Please post questions in the proper Section from this point forward. Every member can't have their own Randon Question thread. Thanks
Ahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!! Took me a minute, didnt want to ask but was super curious! Nice pull Larry!Can I provide a random answer?
In case anyone was wondering, like me, what whale oil beef hooked meant...
Say it fast. It sounds like a familiar swear expression. With an Irish accent.
Why, on a 1 up 1 down kit, is the mounted tom always in front of the snare ... To my way of thinking the MT should be in front of the FT .... why can't it be on the left instead?
Well, we were like 15 in the early 70's. No jazz, but a lot of Black Sabbath and Led Zepplin.My guess is that the guy in your pic doesn't do a lot of jazz paying with comping on his rack tom.
Anyone can place anything in any place they want. There's no shortage of people doing hings different than the typical 5-piece in an ad setup.Why, on a 1 up 1 down kit, is the mounted tom always in front of the snare and not the FT? I mean, if it was 2 Up - that 2nd tom would be in that position anyway - so it must be just fine having a tom there.
To my way of thinking the MT should be in front of the FT, like the drummer in my garage band has it set up.
If ya'll say it's so the ride cymbal can be on the right, why can't it be on the left instead?
A lot of the woodworking I do shows lumber resawn to get the mirror image rather than use two different cuts of wood. They use a lot of live edge lumber and cut it vertically to keep the live edge on both sides with the grain match in the center.Personally I kind of like the mirror-image effect in the grain match up there.
Seems intentional to me. If it were me, I'd put a thin strip of black or chrome there to really enhance the effect.
I've seen "artisan" tables and wood furniture made with this theme as a main feature... I do see an appeal in the nature-assisted artistic expression kind of way.
