Re: Musical Instrument Museum - Drums of the World

Re: A Round Table of Greats

Nothings changed, there's people who have and can play in time and there's others who struggle with it. The drummer's job (if there is one) really is babysitter, its to read those inconsistencies...

Re: anybody know whats going on with Vaughncraft?

All finished shells, as in 'ready to sell/play'.

The VC's in the pics are raw shells that still need to be finished.

Re: Harvard study of time keeping and groove

Isaac Newton did curiosity research, unfortunately now days, all research takes $.

Re: Giving bandmates rides to gigs!

This all depends on you.

The simple answer is ask for compensation. If person doesn't have a vehicle its not your fault. What ppl do on their own time is their choice. The reality is it costs $...

Re: Harvard study of time keeping and groove

I agree with PICODON on this.

Its not the point of the research, but its the results, should they at all prove anything workable that will be be exploited for profit. Who wouldn't want to buy the...

Re: anybody know whats going on with Vaughncraft?

So where is it when the builder says in response "The shells are fine." ?

If the drums go out, the builder must be OK with them. Is it that the customer(s) are just not (as) familiar with the...

Re: anyone have an older stage custom with a rattle?

If the third hole in your TH945B Double Tom Holder isn't tight, it could be rattling. That's why they (should) supply you with that plastic plug.

Re: Hand Care

Like guitar players, callouses on drummers hands/fingers are a by product of playing. Learn to manage them if you can't manage your technique. Higher volume playing means the stick is subject to more...

Re: Joe Morello on Buddy Rich Part 3
