Jeff Ocheltree TreeBronze 8x14 Cast Bell Brass Snare Drum

Super-rare.

THIS cast bronze monster (tastefully) kicks the snot out of a Tama Bell Brass snare. Much harder to find. Thicker shell (3/16"). Hand crafted by an artisan master. Lower mass lugs....

Re: kick pedal wont stay straight

If you have the bass drum spurs too high, it might cause some shifting of the pedal. Just a thought.

Re: New from Ludwig!

I'm going to lunch with the Ludwig reps in a couple of weeks at NAMM 2011!
I will be returning with a complete photo journal, a la Mike Dolbear!

Re: The expensive drum stigma....

I wouldn't buy that Rudd snare. It's a Chinese piece of crap.
Craviotto makes a nice brass shell. I think it's like 3,000 dollars more, though.

Re: Aydee's got a new snare

Nice purchase. 395 is a good price for that beauty.
I also like how you refer to yourself in the third person in your posts.

Re: Tom Size in a 4 piece with a 24 inch kick?

13".

Too much separation with a 12x9.
IMO.

Re: Eames Drums

Eames kits are fantastic. Joe really crafts his drums with pride and care.
The mega-thick Master Tone shells project like you wouldn't believe. My friend is the drummer for the Queers, and his...

Re: dw Classics Series

Reference and Masterworks are made in Taiwan, I think.
I have not heard the Jazz Series DW's yet, but I know a few people who I consider "anti-DW" that love the Jazz Series sound compared to the...

Re: Ludwig Classic Maple?

Noble Cooley is a much smaller operation than Ludwig. Nearly all of their kits are custom orders. Same deal with SJC, GMS. All excellent (expensive) drums. They don't need to adjust their...

Stacking Drums During Storage?

Do you think it's bad to stack your drums on top of one another during storage?
I'm thinking maybe it's bad for the bearing edge? I put a piece of plywood over the bass drum rim, but i'm thinking...

Re: Gretsch Renown...unfair to call it "mid-level"?

Semantics. I guess I think of a "professional" level kit as "top of the line".

Examples:
DW Collector's
Sonor SQ2
Yamaha PHX
Gretsch USA Custom

These kits are handmade from start to...

Re: Gretsch Renown...unfair to call it "mid-level"?

I think it's fair to call Renowns a Gretsch mid-level kit. That's what they are. The USA customs are the top, then Renown, then Catalina at the bottom.

USA Custom

Re: Tama Now Made in China

Maybe they'll start selling Starclassics at Wal-Mart.
Roll-back prices, baby!

Re: Saw Sean Reinert Last Night!

While I'm not real familiar with them, they played some stuff from the 1st album and a bunch of new stuff.

Re: Saw Sean Reinert Last Night!

He was awesome, too. Very solid and spot on. The crowd really responded to btbam. He was playing what appeared to be a Superstar Hyperdrive kit.

Saw Sean Reinert Last Night!

I finally got to see Cynic last night in Boston with Devin Townsend (AWESOME) and BTBAM.

Re: Awesome Photos of Sonor Factory!

I can't take credit for these...These pics are from a guy named Scott who runs the SonorMuseum.com forum. He recently got back from a tour from Westfalia.

Re: Cant decide between Ddrum and Sonor

I'm not too familiar with DDrum, or Ash kits in general.
Sonor Force 3007 is a fantastic kit for the money.

Re: Truth drums or SJC?

I love it when someone asks, "Which brand should I choose, A or B?" and half the responses are "Brand C".

To the original question - SJC offers WAY more finish choices than Truth, and their kits...
