Re: Recurring dream - drum related

Re: Leave Me Alone Please

Yeah, I do the same if possible. It's not easy to judge the sound of a set of drums, cymbals, whatever in a GC, without having someone else play them.

Re: The 4 Real Rudiments - Control Stroke, Upstroke, Taps, and Rebounds

The answer to the problem is probably practicing the release of the stick, from the catch.

If you perform a downstroke, you are then trying to catch the stick so you can play a "T" or a tap. So...

Re: Buddy Rich trap case

That is an amazing piece and story behind it.

Re: A great Craiglist steal?

If you are looking for poor-sounding beginner cymbals...the AAX 16 is the best of the lot by far and it's not worth very much.

A local music shop up this way, has a blue Crush Chameleon Bop Birch, also the Acrylic shells and the Chameleon Ash. The Chameleon Ash caught my eye. The bop kit is $419 and all three have been...

Re: DW Collectors Snare Suggestions?

I like the VLT shells for low-end punch. I've got a DW collectors 5x14 maple cherry and everything about it is superb. It's quite sensitive and is loud/cracks nicely...but maybe lacks in other areas...

Re: Negative Progress / Quitting

I have to agree with Larry there. It's one thing to play the drums with some anger and conviction such as that, in a deliberate way - but it's another to mentally approach drums with the outlook that...

Re: My First Ludwig Acrolite

I've heard this too...noticed the re-sale value for the 80's B/O badged ones to be much less and have heard they just don't sound the same as the 60's-70's, or the newer models. Any truth there,...

Re: My First Ludwig Acrolite

Thanks, yes the drums are Leedy&Ludwig mid 50's. There's a 13" shell that is missing a lug, but I don't like mounting the 2nd tom anyway. The 13" tom (mounted) is the mid-60s Ludwig w/ serial badge,...

Re: Negative Progress / Quitting

I agree with Swiss_matthias to a degree, the more you know, the more you realize you don't know...which can adjust the perspective of your own playing.

My advice is to eliminate as many...

To my knowledge, the blacrolite was introduced in 1993. The serial is 6216641.

Re: My First Ludwig Acrolite

Thanks for the responses, all. Yeah, this one's a keeper, especially for the $. Here's a pic with the badge. The owner said he bought it in the late 90's, and was used.
