Title: First Time Gear Buyer Questions Here!
Post by: bangbus on August 18, 2006, 08:05:02 AM
Need help fellas. as you may have noticed, my kit looks absurd with all those mic stands and it is for this reason that i embark on a new quest for Microphone Drum Rim Clips/Mounts.

I've tried Perfect Pitch park square/megamall, JB park square/megamall, Audiphile makati cinema square...lahat wala. If i'll buy naman here in uk, it will cost me 500pesos per piece and sa ebay uk naman 1500pesos for a set of 4. ang mahal noh?!

in this regard, i hope you guys would be able to help me source this in Manila. I need about 6-8 pieces. Please let me know where I can get them and how much. Thank you so much.  :)

Here are some pics of it:

meron nyan sa audiophile. ibang brand lang. yung samson. try lazer, they have their own version too. I saw them at audiophile in festival mall in alabang.

those holders are from CAD microphones. unfortunately, there's no dealer here that carries that brand as far as i know.

Lazer.

Don't forget to bring a sample coz they have various sizes/lengths. should be around 20 to 30 pesos a piece.

yep still here, i just ask favours from people i can depend on to help me sort out some stuff over there. ah the mixer is a 12-channel powered one that i use to mic up and project my kit as if i were in a gig...thats one area of drumming that i have actually begun to explore lately.

nice mic clips bro bangbus..
i have a couple of packs myself though i rarely use them coz i just taped my mics (neatly) onto my old cymbals stands para mas stable pag recording. if i can find my samson mic clips, would you be interested in buying them sir bugoy?
Title: Re: Drum Mic Clips
Post by: starfugger on November 11, 2006, 11:35:53 AM
lazer clips are kind of weird in a way because they really use CLIPS to hold the mic, isntead of your regular cylindrical plastic mic holder (or whatever it is officially called).  so there's the danger of of falling drum mics.  not good. plus it also comes in goose neck config, which doesnt always stay in place.  not good, once again because drum micing is a precise art.

ive always wondered about mechanical noise when it comes to using drum clips.  theoretically one would want to isolate mics in a way that they dont come in contact with vibrating objects.  this is the reason why condenser mics have shock mounts.  but then again condensers are much more sensitive than regular dynamic mics used to close mic the toms and the snare.  in any case one's safest bet is perhaps to use mic stands.  samson stands are very cheap, plus they will allow you to position your mic virtually anywhere u want ...

also, in the past i used my gibraltar rack as mic stands.  i went to a machine shop and had adaptors custom made so that the hole fits the cymbal stand screw, and the outside of the adaptor fits in the mic clip.  saved me a couple of thousand bucks on stands then.

Ahh, bass drum spurs...


If your kick drum is a Pearl, there are Pearl bass drum spurs available at Yupangco/Perfect Pitch (contact JP).

Check mo rin sa JB if the have spurs made by Gibraltar.  O kaya check Lazer or other shops in places like Raon.

Paano nilalagay?  Just screw it to the bass drum shell.

Yung pic na na-post mo, yung nasa lower right, is that your actual bass drum?

The way I understand it...  It's either your spurs are the old-style ones (just like the one in your lower left pic), or may holes na drilled for a specific model/design of spur.

It would be more helpful if you can post a pic of your actual bass drum and its spurs.

you need to drill new holes on your bass drum

- heavy duty spurs have different hole spacing
- new spurs should be placed higher

Hi philmusician,

im planning to buya kit for my 12yo nephew coz i want to get him into drums (reason ko para meron ako ka jam palagi sa house) but before i do that, i want to at least get an idea on the stuff i should look at when purchasing a kit. I played drums for 6 years but never really got into the technical aspect of it like what the actual drums are made of and things like that. So to sum things up, please give me some tips on what to look for when purchasing a kit.



Thank you and have a great day

well actually para samin dalawa un. hehehe. reason ko lang sya. hahahah.

ok i think im not getting my message across. The answers i was looking for was, the materials the drums are madoe of, how many lugs, the importance of such and such.

just like buying a guitar, we look for wood, neck, fret wear and stuff.

i had a choice then between a pearl export and a maya kit priced at 22k and 7k respectively (10 years ago). i choose the maya kit coz its cheap. after 5 years, my maya kit has become more expensive than the pearl export due to hardware upgrades and replacements. lesson learned: hardware is more expensive than drums, invest in a drum kit with really good hardware. check the metal used on the lugs, tom holders and stands, some current offerings look like "plastic" and they dont last long esp. on those who over tighten screws and nuts. shiny chrome plating and heavyness are signs of good hardware. stock pedals suck, invest on a high end pedal once you get extra money. GET A DRUM THRONE <--- very very important

shells, birch would be a good starting point but the type of wood is not really important now because your budget will not get you better wood. phil mahogany and bass wood are the common ones used on shells. its ok hehehe i know guitar players hate those woods. just check for ply separation and dents on the edge. finally inspect the finish.

drum sizes, for beginners, it would be really helpful to get those "fusion" sized kits usually configured with 10,12,14 toms and a 20 bass drum. these sizes are easy to tune and easier position for maximum playing comfort since the user would be a kid. standard drums with 12,13,16 toms and a 22 bass drum are ok too but it would be very difficult for beginners to tune the 16" tom.

drum heads - they dont matter, anything will do. you WILL replace them later on so there's no point in looking for something better from the start.

cymbals - go high end from the start, you cant upgrade the sound of cymbal. buy something mediocre and it will be mediocre sounding forever. you dont have to get all cymbals at once. chances are, there is a cymbal pack included so start with what's missing and then replace them one by one later. high end cymbals have good resale value, that's if the drummer decides to quit.

well said peeves...yeah you are right..before i look at the drum throne as a simple seat on the drums...so why would i spend?...until later on i realized thats its hard to play and practice seriously if you are not comfortable with your seat... :wink:..drum throne is a must and yes peeves you are right that you cannot upgrade cymbals..go for the best value.. :wink:

oh my god. finally.thank you sir ng madami. i will put all of these into consideration when buying a kit. ACtually ive used a gretsh fusion kit, not only its good for kids coz its kind of small, but i think it can improve your accuraccy.

again thanks

PS. basswood for guitars are not that bad but we guitarist try to stay away from it. hahahah

Exactly what I did. I have very limited knowledge about hardwares then. I suddenly saw this ad for a pearl export. It was old, roughly early to mid 90's.. lugs are with corners and some sort of long connector between a pair of lugs... though rusted and beaten, I could say the hardware is superb. only a pair of lugs were replaced, and that was even before I got the kit.

I started knowing about the cymbals. 14" HH Dark crash was the first. I tried using it as top hat of a new Pearl cymbal hat came along with the old kit. (my guess is that the previous owner got a new Pearl kit). Then got a very good ride, then Hats, Then Evo crash and splash then a china recently...

It really is worth to wait for a good cymbals... believe Peeves, he knows it well.. bout the cymbals, as JPMB... he will give you a good deal and make sure that you get what you want and deserve..

yung pearl export po namin sa church 10 years na,
maayos pa po yung mga hardware,
pero mas maganda sana kung naalagaan nung drummer na pinalitan ko,
ma-alikabok kc sa lugar namin,
wala namang bintana,
pero alam ko po mura yun at maganda,
tingin ko nga po tatagal pa yun ng another 10years...  :-)

Ey guys! I'm new here. I'm planning to buy a drum set tho wala ako masyado alam sa ganito like yun parts niya, sizes, specs and so on.

I have some questions po sana matulungan niyo ako.

-Ok po ba ang Gretsch na drums? Sa quality niya? Ano pinagkaiba neto sa ibang leading brands ng drums   like yun Pearl? I've heard of this kasi and sabi nila ok daw to.

-Ano mas ok sa Catalina Maple and Ash?

-Anong other option pa ba ang malapet na ren sa Gretsh? Fernando, Sonor or iba pa?

-And lastly, sa mga natanong kong packages ang cymbals daw na kasama eh yun Zildjian Planet Z 4 pc. Is this set of cymbals ok?

- any tips pa po? ano ba dapat ko malaman when buying a set?

Bale gagamitin ko lng yun set indoors tho gs2 ko na rin sanang set eh yun mailalabas mo na rin for ocassional shows/gigs. And as much as possible eh yung tatagal talaga na set kase I don't have intentions of buying me a second set. Tama na ang isa kaya gs2 ko lahat andon na sa bibilin ko. ü

Oh of this one counts na ren, I'm planning to learn jazz style of drum playing.

I'm really sorry for the noobie questions.

Thanks much!

For me, Maple...

-Anong other option pa ba ang malapet na ren sa Gretsh? Fernando, Sonor or iba pa?
Depende sa model ng Sonor, ok yung mga bago na Fernando(sulit na sulit :D )

-And lastly, sa mga natanong kong packages ang cymbals daw na kasama eh yun Zildjian Planet Z 4 pc. Is this set of cymbals ok?
Invest in good cymbals na.... dami sa classifieds... hanggang ngayon nanghihinayang pa ko dun sa set ng AAX for 15K :cry: :cry: :cry:

- any tips pa po? ano ba dapat ko malaman when buying a set?
If you're unsure you're personal judgement... better bring along someone you trust that knows a thing or two about drums :D
pero pointers... yung madaling ma notice:
hardware... if its heavy.. probably.. ok yun.. i think :wink: except pedal.. hehehe
check the shells, look for smooth, clean?, no deformities...
try the kit...

Bale gagamitin ko lng yun set indoors tho gs2 ko na rin sanang set eh yun mailalabas mo na rin for ocassional shows/gigs. And as much as possible eh yung tatagal talaga na set kase I don't have intentions of buying me a second set. Tama na ang isa kaya gs2 ko lahat andon na sa bibilin ko. ü

Gretsch Maple, Pearl Export Series or better yet you're gonna learn jazz pala... get the sizes appropriate for Jazz... yun lang po...

It all depends on your budget, but you can't go wrong with the Gretsch Catalinas. Sonor Forces (Yung 2005 and 3005) are good too. But if buying these expensive sets mean you'll settle for the Z4 Cymbals, then reconsider muna. Z4 = Planet Z, the brass low-end cymbals of Zildjian. These don't really sound good at all.

It would be better to buy a cheaper set like Fernando (yung 28k na Marine Celluloid White!) so you can invest on better cymbals. Another alternative would be to wait for ads sa forums, so you can still buy better brands na second hand, and you can do this for your cymbals as well.

Um... Ano pa? Fusion setup siguro instead of the standard Rock setup would be good for Jazz drumming.

Thanks much sa reply guys.

just wanna know how bad yung Planet Z? di ba tatagal to? what about yun ZBT na cymbals?

sa ngayon eh balak na talaga namen is to go for the Gretsh Catalinas pero nagaalinlangan na kame coz sa comments nyo sa cymbals baka mag sisi kami. Pwede daw namen baguhin ng ZBT cymbals are those any good? Kaso ang laki ng dagdag >.<

@ edgeofillusion-jepoy - thanks are TAMA drums ok? san gawa yan?

@ sjon014 - salamat dude, panu yun fusion setup? and ok ba Fernando? Local to dba? Sabe nla di daw maganda yun pero ok b yun new sets nla?

@ matteotanga - dude thanks..kaw pala nag 22ro? 2ruan mo ko pag makasama ako ha! :D

@ wax_static - ey man salamat sinagut mo pa talaga isa isa yun tanongs ko. anyways, anu b ang sized appropriate for jazz like you said? Mas trip ko na rin ata yun maple pero mas costly siya!

Thanks again guys!

Post by: sjon014 on May 11, 2007, 11:22:50 PM
I think believe Fusion is the 10", 12", and 14" toms (all hanging), instead of the usual 12", 13", and 16" tom rock setup. Better uniformity when running down the toms, and the 14" tom is much easier to tune in my opinion than the 16".

The old fernando's were not really good... pero ito ang bagong Fernando!

(http://i136.photobucket.com/albums/q172/russelgo/b55p_05whcopy2.jpg)

Great diba? As for ZBT's... they are better than Planet Z syempre, pero I still would suggest you get cast bronze cymbals if your budget permits. Or unti-untiin mo.

3) price range
4) some feedback on the item (what to look out for)

padagdag na rin po kung ano ang mga advice nyo kung ano pa kelangan malaman ng isang gustong bumili ng drum set e.g. by piece ba ok o dapat buong set na?

You can never find the "perfect" drumset hangga't may nagmamanufacture pa ng mga bagong models, pero you can get the next best thing.

Pearl has this custom line of drumset na ikaw mismo pipili ng wood, size, even color. now how's that for perfection. Expect mo rin na may kamahalan ang price.

Pero if you want customization, contact peeves. heheeh, da best yan....

Pero if you really are a newbie on drums, and on a tight budget ka, fernando kits are great for starter kits. Yung bago ha, hindi yung luma.

OT - A musician's advice: Find the instrument that you truly feel in your heart, hindi  porke marunong ka na sa isang gamit, and you'd like that instrument, lipat ka dun. No, kung ano talaga ang nasa puso mo, yun ang gamitin mo, improve, be one of the best. I know i have found mine in drumming, dami nagco-comment sa akin, balik ka na lang ng keyboard dahil yun ang kinalakihan mo. I answer back, I get my orgasms during gigs in drumming  8-)

sir, mas maganda po kung mag sonor nalang po kayo. mas madali po kayung matututo kapag mas maganda ang mga gamit. i think sonor 505 ata yung 17k dun sa raon pero pwedeng pwede pa po tawaran. tapos yung sukli dagdagan niyo nalang po ng mga 2-3k may planet Z na po kayo. Decent na po pang practice. sulit pa po yung sonor kasi Remo na po lahat ng skins nun and yung mga hardware talagang durable. ayus din naman po yung fernando kaya lang 20k vs. 17k? wow.. i think mas maganda po ang sonor. opinion and advice lang po.. :-D

Post by: zound_tech on August 09, 2007, 09:25:18 PM
just got home from a friend's house,
he let me use his pearl export that he bought a month ago,
it cost him around 56k together with the b8 cymbals,
all i can say is  that it was all worth it,
from the looks, to the sound and the hardware,
at talgang nakakainspire nga magpractice,
i had a hard time leaving his place,
anyways,
the point is that, if you're really serious about drumming,
go buy the set that you really like if it means a little more saving,
investment naman yan eh
pero if your rili tight,
sonor force is not a bad choice,
yun gamit sa skul namin,
bili ka nalang skin and decent cymbals

kung gusto mo naman talaga ang pag dadrums...
bumili ka ng sulit bro..
investment na din yan
pero kung kulang ang budget mo talaga and if you cant wait
ok lang din.

siguro po mga 12-20k lang po budget ko. estudyante lang po kasi ako e!

Just my opinion: Instead of buying a drumset right away, I think you're better off buying a drum pad muna and find a good teacher. Get one of those pads with built-in metronome (mga worth 2K siguro) and work on your rudiments. Find a good teacher who will guide you as you go along. Now kapag tumagal ka ng 6 months or even a year just doing rudiments and which by that time (hopefully) you have mastered the rudiments then maybe you can justify buying a really good kit. Kasi kung bibili ka na kaagad ng drumset and after a few months nawalan ka ng gana, sayang lang yung set. Even if you sell it, sigurado lugi ka.

I guess what I'm really trying to say is find out first if desidido ka talagang mag-drums. And you can easily find that out by taking lessons. Mga iba, a few months into the lessons give up na sila, which means di talaga sila desidido matuto.

Isa pang "disadvantage" ng purchasing drums right away is that you will want to learn songs right away. Instead of focusing muna on the basics, gusto mo ng mag-groove with songs kaagad. In effect, you might be tempted to neglect the basics that a drummer should know. Pero kung drum pad lang, no choice ka but to work on your rudiments muna. So siguro mas maganda kung gawin mong trophy at the end yung drumset. Tell yourself na when you have finally mastered the basics of drumming then you can have the coveted trophy, which is actually the drumset itself.

And believe me, when you have mastered the basics and move on to the real drumset you will have a MASSIVE advantage over the others na kaagad nag-groove without really learning the basics.

I just realized that this is a complicated issue; well the best advice I can give you is maximize what you have/what you can have and make sure you like what your getting..

I agree with the concept of having the perfect drum kit..perfection is to each is his own which I think can only be possible with how you perceive perfection towards what you have..

I will place myself as an example, I myself own only an entry level kit but on a personal plane I consider this to be my perfect drum kit in its own way (really honestly!!! :wink:); others may think otherwise but it does not really matter, you will be the one creating a relationship with your new kit and not them so as a golden rule "never try to please everybody for you will surely fail".. :lol:

when you do get more specific on having particular kit options I think we might be able to help you more..keep us posted!


hope this helps a bit..good luck and happy hunting!  :-D

kung gusto mo ng matagalan na drums.. ipunin mo muna yan... practice pads muna... tapos pag me pera ka na... mas pipiliin ko Yamaha Rydeen kesa sa Pearl Export... kahit tambay ako sa pearl drummers forum mas gusto ko tunog ng Rydeen kaso maganda hardware ng Export... pero mas mura yung rydeen.. same entry level drums sila...

dun sa raon... ung sonor.. fernando... na magkakapresy halos parepareho lang na beginner kit yan...

mabuti na yung medyo mapapagastos ka kesa sa bibili ka ngayon pero pag nalaman mo pala na hindi yun yung gusto mong drums masasayang lang...

tulad ko wahaha... yung powerbeat kong drumset sampung taon na.. bebenta ko.. pag nakabili ako ng bagong heads bebenta ko to pambili ng rydeen o kaya export... ipopost ko dito.. hehe..

pag sa drums.. hirap explain eh.. tingnan mo yung kahoy sa luob ng drum. nner shell..baka may butas butas.pampapangit ng tunog yun.

sa cymbals.. dipende sayo kung ano gusto mong tunog..trust your ear.. hirap magsabi kung ano ang maganda.. iba iba tayo ng taste.. pero para safe ka.. A custom.. swabe tunog!

My 2 cents =)

Drums:

1) Type of Wood
check: http://www.drumdojo.com/tech/shelldesign.htm

2) Sizes
- Fusion (normally, 10, 12, 14 yung config ng toms. suitable for pop; rock; jazz)
- Standard (12, 13, 16. suitable for loud music)

3) Bearing edges
Yung edge ng drums...kung san nag sasalubong yung drum head at yung drum shell. Dapat consistent yung angle ng edges at walang dings

3) Tom suspension

Hardware

Normally, mga kit dito me kasama ng decent double braced hardware. Keep the cymbal stands...buy a mid or a high end drum pedal (double chain driven). Kung me extrang pera, bili ka din ng hi hat stand na me spring tension. 
Invest in a good drum throne. Ito yung pinakaimportanteng hardware sa lahat   

 :-)

This topic was brought up by a friend who is concerned about our new members in terms of buying new or used gears. If you have any suggestions or anything to add, please feel free to do so...

One thing that new members should know about is what to buy. New members should know what they really want to buy. Have a breif idea what those gears are and if they are the real thing. Some people might sell you a copy. Try to get proper information about the product, ask around. Everybody are willing to help out. Also buy gears that you will be using, not just because it is "COOL".

Any other suggestions???

compare nyo sa internet yung mga items na bibilhin nyo kung nasa tamang range ba yung price:

http://www.musiciansfriend.com/ (http://www.musiciansfriend.com/)
http://www.music123.com/ (http://www.music123.com/)
http://www.zzounds.com/ (http://www.zzounds.com/)

sa cymbals, kung faded na ang logos, inspect nyo yung physical appearance ng cymbals like lathing, hammering, etc... para malaman nyo kung authentic yung bibilhin nyong gear.

kung brand new yung item tapos, hindi pa ganun ka established yung source, magtanong tanong muna, mahirap mag ipon!!!

