    How Much Does a Yamaha 950 throne weigh?

    I use that Gibraltar model, it's pretty good, relatively light throne base, and good quality. I'd call it 7 on a Roc'n'Soc scale of 10.

    Drum case for 15x8" Field Drum

    The Ahead cases flex quite a bit. I have three drums that are 18“ depth, combined, in a 14/14 case.

    Drum case for 15x8" Field Drum

    Ahead's free floater case should do it at 17/7.75”. That snare mech doesn't look too greedy for space. If you're in the UK old fibre Spaulding Russell 16s are about 10” deep when closed. US equivalent probably old Ludwig hatbox style 16.

    Anyone Mounting Their Main Snare Off The Hihat? Pics Wanted.

    Nice gizmo, and could definitely be useful. Yamaha Crosstown snare stand would be lighter and easier to adjust tho.

    He said in an interview he had broken a 14” top and could only get a 13” replacement. He liked the way it worked and stuck with it.

    Practice options for travel and hotels?

    A 12“ pad, towel, and Futz pedals seems the most mobile solution. Lightweight snare stand is handy too if you have room for it. Emergency Moongel pad or brushes when the death threats become tedious.

    Question about 7s

    I'm sorry if my reply was 'opaque'. I meant it literally. As you pointed out, a seven note pattern is just that, whether it's played as tuplets or a meter. The clavés of seven are a good place to start, as you said, maybe with pickup notes on the 3s into the 2s also; these types of figures are...

    The best bass drum sound!

    There was a Sonor ad with that kit I think. If I remember correctly a double bass Rosewood Phonic with the reso heads taken off.

    Any famous songs with the snares disengaged?

    I heard that Roxy drummer Paul Thompson 'forgot' to put the snares back on after being asked to.
