Re: Blues jam session ... play simple - receive big applause

Re: Looking for new drums - vintage sound

I'm thinking of typical jazz setup:
- tom 10 or 12
- floor 14 or 16
- bass 18 or 20
no snare, no hardware.

Budget.... as always the lowest :)
I'm looking for a mid price set.

Re: My humble take on good drummers and OK drummers

Re: Better, the best sounding drums - what make them so unique ?

Thanks
I thought that are many factors .. but never so many.
As I wrote both drums were high end. Same new heads, all nearly the same.
I can imagine they could be different - but no so much.
