Re: Is this a good drum set (size) for jazz?

You can play jazz on anything, honestly. I've got bass drums from 16" - 22", and any of them work for jazz, played the right way. Heads and tuning also play a big part.

Re: Ply configuration vs. wood type for a lower tone

+1 For this suggestion.

Re: On teaching

The best teachers in life always get to know their students. They never treat them like 'students'...they are treated like an individual; there's no 'all students are the same...one size fits all'...

Re: THE CLASSIFIEDS - For Sale / Wanted


Yamaha Recording Custom tom - 12 x 8 Piano Black. Have to be in the 8", as I already have the 10" version and am looking to make a little bop kit separate to my main kit.

There are lots...

Re: Australian Artisan drum makers.... how can you tell whos the "real deal"

I've owned three Brady's and a Fidock FatBoy, and I'm a big fan of Australian local builders in general. It would be tough to generalise about wood/builders/etc, as there are so many variables.
