    Re: Resonance vs. Sustain

    You can get a big decrease in resonance but a slightly shorter sustain with thicker drum shells.

    Re: New Paiste Alpha Brilliant finish (pic)

    I have had my eyes on the Alpha's for a while. I saw all the leaked pictures of them a while before they put them on the official site. GC and MF don't have them listed so I'm wondering when they...

    Re: Mandatory Listening for drummers?

    I'd recommend Dave Lombardo, because he mixes in other drumming styles (especially jazz) with his fast thrash metal playing. Check out Slayer's last two albums if you want to hear a good variety of...

    Re: Drum Specs

    The best thing to do is go experience one for yourself. One of the things I love about bubinga is that you can really "feel" it if you tune it right.

    Dave Lombardo of SLAYER is a perfect example of this. Listen to some of his stuff and you'll see what I mean, especially his fills.

    Re: Drum Specs

    He's got a pretty wide port on his bass. Also I don't think he's got it miced up, and it sounds like it's all tuned high.

    Really?

    Bubinga sounds really rich and Walnut sounds dry to me, and all the sources I've come across.

    Re: Drum Specs

    Yeah, that's true. Walnut does have more low end than maple. I wasn't trying to say Walnut isn't low pitch, I was saying that it isn't as low as Bubinga or African Mahogany.

    Re: Drum Specs

    I tried out a Ddrum Dios Walnut set and a Tama Starclassic Bubinga set at Guitar Center. I also checked out a Tama Starclassic B/B at Sam Ash.

    Re: Drum Specs

    Are you referring to Black Walnut? It's got less highs than maple but I wouldn't consider it near as low pitch as Bubinga or Mahogany.

    Anyways I wanted to clarify why I think harder woods tend to...

    Re: Drum Specs

    The lowest pitch drum woods I know of are Mahogany with a hardness of 830 lbs and Bubinga at 1980 lbs. I may be wrong about this, but from checking out all these woods it seems like the hardness...

    According to everywhere I've looked, bubinga projects more than birch. Bubinga has a hardness of 1980 lbs while birch has a hardness of 1260 lbs. The hardness doesn't necessarily determine the...

    I've been focusing on the drumming aspect of drums rather than the equipment aspect lately. I'm onto this idea that if you wanted four rack toms and two floor toms, the ideal set would increase...

    What exactly do you want it to sound like? If you want a good all-round kick go for a 22"x16".

    Re: Bass drum sizes?

    I agree with most of this. Greater depth only has more volume potential if you have enough force on it. If you play heel down lightly with an axis pedal, a 20"x18" is going to have less presence than...

    I would think a light beater and a direct drive pedal such as a Pearl Demon Drive or Axis would be ideal because of their speed. Double chain drives deliver more volume and punch but it wouldn't be...

    Re: Lowering Sound Production

    Here is an easy way to quiet down the drums. Just buy thicker heads. Use Remo pinstripes or Evans hydraulic as the tom batters AND resonants. Use the thickest snare heads you can find. Buy some Wuhan...

    Re: Agazarian cymbals.

    It's true, Agazarian is Wuhan. A bunch of reliable employees at GC have told me. I bought the 10" splash today, I love it. It sounds like a mix between a splash and a china.