1. Save up and aim for high-end equipment, even if it's second-hand.

2. Most of the time, original stuff is always better than replicas.

3. An artist signature item is not always better than standard equipment. It's just different. Take a look at Chad Smith and Morgan Rose snare drums.

4. A product endorsed by an artist doesn't always equate to a great product. Take the Travis Barker-endorsed Pitch Black series cymbals, for example.

1) HARDWARE - Yung DDRUMS ko binalik ko dahil marupok yung mga bakal nun. And make sure na may mabibilhan kang SPARE PARTS pag may nasira.
2) Wood - Maple or birch ang maganda.
3) TOM size - Standard (12,13,16) or Weird size (10,12,14) or other size (10,12, 16,16). It's up to you what kind of beats you want to play.

to be safe, get two or three models that you like and ask the GOOD PEOPLE here in the forums!  :-D

compare nyo sa internet yung mga items na bibilhin nyo kung nasa tamang range ba yung price..
To add to this do not overlook the shipping and tax duties when comparing prices to foreign sources.

It is not fair for buyers to directly compare to foreign sources as if they are just next door and complain that prices here are high. Do not forget to include all expenses when canvassing.

As for me the simplest tip I can offer to newbies is: Seek advice! :wink:

One more thing...

Make sure that what you are buying, "Specially high-end and other branded items", are authentic. Meaning they are the real thing and not just cheap immitations. We all know, almost all branded things these days can be easily copied...

Also, make sure that when a seller is selling you used items, you know if its 3rd hand or 2nd hand. So can have a brief idea of the price. Some people buy stuff as second hand and then sell it as second hand but the price is higher than how much the seller got it. Just so everybody will be aware.

Basta trust yourself...pag nagdududa ka, then dun ka magtanong sa mga friends mo na alam yung product or find other sources from the net.
Wag din bili ng bili...kung susundin mo lang yun sarili mo jan, maniwala ka, di ka matatapos. hahaha!

Tapos sa maga nagbebenta naman, oks naman kumita, di masama yun, pero sana wag lang sobra sobra, mahirap ang mga musikero...walang pera dito.

At yung iba din, kung di niyo naman talaga alam yung sinasabi niyo, eh di tahimik nalang, mahirap magmarunong marunong, madami kasi tayo pwede ma confuse dun.

At sana maging patas sa lahat ng bagay...walang gamitan ng kapit o pwersa.

Magmahalan, Respeto at Pagtutulungan ang dapat natin itaguyod sa PInoydrums. Mabuhay tayong lahat. We are the world! wahahahaha! :lol:

that's right.
Newbee rin ako.
But kahit na baguhan ka ay dapat marunong kang tumuingin ng mga gamit. you should know the things, items, accessories, spares that you should buy. Pagaralang mabuti yung mga bibilhin mo, kung medyo nalilito sa gamit, pwede ka namang magtanong sa mga kaibigan mo at syempre dito sa Philmusic.  :-D :-D

always check the availability of the spare parts, kung nagpoproduce parin sa market.

hope that this will help.

- In judging on whether or not something sounds good, don't rely on description of sounds. Try stuff out first before you commit to buy. In checking out the gear, bring along a friend who's experienced.

- Info on gear that artists use is a useful start for info on the question "what [insert gear here] sounds good for [insert music here]".

- "More expensive gear" does not mean "better sounding gear", nor does it mean "most appropriate gear for your music". This wisdom is important when gassing for something (haha).

- Take time to do research. The internet is your friend. :)

Don't buy drums if you're into guitars.   :-D  I eventually sold mine because it just gathered dust.

Better buy 2nd hand, high-end, so you get better re-sale value.  Wag tumulad saken.  I bought a cheap-ass, brand new set, only to sell it at less than half the original price.   :|

PAENGS SELECTING A CYMBAL HOW TO:  :-D

- Listen how it sounds NEAR and FAR (about 20Ft.). The sound WILL VARY/CHANGE if the listener is near or far from the set.

- Select different types of cymbals (Specially in crash cymbal). It is better to have DIFFERENT VOICES of cymbals than hitting different cymbals with the SAME VOICE.

- Look at the BELL SIZE of the cymbal. Usually, the bigger the BELL, the more DENGGGgg it sounds. The smaller the bell the more WEEIISHHHH it sounds.

- The heavier or thicker the bell, the more DARKER it sound. Thin/light cymbals is for the WOOOUUUSHHHH sound. (parang splash).

- In testing the cymbal, hit it in all places (bell, edge, mid, bell+neck of stick, edge+neck of the stick, etc). This way, you can hear all the VOICES that the cymbal has. This is important because this will determine if the cymbal has a SWEET SPOT! (or G SPOT) hehehehe :-D

FINALLY, MAG YOUTUBE or magGOOGLE ka for more info!  :lol:

a couple of things come to mind:

-- of course, "needs" first before "wants" -- they're almost always different :-)
-- availability of spare parts
-- after sales service -- importante to kasi after mo gumastos ng malaki tapos maiiwan ka na lang pala mag-isa
-- trying the items personally is the best kasi mahirap i-ensure yugn pagkakapare-parehas ng tunog na lalabas -- ang daming factors
-- research, research and research...

Just buy what you need  :-) buying drum stuff is an investment!!! so spend wisely! what i do is, when I buy a drum product 2md hand or brand new, I make sure that I use it and earn the money I spent on the product. That way parang nabawe mo na investment mo. Hindi mura ang equipment natin.. :mrgreen: (did i make sense?)

Rock!

pag isipan kung ano talaga ang gusto mong "sound", lalo na pag sa cymbals. make an outline of what you want to buy in the long-run. kung may idea ka na, arrange mo kung alin mga uunahin mo at alin yung long-term.

ako kasi may plan na ako kung ano yung mga gamit na kelangan ko. pag nakuha ko na lahat yun, di na ko bibili pa e. kasi alam kong hanggang yun nalang yung kelangan ko. unless of course may mag regalo sakin, or may mas magandang equivalent, etc. and even then, i would think twice about it.

pangit din kasi yung bili ka lang ng bili ng kahit anong trip mo. marami ka ngang gamit, e may naipon ka bang pera?

Kung bago ka pa lang talaga sa pagbili ng drum items, better visit JB, Audiophile, Perfect Pitch, Lyric, and The Music Source/Hi-Fi lounge.

High quality products nila at malawak ang range ng prices. Malaking tulong din na may alam yung mga sales peeps dun.

hanap ka ng IDOL then gayahin mo setup nya! hehehe..

I suggest you invest in good cymbals.. Kasi mabebenta mo naman yun nang magandang presyohan.

suggest ko din (kung METAL ka!)..

1) buy DROP CLUTCH for the HI HAT.. ito yung pinapalo at bibitaw ang top hihat.. para maka double-kick ka! (650 to 800 lang to men. gibraltar pa ang brand). Tapakan mo ulit yung hihat at kakgatin nya ulit yung top hihat. Ayus to men.

2) Kung may drop clutch kana.. Buy Double-kick or twin-pedal. (Gibraltar price is about 6,500 last year price).

3) Hwag kang bibili ng CRAPPY (China made) Cymbal stand. humangin lang ng konti or mapalo mo ng mali ay tutumba na yun! Ang pangit pa ng itchura. hehehe.. dagdag kalang ng mga 600 GIBRALTAR na mabibili mo.

HWAG NA HWAG KANG BIBILI NG CHINA MADE CRAPPY ITEMS. madaling masira at ang badtrip pa nyan. Baga sa GIG mismo bumigay yon! hehehe...

I'm planning to buy a kit, which brand do you think is the best? May tinutugtugan po kasi ako Pearl na export series ang bilis nag loose nung mga screw ng hardware.

Ano po pinaka ok dito, yamaha, tama o sonor?

If you could advise any other brand which you think is better ok din po!

Budget would be around 40Kto 60K.

Thanks and God Bless!

Might as well get a Pearl Vison Series drums from JB. Thay have a variety of Vison Series depending on the type of wood used. HW from Pearl doesn't get that loose unless battered and abused. It really depends from the user on how he plays and takes care of the kit.  JB is also on sale right now so you might want to check them out.  :wink:

Post by: metalmuhlisha on October 04, 2008, 01:27:31 AM
at that price range, i'd go for a TAMA (great finishes) or a MAPEX (may libreng black panther snare)

copied+pasted from black_panther's multiply:

Quote
Mapex promo

20% off on m birch  and pro maple models plus an optional free black panther 12" cherry snare (worth 11,495) or a Stagg y253 cymbal set (worth 10,995)

20%off on VX limited edition, VX jazz kit, VX standard plus a free Stagg y253 cymbal set (worth 10,995)

Mapex Drum set buyers during the promo period can get a 20% discount on their next purchase of any Stagg Cymbals or Mapex Products. They just need to show receipt of proof of purchase.

Well as you can see on the post everyone here is telling you that you go for Tama superstar the strongest name on drums... if your budget is 60k shoot na shoot na sa Tama superstar custom laquered finish plus discount pa... you can get that below 60k... you will not get disappointed on the hardwares dahil Road-pro series hardwares na ang gamit ng superstar. The one that they used on starclassic series.... plus die-cast hoops already... you can check that on this link...

http://www.tamadrum.co.jp/world/distributors/frame_philippines.html

you will see the difference.... compare to other drum kits.... but still it's your choice but choose wisely.... god bless.....
Title: Re: First Time Gear Buyer Questions Here!
Post by: paeng16 on October 04, 2008, 09:00:39 AM
sa 60K budget..

Pwede ka mag gretch, pearl, tama, Ludwig etc. Pero consider mo muna to.

1) Cymbals < mahal to at baka mawalan ka nang budget for this babies.
2) Skins or bater heads. (yung mga nasa new drums kasi 1 ply lang, pag narinig mo yung mga pinstipe ma papawow ka men.).
3) double-kick or twin-pedal. < mga 7k to 8K din to. iba na kasi yung may ABANG na double-kick sa single kick eh. Kasi less than a year (for newbies) magsasawa ka sa single kick at hahanap ka din ng double-kick.
4) THRONE - a good throne like gibralter cost about 3K. Men importante ito kahit sinong drummer will agree.

So given all those things and with 60K budget, i'd go for...
1) ludwig(birch)  8,12,13,16 toms with conversion kit this is under 40K sa JB with ZBT cymbals na to.
2) Buy double-kick na gibraltar (mga 7K to 8K).
3) Gibraltar throne (3K).
4) Zildian K 12" Splash + gibraltar boom (mga 7K itong 2)
5) sukli pang PEGASUS (kasi konti nalang eh) hehehe..

That is my best estimate for the "PRESENTLY" available drum sets sa JB. AudioPhile madami ding TAMA.

Sa set na yan, you can play almost anything (metal, pop, rock, jazz, etc). Ang haba pa ng ROLLING mo (kasi 4 toms) at yan Splash K mo.. MA-AARAWS KA (hhehe).. Yung double-kick... well dagdag sa SKILL mo yan..

Additional Info...

Pag maganda ang drum set mo..
1) Gaganahan kang mag practice..
2) Kapag pangit ang sound, alam mong ikaw ang sablay at hindi yung set! hehe  :-D
3) Kahit dalhin mo sa gig, hindi ka mahihiya (kick @$$ tong set na to eh).
4) Your skill will develop faster, kasi walang problema yung set mo eh. Ikaw ang may sablay hehehe.
5) yung matirang pera, buy mo sa ACE Hardware ng mga rubber mat para pang mute. (300 lang to men) yung evans na mute kasi nasa 3K <<< Mahal  :-o

3. may klase ba ng drums na better pang-babae? o pare-pareho lang naman?

1) Better buy in-the-middle or after your lessons. Look for a set that you like and ask your teacher about it.
2) 15K to 20K budget... hmmm... hindi ba kaya 25K? sa 25K kasi ok na makukuha mong set.
3) Fusion set (or as I call it Wierd set) yung 10" 12" 14" toms. It's not so LOUD as the traditional set 12,13,16 toms. (Naka Fusion ako FYI)  :-D

- Either get fusion and add a 16" Tom or traditional set and get 10" or ROTO TOMS hehehe. it works naman. pero I really suggest fusion set.

P.S. Hwag kang bibili ng DDRUMS.. or Kung gusto mo talaga ng DDRUMS.. Check mo yung mga HARDWARE or yung mga BAKAL.. Kasi madaling PUMUTOK or MAGCRACK yung mga yon at WALANG REPLACEMENT PARTS ANG MGA YUN. :wink:
Title: Re: First Time Gear Buyer Questions Here!

oic. tnx po. brand po ba yung fusion?


sir, mas maganda po kung mag sonor nalang po kayo. mas madali po kayung matututo kapag mas maganda ang mga gamit. i think sonor 505 ata yung 17k dun sa raon pero pwedeng pwede pa po tawaran. tapos yung sukli dagdagan niyo nalang po ng mga 2-3k may planet Z na po kayo. Decent na po pang practice. sulit pa po yung sonor kasi Remo na po lahat ng skins nun and yung mga hardware talagang durable. ayus din naman po yung fernando kaya lang 20k vs. 17k? wow.. i think mas maganda po ang sonor. opinion and advice lang po.. :-D

how about yung tinutukoy nya dito? ok ba to? and may nabasa din ako na TAMA brand for less than 20k? ok po ba yun? tnx!

make it at least 25k, you can get a decent brand new brnaded drumset at that price range  something serious, tinry lang ako turuan ng kuya ko but hindi na natuloy.

TAMA for less than 20K is WOOOW!! hehehe...

Mga kapatid i'd like to inform you that TAMA kit is not that expensive.... We have a starter kit.... Imperialstar set.... You can check out the price on store nationwide.... We used to have a 25k drumkit but that was already a discontinued model.... The Stagestar series... It's a very small kit.. Now we have the Imperialstar kit and comes with the complete set of stand.... If you have any inquiry just call me at 588-0919.... Thanks.....

oh I see. (na excite pa naman ako!) hehehe.

during your lesson/training. Mostlikely you'd be using the standard set (12" 13" 16" toms). From there, you can determine and have a 1st hand feel of what a standard set will be like.

Then when you're familiar with the standard set, try Fusion set (10" 12" 14" toms). then you can clearly decide which works better or feels and sounds better for you.

Big toms leads to loud sound, thus, heavy metal is good for standard sets. While Fusion toms are more pop, jazzy like feel. Hope this helps and good luck!  wink

ok thanks. sana madami pako mabasang inputs. thanks again!

My Newbie experience (hope you can get more info from this)

Idol ko si Lars Ulrich ng Metallica pero I started as a guitar player in music (actually Pioano kasi bata palang ako gi-ne-GAY ata ako ng nanay ko eh!) ehhehehe.

After reaching my peak sa guitar, I then moved to Drums and idolize Lars Ulrich.

So I went Window-shopping and found 8K crappy drum set. This is fine with me (at first) pero I find it "wasting" 8K kung yun ang bibilin ko. So I increase my budget and ended sa DDRUM na worth 26K.

The night nang unuwi ko yung set, syempre setup ko agad (excited kasi ako hehe). During setting up, naBASAG yung lock nung Floor TOM  :| . So the following day, sinabi ko sa JB at papalitan daw nila. pero they also told me na "Sir next time dahan dahan lang po ang pag lock para di mabasag yung iba".

So binigyan nila ako ng replacement which is DIFFERENT COLOR and MADE  :-o. So I find it "NOT ACCEPTABLE". After discussing it with JB people. I then decided to change to "Pearl Forum". naging 32K na hehehe.. Pero wala akong trouble sa hardware and it sounded better sa DDRUM.

Yung DDRUM ko is Standard Set while yung Pearl forum is Fusion Set. This is why I told you before, try mo muna yung 2 set and then decided. (which I decided to get Fusion set).

OK, now that I have my set, PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE hanggang naka buo na ako ng mga favorite songs ko. hehehe. At since nagimprove na yung drumming skills ko (thanks to YouTube and the movies I got from there). Gusto ko i-upgrade yung set ko.

So I got the following;
1) Gibraltar Double-pedal
2) HiHat Drop Clutch
3) Change my skins to REMO PINSTRIP and Emperor X for the snare.
4) Bought 12" K Splash, 14" & 18" China, 14" ZBT Crash and 16" A Custom medium crash.
5) Extra cymbal stands.

Moreover, when I bought the splash cymbal. 1st I bought the 10" A Custom splash. Kinabukasan sinoli at pinapalitan ko ng K 12"kasi hindi ko type yung tunog sa JB. Which the good people in JB accepted din.  :-D

Now I am playing more complicated pieces like TOTO, old school heavy metal like Metallica Megadeth, etc.,

Now I am looking for a 16" Floor tom para mahaba haba ang rolling at mas heavy (kung kailangan) ang tom beats.

Moral of my story is..

1) Stay away from crappy items and always compare the prices with New and 2nd hand items. kasi kung konti lang ang difference eh sa New kana. May WARRANTY PA!

And in the first place, ask your self..  BAKIT BINEBENTA YUNG 2nd hand?
A) maybe may mas maganda sa market?
B) Maybe hindi nagustuhan nung unang mayari.
C) Maybe may damage na.
D) etc etc...

2) Buy using your ear or how you feel. Hwag yung sa TINGIN lang! Music is listening not looking right?!  :-D

3) Go for GOOD or HIGH Quality items. kasi kung mag sawa ka or plano mo nang ibenta. MAGANDA ang RESALE value nya kesa sa mga crappy items.

Hope this helps and let me know kung kelan kita sasamahan ah!  :roll: hehehe :-D

My Newbie experience (hope you can get more info from this)

Idol ko si Lars Ulrich ng Metallica pero I started as a guitar player in music (actually Pioano kasi bata palang ako gi-ne-GAY ata ako ng nanay ko eh!) ehhehehe.

After reaching my peak sa guitar, I then moved to Drums and idolize Lars Ulrich.

So I went Window-shopping and found 8K crappy drum set. This is fine with me (at first) pero I find it "wasting" 8K kung yun ang bibilin ko. So I increase my budget and ended sa DDRUM na worth 26K.

The night nang unuwi ko yung set, syempre setup ko agad (excited kasi ako hehe). During setting up, naBASAG yung lock nung Floor TOM  :| . So the following day, sinabi ko sa JB at papalitan daw nila. pero they also told me na "Sir next time dahan dahan lang po ang pag lock para di mabasag yung iba".

So binigyan nila ako ng replacement which is DIFFERENT COLOR and MADE  :-o. So I find it "NOT ACCEPTABLE". After discussing it with JB people. I then decided to change to "Pearl Forum". naging 32K na hehehe.. Pero wala akong trouble sa hardware and it sounded better sa DDRUM.

di ko naintindihan ibang specs/terms na sinabi mo, di bali malalaman ko lahat yan in time.

btw, guys ano ibig sabihin ng 5pcs with hardware? tnx

Post by: sjon014 on October 09, 2008, 10:48:26 AM
Heheh, granted, medyo nosebleed nga siguro yung mga sinabi ni sir paeng, pero sort it out and read through it. It's good advice. :-D

Hardware refers to the mounting equipment and other stuff (i.e. malalaking piraso ng bakal) you need to put the drumkit together and start playing! (Except cymbals hahah)

A standard 5-pc drumset with hardware means:
Five actual drums:
-Snare drum
-Three toms (commonly 12", 13", and 16" -or- 10", 12", and 14")
-One bass drum

Hardware:
-Snare stand
-Bass Pedal
-Tom holder/s
-Hi-hat stand
-Straight or boom cymbal stand/s

If you happen to see something labled as "5-piece shell pack" though, no hardware is included. Just the drums.

