    Has the Drum Set Evolved to Include Too Many Toms?

    I agree it is a choice. I chose to carry the bare minimum I needed to play the gig. As for the evolution, there definitely has been one, especially for beginner drummers, and what era they began playing. I didn't have much money, and really didn't know any better. If like me, you began playing...

    Has the Drum Set Evolved to Include Too Many Toms?

    Evolution isn't a bad thing. It's just how it goes. The standard kit when I started playing was 13, 14, 16. Also around that time Peart's kit was what just about every rock drummer wanted, so it became much more common to see over the top sized kits. By the mid/late 90's the "fusion" kits...

    The 10 Biggest Jerk Drummers of All Time!

    I've met several pro drummers, and all have been extremely cool, besides Baker! They need the top 10 coolest drummers. I'd rather be positive, than negative. If I were to choose 1 drummer to chill with for a day, hands down Chad Smith. Just seems super cool. If I had 1 drummer to jam with for...

    Outdoor gigs in the Florida heat

    Cool N Texas? You get nasty heat, hail, tornadoes. Some of the best drummers up that way. A kit that can handle Denton, is bulletproof. Pearl makes some nice sounding, durable kits. I still practice on a mid level Maple Custom. It's been in a dank basement, flooded, and minimal problems. In...

    Outdoor gigs in the Florida heat

    Exactly! I did have some boom stands get funky on me, but the kit itself wasn't phases. What part of Texas? I've spent time in both Florida, and Texas. Dallas gets hotter temp wise, but Houston is like breathing polluted soup. I don't know how people lived there before AC? Florida is similar. I...

    Outdoor gigs in the Florida heat

    Did you guys all have cases for your hardware. Day shows in that heat, seriously will burn ya. I made that mistake once. It doesn't get hotter, or more humid than the Houston/Galveston area. The Gulf water will get in the 90's. I played with the same kit from 2003-2010. I didn't treat the...

    Outdoor gigs in the Florida heat

    I played a bunch of outdoor shows in S Texas (basically the same weather). Days can be brutal. I've played on floating stages (bars on docks). I was down there for years. I suggest packing your hardware too, as it will burn ya! Storms would roll in, boats would pull up, the kit I used, and still...

    Just so much lying, and dishonesty on so many levels. I'm not going to help a dishonest con artist make $. I really did want a MIJ Starclassic, and luckily I found a 6 piece gorgeous one, at a cheaper price. So I grabbed it, as no matter what happens with this jerk o$$, I'll get my $ back, keep...

    Floor Tom Legs with Memory Locks???

    As many mentioned, they're not needed. So many great drummers never had em. I've been play quite a while without em. Some people just don't like change, and that's cool. To each their own. I'm about 6'4, with long limbs. They're very helpful for me, especially the locks on the Tom's. The kits...

    No problem. Figure we can help each other when we can. Still haven't heard from the scammer. He now has 3 days, or he gets s#/+. Whatever you do, don't use threats, vulgarity, and especially threaten them with a bad rating. I still have to be quite with a few things, but soon, some more useful...

    Floor Tom Legs with Memory Locks???

    Exactly what I do. Same as the old style, just easier.

    Ebay Nightmare

    If it's the truth, are you slandering? If not, we could make a thread of what sellers are con artists. I mean I was assured I'll get my $ back, but I'm not going back to the PO, and risking an aggravating a spinal fusion. Now I look at it as I'm going to do this A$$ a favor. This guy never...

    Extreme Sympathetic Snare Buzz With Every Drum

    Yeah, I don't know the details of all that, but you can very well be correct. I've had this problem before, but it was never the mechanics of the snare. Snares will buzz like mad, when there's an octive, or a 4th interval, and it could be any combination of the heads. I was able to really...

    Ebay Nightmare

    I will. As some of you know, I recently had a spinal fusion, and it's been a struggle to say the least. So the seller sends me a USPS return slip at the last possible minute. I print 2 copies (one for each box). I go and buy a dolly, and today is the only day I can use my truck while the PO is...

    Extreme Sympathetic Snare Buzz With Every Drum

    Yes sir. I'm really impressed with all the help, and advice people give on this site. The new studio answer was good too, but who knows how much $ has been sunk.

    Yip, and I'm guessing you know the reason(s) why that works.

    I feel the "mojo" in the pic. As it sits in the boxes, not so much. The kit sounds great, I love the 17 depth, I just don't like dishonest people. I'd rather give it to someone who needs something to eat on the street Maybe buy a new friend a couple beers
