    House kits

    At the Amelia Island Jazz Festival this year, the back line kit was supplied my Les DeMerle, a long time jazz drummer. Nice silver sparkle Craviotto. I watched the drummer for the Tierney Sutton Band just smile as he sat at the kit and adjusted his cymbals and pedals.

    So, You Think You Are Too Old To Play Drums??

    Yes. He’s really great. I love it when he sometimes comes to my house for a lesson and the neighbors mention that my playing has really improved. I’ll tell him about the Drummers Collective lessons.

    So, You Think You Are Too Old To Play Drums??

    72 yo here. Just play at home. Been playing on and off since teen years. Taking weekly lessons now, though, with a 75 yo professional who is a big band/ fusion drummer Les DeMerle. He founded and runs the Amelia Island Jazz Festival. Great fun and challenge.

    Sound proofing; new construction

    Piano will not move. It is a Schimmel upright. I’ll check out the book. Lots of good information to discuss with the architect.

    Sound proofing; new construction

    Thanks for all the great detailed information. I don’t think a basement is viable as I am in a beach area. I guess I should put the room on the first floor.

    Perhaps I should have said mitigation. I haven’t dealt with an architect yet. Meeting next week.

    Sound proofing; new construction

    I’m starting the process of building a new home. My concept is to have an upstairs room with piano and acoustic drums. I would appreciate suggestions as to how best sound proof the room as well as design parameters and details.

    The more I know, the more I don’t know

    So, as I try to understand and accomplish more, I just realize how little I know about drumming. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been doing this my whole life. Not as a profession but a hobby. Now that I have retired, I have focused. It’s intimidating. I’m not bad and am taking lessons from a...

    Private collection maple Craviotto snare 14/5.5

    Thanks, Chris. The Radio Kings sound a little too hit or miss for me. I understand people's feelings towards expensive drums. I had a no name brand in my teens and twenties and Pearl Exports though my late fifties and sixties. Always wanted what I really wanted. As a kid, it was Ludwig...
