Re: Good snare

At 150.00, I would aim for a used 60's or 70's Ludwig Acrolite.

You are probably not going to find too many Supraphonic LM400's at that price with out buying a drum that needs a little work.

Re: DW Pricing/Price List?

Hilarious. I was going to suggest taking the diameter of the drum and adding a couple zeros. But that might actually be the discounted price.

I bought my DW's back in the Keller shell era. Even...

Re: 6 lug main snare?

Sorry but more lugs on a snare drum is hardly a marketing scam. If anything the purpose of outfitting a drum with 6 lugs was so companies could sell drums as student models at a lower price point.

Re: Jazz Songs to Play Along With

I too recommend the use of a Real Book so you can follow along and start to learn how most jazz tunes are structured. Then it becomes imperative that you...

Re: A humble plea to help a beginner....

this is correct.

ruff, single drag, double drag

With ruffs, think on the beat. the grace notes, as mentioned are an extension of the beat and played close to the single stroke.

Re: 22 x 14 bass drum ?

I too am convinced that 14" deep is the magic pill for bass drums. It amazes me that some manufacturers don't offer this as their standard depth. I have owned deeper bass drums in the past 16" and...

Re: Anyone have a sponsorship?

Ahh, but what flavor would you endorse? I would be singing the praises of Peanut Butter. I love the standard Cap-n Crunch too but I swear it rips the roof of my mouth up every time I eat it.

Re: What do you think about this finish?

Uh, No. I am way more of a natural finish person.

But like others have mentioned - if you like it, that's all that matters.

When I was 15, I had a big washy 22" 1950's A Zildjian ride with a 3 rivet cluster that I bought in a pawn shop with money from my first job. I think I paid 55.00 dollars for it. I remember my drum...
