Yogi Horton

I tried searching for his name, but didn't find it anywhere on the forum, so I thought I'd share this. Yogi Horton was (in my opinion) a very underrated drummer who played with tons of big names in...

Re: Sorry I ever got rid of those.

The ironic thing is that I've had more fun playing on vintage, beat-up, or off-brand kits than I've had playing on expensive professional-grade ones. Right now I have 2 kits: A set of Ludwig Classic...

Re: THE CLASSIFIEDS - For Sale / Wanted

Re: Need advice please.

1. Yes, it should be, assuming that you remove all the hardware first.
2. Not one bit!
3. Enamel paint should be fine. Spray paint will give you the most even appearance; painting with a brush has...

Re: Acrolite

Ditto. Mine left the assembly line on July 8th, 1967. It just turned 44 years old this summer and still sounds superb! The newer model you're looking at probably has a somewhat heavier-gauge shell...

Re: What TAMA is this ? please

I could be wrong, but to me, it looks like this kit isn't really a Tama at all, but just a generic low-end Asian set with Tama logo stickers on the 12 and 14 inch rack toms (The larger rack tom looks...

Re: Yamaha Musashi - Unsung Hero

Me too! I wish I hadn't let mine go. Playing a 14 inch snare drum just hasn't been the same (even if it is a 1967 Acrolite). Fortunately, I managed to find a 13x5.5 Yamaha brass drum which I like...

Re: which Ludwig is this?

A friend of mine had an old Slingerland steel-shell snare drum with a shell that was out-of-round on top and bottom. It was difficult to fit the new heads on, but with careful tuning the drum...

Re: Stage presence in YOUR band(s)

I've noticed that a lot of musicians equate stage presence with physical movement and espouse the idea that the more a musician moves, the more presence he or she has. I think that's only partially...

Suspension mount vs. shell mount...shell mount wins!

I have a Yamaha Stage Custom birch set (10x8, 14x14, 20x17), and I love it. However, I noticed that when I mounted the rack tom to the bass drum using the standard tom holder, the tom sounded choked....

Re: Bass drum depth

Agreed! 14x22 is a perfect size for rock or jazz (Joe Morello used one with Dave Brubeck, after all). It's super-responsive in terms of sound and it's easy to carry; I can't imagine trying to haul a...

Re: A second snare

If your main snare is 14 inches in diameter, I'd recommend using a 12 inch for the secondary snare. You could use a 13, but in my experience I've had to fiddle about with the tuning quite a bit to...

Re: Questions on modifying a Yamaha Manu Katche Jr. Kit

Not necessarily. I've gotten good results using coated Emperors for a high "jazz-style" tuning on my 10 and 14 inch birch toms. Terreon Gully (Christian McBride, Stefon Harris) uses maple toms in...

Re: Brand New Orange County Snare, So much ring

Whenever I get a new pack of Moon Gel, I always cut one of the pieces in half with a box knife. In my experience, a half piece is just the right amount of muffling for snare drums and small toms. The...

Re: Rust on snare rim

Steel wool won't scratch the chrome if you use the right grade. Look for "0000" (quadruple zero) on the package. This is the finest, softest grade of steel wool available, and it takes off minor rust...

Re: Stupid noises while drumming!

I just picked up "Yesterdays", which features Keith Jarrett (piano), Jack DeJohnette (drums), and Gary Peacock (bass) live in Japan in 2001. It's a swingin' album, but Keith Jarrett makes certain...

Re: Wood Hoops

Wood hoops are more common on bass drums, but they sound great on snare drum and toms, too. I recently installed a wood batter hoop on my 14x5.5 Ludwig Acrolite, and I really like the sound. Even...

Re: Timbale Drums

Timbales usually have "clip" mounts, similar to the ones on old Ludwig concert (single-headed) toms. The metal clip on the drum slides over a flat prong of metal extending from the timbale stand....

Re: Anyone else ever experience a "white-out"?

I would say "Let's talk about leather!" but this is a family forum! (And for the record, yes, it does look just like a Telefunken U-47!)

I've experienced a similar trance-like state before, mostly...

Re: “seating” gone wrong & marking cymbal stands…

I have to agree; You can use this technique with an Ambassador batter head, but the snare-side head is so thin, it's not meant to withstand that much pressure applied over such a small area. You...

Re: Songs with "OVER the music" Solos

The latter half of "If 6 was 9" (from the album Axis: Bold as Love) is another good example of Mitch using this technique.
Billy Cobham also uses this approach on tunes like "The Pleasant Pheasant"...

Re: Pork Pie 7x13 little squealer maple snare drum?

Re: Ringo's Best drum sounds

I love the way his cymbals sound on the solo section and outro of "Come Together." Because of the tape compression, they sound like they're 8 feet wide. You can tell that even though he's getting a...
