Not sure what a picture of my drum set has to do with George passing away, but I'll see what I can do.

Re: Unanswered Threads

Couple of days ago I made an obit post about a drummer friend of mine who was an influential figure in the Pacific Northwest independent music scene and nobody said diddly.

I guess I'm not one of...

Re: Looking for a single mic to record covers at home

I use a pair of them in the "Recorderman" configuration.

Re: Gretsch Broadkasters Vintage Build; Floor Tom Legs Rattle Against Rezo Hoop

This, but I would suggest clear vinyl tubing, which would not be visible at all from more than 5' away. Just an inch on each leg.

Clear vinyl tubing has many uses around the vintage kit; I split...

Re: Dampening!!!!!!

When I bought my Slingerland kit, the bass drum came with an entire double bed sheet set, complete with pillow cases and one pillow.

They are of quite good quality, and I use them on my guest bed...

Re: Just a few thoughts...

As someone who was a guitar player for 30 years before taking up drums, I find this topic fascinating.

The association between brand and musician seems to be different for each instrument.

Re: Craigslist ads crack me up....

I have been the bass player in bands where we auditioned drummers who were well-versed in flashy fills, press rolls, etc. but who would slow the tempo by 10 BPM by the end of the song, come out of...

Re: Who does this, really?

I think I get where you're coming from on this.

If this particular set of drums got a small scuff or two, it wouldn't break your heart, and it's a pain to pack them up every time. More pain that...

Re: Why do listeners move on as they get older?

Interesting thread.

I think that for many people, and I am one, music is "the soundtrack of our lives."

As my life circumstances and outlook change, so does my preferred soundtrack. More jazz...

Re: Good and bad customer service.

What country is this to which you refer?

I live in the United States, specifically Northern California, and within 45 minutes' drive from me are San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose, and Sacramento.

In other words, you'd start a noise war against a teenager with a drumset.

Re: Free notation software...

I use Finale NotePad (http://www.finalemusic.com/products/finale-notepad/), which is also free.

It's not perfect, but I like it better than MuseScore. It can export MIDI files, so you are not tied...

Re: PSA - Lubricate your P85.

For the slidey bits, my preference is for a bit of white lithium grease applied with a toothpick.

And yes, the P-85 needs to stay lubed. A friend of mine was looking to replace the one on his...

Re: Ginger Baker Reacts to Passing of Jack Bruce

Yeah, I braced myself when I clicked on the topic.

Given Mr. Baker's reputation, it's almost like a Dickensian redemption.
