    Re: Stick bag frustrations....

    This Meinl bag is really well made and goes for 20 bucks surprisingly. I toss mine around and am not careful with it and it's held up very well.

  4. Re: Yamaha Stage Custom vs Live Custom--worth upgrading?

    That depends on the price of upgrade I think. The oak drums will likely sound better, but by how much?

    Re: Just finished wrapping a "new" kit.

    So is Bum Wrap the smart way to go for this? I have done some investigation, and that was my conclusion, but I've never done this myself. I'm liking that "no glue" option as well...

    Re: Fixing out of round brass snare - HELP!

    Crap - I'm sure I replied to everyone, but it seems to be gone and I can't remember everything I said.

    Agreed. I do like the sound of new Kevlar heads over the Powerstoke plastic ones with a full line of players, even though plastic sounds great for solo stuff. Sadly, most band directors can't tell...

    I lived in Columbus for 5 years, and I've been going to the shop once every three months since I moved away 10 years ago, so I'm familiar with how well those guys treat their customers. I've...

    The shell. It's a clear acrylic kit, so no lacquer. It's just the start of a small spiderweb crack, maybe 1/8 of an inch around radiating from the floor tom leg mount holes.

    Marching snares don't have to sound choked, but most people tune them that way, probably without realizing it. The natural tendency with Kevlar heads and modern drums is to crank them really high all...

    Re: Wish I still had it

    I had a Yamaha Recording Custom 10/12/14/18. I sold it because I hated the color (teal). I ended up with a nice Beech Custom, then sold that for a new Catalina Maple. I wish I had both of those back.
