Re: 2003 DW Collectors Series - Broken Glass finish

That's white marine pearl. And yes, the May is considered a value-added accessory. A pricey one for sure but a sweet set up if you gig regularly.

Oh, and ask for the date inside the shell. That...

Re: Rediculously Massive Drum Kits

I've been guilty of this in the past. Now, a 4 or 5 piece is just right.

Re: Ringo and Greg Bissonette sitting in with Toto

I just kept clicking on more and more videos from that show.

Re: comparing two new sets, Ludwig or DW?

The only thing I don't like about you Ludwig spec is the lack of Atlas mounts. Seems like all the hardware is old-school, which is cool, but specing mounts might sway me towards the Luddies even...

Re: Gigging Kit Help?

All of the kits you listed, I think any of them will suit your purpose. Tama Silverstar is another idea too. I would be happy with any of them. Gretsch Catalina is a solid choice. The Ludwig Accent...

Re: Tempo comfort zones

On a side note brought up earlier:

I was always told you stick to the tempo at start. So, if the guitar player comes in first and fast, I have to get up to his speed and lock it down for the...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Two things

A used Wuhan 18" china for $20. Sounds terrible. Perfect

Just order that foam stick holder that mounts on top of the bass drum, between two lugs under the tension rods. Holds 4...

Re: Cover Band Drummists - How accurate are you?

I would say I strive for about 70% accuracy. Get the tempo, beat(s), major fills, and it's good to go. There are very few songs we do that require exacting parts i.e. no Rush.

I learn about 4-5...

Re: 9X13 floor tom? Sensible?

Yeah, this drum would cost too much, not offer much in terms of playing (except for some U2) and probably be awkward. I'm not short (6'2") but I set up pretty low. This 9" depth could be just a bit...

9X13 floor tom? Sensible?

I've been hunting for a 14X14 for my Keystone kit to no avail. The finish is discontinued. I could buy a brand new one for $400 and re-wrap it but for that cost, I'm not really in love with it.

Re: Cajon pedal

I recently got into cajon for acoustic gigs with my band and I picked up a Gibraltar pedal for $75 from Guitar Center.

It works great for what it is. The bracket doesn't want to stay on,...

Re: Question for Gretsch guys about a particular Renown set

That was a 2 up and 2 down kit. Ideal. I added the 14X14 and 9X13 later (which was cut down) to the original 20X22, 8X12, and 16X16.

Never missed the 10 with that set up. Sucks about the deal but...

Re: Question for Gretsch guys about a particular Renown set

Great drums. You'll be happy.

20X22 is a cool size. I never had an issue with playing it. Here's my final version of that kit before I sold it.

Re: Those of you who have "sound proofed" a room for your drums...

I had a basement room built when building my former house. Offset 2X6 studs room-within-a-room style. The key was limp mass vinyl. I used 3 giant rolls of the stuff to weave between the stud. Filled...

Re: When people ask you to 'play something', what do you play?

Usually some kind of funk beat. Think a funkified version of Walk this Way. And some linear fills with it. Twenty seconds is enough.

Re: What's the best things about your playing?

Number one for a very long time: my funky right foot
Number two: tasty embellishments
Number three: solid meter/groove.
Number four: my good nature and reliability

Do I need to list my...

Re: height versus snare height

I sit about average but my kit is pretty low. Snare is 25" and I'm 6'2". I like my legs at a perfect 90.

Re: What's your latest purchase?

We do but this isn't the place for it. Start a new thread.

Just got a new pair of Westone UM3 PRO IEM's to replace my 10 year old UM2's. Smokin hot deal so I can't wait to hear what I've been...

Re: Who was your first drum clinician?

I saw him around that time too. Maybe earlier on the Ultimate Sin tour. Played a school auditorium for a local drum shop. Got my Starfire head signed by him. I remember being super scared to ask for...

Re: Who was your first drum clinician?

Ed Shaughnessy-1985 or so at a small music store. Don't remember much because I was still too green to understand what he was talking about.

Re: Heuer Drums

That no doubt is a huge effect. But that wasn't my feeling going into the purchase. It evolved. But it didn't last because I went Gretsch after that. Then Ayotte. Back in 99, there was a lacquered...

Re: Heuer Drums

Oh, I agree with that. But I don't directly see Dave Weckl playing HHX Evo's and correlate his playing to mine and thinking I can channel him through those cymbals. I will give them a chance in the...
