Re: Why Play Vintage?

Mark, this is a very good point. My Slingerland kit is not museum quality, so I have it tricked out with Gauger RIMS mount on the ride tom and DW stands/pedal. My Ludwig kit is near museum quality,...

Re: Maybe off-topic - mufflers on modern drum?

That's the same model I have too. Good snare sound, easy to tune.

Re: Maybe off-topic - mufflers on modern drum?

:) Certainly an option... my Acrolite has less metal sound!

Re: Maybe off-topic - mufflers on modern drum?

Good point, and worth trying on the floor tom. Thanks!

But to go back to the snare problem, it has a godawful metal overtone, like beating a lawnmower blade with a hammer. The snare is a 6.5x14,...

Re: Maybe off-topic - mufflers on modern drum?

The edges are original, and it has the warm, fat sound. When I say the Slingerland has a long sustain, it's relative of course. It's not as long as the DW's sustain (I love the Santana comparison...

Re: Maybe off-topic - mufflers on modern drum?

My son uses those on his kit, but they're not adjustable. If I use my 63 Slingerland as an example: the 16" has a very long sustain. I've dialed in the tone control to barely touch... not enough to...

Re: Maybe off-topic - mufflers on modern drum?

Thanks everybody! I'll probably try the clip-on muffler first. I looked at a couple of the gel products suggested, but I can't get the " kids snot" image out of my head ;) .

Re: Maybe off-topic - mufflers on modern drum?

That's got to be one of the better lines I've heard in a while!

Although to be serious, the resale for DW Performance series isn't good in my area. I'm not sure adding a muffler would harm the...

Maybe off-topic - mufflers on modern drum?

This is probably off-topic but I'd like to get some feedback please.

I recently bought a DW Performance drum kit as part of a trade. It's my first DW, although I've owned several older PDPs. In...

Re: It's Ludwig Time Again

O-lugs, I think you're right. If I remember correctly, both the Hollywood and Big Beat came in 12-13-16-22 configs and it was the choice of hardware that differentiated them. This kit has the flat...

Re: Blended Family

Here ya go... the main kit is 1963, 13/16/22. 1970s vintage Zildjians. The 12" tom is an orphan from a 1960 kit, and I've since sold it. Hardware is mostly DW, and the snare is a 6.5x14 DW...

Re: I Have Never "Gotten" Gretsch Drums

DrumBob, I agree with you on Remo/Evans. What are your thoughts on G1 coateds? Do you think they are too close in sound to Ambassadors?

Re: A new pedal for gigs

It's not on your list, but I like the Ludwig Atlas Pro pedal. It's very much like my old Speed King, but "better" in subjective feel. The two pedals you list above are good (I use DW pedals on my...

Re: Mexican Made PDP Drums

Having owned both, I would put the PDP Platinum more like the DW Design Series than the Performance Series, especially the snare drums. But to be honest, I don't see much difference in quality...

Re: Mexican Made PDP Drums

I've owned a couple of PDP kits over the years, and my son plays a PDP FS kit now. I always liked the tone of them, and the 800- and 900-series hardware quality is great! The only thing I didn't...

Re: 13/16/20 - Am I crazy?

That's a good point, and when I had Precision Drum make my set, I specified the 20" bass to be cut 16" deep. The depth seems to give me a wide range of tuning, and I can tune it to a deeper pitch. ...

Re: 13/16/20 - Am I crazy?

Thanks, everybody! Something I've seen is that most drum makers don't ship this configuration anymore unless it's a custom build. I guess it's too "vintage" maybe?

13/16/20 - Am I crazy?

When I was in high school band (late 70s/early 80s), I had a fantastic band teacher. Unfortunately he was a trumpet player, not a good percussion instructor, but he was fantastic in that he would...

Re: I Have Never "Gotten" Gretsch Drums

I've done some checking, I suspect my friend is wrong. I think these are Catalina Club Jazz drums.

Re: I Have Never "Gotten" Gretsch Drums

I guess my ignorance is showing :). In the 70s/80s, I know there are different badged types... does that indicate a different line? Like Catalina vs Renoun?

Re: The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

My Ludwig set is sparkle red. I suggested that I buy a sparkle green set off Reverb and combine them into a Christmas jellybean set. She just rolled her eyes and walked away. :(

Re: I Have Never "Gotten" Gretsch Drums

O-lugs, an acquaintance of mine has a 1980s (I think) Gretsch bop kit for sale. It is a natural wood finish, but I don't know the badges, or what line of drums it is. Sizes appear to be 12/14/18...