Sorry sa Nose bleed post ko!  :lol:

Anyways, I went last night sa JB Mega and found they have Pearl Target Under 20K color maroonish. nice yun. (yan ah! kina-kanvas na kita!  :-D)

If you happen to drop by sa JB Music Megamall, look for Nelson (the drum doctor) and tell him na "GF" kita!  :-D  or Good Friend  :wink:

Don't worry, I will look sa AudioPhile Pioneer branch at sa Yamaha Megamall.

Well, usually wala talagang kasama - pero may stock brass (low-end) cymbals lang in the case of Pearl and Tama Imperialstars. But I've seen JB, Yupangco, and Forerunner package cymbal sets as a sort of "promo". See for yourself when you visit the stores. For example: (sa JB, in their big yellow info tags)

Gretsch Blackhawk 5-pc Set w/ hardware plus FREE ZBT Pro 4 4-pc cymbals. Reg price: 45,000 Sale price: 38,000
(sample lang yung prices)

Ayun, they "package" some of their drums with entry-level cymbal packs. By the way, these packs come in "three-piece" and "four-piece". Three-piece means you have Hi-Hats, and a Crash-Ride. Four-Piece means you have Hi-hats, a separate Crash, and a separate Ride.

If I were you though, I'd inquire about drumset prices without cymbal packs - so I can buy the cymbals separately. :-D

// COPY-PASTE from the other thread // :wink:

sa 60K budget..

Pwede ka mag gretch, pearl, tama, Ludwig etc. Pero consider mo muna to.

1) Cymbals < mahal to at baka mawalan ka nang budget for this babies.
2) Skins or bater heads. (yung mga nasa new drums kasi 1 ply lang, pag narinig mo yung mga pinstipe ma papawow ka men.).
3) double-kick or twin-pedal. < mga 7k to 8K din to. iba na kasi yung may ABANG na double-kick sa single kick eh. Kasi less than a year (for newbies) magsasawa ka sa single kick at hahanap ka din ng double-kick.
4) THRONE - a good throne like gibralter cost about 3K. Men importante ito kahit sinong drummer will agree.

So given all those things and with 60K budget, i'd go for...
1) ludwig(birch)  8,12,13,16 toms with conversion kit this is under 40K sa JB with ZBT cymbals na to.
2) Buy double-kick na gibraltar (mga 7K to 8K).
3) Gibraltar throne (3K).
4) Zildian K 12" Splash + gibraltar boom (mga 7K itong 2)
5) sukli pang PEGASUS (kasi konti nalang eh) hehehe..

That is my best estimate for the "PRESENTLY" available drum sets sa JB. AudioPhile madami ding TAMA.

Sa set na yan, you can play almost anything (metal, pop, rock, jazz, etc). Ang haba pa ng ROLLING mo (kasi 4 toms) at yan Splash K mo.. MA-AARAWS KA (hhehe).. Yung double-kick... well dagdag sa SKILL mo yan..

x-trek din kasi nakalagay sa heads nya tapos yung remo nasa ilallim lang.
bago palang din kaya wala rin gaano alam pagdating sa mga teknikal na aspeto.
tapos meron dito sa amin inaalok lazer naman (12k) may kasama ng ride yung planet Z pero yung hi hats at crash niya stock, pero remo na head nung snare nya. medyo naguguluhan po kasi ako eh, maraming salamat po  mabuhay po kayo.

Agreed. X-trek, Lazer (lowends) and other China-made generics are almost identical. Standard rock sizes. Old-style tom mounting. Double-braced but light hardware. Same with old Fernandos, LA Drums, etc. I suggest you take a look at DDrums (be wary of hardware issues though) or the newer Fernandos.

If not, you could score a good kit if you're patient enough at the Classifieds. Damn, like richie's Tama Superstar shell pack for 15k, SOLD just mere hours after he posted it.@_@

TOL

1) Yung Catalina ba ay 10" 12" 14" 16" tom? or 8" 10" 12" 14" tom?
2) Yung Superstar ba ay 12" 13" 16" tom? (Standard set).
3) Same wood ba yung Catalina at Superstar?? (maple, birch)?

Now let me share my experience (may mapupulot kang araw dito!) hehehe.

Set ko ay Pearl Forum (Fusion Kit = 10" 12" 14" toms). So after some time, I realize the STYLE OF PLAY na gusto ko. Somewhat JEFF PORCARO (TOTO) na LARS ULRICH(METALLICA).

Jeff Porcaro set is (10"12"13"14" toms)
Lars Ulrich (Presently using 10" 12" 16" 16" toms.)

So, bumili ako ng 16" TOM na hindi kakulay nang set ko kasi wala talaga eh (Which is a really PAIN IN THE @$$ to find, Ganun din naman pag bibili ako ng 13" na TOM).

Anyways, now ang set ko at 10" 12" 14" 16" toms. 

OR

CATALINA SET na! hehehe.. (dapat pala CATALINA SET NALANG BINILI KO FROM THE START!)  :-D

Moral of the story is...
1) Mahirap mag hanap nang additional TOM.
2)Your should know your style of play. (heavy metal ba? Jazz? pop? Rock?) Standard set ay medyo MALAKAS ang tunog. So "MAS" maganda ang Fusion set or smaller toms sa mga pop, jazz etc.


In ending, kung yung Catalina set sa JB ay 8" 10" 12" 14". I'd go for the standard set ng TAMA. Kasi bumili ka lang ng roto-toms sa standard set ayus na eh. Pero kung 10" 12" 14" 16" yung catalina sa JB. Men by all means, ito na ang bilhin mo!

By the way, meron Ludwig na Birch wood na 40K din sa JB Music ah. Birch ito men at malayong mas maganda sa Maple. Check mo din ito men. Ayus ito.

Hope this helps..  :wink:

2. Yung Superstar, 12" 16" 30k
3. Catalina Ash - Ash, Superstar - Birch+Basswood (not sure)

Yung sa Superstar, bitin sakin kung 2 toms lang e. Yung Catalina Ash naman, 6 piece na agad may cymbals pa @40k. Anong model yung sa ludwig chief?

(Kwento ako ulit at share ko experience ko! hehehe)

Pearl Forum is Maple wood. While yung nabili kong additional 16" Floor tom ay WTF wood.

Pero...

Nung linagyan ko nang REMO PINSTRIPE yung 16" Floor tom.

NAHABOL YUNG SOUND at hindi obyus na WTF WOOD sha! hehehe..  :-D

Pearl Forum Series Drums are made of  6 ply 7.5mm poplar shells. Even the discontinued and the most sold Pearl drum around the world, the Export series was made of poplar shells. The latest edition of the Pearl Forum Series, Forum FZ are still made of poplar shells. Recent upgrades with this kit are just the 'ISS' for both 12'' and 13'' toms which was acquired from the late export series, an additonal C70W cymbal stand for the additonal Pearl crash cymbal(previous forum series only has a boomstand B70W to hold a pearl crash/ride cymbal) and the drum pedal which was upgraded from P-120 to P-120P.   :wink:

bro wag ka maturn off kasi hindi lang basta "poplar" yan. hindi lang naman yung kahoy ang bumubuo sa drum...

nung mangini clinic, magkatabi ang isang vision at reference tapos sabay ginamit. mas nakakaturn off yung reference kasi mas malayo yung price difference nya sa vision tapos halos walang difference sa tunog yung mga toms at bass. yes maganda yung snare nung reference pero makakabili ka ng 4 super duper high end snare at isang vision sa presyo ng reference tapos may pambili ka pa ng high end cymbals  :-D

kung ang habol mo sa drums e yung tunog, entry level kits now are pretty much built the same way as high end drums. sa hardware na lang talaga nagkakatalo

tama ito. kung ako tanungin, mas magandang maginvest sa magandang cymbals, snare, hardware tsaka heads kesa sa high end kit. ang cymbals at snare kasi, rinig agad ang pagkaiba ng low end, midlevel, tsaka high end. eh sa drums naman, basta matino ang heads, tuning, tsaka bearing edge (let's go peeves!), maganda na rin ang tunog.

Do not under estimate Poplar wood as it produces great sound as well, I barely notice the difference between Maple and Poplar on some of my drums. I totally agree with what Peeves and Plep said, to invest in cymbals, good drum heads, and for me to add invest on lessons.. :wink:

Anyways, yung last post ko is the same.

Pearl popsmear wood  :cry:  + 16" WTF wood  /Pinstripe = Same sound.


Hmmm.... that's kind a strange. All of a sudden he's selling his drum kit at the classified section. Is it because that he found out that a Pearl Forum kit was made of poplar shells?  :?

If you are a beginner, first of all be sure you are serious about the commitment in learning. WIll you stick with it? 2nd of all buy drums that are functional. Look at the hardware. The metal pieces on the drums basically. If its a used kit does it look rusted out? Are there pieces missing? Does it look like cheap plastic painted with silver paint for the lugs? You'd be suprised what garbage is out there and who would love to sell it to you. Drum shells? Best thing to realize is that drum stores will try and tell you shells are evetything when it comes to you sounding good. Not true. It's all in buying decent drum heads, learning how to tune without pillows tape and all the other garbage. Most importantly if you learn how to play and hit the drums right then whether you have birch, maple or fiberglass shells you will have YOUR sound. SO buy drums with decent strong durable hardware. Cymbals are just something you develope taste for over time. FUnctionality and durability of hardware is the key.
Title: Re: First Time Gear Buyer Questions Here!
Post by: drumchile on November 02, 2008, 08:22:04 AM
Basically buy whatever cheap brand you can find with strong hardware that doesnt look too cheap. If you buy something really bad and it will rust or break. Even just a cheap pearl export or fernando kit. Dont but expensive cymbals. Cymbals preference will increase as experience comes. Later he or she can buy the cymbals he really prefers. Decent heads and proper tuning without tape and pillows etc will determine how the kit sounds. Also technique development. How he or she hits the drums in context to tuning etc. I wouldnt go too deep into the shell talk. Yes maple kind of sounds different than birch and etc etc, but tuning, head choice and playing have most to do with having a good sound. Developing an original sound. If the student learns that concept from the start from a real teacher, then he is good to go. Just my opinon.

di yata praktikal topagbasihan  kasi kung yung price lang diyan pagbabasihan w/ out the importing fees, luge mga seller.. mahal yata i import or i ship ang drum items dito lalo na cymbals ang bigat bigat talo sa UPS or FEDEX hehe i remember nung bumili ako nung isang set ng B8 cymbal (14" hats, 16" crash, 20" ride) set w/ free 18" crash and cymbal bag just for 215$. i bought it dahil sobrang nice deal then nung ipinapa ship ko na papunta dito sa pinas from my cousin sa california nasa 210-230$ ang shipping using UPS or FEDEX nyahahaha naghinaty na lang tuloy ako ng mag ha hand carry

alala ko pa nung bumili ako ng yamaha 12x5 na wood snare worth $180 sa musiciansfriend since di sila nag shi ship dito pinadala ko rin sa pinsan ko from calif. using johnny air. i remember 2800-3000 pesos ang binayaran ko sa johhny air megamall branch para i release yung item ko

Im not a professional, but tingin ko if starting kit lang ang hanap mo mura na yung 12k, pero smartest move pasama ka sa professional before buying the kit, pa test mo sa kanya para malaman mo kung ok pa ung set.

have a set of choices tapos elimination technique nalang.hehe

kapag noob tpos sigurado ka naman na seseryosohin mo, go for the good quality(base sa mga reviews, feedbacks, at sa mga pinagtanungan mo), magtatagal kasi yon.
at minsan kasi un brand name na yung binabayaran mo not the quality. meron kayong mahahanap na items or kits na hindi kasing sikat ng ano pero maganda talaga yung quality. tapos dapat may idea ka na kun anong type of drummer ka na, kung jazz, rock etc. para yung bibilin mong item or kit e swak na agad sa taste mo at mas masarap mag enjoy.

lastly huwag mag madali. magtanong muna ng magtanong ng magtanong hangang makapag decide ka na.

bat di mo nalang ipunin yung perang yan para makaipon para makabili ka ng kit? may bangko naman e kung takot ka magastos yung pera mo.

at siguro, lalo na kung high school ka palang, pag nakita yan ng mga nag-aalaga sayo, matutuwa yung mga yun pag nakita nilang gusto mo talaga ng kit at masinop ka sa pera. malamang wala ka pa sa kalahati ng pinag-iipunan mo, nabilhan ka na nila ng kit. hehe.

Ewan ko kung nakikita ninyong importante to.

Before you buy drums, make sure may paglalagyan na sha, sa place ng bahay niyo na pwede kang pumalo ng pumalo ng walang magagalit na kapitbahay. or sa studio, or sa lugar na mejo soundproof.

as for my experience, meron na akong at least two people na kilala ko na bumili ng drums only to sell it kase hindi nila magamit dahil pigil na pigil ang pagpalo nila kase nagagalit ang kapitbahay.

one of the reasons why hindi pa ako bumibili ng drums kase wala pa akong studio. pero magkakaroon na ako someday. mejo iniisip ko pa kung paparentahan ko or personal studio lang.

Yup, oks din ang Stagg, kaso ang problema eh hindi consistent ang sound ng cymbals. May maganda at may sobrang pangit ang tunog. Mabuti na lang at hinahayaan ng staff ng store nila na subukan ang bawat cymbal. At makakapili ka ng gusto mong tunog.

Kailangan mo na ba talaga bumili ngayon?
Wala akong marerekomenda sa mga options mo dahil hindi sila maganda sound-wise.

Ipon ka pa ng konti (around P7,000) at may Istanbul Mehmet cymbal pack ka na.

sa opinion ko sir, ok yung splashes nung sh at thin crash nila, ung 16" at 17". nakatry na rin ako nung hihat nila. ayos rin. comparable sya i think sa zht at xs20. hindi ko pa nattry yung ride nung sh eh. basta try mo muna bago mo kunin kasi minsan meron talaga na hindi ganun kaganda tumunog sa stagg. ok rin ung price nung b8 ride pero gaya ng sbi ni sir gep, try mo pa tawaran, tutal pinsan mo nman. :-D Tsaka check mo rin kung walang dents or cracks.

@paeng16:

A little of topic.  I just can't help but react on this after reading the entire thread.

No offense meant bro but it seems that you are confusing newbies here rather than helping. I understand you only meant to help and that is appreciated but it seems that you yourself is a little misinformed about your own kit. You admitted that you can hardly tell the difference between a Poplar shell and an Ash while owning a Pearl Forum and thinking all the time that it was made out of Maple? Then you also gave an advice to one to pick Ash over a Maple shell because it sound better? Hmmm...quite confusing views there my friend. :? I owned a Pearl Forum myself (FZ Series) and I am familiar with it from the shell material to the hardware just because I did my research before buying it. After playing with it for a week, I realized the snare had a problem and can't be tuned no matter what I do. It turned out the bearing edge has problems. I decided to return it and upgraded to a Gretsch Catalina Maple. I paid a lot more but it was well worth it. Maple shells are normally more expensive than Ash. Does it sound better? Well, as anyone would say, it all depends on your taste but if you will base it on the price category, Maple is of higher value. My point is, let us not try to influence others of what they should and shouldn't buy. What sounds good for us may sound like crap to others. Like any art form, music/sound is very subjective. What we should try here is just point them to the right direction on where and what is available to them at all price range. I know some here get too carried away with their kits to a point of sounding like fan boys and I don't blame them, besides, we all should be proud of our priced possessions. But we also should be very responsible and avoid recklessness when giving advice specially to the ones new to the world of drumming as it might confuse them more.

Now back to regular programming.

Cheers.

anu bang hanap mo sa kit kung sakali? what type of genre are you playing? kung 14k pababa ang budget mu for drums? mas maganda siguro kung bili ka ng lowend na drums(just make sure na ok ang hardware. <lugs, hoops,etc>) then upgrade the heads, buy decent hardwares like pearl or gibraltar. wala naman kasi sa brand yun eh. kahit USA pa yan or china,  (AFAIK there's no locally made drums yet). The biggest factor eh yung magpapatunog. and yung kaya niyang gawin para mapaganda ang tunog:-D

hindi din big deal if you bought your drums brand new or second hand. as long as it is in good condition. and sanay ka mag alaga sa tambol mu.

uu nga. :? unnailed. di ko maisusuggest ang ddrums unless looks lang talaga ang habol mo at brand conscious ka. :? kaso di pa din talaga eh. same wood lang yung mga nakikita mong ddrums sa fernando/generic lowends. pinagkaiba lang ata yung mounting system niya. yung lugs eh same din sa generic. kung bibili ka ng "brand new" na ddrums, at magpapalit ka ng lugs, isipin mu yung magagastos sa lugs na sana maipangbibili mu na lang ng ibang gears.

Cav eto lang basehan men..

1) matibay ba ang hardware na bibilhin mo??
2) Madali bang i-tono yung kit (kasi pag hindi madali itono, badtrip na kit yan and may indicate damaged lugs etc)
3) RESALE value... ok ba resale nyan after 3 to 5 years?? 

in addition... I'd go sa NEW set kesa sa second hand... atleast ikaw unang bumanat dun!!  :roll:   hahaha...

Are you considering Fernando? May sinamahan ako last month bumili nito sa JB, ung drums lang without PlanetZ, around 11k lang.
Maganda ung hardwares, di lang kasing kapal nung gibraltar or pearls, pero ok na din sya.
The rest of your budget - 17k - you can start easily with ZBT4, sobra pa yan. Or hunting ka ng 2nd hand dito. Dami dyan!
Happy hunting!

plan ko, electronic drums na lang yung bilhin ko para sa church, tutal, para controlled yung sound and mabalance yung music blending.

paki sulat naman po yung CONS and PRO ng acoustic drums VS electronic drums. Pati po yung lahat ng kailangan sa electric drums, I'm not familiar with its set-up eh.

Hi guys,

i've tried the search function several times but all i was getting was "disabled due to high server load" so i figured out might as well post it here.

its my first time to buy a double bass pedal. i've already set my sight and budget on a certain brand and model. i plan to use this on my e-drums first and later on, on my project acoustic kit. i have a couple of questions though:

position of the beaters? ung master ba is at dead center while the slave is slightly on the left or parehas silang off-center? same position on an e-drum kit?

also, i imagined i'd be going like "dugugugugugugugugudug" on this thing, is it advisable to use a falam patch? pati sa e-drums?

Thanks.  :-)

Title: Re: First Time Gear Buyer Questions Here!
Post by: daleee on January 03, 2010, 01:52:42 PM
yeah, ako rin off center para atleast parehas sila ng tunog... kasi kung isa lang ang dead center, yung isang beater ang may dalang mas maraming overtones...  :-D

sa electronic drums, it doesnt matter if your beaters are dead center or off-center and you dont need a falam patch.

sa acoustic, it matters a lot. kapag centered yung master pedal, palaging fuller at bigger yung tunog nya kesa slave so you have to position both slightly off center

choice between sonor, fernando and tama. ano magandang kit un around 25k lng. and if possible un may matinong basic cymbals na rin, hehe

Walang TAMA na 25K lang hehehe. Tapos kung need mo may cymbals na sa 25K budget, walang ganon na Sonor. Kaya fernando na lang ang babagsakan mo. So no choice ka na. :-D

^ok na yung regal tip kung ok lang sayo yung tunog nung pad. medyo maingay e.

pero kung hindi, try mo vic firth 1500 ata sa lyric. or aquarian tru-bounce (the best) sa sound essentials.

