Re: RIP Mr. Ed Shaugnessy

Very sad day. For me, Ed was the last of the original jazz drummer greats. I just ordered his book "Lucky Drummer" this week. He's one of my all time favorites. He will be missed.

Re: Playing Hymns...

Re: Church Drum Sets

Thanks, I'll keep it in mind if we ever get to upgrade. Most churches in my area have nice instruments except for the drums. You either bring your own or make due with what they have already, but...

Re: Double tom mount-one tom sings, the other sobs...........

I had the same problem with 12 and 13 inch toms on a double tom mount on another kit. As I recall, I tuned the 12 a little higher than normal and the 13 a little lower (or something like that). If...

Re: Carlton Barrett

Carlton Barrett was a great drummer who is truly under-rated. His influence lives on to this day. While probably not known for technique, he had great feel that was perfect for the music.

Re: Ludwig Keystone vs. Classic vs. Legacy

I highly recommend the Classic Maples, but you wouldn't go wrong with any of the three you've mentioned. I ordered mine in 2004 and have never had a problem. I think they're great all around drums....

Re: Another praise band...

I play in a Southern Baptist church in a traditional/praise-n-worship setting, and just like everything else in life, sometimes it's difficult. People have different ideas of how everything should...

Gretsch parade drum

A co-worker has a 10 x 14 Gretsch round badge parade drum or marching snare. It seems to be all original with wooden hoops, strainer, snare wires, and drumheads in fair shape. It was in an attic for...

Re: Most Underrated Drummer - Male + Female?

I've always liked Bun E. Carlos from Cheap Trick. I know his playing is simple and straight-forward, but I think that's a good thing sometimes. He always has a great sound too.

Re: Ludwig Lead Times

I ordered Classic Maples in April 2004 and received them in June 2004. It sounds like that's about the standard amount of time to wait. They're worth it.

Re: W.S. Holland

He's a great drummer. Lot's of energy in his playing. I'm not sure how old he is, but he still plays in this area from time to time. Love that double bass Rogers kit.
