Re: Drum gear gimmicks that didn't really catch on

Didn't someone make square drum sticks for a while?

Also, those colored 'killer bee'drumsticks, or some name like that.

Re: Why Modern Pop Music Is So Awful To Some!!!

LOL. I agree with most of the posters here in that I seldom find anything new that really intrigues me. As a kid, I used to bemoan what I called the 'Barry Manilow' form where songs would build and...

Re: Poor Mapex

LOL. I think people subconsciously associate 'Mapex' with 'Tampax' or 'Kotex'

Re: Wondering what my Tama Artstar II is worth

Nice drums, but people don't seem to be buying deep rack toms anymore. Add to that the color fade and scratches...

I'm no Tama expert, but I would guess 700 tops?

Re: So there's no such thing as an 11" tom...

Even Craviotto made a few sets with 11" toms. I once saw one set for sale on Steve Maxwell's site. It had 11" and 15" toms.

My Craviotto floor tom is a 15". Perfect size.

Re: craigslist mental cases!

I've seen plenty of scams and quacks on CL, but also got a couple of great deals.

I picked up a 1966 Super Classic in Champagne Sparkle that cleaned up amazingly well for 300. Definitely a keeper....

Re: Nesting Drums/Nouveau lugs for most compact rig? Help

I can't speak about the other nesting ideas, but taking the nouveau lugs off is a bad idea. There is an insert that keeps the tension rods from spinning freely.

I used to own a set with those...

WTH? Wake up cranky today? Sheesh!

Snare wire preferences?

I was going to get some snare wires for some of my drums and am leaning towards either Noble & Cooley or Canopus snares.

N&C only makes one version, so that's simple, but what are the thoughts and...

Re: Has anyone started playing out after turning 50 years old?

Never too late to learn something new, whether it be a new instrument, painting, photography, etc. Learning new things not only keeps your brain active, it keeps you interesting to other people.

It's not the size of the bass drum, it's the motion of the pedal! ;-)

Suggestions for improving sound of a Yamaha SC snare.

Re: Current drumming sucks

I feel your pain and here's how I deal with it.

Right now I'm doing a lot of work out of Marvin Dahlgren's "4-Way Coordination"

Re: WFL III Drums

Never played any, but saw some photos of the snare drums a while back.

They look like a trust-funder's pathetic attempt to somehow stay relevant in a business that's completely passed them by.

Those toms have no mounts drilled, so adding leg brackets would be easy.
