    Re: Mij kit transformation

    I probably have everything you’re missing...rims, lugs, etc.. those are probably standard stencil kit Pearl Style lugs. If you want to PM me what you need, I can dig through my massive stash of old...
  3. Re: When the universe speaks , I listen. Could it just be bad luck?

    Sorry for your accident, but it’s awesome that you’re recovering!

    Good thing you’re a drummer. A fall like that would have killed a Lead guitar player.

    Re: Premier Resonator- wood or metal hoops?

    They definitely have a purple color when looking at them up close. From 3-4 feet away, they just look black. The finish quality is fantastic. I’ve yet to find another set of drums that are built as...

    Re: Premier Resonator- wood or metal hoops?

    Those old Premiers are some of the best made drums in terms of material and craftsmanship. I have a set of XPK’s that I restored a few years ago. I don’t know what the finish is for sure....but I...

    Re: Premier Resonator- wood or metal hoops?

    I’m 99% sure they would have been wood originally.
    Wood hoops will definitely make a difference in sound..at least Acoustically from behind the kit or up close. If you’re playing live in a band,...

    Not much really. It helps seal the wood to protect it from moisture. Since we play outdoor gigs, it’s an added precaution. I’ve had my drums rained on before. Plus, when we play outside gigs in high...

    Well, they arrived today.
    They are sweeeeet! I would say the quality of the hardware and shells is even better than the last Concept Maple kit I had. The 12” tom did indeed come with a suspension...

    Yep...satin olive. For some bizarre reason, that color really turns my crank, LOL.
    I guess because it’s different and stands out.

    Re: Concert toms

    They were all over eBay about 5 years ago. They weren’t that desirable, and I bought quite a few late 60s 3ply Ludwig concert toms for very little money. Guess I’m glad I did!

    Re: Crazy Places You've Practiced Drums

    Unfortunately, I’d have to say an empty bar. But at least it was a paid practice.

    Empty used car lot?
    How does that come about?
    You just pull up, set up and start jamming?

    Re: Which compact Drumset?

    If you’re still wanting to stay with a small kick, you might try a kit with a 16” kick. Like the Safari or Breakbeats. I have a home-made Kit with a converted 16”FT for a kick. Not much “rumble”, but...
