    Re: OT: RIP Chick Corea

    Saw RTF with both Alphonse and Lenny. I think I slightly preferred Lenny, but not by much!

    Re: Cymbol set up

    I like at least one cymbal with rivets to mask and or compliment my brand of tinnitus!

    Sticky: Re: PDP Drums Discussion

    Why the pitch bend on the twelve? Is that your "go to" or preference?
  4. Re: My son's drum heads continue to tear on his new kit?

    I'd agree that wrong, as in too steep, stick angle is the most usual suspect. That and poor quality heads as stated. I suppose you could run your finger around the bearing edge, the rim of the drum...

    Re: Favorite or preferred snare

    I currently play a dw Edge. It's a 14" X 5". It's just about a perfect snare in my opinion. Metal edges with a maple shell. I once had a Supraphonic and it was hard to find fault with that one either.

    Re: Got Copper?

    Too bad about the tension rod splay. Good thing those receivers float! Beautiful metal though.

    Re: Upside down China with rivets

    I've got an old 20" Zildjian "Pang" cymbal I bought in the mid 70s. It's interesting but doesn't get much use anymore. I am planning to install rivets and will orient them for "upside down" playing...

    Re: Building a Drum Room

    Be careful how many panels you install. Start by not buying too many. It's easy to deaden a room too much. My basement studio has large expanses of poured concrete walls covered with three layers of...

    Re: Snuck this home... PDP Classics

    Yes I was fond of frequently activating that acrylic 18". My Collectors 16" X 14", however, delivers all the thunder I need.

    Re: Snuck this home... PDP Classics

    What's your take on the 18" FT and especially the wooden hoops? I have an 18 in my fibes kit and always loved it. Rumbly but dramatic.
    I do a lot of rim shots even on toms to a degree... I'd be...

    You may need an auxiliary snare storage area elsewhere with but a small rack holding the current "rotation" inside the room.

    That flick was so over the top it's ridicules. The playing was good but the premise that anyone would or could behave the way J. K. portrayed the teacher is a bit much.

    My main crashes are 16" and 18". A 14" Zildjian Effects holy/slotted one, a 16" China Boy High and three splashes sprinkled about the set. Yeah, I like 'em short and sweet. A smack in the kisser. I...

    I guess they believe in FINE tuning. Or maybe their hoops are incredibly flexible.

    You see no value in being able to switch heads in about 27 seconds... all tuned and ready to play? I don't need one but it's a cool idea.
