    Rogers plagiarism (New Sound, Diamond)

    I've seen the old New Sound lugs before - from a distance they look just like Beavertail lugs and even have the same spacing which makes them somewhat interesting if you need many Beavertails for a cheap restoration. Now, I just bought this "Diamond" snare for a friend (he just wanted a cheap...

    Airto Moreira - The Spirit of Percussion - Anybody has it?

    I was looking for this book but there is pretty much nothing. Does anybody have it or know how it is? Mostly percussion or also drum set? By the way: Is there really no thread on him in the Drummers subforum?

    How about "Best threads" stickies as FAQs?

    With so many recurring questions and good information scattered across different threads, why not have a sticky in each section where we collect great threads for different topics to keep osbolete topics down? If this gets out of hand, hopefully someone will be nice enough to compile the...

    Practicing with a mirror

    This gets mentioned on here every now and then but I don't know if there is a dedicated thread to it. There is the 'useful gear that flies under the radar' thread on here and my tongue-in-cheek response was 'a mirror' because I rarely see them in practice rooms. Now I didn't begin with a mirror...

    Rogers Holiday restoration - looking for advice

    So I just bought a Rogers drum set from the sixties on ebay. I don't have the drums yet but they'll arrive in a couple of days at the rehearsal place. It's a complete set with a Dynasonic snare, pedal, hi hat and stands. The toms and bass are missing hoops on the resonant sides and the set is...

    Since I'm down to my last pair of the Joe Morello Sticks ( ) I was looking for an alternative and it seems like the new Matt Garstka stick is pretty much an 11A...
