Welcome to the forum pjwortham

What drum kit do you play and what's your genre of music?

I have a DW WMP 4 piece. Keller, with 22,12,16, 14 snare. I am all over the map with genre, but mostly P&W, 70-80s British rock, country, pop.

Re: Newbe


Not necessarily any one thing in particular. Maybe just some real world differences between birch vs. maple. My DW is/was expensive, and thought that I would be pleased with the sound, but not so much. Probably because I am not "tweaking" something just right. Did not realize how thin the shells were, and just can seem to get them to project like my old Yamaha Stage Customs that cost 1/3 the $.

Re: Newbe


Excellent focus, pj. I'm gonna let the guys who really know shells speak to that.

But you might want to check out another thread on site here called "High End Drums vs. Mid" which is currently underway.

And moderators, should this discussion of dw shells sound and birch vs. maple be moved out of "Drummer Introductions" to another thread?
