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 :-)

Seriously, let's see if 2015 has a trip to the UK in store.

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...

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

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...
