Re: George Way Drum Co. ?

I did help out Ronn this year at the NAMM show, as he hurt his back and was unable to attend. I did get a good, up-close look at these drums and they are very impressive. Carter McClean is a great,...

Re: Larry made it!

Larry is on the left, I'm on the right. It was really nice meeting Bo and Larry. Jon and I have known each other for about eight years now, he's a great guy!

Oh BTW Bo, it was also nice meeting...

Re: Bo is available ;)

Good luck Bo. Can you pm me your phone # as I may need a solid sub for some gigs this year.

BTW, I think you may need to change your location in the upper right corner ;-)

Re: The official, "Your services are no longer required" thread

Hang in there Bo and keep your head held high. Like Harry said, one door closes, another one opens.

Re: Carmine Appice Lobbies For Led Zeppelin Drum Spot

I've watched the 2007 O2 show several times, and I think Jason nailed that show. The only song that I thought was a little off was Since I've Been Loving You. Robert Plant said the remaining Zeppelin...

Re: No love for 20" bassdrums?

I never thought I would like a 20" bass drum, but I have really warmed to my 12x20 Blaemire bass drum. I use it on a couple tight stage gigs, and its just the punchiest little thing. It also brings...

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: 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
