    Well, turns out the kick is an 18” not 20” so not going to bother, thanks for all the input

    Decisions?

    I appreciate all the replies, some good ones too. For now I’ll probably just sit tight, I also have a Taye Studio Maple kit 20 10 12 14 that I use for a lot of gigs and I have to tell you those thin maple shells really sound great to me anyway.

    Decisions?

    I have the Crosstown hardware now, great stuff. The TC kits are very nice but I thought the 20" bass lacked a bit of attack, that's why I was considering the 22" and still very lightweight.

    Decisions?

    Haven’t posted in a while but looking for advice. Over the years I have gone through many kits, DW, Yamaha mostly, Gretsch, Taye. Anyway as I climb towards 70 ouch, I am considering letting go of my mint Yamaha Oak Custom kit and replacing it with a Yamaha Tour Custom. I had two TC kits in the...

    Taye Studio Maple or Yamaha Tour Custom Maple

    Hi Wildbill, you are correct, I sold a TC kit a while back, long story, picked up another one. They are nice and they do the job. Obviously I go through my share of kits.

    Taye Studio Maple or Yamaha Tour Custom Maple

    To my ears the Taye had a bit more attack especially the kick

    Taye Studio Maple or Yamaha Tour Custom Maple

    So, I had a Taye studio maple kit I bought used, I played it about six months and it was a sweet sounding kit. I traded it in and picked up a Yamaha TC kit. Although I have been a long time Yamaha player and still play oak customs I find myself missing the Taye kit? My thinking was selling the...

    Getting to be a bit much

    Corona virus wiped out 3 months worth of gigs so far...and counting, so now I have a bit of an itch to play live again :-) Already painted three rooms, planted shrubs. Maybe I won't retire after all :-)

    How did you guys do it in the 70's??

    Well, being an antique who made a living playing in show bands back in then 70's I feel your pain. I either rolled up the pant leg or a cloths pin. But mostly rolled it up.

    What drumming advice would you give to a younger you?

    Learn to walk before starting to run, meaning I was too interested in learning cool chops, speed, trying to be flashy etc. I wish I had worked more with a metronome, listen better and play for the song... However, I do that much better now and I'm 66 so I am grateful to still be able to play...
