    Powerstroke 3 or 4 for a 26" bass drum

    ....or do you mean that the added ply which is the difference between the two alternatives will not give me the same result as a felt strip.

    Powerstroke 3 or 4 for a 26" bass drum

    But the 2-ply in this case is also muffled with an inlay ring. Or do you mean that a felt strip is not the same as using a inlay ring? Because that is also interesting to discuss.

    Powerstroke 3 or 4 for a 26" bass drum

    Here you can find very cool sound clips of different drums. https://unleasheddrumstudio.com/gear Listen to the bass drum called "The Judge" (1930’s Ludwig & Ludwig Maple 14″ x 26″). This is the sound I am after. I love the fooomp kind of sound and still it is not extremely boomy. Compare it to...

    Powerstroke 3 or 4 for a 26" bass drum

    I fully agree and that was exactly my point. A lot of us use a PS3 with additional muffling but Remo actually gives us just that with the PS4. But as I said, very few seem to use them. The more we talk about it the more curious I get :D

    Powerstroke 3 or 4 for a 26" bass drum

    Yes, a long time ago I used clear pinstripe as batter. What actually makes me want to try the PS4 is the fact that today I am using felt strips on my PS3.....and that drum is only a 24". Now I am going up in size to a 26" and the coated PS4 doesn't sound dead on the official Remo sound clip. I...

    Powerstroke 3 or 4 for a 26" bass drum

    A lot of interesting thoughts here, and please keep them coming :) .....especially if you have any experience with the PS4. The bass drum comes with a clear PS3 batter and Ludwig single ply reso. Right now I am thinking of buying a coated PS4. This way I can try out the different combinations...

    Powerstroke 3 or 4 for a 26" bass drum

    While I am still waiting for my new Ludwig kit to arrive I am thinking on which bass drum head to use. My current bass drum is a 90's Pearl MLX 16x24. Right now I use Remo PS3 both for batter and reso together with a felt strip on both heads. I have a small 4" hole in the reso and a small...

    Any Pearl drums enthusiasts? What’s your opinion on Pearl?

    There is a lot of drum brand psychology in this thread :D I was smiling a lot because I recognize myself in a lot of your stories. ….and sometimes it is just reversed. My first set was a mixed set (Premier, Pearl, TAMA, Maxwin) but that set does not count. For my first real purchase there was...

    New Ludwig classic maple bearing edges

    Now I have payed the deposit so the order is complete!! :p Got a small symbolic discount but I still think it is insanely expensive. I just need to forget the amount.....until it's time to pay the rest.

    New Ludwig classic maple bearing edges

    Arghhhhh, I got the final quote and now I hesitate again. The already very high Swedish prices for American drums are getting even higher with these edges. But not only with $50 but rather $100. For me that means that I land on approx $5000 in total :oops: Either Ludwig has raised the prices...

    That's true. At least double 45 will be quite easy, putting the apex in the center.

    New Ludwig classic maple bearing edges

    Today I finally made up my mind and ordered the set....with full round over on all drums. Thank you all for your input, it was most appreciated. I also got in touch with another forum member who had first hand information on how a classic maple sound with full round over (baseball bat)...

    New Ludwig classic maple bearing edges

    Overall a very nice sounding kit. I really liked the 16" floor tom. I like the bass drum also especially when played harder in the louder parts. Is it you playing?
