Re: Ford Drums?

Let us know if you end up buying them. I imagine lots of forum members would love to hear an objective assessment.

Re: Ford Drums?

Thanks for the replies.

So, the general consensus so far is that their most outstanding feature is the price.

Any comments on sound or what would make someone want to pay that much for a custom...

Ford Drums?

Does anyone on this forum own a set (or snare) from Ford Drums? Or, have you played them.

I'm curious as to their sound, construction, unique qualities, etc., aside from what can be found on their...

Re: Confidence behind the kit.

What's dangerous?

This is a state of mind. And, it works.

BTW, "Asia/South Pacific". Are you close by?

Re: How long have you been playing?

About 26 years

Practice times have varied over the years from 5 hrs a day to, currently, about twice a week for about 1.5 hrs.




Wow! Hats off to you! That's dedication!

Re: Inappropriate drumming

Isn't this what Tony Williams did in his later solo efforts? And, isn't it the same reason Wallace Roney got fed up and left the group?

Re: Confidence behind the kit.

Back to the analogy with public speaking:

I've lived in Japan for about 9 years. There have been times that I've been forced to speak in front of an audience, in English, when I just knew that the...

Re: Scammer on eBay

Thanks for the heads up 75sling.

Most of the scams I've seen involve a stolen account with a message in the listing to contact by a given e-mail (not ebay message) before bidding. So, lots of...

Re: Snare made out of a wheel of a Ford automobile!

Creative recycling!

I imagine he could get materials cheaply if not for free considering the current market for US auto parts. I'd love to try one out.

Hmmm...what other cylindrical objects...

Re: Rebounding from dismissal

Anyone who has played for a while will have an experience like yours. As others have already said, I think you are better off finding some new musicians to play with. Yes, calmly asking "why?" and...

Re: getting rid of wash from cymbals

I've got a 22" Spizzichino that can get a bit washy at times if played at higher volumes. First, I tried experimenting with some thinner, lighter sticks (because I love the sound of this cymbal).

Re: Is there a difference betwen a Ghost note and a Grace note?

I would agree with half of this. I don't believe they're interchangeable. You may describe the softer note before the primary note in a flam as a grace note or possibly a ghost note, however, you...

Re: what snare is this

"Name that Snare"

Does it have any indication of the company, serial numbers, or anything written inside the shell?

What size is it?

Where did you find it?

How does it sound?

Re: Vaughncraft shells, opinions

When speaking of the drum as opposed to the material it's made of, it can be misleading to use the word "solid" to mean several forms of a shell, which is why the term "true solid" came about. A...

Re: Bill Stewart

I laughed when I read this one. I was wondering the same thing. He's quite good at grabbing it with his foot and pulling it back into place. He must just love the action on that stand. What is it...
