    Re: Coronavirus and Musicians

    So far, things are not too bad here in NE. No shelter in place orders yet. Most people are doing a good job at social distancing and staying home. Only exception are big stores like Walmart, Lowe’s,...

    Re: Coronavirus and Musicians

    This is a good question. Problem is, we don’t really know how long this will go on. We WILL get through this. I’m not worried about my job or the company I work for. My wife lost her job, but we have...

    I’m lucky enough to work for a company that’s been deemed “essential” by Homeland Security. In the event that my state/county/city declares a shelter in place, I have a letter that I can carry. That...

    I don’t think there’s an answer. It’s not just the bars, clubs and restaurants closing their doors...any social event that may hire music (weddings, private parties, etc) is being called off....

    Hang in there folks, this is going to get worse before it gets better. The COVID19 virus is nothing compared to the virus of human panic & social media.

    Re: Teaser photo.. Olive wood Stave Snare

    My only fear would be getting things caught on the flip levers. I had a hard time with my old DW snare with the mag release strainer because of that. You’ll just have to be extra careful when...

    The TP hoarding is just plain stupid. I drove all over town looking for some yesterday, but all stores were out. Now Kleenex and laundry detergent is in shortage. Luckily, the company I work for...

    Re: In honor of Martin Luther King Jr.

    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...

    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...

    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...

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