Re: What makes a pro kit?

Well, one of the main reasons to by pro series drums is drum size selection. You get a Sonor Bop kit ..... that's a 18x16, 12x8, 14x14. You want a 18x14, or an 18x12 kick ..... then you gotta shop...

Re: Got hustled, any input apreciated

I wouldn't give up on 'em right away. Yes, you paid to much ..... but that's done and over. Put some new heads on 'em, and play 'em. At least they're a set to play, while you can research and decide...

Re: The legendary sweet spot

I think you're right, here. And you'd probably get three "ranges" of tune. Low, medium, and high ..... within the given parameter of the drums sweet spot. The widest range drum I ever had,...

Re: The legendary sweet spot

This. I've had plenty of drums that sound horrible "just above wrinkle". And you have to get up past that (more than just above), to get a pleasant tone. And that's where the sweet spot starts. Once...

Re: Help me find which batter & reso heads I should use?

Chasing recorded sound is a very hard venture. For one thing, the type of mics and the studio EQ/effects has a huge affect on the recorded sound. Better to concentrate on what your drums sound like...

Re: Bass Drum Spur Preference

How hard do you kick, and do you have problems with bass drum creep? SC-BS4's would be the better way to go, if you have problems with bass drum movement. And they have a more modern vibe. SC-BS5's...

Re: Luddie Thermogloss '69 to '71

It's a Sabian Tony Verderosa V-Wave. It's an acoustic cymbal emulating an electronic cymbal. I will play e-drums, but I like acoustic cymbals.

I'm using my Sleishman double pedal, to center my...

Re: Ebay dissapointment

I've had wrong eBay items sent to me, a few times. The seller should correct the mistake, and take the shipping cost hit. His fault, and it's the cost of doing business.

Re: New Score off eBay

I had a 22, 13, 16 RC in that finish. Great drums. Congrats on some new tubs. As far as heads, put whatever you like on 'em. Yamaha ships 'em with pins ..... very old school studio vibe. I've had 3...

Re: club date se

The new Club Dates have a cherry/gum shell. I'm pretty sure they were never meant to be in the Element line. They are a very warm sounding kit. Total vintage sound and vibe, in a modern kit.

Re: 24" bass drum - 10" main snare, surely not?

Not a fan of the 10" snare, but if that's what the customer wants .... so be it. Certainly he/she will have a signature sound.

Re: Your opinions on this kit?

Yeah, at that price point, you get UT heads, and it's pretty much a given that your gonna want to swap 'em out.

Re: Your opinions on this kit?

Nice set. The Element series is very popular. I know a guy who gigs one in a blues band. Never heard him complain about it. And it sounds good.

Re: Gretsch Broadkasters Vintage Build; Floor Tom Legs Rattle Against Rezo Hoop

Interesting. Every RB kit I've ever seen, has close tolerances between the leg and die cast rim. Mine doesn't rattle, however. So it's not a problem, just a quirk.
