Re: Silly branding things that shouldn't matter (but do!)

Except for the stamps on my 50's and 3-dots Zildjians... none. I leave any badges alone and the sticks have logo's but I do sand my sticks a bit when they get roughed up. The heads usually have a...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

I picked up an old 1000 count King size Egyptian cotton top sheet at the 2nd hand store for 5 bucks. Great drum drape to help keep the dust down.

I also hauled my old Teac receiver and JBL...

Re: Bid like a man!

I set a limit of what I think an item is actually worth and stick to it. Oddly enough some real deals passed me by for just a bit more than my limit. BUT keep a saved search on hand and sure enough...

Re: Cutting down snare wires

I read some where (I think on here) that one of the posters cuts off the 2 outside wires on their 20 strand snares. I didn't try it, mostly because I don't use 20 strands. But it sounded like an...

Re: How to improve your internal time - you ideas

Play some New Orleans shuffle along with Tuba Skinny or some other trad band on YT. It's a little sloppy and swings sweetly. Playing "sloppy" shuffle beats will help get you out of this period of...

Re: Matched Grip vs. Traditional Grip: Pro's and Con's?

Re: Bitter Ginger Baker slating Zeppelin and Bonham - again

Paint by numbers was better... and yes it was an over simplified description of what is normally referred to (on countless pedagogic vids, dvd's, interviews, and books) as "Riff Based Rock." I've...

Re: Bitter Ginger Baker slating Zeppelin and Bonham - again

If you would note that the OP's statement was that JP was heads and shoulders above EC. I dispute that. And of course he was a sought after session player along with JPJ (before LZ) and is highly...

Re: Bitter Ginger Baker slating Zeppelin and Bonham - again

Huh? Well.... maybe, sort of, but the crux of the LZ sound was LZ as a whole with a whole lotta' John Paul Jones and his technical savvy and multi-instrumentalism.

Re: Taking the wrap off

I 2nd that! The outer ply's can (and do) pull up or tear if there is resistance. Those ply's can peel right off like an onion and ruin the look of the bare shell.
