Re: Always out of breath, need to get my stamina up somehow.

Find out if you have any medical problems that may be causing it first.

If not, then follow some of the good suggestions given here.

Re: Pork Pie Hip Pig Eastern Mahogany Snare

I'd email them and see if you can work out a deal on something else.

Re: No love for 20" bassdrums?

20 is essential.

The rest are just extras for fun.

Re: Kit Upgrade, Looking for Advice

Are these the ones? http://athensohio.craigslist.org/msg/4781154304.html

I'm not too up on Ludwig stuff, but I don't think they're Rockers. Pretty sure they never had those kinds of lugs.

Re: Kit Upgrade, Looking for Advice

I was basing my comments on the Rockers from the info I got here: http://www.vintagedrumguide.com/ludwig_rockers.html

That - plus there are Rockers around here pretty frequently, but I don't...

Re: A new idea? Probably not.

You probably can drop the floor tom and ride cymbal too.

If you picked the right 17" hats, you probably can get a useable ride ride sound with them open.
Bass and snare are enough for the 2 and...

Re: Kit Upgrade, Looking for Advice

No debate here - 5 pc. w/2 up, 1 down is how I roll.

About the Rockers - there are two separate 5 pc. Rocker kits (with snares), available locally.
They've been for sale for $150 for each kit...

Re: Got my 50th anniversary supra today!

Please don't.

It was meant in a good-natured, kidding kind of way, but I should have put a LOL with it.

Re: Got my 50th anniversary supra today!

Try to keep it that way. It's not that hard to do.

It looks really great right now. I hate to see them when they're all trashed out, even if they still sound good.
Nice drum - I like it.

Ludwig Legacy Mahagony

Read on another forum that these were at the PASIC show.

Probably be announced at the upcoming NAMM. Really interested to hear what these sound like. I suspect they'll be a bit pricey though.

Re: Ludwig Breakbeats VS Sonor Safari

I'm not a fan of those sizes.
But I've heard the Breakbeats and it sounds good.

If I were to choose between just those two kits, I'd get the Ludwig in black sparkle: ...

Re: What a bummer :-(

I don't understand how you guys have trouble positioning your ride with a 2 up set.
I've always used a 5 piece with two toms mounted on the bass drum.

I can have my arm touching my body all the...

Re: Pork Pie Hip Pig Eastern Mahogany Snare

I'm pretty tempted by this. No one around here has one to try, so I tried to find some videos/reviews.
Didn't come up with too much, but the Pork Pie Facebook page implies that they're almost...

Re: suggestions for best rods and brushes

I like Vic Firth Heritage brushes: http://www.vicfirth.com/product/buynow/product.php?button=HB

Like MHD says though, you've got to try some out.
Different diameters, lengths, handle coatings,...

Re: Made a riser for 16 in tom to kick

That'll work.

I like the idea of the bolt for the leg mount to secure it.

I misunderstood your intentions.

Re: Gretsch orphans or new kit?

What kind of a budget are you...

Re: Mary O- Update

Vinyl Notice - clever.

I've still got my Cranberry Red 5 piece, but the red Bop kit is history.

I don't think you should give up on the drums completely.

Re: Mary O- Update

Hi MaryO2 (ha ha):

it sounds like you still have those Cranberry Red Stage Customs, but that someone else is rockin' them now - that about right?

Got any pics or videos of the new band?

Re: Ludwig Breakbeats Kit

I've only seen the blue, but they've also got black, and white sparkle kits now too - pretty cool little kits:

I'd say if at all possible, try to get to a store that has some of those sets to try out.
In particular, try sets with different size bass drums.
