Re: Hihat Problem...

The top rod that the clutch attaches to has come unscrewed from the lower portion. Spin the rod, clutch, or top cymbal clockwise til the rod wants to stop.

Re: Other songs that sound like other songs

My band mashes all three of those songs together in a medley that ends with 3 of us singing the chorus of a different song, all at the same time.

Re: Upgrade From Yamaha DP... 60's Ludwig?

The short response:

1. Vintage 3plys will sound very much different, or should I say sound very much better. These drums will be warm, resonant, and project very well (fill the room with sound).

Re: Who uses Moongel?

I use them on the batter heads and leave them on. I do however cut them down to get the dampening I like, usually just reducing the initial "ping" sound. I''ve used as little as a quarter inch square.

Re: Using Left Foot Hi-Hat, Does It Help Improve Time?

Re: Cover Band Drummists - How accurate are you?

I absolutely concur here. I play in a primarily Funk cover band with no horns or keyboards, and we play a few of the songs mentioned by Bermuda in his posts.

Re: My First Ludwig Acrolite

You are correct on the 1993 intro. I mistakenly was dating the badge as it was started in the mid/late 80s on the Rocker series. There seem to be no credible records on the black/white badge serial...

Re: My First Ludwig Acrolite

Black and white badged drums are difficult to date precisely. Your snare is most likely is from the late 80's.
