Re: Ludwig Breakbeats Review

Haha! No it's not.
That's just the basement in my work, I have the Breakbeats kit set up down there most of the time.
It's actually to help with drainage, it's very damp (and cold).
I take the...

Re: Snare building course

I've considered this course myself before. Maybe I should drop some hints to the young lady!

I'd love to hear how you get on and also see some pics of your finished new drum.
Have fun!

Re: My final jazz drum set. Is it good? Anything i can improve on?

You've looked out what you would like to buy which is cool and you have listened to everyone's advice regrading the cymbals.

What I would say is if you like the hardware (and stool) that you have...

Re: Gretsch Renown 18" or 20" bass drum

Thanks very much for all the replies folks.
Seems like my leaning toward the 18" may work out well. I like the comment about the 18" being so much fun to play. I don't think the size will be an...

I am planning to buy a Gretsch Renown kit in the next few months and am 80 or 90%...

Re: Ludwig Breakbeats Review

I replaced the heads with coated Remo Ambassadors and tuned it the way I feel suits the music it's used for and the sizes of the drums. Makes a big difference.

It'll still never be to everyone's...

Re: Ludwig Breakbeats Review

I own this kit and it must be one of the best drum purchases that I have ever made.
I have it set up in the basement at my work and take it to rehearsals with my jazz band, it's a fantastic kit....

Re: Played my first Gig last night.

I have to agree with STXBob on this, I just cannot imagine acoustic guitar and vocals with a full drum kit being a good combination. I think they asked you to carry on playing percussion with them...

Re: Some band advice please guys :)
