Re: Gretsch Renown Maple vs PDP Concept Maple

My Gretsch Renown 57 bop kit will probably be the only "new" kit I'll ever own. Basically a USA kit assembled overseas. It's criminal what I paid brand new ($740 total). The kit is total class. The...

Re: Help date these Ludwig Rockers, please

The only Rockers worth seeking out are the black & white Ludwig badge (the won't have "Rockers" anywhere on them) - which were made in USA in North Carolina through late 1980s. Interiors will be...

Re: Tips on Selling a Drumset?

I have only come across one Manu K. set sold in my city over the last 5 years on Craigslist, so they aren't common. I'd go $400 if you have the matching snare. Good luck.

p.s. The kit also goes...

Re: Joey Kramer joins Pearl Drum Company

I always liked looking on the back of a baseball card and seeing a player's commitment to a team that he played with for years and years. Like Willie Stargell, the old Pirate - like

Re: Will anyone ever write another 'classic'

Not at the rate the 1960s-70s were churning out hits. I've heard the argument that radio today just doesn't play the good stuff but it's still out there. I don't think so. I listen to independent...

Re: Where do all the drum sets go?

I'm with you. I have no use for a 10" tom. It's 12 & 13 all the way too. I quickly disposed of my Catalina "Euro" kit because of the darn 10" size.

I'd look vintage if I were you. Ludwig...

Re: Why so many plies?

Don't forget Ludwig's "The Brick" snare. 20 plies and definitely for the macho man, construction worker by day, drummer by night kinda guy.

Re: Sakae drums

Has anyone shelled out the megabucks for a kit yet? I'd like to hear from anyone on this. Yes almighty they are. Just have to figure out how to afford.

Re: Better than the original??.....Noooooo!!!!!!

It's actually a compliment to the Beatles. Most, if not all, cover songs the Beatles recorded were much much better than the originals.

Informative post. Thanks. Yeah. I still haven't found the time to get my 18" Renown bass where I want it. This helps.

Re: This kit vs. this other kit

Get the Renown but talk the seller down $100. The burst finish isn't one of my favorites though. But sound-wise Gretsch wins. Made from USA shells but assembled overseas. Closest to US made as you...

Re: Uh Hum .... Hemorrhoid

Remember too that hem's start from within. Topical stuff like this is good but fix the problem from within the body. Get the bioflavinoids as well. Your butt veins will thank me later
