Re: Oh No, Not another Bearing Edge.

But Andy would be protected under "prior art" described below.

What I think will happen is that companies won't honor Andy's request, and they will call it whatever they want and pretend they did...

Re: The Snare Wires General Info Thread

This makes a ton of sense.

Here's the thing, there's no info on the variables when you purchase snare wires.

I have no idea the core diameter, coil density, wire material.. Heck with PureSound...

Re: Oh No, Not another Bearing Edge.

I am curious what the movers and shakers at ALL the big companies are going to do with this information.

I would love to be at every meeting where this info is first shown to the decision makers....

Re: Trying out the Dunnett R4-L strainer

If this actually works like you say, that's got Bo written all over it. That's his biggest complaint, the knob loosening.

Re: Oh No, Not another Bearing Edge.

That's my big complaint with playing other drummers kits, the drums are dead dead dead. Zero sustain.

Playing a kit that has nice long full sustain makes it easier for tom fills to really shine. ...

Re: Oh No, Not another Bearing Edge.

I think this is huge. There are not many new things that actually change things. RIMS mounts were the last real innovation I've witnessed. Maybe double pedals. But this is the Holy Grail, note...

Re: Oh No, Not another Bearing Edge.

Also it must be noted that you struck the drum with your fingy.

Had that hit been a sharp strike from a drumstick.....it could open up an Einstein-Rosen bridge, or wormhole to the layman.

Re: What do you put in your drum bag>

Yes, the Wumpus and all his littled assorted Wumpi did indeed make tracks. He basically surrendered to my unending persistence and agreed to my banishment terms. Too bad. I liked him. He was a worthy...

Re: Oh no! Not another new bearing edge :(

I actually thought that very thing Les. It would be too problematic. No, my next set will for sure be walnut drums with this edge. I got bit by the walnut tone and it's finally starting to fester....

Re: Oh no! Not another new bearing edge :(

I'm chuffed to bits. I'm freaking out here. I'm actually breathing into a paper bag because I'm hyperventilating. Build me a set of walnut steambents with this edge right away young man!

Re: Oh no! Not another new bearing edge :(

That is the worlds longest note from a 10 inch tom. It was easily 5 to 6 seconds long. From a 10 inch tom? That's insane!

This is gargantuan.

OK I'm imagining a set of walnut solid shells with...

Re: DW, the Scientology of drum companies?

Honestly, the whole "what brand of drums does drummer X play" is such a sidetrack to the main issue. I think that 85% of the chatter here is over gear. People think if they buy an expensive drum set...

Paiste's complexity isn't complex enough for me. The complexities it does have seem very close field that wouldn't be appreciated by anyone but the drummer. It's easy to tap into the complexity of a...

Re: Trying out the Dunnett R4-L strainer

The Dunnett doesn't hamper me much. It's a little heavy feeling, and the way it feels in my hand when I operate it could be much improved IMO...It swivels, giving you the option of your preferred...

Re: Trying out the Dunnett R4-L strainer

Any strainer that sticks needs lube, plain and simple. P-85's stick when the oil layer is gone.

I too dislike the mass of the latest crop of strainers. The Trick has a buttery smooth feel to...

You know, that did raise an eyebrow when I first read it. I thought, how in %&#@ did he figure that one out? I then assumed you had actually worked it out. What a dope I am. Nice one!

Re: What do you put in your drum bag>

I keep a handgun, a beat up picture of George Washington, the one pair of panties I got thrown at me, my most recent phone number, some Skoal, and a mini spitoon.

Re: Trying out the Dunnett R4-L strainer

Sorry man, but you know you want honest opinions more than cheerleading.

I like the P-85 ergonomics. The P-86 ergonomics are good too, but proprietary screws piss me off. I lost one on my first...

Fair enough Odd. I still think drummers have it the worst though. But you're right, everybody has some difficulty. It's just not the same playing someone else's stuff. Although I can't imagine it...

Re: Trying out the Dunnett R4-L strainer

I have a Dunnett on my 7" deep Guru. It's OK. It's not as ergonomic as I'd like because it swivels. It's fast enough.

Just yesterday, I took delivery of a new steambent birdseye maple snare drum...

Re: Playing Someone Else's Kit

I don't know that ANY other instrument players that can relate to a drummers plight. Borrowing any other instrument... besides drums...seems easy by comparison.

Guitars, basses, saxophones,...
