Re: Craigslist In Your Area-What's the vibe?

I can't believe that kit hasn't sold. That's a very reasonable price for a very nice kit.

I'm also stunned at how long some things are listed for, and honestly, I don't think the prices are that...

Re: Got a rare Orange Trident kit (by Capelle)

I'm not familiar with these drums, but they are certainly unique and should look and sound great when you get the missing bits together and clean her up.

Keep us posted on your progress with cool...

Re: Flat or Angled?

Glad you popped in Tommyp!

Man, I love that Fibes kit. Just beautiful and it must look and sound great on stage. The flat cymbal look really fits that kit. The cymbals look right that way.

Re: Flat or Angled?

I like your cymbal set up with the 3 cymbals coming off of one stand. Nice and tidy. I am waiting on a Gibralter cymbal arm extension as we speak so I can add one more cymbal without adding another...

Re: Leedy in Austin

You sold your Leedy set at a better price for sure. I really wanted to jump on it, by I wasn't ready. My loss.

Nice kit here though, love the blue sparkle.

Re: How Do You Play? Matched or Traditional Grip?

Both for now.

For jazz, up to a medium speed swing, I'll go traditional. It just feels proper and it gives a different sound on the snare. When the beat gets to quick, I have to go matched grip....

Re: Flat or Angled?

Actually, that's my traditional grip set up. The picture might be deceiving, or maybe I had the snare stand turned a bit to much, but the snare should be tilted down on the right side. I do have a...

Re: Flat or Angled?

For the flat players, do you ever ding or break cymbals that way?

I can't seem to get a decent crash playing flat, unless their up reasonably high and when their to high I can't ride them well....

Re: Latest trixon speedfire!!

Man that kit looks great! Nice work.

These kits look very cool, but are they hard to play with those toms set so flat? It seems like it would be tough to get over the top of them.

Re: Flat or Angled?

Thanks for the opinions guy's.

I do like the look of the low, flat cymbals I see guys playing on their kits, but I find it difficult to play them. If I just crashed them, I could probably live...

Flat or Angled?

I notice a lot of the drummers on the scene these days play with their cymbals straight, with no angle, and really low as well, while BITD, they almost all played with their cymbals on an angle and...

Re: 60s Premier and Ajax Nu Sound Sets

My only kit is an MIJ as well, and I would also have to sell mine to make room for something "better". Being around this forum is problematic, because it's easy to get caught up in wanting something...

Re: 60s Premier and Ajax Nu Sound Sets

I'm a sucker for red sparkle kits, and that kit looks immaculate. The price isn't crazy either, and the seller is open to offers, but the shipping is to high, at least for me.

Re: Evans 360 uv1

I've been hearing really good things about these drum heads, especially on YouTube. But I gather they sound like G1s, except they have a better coating.

Re: 60s Premier and Ajax Nu Sound Sets

Oooof! I'd regret that myself. What a beautiful kit, and the sizes are spot on as well. I love the 2 floor tom set-up.

Great price to, especially considering the big sizes and condition, but the...

Re: Three Sides of Ludwig

Checking that pesky inflation calculator, that $100 was almost $500 in 75. Crazy, huh? Still a good deal, but I think the surfer wound up with a pretty decent board as well!:p
