Re: Tinnitus (ear ringing)

I too suffer from Tinnitus from years of loud music. I've been wearing ear protection within the last 6 or so years but the damage is done. I've lost a lot of the higher frequencies, especially in...

Re: Sonor-king of the micro kits?

While I don't personally own one, I routinely play a Sonor Jungle kit at a local open mic jam. The owner uses Evans G2 clears over G1 clears and it always sounds great playing it and out front as...

Re: New drum kit! Woohoo 28" Ludwig kick. Need some help...

I play a 14x28 and a 16x26 and I can say from my own experience that I get the best sound (to my ears) with a PS3 batter and a fiberskyn reso or a Ludwig heavy reso. Batter is tuned just a little...

Re: Applications for 13" tom

Get creative with the 13" tom. I put mine next to my floor toms. I tune them so they complement each other (typically a major third apart).

Re: 28" vs. 26" Kicks, Help!

I might of missed it, but you never mentioned whether or not you plan on porting the reso on your new kick. This obviously will have a huge effect on your tone as well. 16x28 is a LOT of air to...

Re: Favorite Song to Rock out To?

Pat Travers "Snorting Whiskey and drinking Cocaine". This song gets me fired up. Tommy at some of his best!

Re: What's the oldest drum gear you own?

I have a 1938 14x28 Ludwig & Ludwig bass drum followed closely by a 1941 Ludwig & Ludwig snare drum. Both are WMP.

Re: Tuning help for 18" floor tom...

I agree with Bull when he says that larger toms seem to sound better with the reso tighter than the batter. I have a Ludwig 6 ply kit that the floor tom sizes are 18 and 20! If the reso isn't tight...

Re: Vintage Ludwig & Ludwig drums

As promised, here are some pictures of the 1941 snare I picked up over the weekend to go with the bass drum. It's in excellent shape. Sorry for the less than quality pictures - I used my phone. Now...

Re: Vintage Ludwig & Ludwig drums

Here are some pictures of the bass drum. It's 14x28 and has long Imperial lugs. As far as completing the kit, I will pick up decent pieces as I come across them - as long as they're from the same...

Vintage Ludwig & Ludwig drums

I recently purchased a 1938 Ludwig & Ludwig kick drum, 14x28, totally virgin and has a beautifully yellowed WMP wrap that is very tight. For those of you who like pictures, I will post some once I...

Re: Do drummers lose points for disassembling the moment the show is done?

I too start to break down my gear right away after the last song. Why? I have the most components to break down out of anyone else in the band. It is a common courtesy if a band is following you (or...

Any tips on micing non-ported kick?

Just like the title says - I'm looking for input on how you might mic a non-ported kick. I've always had ported kicks until recently and I'm not too sure on what technique will yield satisfactory...

Re: # of gigs in 2013?

I had 96 paid gigs last year. We only take off two weekend nights per month plus the occasional event gig.

Re: The disconnect between musicians perspectives and audience perspective

I have two thoughts on this. First off, I am not a fan of other musicians coming up to sit in during one of my bands gigs. I could care less if they were the second coming of Bonzo. When I get...

Re: Bar bands, what's more important...

"A" all the way. I think both Shemp and Karl hit the nail on the head. Honestly, bar / club owners could care less what you look like or how you sound. If they have a great night at the bar...

Re: Sonor Force 3007/Select Force Kits

I use a Force 3007 kit as my main gigging kit and so far it's held up well. I will tell you my opinion of the good and bad based on my ongoing experiences with the drums. First, the good;
1.) Great...

Re: Chicks love cowbell

Don't forget the Red Hot Chili Pepper's "The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie". My band plays this song and it has cowbell in it. Great dance tune with or without the cowbell however...

Re: The Winery Dogs and Mike Portnoy

There's something I forgot to add to my "review". Mike performed a drum solo as did everyone else in the band. His solo was really short and consisted of a lot of linear chops, some triplet stuff...

Re: To chrome or not to chrome...

I agree with tamadrm - aluminum can be polished to almost a mirror shine. It is done in steps (using finer and finer media each time) and can be somewhat labor intensive, but IMO it would be worth...

Re: $1000.00 Acrolite?

I may be wrong, but I am very doubtful that Ludwig powder coated that acrolite that color. It's probably a case of where someone did that on their own.
