Re: Removing metal washers from tension rods

You might be able to heat them up with a pen torch enough to expand and come off. Cutting them may be quicker but more work.

Re: College- What do i do!! :(

Totally agreed. I cant even begin to tell how much time I spend on homework. Between papers, research, reading, studying for tests, and designing stuff for my REVIT class, I feel like sometimes I am...

Re: Ripped Bass Drum Head

It isn't uncommon, when playing metal, to rip an unprotected kick drum head. The head gets much more abuse than just about any other genre of music, plus it is doing double duty (pun NOT intended)...

Re: Hiromi trio gig report. Simon Phillips, Anthony Jackson

Sounds like it was an excellent time. I have only seen videos on YouTube, but it sounds like what I have watched is just not comparable to being there in person. Unfortunately cool stuff like this...

Re: College- What do i do!! :(

I agree it is definitely better to try to pay as you go with school. I didn't have that option, so I bit the bullet. Fortunately my loans aren't nearly as high as what his would be, and the field I...

Re: Vintage Ludwig & Ludwig drums

The 1939 catalogue clearly shows toms with tunable reso heads, while everything before shows riveted reso heads or no toms at all.

Re: College- What do i do!! :(

I understand that people can stay out of debt if they do it right. However, debt was brought up as a concern in the OPs decision. This is why I addressed it. As a student myself, I know that student...

Re: Drums in checked baggage?

We don't all think it is a terrible idea. Vintage Old School gave some great advice about how to go about making sure you can do it. Furthermore, if you ship it FedEx or UPS, it will be going on a...

Re: College- What do i do!! :(

Okay, perhaps credit card = potential debt. Some are not as responsible as others with a line of credit. I don't have any personally.

Re: College- What do i do!! :(

If it is your dream then do it. If you don't, you will be kicking yourself for the rest of your life. What is more important to you, realizing your dream or staying out of debt?

You will almost...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Drum wise, a PDP throne to replace my ancient Rogers Swiv-o-matic. Its a wobble-matic at this point.

Non gear wise, a Kingsford 820 square inch barrel grill for the wife. It has a 24 burger...

Re: Types of Snare Drum

Dammit, now we have to start all over!

Why would one want a piccolo that thick? Might as well make a snare out of a steering wheel.

Re: Don't let "the man" bring you down!

I played a show once where the "promoter" decided that he wanted to pay us in LSD instead of cash. That did not go over very well. We ended up getting our money, but it was a huge hassle that there...

Re: Drums in checked baggage?

I did the same thing when I was a teenager. Drums, hardware, cymbals, all in one box. It did not make it on the initial flight because of the weight (it was a little puddle jumper initial flight. The...

Re: Types of Snare Drum

Between shell material, drum diameter, and drum depth, there is pretty much an infinite amount of choices of snare. And lets not forget shell construction either.

Re: Filling in badge holes on lacquered drums

The only things I have bought that did not come with it was the double pedal, the PDP throne, and a PDP stand. All together I am in it for about $300.

Craigslist can be your best friend in looking for used gear.

Re: Filling in badge holes on lacquered drums

Okay, black Allen screws are a much better idea visually than chrome. I still say leave them alone.

I do most of that stuff you listed too, just differently. I have a ~40 year old Pearl kit wit a...

Re: Filling in badge holes on lacquered drums

The screw wont effect the finish with a badge on there because the badge is touching the finish, not the screw head. An over tightened screw will compress the finish (or the wood for that matter),...

Re: Pearl masters birch vs Crush ash/birch question

Sound is subjective to the listener. That is like me guaranteeing that my wife is prettier than yours.

Re: Filling in badge holes on lacquered drums

Nuts and bolts, really? Sure it fills a hole, but how many of you would do that to your own drums? So it would then go from a barely noticeable hole to something shiny and obviously visible. Not to...

Re: Staining drum heads with coffee

If they have "hair" glued to them, he could probably use hair dye. Women's hair dye comes in every shade under the sun. Surely he can find a suitable brown.
