i have a great sound out of mine. i found that a lot of folks dont keep their stuff as clean as i do. my buddy has pearl cymbals just like mine and they sound terrible! i dont know if i have a good set of them or lucky.

I know!I hate dust soooo much,I can never ever keep mine clean,does anyone no anyways to keep it clean with out covering it?

i think covering them is the only way to keep them dust free, and even that doesn't always work. i bought one of the cloths ppl use for cleaning guitars because i have to clean mine everyday too. just can't stand to see any dust on them.

I thought my Pearl Cymbal was excellent, until I played along it side my Sabian Pro Sonix. They don't even compare, the Sabians win by miles.

Put 2 holes in your bass head. Get some cool chrome rings for them too!

I find those Swiffers the best way. It is a magnet itself.

Have u done those holes yet? if not, put 2 holes with chrome rings (they are called holtz rings i think http://www.midwestpercussion.com sells them) the proper measure for a 22" bass drum is a 6" hole. hope i helped...

Pearl Cymbals, the ever perplexing issue, my Final comment: Pearls can help beginners when they first buy a kit but after a while they become good for rehersals and thats about it

Well. Holes / Holz. I don't think that it has a "t".

buy a Holz to whatever size u want , and follow instructions .

OR !! take off reso head, get a circular solid object ( bowl or similar ) lay the head on a flat surface, and cut around the bowl with a VERY sharp knife, and take your time !!! i did it with no problem at all. when u tension the head after doing this u get a nice tight clean hole :eek: ( no innuendo's please ;) ) this is a lot less expensive, but it does'nt look as nice as a Holz.

IAN

p.s. position of hole is usually 4 or 8 o'clock

jeff020699
04-25-2003, 04:30 PM
no hole,yet. but i intend to. but of all the signatures ive seen ol' dude,[forgot the name] has the best. its not how many drums or cymbals you have, its how you play. most cool my friend!!!!

Love that color on those exports....

Hey just curious, it looks like in the pics that the 8 and 10 toms have different colored shells (inside) than the other toms and bass? Is that an illusion, or are the shells different?

jeff020699
04-28-2003, 09:24 PM
no it was the way the light hit them. i saw that and thought what???!!!!:eek: but i looked at them after the pic and they do have a slightly lighter color you would have to be looking for that. dude your kit is awsome! i love the outdoor shots.

I thought my Pearl cymbals sounded good until i knocked over my trash can. Then i started playing that.

jeff020699
04-29-2003, 09:36 PM
well again i use my ol' standby saying. your opinion is just that its yours. i have played on just about all makes of cymbals. yes some are better than others, but my pearls sound as good as anything out there. i guess you just need to keep them clean and know how to mount them right. this ol' argument has really gotten boring.:o but on the same thought, your comment is probably about as bright and as slick as your drum playing is, but if your used to playing on trash cans i guess you wouldnt know what real drums are supposed to sound like. but again thats my opinion.

CHILL. Dude, i have never owned a pearl cymbal in my life. IT WAS A JOKE. Some people take small things in life, such as comments on forums, WAY too seriously. You dont have to defend your precious pearl cymbals to anyone. I know they sound like crap, so do tons of other people, but if its what you like, go for it. It'll save you alot of money.

Man, what awesome come back! Tell me i cant play. Well how about this for an opinion? I could probably tear your *** up on the kit, but im not going to waste my time recording something that i think is acceptable just to impress some loser putting people down on the internet. Get a life. Just my opinon;)

Why don't you record something and prove your massive amounts of skill then?

I dont flaunt my skill, so therefore have nothing to prove by posting a recording. This whole thing is stupid. It all started because i made a scarcastic comment about Pearl cymbals. Come on man.

Here is a crappy little "solo" i did. It's nothing special, i even messed up a couple times, lol.

Thanks:)

You should take your drums outside and get bright sunlight pics! You'll be surprised how the color of the finish gets brought out in the sun. I don't think it would matter if it were wrap or lacquer!

BTW-since you said the shells on the 8 and 10 were a slightly different color (I still am amazed how different they look in the pic) did you by chance buy the five piece one year and the tom add-on seperately the next year when the wood changed to Poplar?

I would have been afraid of doing the same if I ever bought a new piece for my kit. Don't have to worry about that though unless the bring the Burgundy Mist back. I can't believe they did away with that finish.

And forget the guys dissing your cymbals. I have B8 and Pro cymbals and like them just fine, but Pearl and Sabian's lower end cymbals are the most trashed cymbals on this forum. Apparently you are a loser if you own them if you listen to what they say on this forum. I say screw them, play what sounds good to you!

Going way back to the drum head discussion. Think about what color head and holz rings you want. The rings come in chrome, gold, and black. They can totally change the look of your set. I have made two heads myself. Both identical in materials, but give me a different look when I want it.
