Default Re: Tama vs Pearl - Late 70s/Early 80s

In regards to the late 70's and 80's...There weren't really any good drums coming out of that era! LOL! kinda kidding , but not really. That was when super-heavy stands and electronic drums were starting to develop and "regular" drum making seemed to be on a hiatus. I had the same experience as yourself with a Ludwig B/O kit....Shells were over sized, the glue for the wrap wasn't strong....hated the Hercules hardware with the plastic wing screws and tubular legs. I was looking at the Lynn Drum machine, an Emulator and Simmons drums in the early 80's, myself!
