Re: Ludwig Copper Phonic

Took mine out on a gig today for the first time, and wow.

It sounded exactly like on the DCP videos! The complexity inherent in the BB and Supras, combined with the darker bite of copper, made it...

Re: Stock snares

This. It seems that there are stock snares and then stock snares - and some of them are much better known than the others!

For example, it seems like any stock snare that came with any of the...

Re: Excessive snare buzz

Thanks for all the suggestions, everyone - I ended up overcranking the snare reso (I usually have it fairly tight, but I really went to town this time), retuned the top head, and cut down the snare...

Excessive snare buzz

Hi all, just a quick one.

I'm having an interesting problem with my Copper-Phonic. At any tuning, with different sets of wires, I'm getting an excess of snare buzz every time it is even lightly...

Re: Ludwig Copper Phonic

Yeah, the more I look at mine, the more I like it. I'm just a little perplexed by what is clearly liquid tracks on an otherwise very unique and cool finish.

The main thing is, it sounds great....

Re: Ludwig Copper Phonic

Well, mine arrived on my door thanks to the exceptional service of the DCP guys, who I can't recommend enough.

The drum itself is interesting. The patina is a little... odd, shall we say. It...

Has anyone got one of these yet, or does anyone know if they have started shipping? I have ordered from DCP, but haven't heard anything from them as to when they'll arrive other than "we'll be...

Re: Going to Istanbul!

Thanks for all the replies so far, everyone - it's funny how one of the most visited cities in the world seems relatively unknown when compared to other cities! I will most certainly be posting...

Going to Istanbul!

Greetings all. So, around Easter, I'll be heading to Istanbul for around three days (and the historical site of Ephesus for two, but that's another story). Because of my fairly limited time, I have...

Re: Australian Artisan drum makers.... how can you tell whos the "real deal"

Re: Funky snare - Supralite vs Acrolite

Snap up an Acro! You can get them here in Aus too depending on where you are - and $240 should just about see you one on the bay.

Here's Steve Jordan using one that's fairly cranked:...

Re: Recommendations on Small Snare

Seconded on the Musashi. I use one as my main snare at the moment - throw a two-ply head on it and it can do anything!

Re: Drum store tourism

I suspect it's a pilgrimage of sorts for forum members here to do such things.

When I visited the States a couple of years ago, I made the point of going out of my way to visit both Hollywood Pro...

Re: Dual ride positioning

Dennis, I've always wondered - do you find it strange having rides up that high, or are you just used to it? I tried it once and my arms tired out very quickly; it felt like I wasn't using my energy...

Re: Dual ride positioning

Two rides on the right, and you can even keep them at roughly the same height! Of course, this is dependent on your setup; if you're not flying the ride half off the kick then you will probably need...

Re: Snare Buzz Caused By Bass Guitar

This is gonna come across as hugely obvious and probably a little condescending, so I apologise - but have you considered just flipping your strainer to the 'off' position when cross-sticking? That...

Re: Wellington Custom Built Drums

Those look identical to Pearl's wood-fibreglass kits. Lugs, tom arms, everything... I'm looking at my own wood-fibreglass and they are the same bar the wrap.

Re: This guy gets an "A" for performance :)

Guys, just remember, the dude is 72. When you're 72 with a full head of white hair, let's see you try and pull off the same thing without everyone on the interwebs commenting on your lack of groove!

Re: When did you know drums were "it" for you? When did they become your passion?

I started playing drums at 13, didn't really catch on and I left it there.

Hearing Larry Mullen Jr of U2's beautiful simplicity and rock-solid groove when I first saw them live at age 18 got me...

Re: About these 13" snare drums...

13" snares with a depth of more than 6" are the absolute bomb. I'm currently playing a 13 x 7 Black Magic, and the backbeat is exactly as you've described - you can really dig in and feel it happen,...

Re: Trad. grip players check in ....

I play both, snare is always dead flat... as has been mentioned, I find grooving more fun with trad, and fills easier with matched.
