    I have original music I made with "fake" drums...

    Actually good music for background. You've got talent with rough edges that I'm sure you'll work out as you move forward. First thing I'd work on is loop repetition. A dead giveaway it's not real musicians and makes it sound like something you'd hear on hold with your phone. Otherwise you're...

    Grams per inch

    An odd but interesting question. Kind of like I wonder about snare sizes. I mean a 5x14 equals 70 but it's NOT square inches and I don't think there's such a thing as round inches. But I do wonder how that 5x14 would compare sound wise to a 4.5x15 which equals 67.5. Would the 2.5 (inches)...

    John Good wants to make drums out of everything. Walnut shells are next, Really. The shells from walnuts. Corn cob staves. Grapevines, so as he says "It'll bring the song to life. Heard it through the grapevine."

    A new musical find!

    Not sure I can relate to the music. I do however enjoy the expansion of musical thought and innovative presentation. There is a chemistry and sincerity to what they do and I thank you for the opportunity to explore new music.

    Ajax by Boosey & Hawkes......

    Anyone of you play the snare drums they were making back in the 50s/60s? I've played B & H clarinets and they are high quality instruments, but don't know about the drums they made. I've heard they are as good as Premier, which I have played. Guy in town has an Ajax B & H birch snare drum for...
