Re: Heel Spurs/Plantar Fasciitis?

My chiropractor would manipulate locked joints in the arches of both feet which were the cause of my intense heel pain. He also advocated regular stretching, both hammies and calves, but not the...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

So this is rather different for me. While I find many SJC Drums to be hideous, their barbershop wrapped finishes appeal to me. Sweetwater had a yellow tag sale for select drums so I took a chance on...

Re: Dw collectors purple heart

Congratulations. What a great sounding snare! Sounds very similar to my 45th anniversary DW snare. I attribute that sound that you love more to the construction methods and materials that DW employs...

Re: Pros and Cons of rack mount vs. snare stand mounted tom

While a snare stand will reduce resonance, it's rare that it's to the point of choking the drum, unless you've tightened the heck out of the arms that hold onto the drum. Often, snare stands dampen...

Re: Moving on

Be frank and avoid burning bridges if you can. On more than one occasion I've found myself playing in good situations with a former bandmember whom I played with in less than ideal conditions in...

Re: Trying to decide dilemma

I disagree that most brass snares are black but I digress. While a percentage of potential buyers may prefer a matching snare, few will pass on a sale because of the lack of one. Also you won't get...

Re: Being sensible and a Pearl SSC kit ;)

Re: Well this is humbling: Hit Like A Girl, Bonham edition

Turned out ok? Buddy was a deeply flawed human being. He was an egomaniac who treated people terribly. Not a nice guy so no, he didn't turn out ok. Amazing how we put people on a pedestal and...

Re: Favorite high end drum kit- model and brand?

Re: 8 lug snare drums. Thoughts?

My two favorite metal snares, a Joyful Noise brass TKO and Tama Star Reserve hammered copper, are both 8-Luggers. Theyíre very open, expreressive and resonant. With that said, I own terrific 10-lug...

Re: Favorite high end drum kit- model and brand?

I have owned several high end kits over the years and have finished my journey for the best drums to my ears (and eyes), settling on five kits. Guru and Tama Star do it for me. My Sonor Pro Lite...

Re: Need some help choosing a snare.

Being mostly uninformed of you preferences and needs, all we can really do is make general recommendations. Iím a Tama guy and praise the SLP lineup for value. Those drums are under your budget and...

Re: Dave Grohl and RUSH article.

Neil has earned the right to walk away. He's given us years of greatness. I hope he finds the privacy that he craves.

Re: Drum tuning Differences

For me, yes. For each drum I tune the reso to the shellís fundamental note and the batter a bit lower. Just how I roll. Works for me. Every kit I own has toms at least 2Ē in diameter apart from one...

Re: New Tama Star finish.

Dark green cordia. You can see how dark the finish is in shade lighting conditions in my ad in the classified section of this forum. You need very bright conditions for the beauty of the cordia to...

Re: New Tama Star finish.

My buddy agrees with you. He dislikes the finish. Thinks Iím nuts putting my Star bubinga up for sale so I can get this walnut one. All I can say is that this finish speaks to me and is worth letting...

Re: New Tama Star finish.

I fell for this finish the minute I set eyes on it. Took delivery on a kit last week (pics from the shop). The snare in particular sounds so good.

Re: Anyone ever use the Porters and Davies stuff?

I'll respectfully disagree with aspects of your post. I'm just a ham and egger drummer who plays bar gigs and occasional festival-level shows. My Porter and Davies BC2 system is superior to the...
