your situation has atleast one the following

A)your drummer is a pussy with weak arms
B)your drums are quieter than average
C)your amps are tube/louder than average

also just fyi, 100 watts is only twice as loud as 10 watts

Well it deffinately aint the drummer being a pussy because he is well a fairly hard hitter lets say, lol, he is a bit of a tank, being a number 8 and all ( rugby for all you yanks :P) and the drums is a pearl export 22inch rock set with a set of thin cymbals ( l;ouder for u idiots ou there), and i duno about the amps, but they just the random cheap 50quid ones, so i doubt it will be tube, its probs cause he plays slap bas, with ALOT of treble insteed of alot of bass, so it might be that, but i duno
yeh i duno, i think im gona get the mapex, becuase it looks etter, atchally has a ncier sound even with the factory top heads and it comes with B8s, so yeh, i think i will get that
apose to the pearl; which comes with thsoe SHIT pearl hi hats and just a crash ride, what sthatchat about? lol
RATE MINE!, melonade
the metropolitinas
concrete feet!
yeh i no,, but the mapex kit i have heard is ment to atchally be a nicer kit, cause its a fusion of birch and basswood, insteed of the epral which is just basswood, but i duno
Hey guys
big decisions
do i buy the peral export 5 piece for £419 or do i get the mapex 6piece for £400
its not really the price of the drums or the extra tom on the mapex i care about, its which sound better
so which do?
yeh tahst wht i was thinking, plus they have a deal on now where ya get an etxra crash for free!, i think im gona go with that!
guys rate my ones!, lol
melondae or the metropolitains
hey, i dont see the problem with people sayig drums are loud,
i have played in alot of band, and at the momment i am in a rock band and a jazz project thing
in the jazz band we have a rock durmmer for some reason, but we can still hear un miced trumpets and trombones as well as the piano on a shitly lil keyboard and the bass on a 20watt stagg, so yeh i dont see the probs,
also with my rock back we use the same 20watt bass, a 15 watt for the guitar and two 15watt guitars linked togetehr for the mic, and it comes out atchally almost two loud!, i think people omnly want the big amps for the effects and the fact u can fine tune it more, but what we have is fine m8

My gear
- stagg bass with 20watt amp
- Weasly acric strat style guitar ( see though thing)
- 15 watt fender frontman amp
- 30watt marshal DFX
- sesson pro drum kit with solar cymbals ( soon to be a bitch mapex with B8s!!!!)
- Horn bass trombone
- yamaha tenor trombone
yeh, er we dont have a solid name, but at the momment we are calling ourself the metropolitains, or mabe melonade, not sure lol
but yeh, all the places around us only take 18 up wards i think, i will call around, but its hard u, no,. lol
