Re: To rack or not to rack?

I'm with Ben..

I have (1) DW 9000 that holds 2 toms & my 3 smallest cymbals, and (1) Gibraltar that holds the 3 big cymbals. Even with 2 floor toms, just 2 stands is very unobtrusive.

Possible to use Pearl Opti-Mount with other tom brackets?

I'd like to give them a try, but don't want to convert everything over to the tube style rods. All I'd need is to replace the Pearl tom brackets on the Opti-Mounts with something that accepts an...

Agree 100%.
Very fine drummer, and a swell guy.

Re: Bass drum reso logos

I dig this..
A little flashier that what I would normally go for, but a good mix of retro and modern.

Re: Best way to dust the drum kit..?

Will that get under the tension rods? Or, will a feather duster get in in there?

Best way to dust the drum kit..?

I have black, lacquer finish shells, which show dust a lot. What is the best product or technique for dusting those things? Do you keep the shells dusted, or do you not bother?

Thanks

Re: Proper way to list drum sizes

I prefer Diameter x Depth. I just wish people would use a symbol!! That would clear up confusion.

Re: Outrages prices for used gear that you want.

I usually steer clear of any ad that says something like: "Over 2500.00 invested.." That means the seller thinks it's worth whaterver price. Like the classic 1200.00 Exports with ZBT's.

I get it....

Re: Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor

My introduction to Motorhead was the intro and "Ace of Spades" of off the "No Sleep.." LP. Talk about an eye-opener! Hooked for life. I loved that guy, and admire his playing for sure..
