    IMO you should have lost the logo on the BD head. It clutters up an otherwise really cool design!

    Re: Really cool moment with my son

    My Mother played piano, as did my dad and sister. I played cornet and drums and my brother plays guitar.

    Re: I want acoustic drums...wife says NO!

    It seems the only option left is to take up the flute... ask her if that's OK.

    Re: Gone Waaay Too Long

    Good to hear from you again PB. You have been missed.

    I had that on some old Ludwig mufflers I installed in a set of Fibes acrylics back in the 70's. I tied some string around the threaded shaft so as to hold the vibrating of the flat strapping like...

    Re: Tama SLP G-Maple snare unmatched

    As alluded to by Ricardo, it's my guess that what draws you to the G maple Tama is the 13" size more than anything else.. As you decrease snare diameter you increase the pop & snap crispness and...

    Sticky: Re: Sabian Cymbals

    I don't care about logos. They get polished off anyway. (Oh the horror...right?) It's the sound I care about and no two cymbals sound alike. When I find a cymbal that I like I'm not willing to hunt...

    Why, if you have your own house, are you set on getting an electric kit? Is it family noise considerations? I hope it's not because you're daunted by managing an acoustic set.
    I say this because...

    I have a mix of Zildjian and Sabian. Slightly weighted toward Zildjian in quantity just because they've been around since I started in the mid 60s.

    Re: DW 9502LB stand - how to mount cymbals

    It's funny because I'm buying a 9502LB soon. I had no idea the bottom cymbal was secured/retained. The Only reason I can imagine for that is so you can tip the unit and maintain the cymbal...

    Re: DW 9502LB stand - how to mount cymbals

    The lower hat cymbal just sits on the felt washer with nothing but gravity holding it from floating away. I'm not sure what nut you're talking about but it may be a lock nut for the clutch assembly...

    Re: Deeper sound from 5" snare?

    Some ring sounds good out front. Try a moongel and hit in the center for less ring. Off center for more ring.
