    Just a few thoughts...

    I was just reading a thread that Joey Kramer moved to Pearl. Feel free to join in... Why do we get so excited when a drummer changes a product company? Is it the same way with the guitarists, keyboard players, trumpet players? Are we so lost in the sea of marketing that we live through the...

    Tama tension rod threads

    Hello! Sorry if similar thread exists, haven't found it. I own Tama drums. It seemed to me is the tension rods were M6. So to prevent detuning I got some M6 nuts and when I put them on rods, they appeared to be bigger and didn't hold. Does anyone know what thread does Tama use on their rods...

    Rubber between lugs and shell

    Hello! Does anyone know what kind of rubber it actually is? Or is it some kind of PVC sheet? It looks to me it's more 'plasticy' than 'rubbery'. I'm interested because I would like to get some sheets of that material to put it on drumset. For help, it's the part 2-1 on pic below...

    (Relatively) New Tama hardware line

As far as I know it doesn't belong to any of the existing lines and it isn't part of a "new name" line, it's just... New :D Check out the picture below.

    BD: Clear or coated with or without front logo?

    Hey guys! Just interested in opinions about resonant BD heads. Which do you prefer? Do you have drum manufacturer logo or just plain head or something else? Myself, I went from EMAD resonant to G1 clears. I prefer everything following the same pattern so I removed original Evans logo which was...

    Evans G2 as a bass reso head

    Hello all! Has anyone tried this? I was thinking to put these as resos as they are almost twice as cheaper than EMAD resos. I do muffle my bass drums with sponge so does it really matter if it's 2-ply? Will I lose the incredible low end I produce with EMAD resos? :) Thanks!

    Snare and bearing edges

    Hi! While I made blueprints for my own snare with sharp edges, Gavin Harrison comes in with his signature snare and brings some disturbance in my determination. His snare has rounded edge on batter side and sharp on bottom. Now I had a plan of making a metal snare with sharp edges like Tama Bell...

    Thoughts on powdercoating a bronze shell

    Hello! I recently powdercoated every part of my newly acquired snare, except the shell, in black because it was in poor shape. Chrome pitting, oxidation... You know the story. Anyway, it looks killer meow. (I mean 'now' :) ) Now, since the shell is also in poor shape do you think if I...

    Paiste cymbal CLEANER & PROTECTOR

    Hello all! I would like to ask you guys who own these two products to share your experiences (and pictures before and after). Is it worth the money? I'm more interested in Protector since I can wash my cymbals pretty well without the cleaner. The problem comes in when you get an older cymbal...

    Swingstar bass drum almost the same as Rockstar?

    Hi all! I noticed in 2003 catalog that the only difference between the two is that Rockstar has 8 plies of Philippine mahagony (7 + 1 ply of basswood), and Swingstar has 6 plies of Philippine mahagony. Can you tell me more about the difference in sound between the two? Throw me as much info as...

    Marco Foddis

    So the only album I have listened where Marco plays, and will continue because I'm not interested in the rest, is Spheres by Pestilence. Maybe some will say he doesn't do anything ultrafast or stuff like that, but I really think this guy did wonders on this album. Maybe some things could have...
