    Re: Tabla

    I bought a set of moderate-grade tablas for about $100 via eBay, about 6 months ago. I really haven't used them very much, but I've been experimenting with using only one drum at a time. I had...
  2. Re: LP Generation III triple bongos - anybody familiar?

    Yah, hey dere, bongobro!

    Thanks for the reply, re. Gen III triple bongos. The question has become a bit of a moot point, since my savings are now much less than when I posted the inquiry (read my...
  3. Re: LP Generation III triple bongos - anybody familiar?

    Hi, Gretschhead!

    Thanks for the reply re. Gen III's & Gen II's. I can see how 3 in a row might be less than useful if you're playing seated. If you were standing and could move easily from side to...

    Re: Bongos

    What are most useful for me right now, are the bongos - but, that could easily change. I've been discovering what a huge range of sounds can be achieved via a tabla. I've been experimenting using a...

    Re: Siam Oak really being the Rubber Tree

    Fascinating! I'll never look at my LP Aspire bongos in quite the same way, ever again. Lucky for me, I fell in love with them before I knew what they were made of! Now, instead of being put off by...

    Re: Seated or Standing?

    You know, I think the choice is really a matter of what you can manage physically. I always play sitting down - but, that's a necessity for me, due to physical problems. If that wasn't a limitation...

    I've been considering for a while, re. purchasing a set of the LP "Generation III" triple bongo sets - but, I don't know anybody personally, who's got any experience with them, and there's no stores...

    Re: Gon Bops & epoxy

    Hi, Gretschhead!

    Glad you found want you really wanted! I think, though, that using epoxy is a very wrong move. The proper product to use is Carpenter's Wood Glue. I can tell you from personal...

    Re: I miss the skins :(

    Hi, Gretchhead!

    My bongos are LP Aspire. Despite the low cost, they were virtually flawless when they arrived. Beautiful heavy Siam oak with shiny steel hardware that worked perfectly. I'd...
  10. Re: LP Compact Bongos & Congas set - any comments?

    Oh - I also should have mentioned, that I really can't use sticks for drumming because of my wrist, ligaments, tendons, etc. problems. My wrists can deal with directly forward & back motions, but not...
  11. Re: LP Compact Bongos & Congas set - any comments?

    Hi, Gretschhead!

    Thanks for your feedback. I'm not very concerned re. volume, because I'd almost always be mic'ing them when on stage. I've found it's almost always necessary, if you want the hand...

    Hi, Bongobro!

    Pleased to meet you!

    I just found this forum about a week ago, and thought it would be a good addition to my online connections. (I also visit the fiddleforum & banjo hangout...

    Re: Drumming and Arthritis

    Ibuprofen helps my arthritis. I think it's a better choice than aspirin, because aspirin is an anti-coagulant, whereas ibuprofen is an anti-inflammatory. When the pain's bad, I take one just before...
  15. LP Compact Bongos & Congas set - any comments?

    Does anybody have experience with the LP Compact Bongos & Congas set? I've been thinking that I should buy a full setup (4 drums on one stand), but because of where I live, there isn't any way I can...

    Re: Mini Bongos?

    Hi, Muddykins!

    I have a pair of LP mini-bongos w/ 4" & 3" heads. I've used them as a 2nd pair being played at the same time as regular bongos. My conclusion from doing that, is that the...
