Good drum shops in the area? None come to mind - I usually grab whatever I can when I'm somewhere else. The closest for heads that I can think of is Sharon Music in Maidstone and they typically only sell Evans heads. Catford seems like your only option mate.

I phoned Elephant Music in Gravesend the other week. They didn't have a single solitary 20" kick head in stock. The guy told me that 22" is the norm! Guess I should have got a 22" kick instead!

God forbid I ever buy a 12" or 13" snare!!

Indeed we actually just have one real brass instrument: Trumpet.
The rest are woodwinds (clarinets, sax, flutes etc.).

Figuratively we consider ourselves as a brass band...like a "wind ensemble". :-)

Also, Karl, very neat instrumentation for a jazz band. You have no bass guitar? Just wind instruments? I like unusual instrumentation and it would be neat to hear such a band.

I used to listen to a sax group called Migraine that had no bass or drums - just four different size saxes and it was great.

It's actually just a white background I painted on there. It's a Radiohead logo, the cover of Amnesiac to be precise it's called the Minotaur. I want it as a tattoo something bad. Thanks. I'm not particularly good with art work, but the guitar turned out pretty well.

I have a few brick wall-type pictures in my past. They will never, ever see the light of day again, not with that site around.

Haha... =)
We are not a Jazz band at all. We cover all the songs we like and all the tunes which are playable. For example classics like "One moment in time", "Thank you for the music" or "King of the road" which would be swing.

Instead of a bass guitar player our leader plays a bariton saxophon. So we try to manage everything just with wind instruments...

Thanks!

Karl

Not at all what I pictured you looking like dude, we shaved bald drummers need to stick 2gether, LOL. That set Looks killer on stage, and tthe cymbal arrangement is really sweet, very cool.

I've been bald now about a year. I gotta say, it's very comfortable. In the winter I have to wear a cap to stay warm but other than that, I stay much cooler. Thanks for the props on the set - it's my pride and joy.

Do you have a photo showing your dome and/or set?

That's the reason they put him in the front.

Yes, those are the Vater "roots"...black plastic instead of wood. When I got those they really felt unusual. They`ve got a fatter sound than the wood ones...definitly worth a try.
