Re: My new Gretsch drums

There really isn't anything vintage in terms of hardware. The bass drum spurs, floor tom legs and the tom mount and tom brackets are all the modern stuff. I always had trouble adjusting those rail...

Re: My new Gretsch drums

Yep. But I'm not sure for how long and it's not what people associate with him. Which was kind of my idea; more of an homage than a direct rip-off.

Re: Grip and finger length

I'm no teacher, but I feel like individual anatomy has to be a factor in things like grip. We just aren't all made exactly the same.

Re: Frustrated beginner...

Just one observation... that chart makes the drum part look more linear than it actually sounds to me.

Re: Gretsch USA Bop Kit Shootout - USA Custom / Broadkaster / Brooklyn

I get excited every time I get a notification that Drum Center of Porstmouth has posted a new video. I like how much effort is made to give us a solid comparison between the different drums, from...

Re: The worst drum /cymbal purchase you ever made

Big-time necropost here. But I'll play.

I bought a 20" Zildjian A Custom Ride cymbal about 10 years ago. It's got that godawful "brilliant" finish. I hate that cymbal. It sounds just okay. But I...

Re: Jazz band playing to a metronome

I mean I don't even think there's a way to be diplomatic about this. A metronome/click has no place in a bebop combo.

Re: For you drum re-storers/re-builders

Obviously this is down to personal preference, but having a vintage instrument with checked lacquer is a highly desirable thing to many people.

Re: Ludwig Classic Maple mounting questions

I own a set of classic maples (WMP, too) and I mount the rack tom to a cymbal stand via rim mount.

I really don't like the cymbal stand mount. I find it inconvenient to have to tether the...

Re: Well, that escalated quickly!

That is funny!

I shared this story before, but we had a similar situation at a gig we played at a county park. This really drunk, scantily-clad young lady just invited herself up on stage and...

Re: New Gretsch vs older Gretsch

I keep hearing this also, from people who would know and whom I trust. I just ordered a USA Custom set myself in the sizes you're talking about.

Re: INDe Drums now offering "wraps"

Josh is doing incredible things at INDe. After meeting him just one time, it was obvious to me that he is going to be very successful.

Re: Denting drumheads

When I first started playing, my friend (and I guess sort of my first teacher) told me, "Don't be afraid to hit the drums. You're not going to break them. Go ahead; try hitting the snare as hard as...

Re: My new Gretsch drums

Thanks, Larry!

I have Ludwig classic maple drums and I'm keeping them. They're all matching, but I play them as two separate, four-piece sets depending on the music and the room. I have 13/16/22...

Re: My new Gretsch drums

Haha. The black-dot heads on the monster set is definitely a thing. But the era of Tony's playing that inspired me the most was his mid-60's playing on those Blue Note dates and with Miles. So I'm...

Re: My new Gretsch drums

Thanks for all the love, everyone. I cannot wait. But at the same time, it's kind of fun having something to look forward to. Yes, there will be photos and videos when they finally arrive.

Re: My new Gretsch drums

Heh. My attempt to cleverly (?) encode this in a prior post seems to have failed, so I'll be explicit: Solid yellow gloss lacquer. My homage to my drumming hero.

I've wanted to own a set of these drums for a...

If you're comparing Adele's performance to Ace of Base, you may just want to bow out of this thread.
