Re: Tama Starclassics!

What Bo said, though I'd steer you away from that DW kit because of the kick size.

Re: Ringo's Drumming: Harder Than It Looks

Ringo isn't/wasn't qualified to tune Abe's drum kit. Really, no disrespect intended but Abe is superior across the board. Abe is even a better singer. Let's just say that Ringo was a great fit for...

Re: Amazing (old) studio footage - Simon Phillips with The Coors :)

Mea culpa, I should have checked the video first as that was Toss the Feathers. I played the tune in a Celtic band and fell in love with the Corrs version.

Re: Amazing (old) studio footage - Simon Phillips with The Coors :)

I'm pretty sure they used studio drummers on a fairly regular basis. Check out Toss the Feathers. Awesome drumming.

Re: Irony?

Rest assured, when Andy and Dean build my signature snare, I'll be very much involved in the design process and will absolutely use the drum regularly. Andy, you're free to use my name and I won't...

Re: Terry Bozzio: The Evolution of His "Giant Sculpture"

You have to be a sick man to want to hire on as his drum tech. I might see him when he comes to town here in Maryland.

Re: Keith Carlock - OMG!

Don't worry Andy, I'll mind things while you break away to watch KC. You can trust me as I'm surrounded by all of those Guru drums.

Re: When you're in charge, which songs ...

Mustang Sally
Keep Your Hands to Yourself
Play that Funky Music

Honorable Mention:

Give me Three Steps
Sweet Home Alabamy

Can't tell you how much it pains me to play these songs.

Re: Snare drum Olympics - help needed - opportunity!

What a beauty. Congrats Bermuda. I really need to start checking this more frequently. Been hoping to add a segmented Guru drum.

Re: Sonor Prolite shell thickenss

This thin shell can't project nonsense is just that. Though I haven't gigged with them, my thin-shelled Tama Star bubinga kit is plenty loud for rock. Saw Gavin Harrison play a Sonor Lite kit at a...

Re: worth it?

I have it on good authority that there will be no new drum lines released at the next NAMM. The industry has decided to use NAMM as an opportunity to hold a tiddlywinks tournament. Not meant to be a...

Re: Rhythm Magazine/Music Radar review - Guru In-Tense english ash snares.

While positive, I felt the review was a bit generic and sterile. Devoid of any emotional connection with the instrument. Never got the feeling that a real human, much less a drummer, was conducting...

Of four kits I own, three would be impossible to part with:

1. Tama Star bubinga 5 piece in dark green cordia.
2. Tama Starclassic Select bubinga 7-piece in marbled green metallic
3. Pearl...

Re: Need help identifying exact model of this starclassic snare please

Clearly diecast hoops from the pic. Tama hasn't used that throw off in years, at least not since the early 2000s. My guess, and it is just that, is that it's one of the first Starclassic offerings....

Re: Update: 2014 Nashville Drum Show and Snare Drum Olympics

Sounds like a great event. I'll take the winners' list with a grain of salt, however, because the best snare drums I've heard, played, and own (Guru) likely won't be included in the competition.

Re: Some Pearl Reference Pure porn ;)

Love the kit and non-traditional set up! Another option for a different kick pedal feel is to switch out the beaters. I generally use the Pearl quad beaters on my DD as I never liked the stock felt...

Re: The matching snare

I prefer to have a matching snare for my high-end kits for potential resale value if nothing else, so three of my kits have them. In fact my Tama Star 6x13 sounds so incredible that I was going to...
