Re: would you buy a ludwig accent drum set...

For $85.00 you can't go wrong if the kit is in good shape. Rehead it and you're good too go.

Several years ago a good friend of mine sold me his son's Ludwig Accent kit for $50.00. It had been...

Re: Am I the ONLY guy that likes the sound of poplar drums?

King of the inexpensive kits here.

Lucky for me, my parents were born during the depression and were young adults in WWII, so were taught to be frugal and not get rid of anything. So when I...

Mentoring a young drummer

It's funny where life takes you sometimes. What started off 3 weeks ago as a 1 off gig to help out a buddy who is interim WL at a nearby church, has pretty much turned into a voluntary long term...

Fun gig

I played again at the church where my friend was interim WL. Had a blast keeping my chops up and going thru the same routine I did almost every Sunday for 4 years before. Not too much heavy lifting...

Re: Max Weinberg and Paul T. Riddle: The Role of a Drummer in a Band

Interesting read! Thank you for posting. I the grand scheme of things I think Max was/is a very underrated drummer that never really got the credit he deserved.
