Re: "Oh no - Not another new bearing edge!"

You'd probably like my Stage Customs then.

The sustain drove me crazy for a while. I couldn't stand it.
The drums seemed to ring on longer than any of my cymbals.
I've got them tamed down to...

Re: Ideas for good 2nd ride to pair with 22" K Light Ride.

So far, the 20" K Custom Dark Ride is about as close to the perfect all around
cymbal that I've found.

Edit: it's...

Re: Carbon fibre

I'd really like to try that one. I have no idea what carbon fibre would sound like

Re: DW, the Scientology of drum companies?

Re: Beginner, Intermediate, and Pro Kit Definitions

First - and IMO, most important (to avoid inferiority complexes) -
the terms 'Beginner, Intermediate, and Pro' have absolutely nothing to do with the
capabilities or skills of the drummer.

Re: Yamaha Recording Customs - Help!!

Excellent deal.
From your first post, I thought they might need some cleaning up work, but they look squeaky clean, and well cared for.

Re: 5x15 Supralite

Whatever it is - I tried it and liked it.

I don't see any of them listed on Ludwig's site either:

Re: Guitar Center's used inventory

They've got some stuff on there right now that makes me wonder what in the heck they were thinking.
Someone might lose their job over it.
Way -WAY overpriced.

I think it's exclusive to Guitar Center - at least for now.

Re: DW, the Scientology of drum companies?

A little off topic, but last week I went to a small pizza/bar/restaurant type place that was featuring a jazz group.

The drummer set up with a 6 piece DW kit with twice as many cymbals. I'll bet...

Re: Dust, pitting, oxide how this can affect?

Surface rust can be removed with chrome polish.

Actual pitting can't be removed. ...

Re: Pearl Roadshow Jazz Kit

AFAIK neither the Export, nor the Vision are available in a bop configuration.
And certainly not with an 18x12 bass drum.

Ya - I know about the larger sets. I like the bop size sets for the same reasons you mentioned.
I like a 5 piece, 18" bass drum configuration though.
