  1. Re: Are Music Stores in Trouble? Retail Sales Flat for Musical Instruments

    I agree, probably a little of both. However, I also think that internet options like CL have greatly expanded the USED instruments market. Many of the used instruments 20+ years ago were still...
  2. Re: Looking for a new snare, don't want to break the bank.

    I'm a Pork Pie fan, but I've played their 13x7 vented. To say it's "intense" is an understatement. I'd start the search at Tama and Mapex. I've seen some OCD wood snares on sale recently. They seem...

    Re: Highlights -- Fair Gig

    Wow. What a fantastic gig. I'm glad everything went well for you!
    I too was curious about the on-stage sound for an event and stage of that magnitude. If the monitor system is jacked, it can really...
  4. Re: What is your individual bio on your band web/fb page?

    Mine;

    "He's not a very good drummer. In fact, he kinda sucks. BUT, he's the only one with a pickup truck and enough motivation to book the gigs".

    So accurate, it's scary, LOL.

    The anchovies probably get stuck in that gap between the head and the rim.

    Re: Your Best Snare Bag ???

    Actually, after looking again, the Roadrunner Touring would probably be my choice. In fact, they're on sale and I have a Platinum card. My new Ludwigs could use a new set of bags....

    Re: Your Best Snare Bag ???

    I've purchased several new snare bags in the last month. All have been Gator bags, but that's mostly because they are cheap, available, and all my Gator drum bags have proven to be almost bulletproof...

    Re: Tips during a show?

    We never put out a tip jar, but there are many local bar bands that do. I'd rather see people tip the waitresses & bartenders.
  10. Re: Drummer, Eddie Villanueva on the Las Vegas shooting

    As sad and tragic as it was, hearing about the numerous acts of bravery and self sacrifice by many of the concert goers give me a spark of hope for humanity.

    Re: Tips during a show?

    I don't think we've ever got "tips" per se, but we usually have someone in the crowd buy us beers on almost every gig. We've gotten an extra $50 from the bar owner at the end of the night before. I...

    Not yet. I keep forgetting. The only time the kit is out of the bag is for gigs, and my mind is usually preoccupied with our sound system, LOL.

    Re: Kenny Aronoff

    That's interesting. I would have guessed that Fogerty would have been the difficult one, based on all the CCR stories. Then again, JCM has always been more of a front man.

    Re: Red Dirt Mountain

    I always liked the TA/Firebird platform. Growing up in the 1970's, it was hard to NOT be a fan of the Smokey & Bandit birds. My best friend had a '80 turbo TA (black & gold). It was pretty weak in...

    Re: Drum Teacher

    I can see where having a teacher play along would be helpful to keep the beat, but I could also see where it could create issues if the teacher doesn't hang back in the groove and let the student do...

    Re: Tom Petty has passed away

    ^^^Thats a cool song. I'm guessing it's just too much of a blues/rock and too slow/hard to make it big. Just not a "happy" enough chord progression or fast enough tempo to make it on the "pop"...

    Re: Pork Pie 13x7 snare & Pearl stand combo

    Got to use the new PP and stand last night. I really liked it. It worked well and sounded....well....like a snare drum, LOL. The added depth and ring did help with projection. Only issue was a fair...
  22. Re: Is it Safe to Safe to Set Up My Drumset in the Garage?

    We ended up actually playing outside last night. Bar owner insisted once we got there and I gave in. It got down into the upper 50's by the last set, but stayed above the dew point. Even so, once the...

    Re: Gibraltar bass drum cymbal mount

    Finally got a pic of the mount in "gig form". The ride cymbal is a 20" medium ride. I took some time to play with everything and found the adjustments that appear to work best. I raised the 10" tom...
  24. Re: Is it Safe to Safe to Set Up My Drumset in the Garage?

    We're playing a gig tomorrow night. 6pm-12pm with a 2hr break in the middle. The guy wanted us to play outside, but I told him "sorry but no. We'll play inside or not at all". The main reason is the...
