    Ufip supernova

    B8 or B10 I would guess at but the Crashes are absolutely stunning.. A whole new flavour... If you love A customs (like I do) And with a sprinkle of 2oo2 these are the ticket.. I was so blown and fell in love with the 16" and 18" that were in the store. I ordered a 17" tho as I pairing it with...

    Paiste Dark Energy Set

    I have a mkll 21".. Every so often it comes out.. I tire of it as it's volume isn't suited to ever taking in band room.. But on my set on my own I love it.. The new 15" hats look interesting tho Gerry

    PST Rock

    PST8 Absolutely HATE them!!! Played a set in a rehearsal studio and I know well they are made for Rock but I was horrified at their sound. The crashes were 16" and 18" Rock models.. Two Gongs!!!! Harsh, bitter and a one dimensional "clang" sorry clang is too musical these are more like "clug"...

    New (to me) Classic Maple

    Yes it's a thick shell.. Definitely!!! It sounds great you could prob cover absolutely any style with these two Drums alone.. I have the Ludwig bug for sure I have made my mind up I'm not do keen on Gretsch snares.. And DW S are just too heavy and over designed for me.. Simple and unfussy is...

    I don't know when this is from . The Keystone badge is bigger on this drum than my newer Classic Maple and there are no gaskets.. The throw is super smooth..

    New (to me) Classic Maple

    I have no idea but it is as funky as hell!!! The extra two lugs seem to dry out the tone a tad .. Its not cranked . Bottom med/tight.. Top med.. It came with "pursesound" wires but I switched them out to DW truetone wires and ditched the plastic straps and went with Cord...

    Thoughts on 1st generation Yamaha stage customs

    I dont know about first generation, but I own latest bang up to date... I also owned a maple custom absolute and the stage customs are EVERY bit as good sounding.. they are birch, have retro shallow Tom's and they sing.. the 13x14" has only 6 lugs but it makes not one iota of a difference...

    Tell me why I should like brass.

    I only own one metal drum 402.. Brass as I said I just find kinda vanilla without raspberry sauce.. Where's my 402 is like chocolate but can be vanilla or even strawberry if I want it to be... Gerry
