This snare video is pretty true (minus the slight added reverb) to the snare I heard at the shop a couple years ago. The kit tones were real clean/pure sounding. Not harsh, or thin at all. Not that I had any idea what bamboo would sound like in the first place, but it was a pleasing sounding kit.Larry, just located this 2014 MDS video clip for audio reference. This is the same make, model and size as my bamboo snare, but it is not my snare.
That tom looks great!Found original delmar wrap,,,and had the 16” floor Tom wrapper,,,matches my pdp cx blue onyx perfect,,,cheers
Get a hold of Gary from precision drums,,,he can get it,,,,That tom looks great!
Couple of questions:
* Where in the world did you manage to find a single Pacific CX 16" floor tom? They are nearly impossible to locate. (What color was it originally?)
* Where did you locate the matching Blue Onyx wrap?
Good information, Bluekit. I don't need one, as I bought all the drums available when I purchased my CX kit in 2000. Glad I did, too, 'cause finding the 16" and 8" toms now is extremely difficult. Heck, somebody might make a few coins if they could find a way to assemble new 16" CX-style floor toms. There's certainly a market for them.Get a hold of Gary from precision drums,,,he can get it,,,,
I found a lx series drum same shell as cx,,and hadit wrapped,,,,
I bought a whole sheet,,,so there some left to do the 8”
The delmar code is vf-2101- pdp blue onyx
Google delmar products catalog
It under non-standard celluloid
I got tired of constantly looking for the tom,,,,or seeing won’t sell 16” tom drum separate,,,,
My plan was to use a 16”Tom first made in Mexico,,,cx,lx,mx series,platinum series,,second plan was ax7 series,,,third concept,,,series,,and change the lugs,,,,fourth Keller maple shell ,,,and buy cx lugs,on line,,,,as u can see there is options,,,,
I would get the wrap first,,,then go from there
I found a 8”x 7”( the other add on),, with the suspension mount bracket,,,,that one is a maple x-7 series,,ill have it wrapped later,,,,that should complete the whole set,,,,
I absolutely love the Ludwigs with the mach lugs! My next kit is going to have those!!!I just got the Gibraltar Ultra Adjust flat base stand for my tom.
This one has the plastic-y type grips, but they have a raised piece in the center, and it doesn't choke the tone. I'd prefer rubber, but for the positioning I'll just loosen it a touch.
This stand has put the tom in EXACTLY the spot I want, and EXACTLY the angle I want, without compromising anything else.
Haven't bought anything else lately, because, I'm after a Dunnett Classic 2N 6.5 Stainless Steel snare.
That's keeping all other GAS at bay. Have a few bumps in the road yet, but the "drum fund" is getting there
