what Do you feel the advantages or disadvantages are of playing a custom kit or a name brand kit
I agree with him...there is nothing left to say....but other drummers keep trying to change my mind. Its all the same. good sounding drums are good sounding drums regardless of name brand or custom.drummert2k":38nvpf54 said:have a name brand company build you a custom kit to your specs. its the best of both worlds. all drum companies basically started as "custom companies" i'm sure the Pearl company wasn't thought up one day and by the next day a huge company endorsing drummers and selling tons and tons of kits. who's to say a small custom drum company wont blow up and become a huge company? as for advantages and disadvantages, i guess the only thing i can think of would be playing a kit that everyone doesn't recognize the name. but sound and quality wise, a lot of the custom companies out there are right up there with the huge companies. big companies like dw, pearl, yamaha, spaun, gretsch, truth, precision, OCDP, maryland, ludwig, are a whole lot like some of the smaller custom companies you see, only without the name to back it up.