^nalimutan ko na kung magkano e. pero mas mahal siya konti kesa sa vic firth. sa sound essentials lang meron nun. sm moa yung isang branch nila yung iba ewan ko kung nasan.

dapat yun yung bibilhin ko kaso nung nagtanong ako dati walang stock, kaya nagpabili nalang ako ng vic firth pad sa ibang bansa (dati pa to, hindi pa handle ng lyric vic firth nun)

btw yung 1500 ata na vic firth pad yung 6" yun. i use the 12" version.

If I were you, I'd go for the sonor force 507. entry level ng tama (the latest pero di ko sure kung may stock sa mga audiophile) is yung imperial star. di rin ako sure sa price.

stacker is yung kinakabit sa usually sa Ride.
sa JB music mga around 1.2k more or less yun. (Gibraltar)

Boom stand. idea lang nagtanong ako sa Manila Music sa Raon pearl boom stand sabi nila 2.8k
pero para sure bisitahin mo.

Mapex Q series   vs    Sonor Force 507

thanks in advance...

ang best po ay puntahan nyo nalng sa store ng JB, kasi minsan may discount.
sa Audiophile naman puntahan mo nrin po kasi di ko rin makita sa site nila yung mga prices.  :-D



@soul reversal

Sonor 507 or Mapex Q.

dati pinagpilian ko rin yan. ang first choice ko personally Sonor 507 sana. kasi naka sale cya ng 22,750 sa JB at Manila Music(Raon)
with cymbals na planetZ. "h-hat + CrashRide(ata)" . lumalabas kasi n 6k ata yung brand new yung planetZ 3pcs. less mo sa 22,750. tipid na diba. well package mo lang cya pedeng bilhin.

Hardware (hindi ako nakagamit ng Sonor 507 kaya di ko masabi)
pero some of drummers ok the to. I think this is the entry level of Sonor, pero di ka talo sa hardware according sa ibang drummer(s).
1 cymbal stand.
i forgot if may throne n kasama yun.

Sound (i have this link for you)


ikaw n humusga.  :-D



for MApex Q naman. (eto kasi binili namin para sa church)
Ang actual price nito as of Last week of January. 26,995 10% less pag cash,
pero nakuha cya ng 22k. cash.

.and wala lang cymbals.

2 cymbals stand included. (straight + boom)
throne.
Remo UX yung lahat ng drumhead.

Hardware (i think heavy duty cya)
itsura (ok din) feeling ko mejo malaki ang mga toms nya. (or sadyang maliit na tao lang ako..hahaha)

Sound (dapat lagyan ng muffler para di ma overtone...same with Sonor base on video)
na test ko na tong Mapex (Ok cya)

eto links para sa Mapex Q

feature=related
feature=related


Personally naging choice ko po ang Mapex Q, because of the videos, ask din ako sa ibang friends.
then may cymbals pa naman po, kaya no need ng new. tapos 2 kasi ang cymbals stand. nagtanong kasi ako ng brand new
pearl  nasa 2.8k dagdag gastos pa. kung quality parehas silang entry level.

Ask mo narin mga Dugong Pinoy nating mga drummer dito sa philmusic para sa dagdag kaalaman.

Sana nakatulong sayo. :-D

Post by: ^Son_Gokou08 on February 17, 2010, 01:42:57 AM
help po, kailangan ko kasi ng drum set, bnew or 2nd hand. magkano po ba pinaka murang drum set na bnew o 2nd hand? at least ganitong setup sana (5-pc po ba tawag dito? bale di kasama sa bilang yung cymbals, drums lang? newbie po...)

(http://images04.olx.com.ph/ui/1/13/09/4690409_2.jpg)


student pa lang po ako kaya maliit lang talaga budget, bebenta ko nga lang cp ko para makabili haha. saka nagsstart pa lang din naman ako magaral mag drums.

sabi sa raon daw meron dun mga murang drum set, ok po kaya yun? i mean, sa sound siguro baka di pasado sa mga Pro, pero pagtyatyagaan ko na muna siguro. pag gumaling na saka na lang siguro mas magandang drums. o kaya di ba pwede po i-upgrade yung drum heads para gumanda tunog? o panget din yun kahit palitan yung drum heads? sa build quality po, ok po ba? di ba madaling masira yung shell (yun po ba tawag dun sa kaha nung drums?)

o mas ok po ba yung 2nd hand na mga lazer o kaya ibang brand na <9k? kung mag 2nd hand po ako, ano ba dapat kong tignan pag bibili?


thanks po. sensya na sa madaming tanong...wala pa ako alam sa drums hehe. newbie po talaga.
Title: Re: i need advice
Post by: omnicloud7 on February 17, 2010, 02:08:26 AM
magkano po ba pinaka murang drum set na bnew o 2nd hand?

Maraming places kung saan may magandang deals like sa malls, JB, PPitch, etc, Pwede ka rin tumingin tingin dito sa classifieds natin, may mga deals narin dun na wala ng mas susulit pa.

sabi sa raon daw meron dun mga murang drum set, ok po kaya yun? i mean, sa sound siguro baka di pasado sa mga Pro, pero pagtyatyagaan ko na muna siguro.

Okay lang naman din. Make sure nalang na the quality's okay, test out the kit first if possible.

o kaya di ba pwede po i-upgrade yung drum heads para gumanda tunog? o panget din yun kahit palitan yung drum heads? sa build quality po, ok po ba? di ba madaling masira yung shell (yun po ba tawag dun sa kaha nung drums?)

Keep in mind nalang na some kits, kahit gaano ka pa kagaling magtune, ang panget parin talaga ng tunog. Hindi ka gaganahin magpractice sa ganito! Syempre kung maganda tunog, gaganahin ka magpractice lalo. Yung mga Fernando kits ang mairerecommend ko, mura na sila tapos okay na okay na. Yun din pwede mo upgrade heads nila (Remo, Evans, Aquarian), tapos practice practice sa tuning, ayos na!

o mas ok po ba yung 2nd hand na mga lazer o kaya ibang brand na <9k? kung mag 2nd hand po ako, ano ba dapat kong tignan pag bibili?

Kung ako rin pipiliin, bibili nako ng 2nd hand na high-end. Kasi in the long run, tatagal rin naman talaga ito, at kung baka sakali, it just might be the last kit that you'll ever need. Remember nalang na you get what you pay for sa stores. Kung cheap, cheap. Kung mahal, good quality! Since starting out ka palang, ang mairerecommend ko is bumili ka ng mid-end kit like Fernando. Tatagal na ito sayo! After mong makakuha ng kit, mag-ipon ka na para sa magandang high-end cymbals. Mas okay ng bumili ng mahal sa simula, kesa sa bili ng bili ng panget ng paulit-ulit. Yung drums matotono mo yun para gumanda tunog, eh yung cymbals? hindi dba?

hope this helps bro! i tried to remember every bit of advice i got from the others, sana nakatulong. goodluck, and most of all, keep enjoying drumming! passion talaga ang kailangan sa kahit anong instrument.  :mrgreen:

@CDodrummer problema po kasi sakin, mabagal ako matuto pag di ako nageenjoy....saka iba pa rin po kasi yung may drum set. mas gaganahan ako magbasa sa net at magpractice.

@paeng16 as in ganun po ba kapangit? eh kung mapalitan po ng drum heads pangit pa rin po ba sya? yung nasa pic po, ganun kasi yung balak ko...may nakita ako na nagbebenta nyan 8k lang...2nd hand sya. pano pong sadista? yung sa cp ko kasi wala akong choice, di ako ibibili ng parents ko ng drum set kasi di naman daw importante yun. kaso gusto ko talaga mag drums.

Gretch Catalina Maple Kit!! hehehe...  GRRRR!!!!!

I suggest you buy the Kit without the packaged things.. As in KIT lang at mga hardware (stands, etc).

Then

Buy ka Istanbul cybal set... Sounds like Zildjian K yun... hopefully pasok sa 50K lahat yun hehehe... SOLVED kana dun dude...

sorry, but if budget permits, go for the drum set that could bear all the beating (since you're just starting and learning how to strike properly) that has hardware that could probably last until you have the money to buy new ones...  :-D
Title: Re: DRUM HELP!!!
Post by: daleee on February 21, 2010, 09:53:05 AM
good drum set for me has good wood... i'd go for fernando drums since it may maple siya and birch... and as for the tuning problems, check the bearing edges of the drums that you are buying (it affects the tuning, the problem with the tuning of cheap drums)  :-D

mag tanong lang po ako.. gusto ko kasi matuto mag drums, ano bang mas okay?
Option 1: Gusto ko sana bumili nang basic drum set at subukan kong mag aral magisa.
Option 2: Magtake muna ako nang drum lessons bago ako bumili nang drum set.

at if option 1 ang answer nyo, kung pwede mag state na rin kayo nang drum set na basic at affordable para sa beginner na katulad ko (as in walang alam).

                    na ang gusto mong bilhin. :-D
    sa option1: Since newbie ka pa, may tendency kang makabili ng kit ngayon tapus papalitan mo ulit after
                    sometime (na magkaroon ka ng experience/knowledge/style) kasi di mo trip yun una mong

i think they are good for the price, and as they say, they even level up with zildjian soundwise. use your ear, find what suits your genre or your preferences

Ey guys! I'm new here. I'm planning to buy a drum set tho wala ako masyado alam sa ganito like yun parts niya, sizes, specs and so on.

I have some questions po sana matulungan niyo ako.

-Ok po ba ang Gretsch na drums? Sa quality niya? Ano pinagkaiba neto sa ibang leading brands ng drums   like yun Pearl? I've heard of this kasi and sabi nila ok daw to.

-Ano mas ok sa Catalina Maple and Ash?

-Anong other option pa ba ang malapet na ren sa Gretsh? Fernando, Sonor or iba pa?

-And lastly, sa mga natanong kong packages ang cymbals daw na kasama eh yun Zildjian Planet Z 4 pc. Is this set of cymbals ok?

- any tips pa po? ano ba dapat ko malaman when buying a set?

Bale gagamitin ko lng yun set indoors tho gs2 ko na rin sanang set eh yun mailalabas mo na rin for ocassional shows/gigs. And as much as possible eh yung tatagal talaga na set kase I don't have intentions of buying me a second set. Tama na ang isa kaya gs2 ko lahat andon na sa bibilin ko. ü

Oh of this one counts na ren, I'm planning to learn jazz style of drum playing.

I'm really sorry for the noobie questions.

Thanks much!


Dude im a newbie too pero like ko lng sna ishare ung personal experience ko if u going to start buy a cheaper drums like fernandopag tipid ka sa budget like me for me kse nung nagstart ako fernando then i changed the skins to remo all of the toms tpos nun ska ako nag upgrade ng mga cymbals kse sa akin lng sa pananaw ko as a newbie magnda matutunan mo ung tamang pag tune ng drums at di dpat mamahalin masiado para pag stable ka na sa pag ddrums at sawa ka na sa drums mo nun ka mag upgrade for a better kits yun lng po ako kse maselan ako sa tune ng drums kya ayun pumuputok ung mga lugs ko nun hahahahaha pero i change it din nmn bumili agad ako bagong lugs hehehehehe kso now wla na ako pinas hehehe wla na din drums ko hahahahaha! apir!!! more power sa mga fellow drummers natin na pag  nakakakita ng humihingi ng advice eh di nag dadalawang isip na mag advice kya natututo din ako sa mga advice nila tnx Up for this forum!

I suggest you trade your ride for another ride, or sell the ride and get a new one. Go directly to your point of destination, if you don't need a pedal why trade your ride for a pedal?  :wink:

mga sir tanong lang po, bumili kasi ako ng drum set kahapon sa raon. yung Global lang. tig 9k sya. kulang kasi talaga budget. kaso wala talaga akong kasamang marunong tumingin ng drum set, and newbie naman ako. nagaaral pa lang mag drums. napansin ko kasi na yung snare at rack toms, parang hindi sya perfect circle. hindi naman gaano distorted yung itsura pero di nga perfect. normal lang ba yun? o baka may kinalaman kaya sa pag fit ko ng hoops at drum heads? hindi kaya hindi sya pumantay dahil may mali ako sa pagkabit? posible kaya yun?

sayang naman. kadalasan kasi sa mga generic sets hindi ganun katibay ang pagkakagawa, eventualy nawawala sa korte yung mismong shells dahil hindi maganda yung materials na ginamit pati yung manufacturing process hindi din maayos.. :-(

- sana sa classifieds ka na lang bumili sulit pa.. :lol:

try to compare the hardwares of those kits.
bilangin mo yung mga lugs.dapat EVEN(6-8 lugs)
nakakita ako ng global na kit lima lang yung lugs.pano mo ito-tono yun.
nakakita ako ng GTX kit,single braced lahat ng harewares. :-P

personally i'd go to fernando kits. ok na din yung hardwares.remo pa minsan yung heads :-)

Mga sirs, first time buyer din ako, pero meron na kong existing drum set(binili ng dad ko para sakin), ang problema lng super deteriorated na ung condition nya, medjo hinde na comfortable i-play. Second hand fernando kasi, sira na ung ibang hardwears nya. Recommended ba i repair ko to and buy new parts or maginvest nlng ako para sa bagong drum set?

Ang plano ko kasi sana, since tight budget ko (student lng e), bumili nlng ako piece by piece ng mga drums, kunyari bass drum muna ngaun, next time na ung toms, hanggang makabuo ako ng magandang set (at para maganda mga yamaha, pearl ung brand). Para hinde masyadong mabigat, tapos makakapagpractice pa ko ng ganun. Ang huhulihin ko siguro ay ung mga cymbals. Kaso ang problem lng dun ang pangit ng mga sounds nung mga luma, titiiisin nlng siguro.

ano tingin nyo po?  :|

cymbals na unahin mo bro since ang drums natotono at kahit pano kahit gano pa ka-generic ang drums pwedeng pagandahin ang tunog nyan. ang cymbals once low end will always be a low end and cheap sounding.

sa drums mo bro hanggat kaya mong irestore/magawan ng paraan para lang maging playable yung kit mo eh gawin mo, basta ok pa yung shells nyan, mas mapapa-mahal ka in buying separate/tingi tingi na drumshells..

and question lang:
dapat ba terno ung kahoy sa hoops at heads? or kung ano lang gusto ko?
ex. birch + diecast + remo. or maple + flanged + evans?? or kung ano?
newbie lang po hehe.

newbie lang po hehe.

actually depende sa sound na habol mo first of all ang main deciding factor sa pagbili ng drumset. knowing na birch yung prefered choice of wood mo and maybe maple as an alternative, anong specific sound ba yung hanap mo?

konting tips:

Hoops:
Triple Flanged - more open and ringy
Diecast - more focused and less sustain

Heads:
Single Ply - much like an equivalent of triple flanged, more open and ringy
Double Ply - much like an equivalent of diecast, more focused and less sustain

actually, it's all a matter of personal taste at the end of the day. decide first kung anong sound ang hanap mo, after which mas madali nang makapili ng set na pasok sa panlasa mo. for example, pwedeng TAMA Superstar (birch + diecast) or Gretsch Catalina (maple + triple flange) to name a few.. about head preferences naman, either remo or evans, it would depend again on the sound you're looking for. pwedeng mix and match (for example - diecast with single ply or triple flange with double ply) feel free to mix and match; experiment to your heart's desire until makuha mo yung sound na hinahanap mo! cheers! :wink:

Hello to the drummers!

I have now entered your world. Just bought a Fernando starter kit fit for my 15 year old son. 5pc package included Planet Z hi hat and crash/ride.

Had my own kit 25 years ago (long gone now) and I had no trouble setting it up.

I would appreciate any tips in care and set up and of course little known secrets that you keep from the guitar players.

Soon I will be a lurker in your classifieds for baby steps upgrades.

Peace to all.

OT;
Bakit magkaka-iba ang presyo ng JB Music sa iba't ibang branches nila? Tulad sa JB Music Trinoma at SM North. May mga items na mas mura sa SM North compared sa Trinoma and vice versa. Minsan naman sobrang mura sa JB Trinoma kesa sa SM North. Tas ganun din iba nanaman din ang presyo sa Manila Music at Salongga Music. Knowing na iisang company lang sila but their prices vary depending on what branch. Minsan tuloy kailangan ko pang puntahan ang iba't ibang branch para malaman kung san mas makakatipid. :lol:

OT;
Bakit magkaka-iba ang presyo ng JB Music sa iba't ibang branches nila? Tulad sa JB Music Trinoma at SM North. May mga items na mas mura sa SM North compared sa Trinoma and vice versa. Minsan naman sobrang mura sa JB Trinoma kesa sa SM North. Tas ganun din iba nanaman din ang presyo sa Manila Music at Salongga Music. Knowing na iisang company lang sila but their prices vary depending on what branch. Minsan tuloy kailangan ko pang puntahan ang iba't ibang branch para malaman kung san mas makakatipid. :lol:


yun nga eh, lalo na dun sa salongga sa may RAON?!

ambait pa nung nagbabantay tapos sinasabi niya talaga yung lowest price na makukuha mo yung item

Post by: musicianurse28 on January 07, 2011, 07:03:42 AM
Himig Lakas ay ang October Sale ng JB Music at iba pa po ang Christmas Sale. Tama rin po na mas malaki ang discount kapag Himig Lakas na. Christmas Sale nila last year 2010 started nung Nov.16,2010. Hanggang Jan.16,2011 na lang sila.

May nakita ata akong thread dito minsan na "Bakit laging sale sa JB Music?". Please correct me if I am wrong, I can't recall. So ayun na nga, bakit nga ba laging sale sa JB Music at bakit iba iba ang presyo nito sa iba't ibang branch?

Di ko pa tuloy mabili yung gear na gusto kong kunin, nagbabakasakali na baka mas mura nanaman dun sa isang branch pa. :lol:

Bakit laging Sale sa JB Music, twing kelan nagsisimula ang Sale nila, at bakit iba iba ang mga presyo ng items nila sa iba't ibang branch?

Super OT na tayo dito mga kapatid! Pasensya na po kayo mga sir mods, wag niyo sana i-lock tong thread. Sorry..Last na po ito. Pasensya na

Not really a first time buyer, but its the first time, after 10 years, I am making an educated choice.
Old kit is a 5 pcs Genesis kit from Perfect Pitch. somebody who borrowed it changed skins to remo I think.  but drums got flooded and hardware a bit rusted.

On ZBT cymbals, happy with them.  Bought Pearl Elims dbl pedals.

Wifey wants to buy me a new set for my Bday.  Budget 25-30k, for kit only.  Hiya ako eh kaya limit to that.

What set should I buy for a small 25sqm concrete enclosed basement? We play 90's music, the likes of the goo goo dolls, gin blossoms, new radicals, eheads, Incubus, RHCP, Cake, Weezer, Black Crowes, the like.

Thanks!  I love this forum!  I have learned a lot.  Now back to work...

