    I thought there was NO way I could possibly relate to him, but I found some common ground after all.

    Looking for a long cowbell holder for mounting on the bass drum hoop

    It's not exactly cheap, and made for a mic, but can be used as a cowbell holder as well and will position it just about anywhere you want.

    What piece of gear has spoiled you?

    Yep, it was 84th & Frederick. And you're right, the other one was on F, not B. I completely forgot about ox45. Wasn't Jason also in it? Those were better days, that's for sure.

    What piece of gear has spoiled you?

    Yep, I too had many long conversations with John. That place is like a time warp; you think you've been there 1 hour and it turns out to have been 4. I figured you had to be talking about the 84th St. store when you mentioned Mars Music. I think JD's moved one last time after I had seem at the B...

    Yeah, I've been caught up in that "what not"................ thanks to you. :p 😁

    Time & threads

    It also seems that on many forums the person that gets all worked up about someone resurrecting an old thread is often the same person that tells someone to "use the search function" rather than address the question directly. Ironically, the search function is typically what causes a thread to...

    The "Golden Ratio" for Top/Bottom Hi Hats

    If DW was in the cymbal game, they'd be all over that. It does for room acoustics. Cymbal sound? probably not.

    Anything Ruin Music for You?

    The (not so) funny part is that if it was a popular enough song to be playing at a chain restaurant, your son probably already knew the lyrics.

    Snare drum question...

    This says the same thing, without the redundant "exact": Ok, now you're just baiting. :sneaky:

    That gig , ! Dvd . ..?

    Or $36, depending on which one you buy. $36 new from Rasputin Music or $90 from Amazon. Not sure if it justifies the cost for you, but the DVD contains both the 1989 and 1991 concerts: "This two-DVD set features Neil Peart, Dennis Chambers, Dave Weckl, Steve Gadd, Louie Bellson, Gregg...

    Converting 5 lug drum to 6 lug

    Question for those that play an “ergonomic” setup.

    On another forum there was a discussion about this and it shocked me to find out that there are some people that actually face the bass drum forward AND face forward themselves. It makes absolutely no sense to me, but apparently it's more common than I thought since there are bass drum pedals...

    Is a 24x16" bass drum that different than a 24x14" bass drum?

    The confusion here is that the green sparkle kit did have a 26"x14" but the Thermogloss Natural kit had a 15" deep 26" bass drum. Author Billy Harrington verified it by actually going to see the actual (Thermogloss) drum set that is now owned by Paul Thompson and wrote an article about it for...
