Re: IF you could get your guitarist to listen to you....what would you tell them?

Buy a metronome and we all realize there are a lot notes on your guitar, so you don't have to show us by playing all of them.

Re: Vintage Ludwig - what's the max value?

Well, I paid 850 clams for my 60's Ludwigs(22, 12, 14), but mine weren't really a set and some things had been repainted which dropped the price some, but the 12 and 14 toms were 5 didgit 1964s, so...

Re: Drum transport question!

Amazingly I can fit my entire 5 piece into my 1983 Mercedes 240D, we bought it from my dad's family for $1200 and it gets 30mpg, not a bad deal.

Re: 20", 18", or less Bass Drum Thread

Thanks Panda, but it all comes down to my extreme lazyness.
I was going to make one myself from some metal rods so it would be perfect for me, but my blow torch might not get hot enough.

Re: Full stave kit progress

How much would a set like that cost, but with 12x8 and 14x14 toms and 18x14 bass cost?

Re: Vintage Ludwig Supra-phonic Vs. New

Joe Morello used one and so did John Bonham, they're pretty different volume wise so it should be versitile enough for you.
