Re: Does this sound right?

Bo, it seems that Musician's Friend also sells single sticks for less than the brick. It pays to check all of your options before dropping your dollar!

Re: What does your kit say about your "drum nerdiness"?

Not too nerdy here ...

One point for the splash. And 3 each for my 2 cowbells (one for rock and one for Latin).

Seven total ... sort of boring.

Re: Controlled Bounce?

Toolate, you have the first part right, but not the second part. Like the OP, I, too, was taught the Controlled Bounce back about 1967. My teacher considered it the PRIMARY lesson during my first...

I loved the sound of all the kits I've had. The...

Re: The nut on the bottom of the top hihat keeps coming loose. Lock-Tite the SOB?

I had a Ludwig Hi hat clutch that started doing the same thing - the bottom nut would loosen.

Re: Favourite part of the kit

Wow! Favorite part of my drum kit?! That's like asking who's my favorite child! LOL!

If I HAD to choose my favorite, I'd have to choose my bass drum. That bugger just commands attention!

Re: Preshow Rituals

No real rituals here...

I show up, set up, schmooz with the folks after sound check. Then I sit down and play music.

No alcoholic drinks...no worries, no drama.

Re: Who still puts a pillow/blanket in the bass drum?

I understand this newspaper idea. I like a controlled BOOM from my bass. Pillows and blankets produced too much "thud" for my liking. I read that Rikki Rockitt used Styrofoam packaging peanuts to...

Re: Ludwig 3 tom rack--what is this?

Hey Pete,

That is a Modular tom mount from the 80's-90's. I put a cymbal mount on the center mine.
