Re: "intermediate level drum kits jazz" which to buy?. and which choose..

I don't care for 16" bass drums.
The Tama is birch. I've got a Yamaha bop kit that's birch and it's kind of bright sounding, but sounds real good tuned up a little higher.
The Catalinas don't get...

Re: Can you turn an "intermediate" kit into a "pro" kit?

If it's a kit you're going to keep, and it makes you happy, then go for it.
If you ever plan to sell it though....

Re: Are there fewer demands for a drummer now, than before?

This ^^^^ is your second comment.

I think I addressed it fairly well in my post.
If not, I either misunderstood, or you need to state your question more clearly, dude.

Re: Can you turn an "intermediate" kit into a "pro" kit?

There are some few examples of mid level kits using the same shells as pro level kits.
They just installed different hardware (and maybe heads) on the shells.
Ran across a few, but can't think...

Re: What makes a pro kit?

Most has been covered already, but I do think there's (sometimes) something to the saying that when you pay more, you get more.
Not always though - you have to look and inspect.

Better...

Re: Yamaha Live Custom Oak - opinions?

Would you happen to have a picture of that kit you could post?
If you already did, I must have missed it.
Do you have the 10 and 13 up top?

Re: New kit....don't know why though

I'd say play 'em for a while and then consider gifting them to a GOA drummer (or a future GOA drummer).

Re: Yamaha drum kit, need advice.

I would buy those for that price.
They'll need a bit of cleaning up, but you'll have a good sounding set to work with.

Is all the drum related stuff (stands, cymbals, snare, etc.) included with the set?

Re: Are there fewer demands for a drummer now, than before?

Too broad.

First of all, there's live drumming. Just as much skill is required as at any other time. There's no real short cut to paying your dues.
I think there's less call for live drumming...

Re: New Drum Set

Have you tried some?

I'd say, go look at a bunch of drums, try them out if possible,
and then get the ones you want that fall within your budget.

Re: Strip it???

Well, you've done it before and know what's involved.

So the decision is easy (but yours). It just boils down to whether you think the end result will be worth the effort involved.

Re: Yamaha Drums

If the V2. comes in the form of an update for the existing M12, I'm all for it.

An editing program for it would be most welcome too. Right now, editing it is tedious - at best.

Re: The Drum Set As Melody Instrument

They shouldn't be reclassified as melodic because they don't produce overtones that are harmonic partials.
The overtones are somewhat chaotic, but more so in cymbals.

I don't think that was the...

Re: Sorry - this just had to be posted!

That's going to be a really nice table.

I want one for my living room.

(beautiful shell _ are you going to use your trademark hardware on it?)
