Re: Ever had a band or genre of music that you shouldn't like...but you do?

Well, if I could only pick one style of music, it would be country rock, e.g., Charlie Daniels Band, Marshall Tucker Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, 38 Special, etc. and nobody I know would be surprised.

Re: Kick snare and hi hat.

It's got a good beat and it's easy to dance to. I'd give it a 10, Dick.

Re: The Sound Of Drums

Hmmm... Shoebox-of-curiosities! I like the sound of that. My brother had a small shoulder bag - surplus of some indeterminate foreign military - he called it "the gray bag." While the contents...

Re: Drum Terms That Make No Sense...

Timber or timbre? :)

Red, Green? My wife is red/green color blind. I tortured that poor woman for almost 30 years - I've finally grown up. For the last 9 years I've tried to explain colors to...

Re: Change of pace

Probing for coins takes a bit of practice and it's very non-invasive if done right, but it's mostly only good for stuff 2 inches (50 mm) deep or less, so that means current pocket change. Most of...

Re: Change of pace

I love my metal detector - it's an oldish Whites 5900/Di Pro SL - analog!. I mostly only shoot my yard up north - house was built in the 30's. I've found a couple dozen wheat pennies, a silver...

Re: Hello

Thanks for checking in, Duncan. I often wonder about the *old* posters that seemingly drop off the radar. I remember you saying that you'd be out of pocket for a while. Glad that you are doing...

Re: Rebadging Drums

Yeesh - can't remember the last time I did a drum badge verification check on some kit onstage. Why not get a nice piece of smooth aluminum (aluminium) sheet metal, cut it to the *exact* shape of...

Re: what to do with unwanted cymblas?

Saluda (here in USA) takes damaged cymbals in trade. Might be worth an e-mail.

Re: Help a Dad out buying used set for son.

Nothing wrong with the Export set and Zildjian Z (series) cymbals. Perfectly fine for pre-teenager. The shell pack and hardware could very well take him all the way through high school.

I'd...

Re: Old age creeps up.

At least you still know where it is. ;-)

I asked my Dad for some tips on growing old. He said that most people will lose two things if they live long enough - one is their memory, and he...

Re: Top Musicians vs Average Musicians

I think many of you have touched on some of the keys to finding fame and fortune, but it seems the REAL key is having that one-word name, e.g., Cher, Bono, Sting, Madonna, Liberace, Prince, Einstein,...

Re: Cut the cable?

Cut the cable and Dish over 10 years ago. Now it's interweb for news, NetFlix and YouTube for entertainment and over-the-air broadcast as a back-up. I don't use an HD antenna - I've got an old...

Re: To drill or not to drill?

Drill if you want, Bo, but I'd go cheap and lazy first. Look up "caster cups." They come in all sorts of sizes, shapes, materials and flavors. Here's one...

Re: Musical memory

Flip side of that coin is, when you're 85 years old, you'll remember what you had for dinner on 29 JAN 2019, but you won't remember where you left your hearing aids. ;-)

I heard that inhaling the...

Re: I totally forgot how much I hated smoke

Repugnant, reeked, wretched, Smoke Free and then Hate?!? Hate is such a strong word.

Re: Oiling/Waxing a drum

If the drum was sealed (on the outside, at least), I doubt that you're losing much of the wood's natural "oil." Many tropical hardwoods are "oily" and hard to glue using normal methods, but I don't...

Re: Oiling/Waxing a drum

I'm with GD. If the external surface wood has already been sealed with some kind of drying finish and subsequently waxed, the tung oil probably won't do much. If you just want to protect the...

Re: A re-statement of the obvious

Don't know where Doc Watso is, so indulge me while I stand in.

Re: Struggles of Short Drummer and 5-Piece with Offset Toms

Assuming you're right handed and play your ride cymbal on a stand at your right, you could try mounting the 12" tom to the cymbal stand with a universal clamp and run your 10" to one side of the kick...
