Re: Tightening grommet on loose drum badge?

Simple 'tool' does the trick, should cost maybe $2 at the hardware store (one pic with grommet in place, other pic shows nylon/rubber option.) Put bolt through hole from inside, put 2 nylon washers...

Re: “To All The Drum Teachers I Had Before”

I've had just a few private instructors:

Jim "Jimbo" McIntosh and Frank Sanchez (Phoenix, '60s)
Bill Annis and Bob Goldman (L.A., '70s)

But I had an unofficial mentor who was a well-respected...

Re: The magic of a simple kit

FYI, assuming you have a snare, your 22/13/16 is actually a 4-pc. :O

I always keep my local kits simple, normally 4 pcs, occasionally just 3, and with one band a few years ago, just 2 - a kick...

Re: Anyone ever regret wrapping a drum set?

Big sacrilege here. About 35 years ago, I had a '50s Gretsch kit (kick & 2 toms) in WMP. I don't even recall how or why I got the kit, I wasn't a Gretsch or vintage fanatic then. But I decided that...

Re: Trigger Controlled Light Show?

Simple enough to trigger a light in each drum when it's struck, a company makes those (have seen them at NAMM either at Crush, ddrum or some booth like that.)

But going back a few decades, it...

Re: Heads over Shells

Thanks, but don't discount the fact that heads do bring something a little different to the inherent sound of the drum. Every element of a drum plays a part, including tuning, damping, stick weight,...

Re: Heads over Shells

Remo Belli said that, something like 'the sound comes from the head'. Oh wait... he owned a major head company! Gee, I wonder if that was just marketing? :O

I'm not saying a head isn't...

Re: Heads over Shells

Heads are certainly the biggest variation that can be made to a drum's sound by the drummer, due to the large number of choices available. But I would disagree that the head as a component of the...

Re: The curious case of Thomas Pridgen

These words are key. Once you leave the rehearsal room, music is a business. Making money at it depends on who will pay to hear that music, not necessarily how talented the players are. Jazz is a...

Re: Player date 2 or club date in a higher volume situation: which excels

I'm not familiar with the Player Dates, but I would agree that the Club Dates aren't made for projection.

A drum with a sharper edge will provide more attack and cut, and seem louder. In the...

Re: Interesting Observation Regarding Drum Quality and Sound Preferences

Drums are generally made better now than they were 40+ years ago. But Ludwig drums from a couple of eras - late-'50s to about 1963, and about 1968 to 1975 - are highly sought after for their sound,...

Re: Namm 2019 rumors

I think exclusivity has a lot to do with the fine thread rods. That is, when you need replacement rods, you must buy the DW brand.

Re: Concert style tom's

Part of the beauty of single-headed toms is that you really hear the difference between heads and to an extent, can target the desired sound.

So a 1-ply clear head will have a clean attack with...

Re: Concert style tom's

That's where they sound best - with the mic right at the bottom edge of the drum. Too far inside and you get a choked 'boing' effect. There's not enough room for the sound wave to develop. Bottom...

Re: Concert style tom's

Correct! Countless drummers (no pun intended!) did that in the '60/70s and beyond. Perhaps part of the lure of actual concert toms was the look, and less hardware attached to the shell had a benefit...

Re: Concert style tom's

I have a nice little site about concert toms - www.concerttoms.com (http://www.concerttoms.com) :)

Single-headed tom sounds depend on same aspects that affect traditional toms: shell material &...

Re: Ludwig's new Signet 105 drum line!

Let me emphasize that I weighed the decision carefully and repeatedly before proceeding, and was apprehensive even while doing it. I had considered finding a drum repair guy to use a drill press and...

Re: Ludwig's new Signet 105 drum line!

Possible, assuming you want the drum to lay completely level (with the pedal attached.) You could take off another .75" or so, but you'd also need to shorten or grind some relief into the top of the...

Re: Ludwig's new Signet 105 drum line!

A 20" kick and wouldn't normally need a riser. A 22" definitely wouldn't. No, it was a poor decision on the placement of the leg holder.

The drum does sit almost level with the pedal attached,...

Re: Ludwig's new Signet 105 drum line!

Earlier in this thread, I said something about letting you know in 5 years if concerns about the Signets (such as lug holes being pulled out of round...) were legitimate. Well, it's 5 years ago this...
