    Re: First band rehearsal in months

    My second shot is scheduled for 4/12 and our first rehearsal is scheduled for 4/14. We just booked another gig at a new place for us(outside) on May 29th. We had played a few times at another place...
  2. Re: "Willful torture, abuse and cruelly beating a child..."

    This one scumbag won't give drummers a bad name. The proportion of violent criminals in the drumming community is no higher than that of the general population, and most people will understand that....
  3. Re: Biggest Mistake You've Made in Your Drumming Career

    I regret going on extended hiatus from the drums once I got married and had kids. Luckily I never sold my kit so it was waiting for me when I finally decided to start playing again 25 years later. ...

    Re: New floor tom

    I have a 1976 Ludwig 20"(not sure of the depth) floor that I just had restored. It's thunderous! I used to use it with my Slingerland kit, but I'm tempted to look for a Ludwig kick and rack of the...

    Re: New floor tom

    I have a DW Design kit to which I have added the 8" rack. I would love to get the 14" floor so I could go with a 1 up 2 down or a compact 4 piece or a full on 7 piece.

    Re: First band rehearsal in months

    Sorry to hear that Zack, I hope he recovers quickly. One of my bands now has 4 gigs booked starting in June, so we'll probably be starting rehearsals again soon. We're getting our vaccines so I'm...

    Re: 22x20 bassdrum too big ?

    All my kick drums are 22" diameter and 3 of them are 18" deep, one is 16" and I had one cut down from 18 to 14" depth. I agree with Zack that the 20 and deeper kicks would likely have less punch. ...
  8. Re: and How many Gretsch players are on this Forum?

    One of my kits is a 2000's Gretsch Catalina Ash. I bought it off Craigslist as a "beater" kit and it was pretty beat up. I tried to refinish it but ultimately decided to wrap it and it became too...
  9. Re: What's the coolest gig you've ever played?

    I would have to say the coolest gig I've played is back in 1982, when my band The Nubs opened for British punk recording artists 999. The way we got the gig was kinda funny. The promoter posted an...

    Re: Favorite or preferred snare

    My favorite has been my Tama G Maple 13x7. My new favorite is my Rukus 13x6.5, unfortunately I just got it this year and haven't gotten to play out with it yet.

  14. Poll: Re: How many gigs are you playing a month during this Covid pandemic?

    The venue we were scheduled to play September 11th, which was cancelled, just had its liquor license revoked because of alleged violations of Covid protocols. I feel the place has been unfairly...
  15. Poll: Re: How many gigs are you playing a month during this Covid pandemic?

    So we just booked another gig at the same venue(a marina) for Sept 19th, but also found out that the gig scheduled for the 11th is most likely cancelled. So for the entire summer we will have played...
  16. Poll: Re: How many gigs are you playing a month during this Covid pandemic?

    2 since March 14th, both at the same place, one scheduled, one a last minute addition after another band cancelled. Many others cancelled. We have one gig in September that hasn't been cancelled...

    Re: Which Kit to Keep?

    I agree with Zack. If you can, keep both. While I don't have quite the inventory Zack does, when my 2 bands were both gigging, I had 3 full kits and 2 sets of hardware in cases ready to go at all...

    So one of my bands had its first practice since March last night. We spent most of the night setting up a low volume PA, no amps, electronic drums and in ears. We made a lot of progress and finally...

    Restored 1976 rare floor tom.

    I have a Ludwig floor tom I bought used in 1981 that I believe is a 1976 based on the serial. I added it to my Slingerland set to gig with back then. It's been collecting dust and rust since then...
  24. The "beater" kit becomes the main gig rig!

    So here's the evolution of this drum kit. Bought a used Gretsch Catalina 4 piece as a beater kit a few years ago. It was in rough shape, with deep scratches in the finish and bass hoops painted an...

    Re: My new Rukus Custom Snare!

    Thanks! It did cost more than a few of my kits, but I figured, life is short, if I can have a snare made that's like no other, and my wife is OK with it, why not?
