    Muffling a 20" x 16" bassdrum

    What playing environment/style are you wortking in? I ask this because another great player who used a 20x16 was Mel Lewis with his big band.

    Hierarchy at various manufacturers?

    They are expensive. Are they overpriced? That depends on your own definition of overpriced, and how you determine it.

    What are you listening to right now?

    A vintage K.C. concert. It's cool to see Robert getting down during his solo in the first ten minutes of this show...

    "Prosumer" in Yamaha I'd say Tour Custom. Those are some nice drums. Sonor lists SQ2 as their flagship in the new online catalog then continues on with their current lines.

    Bad Drum Photography

    At first I thought thought this was a picture of someone's recyclables to be picked up at the end of their driveway. It's a current advertisement for a Drum set.

    Rick Beato: Modern Music's Death by Auto-Tune

    Thank goodness it's not all doom and gloom. As long as there is an appetite to hear acoustic drums they won't be replaced by a laptop. Unless a marching band on parade has some really long extension cords, or an acoustic jazz trio wants to feature someone with amazing real-time typing skills?

    Do You Feel a Need for Everything to Match?

    My cymbals are all the same brand-Paiste, drums are the same- Sonor , hardware is a combination of Yamaha and Sonor. Snare drums are various brands. Cases I switched to protection racket AAA a few years ago. Harder to find those in the states since U.K. shutdown though.

    Which Tom?

    My drum heads are so old that if I use that Tom Jones photo, the teeth are black and his hair is white.
