    Inexpensive practice pad set

    Too old to keep lugging my set in and out and can't afford a second set. I'm thinking a decent practice pad set might be what I need to keep toned up between jobs. Never had a practice pad set and I...

    Re: ever felt discouraged?

    At my age (61) there are million younger drummers out there that can play circles around me. Even after playing in bands for 40+ years.
    I think drummers are a unique group of musicians. And you are...

    Re: Good To Hear Your Own Drums

    I agree with all those here who say "just any drummer" does not get to set at my kit. Like I said earlier, this has happened a "few" times. That is over more than 40 years of playing. Only guys I...

    Re: Dusty drums

    I would guess the cloth you used had something to do with it.
    The best I've found is a dusting product they call a Swiffer that's on a handle. I use it often. Works great as static duster and even...

    Re: Irony

    Three things kill the jobs and the level of pay: DJs, Karaoke, and the bands willing to play for chump change. One guy told me his country band played recently for a local bar on a Sunday for $100 (3...

    Re: Staying on Top of Your Game

    I actually forced myself to get to our last practice. In a real funk for some reason and all the way there I kept thinking "I don't want to go" "Don't want to be there".

    Re: Fun with my gear

    I'm setting up a red kettle (drum) outside the nearest GC with a "Help get Bish his 6th set for Christmas" sign.
    Might be time to organize an "Occupy Bish's Drum Room" movement.
    Very nice Bish !

    Re: Sandy Nelson

    "Let There Be Drums" was the tune that gave me the drumming itch. Then Ringo and The Beatles finished me off. Loved that Sandy Nelson 45rpm.

    Re: New Set

    In reading the Amazon reviews it appears you should replace the heads soon and pick up some decent cymbals, and maybe replace the kick pedal. Shells seem to be o.k. for the price. Good luck...

    You're probably right. Maybe most influential by decade would be easier, and safer.
  20. Re: Who is the most influencial drummer(s) of all time?

    My answer is in my signature.
    There were so many guys picking up the drums and guitar right after the Beatles came out, you could walk down the street and put together a band from the guys you ran...

    Re: Heard my drums from a distance

    Sometimes listening to your drums being played by someone else can be the best way to tune your set. I've been surprised by a cymbal or two before, too.
    Now if there was just some way to listen to...
