Re: What's going with Just Drums? Store closing?

Just saw that notice yesterday. Quite a shock. Seemed like they were doing ok. I wonder what happened. Shane seemed like a good guy. Any info?

Re: New Sonor Maple Bop and Safari

When I first read about Sonor Bop and Safari, they were advertised as basswood. At those price points, I'm inclined to believe basswood rather than maple.

Re: For you Sonor Safari or Bop Guys.....

When I bought my Tama Stagestar several years ago, it came with a pedal designed for the 18" kick drum. Hits just about center. I don't know if you can get one individually but it would be worth a...

Re: U S Made HB Drums

What I find disconcerting is that your post of 01:56 pm states that you are the builder of US HB drums but your 01:58 post says that you hear that HB is coming out with US built drums????

Re: Why is it all about the vocalist?

Buddy did indeed share a room with Frank when they were with Dorsey but neither of them liked it. Both men disliked each other. Buddy used to say things under his breath when Frank was singing and...

Re: problemi di improvvisazione???????

I don't speak Italian but it looks like he has some opportunity with jazz but is having a problem with improvisation. Anybody here speak Italian that could help.

Re: Drumkit Profit Margins

Re: Returning to drums -when is too old??

Re: Good practice pad?

+1 on the Aquarian pad. I also use a P4 pad that was designed by Pat Petrillo. It has different levels so I use it for different movements. Love both pads.

Re: What's Your Favorite Song?

Little history. Yes, "Stardust" was written by Hoagy Carmichael. Great tune. But probably the best recorded big band instrumental version was by the Artie Shaw band (with strings yet). Back in the...

Re: No Longer In Denial- I NEED A TEACHER!

I know the feeling. I was self taught but I haven't played in 50 years. I've started to practice again but I've lost much of what I used to know. It looks like it's teacher time for me too.

Re: How Much Trouble Would Playing Drums W/o Asking Cause

Easy answer....Always Ask. Look at it this way, would you pick up somebody's tenor sax and start to play it without asking? If you played trumpet would you like someone to walk over and start...

Re: Tama Imperialstar or Yamaha Stage Custom for noobie?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the Imperial Star poplar or phil. mahogany while the Stage Custom is birch? I would go with the Yammies. If I'm right - better wood. IMHO.

Re: How to settle tempo debate with guitar player
