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

I stand corrected. Clear tubing is ideal. Forgot you'd need longer screws when adding more gasket.

And everyone bags on Ludwig for lug splay...geez :)

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

I would be inclined to add a rubber shim gasket of my own design before I would start dipping the hoops.

Small sheet of 1/4 rubberized material should do the trick. Pretty simple to use the mount...

Re: Anyone own of have experience with Atlas Mounting hardware?

Are you copying me LOL?

There is a range of lug holes Atlas will work with. Best to check measurements first on any kit that someone hasn't personally put them on. Tama for instance. I do know of...

Re: Anyone own of have experience with Atlas Mounting hardware?

The answer is yes. And there are some good threads on this too.

And the other answer is yes, do it. I would totally retrofit kits with them.

Re: Going to shows of a band you got rejected from a good idea?

This happened to me about 4 years ago in a side project. We played about 8 shows over the course of 3-4 months and everything was going great. One day I found out the singer wanted to bring in his...

Re: Funnest Gig you've ever played?

Too many to choose from. "Mantown" sticks out because of the crowd and the lingerie show that popped a few eyballs. Then there was New Years Eve 2007 where we played til 4 a.m. and stopped briefly...

Re: Ludwig Legacy Mahagony


Ludwig kit (probably not a press release) with DW hardware??

Who could be using or playing such a (prototype?) kit?

These would surpass my desire for CM and Legacy instantly. Mahogany...

Re: What a bummer :-(

I had a similar thing happen on an Ayotte tom. He listed it 10X8 and when I got it, I put it up to my existing 12X8 and was like...Uh Oh Spaghettios-10X9!

Seller was cool about the refund and I...

Re: SKF Blog: A Great Drum Photo is Still Worth 1,000 Words

I'm always amazed by Buddy's poor posture.

The ads that I loved were the 80's Ludwig and Sabian ads, sometimes with dozens of their respective artists in them. Often, you could get the poster for...

Re: The being fired or quitting thread

Having read through this, it seems getting 'fired' isn't such a bad thing. Let me briefly add my recent story.

Three years ago, I was approached by my ex-bass player to form a one-off benefit gig...

Re: Putting band name on kick drum head, with multiple bands?

I use DrumArt.com and you can get cling-ons that peel off. Never tried those but would be very easy to slap on.

I play in two bands but one plays only about 5 times a year. In those cases, I find...

Re: Incredible funk/fusion chops and licks in simple R&B Songs

I am a funky drummer trapped in a rock band. Here's what I do and my approach.

I will take songs like What I Got from Sublime and funk them up. BUT, not the whole time. I will build it in...

Re: Drumming without shoes - caution

Re: 2003 DW Collectors Series - Broken Glass finish

That's white marine pearl. And yes, the May is considered a value-added accessory. A pricey one for sure but a sweet set up if you gig regularly.

Oh, and ask for the date inside the shell. That...

Re: comparing two new sets, Ludwig or DW?

The only thing I don't like about you Ludwig spec is the lack of Atlas mounts. Seems like all the hardware is old-school, which is cool, but specing mounts might sway me towards the Luddies even...

Two things

A used Wuhan 18" china for $20. Sounds terrible. Perfect

Re: Cover Band Drummists - How accurate are you?

I would say I strive for about 70% accuracy. Get the tempo, beat(s), major fills, and it's good to go. There are very few songs we do that require exacting parts i.e. no Rush.

I learn about 4-5...
