    New SpeedKing

    Not really, had a Speed King back in early 70’s on my Rogers Holiday set, eventually went to a Rogers Swivomatic which ran circles around the Speed King! Think current pedals will do the same.

    LUDWIG Paiste cymbals

    If the date is correct then they were called Ludwig Standard. The NS12 were made from 1958- 60 in Switzerland. The later version 1960 - 1964 made of Ns12 Were from Germany( your description not the ones) So if made in Swiss as you say, they were made from 1958 - 1960, or are the later version...

    New starclassic kit issue.. [Solved]

    I personally don't like the response from TAMA! Obviousy they admitted to cosmetic issue or design, and are not willing to make it right! Secondly if they are having shipping issues then their packaging is in question! I would return it for a full refund and go to another brand. My feeling TAMA...

    Yamaha part number question

    The metal is there, you can just go a little oversize! Btw removing the washer just may give you bite on the threads further down.

    New Kit: What to Look For When Delivered

    Look at the bass drum shell seam (where the plies are joined), Have seen drums that had things stacked on them in shipment which caused the seam to split. Less unlikely if shipped with heads and hoops installed!

    6 ply maple snare vs 4 ply maple with re-rings?

    Basically, it all depends on the thickness of the plies. It‘s not inconceivable a 4 ply drum can have the same shell thickness as a 6 ply shell. So to favor one over the other without knowing the shell thickness means nothing!

    New Drum Kit Suggestion

    Think it depends on how much the beginner will dedicate him or herself to the instrument! If just a something to do Pearl Exports which run about $200 less than the Yamaha Stage customs.

    Tom positioning

    Not sure what you mean, left hand drummers set up with the floor tom on the left and snare on the right. You have the setup with left handed toms, on a right handed set up? Doing a complete to fill left to right you have a low note, going to a higher note then to a low note!
