Re: Gergo Borlai

I think you spelled his name wrong on the video title there Ron. According to this baby naming website it is pronounced "GER-guu". The man is a beast and a half behind the kit, first time I saw him I...

Re: Warped die cast hoops

Yay! I love a story with a happy ending.

Now how about a pic of the kit with the straightened hoops on it?

Re: 2003 DW Collectors Series - Broken Glass finish

Looks like they're an optional feature on their drums.

Re: How sentimental are you about your drums?

I have quite a bit of gear, almost 3 full kits and about 5 or 6 snares. I could part with most of it as long as I had enough to still play my gigs. The one snare that I could never part with is a...

Re: Hollywood Drum Show 10/18

Is the show open to the public? I would love to attend next year, any excuse to slip out to CA and see the family and the beach.

Re: 1980's Gretsch USA Custom

Buy em! If you can get him down then all the better. Our own Bo Eder is 5' even and played a kit with a 26" bass drum. Its really not a height thing, really more about preference. I have a 24" and a...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I think at the point where you're finding Andy (KIS) to be talking down to you and passive aggressive is certainly the time to take a break. The guitar player from my new band and I call this type...

Re: 1980's Gretsch USA Custom

How is a kit with a 24" kick not desirable?? Do you trendy drummers just turn your nose up at anything that doesn't have a toy-sized bass drum?

If I had a kit in those sizes I would have the 13...

Re: What Snare Is This?

Right on the nose, that is a Ludwig Acrolite. Great score for a free drum.

Re: 3 piece for Metal (is it good enough)?

Based on the context I gathered that Rings of Saturn is a band, yup, a really weird technical math-core band that look like a bunch of baristas. Except for that long haired blond guy on drums of...

Re: Hug a Drummer Day

Here is the direct link to the video:

If Gavin Harrison gave me a hug I'd happily accept then linger until things got awkward. That's right, I'd...

Re: 3 piece for Metal (is it good enough)?

I have seen a few Rockabilly cats that just use a floor tom, seems to work well.

Are you just using the rack tom because that is all you need or do you not have a floor tom? If it is a stylistic...

Re: How were drums taught back in the day?

Uncle Larry has a great story of trying to learn a Deep Purple tune, I think it was Fireball, off the record. He didn't know that Ian Pace used a double kick on the record so he ended up learning to...

Re: How were drums taught back in the day?

This is a great idea for a thread. I am very curious to hear from the older drummers in the group and get their experiences on how lessons are done these days.

I remember reading an...

Re: Hahahahahahahaha :)

The guys in the church band were talking about this very video on Sunday. Still cracks me up. I'm going to watch the guy's interview later, I hope he's a class act like the Mad Drummer. I was very...

Re: comparing two new sets, Ludwig or DW?

DW does make 23" kick drums. Last I checked Scott Travis from Judas Priest plays a kit with 2 of them. I do imagine that finding heads would be a pain though. You'd have to special order replacements...

Re: A "mini" review, Sonor Martini

I wasn't sure about your toy kit till I saw the video someone posted (was it you? can't remember) of that jazz cat just ripping it up on one of these. A 14" bass may be limited in rock music but that...

Re: I'm taking the plunge! Drum lessons

Pata-fla-flas!!!

Good for you Joe. I don't care how old that dog gets, they can still learn a new trick. I was thinking of the period of downtime that I'm going to find myself in soon. Both of my...

Re: Sonor-king of the micro kits?

Speak for yourself and your tiny bass drum. My kit is a 24" monster that feeds on bad vibes and turns them into smiles and swingy goodness.

Re: Sonor-king of the micro kits?

Can we just make it a general rule that anything smaller than 18" is not a bass drum, it is toy. I'm really not keen on 18" bass drums myself but some of those Jazz cats can do wonderful things with...

Re: new floating snare project

I think we're going to have to ask you to document the process and snap many pictures of the CNC-ing of the shell for us restoration/build thread junkies.

I'm getting giddy for the process. I love...

Re: Straight from the horse's mouth.

My insufferable foodie and very good cook of an older brother has never been shy to let anyone know that the foundation of a good sandwich is the bread.

I do agree though, this seems a silly thing...
