Re: Who does this, really?

It takes me two minutes to unbag a four piece kit. I don't see what the big hassle is with using bags. Just my .02.

Re: When soundmen attack

Whenever I play a new venue, I'm prepared to swap out the reso if needed. I've learned to get a good sound with either reso head anyway.

Re: Great car for a drummer

The BMW 5 series cars have tons of room. I have an '84 528e, and a '92 525i. Bass drums, as long as they're not 18" deep, fit through the back doors. Trunks have tons of room.

Re: Ludwig P-85 rant

I know Ludwig updated their new (P33) butt plates, but there are a few flaws while doing so. They should have kept the mounting hole spacing the same, so that you could swap it out with the P32....

Re: Ludwig P-85 rant

I use a stubby screwdiver, as it is way easier to handle, and alot less likely to slip. I know this isn't the answer you want, just trying to help a bit.

Re: acrylic timbales?

I've made some timbales from spun-fiberglass Blaemire shells. This one pictured is a 3x12 original Blaemire cutoff piece. It definitely is more timbale sounding than concert tom sounding.

Re: Am I the only one here that hated the Kick Port?

Tried it on my 14x24 Blaemire bass drum, absolutely killed the sound. I ended up putting it on a reso head for a PDP kit that I picked up for my nephew, The previous owner had butchered the hole, and...

Re: I can't hear my bass drum when playing live

I always make sure that the guitarist's and bassist's amps are forward a bit, so that the speaker is slightly in front of my ear level. This always helps so that I can hear, and feel, my bass drum.

Re: DW Frequent Flyer Kit

Thanks for the write-up and review taiko. When I saw the kit at NAMM, I loved the sizes, and size of lugs they used. I have a similar sized Blaemire kit that I use for low-volume gigs/rehearsals....

Re: Paul Simon and Sting

I saw this show at the Forum in Los Angeles a couple weeks ago, and agree 100% with 8Mile. I've seen Vinnie with Sting several times before, but had never seen Paul Simon, or Oblon on drums. Very...

Re: JARRAH 14x6.5

Really nice drum! I used to own a Jarrah ply Brady snare, and it was hands down the best wood snare I ever owned. Of course, that's back when I used to play wooden drums. ;-p

Re: Big Ludwigs Incoming

You can try the (DW) method of venting the reso head. I picked up a 1/2" hole punch and add a few holes till it feels right. Two holes in the 20" head, and four holes in the 22" and 24" heads. You...

Re: Drummerworld NAMM 2014 meet up

This is a great idea. Ronn Dunnett shared a space with Crescent cymbals and Joyful Noise, seems to work out great for them.

BTW, had a great time at the show this year. Sorry I didn't meet up on...

Re: Big Ludwigs Incoming

If it is a Black Panther finish, try to take a peek underneath the wrap. Ludwig would sometimes wrap right over some of their slower selling Mod finishes, like Citrus Mod.

DW member "skitch" sells the retroplate.


Another option is to use the R4L that Ronn Dunnett sells. I have the regular R4 on a couple snares...

Re: $300 Black Beauty?

That's a P33 butt plate, which I don't know why they started using on newer Ludwig snares.
