Re: I accept defeat.

Different strokes for different folks.

I love large drums tuned a bit tighter and leave my bass reso intact. That's me and I love the sound. I also play smaller rock and roll venues. Sometimes...

Re: My floor tom may be out of round.

So I just picked up my replacement 16" floor tom today. Fairly quick turnaround. However, this tom seems to have the same issue. WTH?

So I picked up the drum from the shop, dropped off my old...

Re: Ludwig Classic Maple or Vistalite?

Yup. Get the BIG ones. They are SO fun to play. Pay no attention to guy flailing around behind that beautiful Ludwig Classic Maple kit.

Re: Ludwig Classic Maple or Vistalite?

It seems you are comparing large oranges to small apples. : )

My vote is to get the big Bonham sized Ludwig Classic Maples, or maybe Bonham sized Vistas. I imagine that the fab22 kit is roughly...

Re: Funnest Gig you've ever played?

We played a couple polar extreme shows as far as temp goes. One was in an uninsulated smallish garage that hosted a lot of underground shows. It was a good bit below freezing. There was a tiny...

Re: My floor tom may be out of round.

Got word today that Ludwig will build a new one for me and allow me to hold on to the odd one till the new one shows up. It's funny, but I have not bought a new kit since 1991, but if and when I...

Re: My floor tom may be out of round.

Thanks for the information. When I first received the drum and noticed this issue, I thought that it must have been a slight issue with the head. It seemed that the stock Ludwig head came on and...

My floor tom may be out of round.

So almost a year ago I got a set of New Ludwig Classic Maple drums. When I got them, I swapped out all the heads. The bottom head for my floor tom came off easy enough, but when I put the Remo...

Re: Heavy music, where did the ride go?

It sort of depends. I think for certain sub-genres, many drummers have gone down a similar popular path of ultra staccato blasts, and abrupt time changes and whatnot. Everything has its place, but...

Ahhh... I knew I could depend on you guys. Thanks for some submissions. Stuck at a mall where books are a forgotten relic if a bygone era that has turned and left me standing here. This truly is a...

what are some great books about drummers you have read.

I am visiting family and about to head off to find something to keep me occupied.

When I searched, I got a lot of great recommendations about drum rudiments, patterns and whatnot, but little in...

Re: Got my 50th anniversary supra today!

Holy Cow! What a sharp looking drum man! That badge is super cool too. I think I like that over some of the other special Ludwig round/oval badges. Enjoy!

Re: Anyone else dislike suspension mounts?

For me, I suppose it comes down to one part aesthetics, and one part functionality. I am not fond of a bunch of optional extra metal hanging around my drums. Granted, I have about one suspension...

Re: What's On Your Shopping List?

I would really like some new DW 5002TD pedals. Keeping eye out for another core-Bonham kit for the house. Till then, I am saving my pennies.

Re: Gretsch Catalina Maple vs Ludwig Classic Maple

I can't speak for the Gretch, but I have a fairly new set of Ludwig Classic Maples and love them. No words will substitute for hearing them in the flesh, but the first time I put sticks to my new...

Re: Great car for a drummer

Glad you are OK man.

I also have a 1994 Toyota extended cab 4x4. I love that thing. Even as a young kid, I always loved the way Toyotas looked and performed. I need to get a new canopy on it...

Re: How long do I have to wait?

I waited just about six weeks exactly.

Re: When soundmen attack

Yeah Bull,

Our band plays similar situations and we have pretty much the same kit set up and tuning from what you describe. I play with an unported 26" bass drum. Half the time when we play...

Re: How sentimental are you about your drums?

Great posts guys.

OK, so here are the drums that I am most sentimental about. They are my ~1990 Tama Granstars. About 24 years old and they still sound great. I don't play a nine piece...

Re: Anyone suggest good drum bags?

I would speculate that the AAA bags are not available here in the states due to a cost vs. profit issue to get the large rigid bags over the big pond. A regular Protection Racket case folds and...
