    Sticky: Re: Post Your Bird's-Eye View/Driver's Seat Kit Pics!!

    Yep. It pushes the hihat too far to the left for me, too. I normally play one up, two down, so I don't know if I can deal with this arrangement or not. Certainly NOT on gigs!

  2. Re: Pearl Fiberglass: 1976 Peter Criss Alive! Drums (KISS)

    What self-respecting drummer would be seen with anything less than a thirteen-piece kit in a mirror finish?

    I went to single tom/bd heads in the 1970s, too. I HAD to! I couldn't afford to buy new...

    Re: Yamaha Anyone?

    Sure would be a lot of help if you posted pics of all the gear, and at least a starting price to negotiate from. Good luck, buddy. Yamaha always sells well - for good reasons.

    Those kind of breakages simply happen with bronze. That particular cymbal may have been made from a faulty batch of metal, or lathed incorrectly, or . . . or . . . the possibilities are endless. But...

    Re: Crush Sublime Birch

    I say again: TODAY is the pinnacle in the drum price/quality equation. That Crush kit is gorgeous and righteously built with quality components throughout. I love the color, too.

    Well, there 'ya go. You know exactly what I'm talking about.

    Actually, I wish I'd learned to play both ways - up and down - but I didn't. And at age 65, I've no inclination to learn it now.
