    I guess the big designation letters being different doesn't bother you.
  2. Re: Use of having a crash-ride cymbal and a ride cymbal?

    My very 1st cymbal was and is a Zildjian 18" crash ride. While it's true it's not the best at either it has the sweetest richest bell I've ever heard. It's permanantly parked about 6" above and...

    Re: Reasons to Hug a Drummer?

    I played at my 50th high school reunion about a month ago, not exactly Oct. 10th, but the drummer definitely got more than his share of wonderfully fulfilling hugs.

    Choking doesn't really equate to detuning in my drum terminology lexicon.

    Are those extra bass drum hoops leaning bubble wrapped against the sofa? Different finish? Or?

    Re: My unpopular opinion of Ozone crashes

    I have a Zildjian 14" Custom EFX that I love. What I love about it is the quick decay which is what the holes impart. It makes for a nice little exclamation mark!

    I would also recommend dogboning off a stand as opposed to the hoop clamp just because you may do some wailing on that sucker and that may fatigue the hoop over time.

    Really??? A choked bass drum? From a hoop clamp?
  9. Re: Smaller Tom sounding deeper than bigger Tom

    When you say "deeper" do you mean lower in fundamental pitch, or richer in tone? The only way I can imagine the 12" tom being higher in pitch than the 10" tom is if the 10" is tensioned low and the...

    IMO you should have lost the logo on the BD head. It clutters up an otherwise really cool design!

    It seems the only option left is to take up the flute... ask her if that's OK.

    Re: Tama SLP G-Maple snare unmatched

    As alluded to by Ricardo, it's my guess that what draws you to the G maple Tama is the 13" size more than anything else.. As you decrease snare diameter you increase the pop & snap crispness and...

    I don't care about logos. They get polished off anyway. (Oh the horror...right?) It's the sound I care about and no two cymbals sound alike. When I find a cymbal that I like I'm not willing to hunt...

    I have a mix of Zildjian and Sabian. Slightly weighted toward Zildjian in quantity just because they've been around since I started in the mid 60s.
