    Re: Building a New Set

    Exactly.....that is why I'm going with this bass.
    Like I said....I think I can make it sound good.
    The roto toms I bought are the older chrome frames.....it will all look good together.

    Re: Building a New Set

    It took a long time, but I have "settled" on a bass drum choice.
    (I assume I can make any decent bass drum sound pretty good....usually isn't as difficult as the other drums in your set).

    Student Model Snare Drums

    In the early 60s, I began to look at and collect annual drum/percussion catalogs from Ludwig and Slingerland.

    I received the Weiss 12/14 set of roto-toms and the reviews are accurate.
    These frames are similar to the Remo black frames and the bolts are just as good too.

    Re: Building a New Set

    The look is important with this idea.
    The bass needs to be chrome or silver sparkle.....with a snare to match.
    I would also add a chrome reso head to the bass drum.

    Such silliness.

    Re: What genre of music do you play.

    Classic rock.....
    I prefer "prog" but my bandmates hate the time it takes to work up a prog song.
    Far too technical to put together quickly.