Welcome to this thread sir Chipstah. I would suggest you try Gretsch Catalina Maple 5pc. kit if you only prefer a single Floor Tom. It's much cheaper than the other model of Catalina Maple which has an extra Floor Tom of different size and depth that makes it a 6pc kit. Another choice, if you're only looking for a kit without cymbals, try the Yamaha Gig Maker. It's good enough for the 90's music. It's available in any Perfect Pitch or Yamaha Music Stores. It was once my choice but then I still want Gretsch Drums as my ultimate choice. Good luck!

Happy Drumming!

Thanks musicianurse28!  Great help.

I was also thinking, that it should not be that loud a set, so fusion, pero rock tugtog namin.  Anyway, I did not know Gretch Catalina Maple had a 5 pc set.  Pasok ba sa 25k?

How about Tama?  May 25k ba?

Pearl Exports, may 25k ba?

These are the only options I know.  Any more suggestions on kits na pang jamming lang sa basement, but with good sound and the least requirement for maintenance?  Di marunong mag tono eh.

Thanks!

Sir, a fusion kit is ok with Rock genre. Look at the then band Bamboo, they play Rock and Fusion Jazz but the kit Vic Mercado was using is a fusion kit. I was inspired to have a fusion kit because of them especially by Vic.

Yes there is a 5pc kit of Gretsch Catalina Maple, which I believe was in 42k sale till January 16 only. Not bad for a mid to high end drum kit. I'm not really familiar with the Tama and Pearl kits because I'm kinda biased when it comes to kits and my top choice is Gretsch.

If for jamming and hobby purpose only, Gretsch Catalina Ash and Gretsch Catalina Maple are my choice. Pearl Target Series are good enough. Also Sonor Force 2005 is ok. Ludwig kit Accent series is also a good choice. All of these are available in any JB Music stores. JB's Christmas Sale is only till January 16. These kits are in 25-40% SALE! Try to catch up! But for me the best choice is Gretsch! :lol:

Visit all the stores nearby and start with the "budget wise" move. Next is "let your heart decide". This advice came from one of my Filipino drummer idol sir Michael Alba or Mike Alba. Good luck with the search! I'll be waiting for your post in the "New Gears" thread and the "Let's see those kits" thread.

For beginners na gusto kahit pano eh mas "angat" naman sa mga stock cymbals ng kit, try Zildjian ZBT line. Naniniwala kasi ako na pag talagang mahusay na at talaga namang marunong na, dun na lang mag-invest sa mga high end types of Cymbals. Magandang high end ang mga Zildjian A Customs, A, K Customs, K. Dameng choices. You'll never go wrong with it. :-)

hi,

sa mga locally available e-drums, which would you guys recommend => td4k vs td9 (snare mesh only model) vs dtxpress iv special?

does the price diff between td4k vs td9 justify the the added features of the td9?  also, do the cymbals and hihat of the dtxpress make a big diff as to response and playability?

thanks! \m/
Title: Re: First Time Gear Buyer Questions Here!
Post by: mokie on March 15, 2011, 10:30:03 PM
^x_taxi, i got a td9kx sir, if gusto mo ng maraming features sa module, syempre mas angat ang td9k compared sa td4k, pero depende na rin po if kung gusto mong maraming kit samples,then go for td9. pero sabi nga nila, hindi naman yun lahat magagamit mo and you can adjust naman yung tuning ng edrum para makuha yung gusto niyong sound.
basta td4k ok na rin naman, un nga ang first choice ko but td9kx din sa huli ang bagsak ko.   :-D
try mo mag td4kx or td9kx sir, dahil mesh pads.. :-D
Title: Re: First Time Gear Buyer Questions Here!
Post by: x_taxi on March 19, 2011, 09:22:59 AM
thanks for the suggestions dude! should try out those td9 mesh pads. i still have no preference as to rubber vs mesh, but mostly everyone at vdrums seems to like the mesh (it being roland forum notwithstanding).  but i'm very much tempted by the yamaha cymbals and "real" hats pedal!

will be moving in a few months, and the village doesn't take kindly to noisy neighbors. kahit tahol lang ng aso, bibisita na yun guard.  so as much as i'd like an acoustic kit (like the tama superstar fusion kit!), i have no choice but to go for edrums.

x_taxi - it's your choice bro. maybe it is better na matry mo muna yung difference ng model na gusto mo and syempre yung feel ng rubber pads and mesh pads.  :-)

same lang tayo ng reason bro, pero napapaisip ako kung ibebenta ko na lang yung edrums ko and switch back to acoustic drums, pero baka malabo pa yun sa ngayon.  bawal maingay eh..  :lol:

btw, there's a chance i can have an acoustic set, if the spare room i'll use for the studio will be "acoustically" quiet from outside.  so i'm thinkin if i should get either: tama superstar fusion kit vs. yamaha stage custom.  \m/

for cymbals, i'm pretty much set on paiste alphas.

Post by: dreendroid on May 16, 2011, 11:48:04 PM
I personally suggest a very good kit as a whole. Kahit na starter ang gagamit, every drummer deserves some good drums.
Start off with a very awesome (or pricey  :-o) drum kit. Yung mga dream kits talaga...kahit na beginner sige lang saksak lang ng kayang at
gustong cymbals. One way or another mappaid off rin naman yan after some time. Gumaling man or tinigil.

Dati kasi my dad bought me a generic kit. Every month na lang may nasisiraan (cymbals, pedals, etc.)
After a year I got an electronic kit (Roland HD-1) pero nagsawa rin dahil napakalimited ng cymbals, volume, and ung kit na rin as a whole.
-After 2 years, sold my Roland, and got a true kit (my signature below)

Complicated and rough.....hindi ko lang maexpress tlga. hehe  :-D

I just want for every drummer to start off with some real  8-) drums.
Kung budgeted, then go for those Pearl Targets, or some TAMA Imperialstars
and with some pAiSTe PSTs or those Planet Z Zildjians. Lalo niyo maeexperience talaga ang drumming at it's finest :wink:

Kapag drummer talaga....budget ang kalaban. But hey, it's a very awesome instrument :roll: just a little $$$

Go out there and start drumming. peace  :mrgreen:

Save a little more money if you're planning on drumming for a long time.
Entry level kits are usually  harder to set, tune, and play in general than a mid level kit.
a good set would be around 30k depending on brand and specs.
I own a lazer set entry level and it lasted me until now but I cut the shell and fixed the bearing edges.
the fernando kits look a little more promising.
The pearl target series would probably a step above.
But save a little more would be my advice. and look around online for drum sets.

I have been enjoying my new kit for a while (catalina maple 5 pcs.). Thinking of upgrading my cymbals from zbt's to higher kinds of sets. Only requirement is that they are quieter, since we only play in a small concrete walled basement with lots of echo.
Any suggestions? Thanks!
Title: Re: First Time Gear Buyer Questions Here!

buy small and thin/fast cymbals...

i personally use these and they are quite quiet enough on very small rooms like yours and mine:
12" remix hihats (or hanap ka nung avedis special recording hats, meron din namang mga thin hihats na 14")
armand 16 thin crash
avedis 14 fast crash
k custom 20 dark ride (pwede rin avedis 20 sweet ride/k light 20 preaged dry ride)

to remove the room "echo" or reverb, lagay ka lang ng mga kumot sa walls.

Post by: Chipstah on July 10, 2011, 09:13:59 AM
Thanks. We have done some acoustic treatments to the wall already to minimize echoes but zbt's are naturally loud.
Starting off with the hats, where would be the best place to buy smaller and thinner hats? Any preferred brand?
Thanks!
Title: Tips of buying a second hand drum set...
Post by: XrsJay on July 17, 2011, 01:20:53 PM
First of all im not a drummer and im not planning to be one. But my dad wants to buy a set for a project that his making (somekinda music studio/practice room) anyone there can share some tips for buying a second hand drum set ..


thanks for replies..

Post by: musicianurse28 on July 17, 2011, 03:28:52 PM
1. Know the brand and model of that second hand drum set..
2. Browse some reviews of it online.. It would help you find out what you really want..
3. Check its hardwares, screws, drum parts and so on.. Just check everything.. And make sure that it will do its job accordingly..
4. If you're going to buy a second hand online, make sure the seller is not a bastard.. Some would take advantage of you if they found out that they can manipulate you.. Sad to say it happened multiple times already not just here in Pinoydrums but in other online selling sites as well.. Just know the seller first.. Some tips would be, check their accounts, see their transactions, check the comments posted by their clients, just make sure they are trustworthy..
5. Make sure that the price is reasonable enough, knowing the fact that it is a second hand kit..

Good luck!

Wow bro . . .for me medyo pricey na for that price. I suggest na maghintay ka ng kapaskuhan yang 32k na yan maging 20 or 24 na lang. hehe  :wink:

Or kung atat tlga, pwede na yan. and concern ko lang bakit naman kaya Fernando ang stands  :-o

I'm thinking about buying a Tama speedcobra twin pedal @ audiophile, but i'm in the province so i asked a friend in manila to contact the store yesterday to inquire how much the pedal is..he was told that the speedcobra costs 16,550 and the iron cobra at around 18k+. i was thinking that the speedcobra is an upgrade to the ICs so I wasnt expecting that it will be a lot cheaper than the ICs. I'm asking you guys if  I was misformed giving me the wrong price or was it really the exact price of the speedcobra here in RP? I just checked it at an online store and it shows that the SC is more expensive than the ICs. Is anyone there who got the Speedcobras? How much did you get for it? Need help. Thanks a lot! :-D

Need advise on which of my options to pick.  I need quiet cymbals, and are willing to start with hats.  Its for our small concrete walled basement where our band plays.  My present ZBTs overpower the mix.

1.  13 A Mastersounds / Z Dynobeat  hats

2.  12 A Custom Mastersound hats

3.  14 Istambul Sultans (thinking of getting the whole set of Sultans, crash plus ride)

All three available options.

I need by before Sunday.

My kit is a 5pcs. Gretsch Catalina Maple fusion kit with the 20" bass drum.

Thanks all!

For me, The Sultans were a steal. For the price of 16550 you get them all Hats,Crash and Ride. :-D
Pero Zildjian user ako and for quiet use, I would like 13 K Custom Dark hi-hats.  :-D

Post by: Chipstah on July 29, 2011, 01:57:49 PM
thanks!

So if volume is the main issue, being that where we play is smaller than a usual studio, diameter is not the main consideration?

Seriously considering the sultans then, as long as they are quieter than my ZBTs.

I plan to buy tonight or tomorrow.  So Sultans for studio size venues?  Kawawa na kasi mga kabanda ko, pati ako bingi na, and I dont even play metal...

Your thoughts please. :)

Pero syempre iba pa rin yung actual test sa settings niyo.  :-D

12'' A Custom Mastersound for the win.. First of all its pretty good for small venues, and lastly, its "chick" sound.. And when playing it, you'll really hear the bite! But 13'' will do also..Good luck!

Brod zachi, tama si master Riff.. Mas controlled ang sound ng smaller sized hats.. And personal preference talaga ng gagamit..

Anyway, sagot ko naman sa tanong mo, (para saken lang ha, personal choice), masyado ng common ang 14'' hats.. Gusto ko lang maiba nung mga panahon na nageexperiment rin ako tulad mo ngayon.. Meron ako ngayon Stagg 13'' Furia Hats.. The best na para saken.. Dati gusto ko rin yung 12'' A Mastersound, wala lang budget that time..Pero kung meron siguro, yun na ang kinuha ko :-)

Dun ko na nagustuhan ang mga smaller diameter hats after maka-try ng 13''.. PERO, di ko sinasabing panget ang 14'' hats ha? Ok siya, in fact, safest choice siya since yun nga ay pang all around..

Talagang kanya kanyang panlasa lang talaga yan..good luck :-)

check out medium - medium heavy cymbal types. you could try checking out stagg cymbals as well since bihira ang availability ng Sabian B8 crashes with those specific weights, within price range din ang stagg kung tutuusin. :wink:

Try Gibraltar double peds.. Not bad for newbies when it comes to Gibraltar hardwares.. Take it from me sir.. Newbie hardware na pero parang naka Pro hardware ka na.. Try Gibraltar 6611-DB.. Pero kung gusto mo na ng medyo advanced Double Peds try mo na lang yung Pearl Demon Drive double peds or Tama Speed Cobra double peds.. Good investments na.. Good luck!

Post by: mrsticky on November 23, 2011, 12:14:15 PM
Mga sir, ask ko lang po ang opinions nyo (please be open).

gusto ko po kasi bumili ng drumset either 2nd hand or brand new kaso pinagiisipan ko lang..... kasi may nagustuhan ako brand new and 2nd hand.. so my question is... WHICH is WHICH???

brand new:
Gretsch black hawk series
18k+(50% off sa jb) complete hardware set no cymbals, no throne and I think isa lang ang cymbal stnad na kasama. Right?

2nd hand
sonor 1005 series
I saw the pics and its in good condition.
Includes 2 meinl cymbals (16" crash and 14" hats) 1 ZBT ride cymbal 20" (from the looks of the picture faded na ung logo). May stock na cymbals pa ata.
Tama snare ambassador(heads) (kaso di nya naindicate kung anu, pero its stainless)
All drum heads are Lazer except the snare (which is really not a problem at all)
Included lahat ng hardwares pati throne
18k price

My considerations:

My budget as of now is 18k+ so buying the gretsch would make me wait for another ipon to buy cymbals and 1 more cymbal stand. Of course brand new saya so mataas ang resale value nya in the future.

Buying the sonor 1005 series would be enough for my budget, its a complete set. but of course mababa na ang resale value in the near future and the series is a little ancient (may sonor 3007 na kasi dba).

I'm a good drummer so far but not yet great. THIS WILL BE MY FIRST DRUM SET.

So WHICH is WHICH?

Thank you guys in advance. I'll appreciate any comments. :-D :-D :-D

sa mga choices mo, yung sonor dahil kumpleto na. hindi magandang mag drums nang walang cymbals [parang ati atihan lang] meron nang dalawang stand. throne.

comment ko lang [8 months palang akong nag da drums]:
bili ka muna ng murang drum set, cymbals, hardware, etc [pamraktis lang]
tapos pag professional" kana bili kana ng mga professional series drum kits.

gagamitin mo ba sa gig /recording o sa bahay lang?

My take on mrsticky's predicament...

Based on your post... "good drummer"... "hobby"... "home use"...

If you're not too impatient and you'll be into this "hobby" in the long run, I'd highly suggest you wait, save more money and buy a NEW MID-LEVEL drum set (along the lines of Tama Silverstar, Gretsch Catalina, Pearl VBX).

I'm just the kind of person that places a lot of importance on quality and value, most especially if it is an activity I love to do and will be in it long term. It follows, I'll spend more and I buy something with no plans to resell.

For me, first kit should be new and what I really want and I'm the first to tinker around and handle it. It is simply more satisfying that way. You'll also be the one making history with and taking care of it.

Good advice. Pero ok lang din ako kung hindi brand new. Meron naman ok condition na 2nd hand.
Bilin mo na gusto mo kung palagay mo magtatagal ka sa hobby na to. kung magmadali ka, at kukuha ka ng masmababang model sa gusto mo, sigurado ilang bwan pa lang bebenta mo din yan at maguupgrade ka...in the long run mas malaki pa magagastos mo. Tiis na lang habang nagiipon. Lalong magiging fulfilling pagnakuha mo na yung gusto mo talaga.

puede din bilin mo isa isa. Since kulang pa budget mo, prioritize mo yung item na kakasya pera...cymbals, snare...etc

balak ko nang bumili ng cymbals
beginner lang po ako (8months of home drumming)

Planet Z - Pangit po ba yung sound?
Sabian B8 - Nayuyupi ba and edge?
Stagg SH - ano po ba ang masasabi ninyo sa sound? [mayroon kasi akong nakitang SH rock hi hat yung center hole chipped na]
ZBT - mayroon kasi akong nakitang picture walang crack pero ang daming yupi ng edge

Planet Z, di ko trip yung tunog, mas mabilis mag-dent or mayupi & di siya pang matagalan... :oops:
Sabian B8, 2yrs ko nang nagamit di pa nayuyupi, great sound, pangmatagalan but be careful of possible keyholes... :-)

Good advice. Pero ok lang din ako kung hindi brand new. Meron naman ok condition na 2nd hand.
Bilin mo na gusto mo kung palagay mo magtatagal ka sa hobby na to. kung magmadali ka, at kukuha ka ng masmababang model sa gusto mo, sigurado ilang bwan pa lang bebenta mo din yan at maguupgrade ka...in the long run mas malaki pa magagastos mo. Tiis na lang habang nagiipon. Lalong magiging fulfilling pagnakuha mo na yung gusto mo talaga.

puede din bilin mo isa isa. Since kulang pa budget mo, prioritize mo yung item na kakasya pera...cymbals, snare...etc


so u r saying that maybe I should go buy the first option (Gretsch Black hawk series)? Thanks po jckazs and jobo_ph.
so I have different opinions na. haha! as for the patience, its a bit of a problem. I think everyone has experienced this, parang every night huna-hunt ako ng drumset until mabili ko sya. :-o :-o hahaha!

so what do you say about my 2 option drumset:
Gretsch blackhawk series
sonor 1005 series (2nd hand)

thanks again guys! :-D :-D

I COMPLETELY AND FULLY understand and KNOW how it feels that patience can be a problem...

It took me 3 years before I could buy my Tama Silverstar kit and XS20 cymbal set... how did I try to become patient? I deliberately tried to forget about it (not visiting Tama's website, not visiting Philmusic, avoiding music stores, putting more of my mind at work and home/family and other stuff/hobby) until my savings started to near their mark... In the end, it's ALL WORTH THE WAIT because I got what I really wanted.

Now, I don't really need to test my patience of waiting even if I will be eyeing high-end cymbals within the next 2 years. I already have something good enough to practice and play on.

mukhang magkaiba tayo ng approach bro eh..hehe, pero it worked for me na laging patingen tingen sa net ng drumsets na pangarap ko, another advantage is you can also research on the pros and cons ng trip mong drumset.

Oo, magkaiba nga, dre. Para lalo maguluhan si mrsticky! Haha!

Three or so years ago, subsob din ako sa research tungkol sa drum sets... Pearl, Gretsch, at Tama... before ako nag-decide na Tama ang gusto ko... then malalaman mo ang cost  :-o... hindi madali... kaya tumigil at umiwas muna talaga ako kasi kung hindi, masisira ang ulo ko sa inip...  :-D

Post by: jckazs on November 25, 2011, 01:55:06 PM
Glad to help. Was in a similar situation a few years ago. Ngayon dami ko na napagdaanan na gear. in the process, medyo malaki din nagastos / nasayang ko. As jobo said, kung kaya mo maghintay, papagipunan mo na lang mid level kit, or better, pro level kit.

Pero if i had to choose between sonor force 1005 o black hawk, black hawk na ko. Madami magagaling dito sa forum na naka black hawk. Thing to consider, minsan at that price point medyo madaming features ang wala compared to mid-level kits such as catalina, silverstar etc. Kadalasan inferior ang hardware, type of wood, craftsmanship.

@jobo_ph yeah, I figured out na naguluhan lalo ako sa opinions mo. haha! We're on the opposite side, I usually walk across the festival mall going in and out of the place where I work, so I really can't avoid looking over and over again on the drum sets. Even though parang nasusuka ako sa sobrang excitement, it gives me a lot of inspiration para makuha ko yung mga un some other time (maybe after a 2nd hand or if lucky I can buy those already).

@plitipiw40315 ang problem is ung isang nireresearch ko na drum set is an old series na konti na lang tlga ung reviews kaya di ko sya tlga mareresearch ng todo.

