Re: Sonor-king of the micro kits?

That's because he's endorsed by Sonor. All depends on what kind of money you wanna spend. The Sonor is a good little kit, for the money. Personally, the Whitney Penguin nesting kit, is my favorite,...

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 ...

Re: I've got the "looper" blues

Re: Old school rock bass drum setup.

The Pinstripe head, came out, in 1974. So yeah .... before that, we made our own Ritchie rings, and used felt strips. And lots of people still use those methods, today.

Unless the drums are just a total mess, well worth $180.

Re: The old Pearl Exports??

If you notice, ISS suspends the drum from the rim, between only two lugs. That puts a lot of torque on just that one small area of the rim. A RIMS (or derivative) will suspend the drum at four...

Re: Played my first Gig last night.

Another way to approach hand percussion/drumset formula. Configure your hand percussion into a drum set configuration. I own a Remo Mondo snare, and it's a wonderful addition to other hand drums.

Re: The old Pearl Exports??

Treat them well, and they should last you a long, long, time. As others have stated, the ISS mounts are not so great. Many ways to fix/work around those, however. Personally, I went with Gauger...

Re: Opinions on what to do with these old ludwig Classic Maples?

Depends on how much work (and money) you want to throw into the project. Those shells probably have a nice maple exterior, but you'll only find that out after you de-wrap 'em. Personally, I like wood...

Re: Removing the wrap from old Ludwigs?

De-wrapping can be a real pain. In the case of your mixed years, I think 67 shells will be mahogany exterior, and 69 shells will be maple exterior. So you're gonna wind up with unmatched shells, once...

Re: what's the effect of central lugs on the sound

I've got Ludwig 3 ply Classic shells, and center lug 3 ply Ludwig Club Dates. And I seriously doubt the difference is discernible to the human ear.
