Re: I Need to Get Re-Motivted

Looking at snare drums I cant afford does not inspire me,Watching youtube vids of some of the top drummers always inspires me, after 2 or 3 vids I usually end up with sticks in hand behind set.

Re: Drums and beer at my first ever band tryout!

Don't drink and drum/drive is a good suggestion. I fell off my stool when I was 17 playing a kegger gig and have not drank during a gig since. I'm 52 now.

Re: Q Drums Vs. DW

If $$$ was not a concern my dream set would be SQ2's. Someone mentioned the Q set would have no resale value like other custom drums, I don't believe this to be true at all, Q seems to have put...

Re: Many cymbals yes, but many snares?

My wife questioned me about my snare obsession and I compared it to her shoe obsession.. its very similar. She has about 50 pair.. I constantly rotate keeping about 4-6 snares and 6-10 cymbals at all...

Re: WOODEN HOOPS

For the best of both worlds I believe Gibraltar makes a combo metal/wood hoop. That may be an option, though the cost is a little more.. Paying "$60 for something to sit between your legs" I've paid...

Re: Double Snare Day

When I checked mine I didn't take the bottom head off so didn't see them. I do get more buzz then on any of my other snares but I really love the sound of the drum. It is amazing for the price.

I love eBay craigslist and guitar center for used gear, and I'm always buying cymbals and snare drums. The only thing I prefer new is bass drum pedals, I have always had bad luck buying them used. I...

Re: Any Smokin Deals Out There Right Now???

Re: A Badge Stix Would be Proud Of

Looks like the sign at hotel in Wildwood I have stayed at (or almost any in Wildwood). Anyone from Philly/NJ/NY will know what I mean. I think it is called the StarLux. The whole town is 50's doo-wop.

Re: Is this a vintage 6.5" X 14" Ludwig Acrolite?

Looks like the edges and inside still has chrome so I believe everyone thinking this was a LM402 with exterior chrome stripped is correct
