Re: birch vs maple


Hey...glad too be of help.........................
The DW Classic series, according to the DW home page, are available in the "finish ply" only and list 31 finishes to choose from. Mine are finished in the champagne glass finish. A picture of my DW kit is listed in "Drum Kit Photos" in this forum, without the snare. The kit came with a matching mahogany snare, but when this photo was taken I was using a Craviotto map.

Re: birch vs maple


Many thanks. I forgot about the photos in this forum! I posted comments there when I first signed up and didn't get any responses. I later realized that I was looking at photos from members who have long since stopped participating in the forum. But I guess it's time to look at new postings.

Talking Re: birch vs maple


Hi Lukey, sorry I picked up this thread so late, but here it is:

About Bubinga: I was a little sceptical at first but then I got to play (recently) on a Tama Starclassic Bubinga kit; it sounds amazing . My own kit, the vintage Premier is birch and I really love it but if I am coming into some serious dough I will defenitively go bubinga!
A ton of tone, quite deepish but also a good volume without having to hit real hard.

Cheers and Happy drumming,

Harry

Re: birch vs maple


I'm reconsidering birch for my next kit.

Problem is the sonor 2007 doesn't come with a 18" floor tom. I plan to get around this by ordering the 18x16 bass drum and the floor tom hardware from the 3007, and frankenstine me up a monster tom for my birch kit. Whadjyall think?

Re: birch vs maple


Are the bass drums heavier shells than the toms on the 2007? I am not sure that is going to make much difference in the thundering 18" tom or not though.

Re: birch vs maple


Pretty sure they're the same thickness. No biggy though

Re: birch vs maple


The two sets ive owned for the shortest period of time were my Yamaha recording customs and Premier Genistas. I think the maple gods are trying to tell me something.
