    What's your latest purchase?

    I hadn't intended on buying this. My wife saw it advertised somewhere and, considering the sizes, I thought about buying it for my 9 year old grandson. After closer inspection, I think I'll give it a trian run at a gig or two just to see how it is. The grandson may have to wait for a while.

    My wife saw this on facebook and thought it was a toy drum kit as it was a small sized (12-13-14-18 and a 13 snare). She thought it would be good for our 9 year old grandson. Turns out it is a Ludwig Accent CS Combo with Zildjain ZBT cymbals and Ludwig double braced hardware. It is in...

    What got you started playing drums?

    I've not posted this story here but I have in other places. When I was in Jr. high school (yes I know, dinosaurs had just become extinct), My incoming band director, Mr. Wixom, wanted to start a stage band. I had never heard of a stage band. Our school didn't have a drum set so he decided...

    Ludwig Ghost

    Beater is not original. Don't know what the spring is. I have 5 including one I bought in 1973. Biggest downfall is that it is hard to attach to BD but I solved that problem by making a metal plate for it to sit on.

    Ignacio Berroa

    I just attended a cllinic given by Ignacio Berroa. Quite a "tasty" drummer. The clinic was very informative and educational. He is quite a personable guy, too. Oh, and I bought a new 21" Sabian Raw Bell ride. Sweet.

    Resurrecting a Ghost...

    ...pedal, that is. I have owned a Ghost BD pedal for 35 years and I have always thought it had a great feel and action. I like the compression spring tension. But, it has some design flaws. It is a pain in the @$$ to set up and I have thought that for 35 years. You have to stand on your head to...

    Which way does it go together?

    All right, I need to hear from some of you drum builders out there. The leg mounts on a FT usually have the wing nut on the side. If you put them on randomly it’s easy to get two wing nuts facing one way and the other facing the other way, clockwise and counter clockwise as you look down on...
