Re: Hello from Newfoundland :D


Hi. Me again.
Looks like im not going to be able to get enough money for the set I wanted Heres some used sets I was looking at. Heres the descriptions:
Vex 5 pce.
2 boom stands, Gibraltar dbl kick pedals, Sabian AA crash, Sabian B8 crash, Sabian B8 hats, Sabian ride (not sure which type), and a Sabian AA splash. $450


CB 5 pce.
5 symbals, all Sabian B8's, (crash, ride, hats, splash and chinese.) Comes with a few scattered accessories like a cowbell. He says cymbals alone were over $600, asking $550 for everything.

I don't know which one is the better deal, ill be going to check both sets out for myself. I think im more geared towards the Vex, even though Ill have to look up the durability of both brand names because I dont know which name is better.

Too bad you live so far away. I have a extra set of Pearl Export EX for sell. They are good kits. Of coarse I love my Pearl Reference kit but that took almost 35 years to get that :-). I know I am a Pearl person but the Eliminator is a really good pedal. I am using a Pearl Eliminator double pedal and really like it. I also agree with Guss buy cymbals seperatly. 1 at a time if you have to. I believe in getting stuff you really want slowly as long as ou have something to practice and play with now. No pun intended.

Re: Hello from Newfoundland :D


Hey man no worries about the powerbeat, its an all-right brand, i got a mix of different skins, i got pro Remo on snare, powerbeat for all 3 toms, and DXPercussion on Bass drum (which is like a cheap immitation of powerbeat)
also skinslapper my pedal (kicker) is falling apart too lol...

i got a tip for you, it doesnt matter what brand cymbal u buy, just go into a music shop and hit the one you want lightly, if it sounds good to you, buy it. i got a bargain on mine by doing that

Re: Hello from Newfoundland :D


some of the oldest(does age relly matter) AND smartest drummers, have mixed cymbal kits, i say if you want all of the same kind, get endorced, and have them clipping your toenails for you too.
