Re: My First Vintage Cymbal

I am! I'm not actively hunting online, but I'm on the lookout, locally and when I'm on tour.

Congrats on the 16! I can't wait to hear how you think it sounds in your setup!

Re: My First Vintage Cymbal

I happened upon a Kashian 20" ride that I just had to buy. To me, it DOES sound like a vintage A. It's a little on the heavy side, so it has clear definition, but unlike the A rides of comparable...

Re: Mexican Made PDP Drums

I have had many of these kits pass through my hands, as I help students buy drum sets. The CX, LX, and MX series kits are great-sounding drums! I like them more than I liked my old DW kit. I had...

Re: Snare Wire Buzz!

The heads on a well-timed drum will sympathetically resonate with other frequencies. In order to eliminate the snare buzz, you'll have to remedy that, or learn to live with it. :)

I'm curious to...

Re: Does it have to match?

My snare never matches my kit, wrap-wise. I bought a silver sparkle snare to match my silver sparkle kit, but the silver sparkle snare better matches, tonally, the gold sparkle kit. Go figure...

Re: Vintage Ludwig 3-ply, 12x18 Bop!

I have a Jazzette kit in gold sparkle. Somebody replaced the rail mount on the bass drum with a Pearl mount, though. It's a shame, but the plus side is that I was able to afford it that way! 😄 I...

Re: Beater Kit

I bought an Enforcer kit for $50 on craigslist, slapped some coated Ambassadors on it, and tuned it. It sounds fine. Enforcer is on par with Percussion Plus, Rockwood, Fender Starcaster, Sunlite,...

Re: Slingerland Hollywood Ace question

$250-300 is what I see them going for, more if it's a desirable finish.

I agree--I've owned several Jazz Fests, some Gretschs, and a couple of wood Rogers. None of them compare to the Hollywood...

Re: Future Vintage?

I specifically sought out an 80s Tama kit. Found a Superstar in 14/18/24...it was exactly what I was hoping for! I'm curious to try an "All Maple Shell" Pearl kit from the 70s. I hear great things...

Re: Another Craigslist Rant............

I asked for somebody to verify that a bass drum was 20" They said it was, that they had just measured it with tape. I got out there, and it was a 22". It turns out they measured the depth, hoop to...

Re: 28" Ludwig Marching Bass Drums...which one to use for Drum kit

I have used a 28x14, a 28x10, and a 28x7 bass drum for gigs/studio work. The 10" sounds the best--it smacks you in the gut and doesn't have the uncontrollable rumble that the 14" has, and it has...

Re: Do you ever feel overwhelmed with all your gear?

I felt overwhelmed with my 12 kits, 36 snares, and 300 cymbals. I downsized to 6 kits, 16 snares, and 100 cymbals. It felt so good, I'm looking to downsize more. Simplicity is so freeing. But,...

Re: Vintage Snares vs. Modern Snares

Hmm...I usually just do a touch up tuning of my snare before a gig (for the room) and don't mess with it until the next gig. I only bring one snare per gig, too, but I'll bring the snare I want for...

Re: Vintage Snares vs. Modern Snares

Depends on the snare and situation. Sometimes you want a fat woody sound that comes from the baseball bat edges of a 3-ply Ludwig or Slingerland snare, and sometimes you want something more snappy,...

Re: 17-inch Diameter Bass Drum

Yes. I had one. That particular specimen was a dud. I play on 16" and 18" bass drums regularly, so I know it's not that I just didn't like the size.

Sweet - looking drum, BTW! Looks sturdy as...

Re: Vintage Drum Values and Current Market

All used prices took a hit about 8 years ago, and they've almost climbed back up to where they were. Almost.

...at least that seems to be the story in Portland, OR.

Re: Drum case's

SKB roto-x are BY FAR the best for protecting your drums. The cardboard cases like the Econoline and Nomad cases only offer so much protection...more than bags, but less than plastic cases.

Re: Slingerland 3 Ply No Re-Rings

I've played on two sets. They sound very warm and "whoomph" like.

Re: Thoughts on playing a 13, 16, 20"

Thoughts? Just play 'em! If drums sound good together, play them together!

I fall for the 12/14/20 and 13/16/22 trap as well. I do have a 13/16/20 kit that I play that nobody ever asks why the...

Drilling satin flame wrap

Hey!

I'm going to be drilling into a shell with a satin flame wrap. (It's a modern custom drum, not a vintage drum) Are there any precautions I should take or tips for doing so to prevent the...

Re: Odd Slingerland configuration...???

Thanks guys! I figured it was some sort of "one off" kit.

Odd Slingerland configuration...???

Hey!
