Re: Jimmy D'anda

I've always liked the Bulletboys (seen 'em 3 times) ..... and always liked Jimmy, as a drummer.

Re: Advice needed on correct gear.

It would be easy enough to set up an e-kit at home. It's tubes and clamps and pads. This guy marches with an e-kit. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f6wBD6DEKIY Not that you'd want to go that...

Re: Member leading other members on in a series of misleading questions in threads.

I think that's an awful harsh sentence for such a petty crime. Just ignore the guy. Or use the ignore button.

Re: Kick Drum physics experts in the house?

Might well be your head combo is wrong ..... for the sound you desire. You might want to experiment with felt strips across your batter and/or reso. heads. Maybe change the batter to a pinstripe. Or...

Re: 1980's Gretsch USA Custom

Sounds like these will be coming home with you. Being you have a 20", and a 22" kick ..... yeah, a larger kick ...... why not? I normally play my Gretsch 26, but I also have a Luddie 26. Luddie and...

Re: Value of a Yamaha Maple Custom Snare?

Though Yamaha stopped making that particular model, the current comparable snare is about $550, new. 300 eur would be a good place to start, at least. Selling used gear ..... you ask a certain price...

Re: 1980's Gretsch USA Custom

eBay prices usually go higher than local (craigslist type) listings, so if the seller isn't gonna go the eBay route, you might have a chance to get 'em cheaper. You're looking at a $5K set, new. So...

Re: Ludwig Vistalites

White Vistalite. Was not a big seller. So Ludwig Chrom-o-wrapped 'em. Heavy like a boat anchor.

Re: Snare Choice for Punk Gig

If you have one, I'd go with that. I love my Omar Hakim, but for a punk gig (or any loud gig) .... I'd be taking my 14x6 COB.

Re: 3 piece for Metal (is it good enough)?

Honestly, what you have is what you have. If you're passionate about drumming, you'll make it work. If you want to add more drums and cymbals later, that's OK, too.

Re: What's your take on electronic drum sets?

Before jumping into gear, talk to the teacher. Your situation (small apartment) sounds like the e-kit is the only option, as far as having any kit at home. But you don't need one right away. All I...

Re: WFL versus Ludwig blue and olive.

Being I have an early 70's Ludwig 3 ply kit, and a 26" kick (Ludwig and Ludwig 3 ply mahogany), yeah, that's what I'd do. Really, what sound do you like? The warm tone of Mahogany, or the warm tone...

Re: Best way to tune a Powerstroke 3 for Bass Drum?

Not all bass drums respond well to JAW tuning. So, you need to experiment a bit. Find the sweet spot of your drum. The spot where your drum really starts to sing. I'm a big fan of the coated P3. It's...

Re: How big of a difference do drum heads make?

New info. Since you've played clear Emperiors, before ..... and you liked the sound, then yeah, maybe you should try 'em.

Re: How big of a difference do drum heads make?

Define "significant"? You may hear a difference. You may not. Will the difference be significant? Hard to say. Depends on a lot of things. Your hearing. The acoustics of the room. You say you just...

Re: How big of a difference do drum heads make?

Yes, Emperiors will sound different. But what makes you think that's the sound you want. Getting rid of unwanted overtones might be a case of just placing a moongel on the head. Or a ritchie ring. Or...

Re: I'm in a Band - And I Have a Problem

That cleared up, yup, that's the way to go. Sounds like you have a good match. Cancel the audition with the second band as gracefully as you can. And good luck.

Re: I'm in a Band - And I Have a Problem

So ..... are you in this band (the one you want most), or are you just auditioning? Auditioning for a band is not the same as being offered a gig. Don't quit the band you just joined, unless you know...

Re: Dilemma in choosing a drum kit. Please help!

For your "first" drum kit, both options work. My personal vote would be the used Mapex kit. The Planet Z cymbals are bottom of the rung Zildjians. But, The 3 Sabian AA's (info here ...
