Re: Advice on value of monster vintage Pearl kit

That's a nice kit and I think you can get a good price-Pearl keeps making Exports for a reason. So 70s might qualify as "vintage" too???

Re: Annoying buzz in snare drum

Good call-should have been first thing to do-it may need centering or some snare or some faulty wires. Some wires seem to work better with string and other work better with plastic on my snares-I...

Re: Old age creeps up.

I already live in pain from all my other daring feats of youth LOL. I was just kidding I'm afraid of heights now-I still get positional vertigo sending me flying all over the place anyways. I can't...

Re: Annoying buzz in snare drum

Yep sympathetic buzz is a problem I was having and finally got rid of it-then recording I noted a buzz in my snare when I hit it. A note then a resonance buzz for a millisecond. You can detune lugs...

Re: Old age creeps up.

I fought aging but now embrace it-as long as I'm growing old I'm at least not dead. Silver lining ;) In fact I'm taking up daring feats with high risk so I can beat dying of age related factors. See...

Re: Old age creeps up.

This is a timely thread. Get up make coffee, turn on news to channel surf to see if ignoring all the opinion I can filter out some news LOL. Suddenly I'm hearing this noise-I'm like hmmm. Even with...

Re: Time away from kit

I would go through withdrawals and die. The last 24 years I've never been away more than a week or so. The last 55 years I've owned only two practice pads-threw away first and gave away the second-I...

Re: Feeling Faint During Shows

Re: Bo's last name

That is an awesome name. I would love it when they call roll in class -you could milk as deity or monarchial sense. There was only one other "Arthur" in my home town and it hasn't been a popular name...

Re: Bo's last name

Wait a minute GetAgrippa is just my moniker not my name. So Bo is likely the same and his real name is "Jed I. Knight". I wanted my grand baby to be called Deathstar if a boy. No one liked my...

Re: Bo's last name

I thought "Bo" his abbreviated middle name. So Mathew Bowen Eder? I share a common give up pronouncing my last name since 90% people do. Why bother.

Re: Pre-planned drum fills??

Or it could be they're just an idiot and lack good musical taste and no ego evolved :) Maybe a little of both? I agree with you Larry and I find "fills" just not that necessary in some music.

Re: Pre-planned drum fills??

I guess there are some signature fills that are so part of a song that if you don't play people will think it's heresy. But I like to noodle around in practice with a song-all with the goal of...

Re: Maybe I'm done compensating for my height ;)

Re: Dixieland

Yep played some Dixieland band and Gloryland Band (Christian music by Camp Kirkland). Cowbell, wood block, and I had an orchestral whistle that came in handy. Fun stuff. I love the "When the saints...

Re: Why is jazz drumming still so dominant?

Jazz has contributed to rock, metal, numerous genres-as it had contributions from various genres itself. Jazz cats with double bass-blazing bass patters and blasting decades ago. It's all fused...

Re: Maybe I'm done compensating for my height ;)

Why not just buy a 20 in bass to match one of the kits you have? If you can't find a match finish-buy used one of correct shell then wrap it-you can have one made to match. Here ya go a Pearl Decade...

Re: Weird Al and Bermuda

Thanks GruntersDad for posting and newoldie for context. Congrats Bermuda too-you should be proud and get written credit somewhere for your work-bad etiquette not when you do the work.

Re: These posts I see on Craigslist

I've noted the same trend-there are small setups where they bring piped music and play along-or maybe two people. I've thought about that at a nearby pub-they have a "music corner" for one or two...

Re: Why is jazz drumming still so dominant?

Jazz is the least popular music in US. But I've noted numerous rock drummers talk about Tony Williams or some other jazz cat as being inspirational. I don't know how universal but it seems most music...
