Re: Musicians who don't want to rehearse

I play with a regional act that is a 10 piece band. If you asked ANY of these guys to rehearse they'd laugh. This is a band that brings in $3500+ per show (corporate, weddings, clubs, etc).

Re: How many drum kits are too many?

I tend to agree with the opinion that it's really a personal thing. For some living in a small apartment 1 kit is all that is possible. If you have the room and the cash, 100 kits may be what you...

Re: RIP Mr. Ed Shaugnessy

I had the pleasure of meeting Ed once. He had a presence when I spoke to him. Extremely classy and a great person. Quoted as saying he "survived" the Buddy duel.

Re: Mom and Pop vs the big box

I work for a mom and pop music organization.
Sadly, I can tell you that the small stuff that you guys pass on is what adds up in sales totals. It's not just the big stuff.
Now, you can't give bad...

Re: Do you wear the drum brand?

Zildjian just changed logos again. Guess what? Bigger!
The "Avedis" is off the logo and the monster A that appears on A Custom will now appear on standard A as well. I couldn't believe when I heard...

Re: & I was concerned about our prices!

The kit/builder you're referring to is Jeff Ocheltree. He made the 2002 snares, and the "Phantom Steel" snares (carbon steel). He has also made a few kits. I know a guy who personally has one and he...

Re: Any ingenious solutions for cymbal storage?

I use a "cymbal tree" I picked up from a local store. It was empty, so I made an offer on it. Go by any local store and ask them if they have one they can spare; you may be surprised. It will hold...

Re: Best purchases you've made for drums.

Re: Anyone ever sit down at a friend's drumkit that "sounds awesome" and

Yes. This often happens on house kits I find. Also, if you play originals and agree to share a kit, it will surely almost "sound awesome" until you get there.

Re: Bar fight

Re: This thread is for all the lurkers

I lurk daily.
I've been a member for a while, but I rarely post...not sure why. I guess I'm just shy. I did start a "covers vs. originals" thread that gained some traction a while back.
I'll try...

Re: What makes the drum worlds' "Les Paul - Marshall Stack" or "P-Bass - Ampeg Stack" equivalent?

I find more often that not the studio has a Yamaha kit for "in house". Cymbals are usually A Zildjian.

What's "best" is why we have so many drum companies.....

Re: "Pies"?

Re: Best deal you've ever scored on drum gear

I once bought an electric guitar for about $75. I then traded that guitar for a Ddrum Diatribe birch 22/10/12/16 with Iron Cobra doubles, a Pork Pie throne, and lots of decent hardware. Great gig...

Re: Out of Print Drum Books

I Live in south Louisiana where it's hot AND humid!

Re: Presents!

I got a 22" Sabian Artisan Medium.
It's a super sweet ride, and after having the artisan hats and crash, I had to have it. It really does compliment every cymbal I own, and ties together properties...

Re: Craviotto Worth The Money?

I'd agree with this and Bo 100%. You're going to be very limited on that kit and what you're going to do as far as sound. I agree with the mentality of using what you actually have, but only to an...
