    Your least played snare(s)

    When I saw this thread I thought most of the responders would say the snare that came with the kit. Surprised to see so many "high-end"snares. For me it would be the Yamaha 5x14 8-lug Stage Custom Birch snare that came with the kit I bought new 10 years ago. P pulled it out a couple of weeks...

    too many cymbals?

    I always used hats, ride and two crashes. For the last month or so I lost the right side crash and i am using the ride as a crash/ride.

    Even those are tiny compared to these: Check out Buffin's sticks.

    show off your snare

    Early 60's Chrome-Over-Brass Gretsch 4160. Not all original ( P-85 throw-off), but it sounds fantastic. There must be a reason that they're still selling them today.

    About a month ago I got together with an old friend and a couple of his friends to jam. When I was packing up my stuff he brought in this old Gretsch 4160 and said that I could have it. It's from the early 60's with the smooth shell and the round badge. I think it originally came with the micro...

    Another John Bonham fill. On "Whole Lotta Love: When therr'e coming out of the guitar solo and back into the main riff. Those eighth notes on the snare always send a chill up (or down) my spine.

    Pearl P932 or used DW5000 or 9000 Double Pedal?

    I have both the P930 and the P932. They are both smooth and quick. (quicker than I am, at least), Not a lot of adjustments, but I'm happy with the spring tension and the pedal angle. Good solid pedal and definitely quieter than my old Speed King.

    Have you ever practiced dropping sticks?

    It happens to the best of drummers. Even the best of the best. Notice that he didn't get the right stick until the third time With my 20" bass drum I can place a stick between the shell and one of the tension rods with the butt end toward me. If I'm using the 22" bass, the stick slides...
