    Re: My New Pup

    Cute little guy! I love puppies, but I’m glad all my dogs are fully grown. Puppies chew on everything....and their teeth are sharp!

    Re: Kick drum cut down 18" to 14"

    I’ve been wanting to do the same to my 22” Ludwig Centennial. The first versions were 20” deep. They looked like giant beer cans. Ludwig revised the depth down to 18” (which is what mine is), but I...

    Re: Super Bowl LIV

    Im not a pro football fan. I can watch it, but I’d much rather watch college football.

    The company I work for is based out of KC, so all I’ve heard about for weeks now is the Chiefs. I’m sure our...

    Re: Reaching drummer maturity—

    I think another aspect is listening to the rest of the band and being able to make adjustments (timing, dynamics, style and even the count) on the fly. I see drummers that just take off playing a...

    Re: Reaching drummer maturity—

    To me, maturity in playing means playing for the song.
    That includes playing the groove, using dynamics, feeling and expressing yourself within the context of the song. Being able to recognize what...

    Not sure if you will be able to view the picture clear enough, but this old advertisement shows how the internal compression spring action works. The eccentric cams on the end of the fulcrum shaft...

    Re: NEW Ludwig Speed King is coming

    Which is exactly why others like myself WILL buy it! It’s beautifully simplistic. From a technology standpoint, I would argue that it was decades ahead of its time. Even “state of the art” new pedals...

    NEW Ludwig Speed King is coming

    My prayers have been answered! Just read today that Ludwig will offer the Speed King again, available this spring.

    Looks like it’s an exact copy of the Vintage SK, except with more robust linkage...

    I worked with an engineering company a few years back that did 3D printing. It’s amazing how detailed they can get. The biggest use for it is in doing product prototypes for testing fit and function....

    Re: Drums and Drumsets made with a 3D Printer

    That’s pretty cool. I don’t see any reason why the big brand drum manufacturers could not have produced an all-plastic or nylon shell w/integrated lugs from cast or injection molding decades ago if...

    Re: Hot Wheels

    Re: Leftovers or No?

    I’m with you, Rick. I’m not a fan of turkey (or Chicken or any foul). Luckily, we did a spiral cut ham and plenty of side dishes....including Jim Beam....which I believe qualifies as “grains” in the...

    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...

    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...

    Any kits that I acquire from now on will probably be vintage stuff. I have no problem collecting stuff that will increase in value.
