    Re: Looking at upgrading double pedals

    Boy I'd like to test fly a set of MDDs!!! I learned on Speed Kings in the mid 60s. I exclusively buried the beater in those days and the direct drives were superb for that technique.

    Well we'll be sorry to see you go MDK!
    You may not want to read my take on your dilemma. HA!
    I'm the opposite to you in that I moved NORTH when I retired in '17. From near Keene to Columbia up near...

    Re: This is perseverance!

    Many of us went through that period of drum dreams. In my case it was sending for, or going to Hermie's Music in Scenectady, NY to get Ludwig, Rogers, and maybe Slingerland catalogs. I lived in those...

    Sticky: Re: PDP Drums Discussion

    Why the pitch bend on the twelve? Is that your "go to" or preference?
  12. 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.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.
