My apologies if this is a much discussed issue, but I'm interested in hearing from those of you who have played both vintage and new Paiste 602 ride cymbals, particularly in acoustic/improvisational jazz situations. Are the new ones the same animal, better, not as good? Thank you.
I'm looking for these 3 snare drums:
Yamaha Elvin Jones model
Rogers COB Dynasonic, script logo, 5x14
Ludwig Supraphonic 5x14 B/O badge or earlier.
For trade, I have, currently:
22" Paiste Masters Dark crash/ride, never gigged
20" Paiste Masters Dark crash/ride, never gigged
I'm looking for the following sized Sonor Phonics in rosewood, rosewood inside and outside would be a plus, thanks!
bass drums, either 14x22 or 14x24
rack toms: 9x13, 10x14
floor tom: 16x16, maybe a 16x18
Please let me know what you have, and what bread you're asking, or if...
I'm considering taking the plunge but haven't bought a new drumset in ages. This seems about the same as buying a car in terms of price variations and dealerships.
Just wondering if there's a baseline and if one dealer does consistently better. Thanks!
Just wondering if those of you who have played these heads have an idea about what current heads are most similar. Does Ludwig make anything like this now?
I'm thinking that the closest thing (I know of) is a Remo coated Diplomat.
Anybody here have a solution to fitting a 7/8 tom post in a 1" hole?
I'd like to use my Gretsch toms on a 3-ply Ludwig bass drum, the Gretsch drums originally came with Pearl 7/8 tom brackets.
I've thought about ordering a 7/8 inside diameter--1" outside diameter bushing, but wondering if...
I recently bought a 1970 Ludwig set that came with a Spur-Lok hi hat stand (1123-1). I've been pleasantly surprised at how great it feels; now it's my main hi hat stand. Anyone else like using this stand?
