  • Drum settings for different bands

    Does anyone know if there is a list somewhere that tells you what settings to use to get a sound like a band of choice ? I play along to songs a lot and it would be nice to have a similar sounding drumset. I have a td6 !

          You don't have VEX yet Kev? What the....? Oh yeah, neither do I....but I'm gonna! Some day. But I'm holding out until I see an Eric Carr kit (a la "I Love It Loud" from the Creatures of the Night album)....yep, that's the reason.

            Hey Kev and FB32: you don't mean that, do ya? Posting 1,8 and 1,5 k-posts and owning all that hardware without owning a single VEX kit? It was my first and best upgrade. Well...the VH-11 is also great...and I like the ATH-50 very much...the KRK's are sweat too...
