we use yamaha. I personally think each company has a certain instrument they do best. For Dynasty, I think it's the basses, yamaha: tenors, and pearl: snares.

We use Pearl, with the 13X9 snares and ultra light basses and tenors. But we are also a middle school so the stuff has to be lightweight. Before we bought those, we marched a Band Review using SCV's equipment and two of the kids collapsed because the drums were too heavy for them!

Well its like this. Yamaha doesnt make the best tenors snares AND basses, just like dynasty pearl and what not dont make the best of all three drums. Well... dynasty is real nice... but lets talk about not spending a fortune here. Pearl makes the best sounding snares, i think most of us can agree with that. Personally, i think older yahamas sound better than new pearl and yamaha tenors. But when it comes to bass, personally i like the comfy and precise sound yamaha provides, while pearl seems to have louder basses. Now dynasty just makes good drums, end of discussion. But ive noticed most high schools use pearl snares, yamaha tenors and yamaha basses.

I would take Pearl drums in all sections hands down. But that is just a personal preference due to the sound I want to hear and the way I tune. I can deal with Yahama's if I have (which at some schools I do) but I do not like Dynastys one bit.

Well all our drums are white... so its not like a sore thumb or sumthing. We have the same company for each drum... like 6 pearl snares 4 yamaha tenors and 7 pearl basses so the sections match... you can check it out and see for yourself: http://f1.pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/lionsd ... m=6b1c.jpg

There is nothing that says this is just a drum brand thread, so im gonna take the risk people wont yell at me for changing this.... here goes...
What sticks do you think are the best? Pro-mark? Vic Firth? what types ? Personally, I like the feel of MS2's. (i hate the ralphs... so very much)

As far as drums go I am very much a fan of staying with the same brand through the whole line. I think pearl makes the best drums in all sections if you know how to use them. For instance, with the popular indoor tuning that most WGI lines use right now the pearls have the most articulate sound on all their drums. The basses really have to be played by good players to get a smooth sound from drum to drum. I like the sound of dynasty basses as well but you lose some of the tone. I personally don't like the sound of the yamaha basses but like all of yamaha's drums they hide dirt really well. Dynasty snares and tenors also have a very thick sound that hide dirt and don't really do it for me sound wise. As far as for my favorite sticks I am a big fan of Innovative Percussion's sticks and mallets. The Jim Casslla series is awsome for the pit. Their indoor bass mallets are outstanding. You can still get the impact and sound of the outdoor mallets while getting the articulation of the vic firth and pro mark indoor mallets. The Mike Macintoshes are very articulate and light and provide an excellent indoor sound. I like the Vic-Firth Vega's for tenors inside because of their slightly-softer sound and clear sound.

lol drums hiding dirt... I like the method of playing clean to hide dirt better... But anywho for snares I like Floats, for tenors I like VF MT1 or Vegas, and for drum set I like Peter Erskine ride stick or Akira Jimbos.
