    Copper Hoops

    Yes, as an answer to 2+ year old post, they hold up..... I have a Copperphonic with the Ludwig plated die cast, and I have a 402 with aftermarket plated Ludwig triple flange. Both hold up beautifully to normal practice and gigging use.

    I find the category "Ladies" to be quite insensitive. Can Drummerworld do a better job of giving female drummers the credit that they deserve?

    Why has no one has mentioned being offended by the annual "Hit like a girl" Site/Contest, that's been running for over a decade????

    I find that the longer I live (now almost 59), the less I care about being "insensitive". Just being honest here.

    Did you ever ignore one of your kits only to ask "what was I thinking"?

    I rotate between 3 very different kits, depending on venue/gig. A Stainless kit, a vintage 3ply Mahogany, and a modern Maple. If I haven't played one in a while, I am always pleasantly reminded why I bought/love that kit.

    Advice sought - loose air grommets on Yamaha BCA’s…

    I think the bolt is the safest option of all. If you go slowly and carefully, you can mitigate the possibility of cracking the lacquer. An 1/8 of a turn, loosen, check. Repeat.... Only other option I would think, but comes with more risk as well, is: Remove the lugs on either side of the...
