Re: Blues Drum Set

I play a kit in similar sizes, without the 12 and 16 inch toms and I play mostly blues.

Re: "Light and Shade" in your sound

First, I am beyond jealous. I played in a trio like that in high school and have wanted to put together another one ever since, with no luck.

Second, my interpretation of that would be that...

Re: Two Floor Toms

On the rare occasion I add a floor tom, I just twist, doesn't bother me.

That's a big ten-four.

Kid, these fellas know what they're talking about. You'd do well to listen.

Re: Who gets the stock snare with new kit and why!

I've never owned a kit with a stock snare. My first drum was an Acrolite and it's been the centerpiece of all my sets. None of the sets I bought were new, and none them even came with the option of...

Re: The Lug Thread

I really like tube lugs. I also enjoy small, round single-point lugs. I think DW lugs are hideous. The long lugs that span the whole length of the shell are growing on me.

Re: Help identifying Craigslist drum set.

I've got a set just like that. Bought them for under fifty bucks at an auction. I really enjoy them and used them as my primary set for years.

Re: Ludwig Acrolite 6.5x14

Yeah, if you don't like it, I'll give you more than you paid. See, now there's a money back guarantee on it. You can't go wrong. They're great drums, I've heard allot, played a few, and someday...

Re: Attention Fellow Addicts!

Two, but sorry, I got the good one.

Haha. Yeah, I will probably hold out. I might even pawn a kidney and get one of those Noble & Cooley Alloy Customs.

Re: Attention Fellow Addicts!

Yeah, that's the real sticking point in my mind. If the Supra was the 6.5" version, I would already have my feet kicked up beside it on my coffee table.

Yes, she is. If you check out the...

Attention Fellow Addicts!

I have a 14" x 5" Acrolite, B/O badge. Nothing wrong with it. However, there's a used Supra in the same size at the local musical instrument emporium ( AKA: Crackhouse) for $249.

This is where...

Re: Pro Kit vs. a mere "Gigging" Kit

All of my sets were cheap, so I don't particularly mind lugging them around. However, I'd much rather carry around the mutt set of orphan drums than either of the sets I payed for.

Re: Cymbals: Too Hard, Wrong Angle?

It might just be the camera angle, but it looked to me like you might have your cymbals cranked down a little too tight. Also, you seem to be very heavy handed on your hihats, ease up on the poor...

Re: My thought for today

Larry, I agree entirely. This is something a lot of folks miss. It's hard to play for the song, and not for yourself. The ego is a heckuva thing.

Re: Miles Davis?

I remember when I was a little kid I found a Miles Davis "Kind of Blue" cassette. I've been a huge fan ever since. That is what I think of when I think of jazz.

Re: Does anyone NOT like snare ring?

I like my ring, thanks. My favorite snare is a wiiiiiide open Acro.

If for some reason I need a drier sound I've got a piccolo, that is cranked up so tight I've choked most of the ring out of it....

You can't go wrong with an Acrolite. They'll do anything and sound great doing it.

Re: Shine copper snare drum

I don't know anything about that particular drum but I LOVE copper snares.

I use a coated diplomat on top with a clear stock head on the bottom of my off brand steel piccolo. I've got both heads cranked up very tight, with the snares fairly tight. It's got tons of pop...

Re: Please Identify this drum Please

Those lugs, tom mounts and bass drum spurs look exactly like the ones on my first set, a CB700. I'm actually looking at one of the drums from that set now and the hardware is an exact match.
