    Re: Picked up a new (to me) snare

    You should probably change out all the nails that hold the roof on your house, and all the bolts that hold your car together, and your refrigerator, dishwasher, and microwave while you are at...

    Re: Drum set for studio

    The MLX kit will do whatever you need---and they are my favorite sizes (except for the 10" toy)

    Re: OT --- Other Hobbies and Habits

    Drumming is my other hobby---I have been playing guitar for 40 years (on and off) and have no expectations of ever becoming a "drummer", but I can play well enough to enjoy it.

    Re: Sometimes the Gig Just Isn't Worth It

    I didn't intend any animosity---I'm sorry if I offended you. I am on at least a dozen different forums---guitars, drums, cars, trucks, and cooking to name a few---most of them require a probationary...

    Re: Anybody Here Running Pinstripe Batters ?

    My Mapex kit had pins on the toms when I bought it---they tuned up pretty good, and I never bothered to change them. These were 12,13,16 power toms---I wouldn't want a pin on a 10", but I liked them...

    Re: Slight issue with an upcoming gig

    I'm still wondering if the backline kit is going to be any good---seems like that would be much more important than a cowbell?

    Re: Slight issue with an upcoming gig

    I'm not sure how things work where you are, but around here a band that shows up only for their set, and leaves when they are finished playing are called Azzholes, and not invited back! If these...

    Re: Bass drum muffling

    I need to be able to move the drums around without worrying about the muffling shifting. I set these up on my back porch for jam nights, and stack them in my studio when I am not using them. The...

    Re: Bass drum muffling

    I have the batter at JAW plus about 1/4 to 1/2 turn, and the reso another 1/2 turn past that---no laundry inside---I love the sound out front, but I want to dial it back a bit without killing it...

    Bass drum muffling

    Anyone have experience with Remo Muff-L-Rings on bass drums? I have a 22x14 that is a little too boomy for my taste. I have a Black Suede PS3 batter, and a single ply Graphic reso (no port). I'm...

    This morning I made a few adjustments---tightened everything up---snare, hats, FT, and ride---and raised the FT/ride about 2" I like it so far!

    Re: Changed my set up

    I usually keep my floor tom a little lower than my snare on 5-piece setups so I can keep my ride at a comfortable height. I just set this kit up today for a back yard jam this weekend, and I am going...

    Cleaning and lubricating hardware on a regular basis should be a no-brainer, and snap-ring pliers should be a part of any drummer's tool kit. A can of WD-40 and an air compressor will keep you from...

    I don't like the way the pedal pulls down on the end of the shaft on the primary beater---as a machinist this was a deciding factor when I made the move to doubles, and why I ended up buying the...

    TH682 does not come with the stand---a $20 dog-bone clamp will mount it to any cymbal stand.
