    Snaredrum dilemma!

    For the money, I would buy a snare drum kit from as they have multiple shells to pick from. They have the black brass shell 6.5x14 kit. Check that out first. Comes with everything you need.

    China/Trash Cymbals - what for ?

    I like the 14" K mini china a lot. I also have Wuhan 14". I have a Stagg 20" that I don't use that's for sale. When I use one I like the sound to be in & out. Fast. I got the 20" because I wanted experiment with riding on one like Billy Cobham/Mel Lewis do. It's just not the right china for that...

    Mapex M series?

    No one will pay top dollar for a refinished kit unless it's a Gretsch & it's done properly. I have more in them than I can get back for the shells.

    Mapex M series?

    This is my ProM. It was purple trans but the kit was not well taken care of. I traded a 12 gauge for it. I sanded the original finish & stained them natural. It was a cool kit for gigging. I have this kit and another kit I bought so it's 22/20 kicks 14/16 fl toms 8/10/12/13 toms. It's all torn...

    Best Snare Wires for LM400?

    There are no set rules. Do you tune high or low? Do you like your snare ringy or dry? What do you play for music? Do you hit hard or soft? Those questions need to be answered. I like 30 to 42 strand snares because I like the sensitivity. I use a set of 30 strand on my Supra because it's a...

    Gretsch New Classic kit

    That's around what I was thinking with new G1 or G2 on top. These are killer drums. Mike Patton told me the shells for mine are made in USA. Assembled in Taiwan. My music teacher/JU Percussion Dr Tony Steve came over & said that was the best tuned kit he ever played. They came with G1 coated &...

    Gretsch New Classic kit

    I have a 2010 kit with 22/20/16/14/12/10/8. I bought new in 2010 in Vintage Nitron Glass wrap. What's the kit worth? It sounds like a USA kit. Bass drums are virgin & toms and floor toms have clamps/legs. Only gigged once. Also have SKB cases available in same sizes. You don't ever see them with...

    Scaling down your kit. Experiences and thoughts?

    My gig kit is a 2up 1down with snare & single kick/pedal. Ride/crashes(3)/hats on two stands & clamped hi hat stand. My 14" crash is on the hat. A lot of times I just roll with 2 crashes. Simple is good. Cover bands setup & loading in is easier without the multiple toms. I made an inventory on a...

    I tried one of these kits today. The toms sounded ok with the factory heads but the 18" kick sound much bigger. I kept kicking it marveling at the sound. My 18" kicks I had in the past never sounded so good. With good heads this kit would be a great gig kit. For $700.00 this kit is better than...

    Gretsch Renown Maple vs RN1

    I saw this. Glad you like the 20x14. I have a ssb kit w/20x14. It's a lil beast. Enjoy!

    Size matters. Which is more important: girth or length?

    Do you have a sound sampler of that? I've never played one. I have a 20x14 Gretsch square badge kick but it sounds fat & huge compared to my 20x16 New Classic kick. My 22x18 kicks sound big & punchy. My fav is my RB 22x14. Bonzo lite.

    Dumb High-Hat Question

    Sometimes the best cymbals are the ones you try in a different way. Mixing them up in fun. Remember, sometimes bottom cymbals sound good as a top cymbal.

    Straight or shuffle?

    Clapton is ez listening blues rock now & has been for decades. He has occasional relapses of his old firery self but he's mostly tame & mellow.
