what single zone pads do you use? You can upgrade an old PD100 pad to dual zone with a cheap kit. I did it to 3 pads and have been using them for years.
The kits are usually on ebay or vdrums with a little searching. This video describes it.
I have to agree. I didn't find it all that bad. And if I was engineering the song, I'd be happier if the drums lined up with the bass and guitars!
That said, I'm not always happy with how engineers have beatmapped my own parts. But sometimes it's welcome and I even do it to myself...
Those great crashes - I'd say the k darks were warm and sustainy. I don't know about the sweets but I love my Armand 18 crash, which I think is similar.
A crash/ride like a Kerope 19, a 20 crash of doom, a hand hammered agop - those would be warmer and washier IMO compared to the ones you list.
So I picked up one of these used. It came with all the parts. They give you two FT legs that are supposed to fit popular FT leg mounts (1/2" and 10.5mm). Unfortunately both my FT's use the slightly smaller 9.5mm legs. Any ideas how I could jerry rig a connection?
I have 4 13's now. Two Tempus, a Yami Mushai, and a custom keller drum. I once also owned a 13 craviotto.
I don't know about all those traits listed above. I simply like that it's a little smaller and I feel comfortable with that size. Soundwise I can get it close enough to 14's unless I...
Rototoms definitely don't have a lot of sustain.
But anyway, I guess what I'm seeing is that there is no science, lore or recent enlightenment showing an 8x12 is an odd sounding size :-)
It is strange though how much time (and money) I've spent wrestling getting my 12's to sound good, where...
Not sure I agree. Maybe you tune yours too tight. Mine are quiet enough. The bulk of the noise comes from the stands and foot pedals.
So I created a platform like this:
Anyway to the OP, if you have drums in the basement, why mot just get a good practice pad for the room upstairs...
Thx all. I've owned 6 sets in my lifetime with an 8x12, mostly out of habit.
But I've noticed, for the 4 kits I've owned that have alternate options of either a 9x13 or a 8x10, those drums have consistently been easier to tune and get a good ring (high or low) than the 8x12's. And the kits...
