  • Just Bought A Pro Drum Riser 8) !!!

    Hey Dudes! I just blew $804 on a (2-5' x 2.5' interlocking sections) 5' x 5', carpeted, Pro Stage 100 Drum Riser to setup in my new muzak studio for our weekly jams! Am I wasteful or what?!

    Goto http://www.secoa.com/set_ps.htm & take a peek at their products. Ask for John Mullen (Director of Sales & Marketing), & tell him Alexander Rosset from SF, CA. & this site referred you.

    Also, what are some other freight options, besides UPS, from Minneappolis, MN. to SF, CA.?

    Please dont take this personally, but THAT was $800? I built a v shaped drum riser to accomodate my double bass kit w/rack for probably under $250 (materials from Home Cheapo). The v shape actually allows the whole thing to take up less space than many single bass kits, plus I have removable legs in 3 sizes (to accomodate different ceiling heights). Can you get your cash back? I think you've been taken advantage of.

      Hey Axe, Thanx for your $.02. No, I can't get my money back. They're custom building it now. I put $200 down. I owe another $800 ($100 for shipping) on Monday, then it's shipped. I also bought 16", 24", & 32" sets of removeable legs. Isn't this a good lifelong musical investment?

      Oh well, I probably would have built one if I'd had experience with this stuff.

        I was talking about a riser with my guitarist at our gig on Friday (where there happened to be no stage). He is the McGyver-type, always custom building stuff. But I am not (although I have tried ). I may eventually just build a riser with carpeted plywood and put some milk-crates underneath, but for now I can just be content that I don't have to worry about transporting the extra stuff to and from gigs. Your option (versus DIY) may have cost more, but you got quality stuff without any hassle...
        E-drums: TD-20, RT-5S triggers on snare/toms, KD-7s, VH12, CY-14Cs, CY-15R, Pintech splash.
        A-drums: Zickos (amber) w/ all Zildjians.

          I built a 6'x8' 18" high riser in two 6'x4' sections, painted and carpeted them for about $100. I made them in sections for portability. These things will hold several people without so much as a squeak and they are not very heavy.
          I'm a drummer. I don't play the timpani! Hire a percussionist!!!

            Oh well, I receive mine on Wednesday. Total bill was $1044, after a $100 shipping fee. I'm hoping this new piece of furniture will last a lifetime & purdy up our music studio.
