    Removing Cymbal coating, what results?

    I’m with you. I wanna play metal and not painted metal. I’ve stripped multiple cymbals. I‘m pretty sure the coatings are polyurethane so a paint stripper that included methylene chloride works well and is easy. But you will need to wear gloves.

    Another drum tuning thread

    Considering a single head ... essentially you have a fundamental pitch from the dead center and harmonics close to the edges. The first harmonic is mostly the only one audible, but there are a bunch more but very very weak. When you add a second head the two heads will resonate the same...

    Another drum tuning thread

    With regard to the overall pitch/timbre of the drum that is a mostly correct statement. However if you have different heads top and bottom then all things are not equal.

    Mixer for full drum miking

    It’s a bit more work to get set up or to move around. But with a digital system you’ll get a ton of processing (compressors, gates, eq etc) that you would have to buy additional gear to duplicate

    Aging of tonewoods

    Well generally the bearing edges aren’t finished and there are holes for hardware, etc. If the finish is lacquer moisture can go right through it as it is more like fish scales than a continuous sheet. Think about it like when you leave a wet glass on your table and get a white ring.

    Aging of tonewoods

    Moisture content is dynamic and can go up or down depending on humidity. Shells can both shrink and swell depending on where you put it.

    Vox Telstar Drum Kit Demo

    On8 the kits with a single mounted tom (not like in the photo) there was another tom mount that held the snare drum. So there was no snare stand so nothing to get in the way of two feet.

    Online buying and selling....shipping slowness yet full priced shipping rates?

    You should be thankful they haven’t raised prices considering all the extra costs they incur to prevent you or their workers from getting the virus.

    drums too loud in unfinished raw basement

    You have two issues. Sound reflection inside the room and sound transmission through the ceiling. Be aware they are mostly unrelated. Reflection in the room is relatively cheap and easy. Blocking sound from penetration the ceiling will be relatively expensive.

    Don’t you hate being ignored?

    Not arguing with you. Just pointing out that other people may have different opinions. It might have seemed horrific to the seller.

    Don’t you hate being ignored?

    I’m wondering what forum the two sellers are posting a topic ... “Why do people bother sending lowball offers” ;)

    A Drummer's Most Important Quality

    Once I figured out that I would never become the best drummer in the world I decided if I could have as much fun as the best drummer in the world then we would be equals.
