    Need a recommendation please.

    Hi all,

    About 2 years ago I was forced to sell my acoustic set. /cry

    I want to get back into drumming, but need to go electronic this time. I have somewhere around $1,000ish to spend and really...

    Re: Please help - e-drums newbie

    Headphones will work just fine initially. I'll keep the amp you talked about in mind too.

    Still got a few months to save and plan. Just decided that if I rush it and go cheap with an old model,...

    Re: Please help - e-drums newbie

    I have a throne already. Can I use any bass pedal or does it need to be special for an e-set?

    Got to get the amp, because I don't think my guitar amp will work. Have good headphones if nothing...

    Re: Please help - e-drums newbie

    I've decided to wait until March (my b-day) and if my budget is a little better, I'm going for the Roland TD-9S V-Tour set.

    MF has it for $1,300, so perhaps I'll see a sale or slight discount by...
  5. Re: Starting to break down 1st song - need advice

    Yeah, I've been doing it be ear to break down the song. I just need a good way to write it down as I'll forget at first.

    What I did first was to figure out the basic groove and then play that...

    Re: Please help - e-drums newbie

    Yeah, I've been looking at used TD-6 models and think that with a little luck and a few extra bones, I can swing one.

    Roland seems to be the way to go for the mesh heads and stuff.

    Still...

    Re: Please help - e-drums newbie

    I started looking at older Roland models because of this mesh head thing (even though people say Yamaha has better sounds).

    My question is this. Let's say I get an older Roland TD-3 or something....

    Please help - e-drums newbie

    Ok, I think I need to get an e-set for the house for several reasons. But I have absolutely no clue. Don't know what to buy, upgrade, etc.

    Right now, I'm considering doing a little jamming in a month since I host church worship practice in my home once per...

    Re: supporting your habit.

    Best thing I did income wise was to, through years of work, train my wife not to expect the world.

    Went from dropping 1000s in my 20s on her to dropping a $20 bill here and there in my 30s. Can't...

    Re: Sabian AAX cymbals

    I started listening to the AAX line this week and really decided to upgrade my hats to the Sabian AAX X-celerators. Very nice.

    The rides sound nice too. It's a good line all around.

    Re: Who here uses Paiste PST 5's?

    Ok cool. This 502 16" thin crash I have sounds great and the price was just right. :)

    My PST 5 hats will last until I score a good deal on some Paiste sig sound edges. And that 502 sounds good...

    Re: Who here uses Paiste PST 5's?

    I have the PST 5 14" hats. They sound pretty good. For a little more, I like the Alpha's better though.

    My 16" thin crash is a 502. Someone told me it's what the PS5's are now, but not sure. I...

    Re: Paiste Alphas or Paiste Signatures?

    hahaah the ending of your video was the best. :)

    I'm also shooting for Paiste sig sound edge, but I'm going for 13s (don't play metal). Not sure if it fits, but I believe there's a 15" as well.

    Re: Paiste Alphas or Paiste Signatures?

    Since you don't have cash flow going, I'd hit the Alphas. They are nice and you can get used ones fairly cheap sometimes.

    The sigs are great, but you'd be waiting probably 3-4x longer for em.

    Re: Wow...I actually won

    Ah, ok. Yeah, I caught a YouTube video yesterday (maybe sponsored by Evans or something) and it talked about A on the sanre's reso, so that's what I did as a starting point. Nice to know it was...

    Yes, and until you go get your ears fixed, we'll have to live with it. hahaha :)

    Just kidding of course.

    Actually, some people prefer the Sabian B8 HH over some higher end stuff. It's all about...

    Congrats! That's awesome.

    And what's this tuning down you speak of? I just changed the reso on my snare last night to the Evans Hazy 300. My 1st ever drum head change. It's tuned up a bit (I think...

    Re: What cymbals to buy

    Best thing you can do is hit up your local music shop and spend time playing with cymbals. Find your sound.

    Otherwise, you'll have 1,001 opinions and all of them could be wrong for what you're...
  24. Re: how come the price of the Paiste Alphas makes people think they aren't that good?

    I agree with that. I said I like them more and Zeta said the XS20s were better. It's all about your desired sound.

    Also, I've found (in my limited drumming experience) that comparing lines is bad...
  25. Re: how come the price of the Paiste Alphas makes people think they aren't that good?

    I think another issue is a lot of people not knowing much about Paiste.

    The Alpha series is their semi-professional series (read: intermediate). And they sound good, but not as good as say the...
