    NickShles,

    I've always learned to play songs on the drums by ear.

    I think the key is to listen to the music (without playing anything on the drums) until the arrangement of the song and the...

    Great thoughts. My experience has been the same.

    I would only add that a solid kick and snare sound can make you stand out regardless of any other "chops."

    Interesting finish but it doesn't look like the badge was removed before applying it.

    It also might look nicer on a higher quality steel snare drum like Sensitone.

    You can also use the 42mm (SST-5042) tension rods with the BRL-65. I just bought a 20-pack of them on Reverb that was a lot cheaper than buying the 6-packs.

    Another thing I've found best to do with the Optimounts is to leave the extension set screws loosened until you have the toms tuned while they are actually on the tom arm. Then, tighten the...

    I agree.

    A titanium or bell bronze shell with the same heads isn't going to sound any different.

    The price and the badge don't affect the sound.

    If you decide to special order the bass drum hoop in that color, I'd suggest just going through Masterworks and getting a fully finished pair. It isn't that much more expensive and will look much...

    Yes, they are legit.

    The seller is an authorized Pearl dealer who special orders a large quantity of unique Pearl snares and toms and resells them.

  13. Pearl Boomerang Curved Boom Arm Closed Hi-Hat (mod)

    Hi,

    I needed one of these for a current Masterworks build to match the other two CHC-200 curved boom arms I'm using for regular cymbals.

    It is made from a CLH-930 top, TL-2030 GyroLock tilter,...

    Drummeric,

    Did you consider lacquering the gold hardware after it was cleaned?

    Insane65,

    I agree. I had an MCT sparkle kit a few years ago and the first thing I did was order a set of fully finished hoops to match through MW.

    Be sure to check with Masterworks to make sure they can do it and you can get a sample before you order. It's not always possible for them to emulate a wrap finish in a lacquer.

    Hi,

    Yes, they should work.

    For example, the 28" deep Pearl Premiere Pro wood congas use the same heads as the 30" Elite series wood congas.

    Nice snare collection and rack.

    I have 6 of the Pro-Line snare racks, but they take up a lot of horizontal space. It would be nice to have a taller rack like that.

    Only people who have buyers remorse after spending thousands of dollars on "branded" Chinese snare drums that are collecting dust are making a conspiracy out of this.
