    Re: Building a Drum Room

    Soundproofing, is different than interior room sound treatments... as you know. The only way to sound proof is with mass and how said mass is arranged. There are super dense "panel/matts" made of...

    Re: Upside down China with rivets

    I've got an old 20" Zildjian "Pang" cymbal I bought in the mid 70s. It's interesting but doesn't get much use anymore. I am planning to install rivets and will orient them for "upside down" playing...

    Re: Building a Drum Room

    Be careful how many panels you install. Start by not buying too many. It's easy to deaden a room too much. My basement studio has large expanses of poured concrete walls covered with three layers of...

    Re: Snuck this home... PDP Classics

    Yes I was fond of frequently activating that acrylic 18". My Collectors 16" X 14", however, delivers all the thunder I need.
    Drums, like everything else, have come a long way in the last 50 years!

    Re: Snuck this home... PDP Classics

    What's your take on the 18" FT and especially the wooden hoops? I have an 18 in my fibes kit and always loved it. Rumbly but dramatic.
    I do a lot of rim shots even on toms to a degree... I'd be...

    You may need an auxiliary snare storage area elsewhere with but a small rack holding the current "rotation" inside the room.

    Re: Thomas Pridgen on Movie Drum Scenes

    That flick was so over the top it's ridicules. The playing was good but the premise that anyone would or could behave the way J. K. portrayed the teacher is a bit much.

    Re: Just ordered the new Speed King pedal

    I learned on Speed Kings (dbl bass drms) in the mid 60's that I played for the first 7-8 years before switching to swivo-matics. Then after a post family multi decade hiatus from playing I rebooted...

    Re: Small Crashes Anyone?

    My main crashes are 16" and 18". A 14" Zildjian Effects holy/slotted one, a 16" China Boy High and three splashes sprinkled about the set. Yeah, I like 'em short and sweet. A smack in the kisser. I...

    Re: Herch Drums

    I guess they believe in FINE tuning. Or maybe their hoops are incredibly flexible.

    Glad your cymbals are more logically located now. Those are beautiful drums! Not to go too off topic but I've been thinking of a remote, or cable hi hat so I can move my 8" tom down to about...

    I fear venue owners/bookers will be looking to save on their end too with a duo. Good luck though. Sounds like fun.

    You see no value in being able to switch heads in about 27 seconds... all tuned and ready to play? I don't need one but it's a cool idea.

    Re: Teaser photo.. Olive wood Stave Snare

    I was guessing it was a quick rim release, but man it looks like it could be a real chore tuning it. Or are the tensioners accessible somehow we can't see. Allen wrench? Are the rims special too? I...
