm
thinking about the 22" ride, seems to be one beautiful instrument!

Hi mate.
No, I have no experience with that cymbal.

Check this out; the 10 year old wunderkind I teach told me Master studies 1 and 2 are "Too basic" the other day. This after taking him through 30 variations of playing 17/16.

The greatest inspiration in my life is teaching this amazing child. I just got the family free tickets to see Billy Cobham and he is so excited.

Wow! And he isn't autistic or anything like that...??
Is it the boy you went through Gavin Harrison's book with?

Have you worked with Gary Chaffee's Rhythmic Patterns with him? Maybe
that will blow his mind...! Or maybe even The Unreel Drumbook?



Think I'll give the Agop OM a go...!! What I'm hearing on mycymbal sounds
amazing to me!

Now that I'd love to hear. Any brass in there? Please tell me there's at least a 3 piece brass section, I yearn for brass, easily the best reason for owning lots of snares.

A mid life health induced technique slide usually equates to the slightest behind the beat vibe, oh so fantastic for brass section empathy & expression, or at least, that's my excuse, & I'm sticking to it!

Hi guys.

No autism, thankfully. Just incredible talent and inteligence supported by much practice. Hard work and dedication does pay off.

Agop cymbals are very good. That much I know. They are basically Mehmets, but perhaps a bit more old school. The Mehmet representative I know speaks highly of them.

KIS yes there will be 4 horns, trumpet, bone, alto and tenor sax.

Now THAT gives me the horn! Pretty much the whole spectrum. Extreme jealousy.

I wouldn't get too excited mate. It is not together yet. I played with a bass player yesterday who apparently had to look up funk on Wickipedia.

I live in a cultural backwater called Australia. Australians can run and jump well. Art is an entirely different story.

Maybe kangaroos, yes, koalas no. Ayers rock maybe. :)
Plus I have a drum student who is from Australia. That would be my main
connection. He immigrated here one year or so ago, he's 17 years old.
I quite like the Australian accent!

Hi mate.
No I have no knowledge of the OM ride. I am not online except via phone so have not heard your cymbal. I am sure it is lovely.

The cymbals I received today are spectacular. I particularly like the Empire ride for my immediate needs. The Origin dark ride is a perfect jazz cymbal. I hope to introduce some jazz funk into my new band at some point. All the crashes are wonderful. The origin so dark and the Empire brighter than I had imagined. The flat Vezir is crystal clear with a thick ping sound but sharp attack.

I have a busy weekend coming so look forward to playing them. I am considering a 2 hi hat set up for the funk stuff and might mix and match cymbals. I have 6 new hi hats from Turkey plus my old Zildjians and Sabians. Will see what sounds good.
