Re: Applications for 13" tom

I am not partial to 13"s in a 5-piece or larger. My Yamaha set runs even sizes 8" to 16". My Ludwig 4-piece, however, is a 13/6/22, which sounds huge and round and great.

The church set which I...

Re: Anyone prefer standard depth?

Up until very recently, all of my snares were 5" but a recent reimagining of my sound led me to acquire a 6.5" deep Sledgehammer. It's not for loudness or not-loudness, but for, as Bermuda said, an...

Re: "Play something." What do you play?

I do a kick-snare one-two and put the sticks back down. I charge $25 per hour past that.

Re: Contemplating a brass-for-brass snare trade

I agree, and the only real reason I hopped on this trade so quickly is because I had two 5" deep metal snares and needed a 6.5" voice (at least I told myself I did). If my Sensitone had been the 6.5"...

Re: Contemplating a brass-for-brass snare trade

I've been re-embracing my lots-of-notes childhood. The Luddies will take center stage again ere long, no worries.

Re: Contemplating a brass-for-brass snare trade

Here's a couple of better pics... and now, for some dumb reason, I have the Ludwigs and the Yammies set up back-to-back... Don't judge me.

Re: The Supra returns ;)

A little OT, but yeah, they're all discontinued, to coincide with the departure of Sakae and the move to the Chinese factory.

Pulled the trigger on the trade. He loves the quick, snappy bark, I like the nice low slap... we're all winners!

Please excuse the horrible phone pic...

Re: The Supra returns ;)

I'll second the Sensitone -- they are really great drums. The fact that I'm thinking of trading mine out is no reflection on the quality of the instrument, especially for the price. If I had a 14" x...

Re: Contemplating a brass-for-brass snare trade

Pretty much confirmation... Unless the snare has been beat to hell (and I know this guy, I very much doubt it), it's probably done and won. Pics this afternoon. (And dang it, I just put the Ludwigs...

Contemplating a brass-for-brass snare trade

So I got a FB message from another drummer in-area who was looking for a snare to trade, and we've got a tentative deal (which I am free to back out of) to trade snares.

A little background: I...

Re: How Far for a Paid Gig will you travel?

So long as the cost of gas doesn't drive the paycheck into negative territory, I'm game. I did a two-hour drive up into the mountains a couple months ago for a winery party gig subbing for a band I'm...

Re: drum friends - help me out with this idea...

Depends on the feel of the music.I'd be writing a part based on what the rest of the band is doing. Instead of a waltz one-two-THREE, perhaps a one-TWO-three or a ONE-two-three. Or maybe the trick is...

Re: New to me Acrolite

The other great thing about the Acrolite is there's about a kajillion of them floating around out there, as they were sold for years and years (and may still be) as a school snare kit. So if you miss...

Once I was like you. Then I started hanging out with some great bass players who knew how to put some funk around two and four and four-on-the-floor. I watch ladies dance to that stuff. And I think...

Re: What drummers need for a gig

I have one of those little plastic storage boxes, about 5"x8"x5" with a latched top. In it I keep a roll of black gaffer tape, some sticky hand muffling material, a few spare drum keys, a phillips...

Re: The constantly changing drum room

But they look nice. I noticed you've got the Optimount on the rack tom instead of the ISS mount... good move.

Re: Cramped Drums on Tiny Stages

Get comfortable playing what you need to play on a 4-piece with two or three cymbals. No other way around it.

Re: Online shopping and research

Once I find the model number I use it and the brand name in Google Shopping. I tend to get outstanding results that way.
