Re: Drummers you thought sucked,but...

Karen was a terrific drummer! Even though she was one of the most popular female pop singers she thought of herself as a drummer first.

Re: Ludwig's new Signet 105 drum line!

Out of curiosity, has anyone tried putting a gloss or semi-gloss coating on the Signet drums. I think the Ebony finish, for example, might perk up quite nicely.

Re: Sonor help

The lugs on the kick are spaced further away from the hoop compared to my Sonor Phonic, Phonic Plus or Performer kicks. The extra holes are also curious. A photo of the kick bearing edge and interior...

Re: Yamaha Recording Custom 14X8 Snare drum

Even though the snare in the pic has RC style lugs I don't think it was part of the RC line. The RC snares had "box" type lugs. This may have been one of the concert series snares even though the...

Re: Drums suck!