@jckazs its no problem for me if I lose some cash in the process of upgrading/reselling/experimenting gears (not that I'm rich) but I think "you can charge it to experience". kasi if ever iisipin mo na may nasayang kang pera, ok lang dahil nagamit mo pa rin naman. Maybe we can never be fully contented diba?

Black hawk ay entry level kit right? so if I'm going to buy that, maybe then I will still replace it after some time right? (maybe 3-4 yrs)
Title: Re: First Time Gear Buyer Questions Here!
Post by: jckazs on November 26, 2011, 10:23:15 AM
Yup, considered entry level. Pero if you're happy with how it sounds at matibay naman, baka hindi kailangan magpalit. Good point. Though magastos magupgrade, masaya naman. More exposure to different types of gear, in the process malalaman mo din yung hinahanap mo talaga.

Sa church namin ludwig accent series gamit.
Pwede na yung shells for its price.
Design is almost generic like. Single braced hardwares, Snare,hi-hats and straight cymbal stand.

If you plan on buying now and already thinking that you will change it in 3-4 years. For me, mas ok to wait until all you have sufficient funds to buy what you really want. Or maybe wait ng good sale, To purchase a decent/mid-end kit at a very low price. And tipong pagkabili mo is enjoy/satisfied ka at most, walang what if ito sana nabili ko or ayun. Well that's just me.

my advice...dont replace the felt beaters. mabagal kasi at mabigat ang feel ng ganyang pedal kaya kapag kinabitan mo ng may plastic na beater, bibigat lalo feel nung pedal.

IMO, felt beaters also sound fuller than any other hard beaters

If your looking for a good sounding kit, you can check brands like pearl, tama, gretsch, ludwig, dw , yamaha,etc.
But not all branded kit comes with good sound, that's why you have to consider drum heads & tuning.

Since you know how to play it would be easy for you to spot a kit that not only looks good but also sounds perfect. Goodluck!

mga boss may tanong ako, may pinagpipilian ako sa 2 kits na nakita ko paki-assess naman bawat isa please haha nahihirapan kasi ako mag decide :))

KIT # 1
tama imperialstar 5pc kit with hihat, ride, crash cymbals (lahat meinl hcs), drum throne for P31k

KIT # 2
pearl target 5pc kit hihat, crash/ride cymbals (planet z), without drum throne for P29k

alin ang mas ok sa 2? i have bias towards tama pero im not sure kung yung added 2k ay sulit ba in terms of quality of drum throne AND cymbals (meinl ba or planet z? honestly i wanna hit them to test). or do i have to look for another kit at all?

Go with the imperial star bro, it's way better than the target.

thanks! may mga naririnig/nababasa kasi ako na hindi raw maganda ang meinl hcs. i have a question, pag magtetest ng cymbals, aling spots ang magandang i-hit?

Having owned the imperialstar/hcs kit before, I would attest to its durability. Matatag ang kit and matino ang hcs. Gaganda pa ang tunog pag pinalitan ang stock heads.

Post by: jake z on June 24, 2012, 06:49:07 PM
Yup. You should hit it everywhere.

Imho: hcs can be compared to zbt or zht. Kasi pag planet z, yung crash nya parang papel. It wouldn't last. Even the ride sounds so crappy.

Btw, where did you saw the kits?

Wow, this makes the hcs look really good considering that it's brass.   :) I had hcs cymbals and I agree, they're decently bright cymbals.

Post by: jake z on July 26, 2012, 07:52:42 AM
Well hcs is considered like a way better than planet z. I think planet z can be compared to meinl's headliner cymbals.

you can try this:

Dati syang shopinstallment.com, under construction pa ata. I would suggest computing muna yung tubo nila, ang taas ng interest eh.

After quite some time, sa wakas may budget na ako to buy one! :-D

But, i still don't know what kind/brand should I buy. :oops:
Dalawang kit pa lang kasi nagagamit ko (Pearl Export, Gretsch Catallina Maple) so ang hirap mag decide on what since yun pa lang nagagamit ko, and wala pa ako idea sa ibang brands (baka kasi may mas maganda pa). I just want to ask for your opinion/suggestion/ or if you can guide me on which or what should I buy as a first time buyer ng kit, please, feel free to answer. Wahehehehe!

Thanks so much! :wave:

Kahit ano dyan sa namention mo ok. At that price point (35k to 45k) debatable yung topic na pinakamaganda. It's just a matter of personal preference. Check mo din tama silverstar, taye - available sa lazer music. Consider mo din yung cymbals sa budget. Kung cast cymbals bibilin mo, magdadagdag ka ng p30k more for a crash, ride, hats set.

I suggest sa classifieds ka bumili. Walang kaso kung 2nd hand basta ok condition.

Sir, based sa post mo ang suggestion ko e be patient. Make a decision to part with your money only when you can say confidently that you have exerted a reasonable effort in studying the possibilities within your price range. Please try to explore what's available from other brands. Tama, Premiere, Taye, Ludwig, DrumCraft, Mapex, PDP, Yamaha are the more popular ones available here aside from the two you already tried. Audiophile carries Tama and Premiere while Lazer carries Taye and DrumCraft. JB naman sa Ludwig. Yamaha/Yupangco/Perfect Pitch for Yamaha, Lyric for PDP.

For me, ang magandang branches na puntahan dahil madami kang kits na makikita ay JB Music Audio Solutions sa Shopwise Shopping Center sa Cubao, Lazer Ali Mall, Audiophile Pioneer sa Mandaluyong, Ali Mall, and Robinsons Otis sa UN Ave Manila. SM Megamall naman for Yamaha/Yupangco Music Store, The Music Source naman for Mapex, sa Ali Mall may branch din sila. I guess sa Cubao pa lang madami ka nang mapag-aaralan...good luck!

Personal opinion ko, make an itinerary/schedule...for your price range I'll take a close look at Taye, Premier, Ludwig and Tama (since nakita mo na Pearl and Gretsch)

Hello, pasensya na kung gumawa pa ko bagong thread, nalilito na kasi ako sabog sabog nababasa ko, haha.

wala pa po ako alam halos sa drums gitara po kasi hawak ko before, so dito ko na lang iipunin tanong ko.

First sa cymbals po, "entry" level lang po yung hanap ko no need for pro muna, kasi mukhang di ko rin sya mauutilize, pang bahay lang talaga tong drums, practice practice. gusto ko lang muna mapalitan yung stock fernando cymbals.. anyway nagustuhan ko yung tunog sabian b8 and yung meinl mcs, ano ba mas prefer nyo sa dalawa? nag hanap kasi ako ng set nyan sa megamall, wala ko nakitang meinl mcs, pero may sabian b8, 15k daw dun sa top floor ng mega ako nakakita, wala na kasi sa jb.. ganun ba talaga price nun? or mas mura dapat, or mas mahal?

Second sa drumheads, ano po ba masusuggest nyo na head para ma achieve ko kahit papano yung sound ng bands like, The Strokes and Arctic Monkeys, ganyan po kasi magiging tugtugan namin. ano marerecommend nyo, evens, remo, etc... tsaka pede ba yung batter lang muna palitan, stock muna reso?

and last san ba maganda mamili ng mga yan?

ayan po muna mga tanong ko, hehe pasensya po noob na noob  (shy) haha..

and thanks po

pwede na yung fernando drum set sir pang beginner, tapus kung cymbals naman try mo muna mag canvas sa classified drums and percussion dito 
mas makakamura ka pag bumili ka ng used cymbals, recommend ko din zbt 13 hats at 18 crash ride tibay, malakas, at reasonable pa yung tunog, pero ok na din siguro yung b8

Hi Guys,

Di po ako drummer so please help me. I have researched the prices and the brands, the various heads and cymbals that is available here, I just want a drummer's opinion.

Plano ko kasi bumili ng entry level or mid-level drums so that my band can practice unlimited hours sa bahay. So of all the brands, heads and cymbals that is available ano ang magandang combination of shells, cymbals and heads na maganda for metal? any brand that you can recommend for this? for the drumkit itself i estimate that I can dish out 40-50k so at least may idea price range na tayo. :)

Any suggestions are welcome! ;))

Thanks po mga master!

If you're looking for some alternative, para lang magamit ng band niyo for jamming purposes, go for 2nd hand drums.. Marame na sa Classified Ads ng Drums and Percussion, medyo nakatipid ka pa.. Yan eh kung pang bahay lang yung drums, para lang maitawid yung pag jajamming ng hanggang sa magsawa kayo..

If you're looking for an entry level or mid level, madameng ng magandang entry level ngayon.. For jamming purposes lang ulet.. Minsan nga ginagamit pa sa mga bars.. Lazer, Pearl, Tama, Gretsch or go for Yamaha Gigmaker.. Pwede pang bahay, pwede pang outdoor.. Lahat naman halos eh.. Kung may drummer na nakatira sa bahay niyo, o kung gusto mo sir matuto mag drums at baka maging drummer ka pa sa susunod imbes na gitarista, bahista, o bokalista, go for the mid level na..

As for your queries, regarding shell combinations for a particular sound, sir, nasa tenga po ng drummer niyo yan.. Kung na-itono niya sa tonong gusto niya, okay na po yun.. Minsan kasi sa drums, meron tayong tinatawag na "pwede na yan". Malawak po ang tuning range ng mga drums at drummers depende lang po talaga sa tonong na-satisfy sila at nagustuhan nila.. Any drum shells will do..  Nasa nagtotono lang po talaga yan.. Basta po papalitan lang yung mga stock heads ng branded heads like Evans, Remo, o Aquarian..

Cymbals naman, kung pang basagan lang talaga pang jamming, go for Zildjian ZBT, Sabian B8, or Stagg SH series or DH series.. Entry level to mid level po yan.. Mabasag man, hindi ganun kasakit sa bulsa kasi abot kaya naman ang presyo..

Good luck sir! :razz:

i don't know if you call this a review, more of an observation based on the picture you posted...
assuming there is truth in advertising :-D :

pluses:
1. it is birch
2. 8 lugs on a 13" snare
3. same on a 14" floor tom (interesting size)
4. decent bass drum claw hooks, spurs and hoops (hoops appear to be wood)
5. suspension tom mounts
6. sturdy looking hardware (mataba ang tubes) and double braced
7. double chain bass pedal
8. free drum throne!

1-7 are basic components to make the kit look and sound decent imo...with proper tuning and decent heads i can imagine a nice kit.
except for #3 (it's an uncommon size for a floor tom), the kit is comparable to branded kits, maybe even a notch above an entry level kit

question marks:
1. Reputation of the brand in making durable drumkits, workmanship ika nga
2. value for money
3. I'm not sure but I notice that the connectors of the boom stand are black...are these plastic? big question mark here...

bottom line, no. 1 question mark will make or break the "One Big Hit" above...either jackpot hit o tinamaan ka ng lugi <_<

Title: Need help/advice for my first kit
Post by: rusko7 on June 19, 2013, 02:58:30 AM
Good Day Fellow Drummers!

Pa help naman kung ano sa tingin niyo ang dapat kong kunin as my first kit.

First of all, naka tira ako sa semi-condo type na bulding, studio type, tight room space.
Matagal na akong nangangarap na magkaroon ng sariling kit pero limited ako lagi sa space at laging bawal mag ingay sa location ko.

Nung mapadaan ako sa isang music store kahapon, laking gulat ko nung makita ko tong mga kits na naka display:

(http://i615.photobucket.com/albums/tt240/Trifrey/RT11-2.jpg) (http://s615.photobucket.com/user/Trifrey/media/RT11-2.jpg.html)

(http://i615.photobucket.com/albums/tt240/Trifrey/RT22.jpg) (http://s615.photobucket.com/user/Trifrey/media/RT22.jpg.html)

Ang gamit ko sa ngayon ay 6" snare practice pad, hi hat stand, hi hat cymbals, bass drum practice pad, double pedals at cymbal mute pads.

Yung unang kit, afford ko at kaya ko pang i-stretch budget ko para sa isang cymbal stand at kahit generic crash lang since lalagyan ko naman ng cymbal mute pads. Kaso alang kasyang drum mute pads at mesh heads para sa kit na yon at tiyak kakatukin ako ng mga nasa kabilang room.

Yung pangalawang kit naman, may kasamang mesh heads plus cymbals for practice kaso halos kalahati nung presyo ng unang kit ang idadagdag ko para sa kit na 'to.

Nahihirapan lang ako mag decide. kung may way para mapa silent ko yung unang kit, yun na kukunin ko kaso medyo nag aalanganin ako sa floor tom holder na naka kabit sa bass drum baka matanggal yung holder katagalan.

hi bro,

mahirap nga ung situation mo.. kung nasa condo ka at bawal mag ingay, mahirap kalaban ang mga kapitbahay,
i suggest siguro bro na mag save kapa ng konti and buy a decent electronic drum kit. para sure na pwede ka mag practice kahit late night at di ka makaka abala.

just my 2 cents! hehe

Title: Re: Need help/advice for my first kit
Post by: inigo on June 19, 2013, 12:13:23 PM
Tama si Jbska. Pag condo, kahit mga maliit or portable na drums ay maingay pa rin. Either you get an electronic kit or spend to build a sound-isolated drum room.

Sir, given your limited options on space, sound/noise level, and budget, di nga pwede ang e-kit which is the best choice kung may budget ka... pwedeng ipon ko muna or if you're really decided to have a kit in your unit now, the next best thing is to use a practice pad set or a muted junior/jungle/portable kit dahil mas mura sila, i would not suggest a cheap e-kit based on not so favorable posts here sa forum...between the pads and a real kit, I would go for the portable kit since you have an option to bring it with you if you want to play your kit elsewhere such as a gig/jam session, which is not possible if you have practice pads...

The Pearl rhythm traveller kit sounds decent naman, narinig ko na with stock heads. But if you're worried with its tom/snare mounting system, you may also look at the Ludwig junior kit, narinig ko na rin matino din sya and is within the same price range as the rhythm traveller. But what I noticed is that the Ludwig kit is complete with all the hardware already, so lamang sya sa value for money over the Pearl kit, ang drawback lang nung Ludwig for me personally is mukha syang pambata compared to the Pearl na medyo pro ang dating.

But then...naisip ko bigla, if the kit plus mutes and cymbals will bring your final cost to around PhP 30K...pwede ka nang mag-hagilap ng 2nd hand e-kit, a 2nd hand e-kit of a decent brand may now go between PhP 35-40K... :-D

mismo....saka parang sugal kung pipilitin mo na mag acoustic kit but in the end e talagang 'di pwede because of the given circumstances. kung limited pa ang budget mo sa ngayon e konting tyaga muna sa pag-iipon tutal pangmatagalan naman once makuha mo ang e-drums na swak sa kalagayan mo

Hello Pinoydrums,

I just want to ask about your opinion on the following drum sets:

*Assuming it will only be used at home and for jamming purposes
*For alternative music only, no heavy music playing like metal

A. Pearl Target
B. Pearl Forum
C. Ludwig Accent CS Combo

Probably just a brief pros and cons for each. also in term of durability.

I'm a guitarist so I'm just seeking opinions from you drummer guys. :)

Thanks pinoydrums!
Title: Beginner drummer po. need advice po.
Post by: lockedonstratos on August 02, 2013, 08:52:59 PM
Months pa lang ako nagdudrums mga sir. may inoofer po sakin eto:

Fernando drumset (w/ stock hihat n crash): 13k
Ride stand: 1.8k
zildjian ride cymbals :4.5k

brand new po lahat. papatusin ko po ba? isa lang po kasi music shop sa lugar namin, and nagtataka po ako kung bakit walang warranty.
ganon po ba talaga? if ever na OK lang na walang warranty. justified naman po ba yung price ng mga items?
Title: Re: Beginner drummer po. need advice po.
Post by: Mypranaproject on August 02, 2013, 09:21:24 PM
Hi bro, san ba location mo? Sa pagkaka alam ko wala naman talaga warranty ang drums e. Basta check everything before you buy. Check the lugs if snug yung dikit sa drum shell, check the tom mounts and height adjustments ng stands if fully functional. Anong zildjian ride yung offer sa iyo? I wouldn't recommend the stock Fernando hihats and crash kasi madaling mapunit yun and crappy talaga ang sound. If you can stretch your budget, get a zildjian zbt set, Sabian B8 or Paiste 201 set...Okay naman ang Fernando e. I used to own one. I used it for 15 years then I sold it para mag upgrade to a Tama drum set. Alagaan mo lang para mabebenta mo pa at a good price.

Sir Baliwag area po.  in the mean time lang po yung mga stock cymbals. pag nakapag-ipon na po, papalitan ko rin :D. 20" zbt ride po yung ino-offer.  reasonable naman po ba yung  mga price?

If brand new lahat, tingin ko okay lang ang price. Considering wala ka nang traspo expenses compared to buying sa Raon for the same Fernando set with stock cymbals...

Title: Good first set Electronic Drum Set?
Post by: waterborne on October 06, 2013, 09:54:58 PM
Hello mga sir!

Hingi po sana ako ng advice sa mga expert drummers  :-D

Balak ko po kasi bumili ng Electronic Drumset, first time ko po. Matagal na naman ako nag-drudrums, personal hobby lang. Mga 5 years+ na.

Tanong ko lang sana, anong magandang first time Electronic Drum Set na good quality at value for Money? Tsaka san kaya maganda bumili? Budget ko sana around 35K - 50K.

May nakita ako na electronic drums, etong mga to:

Medeli DD 518X - around 42K
Medeli DD 508 - around 49K
Medeli DD 506 - around 36K

Dun sa DD 518X, natutuwa na ko kasi mahal sya dati naka promo lang.

Meron pa kaya mas maganda dun sa value na un?

Thanks mga sir!  :-D

Edit:

Yung current set ko pala, yung Lazer drumset lang hehe, hindi na kasi napalitan e. Pero meron ako double bass pedal. Pwede kaya ilagay yun sa electronic drumset ko, parang naka double peds?

Mga bossing hihingi po kami ng advice , first time po kami bibili ng drumset ang venue po church sanctuary mga 300-400 persons po ang kaya nya i accomodate , kahoy po ung pader and tiles naman po ung sahig , usually kulob po kasi airconditioned so kailangan sealed po ung lugar , bass guitar , acoustic guitar and keyboard po yung ibang instruments , unmiked po muna sa ngayon ung drums if ever na magkaroon , ung music genre naman po hindi naman palaging rock , may halo ding mellow songs given na church setup po . Hindi naman po problema ung tunog ang importante po sulit sya. Ang idea po na bibilhin is 5pc lang po , matibay ung hardware , and K-customs (hi-hat,crash,ride) po sana , ang budget po is 40-80k , ang malapit po is jb music and audiophile robinsons otis . Sobrang laking tulong po ng mga advice na mabibigay nyo , salamat po have a blessed day
Title: Re: First Time Gear Buyer Questions Here!
Post by: harugrugrug on November 26, 2013, 10:01:01 PM
sayang di kayo umabot sa jb sale. kung brand new set gusto mo e,meron naman pasok sa budget niyo both stores. sa audiophile they have a discount if you pay cash(i think) sa jb meron namang discount,as for cymbals are concerned brand new k customs,nakasale ata ang  hybrid set ng k custom sa jb,around 40K tapos samahan mo na ng kudwig,pearl of gretsch drums dun,pasok na yun sa 80k budget.
or kung di naman asap,may mga sellers dito na nagbebenta ng mas mababa sa sale price ng mga stores,pero there is a risk na alamin mo muna ang bibilin mo. baka mamaya di mo gusto mabili mo research. basta may pera madali na yan, :-D

JB music at Salonga ang distributor ng brand na Fernando....but if i were you, antayin mo nalang ang sale nila para for sure na mas makakamura ka. regarding sa cymbals, depende na 'yan sa kung magkano ang budget mo. as we all know e mahal ang branded at hiend cymbals set

That depends on the type of music you'll be playing. If ever, a ride (a crashable one at best) would be great kung wala ka pang sariling crash and you need something to keep time with as well. saka mo na isunod yung hats then huli na yung crashes.

