    Poll: Re: Survey for Uni assessment

    Play a set of Mapex Saturns next to a plain maple kit and it's obvious that a little walnut completely changes the sound.

    I'm surprised about projection being an issue. I recently got a DWPS kit. My other kit is a set of Mapex Saturns. My wife walks around our neighborhood for exercise. I'm always asking her if...

    Re: Reducing snare ringing

    When I first started playing I wanted to get rid of that ring as well. I brought my snare to my drum teacher who played a traditional snare piece on it and he said, "what's wrong it sounds great"...

    I think it's safe to say that John influenced a lot of people and left a mark on the drumming world. If you feel there are other drummers who have done the same feel free to commemorate their...

    Re: Yamaha or Mapex kit?

    What kind of music do you like to play? I've owned Saturns and Stage Customs. In my opinion the Saturns are unique and the toms are thunderous. The kick is all attack, no mid range and a bit of...

  12. Re: Best snare you've ever "heard" (Links required!)

    "Heads and Shoulders" might be a little excessive, but the Gretsch snare seems to have so much more tone and less offensive overtones. I own 6 snares and the Black Beauty was my favorite and most...

    Quit worrying about it and just have fun. Most drummers you see that are middle aged and have been playing since they were 10. It takes time for your brain to grow those new synapses that allow you...

    I own a Ludwig Black Beauty and I agree it's a great snare. But the surprise for me was the snare that came with my Gretsch Brooklyn kit. It sounds phenominal. In my opinion it's head and...

    I think the only measure should be your level of commitment. Anyone who is committed to learning and playing should have as nice of a kit as they can reasonably afford.

    Re: Pearl Exports.

    I think exports are great for what they are. I think picking up a used set of exports for $200 is much better than going with a new ultra-low end kit.
