    Scored a 20 year old cherry for my birthday!

    You sick bastages, it's a snare drum! Picked up this 5.5" x 14" 2000 DW/Craviotto (signed) Cherry steam bent snare just in time to debut at Saturday's gig. Got a great deal on this clean drum and can't wait to test drive.

    Drum Cave spring cleaning

    Spent the day cleaning up the drum cave. The winter was spent building the Stainless BOP kit and pretty much turned the room into a Tool/Parts/Cleaning debris field. Hung some more high density foam around the room for more acoustic damping/noise reduction. Tomorrow we rock!

I was wrapped up in my own "problems" , which in the grand scheme of things were far less than many others have. Larry's...

    Gretsch Free Floating Brothers

    I have been using the 5.5x10 as my "acoustic" small set-up snare for a couple of years and just loved everything it does, so when I got the opportunity to pick -up the 5.5x14 version, I didn't hesitate. These Gretsch/Kaman/Legend free-floating snares are no longer made, and you don't see them...

    Built a Grail kit on a budget

    A 3.5 year odyssey is complete... At least my wife thinks so. I set out to build a complete professional kit on a budget, the goal being to spend 50% of the lowest actual selling price (new) when all the components were added up. In the end I came out spending 53%, or $2820, for a turn key kit...

    Brothers from different Mothers

    I culled the herd by selling my Yamaha SCs and Concepts Maples, then turned around and purchased the DW. Here is a shot of both set up before one of them gets packed up and my basement turns into a debris field of splintered sticks and a pile of bagged drums and hardware dumped hastily, post-gig.
