Re: Yamaha Drums

Very nice kit. I like black drums, I have some old Tour Customs they still look sweet. Great find. Also you really did need a 16 X 22 .

Re: replacing absolute birch with performer b/b.. Bad idea?

Re: Gurus played hard!

They sound real good. If I was playing them they wouldn't sound so good. You mentioned not getting credit. I think that type of thing goes on a lot. That's too bad. They are worth listing big time....

Re: Ludwig Snare Find....worth anything?

That shell looks like a quality shell from yesteryear, and the lugs are Ludwig.The throw off and badge look suspicious. I bet it's still worth 50 though.

Re: What's your latest purchase?

That's s good looking Ludwig kit. I haven't seen blue sparkle in a while. The blue is a much brighter, or something than the old blue sparkle, from the 70's. Very pretty.

Re: New Acrolite!

Very cool. That's pretty darned vintage. I had a 70's model in the 80's. I wish I'd kept it. I've been kind of thinking about getting another.

Re: What's your latest purchase?

I picked up this used 16" A the other day. It reminds me of a 16 Med thin that I had for more than 20 yr. I think that's why I bought it. It doesn't sound fantastic or anything, but it's so familiar...

Re: 8 years of professional teaching - time to give it away

I've always played totally lefty. Started in late 1969. I would be dismayed at any teacher that would not accommodate a left handed player. That in itself is totally unprofessional. It only takes a...

Re: Yamaha Drums

Man that kit looks pretty sweet. I've never heard the clubs in person, but I bet I'd like them. I think that's the best finish I've seen on those kits. Really nice.
