Re: Shoes with Elastic Bands: Yes or No?

The best thing about them is that the mesh uppers let air circulate while my feet are moving. I don't wind up with wet feet while I play. I also can wash the shoes in the machine so I don't get the...

Re: Shoes with Elastic Bands: Yes or No?

I most often wear water shoes when I play. They fit snug and they are light. They are inexpensive so I go through several pairs a year. I am the only one that I know who wears them though. Most of...

Re: Questions about kick drum heads

I did some measuring and I suggest making the head graphic 3/8" smaller than the drum diameter. Most modern drums are about 1/4" undersized. That would allow a 1/8" fudge factor.
A thin frame of...

Re: Hi hats and air lock, no luck.

It has never happened to me and I am puzzled as to how it could happen with holes in the bottom cymbal. I don't have holes in any of my hats.

Re: Classic Maple Bearing Edges

I never tried wooden hoops on a 3 ply Ludwig Super Classic. I had them on a sharp edge Mapex Saturn kit for a while but I moved away from them.
On my 60's Ludwig 3 ply kit I decided that I prefer...

Re: Classic Maple Bearing Edges

Im surprised that deltdrum finds vintage drums hard to tune. I don't find vintage drums hard to tune. I find that they have different sweet spots that are unique to each manufacturers drums. ...

Re: Classic Maple Bearing Edges

Tommy_D, if deltdrum buys a new Ludwig Classic Maple kit and alters the edges the value of the kit will be lowered just as if he built a custom made kit.
That was my logic.
Buying a used Ludwig...

Re: Classic Maple Bearing Edges

You could also buy unfinished maple shells and have them machined with rounded edges.
You could then finish the shells and add hardware as you desire.
That would cost about the same as a new...

Re: Classic Maple Bearing Edges

Just buy a new Ludwig ClubDate SE kit.
The 6 ply shells have round edges and the cherry/ gum wood is in between maple and vintage 3 ply in tone.
The drums are easy to tune.

Re: Wrong size tension rods?

Funny how what first appears to be so simple can suddenly become so complicated.

Re: Gretsch bearing edges 60's and 70's

You are welcome. I'm glad that you appreciated the vids like I did when I first watched them.
They really put vintage American drums into perspective.

Re: Gretsch bearing edges 60's and 70's

Gretsch was an inovator in shell design and bearing edge cuts.
I had a Gretsch kit from the mid seventies that had full round over edges.
Before that I recall the outside round over edges that...

Re: Pride and Joy - Stevie Ray Vaughn

Re: Pride and Joy - Stevie Ray Vaughn

I prefer to shuffle it a bit. I like the way the tune feels when it is played that way. I do play it straight on occasion though and it works that way too. I would ask the band what they prefer at...
