    How to manage a band?

    When my guitar player is in Aruba on vacation, do i send him a ticket to come back and play a gig? The band lets each other know our vacations at the start of the year, you make it sound like you dont consider anyone but yourself. We gig a lot, tonight and tomorrow ( probably while your sitting...

    Drum head thrift and guilt

    Just replaced my worn snare batter last night. The only reason was that the coating is too smooth now for any brush work. I will say, i keep my old heads and i guess maybe treat them with dignity. I put them in the box from the new head and keep them around as spares ( which I never use) but I...

    How to manage a band?

    Not a bad idea to get better organized. We always g ver the gigs as they come in and put them in our phone calendars ( which are not shared.) This almost backfired for the first time 2 weeks ago so i can see a need for something better. My band was playing at a gig on a Friday and just before a...

    You and ascunda should start a "show off your Ludwig Standards" thread! Nice kit.

    Ludwig Standard Kit

    Around here the prices for a 5 pc are in the 1200 and up range, 5 years ago they were like 300-500. I think people are starting to realize what they are. Until i played a set, I never even heard of the Standards. Great drums, without a doubt.

    Ludwig Standard Kit

    they had cheaper lugs and hardware. the tom mount on the bass drum was like a thin rolled pipe. very cheap. However the sound is killer, i was able to rehearse on a set, same color as the OP, and even with bad heads it was a great sounding kit. In recent years, the value has climbed on these kits.

    What's your plans with your current DW drums?

    Are DW drums limited in their range? It seems lie a lot of DW owners have multiple snares and kits. I dont really get it. IF I cant get it done with my supraphonc snare, its really me not the drum. I have a Pearl and Ludwig kit. not multiple pearl or multiple Ludwig kits, and i inherited the...

    Red Alert deal for anyone near Connecticut

    Damn if I saw it I would have grabbed it, i live about 35 min from there. wired that someone would take the time to get the brand name correct and have the price be so far off. Usually the deals like that are for Remo Weather king drums or something.

    Getting closer to gigging!

    you guys play it with a nice rock edge for sure, if you baby that song it will sound weak and most bands do just that. Good luck at the upcoming festival, its about damn time!!!!!

    Getting closer to gigging!

    Its easy to make that song suck as most bands play it poorly. That and Message in a Bottle by the Police ( please dont play that unless you really are the Police). Great job as always though. I think the key here is you guy really drive the song strongly and keeps it grooving.

    Hardware Pack recommdations

    The Yamaha 700 for sure if you are gigging a lot the savings on weight is another plus. The cymbal stand all have the hidden boom arm which is always handy too. The pedal is decent, single chain drive, smooth and responsive.

    Atlas mounts?

    i just recently bought an atlas mount and a short arm to mount my ride cymbal on my bass drum. total game changer, 1 less stand and no issues with stability. My old guitar player had a ludwig kit and bought the atlas arch mount for the tom. That thing is really heavy and actually tipped the bass...

    Which forums have you stopped visiting/contributing?

    Grunt and Andy were both well liked members and friends to many of us here before they were Mods so they really are "one of us". Its just a friendly acknowledgement to give likes to them and receive from them. There is zero to gain in any of this.

    Drum angle

    I still have yet to see a band play where the drummer has his bass facing to the side. Always straight on from the stage.
