Was joking, i would never do something like that The chip is small enough i could fill with superglue and polish out if it mattered.. Just the 16 and kick the polish up now... then all the stands/throne... ugh..Put it in a box on a shelf. Really.
Don’t split them up!
Floor toms look great. I realize you can't play as a set yet, but have you had a chance to at least hit em individually?
I have hit the 10-12-16 just with a really quick tune on them..
My DW's were kind of boomy and deep.. The only way i can really describe these is focused, totally different sound. I'm kinda dying to hear them together.. but no rush. People don't like deep toms it seems.. but the 10x10 is like a little canon, i really like it..
Now i need to off my dw's i don't wanna be one of those guys with 10 kits laying around.
My Yamaha kit is also older and also has the high-tension lugs, and the toms I use are 10x10, 12x10, and 16x14. I understand the cannon thing.
Tbh, the 16x14 doesn't have the longer lugs, but it's such a very nice drum that I don't mind.
Maybe just part of the adaptive curve, maybe heightened expectations as yet unmet- I advise tuning, maybe different heads, and time to learn from each other.So... got the kick and 2 toms setup... so far i hate it I am so used to my old drums which were maple and super warm.. I will play with tuning more and try it through the mics when i get time.
P.S. being new to micing a kit i got to learn how much fun it is re-arranging a kit with cable snaked through it
Yup, i have played the same kit since i started, just used to it.. I will sauy the Avedis or whatever 22" ride was a let down.. zero magicMaybe just part of the adaptive curve, maybe heightened expectations as yet unmet- I advise tuning, maybe different heads, and time to learn from each other.
No waste of money... i already own em I will play with it as i can... need this damn arm to heal...That made my day too.
Just one more step closer to them being mine.
All joking aside, it sounds like you like the sound of your old maple kit, so it would be pointless, futile and a huge waste of money to try to get these to sound like your old kit. Think about it.
My old set is DW Design series, which isn't a expensive kit but they sound great and super warm.. the yammys so far have no warmth at all.. just lacking any soul which might sound weird.. but i am gonna work on it between eating pain killers..How would you describe the sound of the Yamahas? What’s your other set?
