    Rimshots: traditional grip vs. matched grip

    Interesting discourse here fellas. Appreciate it. Yeah, there are just some tones that I can't get at all. Roger Hawkins. I mean, listen to Land of a 1000 Dances, but now fast forward to Traffic - On the Road (Live). Obviously different tuning, dampening, but there are some choice tones...

    Rimshots: traditional grip vs. matched grip

    I have a hunch that there is just something different to the sound of a traditional grip rimshot vs. a matched rimshot, and why some of the old rock/session drummers of the 60s/70s sounded different than their counterparts. Roger Hawkins, Mitch Mitchell... Anyone ambidextrous enough to post up...

    Jeff Randall on Soundproofing a Room

    Watched the last video, pretty great: I've seen those Whisper Rooms for sale over the years but assumed they wouldn't have enough mass to handle drums. I do wish he'd give us a sample of what it sounded like inside, which to me would probably be very dull and muddy without any bass traps in the...

    New Ludwig Centennial Zep 4 piece shell pack in natural gloss

    Thanks. Was hoping for feedback from the "field" though.

    New Ludwig Centennial Zep 4 piece shell pack in natural gloss

    Yeah, I'm on the fence whether to get a 16 tom for my Pearl Session Studio Selects (have 13/18/24 right now), or sell them, and get something like this Zep configuration. Never played a 26.

    New Ludwig Centennial Zep 4 piece shell pack in natural gloss

    Wonder where they're cutting the corners... maple poplar maple, and then the hardware I'm guessing?

    Ah, oops, I thought you were the OP. Hard to find opinions on these.

    Swingstar by Tama snare?

    Saw this in a pawn shop for 40 bucks. Looked in mint shape. Didn’t snag it but should’ve… I’ve never seen a Swingstar by Tama badge, googles not showing much either. Was a 260xxx serial, made in Taiwan. What’s up with this?

    Looking for an L-Rod

    I bought this, a clamp-style cymbal arm that mounts to your bass drum. Works great, super solid, have a 24" heavy ping ride on my Session Select 24" bass drum. Only problem is, the L-rod is equal-sided in length, and it really needs to be shorter on the clamp side, because if you're clamping...

    Head Choices for a Damaged Bearing Edge

    With single ply head, it just takes an inordinate amount of tension rod cranking to get the wrinkle out where the bearing edge is damaged, so way way up on a floor tom. I can detune the other lugs, but only so far. It really needs to be addressed with a re-cut of the bearing edge. With an...

    Head Choices for a Damaged Bearing Edge

    I am, but I can afford a set of heads that I'll end up using anyways. Finding a competent drum restorer is another problem.

    Head Choices for a Damaged Bearing Edge

    Yeah, I have to crank up those two lugs to get the wrinkle out right now... I'm mad at myself for not checking before buying the drums, I know better.

    Head Choices for a Damaged Bearing Edge

    Currently sourcing a drum repair specialist to get the bearing edge re-cut, but in the meantime, I'm wondering if there are more forgiving heads out there than the usually Ambassador single ply coated heads I use. It's about 1/8" of an inch slanted gash. Evans Level 360, perhaps? Pinstripes...

    Premier Oval "lockfast" Tom Mounts with a Ludwig bass drum

    Yup, I need 2 x #390 arms and likely a Pearl double-tom holder or clamp plus post.

    Premier Oval "lockfast" Tom Mounts with a Ludwig bass drum

    Yeah, I'm fine with buying the 390 arms, I just don't know if the bottom half of the 390 would fit into something like this: I could probably find a straight rod that'll fit into the bass drum, and could get one of these, assuming these un-thread wide enough to receive the 390 arm:

    Premier Oval "lockfast" Tom Mounts with a Ludwig bass drum

    I keep forgetting to take pics when I'm there... It is this kit exactly with the double disappearing (#390) tom mounts; I have the disappearing dagger #390 mounts on the toms, but no #390 arms: https://paste.pics/19e923b95981f7c062fab46a26d73f15 And the Ludwig rocker bass drum has this diamond...

    Premier Oval "lockfast" Tom Mounts with a Ludwig bass drum

    If the Premier XPK - RokLok post had oval tom arms, it would be perfect. Wondering if a generic single round post to double arm would work, then just swap in oval arms, assuming they’d fit in a round fitting. Like old Pearl export tom mount maybe.
