Re: steel vs. maple snares

My late 60's steel Yamaha snare has the internal adjustable muffler, so I can get a real nice ring and "crack" to it with it off, or a more "papery", quieter tone to it when I have it applied to its...

Drunk idiots at gigs

Hey all,
I don't know if this has been discussed before, but I was just wondering if people would like to share their experiences with drunk people at gigs who insist on bothering the band...

Re: THE YAMAHA DRUMS THREAD

Wow-I feel kind of intimidated reading about all the high line Yamaha products here, but I would like to say that I absolutely love my Stage Custom Nouveaus. I know that they are "mid level" drums,...

Re: identify this kit please

I'm no expert, but those lugs look like the ones on my old Maxwin kit.

Re: Which is the best drum kit for my price range? (new drummer)

I used to have a Tama Stagestar, which is about the lowest entry level set that Tama ever produced. (I think they have been discontinued, actually). With good skins (Evans G2 clears) and proper...

Re: How are yamahas

Old post, but I'm going to respectfully disagree with Stu on his opinion of Yamaha steel snares...I have a vintage (late '60's early '70's) steelie, and I think it is among the best I have ever...

Re: The kits you didn't like....

I used to have a 7pc "concert tom" (only batter heads, no lugs for reso) Maxwin kit. Poor man's Pearls, and they sounded even worse when I picked up a pair of fiberglass 8" and 10" Pearl rack toms to...

Re: Taye Studio Maple

Thats a beautiful kit, man. I have wondered about Taye drums for awhile, and your review was very informative-thank you for posting your experience! (i'm blown away by the "sliding" tom mount on the...

Re: big bass drums

If you are currently using a felt beater on your bass pedal, try using a flat faced wooden beater. Also, install a kickpad (Remo Falamslams, or something similar) on the batter head. This will give...

Re: Porting a bass drum

Thanks guys, for the info...I have since bought a 4" ported offset ebony Evans G2 reso head. (I chickened out of the "tin can" method).
I also was interested in a G2 "vented" reso head-it had a...

Porting a bass drum

Hi all,
I currently have a 22" Yamaha Stage Custom bass drum with a 6 " hole in the dead center of the reso head. I am thinking of getting a replacement because I am not that fond of the huge...

Re: new to timbales

I have been using CB rototoms for quite a few years now, and I am thinking that a set of timbales would be an interesting option as well.

Re: Filling the bass drum

Batter heads have evolved enough so that pillows, blankets and stuff like that are unecessary. I have used an Aquarian PS 1 on my old 18" Tama Stagestar , and now I'm using an Evans' EMAD on my...

Re: New Snare - Have I done the right thing?

Ken, if you want your drums to sound "right" with respect to proper tuning, I recommend getting a Drumdial tuner, or something similar...I have difficulty tuning by ear as well, but the DD tuner...

Re: changing bottom snare head

Oh, don't ever put a "hazy" skin on the batter (top) skin..they are meant only for the bottom (resonant) skin. For a top skin I would put an Evans Power center, or an EC reverse dot on your snare....

Re: changing bottom snare head

I have an Evans Hazy 300 Reso on my 1968 Yamaha snare, and it sounds either papery, or "piccolo" like, depending on how tight the muffler is, and how hard I hit it...can't go wrong with Evans!

Re: Oh my god! What have I done?

Wow man, that really sucks-especially on a vintage drum like that one. I'm assuming that you tune "by ear?" Try using a DrumDial tuner, or something similar...I swear by mine, because it prevents...

Re: YAMAHA STAGE CUSTOM VS. SONOR FORCE 3005

Re: How much do you use your 8" Tom?

I special ordered an 8" Tama Swingstar tom to go with my old Stagestar kit...it took 8 months to arrive, and in that time period, I had ordered a CB set of Roto Toms (6", 8" 10") to suffice in the...

Re: Favourite Drum Finish

I admire a nice "burst" or "fade" style finish on drums, but in the end, I settled on a much more subdued matte black oak finish (Yamaha SC Nouveaus)...It's a very subtle finish, easy to maintain...

Re: YAMAHA STAGE CUSTOM VS. SONOR FORCE 3005

My band and I were recently playing at a dance with another band, and their drummer (who is my lead guitarists son, incidentally) had a 5 pc set of Sonor Force 3005's. (I have SC Nouveaus). I thought...
