I picked up an 18x8 Tempus kick years back, which sounds great, and I used it with some cheap mismatched toms for a while. I can fit kick and snare into one bag, plus a hardware bag and cymbal bag. I'm thinking of grabbing the Pearl Compact Traveler add-on toms, which would make this a pretty...
I can't imagine going back after getting a Sound Seat. I've got one in my piano/bass, and then a retrofit top on a really sturdy base, maybe a Pearl? I think maybe I'll pick up another one when I finally start playing out again so I don't have to grab the one from behind my home kit.
I don't think Ultraphones sound great, but that's the nature of a very closed headphone. (I don't care for 7506s personally either, but the Ultraphones are noticeably muddier.) Ultraphones are great for tracking, and miles ahead of my old EX-29 headphones, but I'd never sit and listen to music...
Has anybody tried both the GK Ultraphones and the Remote Audio HN-7506 isolation headphones? Both use the Sony 7506 drivers. I've had a pair of Ultraphones for many years and I was thinking about picking up another pair when I stumbled on the Remote Audios, which look a bit more robust (not that...
Wow, what a guy. I didn't know how generous he was, I just enjoyed his great wit.
I'm about to load up the drums for an afternoon gig. This one's for you, Bongo.
ETA: Is anyone interested putting together/contributing towards a tribute to BC, some way to "pay forward" his generosity? Maybe...
And that's just the beginning! We didn't adopt, so it started out cheaper for us (two for the price of one, even!), but every month when I look at the check we write out to the preschool, I think: "Wow, I could have been driving a really nice car. Or playing a lot of...
Great deal on a Spaun snare. (Not mine.) $125 with a PR bag? The parts alone are worth that! If I hadn't just used up my drum budget on an RME Babyface, I'd buy this one myself.
ETA: Forgot the link!
Yeah, I can appreciate that. I could probably deal with the coating issue if I preferred the sound or feel or Remos, but the OP didn't like the sound either ("unique kind of ring that I found annoying"). So to the OP: what's driving you back to Remo?
Why Remo? The coating on Aquarian heads is practically indestructible. It takes a couple hours for me to start wearing through the coating on an Ambassador. On an Aquarian Texture Coated . . . well, I'll let you know when that finally happens.
One pair left:
I was tempted, but I don't trust the isolation numbers. I'm putting aside the cash for a pair of GK Ultraphones. Still, this is a great price.
I think the crashes with holes sound interesting. I tried a few at the Bosphorus factory, and they seemed like a cross between a normal crash and a china. I wouldn't choose one as a primary crash, but I wouldn't mind having one (if I weren't so averse to lugging around extra cymbal stands).
I've got a house that needs painting so my wife will stop nagging me. I'd do it myself, but it's hot outside so I literally can't.
Would anyone be super cool and paint it for me? I'd be sooo grateful!!
You don't even need to paint the whole house. One or two sides would be a big help...
