    Floor tom tilted or flat?

    I’m a short guy and even with my stool setup higher (which I really don’t like) I’m routinely hitting the rim on the floor tom. I know I’m an anomaly here but I guess it just works for me.

    Probably not my favorite as a kid as it was too long a drive for me at that time but I did enjoy visiting a few times.

    Who's using a throne with a back rest?

    I have a Roc-n-Soc w/backrest and wouldn't be without it but I do not gig any more so I don't have to hassle with that.

    Apartment Living - Electric kit vs Mesh Heads LV cymbals

    How sad. I have no suggestions but am truly interested because as an "oldster" I am considering moving into condo or some other local where someone else maintains much (if not all) of the property. I really don’t want to give up my drumming. Then again, I don’t want to be the annoying new neighbor.

    For the nostalgia threads

    This is going to really sound weird but I loved tearing off the plastic cellophane LP wrapping – just not the same with a CD or now streaming. BUT, don’t get me totally wrong, I am a true Spotify fan.

    Terrible Noble and Cooley News

    I may have missed this but who is the current owner and why/how did the Cooley decedents become redundant? How sad. . .

    Short sound guy rant.

    Maybe it's just me but I'm missing the significance of the sound guy's stature?

    Bernard Purdie Interview / Rick Beato

    Toms left to right setup as 12>10>14. This is what I was asking in an earlier post. Is this common? Do many of you configure your kit as such? No biggie, just wondering.

    Bernard Purdie Interview / Rick Beato

    Not to detract from the interview which I liked (Yeah, BP can be a little into himself but that’s fine with me too) – but I have a different question. Maybe this is quite common but I noticed he has his high tom on the right side of his 2-up configuration. Is this more widespread than I thought?
