Re: How Joe English Got the Gig with Paul McCartney

So Joe English replaced Geoff Britton? Sounds like variations on a theme.

Re: Just saw "The Wrecking Crew" movie

Fun movie. Love to listen to Hal's stories and the other Crew's discussions.

Available to watch anytime for $3.99 on Amazon instant movies, which is how I saw it.

Ringo Rama Documentary

Somehow, I missed this on YouTube. I didn't see it posted on DW in the recent past.

Ringo like you've never seen him before, up close and personal (2011?), relaxed as usual, fooling around and...

One link called "100 Years of Rock in less...

Re: Pearl Roadshow Jazz Kit

I was able to purchase the configuration with everything, including those crummy cymbals, for the $329 total.

Re: Pearl Roadshow Jazz Kit

Thanks, Frank.
Sounds like a confirmation of what you thought before. I ordered a Jet Black kit earlier today from Guitar Center, who matched the eBay retailer price out the door- if I don't end...

Re: Pearl Roadshow Jazz Kit

Frank:
How has the Pearl RS held up so far and how are you liking it, including the snare with the new head you were putting on it back in May?
I might consider this now since I need another kit to...

Re: Ludwig Breakbeats vs. Sonor Player kit

You made the right choice w/the Player Kit. Very well made and easy to transport. I love the bass drum which really punches through, plenty of low end. Sonor still makes these kits, but Sam Ash no...

Re: Sonor Designer Maple Light Snare- 14 x 6.5

I bought the drum today for right around $400 :) But as you've pointed out, I do need the slotted drum key. It's being ordered right away.

This drum is in a very clean and solid condition. It...

Re: Sonor Designer Maple Light Snare- 14 x 6.5

Thanks for that info, VF. I just noticed your post and also saw on eBay that the more exotic finish did fetch $672. I'm hoping to land this right around $400 now.

Re: Sonor Designer Maple Light Snare- 14 x 6.5

I'm with you on this price. Strangely, another same model sold for $600 on eBay recently, but it might have been almost mint.

Jeremy:
Thanks for those specifics which I'm using now to negotiate a price. Of course I hope it is in as good condition when I see it as the seller says it is.

Re: Sonor Designer Maple Light Snare- 14 x 6.5

Perfect, thanks for that explanation overall that would seem a very reasonable perspective. We're not dealing with an heirloom but a depreciated drum with a standard lacquer finish vs. exotic, as...

Re: Sonor Designer Maple Light Snare- 14 x 6.5

Thanks, SD- that bit of info is very helpful.
I wonder what the market value for this drum might be, assuming it's in very good condition?
I've only seen a few similar ones for sale, at a much...

Re: Sonor Designer Maple Light Snare- 14 x 6.5

Hoop guards. They don't make those any more do they? They seem awkward.

Asking is $550 OBO. Is it worth around $400 now?

Sonor Designer Maple Light Snare- 14 x 6.5

Asking all Sonor experts, can you chime in?
From what I've read, this model is one of Sonor's best and the snare is supposed to sound superb through a wide tuning range. I've always wanted to try a...

Re: 5x15 Supralite

Congrats on your SL.
I bought a 14 x 6.5 a couple of years ago and love it. Its my go-to snare for medium to larger/outside gigs.
As an LM400 on steroids- good comparison.
I installed a coated...

Re: What is your drum setup pet peeve?

Ride cymbals set so low and flat it would be impossible to crash them without banging into or pushing over the floor tom.
I don't like rides set up too high either, but for me it has to be set...

Re: stick keeps sliding in traditional grip

You might consider trying to use some Zildjian Drumstick Wax. This is cheap and a tin lasts forever.
This isn't a cure nor a crutch to solving the slippery stick issue, as technique and practice...

Re: Poll: Buddy Rich

Buddy with match grip-tympani style, circa 1948. Snap and bounce technique at its best-- of course, with no lessons. Like watching Krupa's style at fast- forward speed.

Re: I must be an anachronism

A smidgeon. Exactly what I've noticed so far. I have a 20 x 14 Ludwig Club Date bass drum and a Sonor Player Kit 20 x 12. A bit more low end on the CD and a bit punchier on the PK. I recently...
