Re: New addition to the family

My favorite instrument, and one which I have never been able to afford. :(

Jenco is a good instrument, if they're maintained.

Re: What makes a pro kit?

Seriously, I've said over and over that it ain't the arrow, it's the Indian. As for what's pro-level gear, that changes based on the expectations...

Re: Is live music dead?

I think you might be on to something there.

Here on this island, we're blessed with a deep talent pool. For ~50,000 full-time residents, to have the kind of music scene we have is incredible....

Re: I thought this was strange....

I've used them as batter heads and really enjoyed the sound. Very mellow, warm, and "vintage-y." Useless for rock, in my opinion. I really liked them for jazz and big band.

They didn't last very...

Re: Removing sharpie from Ludwig wrapped drum?

Awesome! :D

I used to do map overlays many years ago when I wore a uniform. Drape some clear plastic over a map, then draw important things on it with ultra-fine-point Sharpies. If I needed to...

Re: Pork Pie Snares?

I apologize for my tone and poor choice of words. My dander gets up when something which is not a matter for debate is debated. However, that's not an excuse for rudeness.

At the same time,...

Re: Pork Pie Snares?

It's probably purely aesthetic in this case. I dislike it because it's indicative of a certain lack of QC. If you're willing to let a drum like that into a promotional still, what else is lurking...

Re: Pork Pie Snares?

Of course it's lug splay. Look at the image again. Look closely at the right-hand side, where you can see white between the tension rods and the shell. Any fool can plainly see that's lug splay.

Re: Pork Pie Snares?

Good Lord. Look at the lug splay on that. And this is considered "good workmanship" coming from a custom shop?

Nope nope nope.

Re: My Signets and the gong

Thank you! Based on that I'll order one. While we have a FLMS, they don't have a very good drum/percussion selection at all, so trying one in person is right out. :(

Re: Wanting to join a marching band

I <3 a good bass line. When I was teaching marching percussion, one of the worst spats I ever got into with a band director was shuffling around his battery. He'd shunted all the kids who could only...

Re: My Signets and the gong

What do you think of the Pearl pedal you've got on the Signets in the last pic? Thinking about picking one up.

Re: Wanting to join a marching band

I'm glad I'm not alone in thinking that snare chart isn't all that challenging. I played more intricate stuff in college and DCA.

And for anyone who thinks double-stroke rolls and rimshots aren't...

Re: Brand Loyalty

True, but then that can be true even if the company makes every single component itself. Loyalty is only demonstrated through exercise.

I disagree. It is possible to have a world-class-quality thing made to your specifications without owning your own production facility. Ask Jim Koch of Boston Beer. The majority of Sam Adams is...

Re: Your Favourite Songs To Cover / Play Along To

One day, when I can actually play this, I'll think I can actually play. Until then I'll keep trying.

Re: So...where do you keep your spare sticks?

I do! I went Googling just now to see if I could find one. I could only find an expired eBay listing for a Ludwig item. I found some new similar things, though!

Found this:

You know, I have no idea. Perhaps they do. If they do, mea culpa, and I sit corrected.

Re: Past a point, are teachers necesssary?

It's been noted that not all teachers are created equal. Some suck. It's a shame to waste time and money figuring out your teacher isn't a good fit for you.

It's also important to note that not...

I never yelled at my students. But I never hesitated to make them - or their parents - feel guilty as hell. My spiel went something like this: "Hey, you didn't have time to practice. I understand....
