    Sabian AAX Concept Crash Cymbal - 17 inch - Sweetwater Exclusive

    Pretty good deal at Sweetwater for $110. I bought the same cymbal in 2018 from Cymbal Fusion and have used it consistently as my primary go-to crash for pop-blues-jazz. This cymbal opens quickly, and is a bit darker but more complex than the usual AAX crashes...

    Dave Brubeck - Take Five / Drum solo transcription

    One of my favorite drummer's (Joe Morello) solo on a favorite song (Take 5), transcribed (and shown visually on sheet music) while being played by an excellent drummer on a jazz drum set.

    Phil Rudd explained by Malcolm Young in old interview

    Interview is from around 2000/20001. Interesting to hear MY explain how integral Phil Rudd was to creating "their sound" vs. the other drummers that had played with AC/DC. That his style swings more and the others were "stiffer." Quite the compliments and endorsement that PR was "It" and they...

    Just uploaded last week by Chick Corea. Fascinating background story about a cymbal that Roy Haynes gave Chick. He thinks Sabian is making a clone of this cymbal, to be called, "Royalty."

    Always enjoy getting that behind the scenes, close up view of the legends drumming away live or in soundcheck. Instructive as well. This fun little 5 minute video gives a good glimpse of DG's gear, how he has it all positioned, some of his technique, styles and sounds.

    No Nuts?

    Anyone tried these cymbal sleeves yet? They look like they'd get the job done well sonically, replace the usual cymbal stand accessories, and simplify setup/break down. (OK, let the jokes fly if necessary. I didn't name them!;))

    Anyone used(d) Stick Gripps?

    I checked out some sticks at GC the other day that had these gripps on them and was pleasantly surprised how comfortable they felt. I don't know if they might be a bit tough to use on sticks for a complete gig, but in the store they seemed non- chaffing. I've found for the past few years that...
