Today’s 75 dollar find.

90’s (I think) Ludwig Black Galaxy Arcolite

No way! I just got a 90s Black Galaxy Acrolite too! I got it for free from this dude who was getting rid of some drum equipment. I promise I’m not trying to one up you. Just pointing out the weird coincidence that we each got such a good deal on the same item so closely in time.

Today I pulled the trigger on a pair of Sony MDR7506, I listen to music all the time at the job, I was fed up with my Lo-Fi pair. At home they will help me studying drum solos of songs were the drum recording is very low or when the engineer puts it far away in the background with not too much resolution.. So Instead of cranking my speakers to listen to a section 15 times in a row. :)

I figured it was time to get good headphones.

I had one similar pair in the past and they were very good headphones with more then enough RMS watts, clean and pure sound, no special filters. I hope these will be as good as my previous pair.

Can't wait to try them.

Can't say enough good things about these cans. Have had mine since 2014 and love them!

Nice car, I own a 2015. If you got 15 years, then that means I've got 10 left on mine? ;)

I feel like an adult - I got a 2018 Sport model - totally decked out with an 8 year bumper to bumper warranty as part of the certified pre-owned program. has around 30k miles.

You have a 2015 Explorer or Outback?

Great choice! I have an Outback with 70k original owner (me) miles. I plan on diving it until it dies, or I do. lol

My dream gear hauler is a Mercedes Metris cargo van.

We've had Subaru cars forever - my wife has a 2011 turbo forester and we had a WRX before that:

My Subaru pro-tip: See if you can find a solid Subaru ambassador mechanic locally. Keeps the repair costs down with the quality up. Mine ended up being a great friend and he took awesome care of our cars - above and beyond any dealer. He knew all the cool sources for turbos when they died and did neat upgrades like transmissions and all that fun stuff.

The Worst (best for me) Guitar Center in my area strikes again.

Today I walked in and once again they have a Ludwig drum priced incorrectly. Today it was a Ludwig Supraphonic LM402 listed as a 14” supralite.

Checked the store inventory on line and they don’t even list a Supra.

So essentially walked away with a 579 dollar drum for right around 200 bucks.

I already own a less than a year old LM402 so I’ll likely sell and make some profit.

I’ve had this snare (Tama hand-hammered brass, 14x5.5”) for a couple weeks now and my initial reactions are:
  • It’s heavy. 1.5mm thick shell with a well hidden seam.
  • It is not shrill, it has a low frequency punch to it, even when tuned high & tight.
  • It has a wide tuning range.
  • With 8 lugs and brass hoops it is very open, and has a long decay.
  • It’s the prettiest snare I’ve ever seen.
  • I bought it using points (that I didn’t know I had, so double-bonus).
