Re: Playing triangle in pit band

I know the Cajun triangle that I play is a somewhat different beast than the orchestral triangle... but going with double-strap support was a huge improvement to keep it from spinning or swinging.

Re: How many records have you made?

Records as in vinyl ? A 7" 45rpm single, and also one track on an Albany NY band compilation LP. That was mid-80's, I was bass player for Chefs of the Future.

Re: A&F Drums @ NAMM - uh oh ?

Re: A&F Drums @ NAMM - uh oh ?

The company is known for producing large "gong drums", isn't it ?

Re: Last time you referred to drumming as "playing the skins"?

Playing the tubs, playing the traps, hitting the skins, ... playing your "axe" ( whether it be a guitar or a horn) ..... I suspect it stems from the Jazz Age, when musicians and music fans were...
