I have heard a lot of good things about Kansas City Drums. I have searched the net and I can't find a site that tells anything about their prices or finishes. Is there anyway to see what they have going for them? I am interested in getting a custom kit with a 24x14 kick and a 18x16 floor.

Here's a fun one...

Do you guys have house drum kits? If so which one and what kind of heads, cymbals, snare, etc.? Do you allow for drummers to bring in their kits even?

Enjoy
Jason


Hi,
I do have a house drum kit in my studio. It is a Mapex Prom M drum kit. Fusion measures (much easier to tune). I got for less than 600

Hi.  My studio has a '64 Slingerland kit (22 Kick, 12,13,16 toms) in champagne sparkle and a Premiere 14 by 5 1/2 maple snare.  I'm not a drummer but I've gotten pretty good at tuning.  I'll use different heads depending on what sound I want, but lean toward coated ambassadors on the toms, Aquarian on the kick, and control sound on the snare.  My kit gets used occasionally, and I really like it for anything of a classic rock vibe, but most bands want to use their own kit.  All in all, though, I'm finding that cheap cymbals cause far more problems for my recordings than cheap drum kits.  The cheaper Yamaha, Pearl, etc, are WAY better than they were say 10 years ago (granted, still not as good as a really great kit), and after we spend some time tuning I'm usually able to get sounds I'm happy with....assuming the drummer knows how to get good tone, etc.
