    Pearl experts - Masters Custom Maple Shell?

    I have a Yamaha MIJ 5000 16x18 floor tom which I've held onto after selling the rest of the set because I think it would be a great bass drum. Today in the Trading Musician a was tempted by 10" and 14" Pearl / Masters Custom / Maple Shell / serial number / Made in Taiwan, $200 for both. I...

    All in on Mandolin

    In guitar circles I find that I'm filling in higher pitched off beat patterns because that's what fits. It suddenly occurred to me that this is the quintessential role for the mandoiln, in bluegrass in particular. Having been a poor to mediocre guitarist for some time, the idea of something...

    Recommend bass drum trigger?/Anyone use a keyboard?

    I'm putting together a new integrated acoustic/electronic setup. I had been using my Roland Handsonic as a stand alone with BD and HH triggers and with my regular drum kit without the foot triggers. Using a bop kit, I'd like to put a trigger on the bass drum. I'll have the Handsonic to the left...

    melany-drums on ebay: my first order

    I'm going to add to this thread after each step. I will say that these folks are very easy to talk to. I asked if they would make 8' and 10" Sapele stave toms to go with my bop kit of the same construction. After a lot of back and forth they put up an ebay listing with my specs and I bought it...

    Everything you know is wrong

    I love starting with a Firesign Theater quote. So I received the Thomas Stave Drums Sapele stave bop kit and it sounds good. Using medium tuning the 14 x 18" bass drum has plenty of punch with the low end authority I want. The 8x12" rack sings at a little above medium but at medium it is the...

    Need help to identify drum logo

    I'm buying a bunch of lighting at an industrial auction place and they have a "lot" of drums. The silver ones are Tama and the logo on the maroon ones is driving me crazy. I know I've seen it before. I can't get closeups or better reso but someone will recognize the logo on the maroon bass drum...

    Building an Ayotte sound alike

    My friend Steve Ely has an early mint Ayotte wood hooped drum kit in his recording studio. I've played it a number of times and am particularly impressed with the full rich sound I get from the toms with brushes. I've always wondered if my Pork Pies would sound like that if I put wood hoops on...

    New (to me) kit - trying 15" floor tom

    For years I've favored 14" floor toms over 16". But, playing a 22" bass drum I keep yearning for a slightly lower pitch in the floor. Some combos, like my '65 Slingies, have a 22" BD and 14" FT that work for me. So I had been thinking of a 10, 12, 14, 20 kit. In addition I have way too many...

    Late to the party - Ming snare drum

    I was just cleared to play drums again after having my bicep tendon reattached to my radius bone. However, since I'm not allowed to pick up more than a pound I eschewed my normal twenty pound snare drum and grabbed the 6.5 x 14 Ming fiberglass snare I got from Geostorm98 a few months back. I put...

    Drumming after Bicep Distal Tightrope Fixation

    So, I ripped the tendon on the bottom of my bicep off the forearm bone and had it reattached 8/14 by the procedure in the title. Four more weeks in which I am prohibited from picking up anything heavier than a book. Has anyone had this procedure? If so how quickly were you able to resume...

    Snare drum ID, Premier???

    My eyes aren't what they used to be. I'm picking up a Craigslist chocolate interior Slingerland kit in 8 days after paypalling a 1/3 down. The snare drum lugs look sorta like Premier but seems to have ridges on the sides which would mean they're not. Somebody here will recognize it:

    Weird experience buying oddball Pork Pie bass drum

    I bought matching silver sparkle Pork Pie USA maple toms and was looking for a bass. I saw this one-off Pork Pie nesting bass drum. The seller was asking $400 plus shipping but had a make offer button. I contacted him telling him I was interested, but at a much lower price so I'd wait 'til he...
