Re: Mapex mydentity

I've been real happy with the sound of the kit and the quality of the wrap. When I ordered the kit they were very accommodating. I wanted a 14x12 tom, they only had that size in a floor tom so I...

Re: Ist gig done...underwhelming

Congratulations on your first gig. Don't over worry about your band mates. Just focus on you. If they were that sloppy then you need to decide if you want to stay or leave the band. But in terms of...

Re: Anyone just play "for the fun of it?"

Fun motivated me in the beginning as well. In the 80s I played high school gigs, local pubs, larger rock venues, back yards and block parties. There was a time in my life when the band I played in...

Re: And dad's drums are arriving!

If I remember correctly, we played a private gig at an ice skating rink. There were kegs of beer, a packed crowed and some really drunk girl came flying into the kit skates first. Took out my head,...

Re: Tuning trubbs with my 26" kick drum - Help!!

I concur, letting up off the beater or playing off the head has helped me a lot. I've also noticed that I get a nice round sound from the kick. I'm still adjusting but it gets better with time.

Re: Odd Sized Toms

I could not get the 18 inch FT or 26 inch bass head at my local Sam Ash or Guitar Center. I had to go online for both.

Re: Sonor Arena vs. Mapex Meridian Maple

Both are good drum kits and I don't see a clear advantage in buying one over the other. Play them both, determine which sound and finish combination you like best then buy that one.

Re: How hard do you try to keep your kit in pristine condition?

I take pleasure in the act of keeping my kit maintained. I get the same feeling with my car. Be it the kit or the car, if it gets dirty or messed up I crank up the music, take out the cleaning...
