Yeah, they also sounded fairly hollow (IMO), I mean, there were some nice ones in the bunch. But not exactly what I was looking for, perhaps I’ll check out the Vintage’s. I just don’t want something too similar to my current cymbals, both being fairly dark and dry. I want to steer away. There’s a few I wouldn’t mind however, many from Bosphorus (man do they have some nice rides).

Yeah, there's not too many Vintages on CymbalsPlus. There's no 20's anymore (thanks to me), a few nice 22"s, then a few 17"s and 19"s. It might be a little hard to see how they'll blend with your other cymbals, just listening to soundfiles.

Well
it’s a mixture of NAMM and Modern Drummers Festival. It has world-wide
drummers performances throughout the day, as well as clinics of a
morning. Then there is a very, very big expo. Nothing compared to NAMM,
but it’s still very large. Most companies have a display, except a few
of the big ones. But apparently everything there is on sale, so with
hope I’ll go around trying what I can.

Whoa, sounds good, I'd love to go to something like that. What famous drummers are going there?

Yeah, I would love to go to something like that. Just so many drummers in the same place at the same time.

It's most definitely a fantastic experience, especially the morning clinics, or 'workshops'.

Do you have to pay to get into any of the clinics or concerts, or do you get a ticket that gets you into everywhere? And which drummers are planning to see?

They have different tickets for different things, full day, expo only, full weekend, family etc. I've got a Saturday ticket, and if you follow the link it shows you those you are playing on the Saturday. I'll try and see as many as I can, though I have trouble sitting in one place for too long. Hence why I left a bit early 2-years ago, I just get all fidgety. But I'll see as many as I can, go around the expo, maybe take some pictures etc.

I'm sort of tempted to get a stave shell now. For a truer, richer, and more melodic sounding kit. Still blackwood I'd presume. A ply grain always go horizontally, and stave goes vertically, yes?

That sounds nice, do you have any idea of the price yet?

I know that stave grain always goes vertically, but there may be a few ply shells that have vertical grain too.

Oh, yeah they do. I've just been reading around with Stave vs Ply, and I like the logic behind the stave. I'm just not sure whether to do it on a whole kit, that is once I find out the price. I'll email Paul tonight. I see many with Stave and Solid snares, but not so many with kits.

It's because many people don't want to spend the time waiting or making the kit. Most people will charge an arm and a leg for one and most people will not pay for it. Also, the people that make the kits do not have a big enough audience to reach out to since all of them are pretty small.

Some more pictures for everybody’s viewing pleasure, mostly due to my sheer Friday night boredom as I must work tomorrow morning. Damnit.

Also, Levi, is this the finish you’d be going with?

Nice. It wouldn't take that long, I mean, if they are makng their own shells, it would take just as long to make the stave drums.

What were you asking about, the stave kit?

It seems like Paul replies to my emails fairly quickly, but then he ignores you Very Happy .

grrr....

I was asking about yes, the stave kits. Mostly their price. Also about some more specifics on Blackwood shells and how much mini-lugs would be as a whole (I was told $6.00 extra per lug)

OK, I'll be interested in seeing how much more expensive stave is to ply. Not that I'll be purchasing any, though.
