    Craviotto or Noble & Cooley... Help me decide!

    I have had both. They are truly amazing works of craftsmanship. Got a beautiful standard finish maple Crav in 2006 (14x6.5). Fabulous drum. About 5 years ago I also found a NC 14x5 maple. It blew me away; it was the sound I was hunting for in maple. To be honest, both are superb. Recording...

    Mickey Curry

    Ok I'm a few years late to this.... I brought my first Yamaha RC kit in early 1994 and the rep happened to be in the shop in Aus. Adams was touring and I got a comp ticket - sitting behind the drummers shoulder. He was playing a double kick set up with three rack toms and two on the floor. I...

    Anything comparable to Ultraphones ?

    Bit late to this thread but I totally agree about the earbud/sealing thing being problematic. I'm onto custom plugs for on stage reduction of db. GK's are great - and look tough as nails. I had the VF but they broke during a session due to to weak design of the overhead strap.

    Thanks to everyone for chipping in. Perhaps my thread title was not right - hard to upgrade from the RC - rather it's a change of flavour I'm seeking and the maple/mahogany NC might turn out to be my new cornflakes! Think I'll hold off until I get to the US again early next year and go play up...
