Re: Anger, dismay and confusion

Re: Which wrap for my new Ludwig Classic Maple?

Love your tale O' the silver sparkle. That had me feeling like I was a cover character for Tom Waits "The Ghost of Saturday Night." Dig it.

Re: Which wrap for my new Ludwig Classic Maple?

Great choice Drumjack! I have seen OGG in person and can vouch that is a beautiful finish. Keep us updated.

Re: Where Do You Fit? - Poll

I guess that I am 2.5. Our noisy band makes money, but we would starve if that was HOW I made money.

Re: Ain't no more fun...

@ Les Ismore LOL...

Sounds like one hell of a gated community. But the gates are made to keep people in.

Re: Irony?

I would say a lot of this artists series gear comes down more on the side of marketing demographics.

For instance, go back to the early 1990s. Tama seemed to want to associate itself firmly with...

Re: Louder with or without port?

I might offer a couple suggestions to increase volume. Try different head and muffling combinations. I hear a lot of people try to tune and muffle the kit so that it sounds good when no one else is...

Re: Musically, what are you involved with at the present?

One for now. Infinite Flux.

2. What kind of music does each band play? Instrumentation?

We play both kinds, Stoner and Doom. But I like to just think of it as...

Re: Not doing a gig because of the venue

There are definitely places I don't like to play. So, if given the offer to play said venue, I might pass. Our band has a TON of gear. Guitarist has three heads and four cabs of various dimension,...

Re: Tell me if this is a stupid idea

Well Larry, nobody's charging you for the threads, so ask away. LOL. You could always go low tech and do something like Mr. John Henry Bonham used to do and place the heads of the sticks between...

Re: Tell me if this is a stupid idea

LOL. I use the same sticks. I don't drop sticks very often, but when I do, I go big. I might practice dropping sticks to get better at a smooth recovery. I played an outside show last Saturday...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Cool. Those Tamas have a classy, classic look about them. Better to like the bass sound right off so you don't have to mess with the more expensive heads to get the sound you are looking for. I am...

Re: Professional responsibility

Aldo, not all people get the new world of the interwebs. This could be people that are just aloof, or Luddite hold outs. For instance, the only reason I finally caved in and got a myface account on...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Nice cases man! So now that you have had a chance to use them a bit, what do you think? What do you think of the Large hardware case?

If I ever had to get something more substantial than my...

I wonder about what it would tale to make a storage container soundproof. There are a ton of cool modular/modified storage containers that people turn into homes. What if you connected two side by...

Re: How do you save up for gear purchases?

Re: Drum Kit Suggestion

You either need another bass drum, or at least a double pedal. There's just not enough double bass patterns in Jazz these days. That will get people's attention. If I went into a jazz club, and...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Congrats, and good luck with that big hardware case. When my medium SKB hardware case is full, it is almost too much for me to horse into a vehicle, and usually smarter as a two-man lift. I can't...

Re: Trusting others with your kit?

Even better! Although not a sworn officer, I work in law enforcement. It can be sad, but nice to know when someone is lying to you. It just hurts a bit more if you know the person. It's not as if...

Wow! That's horrible. I would have made a total scene. I might have had an officer there too! I might have waited till they started a song then, politely, and forcefully liberated the snare from...
