    Re: Gone Waaay Too Long

    Good to hear from you again PB. You have been missed.
    I used to play in a group called The Little River Band from Hopkinsville, KY (not the more famous Aussies) at a large bar/club on the outskirts...

    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...

    Sticky: Re: Sabian Cymbals

    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.

    Tom, us old guys are exactly the ones most aware of hearing loss. Not to mention tinnitus which many of us hear all too well.

    Re: Building a Drum Room

    I'm kinda surprised you're going as in depth as you are if you're leaving in 5-6 years. But then I'm old and chronically lazy.

    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...

    Can't say as I necessarily see the value. Yes, you save a snare and two or three cymbal stands but need to set up all that pipage.

    I could be wrong, but I don't think DW outright "owns" Gibralter. They own the rights to distribute, or handle Gibralter along with other co.s that used to be distributed by the Kamen Music Corp....

    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.
