  • Comparing RB 2 and RB 3 sales charts on vgchartz, looks like RB3 does not even come close to RB2 for 1st and 2nd weeks. There is a trend downward for these types of games and the consumer dictates that aspect. Probably why the big V wants to offload…

  • IMHO I think they are about the same as an RB2 head as far as rebound. Also they are a little louder. Not to steer you as the best thing to do is to try it. If your into mod,s a mesh head might be your best bet but, to my knowledge for an ION ->…
  • Zil dips are nice, but Vic Firth dips last longer as far as the grip. The grips on the Zils wear out to fast IMO..
  • Go to a music store and have her try out a few pairs. Get her to pick out what is most comfortable or feels right. I would pick out couple of different sizes. If you have silencers the tips won't matter much. Lot of people prefer nylon tipped. I sti…
  • My RB1 set, I cracked one of the heads, I had a RB2 set but upgraded to IONS, whether the stock kits crack or not depends on continuous beatings and how much force. I had Xcell pads on my RB 2 set, so I think a set of pads would help any eliminate …
  • Keep at it. I gave up guitar and moved to drums a while ago. I think to be good only after 7 days especially on the drums is pretty high expectations. If you get frustrated just put it down for day or two. Then come back to it. You will get it, prac…
  • Reflowing the board and getting success will have a number of factors. If the problem is a cold solder on the BGA array (cpu and gpu) application of flux will increase the success rate. From observing Youtube videos from people doing this many peopl…

  • If you decide to get the ION kit, I would go with the core kit (less cymbals) as the stock cymbals are not that good. I don't personally don't care for them, most of the hardcore end up getting Pintech TCs to replace or augment the ION and they are …
  • I'll toss my complaint in as well. Part of the fun was tracking scores and progress. The function that 3rd party sites provided actually made it a part of the game itself, unfortunately. I don't why there was no forethought to provide comprehensive…
  • 48 - Gave up the guitar/bass due to repetitive strain injury. Yep, over did it.. Moved to drums last fall. Started out with G/H 3, which was a gift to the spouse. Moved to RB (renting it from the library), much better game. After giving up the…
  • For PS3 users: I looked at my display settings on the PS3 and noted that RGB Full Range (HDMI) was set to limited instead of full. The default setting was limited. I have a 40" Samsung LCD and this seemed to help, with the exception of loosing trac…

  • I just played a couple of songs for the 1st time. The 1st thing I noticed was that the highway sucks from a color perspective. The notes are hard to see at times and just blend in with the back ground. Reminds me of one reason why I switched to …
  • This is the only cross platform, fully compatible throne. The others are third party rip offs. http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3057/2586829805_b8b2f1d5b3.jpg

  • I started playing drums in November 2008, after giving up the guitar. My experience as I never played drums, that the RB1 and RB2 pedals are basically no different and were definitely a stumbling block from any advancement. Those pedals from my perc…
  • Hey, this is probably the wrong thread but if you do a search on "yamaha" I found plenty of threads on the subject. Most of the posts are in the Rock Band thread, and the Game Tech support thread.

  • Cool, a Barfarama thread...... Accidentally taking a swig from the wrong soda can that was filled with cigarette butts. Close call - watching a $10 bet that involves a 3 lbs coffee can and tobacco spit.
