    Why Is Yamaha Dropping DTX 900, 700 & 500 Series?

    I was thinking about buying a Yamaha DTX 920k but I'm having trouble finding one. Then I heard that Yamaha dropped the DTX 900, 700 & 500 series electric drums. Does anybody know why Yamaha decided to drop them???

    Electronic drums with low volume cymbols

    I've been satisfied using low volume cymbals without miking them. They are low enough when I play low & loud enough when I play louder without miking them. I just set them up and play.

    What happens if i take the wraps off my drums.

    WOW! They look great without the wraps. The natural wood looks cool. What kind of wood are your drums made of? Peace.

    Top Hi-Hat Cymbal Should Be Slightly Larger Than Bottom !?

    My hi-hat cymbals slowly cut away my wooded sticks until the shaft gets thinner & thinner & finally it's no good. This happens, I believe, because the bottom hi-hat cymbal sometimes sticks out further than the top cymbal and cuts away at the stick little by little as the stick hits it. So why...

    Trade 2019 Gretsch USA Custom for 2018 Yamaha Absolute Hybrid Maple?

    I bought them because I got a super low price ($2500 for 6 pc USA Custom) and because they have been one of my "dream kits" for many years. They were ordered by someone ( I guess?) but were damaged while being shipped (one tension rod bent & front hoop cracked). I changed the tension rod & the...

    Trade 2019 Gretsch USA Custom for 2018 Yamaha Absolute Hybrid Maple?

    My USA Customs are the Natural Lacquer finish & they are absolutely beautiful in my opinion. The Hybrid Maple kit is Piano Black. The Hybrid Maple kit does have sizes I like (20" & 22" bass drums, 14 & 16" Floor Toms, with 10 & 12" Mounted Toms = very versatile sizes). My Gretsch is 22" bass...

    Trade 2019 Gretsch USA Custom for 2018 Yamaha Absolute Hybrid Maple?

    I agree with all of y'all - I think being locked up at home because of coronavirus is starting to get to me. I do like the Hybrid Maple kit but I love my USA Customs & I'm keeping them till I die. Sorry guys & thanks for talking some sense back in me. Y'all are the greatest!

    I'm in an all original band & we are looking to add a few cover tunes. Looking for the songs that really get the audiences excited ( like when bands play "Sweet Caroline" by Neil Diamond ) or the songs that get everyone on the dance floor. What songs have you noticed get the best crowd...

    Difference Between Roland TD-17KVX & TD-27KV ??

    I spend most of my practice time on my electric drum kit so that I don't disturb my neighbors (especially at 3:am) but the hard rubber on the toms & kick is taking a painful toll on my body. I am thinking about upgrading to a new & better kit. I was checking out the new Roland TD-27KV but when I...
