    Yamaha FP9. Direct or chain?

    I had the chain drive, swapped out with the strap, and then sold it. I prefer the older Yamaha pedals.

    Yamaha Maple Custom Snare MSD O115 vs Maple Custom Absolute ASD-0105

    Yamaha Maple Custom drums are to be avoided, due to those lugs. They can pull out under high tension. Oooops.... Pretty much the same reason I avoid ANY single point lugs (including Canopus).

    The feel of a drum

    The feel of your stick hitting the head will be affected by: single headed concert tom vs. double headed tom the drum head (thickness, tension) the stick (stiffness, flexibility, size, bead) number of tension lugs size of drum how the drum is mounted (how much the drum "gives" when struck)...

    I suddenly own this 6-piece Yamaha Tour Custom

    Honestly, I didn't even play it with the stock hoops. I put die cast hoops on all my snare drums by default. I did play one in stock form at NAMM, and it sounded totally fine.

    I suddenly own this 6-piece Yamaha Tour Custom

    Really, really nice. I swapped out the "Slingerland" hoops for die cast. I love it. Especially the adjustable butt side.

    Great drums! Suggestion, when mounting the 12" and 13" on the bass drum, turn the mount 180 degrees and then position the toms further down the arms.

    Selling on Ebay vs. Reverb-Pros/Cons? Ebay is just atrocious for selling anymore..............

    I look forward to the demise of eBay. I hate it. Haven't used it to sell in over ten years. Reverb has been pretty painless.
