    Re: Opinion on Sonor drums ?

    I have owned some of their cheaper/mid-range lines (Force series, 2003, 3005, 3007, Essential Force), and sadly came to the conclusion that the hardware on the drums was just a bit too "weird" for my...

    Re: Opinion on Pearl Drums?.

    Couldn't stand Pearl back when I started playing drums in '92. Didn't care one bit for their tomholders, the name itself and just the overall look and feel of them. I was a die-hard Tama (and...

    Re: Kit you've had the longest?

    I think it's a tie between the kit I have now, a Pearl Masters BCX, bought new in 2015 and a Tama Starclassic Performer B/B kit I bought in 2008 and had up until 2012. Usually I've been having a...
  4. Re: What drum kits have you had over your drumming career?

    Thought I'd chime in here, as I too have this thing called GAS, almost since I started out drumming (about 22 years ago), I'm soon to be 31. So, this is my list...

  8. Re: Anyone on here ever own a set of Tama Rockstars?

    Had a black Rockstar doublebass kit which I bought new in 2004, sold it in 2006. Didn't gig with them at the time, just practiced with them. Great solid kit (mine had the Starcast mounts), sounded...
  9. Re: Your kit, Your sound, Your "best sounding kit"

    I can't really say what kit that sounded "best" out of the ones I've owned, in my opinion I'm pretty satisfied with most of the kits I've had so far. At the moment, I'm really digging my Mapex Saturn...

    Re: Ever quit a band? if so what was method?

    I think I've quit 3 bands during my time as a drummer, and some other bands have basicly dissolved themselves with "everyone" calling it quits at the same time. I'm proud to say I've never been...

    Re: Lars Ulrich

    I respect Lars for what he did back in the day (80's), he was sort of a visionary back then in starting up that whole new thrash genre (yes I know, other bands was also doing it, but Metallica was...

    Re: KHS(Mapex) just acquired Hohner inc USA

    Nice to see both of my kits are now in the same family :). Allthough it didn't come as a huge shock to me, Mapex has been making Sonor Force drums for quite a while, as said. They also share a lot of...

    Re: music you don't like anymore

    For me it's a lot of the pop-punk bands that came out in the 90's, as well as the nu-metal ones. Growing up in that time, I liked them for "bringing back" harder music to the top of the charts, but...
  15. Re: Anyone have a favorite drum set that's no longer available?

    For me it would be either:

    Premier Signia - always loved the way they look, even though it's a bit much hardware on the shells. They sound awesome, and especially after checking out the Opeth -...

  17. Re: Best and worst backline drums you've ever had to play!

    Best experience is hard to tell, as I've usually had way better kits myself than the ones provided at a gig. It's a tossup of a nicely tuned Tama Superstar (newer type), a Premier Genista or a Yamaha...
