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

    It sounds like it but not really, considering the songs and style we play.
    Basically, our new front man plays rhythm and leads on a 12 string and does most all the vocals. He learns the songs (Most...

    Re: Another crazy 2020 anomaly

    Yep, hot to cold at the drop of a hat. As I get older, that pattern seems to apply to more and more every day.

    Looks like they’ve changed the forecast...now low 50’s and rain all week. We...

    Another crazy 2020 anomaly

    What a crazy year...I think we can all agree. The weather in Nebraska is always a source for jokes. The old saying is ďif you donít like the weather in Nebraska, just wait 24hrs. Iíve seen some...
  4. Poll: Re: How many gigs are you playing a month during this Covid pandemic?

    We had 1 gig in late July and have another one Scheduled for next weekend. Both private parties/events. Most local venues have all but given up on live music for the rest of the year. No one wants to...

    Re: Any suggestions on a new kit?

    Any of those are excellent starter...even mid-level kits that can take you as far as you want to go. I’d say it’s more about cost, features and what catches your eye.
    I know from owning one, the new...
  6. Re: Looking at new hoops and lugs for my Black Beauty

    Any brand of hoops will fit, as long as the lug count is the same. As far as the actual lugs, I have no idea what the bolt center are. I know the Ludwig “classic” lugs (And every other Ludwig lug...

    Keeping in mind that NE is probably the state LEAST effected, the industrial markets have remained strong. Some industry segments are a little soft, but others have taken up the slack. The store I...

    Re: One up, two down setup figured out!

    My Ludwigs are 1up-2dwn, but I rarely use the 2nd FT. It requires too much floor space for most of the venues we play. I probably only bring it to 2 or 3 gigs per year.

    Both sound like great kits, but To me, it’s the orange sparkle for the win.

    Sticky: Re: DW Drums Discussion

    As awesome as DW’s are, Classic Maples in VMP are iconic. Pairing them with 2002’s is a perfect combination. Going back to the roots and simplifying your setup sounds like a great idea to me.

  14. Re: When the universe speaks , I listen. Could it just be bad luck?

    Sorry for your accident, but it’s awesome that you’re recovering!

    Good thing you’re a drummer. A fall like that would have killed a Lead guitar player.

    Re: Premier Resonator- wood or metal hoops?

    They definitely have a purple color when looking at them up close. From 3-4 feet away, they just look black. The finish quality is fantastic. I’ve yet to find another set of drums that are built as...

    Re: Premier Resonator- wood or metal hoops?

    Those old Premiers are some of the best made drums in terms of material and craftsmanship. I have a set of XPK’s that I restored a few years ago. I don’t know what the finish is for sure....but I...

    Re: Premier Resonator- wood or metal hoops?

    I’m 99% sure they would have been wood originally.
    Wood hoops will definitely make a difference in sound..at least Acoustically from behind the kit or up close. If you’re playing live in a band,...

    Not much really. It helps seal the wood to protect it from moisture. Since we play outdoor gigs, it’s an added precaution. I’ve had my drums rained on before. Plus, when we play outside gigs in high...
