Re: What's your latest purchase?

Yes, haha!
Admittedly, I didn't try that hard to not buy it. It was more like putting it off haha!

The 22" Crash of Doom is a really cool cymbal!
The bell is really nice! Nice sweet "ting"...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

I was unsuccessful in my attempt of not purchasing.

It's on order, and should come shortly.
Pics when it arrives.

Re: What's your latest purchase?

I'm trying reasonably hard to not purchase a 22" Zildjian Crash of Doom.

I might not be successful in not buying.

Re: Ludwig question

Any specific questions?

General stuff: The shell should have a stamp of the date (ex. my CM's have 307, March 2007).
Anything else with the CM shell would be in the current literature.

Re: The 8 lug snare drum

I actually sold it a couple months ago. I did have it for a few years though :-)
I DID dig it a lot, but not as much as other snares I have and didn't really use it.

I LOVE an 8 lug snare.

Re: First Ludwig Snare

Congrats on the snare.
I have one like it and it's a great one.

Ludwig snare wires sound nice, no problem with them.

I use Canopus wires on ALL my snares. They just sound better to me, and the...

Re: aluminum DW or Ludwig snare?

Tubes make it slightly more open sounding, but it depends on how YOU tune up the drum.
If you want an open sound, get the 1.6 thickness hoops. That will make more difference in sound than tubes or...

It likely didn't catch on in the real world because of cost, hauling it, board space, system limitations, stage space....

It looked kinda cool, but the PA systems out these days can push out those...

Re: Hi-hat Stand and Snare Stand Inquiry

The top hi hat cymbal is just tightened up too much.
If you like the way it sounds that way, it's OK, but "usually" there is some play in the top cymbal. You can have them as loose as you want if...

Re: I can't buy a high end snare drum

When I got my Brass 6.5 BB's they weren't in the $799 list range yet. Probably $599 list range--maybe '02 & '04.

My '89 Bronze 6.5 BB came with the Ludwig UFO die cast hoops and was only $355, so...

I agree with Smoke too.

Re: Retro Drum Pics

That kit is pretty dang sweet!

I play on a Breakbeat kit at one rehearsal site, and it's a fun kit to play.
I haven't played a bass drum smaller than a 16 though.

Nice pics also :-)

Re: Your Moment of Glory

The time Simon Phillips saw me, and came right off the Toto bus to shake my hand and tell me how much he enjoyed my playing and the sound of my drums.

That was pretty awesome :-)

Re: Bent Sweet Ride - How Much Would You Pay?

I just got a cymbal at cost because of a ding in the edge.
It was from my regular shop that I have gone to for about 40 years tho.
GC is like the K Mart of music stores (IMO) and I doubt the...

Re: Do you have a piece of equipment that you've used since day 1 and still use it regularly?

My Pearl Eliminator/Redline pedals have been used since the day I bought them. No issues whatsoever.

Beato Bags--Cymbal, hardware and stick bags. FANTASTIC.

Re: Is this crazy?

I don't really adjust anything either.

I might tweak the snare a little to suit my mood.
Unless one lug is out from moving around or sitting in my vehicle all day before doing load in, they stay...

Re: Deep bass drums

The total sound of the drum is nicer.
The balance of attack, and clear tone. The whole drum is off the floor so there is nothing much to impede the shell from giving all it can.
The lift is...
