    Re: Count me in (Netflix)

    I thought it was pretty good, but may be a little long-winded. They probably could’ve knocked about 20 minutes off of it.

  4. Re: It's happening! My Dream Kit arrives in 36 Hours

    That’s a nice looking kit. I’m surprised nobody has mentioned the copper hardware on the Ludwig snare.

    Did you get the hardware platted, or was that something Ludwig made?

    Re: Drum Badges

    It’s really interesting how the aesthetics of a drum badge can really make or break how I feel about a kit. Personally, I really do not like the newer Mapex badges. Great sounding drums, but that...

    Not sure about the snare bed, but you shouldn’t have a problem transferring the snare wires over.

    Re: Kit you've had the longest?

    I bought my Tama Artstar ES kit with my own money in 94, when I was 14. I actually saved up for it by having a paper route.

    The only thing I don’t like is the power-tom sizing, but I’ve worked...

    Re: Snare & Practice Pad Stands

    There really isn’t a “best” stand out there. I’m partial to Pearl hardware, but it’s really not any better than anything else made by the major brands.

    The most heavy duty snare stand I’ve seen...

    Re: Snare & Practice Pad Stands

    Any stand from of the major drum companies should work well for you.

    Are you looking for a taller, concert style stand, or a lower drum set style stand?

    I’m sitting on 11 right now. I do swap them out pretty frequently. I like to play with the tunings and trying different head and wire combinations.

    Re: Frustrated Yamaha Live Custom owner

    I finally looked up the price difference between the kits. Similar 4 piece shell packs are $1400 more!?!?!?

    $1400 for a ply of plastic and weights in the bass drum. I get the r&d involved, but...

    Wow. Just wow.

    That’s one of the better looking kits I’ve seen in a while. Love the gold hardware with that finish.

    ^^^^ those red accents gaskets look amazing on the black finish. That must have been a Europe only option. I never saw that in the states.

    Oh man. I remember Skins N Tins. I used to live pretty close to there. What a great independent drum shop. I bought a couple cymbals and a ton of accessories there back in high school. 20+ years ago....

    Re: Putting Holes in Cymbals?

    I only paid $80 for the cymbal, so I won’t be too upset if it doesn’t work out. Seeing how a new one sells for $280, I can’t go that wrong with it if it all works out.

    I’m thinking about doing something like this too, but I’m debating on the hole size and pattern. I have an “extra” A custom 18” crash that doesn’t get much use.

    Was it a left handed drill bit to pull out the broken bolt? Or did you just drill and tap a new hole?

    That’s pretty cool. No idea what year it is, but it may be worth reaching out to Yamaha directly. They may be able to assist.

    Have you pulled the heads off? Is there and delamination of the plys?

    I’m wondering if someone will pick up the name and try to revive the brand. There is a long history, and a lot of famous drummers that played Slingerland, but that was a long time ago.
