Re: Anyone have this new Gretsch snare yet?

A few Les Ismore possibilities come to mind.

From the posting history, I would have guessed an oftentimes somewhat crabby
middle aged male.
That might still be the case, even with a husband...

Re: Help With Yamaha Drum Part

Ya - that's a 20", and my toms are shallower than yours.

I kind of don't think that the longer tom arms are going to help.
Your kit wouldn't be the best for me to play, but it looks like you do...

Re: Help With Yamaha Drum Part

If you raise the shafts a little - the ones that go into the 3 hole bass drum mount that holds the toms - you should be able to swing the toms together until they touch.
They may be too high then...

Re: Beginner (Fun) songs?

There's this too. What's fun for me, may not be for you.
Pick a song that you like to listen to that's fun. If it's too complicated, simplify it at first.

If you get really stuck and can't do...

Re: Yamaha original Maple Custom kit - Is it worth it??

I recently got some Yamaha Maple Custom Absolutes, but they're in 'Vintage Natural', and the badges are a little saggy.

If you're really a beginner, just slow it way down and wing it.

Re: Yamaha original Maple Custom kit - Is it worth it??

Bwa ha ha ha - it took a couple looks, but I think those are happy toms indeed.

Thinly veiled badges too. LOL

Re: Yamaha original Maple Custom kit - Is it worth it??

If you want to do a lot of tom work, and you're pretty narrowed down to those two kits, go for the natural finish set.

Re: Tom Setup with Tuning

I'd say don't worry about trying to get them a 4th apart.
Just get them to where they sound good together by ear, and then you won't need a bigger tom.
12 and 16 are pretty commonly used together.

Re: Advice needed on correct gear.

Hollywood Jim's probably got the best idea. If you can find a set like that, it can be set up in a variety of ways.

Something like this might also work for strictly practice:...

OK - thanks.

I removed the pic in the post above. Those drums are too good looking to have graffiti arrows on them - LOL

Do the round knobs on the metal tom mount brackets have a function?

Re: Yamaha original Maple Custom kit - Is it worth it??

What were your Canwood drums like? Number of pieces, sizes, and so on.
No - I hadn't heard of them, so I went to the site.
No prices listed, and I don't see them for sale at any of the usual...

Re: AK Snare Drums?

The engraved ones are a bit 'flowery', but I'd really like to try that one ^^^^.

Looks good, and those snares look like they'd really do the job.

Re: New Guru "Tour" series kits - details here first :)

Very nice looking drums. I think the more natural finishes are just fine.

The hardware on your other lines is really unique, and makes the unmistakable statement that 'these are Guru drums',...

Re: Walnut, Birch, Heads, Tuning, Sound

EDIT: Never mind. I went and heard them in person, and they sound like standard fare.
My conclusion for those mp3's is heads, tuning or processing.

Not sure what section of the forum to put this in, but I have some questions about some short audio clips I ran across recently.

2 - would it be possible to...

Re: First time in EIGHT years.. I have drums set up at my place.

Being able to play your acoustic drums is one of the many things that make the hassle of owning a house worth it.

Re: Just in case you forgot

I'd really like to see that pattern on a black background.

Same blue/green, but all the white parts black. I think it'd look great.
