    Bearing Edge Dressing

    Hey guys, it's been many months since I've posted on here, I know. I ran across this today while thinking about getting a Breakbeats kit, and thought I'd share it. Perhaps it's already been posted (I searched and found nothing), but I figured it would be a great resource for my friends over here...

    Istanbul Agop 13" Special Edition Jazz Hi-hats? I can't find one anywhere, it's really bothering me! I'm getting back a set of Paiste 13" Traditional Medium Thins that I lent out years ago, and depending on how I like them, I might want to sell them and get the Agops. I love the size, and since...

    How do you practice this style... ?uestlove

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1H54p11ywUU As a reference... how do you practice playing in such a broken style, other than with a metronome or with music? He's been my drummer crush for months now, and all I've been able to learn is how to play different swung feels that sound slightly off...

    Funny ways to count off songs...

    I've overused Bernard Purdie's "One, a two, a you know what to do," and a trumpet player's "One, two, buckle my shoe," and I need some new ideas. I figured this would be a great place to go...

    Ludwig New Supra-Lite Snare Drums

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fek-Ouy30Io Looks like we've got some new snares coming in later this year. Video says: steel shells, brass tube lugs, coming probably the 4th quarter of this year. 4" x 14" 5" x 14" 5" x 15" I hope Supra-Lite is how it'll be spelled. Supralite (probably correct)...

    Zoom Q3HD

    Just got a Zoom Q3HD, I'm very impressed so far. I've been moving around lots of stuff lately, so I don't really have a kit set up right now, but I did take a video right after I got it, and a few minutes of a gig I played. To those of y'all who have one of these cameras, what gain setting do...

    Used 22" Meinl Byzance China

    Just got a used 22" Meinl Byzance Traditional China for what I think was a good price. From sound files I've heard, this is one of the coolest chinas you can get. It's warm, and with a side stroke mounted bell up, it has a soft buttery sound. The Bosphorus Hammer is great, along with the Paiste...

    Restoring Some Vintage Drums

    No pictures today, because I don't have time, but recently a friend of mine's dad let me have some of his old drum gear to clean up to use for gigs and such. I got what appears to be a mid 60's Rogers set in a silver sparkle, with a 20" bass, 12" rack, and 16" floor. There's a Ludwig...

    Rogers Piccolo 13" Snare

    Found a Rogers Piccolo 13" x 3.5" 10-lug COB for sale locally. Anybody know anything about these snares? Looking to add something funky to my collection, before I finally start wasting money building stave snares :).
