Re: Hi-Hats: Tight or loose????

Gibraltar quick release clutch- no screw to loosen! See above, clearly great minds think alike. I now have 2, one for my gigging kit and one in my stick bag fro rehearsal room kits.

Re: Premier kit 1970's ?

My guess would be an Elite from the late 70's or early '80's. Birch with beech re-rings and in a 22-13-14-16 configuration. Looks like polychromatic gold with added pinstriping on the shell (probably...

Re: Two floor toms....

I have 3 floor toms, a 14/16/18 combo. The 16 came with the rest of the kit and I added the 14 and 18 later when the finish was discontinued. I've only used 2 floor toms occasionally and never all 3,...

Re: What's your story about how you started drumming?

I, like many was a singer early on. I sang solo as a boy soprano and I guess that's where my love of music, and of performing came from. My first awareness of being aware of drums as an instrument...

Re: To sell or keep my old Stage Customs: A dilemma

I think it's as simple as you just don't like them any more. If you don't like the sound, you aren't going to play them, so they might as well be released into the wild. Is there a sound you couldn't...

Re: The Bo Eder Pearl Vision Signature kit ;)

My daughters little kit is all orphans. the difference is that they are all black, and the 12,13 and the 16 toms (the 16 is the bass drum in her set) are all Premiers from the 70's and 80's and this...

Madge, I get where you're coming from. I recently left a band I had been in for 10 years and a mate and I started another. It all went very slowly at first. I had been playing the same stuff for...

Re: If you could build you DREAM KIT, what would it be/include? (Shells, cymbals, hardware, etc.)

I don't have a dream kit. I have all of the drums and cymbals that I will ever need ( although this probably won't stop me buying more to be fair). What I really want is a roadie to move my gear, set...

Re: The Bo Eder Pearl Vision Signature kit ;)

The mere fact that these drums may save your reference pure's from running around uncased in the back of the pick up is all I need to convince me that this kit. aesthetic isues aside, is well worth...

Re: What drum set is this?

It looks pretty generic to me. I'm guessing that if it is a Pearl, that the hardware will be marked somewhere. Have you tried taking a lug off and looking inside?

Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

Indeed, I can agree, but it annoys me in the same way as lip syncing does. If you know what you're looking at it's so obvious.

And as a movie it's simply average and rather unbelievable!

Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

I think he played for the filming- that's in all of the blurb about the film, but if he actually played any of it (the sound I mean), I'll eat my snare drum!
