    Re: Just got a gig offer

    Everything we play in my band is a “cover”. We put our own “spin” on it, so it’s not note-for-note.....but technically it’s still a cover. Heck, many of the popular songs by the famous bands that we...

    Re: Fills

    I believe you need to develop your own style, which includes when, what and how you incorporate fills into a song. One of the reasons I love playing Blues; you play what you feel at the time, which...

    Re: Saw this on my local Craiglist...

    For $7k, you can have ALL my drum kits, my furniture, my TV, AND, I’ll even throw in a ‘95 Aerostar van AND a ‘97 F250HD to haul it all away.

    Re: Do I just have bad GAS?

    For me there’s no “perfect kit”. Honestly, at my talent level, my $100 Sound Percussion Bop Kit is more than adequate. It’s proven itself on every live gig over the last several years. The drums are...

    If I were to attempt it, I’d use a Sure 57 or 58....probably start with a 57. May need 2 mics to get the full sound; one behind to capture the bass and one in front to capture the slap sound off the...

    No reason you couldn’t, provided there’s enough room.
  9. Re: I've finally reach that point ,no more drum buying

    Any kits that I acquire from now on will probably be vintage stuff. I have no problem collecting stuff that will increase in value.
  10. Re: I've finally reach that point ,no more drum buying

    I won’t say I’m done “forever”, but I’m in a comfortable spot. I’ve looked at new kits, cymbals and snares multiple times over the last year, but was able to walk away. I look at the price and ask...

    Re: Really cool moment with my son

  12. Re: Bought our 1st RV/Travel Trailer to camp, anyone else Camp?

    That’s awesome. Congratulations!

    As far as the F250, it just depends on where & how far you want to travel. If it’s just to local lakes and mostly flat, then the 1/2T would be fine. Especially if...

    To really get that vintage Beatles sound, you’ll need the top-of-the-line Legacy Maples or Legacy Mahogany...high dollar....
    Either that, or go find a used vintage ‘60’s kit. I believe Ringo’s...

    Re: Tom stands for 80s Pearl

    I’m a little confused as far as what’s going on. The Pearl tube mount/ratchet arms are hard to adjust, but typically are extremely stable.

    Are these what you’re talking about?
