Re: SJC Drums and "The Profit" TV Show

Yeah, but for some people price isn't the most important factor in making a purchase decision.

Of course you can do better on price with a larger company. Economies of scale in raw materials...

Re: What's your favorite drum related thing?

Groupies.

If I had any groupies.

I wish there were groupies. If there were, that'd be my favorite drum-related thing, because I'd have gotten them through being a drummer.

Re: Rock Gigs Not Very Rock Anymore?

Yeah. It is. Yes, I think it's terrible that people are so jaded, addicted to their electronic communication devices, and have such short attention spans. But we're not going to change that. All we...

Re: Where is the "best kit" thread :)

The ease of (relatively) silent practicing and recording is why I'm getting an e-kit in a couple of weeks. I don't practice enough, and I don't have the gear or venue to record my acoustic drums, and...

Re: Which wood type to go with

No reason why it can't, IMO. It's used in guitars all the time.

Re: beginner learning new song, transcribe questions.

Learning to read music is, in my opinion, the thing that makes you a musician. Yes, there were and are many talented performers who lacked that skill, but that's not an excuse not to learn it. Good...

Re: My Ludwig collection

One that's set up properly. Both of yours are weirdly reversed. :-P

Seriously, I'd take the new-to-you one for a spin. I can't resist showing off new gear.

Re: Getting Gigs - Price Quotes

Re: Here's an idea!

The problem isn't that n00bs don't search (though that's certainly true). It's that the signal:noise ratio is completely f*ckin' ridiculous. I'd hate to be a n00b and try to glean any useful purchase...

Re: Incredible "policy" from Memphis Drum Shop

It has to do with distribution contracts.

On the scale at issue, nothing is sold factory-direct. There is a tiered distribution network of Manufacturer -> Distributor -> Retailer -> Consumer....

Re: What I need

I don't bother with the expensive drum-specific headphones. I use regular ol' earbuds under a set of shooting muffs. Works fine.
