    Does buying pre owned bother you?

    In my opinion, buying used is a no brainer.

    Ludwig Vistalite Question

    Yes, I think 70’s Vistas have a distinct sound from their counterparts from the same era.

    Max Weinberg (Springsteen)?

    Probably due to my age, I first saw Max Weinberg as band leader on Conan when I was in high school. I instantly fell in love with his style. It was only in my 20's that I became a Springsteen fan. He seems so at ease and graceful. He makes everything he does look effortless.

    Who are the top three drummers you admire and why ?

    1) Max Weinberg- loved watching him on Conan growing up, and only later became a Springsteen fan. Something about the physical way he plays, he just looks so at ease and effortless. Graceful might be the word. 2) Ricky Mazzotta- not a famous drummer, but someone whom I've seen many times live...

    Ludwig Vistalite Question

    Hey guys, been a while since I posted, been focusing on some of my other hobbies lately. But I have a question about Ludwig Vistalites. Obviously, most Vistalites you see are clear/colored acrylic, but I see a few Vistalite kits here and there with white, black, or chrome wraps. My question: is...

    Trying to find a nice set!

    Look at Guitar Center's used section. Lots of decent kits for cheap.

    DW Frequent Flyer Kit

    I think the volume was down on my mixer because it’s kind of quiet, so you might need to crank up the volume. But otherwise I think this is a good example of how they sound.

    Did you ever do marching band/drum corps?

    Nope. I was a choir kid.

    DW Frequent Flyer Kit

    Yeah, I've been playing them for a few weeks now, and man they sound great. It's really everything I've been looking for in a kit, from sizes to finish (although, I won't rule out re-wrapping them in a different finish someday, probably something glittery). Toms: The only tom heads I had on...

    DW Frequent Flyer Kit

    Thanks! And yeah, I’ve had it since August and I’ve been pretty happy with it so far and haven’t had any issues. It’s all very simple, not a lot of bells and whistles. And like I said, it was a lot cheaper than a Kubota. I think it was around $25k total.

    DW Frequent Flyer Kit

    Oh, that makes sense. The engine is manufactured by Mahindra, as far as I can tell. Apparently Mahindra used to make tractors for International Harvester up until the late 80's, and they are still made the same way, and so the appeal is the simpler, old school build style and quality.

    DW Frequent Flyer Kit

    Hey while we are on the subject of tractors, let me share with you all what happened to me just yesterday. I am fine, and so is the tractor, the canopy is just a little bent. But I don't think it's a stretch to say that the canopy possibly saved my life. I had cut this limb, which was leaning...

    DW Frequent Flyer Kit

    I looked at Kubota, which is what I really wanted but they are awfully pricey, but then someone suggested Mahindra (which I had never actually heard of) and after talking to people and doing a lot of research, I couldn't find a single bad review and they were a good 10K cheaper. So all in all...

    It's beautiful. I'll see your mower and raise you a tractor. I just bought this Mahindra 4WD a few months ago.

    DW Frequent Flyer Kit

    Well, I can't speak for others, but I at least keep my anvil and forge out in my shed (no joke, my wife won't let me forge in the house, go figure🤷‍♂️). But in all seriousness, I prefer to try and fix things ("things" being everything from drum parts to pocket knives to my PS4 or other...
