Re: Yamaha Drums

I think you'll enjoy those. They're great drums. I've got BCAN from the same era. You got a good deal. Have fun.

Re: How do you feel about buying used records?

I've bought lots of CDs at used stores. I've wondered about it. It seems like the artist should get something from it. I've even bought copies of albums my own band has recorded. Of coarse it was on...

Re: Is this suspicious?

The piracy doesn't bother me as much as the real intention of the email. I don't know this person. And T Underhill posted almost the same email from the Detroit area. Someone is up to no good. They...

Re: Is this suspicious?

I sure appreciate your replies. I'll turn it in as spam. The guys name is Bill Smith. There were no attachments. Us old gullible, non-hi-tech drummers need your help. Thanks

Is this suspicious?

I got an email from someone I don't know, saying his son took lessons online from Mike Johnson and he recommends them 100%. He went on to say that he has pdf files on a flash drive of the lessons for...

Re: Worst song ever

Shattered by the Stones comes to mind for me. There was a lot of bad music on the radio in the 80's. There was some good stuff too though.

Re: My icecream bar....

New heads sure look nice. You've got some serious cym. too. Do you have zero-rings on all your drums? Don't those kill the tone a lot? I've used those on my snare before, but it's been a while.

Re: The Best Hard Rock/Metal Snare!

Shoot I play some metal and payed 40 bucks for my snare. It's a late 80's Yamaha steel 6 1/2" X 14" I really like it. I sold the Dynasonic COB to fund a cym purchase and haven't missed it at all. The...

Re: Poll: do you double bass?

#6 for me. I've been working on it for quite a few yr.and still nowhere close to where I want to be. I guess I'm slow and old. But I'll keep working on it.

Re: Musically, what are you involved with at the present?

1. How many bands are you in? One and a half. I'm in a 60's/70's classic rock band that has yet to play a gig. We've been looking for the right guitarist for about 6 months. We may have the right guy...

Re: Matched Grip Question

Mine is B. I've been working on finger tip usage lately though. So that may be influencing that. I've been playing matched grip over 40 yr. I think that you'll go through stages as you grow...

Re: 1987 Yamaha Tour Custom

They're not RC's but real close IMO. These drums are birch inside and outside with Philippine mahogany for the middle plys. I think Yamaha only had 3 lines back then. RC, Tour, and Stage

Fooling around was me just jammin' when I 1st got my Q3. There are lots of...

Re: 1987 Yamaha Tour Custom

Those are real good drums if they're in good shape. I still have some from 88" but they're power sizes. I used coated ambassadors over clear ambassadors the most on those drums. They came with...

Re: Double bass practice tools

I would say any pad should work. Wood floors are going to transfer noise rather well. My friend lived in an upstairs apartment. He bought an E-kit to practice there. I could hear his pedals 2 floors...

Re: Mid/high level kits.

I assume you're talking about the performers. I rank those pretty high. They are lower in price than the maple, but I like them better. I don't own any. I do have high end birch yammies though.

Re: Solid and tight drumming

That was nice, good, solid, and smooth playing. I could handle it if the cyms. were a little louder in the mix. I could hear them, I just think they could be boosted a bit. Good job.

Re: Looking for solid value kit on a $1500-$1700 budget.

I'm with Bo on this one. You can make mid-level drums sound good, with the right new heads, and tuning. Cyms are what they are. So get some good ones.

Re: What's On Your Shopping List?

I need to buy a real X-hat. The one I've been using for about 10yr. is one that I made myself. I 'm thinking about getting a a 70's top new beat. I've got two vintage bottoms. The top that I use is...

Re: I've learned so much here.

If I can't say anything possitive, then I don't post anything. I will post something that might sound neg. if I think it can really help, but usually I don't have sound advice.

This and one other forum that I participate in, are such a blessing. I've learned a lot from everyone here. I've recently learned how to play Dbl. and triple stroke rolls. Now I know that might...

Re: Doubles with Cross Stick

Re: Found some ancient recordings!

ah the good old days. I had a Krut 18'' in the 70's I think it sounded pretty good. If I heard it now, I might not think so though. I'm so grateful for my mother's patience. I was self taught. The...
