    replied to cleaning mesh heads
    Oxi Clean really works a treat. I'd spilt coffee on my larger snare drum mesh head and there was a small spot of something on the last tom that had been there for ages. Never thought coffee stains would come out very well.

    Last night, I mixed a couple of scoops of some cheapo Oxi Clean...

    Beautiful kit mkok, that wood finish is stunning and looks to be in pristine condition.

    Yep, I don't think I'll ever sell mine, they're easy to tune and always sounds great. Though I fancy a second kit with a 22" kick. The Sakae Trilogy series, and the Tama Starclassic with diecast hoops on all toms appeal to me. By the way, for head replacement I can recommend the Evans UV1...

    Sounds awesome Kenster!! That's my kind of music, syncopated, atmospheric and groovy. Good job! Really sorry about your keyboard player. Life can be very cruel.

    Thanks for the comments guys. mkok, I always found the natural wood finish very appealing. And today I would have preferred shallower toms. At the time, Dave Weckl was using the deeper power toms and Cherrywood colour so as a fanboy I copied.


    Very nice kit there Eric! But I bet...

    My Yamaha drums

    Hi guys. I've not posted in the Acoustic forum before. Here's a pic of my kit. I bought the snare drum a few months ago, it's a Sakae Trilogy snare in black oyster wrap and I love it! It sounds really nice. The kit is my old 1990's Yamaha 9000 Recording Custom kit. Toms are 12" and 15", kick...

    Latin Fusion tune

    Hi guys. This is an original tune I heard and downloaded just today from a site called freedrumlesstracks. There's no actual drum part for it so I created my own. It's quite short and I hope you enjoy it.

    (Edit:Replaced with a re-recorded version)

    replied to Snare trigger, head & rim question
    I have the TD9 and I also get false triggering using my PD-125 snare. Yesterday I noticed a rimshot when I'd struck just the mesh head. In fact, I don't think I intentionally hit the pad, the stick accidentally dropped onto the head and triggered it. Also, there's been a few times I've played the rimshot...
