Re: Drum setup

Ditto. I'd set the 14 inch tom aside and go 13/16/18 with a 24" kick.

The 6.5" snare will be more versatile than the 5" depth. I think you'll be glad you went with the 6.5" depth. You can...

Re: joyful noise owners?

I also own a 14 X 6-1/2" TKO. Worth every penny in my book. I hope to add a 14 X 6-1/2" Beacon Bronze as well as a 14 X 4" NOB standard issue someday.

Just be sure to audition them before...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

14-years old, but new to me. I recently purchased it from a guitarist's studio where it sat virtually untouched since 2000 on a drum kit. For all practical purposes it is like brand-new.

Re: Great car for a drummer

I've been running a 1995 Honda Odyssey (first generation) for almost 20 years now. 260,000 miles and still going strong. Not really fond of the whole mini-van image, but it's been a great vehicle. ...

Re: No love for 20" bassdrums?

I came to join the 20" club really late in the game. I've played a 22" and a 24" for decades--and still do. But a couple of years ago I added on a new 20" kick to my kit and I've got to admit I'm...

Re: Discouraging & deterring theft on gigs

One of the things that has been really helpful reducing the amount of trips to and from the van--and to reduce the risk of theft if the car is left unattended-- is having a MultiCart. Usually two...

Re: Ludwig-drum refurb. svc. offered?

If you can't get it serviced domestically I recommend contacting Steele Turkington of Kentville Drums. Master craftsman extraordinaire. Shipping may factor in since he's located in Australia.

Re: Solid shell snare?

Lots of options for wood snare drums, but going to throw out a different option if you wanted to have a single snare drum that could cover a lot of ground for you: a Ludwig 5 X 14" smooth bronze. ...

Re: Ready to buy new kit. Need advice.

Two inches of difference in depth on a 20 inch bass drum shell won't amount to much. My first preference would be 14 X 20", but really if you find a great kit at a great price point, there's nothing...
