Re: Ginger Baker Reacts to Passing of Jack Bruce

Of course, he's got a heart, its just been obscured all these years.

He's also got 2 bass drums, forever. Is his main bass drum a 20 inch? Was it always so?

Re: PSA - Lubricate your P85.

What do lubri-folks think of Teflon based lubricants??
I use them on bass drum pedals . No oils. No dust attracters.

Re: Paying for a badge?

That would never matter for this or any other snare. When you buy a snare, even new, you can change out the heads to whatever you like, most people do. I would buy a snare without heads with the...

Re: Paying for a badge?

I had this snare and it's a nice one, not too overpriced. Mine was $200 used. I'd say it was very well made, and played as well as a Supra (which it sort of copies), but with steel gave it a colder...

Re: Jim Gordon

RI - on that note, he obviously has had many, many years of re-hab. Jim was due for parole many many years ago. Given your expertise, do you not think his time has come to be released, or considered...

Re: 20" Bass Drum Dampening? (New Catalina Club)

Nice choice 20" is great and no dampening needed IMO, especially if you want a jazz tone.

For a more controlled sound, Remo PS3 batter side, Ambassador reso side with felt strip, unported, no...

Re: Ginger Baker Reacts to Passing of Jack Bruce

Ginger is a human, like everybody else has a heart in there....somewhere...and it finally came out. I was pleased to hear what he said. Our mortality always levels the playing field for everybody....

Re: Floor Tom Wingnuts same as Cymbal Stand ones?

Not sure what you're contemplating.
Most floor tom wingnuts are male and threaded outside. They go into a hole to fasten the floor tom leg, right?
Cymbal stand wingnuts are female, threaded on...

Re: Visualizing rhythm ... absolutely brilliant

Super cool. Damn...reading a clock of rhythm seems easier than reading pages of notes in a line. One wonders will this catch on?

Re: A rear line day - mini report.

Andy am guessing you're in a cover band... right? What tune(s) would call for wind chimes?
Do you not ever think..."ahh sod it, maybe I can leave those home today"?

Re: Tuning Drums for Audition

The sound behind the kit can be very deceptive. Record your drums, it helps immensely to hear how they sound 'out there'. Experiment with tunings and record. Results will depend on your room, just as...

Re: How sentimental are you about your drums?

I have over past 3 years rescued and refurbished 6 orphan 60's Slingerland drums to make 2 sets. One is 12-16-20 (unmatched) and another 13-16-22 (matched). These drums are totally 'thee sound' I...

Re: Blues Drum Kit

funky kit indeed, it's setup kind of strange too, the snare seems far more forward than hats.
I've been listening to a lot of old Howlin Wolf and Elmore James lately, and I don't hear much more than...

Re: Drummer Mike Johnston Pioneers Online Drum Teaching

Because you already have hundreds of them? lol (just kidding really).

I find Mike to be an exceptionally positive person. It is refreshing.

Re: Snare Drum Video Test - Rogers Dynasonic, Marvin "Smitty" Smith, Sensitone

Wow nice chops. Wish I could roll like that.
They are all nice, sound wise the Dynasonic had the best definition, but I liked the more un-tamed open character of the Sensitone. So best for my taste...

Re: 3 piece for Metal (is it good enough)?

I quite like the look of 3 piece kit. Its very open, shows the drummer, and has a beautiful, sensible simplicity.

Check out Matt's fancy new snare dampener, the black thing ;)

I totally agree,...

Re: Ludwig Brass Supra

I'd say $400 is not a bad price based on condition.
NOB - nickel on brass

Re: Replace Sonor bass spurs with different brand?

Ya I'd have to say that's nitpicking. But if you want to do it, they're your drums.
Its mostly just about drilling a few new holes and exposing some old ones.
