    Sticky: Re: Drum Riser on the Cheap

    My smaller riser really doesn't add much time to the setup and breakdown. It's well worth it in terms of the look of the stage. I also realized another potential use for it. Some of the venues we...
  2. Re: Who makes quality single braced hardware?

    Check out the new RoadPro Light Series from Tama.. I just got a straight/boom cymbal stand and I'm very happy with it. I got a cymbal and a 12 inch rack to hanging on it and it's rock solid.

    Re: What's the best gig you've ever played?

    Back in 1981-82 my band opened for the British hardcore punk band, 999. They had a minor hit called "Homicide". We booked the gig with one phone call because the promoter somehow was under the...
  4. Re: Sugardaddys - Third gig report - this might be the last one.

    Bish,
    Your story sounds eerily familiar to mine. I was in a band with a husband and wife for 5 years as well. The wife was an awful singer, drank during gigs, forgot lyrics to songs she'd been...

    Sticky: Re: DW Drums Discussion

    Update: I replaced the factory heads on the toms with clear G2s, and I love the sound I'm getting! They tuned up easily, without gels or any other kind of muffling. I also replaced the reso head on...

    Unfortunately my cell phone and poor lighting make pictures that don't nearly do these drums justice. They are truly beautiful. To answer the above posts, the stock heads appear to be Remo UT,...

    Hi All,
    I am now the proud owner of a Design Series in Tobacco Burst. I am still dialing in the tuning with the factory heads, but I welcome any suggestions on how to get the best sound out of...

    The kit has arrived, so I feel I should continue this thread on the DW sticky.

    Re: Any regrets?

    I regret that I took such a long break from playing. I wouldn't have been easy with young kids, but I wish I had at least kept up some minimal amount of playing so that I would be much further ahead...

    Yep, pulled the trigger! I promised my wife this would be my last kit. She said it will be with THIS wife! :icon_lol:
    Anyway I'm psyched for it to come and now that I'm in two bands, there should...

    Re: Can't get 42 strand wires right

    I bought a Tama SLP Black Brass that came with a 42 strand wire. I couldn't get enough snare buzz out of it, even after changing heads twice and switching to 20 strand Puresound wires. I asked my...

    I finally got a chance to see a Design kit in person and play it. It was a display model on a shelf in a store and the guy graciously took it down and set it up for me even though I told him up...

    Re: Tama Superstar Classic Maple

    I know that they would sound great and that no one in the audience would know (or care) what species of wood the drummer's kit is. For me though, if this is going to be my last kit purchase, I'd...

    How do you like the kit so far? I am considering a new kit and I want one in North American Maple. The DW Design series seems to be the best value.

    Re: Mixers

    I've been looking into those. Seems like an economical way to make the transition from analog. Plus it's got all the effects and 6 busses for monitors. How do you like it so far? Are you using...

    Re: Sugardaddys - First gig report

    I agree with this 100%! I am currently in 2 bands preparing for first gigs, and I know all the little glitches won't be worked out until we play a few times in front of an audience. I haven't...

    Tama Superstar Classic Maple

    Has anyone played these? I've seen some videos, and they sound great, but I've never seen them in person. I know they are made with Asian Maple, not North American, but I've heard they are still a...

    Here it is! Only 3 stands! A little cable management is necessary, but otherwise, I'm pretty happy with it!

  23. Re: Gibraltar-SC-EA300-Ultra-Adjust-Flex Review

    How do you like using individual stands as opposed to the rack that came with the ekit? I'm toying with the idea of making the same switch to my DTX532 for portability. I can probably do it with the...
