Re: Best drum music notation software

I use Finale NotePad (http://www.finalemusic.com/products/finale-notepad/), which is free. Worth a try if MuseScore doesn't do it for you.

I've had no trouble entering rests.

THANK YOU! Also MileHighDrummer.

"Chops" is a much abused term around here.

However, we don't have to guess or make something up; Merriam-Webster defines chops as "skill or excellence in a...

Re: Ludwig P-85 rant

I have a Supraphonic with a P-85 that had the notorious jamming problem. The mechanism would stick when trying to engage the wires.

Tried all the usual suggestions, tore it down, carefully greased...

Re: Has this every happened to you?

Which leads to a conundrum: should I put a drum key on my keyring, so that I will always have one handy?

Or is there a risk that the drum key will pull the ring and all of my keys with it into the...

Re: Upgrade cymbals or drums first?

I'll toss in another suggestion to get the Rydeens in good tune and heads before you decide.

Re: Tough choice - vintage experts help, please!

Kinda depends. Do you already have a vintage kit? If not, it's the Ludwig by a landslide.

If you already have a vintage kit, maybe just the snare. For instance, I have a Slingerland Modern Solo...

Not who I meant by "some folks."

"when the company name changed back to "Ludwig," [Jazz Festival] was what [the Barrett Deems] was renamed." By the Ludwig company.

Re: What's the worst kit you've had to play on?

Re: A little S-Hoop History

Re: The worst drum /cymbal purchase you ever made
