Oooh! That red set looks pristine! I wasn't a fan of the resonator line though. I heard that most people removed the inner ply to make them sound good.
The black set is the line that my Junior High had, and was the first "pro" set I played. The mahogany set could be the ticket! Thanks!
I mean the lugs that Yamaha copied. :D I really like those concert tom lugs too though.
I had rented a Premier set a few times in the late 70s, and to this day, I can't get that incredible sound out of my head. It was so good. I'm guessing it was birch, I honestly don't know. It had the high...
I've been using Remo Clear Ambassadors since the late 70s and they have never been crystal clear. Their only crystal clear heads are the Clear Emperor, Clear Pinstripe/Powerstroke III, and No-collar snare side Amabassador.
Gee, I wonder if people like the music I like. Maybe I'm wrong and have been enjoying the wrong music. I had better search to see what others think of the music I like. After all, a stranger's opinion is way more valid than mine if it is on the Internet.
You're competing with people who have $$$$ gear and are willing to sell their services for peanuts. Some are even well known established pros with amazing credentials. I wouldn't waste your time.
Who were you hoping to target with a Tascam Portastudio?
