I always enjoy Ron Brown's videos.
Strangely, they look great and sound even better! Seems that Andy even cobbled together a couple kits for other folks too - who seem to hold them in high regard. I didn't have a set of Exports for the framework and couldn't afford the veneer for the re-wrap, otherwise I'd have a set of Guru drums, too. I might be able to fashion a reasonable facsimile given a donor set of Exports or YSC's and some wood-grain contact paper.You need to post a pic of your re-wrapped Exports.
My drums are now worth loads more than they were . So much for that theory.Since different people expect different results and because there is no single definition of what drums are supposed to sound like, then there are many different acceptable answers. But I’m guessing it is mostly a case fo diminishing returns.
I agree, why buy something you love to play, to let it at home when you are going to do what it has been made for, being played. I have never bought an extra low end keyboard when I was gigging just to keep all my gears at home, I bring all of them, they are all in super comfy bags, I instal all of them myself so, no risk of being damaged. High end kit are made to provide you a better experience, life is too short to cut that in buying a low end kit to save the high end.... And to say at the end of your life: " Shoot, I should have played my high end kit more, what a waste of money and time!!!"This^
In the video, he mentions that he has a kit he loves and gigged it regularly, then purchased another kit to replace it for many (most?) of his gigs. Seems to me that the second kit is the giant waste of money and is superfluous.
he also said his high end kit he got cheap.. but all you'se should get the cheap bread and butter version. funny that.I don't think Rob has a single video I would call a waste of time.
He made a great point, that if you think you "need" that kit, then it's a huge waste of money. Otherwise, buy what you want because you want it.
It's a video designed to spark a lot of clicks and likes, hence more income for his channel.He made a great point, that if you think you "need" that kit, then it's a huge waste of money. Otherwise, buy what you want because you want it.
You're starting to sound more and more like Darth Vater/drumsalldayWhatever? Context! I believe it's actually about rate of profit . labour , investment etc...... I still have the drums, I enjoy them every time I play them and they have increased in monetary value .. where is it diminishing? this thread is a Yamaha add! plain and simple.. oh sorry, words of wisdom.
I disagree with the guessed figure of 99%.Yes, they are…..at least for 99% of the players who own them and judged by the question..: are these drums making me play and sound better..?
