Re: 3 Used Kits to Choose From...

Are the drums all the same sizes? Example - do they all have 22" bass drums?

Re: 3 Used Kits to Choose From...

Which one does your grandson like?

What kind of hardware is included with the Yamaha?

Re: Sonor Safari or Bop

tunnelman3:

I'd say if at all possible, try to get to a store that has some of those sets to try out.
In particular, try sets with different size bass drums.
The smallest current production...

Re: Sonor Safari or Bop

I've got that kit and it's great.

The OP didn't give a lot of info about what he's looking for - just a choice between those two.
The Yamaha is just a 3 drum shell pack - bass, mounted tom and...

Re: Sonor Safari or Bop

If the choice is between those two kits, I'd go for the Bop, no questions asked.
Simply because of the bass drum size.

Re: bass drum claws

I put some wide butterfly claws from a 22" bass onto an 18" bass.
They were a little too flat though - not enough curve to them. I had to bend them a little to fit.
I'll probably replace them...

Re: question to all drummers

When you hit those Oaks, they're going to be so loud that your ears will bleed and you'll have to change your underwear - LOL

Just kidding, of course.

I have a few ways I handle loudness, but...

Re: Worth $75.00

I thought we had a lot of cheap drums around here, but I think you've got us beat.

I'd get that kit for the pedal and re-sell the drums.
The problem with cheap drums is that you could start...

Re: Realistic Expectations

Ha ha.

Only trouble is that rustyfingers would probably compare himself to other fishermen or stamp collectors, and think he'd never be as good as them and give up.

Re: Ready to buy new kit. Need advice.

You've got a lot to pick from.

My 18" bass drum sounds just as loud as my 20. The 18 doesn't have the tuning range though, and I use it with a riser which brings it to the same height as the 20....

You run into a snag though with a motorcycle. LOL

Re: are the constant release and heel toe techniques the same?

Completely different, the way I do them.

Heel/toe - first strike heel, on the foot board ahead of the hinge - second strike toe catching the rebound, both on the downward movement of the leg. ...
