This should be a fun night tomorrow. We are playing a show with one of my favorite bands, Big Business. I dig Cody' playing so it will be cool to check that out too. He will be laying it down on my kit.
Wow! Good eye, or eyes.. lol. So my snare is just a Ludwig LM402. I am just trying out those knurled nuts on the tension rods to try to keep the drum in tune during heavy hitting rimshots. I found the on ebay. Stinky as mentioned something about them being vintage Slingerland, however they looked pretty new. I just think someone found a source for ones that looked similar to vintage Slingerland. At any rate still too early to tell how well they work. After a song they have loosened up a little bit. However, the tension rod had not backed out as much as usual. So I guess we'll see tonight.Sweet looking kit. What snare is that you have with those washers on the tuning lugs?
Right on! It's funny how we associate the idea of something with a particular images. The credit goes to Ludwig on this one. They did a great job on the wrap. Initially I was a bit hesitant going VBOP because I had ordered them in Black Glass Glitter and was told about a week or so later that they could not do that finish at the time. A pattern finish was a little outside of my comfort zone, but I am glad it led me to where I ended up.When I think of Ludwig drums, your kit is what always comes to mind. Beautiful.
Bull - that Ludwig kit of your's is gorgeous! The wrap, the chrome quality, and the overall presentation of the kit is spot on. You should have a great time hearing your kit played in a pro venue. We must see some pics - and a video would be great.This should be a fun night tomorrow. We are playing a show with one of my favorite bands, Big Business.

Hahaha.. Cool man. Yeah, those bands are our partners in crime, lol. Small world. We have been going through bass players like Spinal Tap goes through drummers. Darren from Ancient Warlocks has come on board to play bass. We are going to try to focus more on writing new material now that Darren is up to speed on old stuff. I look forward to meeting you in person and checking out your band.Ah, now it's all coming together!
You guys played Paulapalooza this year. I didn't make it but I saw your set online and didn't realize it was you at the time. Guess I shoulda known with that kit! Haha, now I know!
Seems we run in the same circles with Sun Giants, Sky Penis, Greenriver Thrillers, Klaw, etc, so now that I know who you are, I'll have to get out and see you guys. My band is 29A. We haven't played a ton of shows yet but have been picking up more in recent months. We should set something up!
Cool, I'll have to check that one out. I haven't been to The Valley, so that would be awesome. I want to check out Skies Below, too. Been crossing paths with Tim S for a few years now so I'm overdue to see what his band is all about.With our luck, spontaneous combustion of bass players is a real possibility that we at IF live with. I will let you know if just such an event might happen.
Our next show is Sept 19th The Valley in Tacoma with Skies Below, Greenriver Thrillers and Granite Waves. That should be a fun show!
I hope to make it out to your show on the 24th. The Mix is a cool venue. We usually practice on Thursdays, but maybe I can race back from Tacoma that night. When are you playing that night? First, second, or third?
