    What's on the toms in the recording?

    I'm looking to possibly switch from coated emperors to something a little brighter on my full Bubinga.

    I was thinking something in the realm of a suede...

    Thank you, I spent my entire afternoon at work reading this *****show.

    This was internet gold.

    For real. I feel like most of those dinky "Custom" companies are overhyped drums for people that still think My Chemical Romance is a good band. They're drums for immature drummers.

    You're...

    The nicest sounding wood snare is probably my Pearl Masters MHX.

    It's not the most versatile, as it really only sounds good in the medium to lower registers, but when you dial it in, it's got...

    I'm alive and well my friend!

    I went with a Tama Starclassic Bubinga and have been in love with it ever since.

    Yeah I remember seeing that thread. Pearl got the finish wrong on one kit he had made, and then had some issues with the finish on his next one I believe. It might have been bad luck on his end, but...

    It's actually Luan, but yeah it's the same idea. Super soft, and super cheap.

    Poplar and Luan are kind of like the rice cakes of the drum world. They don't sound bad necessarily, they just don't...

    I hear that. I was a dyed in the wool DW fanboy for so long that I really considered them to be the only worthy brand out there for a while. And to be fair, from about 2007-2015 or so they were...

    This takes me back to the glory days of the Forum. MIss seeing everybody posting those massive Masterworks kits.

    Check your bearing edges. I had the exact same issue on my DW kit. The 10" would tune perfectly, kick and snare sounded phenomenal. In fact I'm still kind of upset for sending back the snare. But man...

    I'd say a basic kit in those specs shouldn't cost more than about $4K or so. Pearl's build quality is finally getting back to where it was in the 1990's-2000's glory days. I might consider picking up...

    MRP and MCX were essentially the exact same thing. Same shells, same drum hardware, and if you preferred standard configurations, same sizes.

    The Premiums were really more of a continuation of...

    And mine was $379 US brand new. Unless you're talking Gretsch roundbadges, drums usually never appreciate in value, so his price and knowledge are way out of whack.

    I got a 14x6.5 MHX snare back in 2009 that was my absolute go to for many years. I still use it on my rehearsal kit all the time. Such a pleasing tone.

    I've found that it doesn't really...

    I'd say my old Forums took stain pretty well. But I will say they were very inconsistent drum to drum. Some took 4 coats, others took 6, and one took 2. They're not perfect, but they're close enough....

    Honestly I'd send them back and get something based on how you feel and play behind the kit.

    I experienced the same thing when I upgraded to my first Pro kit a few years ago. I originally bought...

    I would leave the original wrap on it, if you're trying to restore them. If it's sentimental value you're going for, keep the yellowing, as it's still the same stuff your dad gifted to you. There's...
