Re: Help with choosing kit: Slingerland or Gretsch?

The current Slingys are EXPENSIVE and to me sound average. I've heard under $1000.00 currently available kits from Gretsch and PDP trhat sound better, and there are other brands as well that kick...

Re: Help an old man with his memory:-)

I think you're talking about the "North" brand. I don't know too much about them. but they often show up at the vintage drum shows and sometimes on eBay.

Re: 14 x 6.5 Black Beauty Brass on Brass

Those Diecast hoops make the drum even better. I have the smaller 5.5 version of the trum. I've had it since they came out and it's a fantastic drum. My bud has the 6.5 and it's killer. We both put...

Re: Back to using my Supra

Hi Mike,

Lately I've been switching between my Jazzfest or my Supra, both sixties, and both 14 x 5.25. If the room is small and really live the Jazzfest sounds great, with that woody tone. But if...

Re: It's sad, but I had to ask.

What the hell is a "Blast Beat" anyway. This 52 year old can't keep up with this lingo.

Re: Ringo Starr

Any doubts about Ringo's drumming, go listen to "I Feel Fine". Try to duplicate what he's doing on that latin beat, especially the right hand pattern on the bell while keeping the rest together, at...

Re: what is the point of endorsment?

There are no hard and fast rules, so I'll generalize here. If you are known successful drummer you will get a lot more freebies or cheapies (meaningfull discounts) depending of course of the company....

Re: 20" basses out of style?

One MAJOR exception : His right Kick was a 20, cut down to a 20 X 10! and the left was the then standard 22" X 14. Now go listen to his kick on the 1968 version of "Crossroads". That big kick sound...

Re: Beginner's Frustration

COUNT! 1-2-3-4 etc. 1+2+3+4+ 1+2+3+4+ etc. Count Out loud when you practice or just to yourself. Does your kit brain have a metronome built in? Use it or get a cheap drummers metronome and practice...

Re: Bass Drum sizes?

Depends on whose drum it is, what heads are in use. I have a '93 Luddy that's 22 x 14 and with the good Aquarians it's amazing. It's hard to have a general rule. I had PDP LXs and CXs for awhile and...

Re: Black Beauty untunable.

As for Musicians Friend... I bet if you call them, they will do right by you. Better yet, if you have your receipt, call Ludwig. Send it to them.

Re: Japanese Drums used in the sixties, who knew?

I remember seeing them live on "Shindig", I think ABC TV. Are there not any Tami Show videos of them live? Dave Clark owns a lot of that stuff.
