I'm up to my butt in grooves.

Re: My Practice Routine--AKA I have no life......

Well, I did play bass in several bands for years, so I do have stage experience. And I don't have enough skills up to play with a band-yet. I figured probably one more year.

Do Big Snares Tune Better Than Small Ones?

I have a penchant for big, fat snare drums. Right now I have several snares, but my 2 go-to's are a 1980 Pearl 8x14 MIJ Brass Snare (I think it was an optional snare on the 1980 Pearl 'Genesis' kit)...

Re: Drum Show In San Diego

Um......they make them dead for a reason. The reason is, the engineer controls the sound. He will add the character of the sound AFTER the track is recorded dry. It is easy to add, and really hard...

Re: Restored 1980 8x14 Pearl Brass Snare Drum

I used 'Klean Strip' stripper which is a Polyurethane stripper. It worked great. Then I refinished with Rustoleum Gloss enamel.

Re: Restored 1980 8x14 Pearl Brass Snare Drum

Well, it still has a few rough areas, but I was lucky in that most of the hardware was barely pitted and needed only a little attention.

Re: Restoring and Old Pearl Snare Drum
