I just picked up a 1983 Tama SuperStar shell pack. 13, 16, 22x14 cherry finish. I'm pretty stoked because I've been looking for exactly these drums for some time now.

Re: Don't do that!

If you don't want this guys walking in on your jams you better figure out a way to end this relationship before he gets to familiar with your space.

Re: What are your stories of when people found out you are drummer?

I was talking to this guy (longtime drummer) and and his (30-something) daughter and when she realizes I'm also a drummer... she kind of stops, looks at me and says, with a good does of snark,

Re: Terry Bozzio: All Cymbals

Kinda cool.
I recently found myself trying to explain to a drummer friend, who thought/thinks his giant kit is pure show-off, that's he's just trying to push the limits of what you can do as a drum...

Drumming as sport? a new take on it

As I've mentioned in the past regarding this question it's all about the watts.

It's important to note the rider isn't in a race which usually lasts (at his level) 4 to 6 hours of intensity. And...

Re: Gretsch From the NAMM Show

Those solid shells are really nice, but that's a lot of money for a pre-distressed and inside-out drum...kinda gimicky

Re: Decal sticker removal from bass drum head??

Sounds like a big job. I use a hair dryer to remove stickers. You can soften the glue and peel back the sticker. This works great on most stickers. just don't heat it to much. However you have...

Re: Going with a 20 inch kick now

I really like my 20X17 Oak Custom kick. It's actually almost to loud for most of the playing I do. So I stick a small feather pillow in it to tame it. But the times I need the volume I just play it...

Re: Rock drummers are top athletes

If you look at how an athlete (baseball, soccer, swimming...) trains, they are building strength using, primarily, the bodies large muscle groups. Drumming uses small muscle groups for strength...

Re: Why do people treat their drums so badly?

I go to and get invited to jam sessions were they have drums set up and these drums are usually piles of crap. The owners of the drum aren't often drummers, but either way, they seem to proud of the...

Re: Our fixed qualities

Re: Paiste 2002, B8 but why do they sound so good?

I'm pretty sure it's the same B8 formula...that's what makes it a B8.

The reason for the difference in sound is because 2002's a are cast individually and to a very strict quality control. Were as...
