    Armand Zildjian Ltd. Ed. Vintage A Ride — Memphis Drum Shop

    Yep, nothing wrong for the collector. But they’re meant to be played. I’ve been through buying and selling vintage As and landed on a set of As that I like a lot. I often will mix one with some modern Zildjians.

    Anyone play a Yamaha Absolute Hybrid Maple drum set?

    In my experience, I’ve never had anyone say the drums aren’t loud enough or don’t project enough. I think you’re right though, most likely splitting hairs among two of the best well made instruments…

    Anyone play a Yamaha Absolute Hybrid Maple drum set?

    I know some members own the new Yamaha maples. I still own a Yamaha maple absolute and am keeping them. I’d feel comfortable buying the new AHM. At the same time, I can’t imagine them being any better than the Tama Starclassic maple to be honest. My gut is that you can’t wrong with either. I...

    Armand Zildjian Ltd. Ed. Vintage A Ride — Memphis Drum Shop

    For collectors, the vault pies are cool. I like the vintage As on eBay since I’m not rich. Never know who played them. ;) there are so many beautiful As out in the wild.

    60s Ludwig Downbeat Re-wrap Decision

    Tough call, but my vote would be WMP, if the wrap looks good.

    14, 16, 18 FT…all have their place. I have some of each. The 18 FT is a pain to carry around, but it’s nice for a big sound.

    The merits of multiple snare drums

    To add onto the discussion, for me, it boils down to two basic sounds. One crisp and responsive snare. Another lower and perhaps muffled sound. Realistically, those two sounds are what I want.

    I don't own a metal snare. Should I?

    Your Johnny C snare is an amazing drum. I have one too. But a metal might be a nice addition. I’d stick with something classic like a brass or aluminum. Probably a 5”.

    The merits of multiple snare drums

    I think if one wanted a variety, you could have two Ludwig top shelf metal drums in different sizes. Those are flexible. Then a 6.5 high quality maple…Craviotto…otherwise a stock DW Collectors maple would by my choice for a ply shell. Those are well made. Then if you want to get crazy, a few...

    The merits of multiple snare drums

    I have too many and could probably live with two.

    Zak Starkey on Who Tour - Pads for Cymbals

    Agree about the V drums. Frankly, half the point of that band is that great raw drum sound. I played V drums for awhile at a church, and eventually, they came around to using real drums. Made all the difference. I will never ever play another gig using electric drums. (I don’t have to). We...
