Re: Anyone ever try to poach your seat?

The band should have invited him for an audition, then when he got there told them what they thought of his actions.

Re: Maple or Birch for hard hitters ?

I think Maple kits are actually more expensive than Birch, e.g Mapex Meridian Maple costs more than the Birch. It seems to be the same with most manufacturers as far as I can see.

Re: Anyone wear Hats on stage? Ball Cap? Fedora? What?

As a follically challenged chap I wear a beanie when it's cold or, more often, a bandana when it's warm to stop the sweat getting in my eyes.
I usually have to change it a couple of times. I sweat...

Re: What was the name of your first bands?

The first band I was in was "The Objects" in 1978 & I was a (not very good) drummer. We had discovered Punk the year before & decided we wanted to play it...

Re: Need help choosing drum kit/shell pack

The snare is a Mapex Black Panther 12x7" Maple/Cherry that I picked up for a snip on ebay. A great drum that is no longer made, but I still see them regularly on ebay.

Re: Need help choosing drum kit/shell pack

The M Birch is great. I have the Black Forest Sapphire version of the one they have on there, and very good it is too! It's certainly well worth considering.

I'm 52 & play in a punk band, so on stage wear for me is a T-shirt, jeans, & converse trainers. It goes with the style of music.

Oh my word!

The whole thing weighs 25kg.
