Re: Is made in the US really that much better?

Actually yes I did get the idea for this thread from your thread. However I never for 1 second thought you were chest beating. It just raised a question in my mind.

Tommy I have a lot of respect for you opinion. Can you comment on the tone difference of Chinese maple vs North American maple?

Re: Is made in the US really that much better?

The nostalgia thing you mentioned....Does it carry any value anymore?

Back in the day, like the 60's and prior, yea, overseas stuff was definitely not all that.

That's all changed now, yet...

Re: Is made in the US really that much better?

IMO it isn't rational at all.

But I think we are deluding ourselves about US made drums.

Unless someone can offer contrary evidence.

Is made in the US really that much better?

I don't get the attitude of made in US is better. As a person who resides in the US, I feel we are not nearly as hard working as an equivalent person in a different country. So why is it supposedly...

Re: 36" kick?

Someone's compensating!

I don't think I'll ever understand the thought process that makes people want to go so far over the top. I don't understand what they are trying to accomplish.

Re: Your weirdist gig?

Sorry, it was outdoors in a big secluded field with us and a few hundred bikers. It was night time when the M-80 went off. It was pretty close to the singer, they must have missed lol.

Actually we...

Re: Your weirdist gig?

In the 80's, I played a biker party put on by The Breed in the Jersey Pines. Wow. They were very organized. As soon as we got there, they handed us a bunch of crystal. One of the bikers yelled to a...

Re: Most Random bit of equipment that's failed at a gig

I had a ported BD reso head that split. A ported head. I still can't figure it out.

I had a snare cord fail. Every time I hit my snare, I made a buzzing sound with my mouth to compensate.

Not...

Re: Mother (nature) knows best :)

I can't speak intelligently about if and why the art of drum making is or is not dying. I'm just grieving the halt to Guru Drums.

I feel we're in a golden age of drum building actually. Quality...

Re: Changing gears with my Drum inventory

If you're the type of guy who can be completely satisfied with one finish, the shell bank gets my vote instead of multiple kits. Less heads. More space.

Re: My week in Nashville!

I'm betting that Bo, if he does move to Nashville, will return to CA. I just can't imagine him drinking whiskey and chewing tobacco, with a cowboy hat on.

Art I need your wacky graphic skills...

Re: Gear you could afford but never owned

I've never heard a Meinl that I wanted. Plus whoever it was that said that the Meinl logo looked like the back end of 2 elephants...I can't shake that.

I'm just glad it's on a cymbal line that I...

Re: Gear you could afford but never owned

I never bought anything I can hit with my hands with one exception. I just don't want to do that. I do own congas but don't play them. Except with sticks.

Blasphemy I know.

I'd get a steel...

You're gigging now?

Re: Why Modern Pop Music Is So Awful To Some!!!

Music is like food. You like what you were raised on. Like I'm not eating insects anytime soon. But others do. It's all OK. The world needs open minded people. But those that aren't...that's OK too....

OK fair enough. How about this wording: Gear you could afford. But never owned.

Re: Pain in wrist...is there anything wrong with my technique?

IMO, your fingers aren't acting as shock absorbers. You are holding the stick against your palm at the point of impact, transferring the shock. You should have a gap between the stick and your palm....

Re: My week in Nashville!

Moving is too much work. If I can't be happy where I am, it's not the location, it's me. That said a change of scene is refreshing. I'd just hate to see you make the move and 3 months later you...

Re: My week in Nashville!

I have to wonder how you much you will like it. Coming from California....tading that to live in Nashville is quite the culture difference. I'm wondering if you can hack the more mellow lifestyle.

Re: My week in Nashville!

A Dukes of Hazzard Museum. Why was I not informed of this?

A museum about a TV show. Yea that's the US.

Nashville and California might as well be different countries. And the food down South is...
