Re: Pdp Concept Maple or Pearl Export

Sound ..is up to your ears. Quality, I'd say those kist are the same, mayeb the pdp has a little edge.
I'd choose the pdp if it were me, depending on the drum sizes offered, which matter.

Re: rare yamaha stage custom ive bought

If it sounds good... sure. Looks like brass to me, and likely to sound fine and versatiel fro many kinds of music.

Tune it up, play that thing and you can answer that question.

Re: First use of a click

I prefer the 'clave' sounding click, to a 'click' sound. The wood sounds very 'organic' not computerized.
Come to think of it, somebody should invent the 'sledgehmamer' click, you know.... the sound...

Re: Keeping time when no one else is...

As said on here once - " after the count-in the whole band keeps time". There is push and pull but somebody should not be consistently dragging. I am guessing its worse when no bassist there.

Re: First use of a click

That is not a click but 'claves' - wood sticks hit together, just like a cowbell, intentionally.

Re: Pain in my left wrist.

Hmmm, I wouldn't say Keith Moon wasn't a hard hitter at all, he was a butterfly allover the kit. Totally fluid player.

Grohl yep sure, but not all bodies built the same and yours is clearly...

Re: Gretsch Renown Maple vs PDP Concept Maple

Again, it should be up to your ears. You need to listen to these and see what works for you, the drum sizes etc. If I recall, the Renown bass drum is 18" deep, not my cup of tea, but it may be yours....

Re: Types of Snare Drum

Ok, so for the same shell, but lighter lower mass lugs, what do you expect as the outcome in sound (all other factors the same)?

Re: Yamaha steel snares

I'd choose the Tama over that.
BUT I'd suggest you get a used steel snare. there are a lot out there, and some are a very good deal. Older Pearl steel shell snares ( called a 'Jupiter') with 10...

Re: Good deal?

great drums too, but pretty sure they have a deeper 18 x 22 bass drum. Not the greatest setup for a small jazz setting.

Re: Filling in badge holes on lacquered drums

not bolts, screws. one would not call a 2mm diameter screw a 'bolt'.
but i agree, if it were me i would leave these small holes empty.

Re: Filling in badge holes on lacquered drums

2 to 3 mm is pretty small. why not just get 4 nice screws, small heads and flat heads and screw them in?
Nobody will spot thsi from more than a meter away anyway.

the only other quick fix I can...

Re: Good deal?

personally i would keep looking. sounds like the sizes are not perfect for you. it is not selling very fast, so you have time to look further.

if you do play all those genres you list, i would...

Re: Staining drum heads with coffee

I've seen coffee stains on coated heads.
If you had an old worn coated head, could cut some piece of it out and do a test run, otherwise its a whole bass drum head down the drain.

Re: Good deal?

i quite like a 20 bass drum. i suppose the 10-16-20 combo could be used in other genres you name - like jazz fusion or latin. then again that snare is mostly suited to rock too.

Re: Good deal?

Those toms look deep to me, so beware they may not fit in all music genres. Its mostly a rock kit.

Re: Crazy? (looking for an opinion or two...)

I would never give up a nice complete vintage kit like a Rogers to buy any 'new' kit. A new kit will always be there, and you will never get a Rogers back, at least easily. I hope you play it.
