  1. my cover band

    Cool. Make Me Wanna has a nice lope to it. I wasn't expecting you to be playing so mellow!
  2. TOOL 46 and 2 drum drum :)

    Rock on! Sounds great and also the kit is gorgeous Sonor kit as well. Birds eye maple?
  3. In-Ears for under $20!!!!

    The ES3 for a couple bucks more with the dual driver is pretty frickin' sweet. Seems most people that started with the ZST have switched to the es3 and are happier with the bass quality. The silicon tips are the first thing you should get rid of. The Comply foam earbuds seem to be the way to go. It's got a nice wide frequency response and is quite clear. I have been using them for a little while now - just breaking in the drivers and all I can say is, for 20 bucks, it is a steal. Is it like my reference sennheiser HD cans? No. But I am completely happy with the sound quality and are way better than the Shure SE-210's I have been using for 5 times the price. You can get spare units without feeling guilty. Get them before the Trade Wars jump up prices like crazy! https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B076H3F66D/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002NUSMC8/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    never heard of them but I will go check them out on YouTube!
  5. Welcome to the forum! Thanks for posting up the video! Sick playing brother. Kit sounds really nice as well.
  6. Electro Deluxe Big Band

    yeah. it's funky. If you like the horns and funk scene, check out Turkuaz and Sister Sparrow and Dirty Birds.
  7. Zigaboo! Tasty Grooving. Nice CL ride! Smokey and has a nice tah. Unfortunately I haven't added a CL ride but I have a couple of Matt Bettis rides though. I try to support American cymbalsmiths when I can.
  8. Electro Deluxe Big Band

    You all know Electro Deluxe? One of my most favorite funk bands currently. Unfortunately they only tour in Europe but I hope they make it over here. Some of the slinkiest drum parts on the planet. I was just grooving to this for the past hour.
  9. 14 Piece Mapex Saturn III/Simon Phillips edition.

    Welcome to the forum! Yes you are right about Simon’s drum sizes. But he also plays Tama too. I think the purpose of the setup was to pay tribute to Simon but not make it a replica kit by any stretch. But you called it, killer looking kit for sure. keep posting Skillz!

    old school pocket playing. hard to beat that.
  11. Introducing www.percunivers.com

    nice! well laid out and easy to follow. Great job putting this together! A terrific resource.

    lol. shells have no impact on sound! none. So get a plastic pail and get you some nice veneer to wrap it and let the money rain! ok i opened the box. sorry! hahaha.

    Well there you have it. Drum shells are totally irrelevant to sound! Slick, what technology allows one to do.
  14. Drum sound. Let's look at shells.

    After spending a bunch of time reading and watching and reflecting, here are my takeaways. Heads - Big impact on sound. No denying that. Hardware - Can impact sound but in attenuation of sound, not adding to it. There is definitely something to be said for aesthetic appeal but has no bearing on sound enhancement. Rims - Same as hardware, for amount of sound attenuation. Weight and mass = less vibration. Finish - Could affect attenuation of sound, but doesn't add anything. Construction - Ultimately any well made shell will sound good. I don't care if it is old school or using new methods. Noble & Cooley have been using the same technique and tools to make their drums for a century. They sound excellent. DW's super solid sound really nice too and that's as new school as it gets. Shells Hybrid - Difficult to discern if it adds anything to sound. Exotic Veneer - No effect. Single species composition - Depending on the type of wood can make a significant difference in sound. Thickness - has an affect. For me, mainly about SPL. Bearing edge - might have some affect. I think a rounded edge (baseball bat) vs any sharp cut edge are the only real difference makers. Cost - I think as a foundation, if the shell is made well and is round, the cheapest method is fine by me. If additional cost is added due to the veneer and detail in finish, that's fine by me as well. Do I think a Maple Tama Star shell is going to be better than a maple starclassic shell? Not really. Do I think an all bubinga starclassic will sound differently from an all birch shell, yes. Sticks - yes can make a difference in sound. Marketing hype - Yes, there is a lot of it. It's prevalent in ever sector of business. Whether you choose to go blindly with the marketing or not, is up to you. I have no issues with companies looking to increase sales... they aren't in the business to just stay afloat or languish. They have to make money or else we don't get to have a lot of great selections to choose from. I however understand that it is just marketing and do not take anything as gospel until I have had a chance to check the veracity of the message my self. What do you all think?

    cool! Brass Edition is a great snare. I have one of those as well.
