Any news of the new Rogers having full kits at NAMM?
Tama Walnut/Birch snare with cedar outer ply. Nice looking and good price:
Halldor! Get them to put this finish on a bop kit and I'll buy it tomorrow!
Still a pre-order though. Guess I’ll have to wait.
I was just thinking the same thing! Put this veneer on an entire kit and I am sold; that is gorgeous!
Sabian announces new branding!!!
Great looking finish.
It's not been announced yet but yes, they're renaming some models and have some new logo designs. I'm pretty excited to see their new stuff; the last few years they haven't disappointed (unlike another big cymbal company...).
PDP is going to have some new finishes (like they do every year) and some hardware stuff. I think DW has already posted about the 5000 single chain pedal.
New Dynamicx Medallion Brass drums, some of which look something like this. Engraving is optional. Black nickel and Torch patina finishes.
Sabian rebranding is interesting. I always thought their logo looked a little 80's.
From what little I gathered, it's a blue finish instead of the dark grey finish of the limited edition. I could be incorrect in that it's now in the Artist Pallete catalog but that's what it looked like to me. Plus, that shell and sound profile are different enough from what Tama currently offers, that they will sell a snare or two, and not just to Deftones fans.
I said the same about the drum sound in their Dynamic Kapur and Fat Spruce demo videos from last year. In person the drums sound really good. I don't know what's going on with Tama and their videos, maybe they do three or four takes but don't spot-tune in between takes, and take three was the drummers best performance, but not necessarily the drums.
Congratulations. You have a nice kit. Tama never said they were the first on the scene with that shell config.
I really hope the boutique Mapex kits do well. Wouldn't want to deplete your stash.
Paiste is releasing a bunch of Signatures of the past for the 30th anniversary. Looking like Mellow, Crystal, Power, crashes. Some hats and rides TBD.
Cool on the Sabian re-branding. I have often wondered why the HHX costs more than AAX - seems like this should be one line of modern machine made cymbals with bright and dark models.
Aren't the HHX cymbals hand-hammered? Whereas AAX are machine-made. That is likely the reason for the price difference.
Both are machine made. The HH has some/little hand tuning. The Artisan and Artisan Elite have more hands on work.
Vater has some new sticks out, the Classics line. Based on models that they handmade back in the day before Vater was a separate company.
Not a rumor but a simple wish : 14 deep bass drums for current lines.
I know the Leviathan takes some time to turn, but it is hard to deny current tastes for more classic depths, and for good reason.
What I'm finding is that the HHX feature "hand-guided machine hammering". Whereas the AAX do not. Extra steps in the process equals extra $$$.
