Re: Report from the dark side ;)

I'd do it too.




Love the hay bales in pics #5 and 6. Looks like farm country.

Re: What's your latest purchase?

My first Gretsch.

Oops - wrong forum - LOL

I dabble with bass a little and just picked up this used short scale Gretsch g2202.
Wasn't sure if I wanted to return it at first. But after playing...

Re: Yamaha 18" Bass drum Beech Custom Blueberry

Aren't we all? LOL

Seriously though - good luck with that. It doesn't sound like something you'd run into too often.

Re: Another "is this a good price" question (DW Collectors)

I just checked some of the 'sold' listings for those Collectors. Prices are crazy-all-over-the-board.
Lowest priced set went for $700 and highest priced one was over $7000.
Hard to generalize from...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Thanks.

It looks pretty good now.
I bought it used, and it was slightly ratty, but I could tell it would clean up nicely with a little work.
It sounds good too.

Re: Yamaha Drums

Not sure if you're serious about the spurs.

But I really like the ones on my Stage Customs too. I've got the previous version and I guess they changed them a little on the 2014's. I haven't seen...

Sounds like the Pearl could be the best deal - unless:

you have specific sizes you're looking for,
you have a specific number of drums, or configuration you're looking for,

Re: Some Pearl Reference Pure porn ;)

Very classy looking set.

I'd have a real hard time playing it though - especially as it's set up leftie - LOL

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I've strayed from the Zildjian path a few times. But so far, I've always returned to it.

Re: The matching snare

I've got three kits with matching snares, but I don't use them.

Then again, I don't play out, so I don't count - ha ha.

Re: Pearl Crystal Beat Drums

Ya - that 18" bass drum is only 12" deep. A very compact kit indeed.

That floor tom on the SLS584/C doesn't look 14" deep though.

Re: Why is it you never see threads saying....

I think people do think in terms of 'cymbal sets', but everyone defines it differently.

For myself, if I get a set of cymbals, I get hi hats and two rides.

Re: Cutting down drums

Looks good.

There really shouldn't be an issue with the tom mount. Take off one of the heads, loosen the screws that hold the tom mount base, then put the shaft in. Move it around a bit
