    Re: Your Drumming Skills Level

    Man, it kind of depends. Right now I'm pretty average at best. 5 or 6. Summer and winter before last I had some guys coming over at least once, sometimes three times a week and we'd play 3 to 4 hours...

    Re: Small Crashes Anyone?

    It really comes down to having a "palatte" of cymbals to meet the need depending on mic/no mic, room, PA and music and instrumentation etc, etc. Smaller cymbals may have a nice envelope but can get...

    Re: Cymbal weld

    I wonder if some type of heat treatment might help preserve the integrity of the weld. It seems traditional heat treatment to harden may cause brittleness and a quick demise. I wonder if something...

    Re: Ludwig Maple Classic - Blue Sparkle

    I was gonna say, "Isn't that 12" tom supposed to be on a rail mount?" But MDK beat me to it sorta. But I'll be first to say... "Where's the Speed King and accompanying Hat?"
    My first kit was a 60's...

    Re: Greatest Drummer of All Time?

    Check out Antonio Sanchez solo on the live version of "The Gathering Sky." by The Pat Metheny Group. He gets 4 different counterpointal clave rhythms going...just 'cause he can.

    Re: Looking at upgrading double pedals

    Boy I'd like to test fly a set of MDDs!!! I learned on Speed Kings in the mid 60s. I exclusively buried the beater in those days and the direct drives were superb for that technique.

    Many of us went through that period of drum dreams. In my case it was sending for, or going to Hermie's Music in Scenectady, NY to get Ludwig, Rogers, and maybe Slingerland catalogs. I lived in those...

    Why the pitch bend on the twelve? Is that your "go to" or preference?
  19. Re: My son's drum heads continue to tear on his new kit?

    I'd agree that wrong, as in too steep, stick angle is the most usual suspect. That and poor quality heads as stated. I suppose you could run your finger around the bearing edge, the rim of the drum...

    Re: Favorite or preferred snare

    I currently play a dw Edge. It's a 14" X 5". It's just about a perfect snare in my opinion. Metal edges with a maple shell. I once had a Supraphonic and it was hard to find fault with that one either.

    Yes I was fond of frequently activating that acrylic 18". My Collectors 16" X 14", however, delivers all the thunder I need.
