Re: Tama Bell Brass tuning demo with Tune-Bot

Worrying about what someone else spent on their drums seems more crazy.

Re: Myron Grombacher Kits

I commend your ability to use the search function. So many dumb questions get asked over and over and over, a quick search would eliminate a lot of useless traffic.

Re: What would be your drummer nickname?

I have been given two nicknames over the years. My first was from some guys that played dungeons and dragons together. My board name there was Greek. "Snareamedes"

Then I had a keyboard player...

Re: Who builds steambent snares to order?

Contrary to what the Menace said, very few people actually make the steam bent shells. Carolina puts them together, very nicely, but he sources the shells from another party. I don't think I could...

Re: Snare Drum made from Seamless Stainless Steel Pipe

That is really cool. Did you cut a bed for the snare wires?

Re: Q: Black Nickel Plating?

I agree with Andy, but will leave the door open. I guess there can be some debate that the actual process changes the sound as opposed to just the coating itself. I am thinking if in doing the nickel...

Re: '51 Slingerland Resto-mod

Thank you Andy, much appreciated. Radio Kings and these Concert Kings came from the factory with deep beds. The shell needed turning down quite a bit to true it up, I think I took off close to 3/16"...

Re: '51 Slingerland Resto-mod

Thanks, one of my 4 kits. These are older Premier Signias which really need new heads top and bottom, but they sound pretty good in any setting, great drums.

Re: '51 Slingerland Resto-mod

Thank you. I tried several settings to photo the finish and failed every time. There has to be some secret with multiple lights or something, in person and on the video the finish blows me away....

Re: Who builds steambent snares to order?

Drum foundry is doing some of the best steam bent shells on the market. I have heard from quite a few guys who have been repeat customers. Priced nice too.

Re: Pearl Masters 50th Anniversary Ltd edition

Hard to tell what it looks like from that dark and smokey photo.
Good picture, but maybe add another where we can see the finish?

Re: Santos rosewood snare video

Nice playing Andy. I want to learn how to edit like that. How long does it take to put that video together after the actual recording?

Re: '51 Slingerland Resto-mod

This one is next, carbon fibre shell. I have all blue hardware ready to go. I inserted maple bearing edges top and bottom. 6 1/2" X 14"

Re: '51 Slingerland Resto-mod

Hard to see and only original picture, at the top of each lug the holes are opened up so much that the lugs do not cover. Aftermarket throw off, and lots of gashes and dents.

Re: '51 Slingerland Resto-mod

I use gravity low pressure guns, but you could do it with rattle cans. Spray your base colour, a couple light coats, let them tack up, then give it a nice heavy wet coat. You can find all different...

'51 Slingerland Resto-mod

Bought this snare last year, it was ugly and sounded as bad as any snare could. It had elongated holes, was out of shape, bad edges. So I got into rescuing it, and it turned out looking and sounding...

Re: "Museum piece" kits

When you buy them, you can make the decision when or if they will be played.
I have never been interested in restoring or owning drums just made for viewing, and I butchered many classic drums over...

Re: Yet another practice thread

Well that will be extremely difficult at best.
I guess you should start learning visualization techniques.
You can train your brain to practice patterns, but you will still need to ultimately learn...

Re: Is this a good deal?

As said previously, that is an entry level kit, slightly better than the kit you have already.
The cymbals and stands would bring the number up to where the $500 is fair market value. It is not a...

Re: Santos rosewood - a difficult build, but -----

Very nice. That wood is so expensive. I recently started a snare with that wood. Well, I messed up when sharpening my main gouge tool. It sucked the tool into the shell and it grenaded throughout the...

Re: Narada Michael Walden

I saw him with Jeff Beck. His playing knocked me out. Totally seat of the pants player. Seemed to always be going for it. That is what I want to be and see in a live drummer. I saw Ian Paice recently...

Re: juat bought new set...what brand?

The problem with restoring these types of kits as a "hobby/business" I would think would be all the Mr Noodles you would be eating to stay alive. Even after a full lustre restoration, they are still...

Re: How many bands have you been in at the same time?

I once played the same bar 3 weeks straight with 3 different bands. I think I weirded out the club owner a little by the start of the 3rd week. The whole band and full PA and lights would pack up and...
