    Re: Possible Dream Kit today?

    Makes sense.
    The Gretsch website doesn't mention the reissue in their badge history, but I've heard about this before.
    In addition, those tom mounts certainly don't jive with 1981.
    You are going...

    Re: Possible Dream Kit today?

    That drop G badge had a limited era..........1981 ?
    I have a friend in Texas that has a SSB kit in Rosewood Gloss..........really pretty.

    Done it my whole life.
    In fact my "teeth kit" sounds better than the kits I see and hear in local bars.
  6. Re: Yes another new drum set for MDK..blah, blah, blah...

    That has to be a QC issue; I think that hoop was out-of-round before it was installed.
    The history of Gretsch reflects that cast hoops were originally introduced as a way to create a physically...

    Re: Phil Collins can't play drums anymore

    Yes...…..sad.
    Bad feet; bad hands...…..not good news for a drummer.
    Retire and try to enjoy a quiet life well earned.

    Re: Count me in (Netflix)

    Thanks......I'll check it out.
    Me and the wife really enjoyed all 6 entries of McCartney 3-2-1.
    A lot of fun to see what pops into his mind the second he is played a Beatles tune from studio tapes....

    Spaz...……….
    I like to play gigs with new sticks...……..I use Firth.
    The lacquer coat on brand new Firth sticks will give me blisters and my hands really hurt (almost always on the snare/left side)....

    Re: which should I get and why?

    I agree with these guys.
    If you want Mapex, think Saturn; if you want Tama, think Starclassic.
    You will not appreciate the lower lines of either for long.
    Between the two, my choice would be Tama.

    Re: Ssb/usa

    Love those similar sizes, Rick.
    During the 70s, those oversized shells were the norm.
    Glad we both stuck with them all of these years.
    I still believe the 24 bass is the bomb.

    I received my shipment of Gretsch USA shells 44 years ago today (8/26/77).
    The lacquer coat is all spider-webbed but otherwise, good as new.

    Re: Ludwig Maple/Birch Shells

    As of yesterday, this kit is no longer available.
    Since buyers expected me to just give it away, I decided to do that.
    It was donated to the music school I attended in the 70s; they were very...

    The Stones have never sought the most musical or technical approach.
    They (to me) are more like the World's most famous and successful garage band.
    In that context, there are thousands of drummers...

    I would never categorically deny any brand as inferior.....you need to hear the cymbal itself with a kit involved.
    Real drummers go to the cymbal room at Memphis Drum Shop......not YouTube.
