Re: Incredible "policy" from Memphis Drum Shop

When buying any item from outside of your country you should always call the seller.
You could have a trusted friend in the USA buy the drum and ship it to you.

Re: Only Weird Al Could Pull This Off-Love It

Al's spof vid is a thousand times better than the stupid movie that it is based on!
I think that Al should get an Oscar for his performance.
A few weeks ago Gary the piano player in my Jazz Quint...

Re: Serious drummer? (I think not ;)

I just wish that you would bring a towel to wipe off with. Nobody needs to see your flabby abs as you pull up your shirt to use as a towel!
Also, investing in a decent kit would be a good idea. :)

Re: Tuning with those big round bearing edges

Just backing up what has been stated.
My experience with my 2012 Ludwig Club Date kit which has medium/thin thickness shells and full round over edges is to tighten the resonant heads tighter than...

Re: Traditional grip for rock?

This is a "Chicken or the Egg" argument that will never be resolved.
There are some past threads about this issue that became insanely heated and argumentative.
It's silly really. As long as the...

Re: Traditional grip for rock?

Use the grip that works for you. I use traditional and matched as I see fit. I often switch between the two during a song. I have always played that way.
By the way, I am a lefty and I play my kit...

Re: Elementary jazz question about accenting on the ride

It depends entirely on the music that you are comping.
As a rule I don't do things like that. I let the cymbal sing and then hit the one with the BD. There are times when you are doing what is...

Re: Hoops?

Experiment with hoops. They make a big difference in the sound of drums.
Hoop choice is personal and there is no rule to which hoops one uses.
Have fun with hoops.

Example; I prefer 2.3 mm...

Re: Wrapping your kit?

Wrap will not change the sound of your kit substantially. You can glue it or tape it.
If you tape it you can remove it and change it much easier in the future.

Re: Vintage Drum Tuning anomaly

It all depends on the tuning pitch that you are after and what heads you are using. For Rock tuning I tension between 1/4 and 1/2 turn after finger tight. 2 Ply batter heads sometimes go to 3/4 turn....

Re: Lacquer vs Wrap - how much does it really matter?

Makes no difference as far as I can tell. Wrap is better suited for kits that are frequently banged around from the demands of gigging, etc because it is more resilient.

Re: New kit....don't know why though

Cool little kit. Does one really need a reason to buy a kit? You saw it and you must have seen something that you liked about it in order to buy it.
It shouldn't be any more complicated than that....

Re: OT: Clark Terry Dead, Age 94

Clark was one of the great ones that's for sure. I have always liked the trumpet. I have always liked his playing.

Re: Got hustled, any input apreciated

Your best option is to keep them and use them. They really aren't bad drums, they just aren't as good as the earlier Rogers kits.
You only lost a few hundred dollars to learn a lesson that is much...

Re: Bobby Colomby

I struggled to play along with this tune when I was a kid. I still listen to BS&T today on a regular basis. Bobby was an icon for me. I loved his timing and control.

Re: Restoring hardware on an old kit

Remove the hardware from the drums before cleaning and polishing.
You will never be able to create a new finish unless you have the hardware re-plated. Once the plating is pitted, corrosion will...
