    Ebay Nightmare

    Ok, my package arrived at the seller's house, packed exactly as I got it. I never opened the box w/out the bass drum, and have vid doc of everything. Next step, get my $ back, stop buying kits! Yes I got another Ddrum Bubinga kit yesterday. The old stock wood, weather it be Tama, or Ddrum had...

    Very true. I guess right now I'm just stressing about my $. Knowing me, I'm sure I'll be looking there again. I guess once I get square, I'll see, but right now, I don't have access to that $. You guys are right. I'm just frustrated, as I'm sure anyone who's been through this has been

    Ebay Nightmare

    I forgot where I first read them? I spoke with a CSR, and she confirmed em, so I guess where I read them doesn't matter too much. Ebay isn't super ridged with dates for the seller. The con artist kept passing deadlines, or putting things off, while I did whatever was asked the day of. They just...

    I didn't want to mention names until my $ was in the bank. Hope you understand. Pleanty more when this is finished. Ebay rules for buyers, and how you can lose everything. Probably doesn't apply here, but for future refrences; Never use vulgarity Never threaten a score (blackmail) Never...

    Ebay Nightmare

    Yip, that's the posting. NOT Copper Sparkle, NOT a 22 inch bass. For now, I'll just say I was irritated. Like I said, I got lucky returning that kit. I ended up with a 6 peice, a nicer finish, more desirable sized toms, at a cheaper price....MIJ. I got what I was looking for, and more at a...

    Ebay Nightmare

    I try to find local 1st. If I can't find anything w/in a 2 1/2 hour drive, I'll hit Reverb, and Amazon. I got off FB years ago. I had a strange feeling, and although it has great advantages, especially for musicians, I felt it had too much on me. Now that my back is getting better, post spinal...

    Ebay Nightmare

    Ha....I'm glad it was my 1st, and last time. Figure 10% goes to Ebay, add shipping, and everyone is doing what they can to make a buck. I just dipped my toe in, and a snake bit it. This board has some good deals!

    They should be posted on the thread, if I didn't, I'll post em. I had told a few members I'd keep them posted. I'll have my refund on Thurs. I took vid of everything. From unpacking, to being extremely disappointed I was lied to, etc. When I originally posted the pic, a member knew of it, and...

    Great Ride Cymbal

    I'd normally recommend a 22, or 24 2002, but they will get washy on ya. I had a 20 K Dry, and that had great stick definition, great bell, and won't wash out on ya. Another ride that you might want to hear is the 22 inch Paiste Blue Bell Sig. Finally, if you can find one, is the 22 inch Paiste...

    Has the Drum Set Evolved to Include Too Many Toms?

    It seemed as if the OP wanted to debate a topic. Nothing wrong with that, except for those that disagree with me ;)

    Has the Drum Set Evolved to Include Too Many Toms?

    Yes sir! I was just responding to the title of the thread, and original post.

    Has the Drum Set Evolved to Include Too Many Toms?

    I agree it is a choice. I chose to carry the bare minimum I needed to play the gig. As for the evolution, there definitely has been one, especially for beginner drummers, and what era they began playing. I didn't have much money, and really didn't know any better. If like me, you began playing...

    Has the Drum Set Evolved to Include Too Many Toms?

    Evolution isn't a bad thing. It's just how it goes. The standard kit when I started playing was 13, 14, 16. Also around that time Peart's kit was what just about every rock drummer wanted, so it became much more common to see over the top sized kits. By the mid/late 90's the "fusion" kits...
