    It sounds lke you need both eventually. A stereo portable recorder, rather than a digital multitracker, is probably the easiest and quickest way to record acoustic demos, and can get your recording...

    +1 for the Oktava mics. They are fantastic for the money, not electret but true condensers, and you can swap the capsules for different pick up patterns and even a large diaphragm. Incredibly...

    Hi there!

    I definitely recommend going the DAW route if you have the compute power to handle it, and preferrably a pc or laptop to dedicate to it if you can. It is so much more flexible, and being...

    Thanks for the advice! I was going to try the MV2 on the rack tom and DV2 on the floor, since those sizes were what was readily available in the store. I'd have to order and wait if I wanted a MV2...

    Thanks for the kind words and welcomes, yall! Nice to see so many familiar names around still. :) This forum life really took a break for a while, it was a surprise my account was still active.

    Hi all! Thought it was time to check in for a change. I wanted to show off my new kit, it's been a long time coming, so here are a couple pics snapped quickly in rehearsals.

    Back in 2017, the...

    Last time I cleaned cymbals I used sodium carbonate and vinegar. It got rid of all fingerprints and most stick marks, and didn't do anything to the logos. It didn't polish them, and some tougher...

    I used to have an Export kit on those exact sizes. I mounted the 12" and 14" toms off a cymbal stand using an AX-38 three-way clamp (as shown in MCXMochaTamoMadden's photo). If you plan to use only...

    Room acoustics, heads and tuning make a HUGE difference. So take your VMX kit to the same spot, set it up the same way and tune it the same way, preferably with similar heads, and see how different...

    If you read through the forum rules, you'll notice any kind of soliciting is forbidden. Instead, try putting a notice in your signature. That's not as likely to get...

    I dig your train of thought. I usually tune my toms so that the reso head is tuned to a full quart higher pitch than the batter. This gets me nice attack and moderate decay. I've noticed that a minor...

    Name all the 23" rides you know, and there you have the best ones of that particular size. As far as I know Sabian doesn't have any rides larger than 22", although you could always custom order one....

    A nice set of cymbals is nice, but those Meinl MCS won't be any nicer than what you already have. Save up. Sell stuff you don't need. A poor drummer can't afford to cheap out on cymbals, it's money...

    All very true - the Vision series did replace the Exports. The first thing with the Vision series I got interested in was the hardware, as that's what mid-range kits compete with. It had all the good...

    This isn't an opinion of mine, it's only physics. Technically, sound doesn't penetrate anything, so bad choice of words on my part there. If you grasp what sound is, then you will understand that it...

    Of course sound can penetrate it. It's not made of concrete. If the shell of the drum didn't resonate, (which is the characteristic of sound transferring "through" an object) the drum would be dead...

    Would never pay $60 for a Paiste 400 16" crash. They're old, weren't great to begin with, and time has not made them any better. If you put it on eBay, I'm fairly sure people won't bid on it unless...

    Everything on a kit resonates more or less when you play any one piece of it. A 22" ride is big enough to get toms nearby resonating. An acquaintance of mine used to have a 27" china above his floor...

    It needs a new spur regardless. Next time remember to keep those threads lubed and don't ever overtighten them! They are chinese metal, which is undeniably not as good quality as Pearl's Taiwan-made...

    Which sizes do you have, and how high/low do you like to tune them? For extremely short sustain and heavy punch, the Evans Hydraulic batter head is pretty much the choice, but IMHO they don't sound...
