Re: Help a Dad out buying used set for son.

Reading through this thread, I hope my daughter takes up the drums. It would be so much fun to teach her the ins and outs of gear hunting and assemble a kit for her as she grew up.

Re: DW Snare Drums?

I am one of those players. I have a lot of very nice gear, most of it vintage and I'm not ashamed of my cheapness. The hunt for deals on used gear is my hobby. I like scouring pawn shops and used...

Re: Homemade cymbal mount when cruising the pawn shops...

Brilliant!!

Going to make myself one next time I'm at the Ace hardware. What size of eye-bolt did you get?

I love pawn shops, most of the nicer gear I have was scored from a pawnshop around...

Re: I hate that Song!!

I have still not learned "Immigrant Song" correctly. I can hack my way through it with doubles but I'm not playing it right.

Re: Dixieland

Never played Dixieland Jazz (or Trad jazz) but I was heavily influenced by it when I started playing. Started a 3 piece band with piano, drums and horns, ended up being more of a Cabaret-Punk thing...

Re: Current drum trends you wish would go away

I think people just thought they looked cool. Personally I hated them but I'm kind of a grumpy old man when it comes to new drum trends, don't let those 16" hats fool you.

I thought I remembered...

Re: I need your advice please

I recently drilled an 80's Ludwig rack tom for leg brackets. I just mocked it up to where middle point of the mount was on the end of the lug, that would be the end of the lug that pointed inward...

Re: Bo's last name

When I first joined, I just thought it was "Elder" and my mind would just see that every time he posted his new kit in the wrong section.

I'm embarrassed to say I just recently noticed its Eder....

The natural sound of the kit and the room (plus the cymbals) is the overhead's mic's job isn't it? Or are they more to...

Re: Cut the cable?

I haven't had cable for the past 7 years or so since my wife and I moved in together. Between Youtube and Netflix we're plenty entertained. I need to set up a practice pad and music stand by the...

Re: What is the slowest BPM song you enjoy playing

I used to like playing Amazing Grace when I had the church gig. We played it at about 60 BPM. It takes confidence to come in with a steady beat on a slow ballad, the first few times it was very nerve...

Re: The 8 lug snare drum

I was tuning the Dunnett the other day and wondering about the hardware. He went with this thin shell and less lugs, presumably with the purpose of a more open sounding drum then clamps these heavy...

Re: Any thoughts about the new PDP Kit? (Sporting the newer PDP Logo)

I like all the changes they have made. Like the lugs, the badges, logo and love that color.

PDP are by no means bad drums. They're solid entry/mid level kits but I have always regarded them a...

Re: The 8 lug snare drum

I'm married to a trumpet player, come to think of it I think you have met my wife at that biker bar jam, and there a still a lot of nuances to their tone. Granted, they're not as gear obsessed as we...

Re: The 8 lug snare drum

I have been really feeling the 8-lug-love lately. I have a Tempus and a 6.5" stainless steel Dunnett that are both 8 lug. It's probably the construction and design as well but I love how big and open...

Re: To drill or not to drill?

I had to look up a picture as I'm a little uninformed on Gretsch.

I would go with a hoop mounded pair of gullwing spurs. DW makes a very unobtrusive mount that I just love. I put them on my 28"...

Re: Almonds Good for your Health?

Reminds me of that banned user from Tucson that used to get all up in arms whenever someone said anything bad about DW. I get liking you favorite brand but he took it a bit far.

Re: Namm 2019 rumors

I have seen a prototype Rogers kit at the Big Bang booth on videos. I'm wondering if they have any sort of MSRP or guess at a street price on them yet.

Re: Anyone ever regret wrapping a drum set?

Wallopus could do a custom thing for you at no extra charge. Only trouble is that he can't do really deep sparkles like a vintage drum.
