Re: Who's drum sound are you going after?

Good call Matt. I guess Ringo just loved that snare. I believe he used a 14 x 5.5 Jazz Festival snare. Kinda a weird size, but oh... the tone.

Re: Who's drum sound are you going after?

Ringo's snare on Ob-La-Di, Ob-La, Da. Such a clear absolute "snare" sound. The snare I judge all others against.
Ringo's entire kit on the Let it Be album. Is it his tunings or George Martin's?? ...

Re: Best websites to buy drums, cymbals, etc...

Has anyone noticed that regardless of the on-line store, gear is all priced exactly the same? Well I certainly have. There appears to be no price competition at all.

Re: How Long You Practice + More...

I don't really practice anymore. I usually just put on a CD and play along to the whole thing on my Roland E-Kit. The headphones makes it easy on the rest of the house.
I started playing when I...

Re: Drummers not respecting anothers gear/set up?

I gotta 'thing' about my drums. It's pretty personal as we've been through a lot together. I'm not crazy about anyone sitting behind my kit. OCD? Maybe, but that's the way it is.
I'm most...

Re: Strange Drum Habits

Re: Single Pedalers:

Well, not everybody uses one.
I've tried double bass and it just didn't work or appeal to me.

Re: A Tale of 2 Speed Kings (lots of pics!)

A Tale of 2 Speed Kings (lots of pics!)

Both of these Speed Kings stopped running smoothly years ago. I bought one of them new in 1973. I really don't even remember where I got the other one, but it's older. I can't tell them apart any...
