Re: Passing On Experience

We'll often hear that "it's not the drumset that matters, it's the drummer playing it".

In every drummers life there will likely be numerous drumkits that come and go, but there will only be one...

Re: Get better Andy!

I love you, Doc.

I guess I just have a thing for edgy provocateurs in online drum forums.

Actually, I probably have a secret crush on a fair number of people here. All this talk of mounting...

Re: Dying Live Scenes, tale of two gigs

Portnoy can probably afford to endulge in small scale performances which might just be more enjoyable for him, the band, and all those attending.

I saw the Stones when I was 14 in a massive...

Re: Get better Andy!

Man, Im sure glad that I only just saw this thread, got the bad news and good news almost at the same time.

Re: Snare wire preferences?

I had some N&C snare wires on a Ludwig 402 Supraphonic many years ago.

Remember them as being a very good upgrade to the Ludwig wires that are themselves considered decent.

The snare sounded...

Re: The one piece of gear you'll take to the grave

I rather hope it's the other way round for me.

I'd like to think that if there's an afterlife, a "paradise" I you so will, then it's there that I'll finally be free to experience drumming...

Re: Premier Cabria Opinions

My recollection of Cabrias is that the quality of the shells decreased with every subsequent "update" to the series.

When the Cabrias were launched the shells were really good and the series was...

Why would you need to take a trhone with you if you'd be lying down for the rest of eternity?

There are no pinched nerves in paradise, apparently...

My Black Russian Codpiece.

For those not of royal lineage, here's a brief example of one in use:

Re: Weird perceptions

But what if you end up loving both sets of hats at the same time, and also hating both sets at the same time as well?

Better get yourself a few dozen pairs, then you'll always be sure to have the...

Re: A shame, but long rumoured :(

Not sure how to read this comment. Irony?

To quote with some slight modification:

One of the Premier drum manufacturers... some pretty bad management...

history repeating itself. Alas

Re: Do you keep your cardboard boxes?

Cardboard boxes: great for building forts and castles on the lawn in the summer! For the kids of course, not for me, honestly... :-)

Re: Seller's remorse

I think the old saying is more than applicable here:

"The grass is always greener on the other side."

Sounds like not only are you less than sure that the grass is in fact greener, but you're...

Re: Does anyone actually do gigs with large bass drums any more?

Yep, seemed like a good idea when I got one. So easy to move the bassdrum around but that benefit is quickly negated by the need to use a raiser in order for the beater to strike the head closer to...

Calm down Matador. There are no bulls to wrestle here, just a relaxed, friendly music forum.

Your point would be better made without the grandstanding and competitive challenges to other members....

Re: Seller's remorse

Thanks for the photo, Prydon.

Very nice kit. Timeless finish, classic "P" badge, classic one-piece Premier lugs. And of course, those Resonator shells. A piece of drum history.

I think you may...

Re: Does anyone actually do gigs with large bass drums any more?

To be honest, I'd be surprised if any new and aspiring drummer thinks at all about the issue of hauling gear. I cetainly didn't. I was just completely enamoured with drums and their sound, that's the...

Everyone needs their own space. That's what I was trying to write when I referred to a person's individuality, even a child has that.

Re: My Ludwig Classic Maple Set Has Arrived

Wow, that kit is absolutely gorgeous!

At the risk of sounding both sleazy and weird...I think I just got a hard on!

I would be more than happy to have that as my final and only kit for the rest...

Re: Seller's remorse

I second the idea of just buying perhaps a new snare, a cymbal, or maybe just some accessories. It's amazing what only one or two new items can bring to an older kit. A new snare takes up much less...

Re: Love this Blue Gretsch Catalina

The finish looks classy enough but how much is that due to the lighting in the video?

I like my chocolate-white Catalina finish very much. Sort of cream-pearl, but wihout the pearl.

Re: Nicko McBrains Drum shop

Good luck to him, he'll need it. Too many music shops gone under in the last few years. Johnny Roadhouse's drum section a pale shadow of it's former glory (if it exists at all).

I hope Nicko...
