    Struggles of being left handed

    So my band essentially had a meeting without me last night, and came to conclusion that one thing that could be holding us back from getting gigs is the fact that I'm left-handed (as the name would...

    I honestly am not impressed in the slightest. They're using some sort of resin as the thick center ply, which I hate, and they sound way too punchy, which I also hate. I was hoping for the old Oak...

    Anybody see the new Yamaha Live Custom Hybrid?

    Honestly they look nice but I'm kind of disappointed. I was hoping they would listen and get rid of the dark silver hardware, go back to thinner...

    I didn't know what this meant until I saw it. Yikes. Are they really doing that bad behind Meinl and Zildjian that they have to rebrand like this? It does seem like they're having trouble finding a...

    My Band's Debut EP

    Hey Everyone,

    Not sure if this is allowed or not, but here goes. One of the bands that I'm in just dropped our first EP late last month, and it's finally gotten to Spotify, so I'm just going to...

    I use a set of inexpensive Audio Technica drum mics that I bought for gigs, and a Harbinger 14 channel USB mixer that I got to submix drums for shows, and use my GoPro. I don't really care about...

    Welp. Too late as usual. Hey at least you got your problem fixed which is good. Hope you're enjoying your new kit man. Post pics if you haven't already!

    On a drum that thick, there's no way I wouldn't put a pillow in it. Either that or use a heavily muffled bass drum head. With thinner drums you can get away with it since the pitch is usually lower...

    I was wondering where he went. He and ROMAN (which I assume is RYAN LOWE now) were on here all the time back in the day. Now I guess I figured out why he's not on anymore.

    Hey there, welcome to the PDF, looks like you have a pretty good kit for a project on your hands.

    Are you trying to make your 16" a mounted or "floating" floor tom, or keep the legs on it?

    Yeah I really dig the True Hoops. They make the drum easier to tune like a Cast hoop, but still allow some openness like a Triple Flanged.

    Fortunately you can still get tube lugs on DW snares. If...

    I respect John Good for his dedication and innovation. He's certainly nothing but a genuine guy. There is some truth to grain orientation and all that, and it's neat to see drums being made out of...

    You could always see about getting one made in Masterworks specs. I know it's not ideal, but it would match.

    Holy crap that looks amazing. Those Sessions drums are by far my favorite offering from Pearl. I'm totally impressed by what you get for the money. Very classy looking indeed.

    Haha well see I guess it pays to be informed. It always struck me as weird that I'd find a pattern with the janka scale, then I'd see stuff that would go completely against it. Like Oak for example,...

    I'm on a few Tama groups on Facebook, and there are a few Hoshino guys on there that run some polls on what the players want, and Birch Starclassics are always the #1 thing requested. So much so that...

    There's some truth to hardness having to do with shell properties, but it's not the only gauge. Some of it involves how open or closed the grains are, and how easy it is for the sound waves to...

    I know there's talk of Tama doing a high-end all-birch Starclassic to replace the Performer and Full-Bubinga kits, to go along with the SQ1 release from Sonor last year, I don't see why Pearl...

    I wouldn't think that a particular wood or metal would be better or worse for ghost notes than any other. Heads, wires, wire tension, and tuning affect ghost notes more than anything. Tune the bottom...

    Rupps or Memphis Drum Shop are good people to go through. You should be able to order through them.

    Why not talk to Al and see if they can special order one for you? I'm sure they can still do the finish on a 4-ply shell, the badge might be different though.
