Re: Big band Albums where you can hear the drums

My introduction to Buddy.

A musical revelation, nothing less.

Re: Weird perceptions

But what if you end up loving both sets of hats at the same time, and also hating both sets at the same time as well?

Better get yourself a few dozen pairs, then you'll always be sure to have the...

Re: A shame, but long rumoured :(

Not sure how to read this comment. Irony?

To quote with some slight modification:

One of the Premier drum manufacturers... some pretty bad management...

history repeating itself. Alas

Re: Do you keep your cardboard boxes?

Cardboard boxes: great for building forts and castles on the lawn in the summer! For the kids of course, not for me, honestly... :-)

Re: Seller's remorse

I think the old saying is more than applicable here:

"The grass is always greener on the other side."

Sounds like not only are you less than sure that the grass is in fact greener, but you're...

Re: Does anyone actually do gigs with large bass drums any more?

Yep, seemed like a good idea when I got one. So easy to move the bassdrum around but that benefit is quickly negated by the need to use a raiser in order for the beater to strike the head closer to...

Re: No Talent Hack, But Loving It....

Calm down Matador. There are no bulls to wrestle here, just a relaxed, friendly music forum.

Your point would be better made without the grandstanding and competitive challenges to other members....

Re: Seller's remorse

Thanks for the photo, Prydon.

Very nice kit. Timeless finish, classic "P" badge, classic one-piece Premier lugs. And of course, those Resonator shells. A piece of drum history.

I think you may...

Re: Does anyone actually do gigs with large bass drums any more?

To be honest, I'd be surprised if any new and aspiring drummer thinks at all about the issue of hauling gear. I cetainly didn't. I was just completely enamoured with drums and their sound, that's the...

Re: Problem with Drum Student

Larry puts into words what I could not:

Everyone needs their own space. That's what I was trying to write when I referred to a person's individuality, even a child has that.

Many people are not...

Re: My Ludwig Classic Maple Set Has Arrived

Wow, that kit is absolutely gorgeous!

At the risk of sounding both sleazy and weird...I think I just got a hard on!

I would be more than happy to have that as my final and only kit for the rest...

Re: Seller's remorse

I second the idea of just buying perhaps a new snare, a cymbal, or maybe just some accessories. It's amazing what only one or two new items can bring to an older kit. A new snare takes up much less...

Re: Worst Badge in the Business

Perhaps a terrible badge is part of the secret formula for success in drum making?

After all, I can think of at least one company that had classy badges and dissapeared:...

Re: Love this Blue Gretsch Catalina

The finish looks classy enough but how much is that due to the lighting in the video?

I like my chocolate-white Catalina finish very much. Sort of cream-pearl, but wihout the pearl.

Re: Nicko McBrains Drum shop

Good luck to him, he'll need it. Too many music shops gone under in the last few years. Johnny Roadhouse's drum section a pale shadow of it's former glory (if it exists at all).

I hope Nicko...

How true.

Let's get one thing straight: a ten year old girl is a child.

There are some things a child just has to learn, but beyond that it's not good to impose something upon them they neither...

Hi Matt,

perhaps a coincidence, perhaps not, but Vic Firth 5A is more or less the limit for me in terms of stick weight, length, thickness. When I was younger and playing more regularly I...
