Re: When soundmen attack

Re: When soundmen attack

I keep a ported reso head in my drum case, it normally wouldn't be a problem to swap it out. My problem with this scenario is that he treated me like I was an idiot. I've never had a "sound engineer"...

Re: Help id'ing 1970's Ludwig kit

Thank you!
The inlays are still there, just painted over. I may try to strip the paint later but for now I'm not too worried about it.

I got the paint off the inside of the 12" tom and the result was gorgeous. But it was A LOT of work. I was afraid of damaging the wood so I...

Re: Anyone on here watch The Voice?

I often find myself much more interested in his drumming than the singer performing. The whole band is very good.

Re: Anyone on here watch The Voice?

Apparently everyone else thought so too, she didn't advance.
That kind of music really isn't her style though.

Re: Anyone on here watch The Voice?

Kat and Cole are both very good! I usually don't watch singing competition shows, so I don't know how good the talent normally is. But there are quite a few people that have impressed me from what...

Re: It always amazes me when....

Yes I would. And I would ask him why he's playing the guitar, since David Gilmour played that solo.

Anyone on here watch The Voice?

A girl that I play with here in Louisville, KY is in the top 20. She's on Christina Aguilera's team and is performing tonight. Her name is Olivia Henken. Please check her out, she's a great singer!

Re: Gig/Venue Review....

Sounds like a nightmare. Personally I would never set foot in that place again, let alone play a gig for free.

Re: Ludwig Cavern Club- Bass drum head

Re: Help id'ing 1970's Ludwig kit

Update:

Badges have two pointed edges. No serial numbers on badges. Could this date them to an even earlier year? 1972?
Shells are 3-ply.

Bought some Motsenbockers today and will be trying to...
