    Fave Live Albums

    The Allman bro’s. Live at Fillmore East. The drums and the music ! Actually almost any Allmans...... live or not . Sevendust Southside Double-Wide . These guys put on one of the best shows I’ve ever seen although I never saw their acoustic show except on video ( but so awesome). This...

    American football!!!

    Soccer ( football) has become pretty big in the U.S . Not so big when I was a kid ( I’m 53 now) but by the time my oldest daughter ( she’s 24 now) ( I have 3) started playing at around 5 , so roughly 20 years ago there were soccer teams in every school and town leagues to join and it seemed like...

    Favorite piece of gear that's not a drum or cymbal.

    For marching in the pipe band it was the padded over the shoulders harness . So much more comfortable and convenient than a sling strap, although I do prefer the look of a sling to a big metal ( although light aluminum) harness . But damn that harness made it feel like there was no drum or...

    GC Wouldn't Let Me In

    I’m only fairly certain of a few things ....... 1. Wear a mask not so much to protect yourself , but to protect others . 2. Who knows what the numbers really are . I’d agree with mountain man that they could be higher maybe ? Maybe not , as states are reporting deaths from covid simply...

    What's your latest purchase?

    Nice 👍🏻. Congrats on the find . 8 years 😳... , but I’m guessing worth the wait . Hope it’s sooner for a 13 for my kit.

    Tama snare decision.

    Correct . I thought originally I’d pick one up the first two weeks I got the kit 2 months ago when I had seen a few on line , but 4 weeks later I couldn’t find ONE on the net. I gave some thought to the matching finish WB then as I thought they’d sound similar but I only heard them online and...

    Tama snare decision.

    Lol! No rabbit holes for me , or $900 snares at this point . Yes I do like a little more fatness in snare tone and although I couldn’t tell much difference from the recorded demos I thought the bb sounded slightly fatter and lower. But like I said I have not heard both in person . Have you owned...

    Tama snare decision.

    I couldn’t tell much difference In sound between the two on video demos either ( I’ve not heard them in person ) so I was leaning toward the bb because the kit is bb . You say get the walnut/birch for uniformity ? You mean the bubinga/birch, yes ? As that’s the kit I have . I think Cb means...

    Ever regret buying a drumset?

    Ok thanks. I’ve not listened to the 5” so I can’t speak to it’s sound . It was the 6.5x14 I’ve listened to . If Anyone who owns the 6.5 x14 starclassic BB could comment on my “ Tama snare decision “ thread , I’d appreciate it. As to the thread at hand..... I’ve regretted some hardware choices...

    Ever regret buying a drumset?

    Wow, that situation DOES stink. But when you sell something it becomes the other persons property🤷🏻‍♂️. He shouldn’t have cared if you made lamps or planters out of em ... there yours ! Unless there was an agreement to sell em back at a certain point , not unlike a pawn shop .

    Ever regret buying a drumset?

    I’ve heard the BB and WB demos on YouTube and thought they sounded great ( and not ALL that different) never played either though and was thinking of picking up a matching snare for my BB kit, ( just started a thread about possibly picking one up ) so this is disappointing to hear . Was there...

    Tama snare decision.

    Yup, I hear ya . I have a 68 LM400 and a friend is gifting me a tama star classic birch in natural so I’ll have those . I have also looked used but nothing in my finish . That’s the reason I’m leaning bb , as the new bb’s that are left won’t be around long and when they’re gone , they’re gone...

    Tama snare decision.

    So two months ago I picked up a near new condition Tama starclassic bb 6 piece in molten brown burst. I wanted to pick up a matching snare and I will keep it a matching finish and was going to grab one in bb. But now as happens with some of us , I’m complicating my decision and started thinking...

    Testing a cymbal in person; Do you stick a finger in your ear?

    Only have my phone now so it’s hard to see but I think blue poster above guy in red is Nick Mason , and red poster between his right and to left of guy hitting cymbal is Keith Moon .

    What is YOUR strongest quality or skill-set on the kit?

    I knew I kept this for a reason ......😉

    What is YOUR strongest quality or skill-set on the kit?

    I wish ! If only . But I can improve my playing knowledge and technique With practice and build it around my timing 👌🏻. Some might build the other way where there playing and technique is good and then work to improve timing . I kinda wish maybe my playing and technique was better and then work...
