Re: Funnest Gig you've ever played?

We played a couple polar extreme shows as far as temp goes. One was in an uninsulated smallish garage that hosted a lot of underground shows. It was a good bit below freezing. There was a tiny...

Re: My floor tom may be out of round.

Got word today that Ludwig will build a new one for me and allow me to hold on to the odd one till the new one shows up. It's funny, but I have not bought a new kit since 1991, but if and when I...

Re: My floor tom may be out of round.

Thanks for the information. When I first received the drum and noticed this issue, I thought that it must have been a slight issue with the head. It seemed that the stock Ludwig head came on and...

My floor tom may be out of round.

So almost a year ago I got a set of New Ludwig Classic Maple drums. When I got them, I swapped out all the heads. The bottom head for my floor tom came off easy enough, but when I put the Remo...

Re: Heavy music, where did the ride go?

It sort of depends. I think for certain sub-genres, many drummers have gone down a similar popular path of ultra staccato blasts, and abrupt time changes and whatnot. Everything has its place, but...

Re: what are some great books about drummers you have read.

Ahhh... I knew I could depend on you guys. Thanks for some submissions. Stuck at a mall where books are a forgotten relic if a bygone era that has turned and left me standing here. This truly is a...

what are some great books about drummers you have read.

I am visiting family and about to head off to find something to keep me occupied.

When I searched, I got a lot of great recommendations about drum rudiments, patterns and whatnot, but little in...

Re: Got my 50th anniversary supra today!

Holy Cow! What a sharp looking drum man! That badge is super cool too. I think I like that over some of the other special Ludwig round/oval badges. Enjoy!

Re: Kinda miss those 80's kits!!

I recently dragged my beloved Tama Granstar kit out of all the soft cases for fun and at the request of a member here in the Tama appreciation thread. Just because it was a lot of work going up and...

Re: Anyone else dislike suspension mounts?

For me, I suppose it comes down to one part aesthetics, and one part functionality. I am not fond of a bunch of optional extra metal hanging around my drums. Granted, I have about one suspension...

Re: What's On Your Shopping List?

I would really like some new DW 5002TD pedals. Keeping eye out for another core-Bonham kit for the house. Till then, I am saving my pennies.

Re: Gretsch Catalina Maple vs Ludwig Classic Maple

I can't speak for the Gretch, but I have a fairly new set of Ludwig Classic Maples and love them. No words will substitute for hearing them in the flesh, but the first time I put sticks to my new...

Re: Great car for a drummer

Glad you are OK man.

I also have a 1994 Toyota extended cab 4x4. I love that thing. Even as a young kid, I always loved the way Toyotas looked and performed. I need to get a new canopy on it...

Re: How long do I have to wait?

Awesome! Congratulations! I did the same thing a few months back. I am so happy I got these big beautiful Ludwigs.

I waited just about six weeks exactly.

I can't figure out for the life of...

Re: When soundmen attack

Yeah Bull,

Our band plays similar situations and we have pretty much the same kit set up and tuning from what you describe. I play with an unported 26" bass drum. Half the time when we play...

Re: How sentimental are you about your drums?

Great posts guys.

OK, so here are the drums that I am most sentimental about. They are my ~1990 Tama Granstars. About 24 years old and they still sound great. I don't play a nine piece...

Re: Anyone suggest good drum bags?

I would speculate that the AAA bags are not available here in the states due to a cost vs. profit issue to get the large rigid bags over the big pond. A regular Protection Racket case folds and...

Re: First time in EIGHT years.. I have drums set up at my place.

Thanks for your input. I think that I will be picking up the 5002 TD4 in the near future. I am sure that I could work with the AD4, but for the time I played with both, the Turbo seemed very nice...

Re: First time in EIGHT years.. I have drums set up at my place.

I think I am leaning towards The TD4 over the AD4. I used to have the older single chain with base plate version of the Accelerators. I have DW 9002s on my Ludwig kit, but the more I play with the...
