Re: 30 songs in 6 days.

I always start with cheat sheets. Break each song down into its basic parts (verse, chorus, bridge, breakdown, intro, outro, whatever) and add any little details about fills, tempo changes, anything...

Re: Do you ever stand back from your drums...

I do it every morning. My white Ludwigs are set up right outside my bathroom, so after I shower and am flossing my teeth, I'll stand in front of the kit and admire it. Gives me something to do while...

Re: acrylic timbales?

I don't think there can really be such an animal. Most of the color or timbre of a timbale is due to the metal shell. I think an acrylic timbale would sound like a concert tom, not a timbale. Plus...

Re: The Renowns are getting that much closer!

Glad to see you are still around here, Kona. I don't see many posts from you. But then I don't get to post that much either these days.

The Purewoods pretty much stay at home for fear of...

Re: The Renowns are getting that much closer!

The stock Emad sounds great on my kick, but I have a 24" Purewood Mahogany, a little different animal.

Re: Rogers Big R, why the hate??

Yeah, a great player's kit for a great price. What's not to like about that?

I was a Rogers guy back in the day, had two Script/Swivomatic kits. I've alway personally preferred the look of the the...

You are going to love the look and sound of your Renowns.

Re: Remo Quaduro's - any information/advice?

There are a few people on the forum that like these drums. They just haven't chimed it yet.

I recently became a big fan of Remo drums when my bass player gave me an Acousticon 516 kit he had...

Re: Ludwig Restoration Advice Request

For tension rods, you can just use modern Gibraltar replacements. They're the same thread and look identical to the original. You can get replacement bass claws from Ludwig, but they don't look the...

Re: The Players-Tinkerers kit

That's a cool little kit, Bo. No non-drummers will even notice the hardware differences. I like the way the kick mount lets you use a cymbal arm.

I recently inherited a Remo Acousticon kit to use...

Re: Business cards.

Agreed. What else can you easily leave with someone that has all your info? All the social media sites are important, but you can't expect someone to write down the addresses for you. They might toss...

Re: Please help identify Premier snare

That is a cool looking snare. I dig the lugs and strainer. I've been thinking for a while now about picking up some Premiers. I need to learn more about them first. Nice score!

Re: Help I bought a cracked cymbal off ebay

Yes, if you get them involved. But that takes a bit of work and time. They always tell you to try and work it out directly with the seller first, before escalating it into ebay's court. So in my...

Re: Business cards.

Two points:

Definitely have a local printer print them. You can get full-bleed cards (like mine below) for dirt cheap prices. You'll spend MUCH more if you print them on your inkjet. Plus they...

Re: Help I bought a cracked cymbal off ebay

As Steve said, the last option is Paypal Buyer Protection. I haven't yet had to go there, but that guarantees you will get this settled. It's a total drag to deal with all this, but rest assured you...

Re: Help I bought a cracked cymbal off ebay

I've had this happen maybe 5 times over my years of buying on ebay, due to everything from honest ignorance to full-on deception on the part of the sellers.

First thing to do is write them (like...

Re: When does sound become music

I think sounds can be musical. But music is more than sounds. There needs to be some information, some organized content, and possibly (but not necessarily) a rhythm or repeating pattern. There has...

Re: My Camco Refurb with pix!

Great Caesar's Ghost! That is one of the most awesomely gorgeous kits I have ever seen. I'd kill for a Camco half as nice as that.

Re: Vintage Drum Bearing Edges

It's hard to tell from the closeup of the edge if the wrap is tucked into the lap joint. Does it appear to you that it is? That's the way Ludwig used to do it. But I thought they had stopped that...

Re: Check out my Remo Acousticons....

Re: Check out my Remo Acousticons....

Thanks for the tips. I'm going to try the coke and aluminum foil for the first time with these drums. I think I'm also going to borrow a grinder with a buffing wheel for the bad stuff.
