Re: Jeff Porcaro

The opening to Georgy Porgy at 10:38 is one of the best grooves ever.

Re: Yamaha Recording Custom 14X8 Snare drum

The shells haven't changed in 20+ years. What was true in the 1980s was true in the 1990s.

Re: Yamaha Recording Custom 14X8 Snare drum

It'll sit on a regular snare stand just fine. I think the original Yamaha 900 stands are sized (short) for this drum. The 8" has a taller, but essentially same strainer as Yamaha's piccolo snares...

Re: Kit Upgrade, Looking for Advice

I see the Ludwig Rockers set the OP is talking about. The seller has dropped the price to $800. It was a regular 5 pc Rockers set with power toms (2U/1D) and he moved the 13" tom to make it a floor...

Re: Kit Upgrade, Looking for Advice

One up, two down. One mounted tom and two floor toms. I've never been sold on this configuration and if I was buying long-term, I'd look for something with two mounted toms first, two floor toms...

Re: The being fired or quitting thread

You people haven't experienced enough gigging if you haven't been fired. I've been fired three times. One group fizzled out. One group I felt I wasn't a good fit even though they wanted me - I had...

Re: The power of nostalgia

I'm not really nostalgic for my old 1966 Slingerlands. The shells might be ok these days but the hardware was absolutely horrible. I'm not buying a set to collect, but to play. I'd completely...

Re: Anyone suggest good drum bags?

Kaces and H&B Tuxedo bags. Happy with both.

Re: Using Left Foot Hi-Hat, Does It Help Improve Time?

Groove or time? A pulse is not grooving so and it appears everyone here is talking about keeping time.

The short answer is no. I keep time internally. Every part of me keeps time. I really...

Re: comparing two new sets, Ludwig or DW?

I thought it was a typo too - a really bad typo because it was all over the GC site - but I checked DW's web site and DW makes a 23" bass drum.

Me, I'd take DW (with a 22" bass drum) all day...

Re: Can you practice buzz roll on a drumpad?

I can buzz/closed roll on just about any surface that offers rebound. I'm guessing you have an issue with your technique rather than the surface you're practicing on.

Re: Won Used Ludwig Classics off ebay

Clearly not a 22x18 bass drum either. Looks like a regular 22x14.

Re: Won Used Ludwig Classics off ebay

Based on the bass drum spurs and the badges, I'd say 1986 or so. My problem is I don't remember (and can't match up in any catalog) the combination of spurs, badges and mounts and I don't remember...

Re: What sticks to a snare drum? (Help stop my triggers from bouncing away)

No pictures from me because I don't trigger any longer. When I did, I triggered a snare drum only. Visualize this. Get a 4" strip of really sticky duct tape. Don't use crap. Place the pickup...

Re: What sticks to a snare drum? (Help stop my triggers from bouncing away)

Duct tape worked like a charm for me. I probably used a 4" length of it though. I kept my trigger near the edge of the drum and cranked up the sensitivity.

Re: ludwig swivel nut

Be careful removing the lugs. You can snap the fasteners off with ease trying to remove them.

Re: Identify this Ludwig kit

If I could see the bass drum spurs I'd have a better idea, but I'm guessing a late 70's Ludwig Big Beat. Worth double that amount, if not more.

Re: drum friends - help me out with this idea...

Remember, a waltz is a feel and not a time signature. You might want to reevaluate your thinking. I'd probably look at something with a heavy half-time with the back beat on 3 in the 3/4 measures...

Re: xylophone beginners questions

Don't sell it short. It actually has three keys. C, F and G. And 1.5 octaves.

Re: need help counting

I'm torn between 4-4-6-4 and 4-6-4-4. I doubt it matters either way because the phrasing breaks up nicely for either method of counting that section.

My sticks rest on the "butt crack" created by my knuckles.

Re: Looking for help choosing a pro level drum kit

I'd find a decent set of drums and some versatile cymbals and be done with it. Obviously you're at a point where you don't want to be using crap, but you also don't want an expensive set of drums at...
