Re: would you buy a ludwig accent drum set...

I think that you should wait until you have more to spend and buy something better.
You are looking at price point kits that you won't want to keep in the near future.
You already have a good kit,...

Re: Playing with a click track

I also find it useful. I use it mostly for recording and practice. I don't use it for live small venue performance very often. I do use the click frequently for a gig at a big event. I encourage...

Re: help me decide on vintage drums?

Really nice, is that a 70's kit? The tom hardware is what I am going by to decree that.

Re: would you buy a ludwig accent drum set...

You won't have any trouble getting a good sound from that kit. The sizes are good too. I wouldn't spend anything on refinishing. I would only invest in heads.
If you have a use for the kit and you...

Re: That moment....

I have played at several large fairs and I find that the larger the audience, the less nerves I feel when I am on stage. I think that I tend to distance myself from large groups of people. I am much...

Re: Favourite hoops and why?

I like the vintage Slingerland Stick Saver hoops the best. They produce great rim shots.

My second choice is the Gretsch 302 hoops. They are the second generation of the Stick Chopper hoops but...

Re: Help with bearing edge damage?

That damage is minor. The dings can filled with a little wood filler and carefully sanded smooth with a fine sanding sponge.
That drum will be as good as new.
Don't leave the rough edges because...

Re: Are my hoops at fault?

I repeat, splay didn't cause the issue with your drum.
Over torquing the tension rods caused the issue.
1) Rogers drums never had gaskets.
2) If you look at the resonant hoop there is no splay....

Re: Are my hoops at fault?

hippy chip was talking about the splay of the tension rods.
That isn't what caused the failure on your drum.
I have owned drums that had more splay than your drum.
Some Ludwig snare drums are...

Re: Jazz

Its a great style of music to listen to and play. So why not listen to it, and play it?
It is my favorite music. I especially like most of the standards from The Real Books 1 and 2.

Re: Are my hoops at fault?

My suggestion for you is to get a Drum Dial and not tension your snare drum batter heads past number 90 on the gauge.
That is close to the maximum tension that these drums and heads are designed to...

Re: Favorite throw off and why?

I like the Zoomatic on my 65 Slingerland Artist model snare.
It is just so cool looking and functional. The adjustment knob allows for fast fine adjustment. The lever is always smooth and positive....

Nice score. Are those double nylon washers on the tension rods of the batter hoop?

Re: Am I the ONLY guy that likes the sound of poplar drums?

I have owned several poplar kits that I liked. I have also owned, "Mystery Wood"
kits that sounded great.

Re: Are my hoops at fault?

The truth is that everything has its bending or breaking point.
You may want to try a marching snare drum with marching drumheads.
They are designed for super high tension.

Re: Are my hoops at fault?

If you are using a single ply snare batter you shouldn't have to go more than two turns from finger tight. A double ply head will be about one and a half turns from finger tight.

Re: Are my hoops at fault?

When you first opened the package that these used hoops came in did you lay them on a flat surface and examine them for flatness?
By the way they can be made flat again by blacksmithing them with a...

The truth is that most musical instruments are kept by the original owners as they add more musical instruments to their collection.
These kept instruments tend to wind up in storage around the...

Re: Are 20" Bass Drums Easier To Play On Than 22"

A 20" BD is inherently slightly higher in pitch than a 22".
As long as you have no problem with the fact that different diameter drums make different sounds then all is right with the world.

As...

Re: help me decide on vintage drums?

As someone who owns several vintage kits from the 50's and 60's I can honestly say that I play vintage drums because I like both the nostalgia and the sound.
That being said, there are things that I...

Re: 12x8 or 13x9 for single rack tom??

I have numerous kits with different size high toms and floor toms. I like them all.
I use 10", 12", and 13" high toms.
I can't say that I have a favorite.
It took me a long time to understand...

Re: Camco LA era kit

Those tom mounts are not the greatest. They have been known to crack at the bend in the angle bracket that bolts the rail to the drum shell. The tom tends to sway when the drums are played. That...

Re: Drum spacing issues.

Here are a few pics of my, "Two On The Left" vintage Ludwig setup with 12" and 13" toms.
The 13" tom is over the BD just left of center and the ride cymbal is right next to it. As you can see I also...
