Gary Posey of Summit Drums has been sending me some progress pics of the Steambent Curly Maple Travel kit that I have commissioned him to make for me . I thought I would share some of the pics .
First set of pics is just after the shells were bent and reinforcing rings added . No...
So as the title says . What is your favourite kit that you currently own now . Not in the past but currently . Mine is the pictured Noble and Cooley CD Maple in my favourite Honey Maple gloss lacquer . I love these drums ! My favourite configuration 20 x 14 ; 12 x 8 and 14 x 14
I see very little about GMS drums these days compared to the past . Are they still in business ? I was always a fan of GMS (along with N&C) . They made some of the nicest lacquer finishes I have ever seen and their drums sound fantastic .
I am looking for any of the following cymbals , let me know if you have one you are willing to part with :
17” or 18” Paiste Traditional thin crash
20”Paiste Signature Mellow ride
20” Paiste Traditional Medium Heavy ride
20” Paiste Traditional Medium Light Swish
Noble and Cooley just introduced a very limited series of steambent Sassafras snare drums . 3 of each size . My local shop Drummer’s Hangout (Murat’s shop) got in a 5” model . 5” being my preferred snare drum size and it being a limited N&C snare got my GAS flowing and I bought it today . It...
I know we have a ton of Ludwig fans on this forum . I have a question for forum members . If Ringo had used another finish other than OBP would you still desire a kit in that finish ?
do you think it would even still be in the Ludwig catalogue of finishes ?
I have been finding more and more threads from people coming on the various forums to complain about some issue with service or equipment from a dealer or manufacturer . Now this baffles me to be honest . If I have an issue , I deal with it myself . I don’t need validation for forum members that...

Has Pearl lost their way ? In the 80’s and 90’s Pearl was all over the place . The Masterworks were out and getting lots of press . The Masters line was the new thing - thin maple shells and birch shells .
Lately I just don’t see lot from Pearl , it seems since the fiasco with the e-Pro alive...

Ok Vintage fans - what vintage drum manufacturer in your opinion has the best build quality and why ?
Bound quality would include , shells , lugs , hoops and finishes . Let’s not include Tom mounts in this instance .
So what is your choice ?
How many rivets do you prefer having in a cymbal ? For a long time I was a fan of the three rivets cluster . Now One or two rivets at most for me . I prefer the sound of the rivets to be more subtle so it doesn’t overpower the stick definition too much .
