    Bright vs. Dark cymbals

    For rock, go bright. For everything else...what does it matter?

    Decent Used Drums for around $600-$800

    20 years of happiness is a tall order. Just ask my ex-wives. But, IMO, ease of setup, portability, and looks mean more to me than brand. With the right heads and tuning they can all sound pretty good.

    I know I'm getting old when I can't get through "Wipeout" without dropping the sticks or just collapsing on the floor. It's my benchmark or at least it used to be.

    Yep, drummers can keep time, but we can't stop it. I feel your pain...but Happy Birthday?

    A little swung sunshine

    I liked it! I especially liked the way you stayed in the pocket. It just moved.

    Ludwig Classic maple "Hepcat"

    I swear I don't get it??? What does this set bring to anyone's drumming? To me, the price seems ridiculous. Heads, tuning, style, and cymbals all mean a hell of a lot more. All of these inflated drum set prices have gone stupid silly! They do look nice, but I'd sweat bullets loading and...

    Danny Seraphine

    I saw him with Chicago at Indiana University right after they'd released "Chicago", 1970ish? As a drummer, I was awed. The entire group was fantastic. They were all amazingly talented but without him, Chicago could never be the same.

    Pricing A 65ish Ludwig Kit?

    Pricing A 65ish Ludwig Kit?

    EVERYTHING is original even the heads. The high hats are 15 inch Ludwigs made by Paiste. Can anybody tell me about them? Especially what are they worth? I'm thinking of making her an offer, OR should I tell her to keep the set all original equipment in order to sell. She also has a Zildjian A...

    NEED ADVICE... 1965ish LUDWIG PAISTE HIGH HATs

    So my sister has a 1965 ish Ludwig Champagne Sparkle kit. Same as the one M. Shrieve (sp?) played at Woodstock. EVERYTHING is original even the heads. I had a thread to evaluate the drums, but not the cymbals. The high hats are 15 inch Ludwigs made by Paiste. Can anybody tell me about them...
