You can't go wrong w/ maple.My local shop got in this Noble and Cooley CD Maples Kit in Honey Maple gloss lacquer ( my favourite finish ) in my preferred configuration 20/12/14 and we negotiate a fantastic deal , so home it came with me .
Superb drums , perfect bearing edges and that great maple sound . Been awhile since I had a 100% Maple Kit .
Today’s 75 dollar find.
90’s (I think) Ludwig Black Galaxy Arcolite
Today I pulled the trigger on a pair of Sony MDR7506, I listen to music all the time at the job, I was fed up with my Lo-Fi pair. At home they will help me studying drum solos of songs were the drum recording is very low or when the engineer puts it far away in the background with not too much resolution.. So Instead of cranking my speakers to listen to a section 15 times in a row.
I figured it was time to get good headphones.
I had one similar pair in the past and they were very good headphones with more then enough RMS watts, clean and pure sound, no special filters. I hope these will be as good as my previous pair.
Can't wait to try them.
