Re: Pearl Sensitone Snare (14x6.5)

The 5" version does have another look to it: http://www.thomann.de/gb/pearl_14x5_sensitone_premium_brass.htm
I like that better, also in brass.

And the ARL lugs do have a design philosophy:...

OK, jumping in my car right now :-)

Re: What's on your bass drum reso head?

With my previous band it was just the band name - the more publicity, the better - now it's the brand name.
A chrome finish head never came to my mind but must look great.

@GetAgrippa: that's...

Re: Pearl Sensitone Snare (14x6.5)

I agree. Those new lugs are distinctive - I guess it's a matter of taste if you like them or not - but apart from that I don't think there are major improvements over the previous line, which was...

Re: Cheap recording/editing program?

Hi fellow leftie(117), what do you want to achieve?
Just a (stereo) recording of the band or individual tracks which you can mix afterward?
Audacity will do the first but you'll need a DAW for the...

Re: A little thunderstorm - Tour zebrano video

OK, I have to say it in this thread as well: those drums sound really, really great Andy! Excellent balance of attack, tone, body and projection, as far as I can tell from the recording. Superb!

Re: 22" x 12" bass drum - 2015 Origin photo's / spec's

Beautiful work Andy - as always I might add.

I had in mind of visiting the UK again (it's not that far and I've only been to London), must certainly plan a visit to you as well.

Re: Adults Learning Drums

Maybe another discussion but I once heard part of a conversation between 2 men, around 45 or so. The one was just learning to play drums, the other asked whatever strange delusion would make a...

Re: How many times have you been asked...

A strong but nice metaphor!

I had the question asked a couple of times, the guitar and bass player also. We all said no. Maybe I'm overprotective of my gear but that's my choice, not another...

Re: Drums as an investment?

Hi Andy, I kind of expected your input on the matter ;-)


Hey, I triggered a nice discussion, right? ;-)

On a serious note: some guitars, paintings, stamps or whatever can cost serious money...

Drums as an investment?

I was wondering: would it be worth spending money on drums to make some money in the future?
Interest on savings accounts is low - at least over here, a few months and we probably have to pay...

Re: The Ludwig Acrolite

I picked up an Acrolite 14 x 6.5 Black Galaxy today for 200 (that would equal to around $200).
It was in good condition. It had an Emperor on top and (probably) the factory Ludwig snare head and...

Re: Another "first audition" thread

Dignan, thanks. I'll just have fun and enjoy playing.

I played a lot of classic rock songs with my previous band as well. A lot of the basic grooves can be pretty similar, the variety lies in the...

Re: Another "first audition" thread

Great it went pretty well, I hope you'll get to join the band!
Playing with other musicians and also preparing for gigs will make you develop more and faster than just playing on your own.

Re: Practicing on an electric kit....

I guess that would be because, usually, both the pads and rack are smaller so everything has to be closer together - although that doesn't apply to middle to top-of-the-line or custom built...

Re: How do you guys practice?

Hey, thanks for posting this!

I'm on Spotify but somehow never thought of checking out drumless tracks over there.

Hey Andy,

Great pictures, it seems great drums bring big smiles to everyone :-)

It looks like my bubinga snare but...

Re: Can memory locks be sexy?

Hi Andy,

The bass drum spurs look great, another detail which has been giving serious thought. And (R&D) costs.
I figure the memory locks would be aimed primarily at having the same angle to the...
