Turn it around backward and beat on the back
HaHa - that might take some explaining. I have tried hitting it and it sounds bad. getting into playing the thing now, its fun to shred.Split the neck into sticks and tape a head over the sound hole?
I hate to resurrect an old thread such as this, especially in the middle of January, but I got my first chance to try out my new cymbal and snare at a gig and, well, it wasn't what I thought it was going to be.No one buys me drum items for any occasion. I'm just too darn picky.
Some time ago I bought a 16" Dream Bliss crash from a member of another web site. I know, buying Dream cymbals unheard is not a good idea. Too much difference in them. I tried to like it but it's just too brittle a sound for my taste. If anyone wants it, it's for sale. The fellow was late in getting me the cymbal so he sent me a gift for my trouble. It was a 13 x 6-1/2 drum case. I don't own a 13" drum so a lot of good that did.
Well, my children live in a town with a five star drum shop and we visited them over Christmas. I knew I was going to spend an extra day there so, I took my cymbal bag (and some saved up money) to see if I could find one. I did. It is a 16" Dream Contact that sounds great with my other cymbals. It was just what I was looking for and at a very reasonable price. Can't wait to use it at a gig.
Well, (do you know how dangerous it can be to be in a five star drum shop with excess money?) I happened to mention to the proprietor the story of the Dream Bliss I didn't particularly care for and the free drum bag. He said "Yeah, that will do you a lot of good". Of course, at the time we were standing next to his display of snare drums. I asked "Do you have any 13" snares that are in my price range?" Well, he made me a heck of a deal. And it is a 13 x 6-1/2.

Pics aren't great because it is in my crowded studio at night, It's actually a darker color that this. It sounds great with a little tune up and, again, I can't wait for my first gig.
