Re: When you're having a bad night...

I have always tried to treat every night like my worst critic was in the front row. But the longer you gig, the more nights in a row, you are bound to have "an I don't give a crap night". Then there...

Re: Laser Black: replicating an obscure finish?

It can be done, bring one drum to a good body shop or even a boat painter. A craft store like Micheals sell a wide variety of glitter, it may take a few try's to find the right size particles and the...

Re: Vintage Premier bargain

Love the catalog Harry, buy the drums, get the girls.

I just re-edged two vintage Premier kits. One had really crude router gouges, doesn't look like someone did it after the factory, the edges...

Re: Sting - Paris 1985 - Bring on the Night

I have "Dream of the Blue Turtle" Live on cassette, which includes Omar smoking the tune Bring On The Night. Some of the greatest playing ever on that recording. Yes I still listen to cassettes, I...

Re: Carter McLean does Dunnett Magnesium

And the stick drop at the end makes him human. Awesome playing, is this guy from Vancouver? Seeing as he is playing George Way and Dummit snares, the B.C. Stores push these lines a little harder...

It might be too loud for your big floppy ears little rabbit.

Re: Homemade Drum Shells ?

I vote for the PVC. I have heard of PVC snares, and the owner/builders absolutely rave about them.

Re: How does Gavin do this?

My favourite Letterman drummer moment was a long time ago, maybe 20 years? Gina Schock from the Go Go's was there and Anton said, hey why don't you sit in for a tune. Doesn't this happen as Dave is...

Re: Trying out the Dunnett R4-L strainer

The Trick is in my opinion the best made, smoothest throw on the market. The price though deters me 95% of the time. For $50 Canadian, the DW with the 3 way adjustable butt is the absolute best buy...

Re: Help me identify the wood species

Absolutely the wood on the budget kits is really tough to make look good. There is a reason why they wrap them to start with. Compact, you should take a drive to Century Mill Lumber in Stouffville....

Re: Ludwig Copper Phonic

Educated guess here that crush buys the exact same shell from the same supplier as these guys.

Re: Trying out the Dunnett R4-L strainer

REALLY?
I bought one Ronn throw off, it too needed two hands to engage the snares, brand new out of the package.
I will admit, better than any antique design Ludwig, but he charges full pop and...

Re: "Oh no - Not another new bearing edge!"

LMAO, sorry that was me.
And if you think Ronn would ask for your blessing, you must have a big firewall over there in England. The guys ego is legendary.

Re: Carbon fibre

I don't plan on repeating this build, I like building wood snares. My friend at MOJO drums is still making carbon fibre shells and snares. He is in Mississipi I think. His old partner originally...

Re: Carbon fibre

It is loud, similar to fibreglass, but has a deeper floor tom like undertone that you do not get with fibreglass. This drum has great snare response, no sympathetic buzz, plays really nice. I have...

Re: Wanting To Try To Setup A Ronnie Tutt Blue Sparkle Tribute Kit - HELP??

There are many small boutique custom builder guys like myself who could build that kit for you, and if not in a hurry could find everything used, probably era correct too. I am in Canada, so that is...

Re: Help me identify the wood species

Yes, more than likely. Judging by the big holes for the tom mounts, it is obviously a budget kit, so lots of filler wood. But looks better than most budget kit innards.

Carbon fibre

This snare will be heading to its new home, a recording studio in Nashville. Hopefully it will become a part of music history.

Re: Help me identify the wood species

Definitely not maple. I would say Birch with a 90% confidence.

Although to many people, it looks similar to maple and Poplar, Birch is has deep more pronounced fine grain which shows best in the...

Re: Anyone ever paint a cowbell? or strip one?

The coating you choose may also affect the sound to some degree, I would think so anyways. I have a very early LP. It is pre-logo and simply is stamped in capital letters LATIN PERCUSSION. Has a deep...

Re: Guru snare competition results!

Magenta should win something for bringing us folks in North America the term "Chuffed to bits"

I will now have to find the right occasion to slip that one in.
