Re: Ludwig Drum I.D.

Agreed, a greta buy, but a few driveway scratches won't matter anyway. It's a great sounding drum.

Re: Outdoor Shows - Head and Humidity

OK (minor thread derail) but beware the rampant myths on hydration, promoted by bottle companies and eschewed by medical researchers. No need to drink if you don't have thirst. Your kidneys do their...

Too bad to hear. I recently bought a 1971 Premier 2000 snare and am super impressed with its construction and sound. Have been showing more interest in this company since then and thought they were...

Re: Info on this vintage Sonor kit?

Ahem....looking forward to the video in your practice space.

Do we know if Purdie used his own Sonor kit on all those records, or a studio kit? Should be in his new book.

Re: Where's all the gear?

I think it is all a conspiracy. all old sets are being bought up and hidden by these companies. cymbals are bought and Bronze re melted.

Re: help me decide on vintage drums?

Ask why.

(1) Is it the mojo appeal, or (2) they suit your personality, or (3) do they have a sound you have in your head? If so, yes try them out.

Re: Blasphemy Snare

Well, it's not a "Slingerland' shell so no gods to be angered. It's a modern Stone Custom Shell.

But I agree, it's a modern build and you are spending the cash, so why not get some good modern...

You married his sister, or he married your sister? If the former, be delicate, if the latter, tell him to p*ss off and grow up.