My opinion, unahin mo ang Crash, sunod hihats tapos ride.

Crash kasi ang usually noticeable ang quality kasi iba ang buga ng tunog siya. unlike sa ride and Hihats, kahit yung mga entry level models like Planet Z, pwede mo pagtiyagaan. pero yung crash, hindi talaga eh. hahaha

advice lang po ito :)

Malaki na pala ang budget mo bro! might as well get an Istanbul Set or bili ka na ng tingi tingi sa Classified dito :D

For the istanbul sets, you might wanna check out the Radiant or Sultan Series. I think pasok pa siya sa budget mo, and these are good sounding cymbals na sir :D

My first post here. I'm not a drummer, apologies for my ignorance.
A senior friend of mine in US is giving me (selling it for a very low giveaway price actually)  a set of drums and letting me choose one of the two sets as per photos below.
Am reluctant to ask for the specs, model, etc since nahihiya ako at Baka sa bilhin Nya choosy pa ko considering the low price, pero ang totoo choosy nga ako, maski sino naman mas gusto yung the best Kung my choices.
Can any drum expert here please identify the model and help me decide. Both set comes complete with hard wares and zildjans.
Here are the pictures though crappy with least description provided.

Ludwig Yr 1972, made in Germany, double tom, 24" ang bass drum.

Check mo yung mga hardware sir lalo na yung mga lugs at tension rods. Mas maganda kung madali ka makakahanap ng mga ka match ng bibilin mo since 2nd hand sila. In my experience hindi mo maiiwasan na kalwangin yung mga hardware, when its time to replace them ang hirap maghanap ng parts. Go for the one na madali makahanap ng replacement parts.

ito yung una kong setup

fernando drumset w/ remo skin(13k inc delivery and setup/tuneup sa bahay, di ako marunong eh inaassemble pa kasi yan)
+ cymbal w/ boom para sa(1.6k)

Reliability wise sir, go for the GIBRALTAR.

If you have a higher budget range, go for the PEARL (but it's all in all the same if you ask me)

If you have a low budget, you can try creating your own with Pipes and Clamps from the hardware store. there's a thread here regarding that DIY Project. Just use the search button :D

hope this helps! :D

Hello Brother, you have the TRAPS Drumset being distributed by lyric. SO far siya yung alam kong pinakamalapit sa Pearl RT Series (i.e., portable, mas maliit, etc)

Sir, best cymbal bags I've seen are the MEINL Cymbal Bag and the STAGG Cymbal Bag. lahat naman sir almost the same, pero try to consider these items when buying a cymbal bag:

1. May dividers ba per cymbal? (meaning, hindi magkakadikit ang cymbals sa loob ng bag?)
2. Matibay ba ang material na ginamit?
3. Matibay ba ang moving parts ng bag? (I.e. ZIPPERS, Handles)
4. Water repellant ba ang material na ginamit?
5. Makapal ba ang padding nung bag itself?
6. Kasya ba lahat ng cymbals ko?
7. Kasya ba ang width ng cymbals ko?

yan yung mga tinitingnan ko when I purchase cases for my babies. kung bibili ka lang kasi ng bag, might as well yung magtatagal na :)

BTW, I'm using a STAGG Cymbal bag. 22", heavily padded, decent moving parts, nylon, with dividers and a separate pocket for smaller cymbals like splashes and hihats.

Jungle Kits nga ata ang hanap mo brother man! :D mas okay nga yun kesa sa TRAPS and PEARL RT. :)

Anong jungle kit brand ang may reliable na hardware? Around 20k-30k budget. Thanks!

question lang po about sa stagg cymbals. very interested po ako sa stagg as so far nakarinig po ako ng stagg cymbals and yes maganda nga sila at mura pa. pero dahil sa nasanay ako sa zildjian and sabian na merong ZBT and B8 (entry level cymabls) meron din bang ganito ang stagg? pumunta kasi ako sa website nila eh pero hindi naka specify kung anong cymbal line up ung entry ung sa pro. or baka nagkakamali ako at lahat sila pang pro na at nag iiba na lang para sa ibat ibang genre? thanks po  :)

Hello Sir!

Regarding stagg cymbals, as far as I know, wala silang model na made out of B8 bronze like ZBT and B8. Usually lahat ng models nila made off B20 Bronze. pero that does not mean na dahil B20 Bronze na siya, eh pro level na siya. the SH Models of stagg are meant for intermediate players as far as I recall. yung mga MYRA nila yung pang professional level.

But then again, there's no such thing as Professional or beginner cymbals. if you like what you hear, and you can afford it, BUY IT! :) hope this helps brother. :)

Replied to you via the LAZER Products Thread!

Same Price with the TAMA and MEINL Cymbal Bag brother. might wanna go with the Meinl Bag. Better yet, yung kay STAGG, heavily padded na rin pero 899 PHP lang siya if I recall correctly.

Pero pinakamaganda yung kay MEINL sa mga nakita ko. ganun din ang price range. check it awt!

Hi guys, I'm a beginner sa Drums kaya I'm not that pro, marunong lang. Ano ba yung magandang drum kit na hindi expensive? Yung pang practice lang? Kasi gusto ko gumawa ng isang Mini-Studio sa bahay, for me and my friends, maybe papa-rent ko na rin. Kaya please help?

Ok din ba yung stock na GTX  o GLOBAL na drum kit? May nakita kasi ako sa Sulit. Pero if you guys prefer a good one, maybe I'll change my mind. Yung cheap lang kasi mababa yung budget. Hehe.

Thank you in advance  :-D

Title: Re: Need help drum kit for beginners.
Post by: robertshanepascual on February 28, 2014, 10:07:47 AM
Depende sayo kung ano mas prefer mong heads.
IMO, decent enough na kasi yung mga shell nung fernando kit para lumabas yung tunog ng mga Remo/Evans and the likes.

Sa Cymbals naman depende din sayo kung ano bibilin mo. Pede kang mag Zildjian ZBT's,ZHT's or Sabian b8's kung on buget ka. Pero kung meron naman go ka na dun sa mga high end na cymbals, magandang investment din yun lalo na kung itutuloy mo ang pag dudrums.
Wag na wag kang bibili ng planet Z's sayang pera mo dun.

Pero kung sa akin lang, di na ako magaaksaya ng cash sa ZBT. B8 siguro pwede or ZHT. pero yung ZBT, I'd rather get second hand staggs or istanbuls.

Hindi rin masyado nalalayo ang Bnew ZBT set sa isang set ng magandang 2nd hand cymbals eh. nasa 15-16k ang bnew na set, sabihin na nating 15.5 average. makakabili ka na ng decent set dito either staggs or istanbul hahaha

Im referring to the 14, 16, 20 sizes. the 13 14 and 18 are only good for home use eh. so kung magsheshell out ka ng 11k, tapos magigig ka rin in the long run, sayang lang din kasi malamang sa malamang ibebenta mo rin. isa pang issue kasi dito sobrang bilis mabasag ng ZBTs eh.

kung purely home use, at wala namang balak magupgrade kumbaga, siguro call na rin dun sa 3+1 hahaha

GUys our church will be buying our first drum kit this month, I have already search the forum and can still not find what I've been looking for...

Can you please help me decide what brand is best suited for our budget of P40-50k? With this budget can I already have a decent set of cymbals too?

One more thing, should I need to buy a new set of skins/drum heads to replace the skin/drum heads that came with the kit?

TIA Philmusic...

God bless everyone.
Title: Re: HELP ON BUYING OUR FIRST DRUM KIT
Post by: inigo on May 15, 2014, 11:58:35 AM
Assuming that you'll go brand new, it is best to approach a store and tell them your budget. All stores will have some sort of kit or package that fits your budget. Don't hesitate to tell them that you will be canvassing through all the stores and don't hesitate to show them your choices from the other stores.

Yes, you can have a decent set of cymbals for that budget. Make sure that you don't get a package with brass cymbals, because they break easily. Make sure that you're getting bronze cymbals. At this point, any kind of bronze will be fine... upgrade na lang later if you feel like it. If the store doesn't know what kind of metal their cymbals are, don't buy.

You don't need to replace the skins/heads if they are big brands, such as Yamaha, Pearl, Tama, PDP, DW, DDrum, etc. If they are China rebrand brands (RJ, Lazer, etc), replace the heads, because they sound like [gooey brown stuff] and are impossible to tune. For heads, Lyric has the best prices for the quality (Aquarian heads).

Maraming salamat Po sir Inigo... Yes we're eyeing for a brand new kit. 

Im afraid due to our location my choices are only limited to these brands, Pearl, Tama, Sonor and Ludwig. Of these four brands mentioned which of them are of good buy if all are of the same price range (say P35-40k)...

Unfortunately though, we only have two music stores around here.  :cry: :cry: :cry:

Ayus. Both JB and Audiophile have cymbal packages that are decent enough.

Any of those brands will be fine. Although I don't know how much their kits are nowadays. Best to ask them.

Also ask if they have a sale period coming up soon. I think may mid-year sale ang JB.

There you go bro. i agree with what bro inigo said. my advise is to get a pearl or gretsch kit with ZBT Cymbals if you're eyeing for bnew kits. These are from JB Music.

or a Basix or DrumCraft kit from LAZER then get a cymbal set like istanbul.

It seems that JB Music, Centrio Mall Cagayan de Oro staff doesnt want to have a sell. My queries for their available drum kits falls on deaf ears... Just asking for a price list ng mga available drum kits nila at Cymbals para makapagpili, hindi na ako sinagot hehehehe.... Busy lang siguro o di kaya play money siguro itong pera ko hehehe

talk to the manager. music store employees are lazy and wont entertain you. they dont care if they make a sale or not, their wages remain the same regardless

Sa Tama Rhythm Mate ako, dahil lang sa dimensions ng toms. Mas shallow sya, so mas maraming flexibility sa positioning.

Tingin ko in other functional aspects, pareho lang sila ng Pearl Target.

Parang nakalamang ang Tama Rhythm Mate, I think I would go for the Tama and then buy a set of cymbals, or piece by piece kaya?

If I would go with this route, kasya kaya ang 40K
1.Stagg 14”SH Rock Hihat or Istanbul HHS 14” Hihat,
2. Stagg Classic Series 16” thin crash
3. Istanbul ML Ride 20” or Sabian b5 Pro 20” Medium Ride

Or bili na lang ako nito Sabian 35003 B8 Pro Performance Set.

Akala ko madali lang ang bumili ng drumkit, and hirap pala hehehe

May iba naman sabi swertehan lang rin sa nakuhang model. Well isa ako sa mga swerte, mag 4 years na saken yung Gretsch Catalina Maple ko, okay na okay pa rin. Ilang beses ko na rin nagamit sa gigs at jamming, hindi pa naman niya ko pinahiya o napahiya. Hehe.

Anyway, hindi ko rin naman sinasabing mali ka sa opinion mo, ako po mismo nakasubok na ng Tama. Maganda rin mga hardware niya. Kanya kanyang trip lang rin talaga eh. Mas trip ko Gibraltar. :cool:

Pangarap ko yang Gretsch signature ni lolo Vinnie. :-( Kaso napakamahal. Nung pinagiipunan ko na para sumugal ng napakalaking halaga, walangya, bigla naman siyang umalis sa Gretsch. Wala na ring ginagawang signature set niya. Kahit nga yung signature snare niya sa Gretsch wala na rin. Sobrang rare. :-(

Haha. Wala nakong balita sa kanya. Dibale pag natyempuhan ko minsan. Hehe

Ot:
Based sa sinabi ng Gretsch, wala silang sariling hardware. Gibraltar lang talaga ang gumagawa para sa kanila. Pero sa ibang nakita ko naman, may hardware ang Gretsch na tatak Gretsch mismo at wala ni isang sticker o logo ng Gibraltar. Actually meron sa site nila eh. Mga mounting hardware na Gretsch, tas yung iba Gibraltar na.

Pero sana yan na yung last mo na "hindi makapaghintay" situation. Hehe.  :-D
Everything is worth the wait brod.. Lalo na sa musical instrument, you gotta trust me on this.
Hindi panget ang Tama Rhythm Mate, baka lang kung nakita mo si Imperial Star, mas nagustuhan mo siya ^-^

Short OT lang:
Gustong gusto kong kit non pa lang, Gretsch na. May pera pambili, pero kulang. Yan na, dumating nako sa "hindi makapaghintay" moment. Nalaman ko, mas mura pala itong Yamaha Gigmaker. Sabi ko ito na lang para may drums na, di nako makapaghintay eh. May nagpayo saken, wag daw. Di daw dahil sa panget ang gigmaker, pero dahil sa hindi naman talaga yon ang gusto ko. So ako ito, napaisip. Tama nga yung nagpayo. Konting tiis pa, iniisip naten matagal kasi araw, linggo, buwan ang bibilangin. Pero mabilis lang ang panahon ngayon brod. Ayun, nagulat na lang ako ayan na kumpleto na ang pambili ng Gretsch. Sarap gamitin, kasi yon talaga ang gusto ko.

don't worry about keyholing basta may sleeve yung stands mo...and don't tighten the nuts too much, let your cymbals sway including the hihats  :-D

I think you should be more wary of the drummer's striking technique for the cymbal. wrong hitting techniques are usually to blame for cymbal damage.

Keyholes I think were done to get the sweet spot of handmade cast cymbals to stay put in one place. ZBTs are sheet cymbbals so they sound the same everywhere. Besides, you'd probably do more damage to your ZBTs by keyholing them from the get-go, especially if you don't know what you're doing. Felts and sleeves lang kailangan mo. And those plastic fishtank hoses, for emergencies  :)

Good day Sir

Please give me the cheapest items na maiirecommend nyo below.

1 Planet Z Cymbals Set
1 Snare Drum Stand
1 Hihat Stand
1 Bass Pedal
1 Remo Drumhead Pack(for Fernando Standard drumset)

12k lang po budget ko. Kaya ba? kasi hinde nagrereply mga taga JB music sa message ko  :cry:

Thanks..
whoah. uhm. get everything secondhand like harugrugrug said, except the heads. see if you can get ZBTs or B8s for cheap instead of the Planet Zs.
Title: Re: First Time Gear Buyer Questions Here!
Post by: Ralph_Petrucci on June 03, 2014, 01:29:43 PM
Abot budget mo,pero invest on 2nd hand items.yung skin na lang I brand new mo.

Totally agree with this.

My suggestions would be:

1 ZBT/B8 Second hand set (This would cost around 8k if you're lucky. thats for a 14 Hats, 16 crash and 20 ride.)

1 Snare Drum Stand - a generic snare stand from JB (Fernando) costs around 680-850 pesos. this is that one with the adjustable snare support/claw. it does the job.

1 Hihat Stand - a nice second hand would cost around 1.5k lowest. might be a gibraltar, a mapex or a sonor.

1 Bass Pedal - you can get a decent 2nd hand pedal for 800-1000 pesos. slightly used. will either be a MAPEX or a beat up pearl..

1 Remo Drumhead Pack(for Fernando Standard drumset) - snare plus 3 toms would cost you around 2.2k - 3.5k. better get these new.

All in all, the lowest amount you will be shelling out with these wants will be around 13150. stretch it to 14-15k to be safe.

keyholing is not a feature bro. its a defect that develops over time.

cymbals stay in one position kasi hindi even ang bigat ng nya, minsan talaga may mabigat na side at yun ang napupuruhan kaya nadedevelop yung keyhole especially kung wala kang ginagamit na sleeve para maprevent yung metal to metal contact ng cymbal at ng stand.

cymbals stay in one position kasi hindi even ang bigat ng nya, minsan talaga may mabigat na side at yun ang napupuruhan kaya nadedevelop yung keyhole especially kung wala kang ginagamit na sleeve para maprevent yung metal to metal contact ng cymbal at ng stand.


Exactly. keyholes are a result of unnecessary metal to metal contact between the cymbal's hold and the cymbal stand. especially with stands that have no sleeves. worse, those stands with screw threads on the sleeve.

Keyholes I think were done to get the sweet spot of handmade cast cymbals to stay put in one place... you'd probably do more damage to your ZBTs by keyholing them from the get-go, especially if you don't know what you're doing.

keyholing is not a feature bro. its a defect that develops over time.

cymbals stay in one position kasi hindi even ang bigat ng nya, minsan talaga may mabigat na side at yun ang napupuruhan kaya nadedevelop yung keyhole especially kung wala kang ginagamit na sleeve para maprevent yung metal to metal contact ng cymbal at ng stand.


Hmmm yes it's a defect that should be avoided for obvious reasons, but intentionally putting a keyhole to make it stay at a preferred position, while absurd, is possible...ewan ko, I personally won't do this... <_<...hehe this part of the thread is considered as help/tips AFTER buying the first drum kit, medyo OT medyo hindi  :-D

Mga sir, I have the picture na but its in my cellphone, medyo crappy pero its better than no picture at all hehehe...

The problem is the Lenovo laptop Im using right now doesnt have a bluetooth capability... Hanap muna ako ng ibang laptop... But I assure you guys, the pix will be uploaded this afternoon..

Now back to keyhole, saan pwede mag order ng SLEEVE or pwede ako mag DIY using any available hard plastic or rubber materials...

Thanks again mga bro...  :) :) :)

pwede naman DIY bro, use yung hose na clear na ginagamit para sa fishtanks. anything to avoid metal to metal contact between the cymbal and the stand. :D

pero cymbals sleeves, sa JB meron. Gibraltar. 195 ata per pack if im not mistaken.

I believe so sir ralph, it should be the black hard plastic sleeve where your bottom cymbal felt is resting on... in turn, your cymbal is resting on this bottom cymbal felt...yung sleeve kasi ng Tama may disk na integrated sa gitna pangsalo sa felt and weight of the cymbal...kung walang sleeve i could imagine dudulas pababa yung bottom cymbal felt together with your cymbal...based on your pictures mukha namang steady yung cymbals so there has to be something holding them up, and my guess is it's the sleeve, and baligtaran yan so you actually have 2 sleeves na lalaspagin, isa sa taas and isa sa ibaba  :-D

don't use the Zildjian Cleaner bro, nakakatanggal siya ng logos ng cymbals which will dramiatically reduce the resale price of your cymbals.

best to use the MEINL Cymbal Cleaner. AFAIK, okay daw siya with all cymbals tapos di nakakatanggal ng logos :D

Sir...I've read what sir ralph is saying a lot of times already, so i'd listen to him if i were you... if you want to keep your cymbals clean, why not get a cymbal bag instead...after use, wipe your cymbals with a soft, dry cloth then store them in the bag...di masyadong dudumi cymbals mo...

unfortunately I don't practice this myself kasi tamad ako  :oops: wag mo ko gayahin...

Pero narerealize ko sa thread na mas madami maganda na beginner's crash.

