Re: Being dragged out of the 60's

My experience in a cover band for the last 4 years has been that I try to learn the song as faithfully to the original recording as my skill set will allow.
I noticed that after the song is in our...

Re: Deceptively cool and challenging drum tracks...

I agree with the post that said pretty much every drum track. The reason I agree is that if you are covering another drummer's part, unless you have it written out on charts that were exactly...

Re: PSA - Lubricate your P85.

I just picked up another Acrolite to back up my first one. The throwoff was very sticky, I had to move it sideways before it would move up and down.
I thought I had one of the "bad" p-85's.
I used...

Re: Anyone suggest good drum bags?

Just my 2 cents-
I have a couple of Roadrunner bags that are well made and are holding up well. They were priced pretty well, less than some of the others for sure.

I also have some of the Ludwig...

Re: Tuning Drums for Audition

I checked out that article on the Remo site- one thing I had not heard before was the bit about tuning the bottom head deeper ( which I take to mean "looser") than the top head.

Most advice I have...

Re: comparing two new sets, Ludwig or DW?

My local drumshop has a Ludwig legacy in black galaxy wrap that is really classy looking.
It is a 20" bass, 12" tom, and 14" floor. Tom and Bass are undrilled. Priced at $2300 for the set.
Maybe...

Re: How long does your snare cord last?

Thanks for all the responses.
I have new cord on the Acro now and one gig with it so far.
If the cord breaks again, I'll look for a burr on the rim or the snares.

All my previous snares used the...

I wanted to ask this in the Acrolite thread, but I thought it deserved a new thread(no pun intended)

Re: Straying out of my comfort zone

I sat in with a friends band once where the drums were electronic.
It was my first time other than messing around a bit at GC.
I thought the pads felt a bit weird, but I just played the songs the...

Little bump in the road with my new love affair. Second gig in the snare cord broke.

Re: Snare for a $200 budget

I recently picked up a used Ludwig Acrolite with new heads and snares for $129 at my local drum shop.
Sounds great and cuts through the classic rock band I play with nicely.

Re: NDD - Acrolite

Congrats!
I picked up my first Acrolite a few weeks ago and we did a gig last Sat night.

Re: New to me Acrolite

Thanks for the info- so my Acrolite is probably 1980-82 or so.
I was just curious, I had asked my local drum shop to look out for any Acrolite that was not powdercoated. The info I read online said...

Here are some pics of my new to me Acrolite.

I tuned it a bit higher yesterday ( about a full turn on the snare side and half a turn on the batter side), and I like it even better.

New to me Acrolite

I finally found a Ludwig Acrolite at a decent price. Contrary to rumours, I have not been able to find anything on Ebay that was around $100.
I bid on a few, but came up short. Per advice gleaned...

Re: need help counting

Bart- I counted it 4-6-4-4 until I had the feel and switched to 4-4-4-4 with one of the stops coming on the 2 of the third bar.
Larry was right- I had to play it through a few times and listen to it...

Re: need help counting

Thanks all- What threw me was the third stop is on the 2 beat which is a bit odd.
I started counting 6 beats in the 2nd measure (thanks Doug) and after a few go-rounds I got the feel and went back...