Sa aling brand po kaya maganda i trade in yung planet z? Maganda pa sya makintab na makintab pa and hawak ko pa receipt. Three times pa lang nagamit. Nung ngpaevent ang compny namin sa bkb , bring your own daw kaya napabili ako. Sa practice di ko ginagamit since maganda naman cymbals ng august 8 studio.

Stagg SH series. Sabian B8/B8 Pro or Zildjian ZBT or Meinl MCS/MB8.  Although sa tingin ko mas mahal pa yung mga B8 cymbals so try scouting for Stagg SH first.

As to trading in the Planet Z, medyo mababa ang resale/trade value nyan, so expect to shell out a good amount for your new cymbals.

BEGINNER CYMBALS:

I'd get an Istanbul RADIANT or ISTANBUL SAMATYA Set. they usually sound decent.

The SHs, for me are an intermediate players choice kasi mejo inconsistent sounding ang cymbals ni stagg. kailangan piliin kung ano maganda, build and sound wise. coming from planetZ kasi, most bronze cymbals will sound decent to you, eh baka mamaya sobrang dark, or sobrang thrashy na yung makuha mo bro, you'll most probably be selling the staggs din as your taste matures.

The ZBTs and the B8s are great choices as well. dito talga, wala ka nang sugal sugal. sure ka na it will sound as close to the other boxes or other cymbals na zbt or b8. yun nga lang, malamang ibebenta mo rin to as your taste matures.

Best advice: get Istanbuls or Zildjian A/Ks or basta cast cymbals. you can try looking at our classifieds. :)

15-18k secondhand. sometimes going as low as 10k per set. mint.  (there was a forumer who sold his for 10k :O damn. sayang.)

bnew goes for around 20k per set.

sure, may tonal inconsistencies, but not as inconsistent as stagg SHs. SH kasi, you can get something sounding like the K custom, and you can get something that sounds like stock fernendo cymbals. (based on experience)

Tama yung mga sumagot sa inquiry mo. They know it too well. Stagg fits with this, you just have to use your ears in deciding what size and model are you going to buy. Tried and tested na saken. From then on, puro stagg cymbals na meron sa kit ko.

For more experienced buyers with cash to burn, or who already went through with a lot of GAS, they know where the bang for buck really lies. Wala nang brand loyalty just because it's famous. Bawat use case at sound profile may brand na nag-eexcel at napipili.

then, i discovered staggs and istanbuls. fell in love with the SH Mediums (Sounds like vintage Ks). Then I heard the istanbuls. the sultans, the radiants, and the traditionals. wala na. bang for the buck talaga.

 Ako din! I used to love all a customs! When I got an inspirational pack,I was like,huhhhn?
I sold it all except my k custom ride,ayun k customs,k and a ang cymbals ko,hehe.
If money wasn't a concern and variety,I would go for sabians
Pero if I wasn't oc on brand,I would go for mix of k,sultans,dh,and hhx. :cute:

Question po:

any tips when selecting cymbals by tone, inside the store? I'm planning to upgrade some of my B8s to Staggs or Istanbuls, pero alam ko malaki yung influence ng room sa overall sound nya. Especially the drier cymbals, baka ayos sa showroom tapos ultra dry pala sa bahay.

bring your favorite current cymbal. pagtest mo sa store, pag okay siya with your current cymbal, it'll most probably be good.

ako, isa ko pang testing technique, I make sure na walang walls na malapit sakin para hindi maging exaggerated ang overtones nung cymbal. dun ko malalaman yung closest sound niya in an open environment. then, I test in a corner para malaman ko kung ano magiging tunog sa maliit na bar gigs. lastly, i have the sales guy hit it while im around 5-7 steps away from him para marinig ko kung ano naririnig ng audience ko. and honestly, eto ung mga series na sobrang consistent, near or far:

STAGG SH Crashes and Splashes
STAGG CS
ISTANBUL RADIANT
ISTANBUL SAMATYA
ISTANBUL SULTAN
ISTANBUL TRADITIONAL
SABIAN AAX
SABIAN HHX
ZILDJIAN K Custom (yung luma ah. yung mga bago... meh.)
ZILDJIAN A Custom

Old stock lang daw sir sa bodega with some very minor/negligible dents and smudges tapos yung snare is ibang model (force 2001) pero same color "as is" binebenta ng store.  Checked the item personally and it's good overall.  Pagnilinis magiging brand new na hitsura.

Bibili kasi ako ng drum set. Hanap ko ay mura pero quality. Ah, mali. Quality at mura, ayun. :)) Hindi ko alam kung saan magsisimula, kung set ba ang dapat bilhin o
isa-isa lang. Kung saan mas makamumura? Ano ba dapat mga tignan? Gusto ko entry-level. Maganda sa recording. Hindi ako maalam kung ano dapat mga tignan, gitara kasi hawak ko. Kaya ayun, patulong naman. :)

The first thing to determine is the budget bro. :cool:
Then we start there. As for entry level na brand new we go around 30k-40k with cymbals
For 2nd hand that same budget would get you a good middle class drums already.
If it's for recording purposes a good kit is better but if you have good mixing skills it wouldn't matter that much
Ang tanung ko sir budget. Then we start there. :-D

Hi first time buyer here. Sa bahay ko lang naman gagamitin yung kit, for jamming lang.
Di ako marunong tumingin ng kahit ano sa drums eh, gitarista talaga ako.
Worth it na ba to (http://talk.philmusic.com/index.php?topic=316816.0) or magfefernando nalang ako?
May nabasa din kasi ako dito na ok na rin yung mga fernando pero papalitan nalang yung mga heads if di kuntento sa tunog.
Or, Edrums nalang tulad ng mga Ringway since sa bahay lang naman gagamitin.

Also, complete na ba tong kit na to, I mean cymbals nalang bibilhin.

Please help mga kapatid, maraming salamat.   :)

Looks good. i'd get this. naka evans na, may A ROCK HATS na, i think kasama na rin hardware kasi KIT ang sabi niya hindi shellpack. best to ask the seller. sobrang steal nito pag may hardware na rin. better buy it at 18k.

Looks good to me. If the bearing edges (the part of the wood that touches the heads) arent damaged, and the hardware isn't loose or has hidden rust spots, or missing anything, then it's good. You'd have to pay the kit a visit though. It's a Sonor, so brand isn't an issue. I'd take it now if it's true he'll throw in the A rock hats (if it's in good condition too). It's the exact same config as the stock Yamaha Gigmaker I have, so complete na yan by your definition, isang boom stand na lang at ride and crash cymbals ang bibilhin mo.

May nagbebenta dyan ng Medeli DD505 pero bibili ka pa ng amp powerful enough to play with your guitar and bass amps. So medyo pantay lang ang gastos mo.

Personally kukunin ko yung Sonor. Kung resale value pa lang, yung hi hats pa lang ayos na ako.

I'd still go for the sonor. Yung heads nung Tama kit looks beat up na. yung sa sonor kit, you're getting evans g2's na. plus yung avedis rockhat talaga. the cymbals with the tama are those generic brass cymbals na you wouldn't like using bro. 2 cents lang naman.

For the good ones, syempre there's Meinl and LP. if you can get secondhand LP's go for it! kung sa budget naman, STAGG has great Chimes and Cajons for the budget musician. don't buy those cheapo RJ stuff.

AFAIK, meron ding mga nagcucustom ng Cajon. you might wanna check their stuff out.

MEINL - Lyric
LP - JB Music
Stagg - The Music Source

Bnew, mejo mahal si meinl and LP. Second hand lang alam ko. around 5kish for a cajon and 2k for chimes.

Stagg, around 2-3k ang bnew na cajon, 1-2k ang bnew nilang chimes. very decent IMHO. Wala pa akong nakikitang nagbebenta ng stagg. either maganda talaga siya for them, or they don't bother to sell kasi dirt cheap naman chaka mahirap ibenta kasi nga its an entry level brand. unless palugi. hahaha

Hi guys!

My family (brother and father) will be buying our first drum set, complete with cymbals. BTW, sa akin naka toka ang cymbals so I would like to ask your opinions (ayoko kasi mapahiya haha!).

1. Budget will be 15k to 20k.
2. Brand and category (low end to high end).
3. Generality/ease of use (could be used on different genres)
4. Location (whether in Raon or malls).

Of course, I would like to maximize the budget. Kung meron ako makuha na high end or mid end na magandang set would be best. Plus, may nakikita ako na mga set na may +1 or free na cymbal kasama in box, I would just like to clarify din if ok ung quality ng mga ganung set.

Thanks in advance! :)

Kung kaya ng budget ang Istanbuls, go for those, pag medyo di kasya, Stagg DH or SH in that order  :) These are very good cast cymbals for the price, the ones from the big brands easily cost more than twice the price. Because these are handmade (also not a bad thing), give them a test run just to weed out the bad ones. Try to stay away from Zildjian ZBTs or Sabian B8s; they will definitely fit into the budget as they are "student models", but don't sound really good, and are quite shrill. Zildjian ZHT is priced too high for the sound.

Those ones with free cymbals aren't really much of a deal if they're ZBTs and B8s (pag mga Zildjian A/K or Sabian AA/HH ok yan). A basic trio set (hi hat pair, ride, crash) of high quality is a much better choice.

As for the "ease of use," Istanbuls sound pretty great on anything actually, so does the Stagg DH line. Stagg SH is great for pop, rock, metal, punk, electronic, acid jazz, funk, the kind that doesn't demand too much complexity.

Istanbuls are available in Lyric, Staggs are available in The Music Source (sa cubao andun lahat ng major music shops)  :)

I will visit today ung stores to check out the deals and will post again kung alin ung kinuha ko :D

Anyway, hirap pa din father and brother ko sa good set na bibilihin nila (haha!). They are eyeing for a Gretsch Catalina Maple/Ash na 6pc sana, mga nasa ganung level pero I think meron pang mas better. Any suggestions?

Oh those B8 Pros are horrible, for me at least. Too much ping and way too bright. And of course, still a beginner cymbal. Zildjian ZHT naman is the Sabian APX equivalent, though B10 ang ZHT at B8 ang APX, ZHT isn't really targeted to professionals and is marketed as an intermediate cymbal line. It has its place though, pang metal/hard rock, parang budget version ng Zildjian Z line.

with regards sa drums, mas mahirap pumili dahil may brand loyalties yan. ako Pearl guy ako (kahit Yamaha ang nasa bahay  :eek: ), so Pearl ang iaadvise ko  :lol: Tama and Yamaha are popular choices here too

Regarding your kit, aside from Pearl and Tama, try also Sonor, available sa JB or Salonga, I'm a Sonor guy.  :)

Hi guys I'm back!

I got the Istanbul Mehmet Samatya set ok na ba un? 23K from Lazer (thanks to my xmas bonus!).

BTW, wala pa din kaming drumset. Haha! :eek: hirap brother and father ko humanap ng set. So your suggestions are Pearl, Tama, Yamaha. I have some variants to consider (their budget 40K max) :

1. Pearl Target or better (hindi nila type ung tom racks ng model na to) - JB MUSIC or??
2. Tama (wala pang variant and we are not aware where to get one)
3. Yamaha Gigmaker (OK ba ang quality and sound nito? Nice hardware tho.) - YUPANGCO

What we want from our budget is quality drums with good hardware and good wood. We know we won't get the best from the budget we got, pero at least macompensate based in the quality of the drums itself.

Thanks in advance and thanks for all the infos guys! :)

Congratulations bro! that's a great cymbal set! :D

now for the kit, IMHO, best bets for me would be the TAMA Superstar. I think pasok naman sa budget.


you can visit audiophile to see the TAMA Kits. my advice din, you can look at second hand kits :) para mas makamura ka :) kung gusto mo ng second hand kits, we can help you choose :D maraming mint condish kits dun na pamigay hahahaha :D

Hey good to hear from you again. Going with the Samatyas is not a bad decision at all, compared to what's available now in the market. That's bang for the buck for sure.

About your kit naman...personally you may want to look for something a notch higher than entry or student level kits like the Target/Gigmaker...try checking out the silverstar or superstar of Tama, or the Ludwig Epic...the key is go around and check what's available...and if you're open to acquiring a 2nd hand kit, ok din since there are some quality 2nd hand kits being offered here sa for sale thread...good luck and hope you find what you're looking for! ; )

gaano katagal na sya sa inyo?
matibay ba yung lugs?(hindi ba nasisira pagtagal at pag naitono ng mataas?)
okay ba yung hardware?(cymbal/snare stand)
okay ba yung shells? lalo na yung bearing edge?
okay ba yung hoops? hindi ba madaling mabend?

mejo magiging positive pala para sa akin yung die cast hoops ng superstar kasi panget ang acoustics sa room na paglalagyan ko ng drums. at isa pa mas control siguro yung soud pag die cast pag magrerecord? tama ba?

diecast hoops will not help you. besides its always better - no, not better - ITS ALWAYS BEST to acoustically treat your room first. kahit di ka magrerecording.

kung mareverb, add a lot of:
1. absorbers - carpet, kurtina, sofa, unan
2. diffusers - bookshelves

Nagtingin ako sa channel.com.ph para sa reference ng price. Yung tama silverstar naabot ng 37k-41k hindi kaya ng budget. May 30% discount kasi yung meridian kaya pasok sa budget ko. E kaso walang available na hehe malas.
Btw, eto yung review sa mapex horizon hx:
http://m.musicradar.com/reviews/drums/mapex-horizon-hx-drum-kit-260029/ (http://m.musicradar.com/reviews/drums/mapex-horizon-hx-drum-kit-260029/)
Okay lang ba ang basswood shell? Advantage nung horizon brand new yun at may hardware na. Kaso basswood shell lang. Pero yung superstar ni sir peeves birch tapos naka die cast at mukang talagang long lasting yung hardwares kaso shell pack lang(may kasama naman na 2 lazer stand) at hindi ko masyadong gusto yung sizes.

Kung okay naman ang pwedeng makuha kong tunog sa basswood shell ng horizon. Malamang maghorizon na ako. Makukuha ko naman siguro yun sa drum heads at proper tuning diba?

Pinag-isipan ko din yung TRAPS, pero parang kulang sa beef, pang practice lang. tingnan ko rin kung ano ang setup ni Weckl ngayon, alam ko naka 18 kick sya currently, ok naman yung tunog, di lang pang metal. I might look at the Tama, kasi lagi mo namemention yung lugs ng gretsch  :roll: anong model name nila ang club/jr size?

i personally whacked the [gooey brown stuff] out of a traps kit. malakas siya paps. tunog real kit na. you just have to mic the bass bass drum para ramdam na ramdam. imho kasi yung 18 mabibitin ka talaga kasi hindi na siya as boomy as you'd want it.

yung sa gretsch, catalina yung nakita kong club kit. yung sa tama, superstar model siya.

tap an aquarian head and compare against remo/evans/any other manufacturer. tap pa lang ulam na.

that should explain where the sound is coming from. the head itself has a sound

kaso madali mag dull yung tunog ng aquarian. 6 months average lang sa kin and im not a heavy player.

sa longevity lang nananalo si remo vs aquarian. evans talaga olats in all angles hahahaha

A drum carpet is just an ordinary carpet. Just search for a carpet that will fit your setup.

I never ordered drum sets from Lazada but the better offerings there are just the same as the ones offered in major retailers like JB, Lyric, etc. you'd be better off going to a store anyway so you can check it yourself before you buy it and not have the hassle of shipping back a whole drum set to lazada.

EDIT: a smaller carpet can work as long as it covers the entire bass drum, bass pedal, and hi hat pedal.

Gibraltar okay na yan. imho, depende sa preference mo kung belt, chain or direct.

for me, belt is the best kasi smooth.

Anyway, curious lang. Nag-order kasi ako sa Lazada last week ng RJ Drumset and this week na yata madeliver.

Ok kaya ang RJ Drumset? Di ba madali masira yung hardware niya? Maingat naman ako sa aking mga instruments pero iba kasi pag drum na.

Salamat sa mga sasagot! Keep on rockin'!

hardware mgkakatalo paps, lalo na sa hihat stand at cymbal stands. ang tip ko lang, easy lang sa paghigpit ng mga locks and nuts nung mga stands dahil madali malose thread.

good luck sa drumming adventure mo paps!

additional tip: palitan mo yung "skin" or drum heads para gumanda tunog :D

hi everyone. i'm completely newbie pagdating sa drums, since gitara ang main instrument ko
a while back, we were able to play in a venue kung saan yung drum throne ay connected to a metronome-type device.
the way it works, kapag nakaupo ka sa drum throne at nagstart yung metronome, mararamdaman mo yung vibration/beats sa drum throne mismo. in short, ramdam mo yung bayo ng metronome beat sa upuan mismo.

ano ang tawag sa ganung device? any leads as to where I can buy that device in manila?
thanks in advance!

It's called an LFE (low frequency effects) transducer. Most popular brand is the Buttkicker (because it makes the throne vibrate). It's usually used to replace the giant ass kick drum monitor. Also used to replicate the rumble of guitar cabs onstage (John Petrucci uses one on stage).

Ewan ko lang kung saan nakakabili. Amazon? :lol:

thanks for the info,  bro.
i don't exactly recall, but i don't know if the throne has an attached device (like the buttkicker) in the venue.
it probably has one. all i remember are the wiring extending from the throne.
medyo mahal din pala.

another question.
where can i get an affordable drum throne in manila?

go to daichi showroom sa 5th ng megamall. ask for the aura shaker pero warning na rin, sobrang expensive ng price nila kahit locally made yung item. mas mura kung bibili ka na lang sa madisound or partsexpress tapos paship mo dito

o kaya bili ka na lang ng soundbrenner metronome para mas portable. check it out sa https://www.facebook.com/nelldenmusic/

hindi ko pa natesting na gawing trigger. siguro pag nakabili na ako ng mic. mostly metal ang genre. kung mahirapan na magcut sa mix. mag parallel compression na lang ako. at kung mahirap talaga magcut sa mix. try ko i-replace ng vst samples at gawin kong trigger ang mic

kung metal paps, advise ko itrigger mo nalang. use a mic + drumagog. pero kailangan 1 mic per drum part.

hindi naman paps. may option naman through Drumagog to mix in the original signal para maging organic pa din yung tunog eh. tapos regarding dynamics, set mo lang ng maayos yung threshold para sa velocity. nawa'y consistent pumalo si drummer niyo though :D

- What can you recommend is a good cajon?
- Is it really that much better to get a premium brand? (Like guitarwise, getting an Ibanez is better than a Fernando/RJ/etc)..
- Any review and price info for these two local makers: Cajon De Manila (https://www.facebook.com/cajon.demanila), and Cajon Drum Philippines / Repub-Likha (https://www.facebook.com/Cajon-Drum-Philippines-560155927337228/home)

There's LP and Meinl. the locally made cajons are okay, however, ang lagging problem is either makapal masyado yung front na wood, or walang "depth" or ibang tunog other than the bass and the slap.

in the end paps, you get what you pay for. kung non technical tug tug pak lang naman, you're good with a cheaper alternative. if you plan to do those colorful perc patterns, then you might wanna consider getting the good ones.

rim mounted toms will sing/ring better than a shell mounted tom. rim mounted toms allow for maximum vibration of the shell with no hindering/retarding factors.

less screws and butas sa toms = better sounding toms (almost always)

imho, kung to begin with eh shell mounted na ang tom, mejo hindi rin sobrang significant ng effect to upgrade it with a Rim mount system. unless I seseal mo rin ynug mga butas nung tom galing sa shell mount system niya.
