    Re: Another gig threatened by rain

    It was ugly. BUT, honestly, I’d rather have it turn out like it did then play a full night in front of 1000 people with a fill-in Bass player, doing songs we’ve never done before, LOL. Maybe it was a...

    Re: Happiness Is...

    Not always found where we want or expect it to be, and often the antithesis of what we pursue in life.

    Well, I wish they would have just canceled our last night, LOL. I just spent 2hrs unloading and unpacking all our equipment. Chords, mics, drums, PA.....every last piece, along with all the...

    Re: Another gig threatened by rain

    Agreed. With the exception of this guy, that’s pretty much what we have. He’s good, but we don’t really need his guitar abilities. In fact, I would rather have someone that can sing well and just...

    This was not the first time. Honestly, I really like the guy and really like playing with him. Regardless of his outbursts, he’s got a good heart deep down. He just has that Diva thing that comes out...

    Re: Another gig threatened by rain

    Well.....thankfully, it’s over, LOL. Disaster seems to be the best description. We got set up and started the event off with 3 songs. The fill-in Bass player did OK, but it was kinda rough in spots....

    Re: Another gig threatened by rain

    So far, as of 2:30pm it’s a crap shoot for the weather. We’re supposed to start at 5:00. We’ll show up and see what happens. I told them that if the pavement is wet, we don’t play. It’s a safety...

    Re: Kit you've had the longest?

    I suppose that would be my Tama Swingstar kit from the late ‘80’s. It’s a vintage T badge, made in Japan. It was the first kit I played in a band, and belonged to the guitar player who was a good...

    Yep, I been there too. Probably the worst was actually outside on a downtown street. They had us face across the street. The sound was bouncing back & forth between the buildings on both sides. No...

    You seriously did a great job. I’d say that’s the best I heard from both you and your band yet. Looks like everything is falling into place!

    Nice. I can really tell you guys keep improving and getting tighter. I really hate it when bars have live bands and don’t turn off the TV’s. Just a pet peeve of mine....

    Luckily, this Sable was never advertised. I asked my neighbors what they were doing with it, cause I saw it parked in their garage all winter. They told me the story and said they were planning on...

    Re: Craiglist Tom Angles enjoyment.

    I’d be all over this if the price was right ($400-$500). Looks like vintage Ludwig shells in great shape.

    Re: Newbe to Snare & Hi-Hat

    My personal opinion;
    I think a 12” metal snare would be too bright for my taste in Jazz. If I were to start from scratch, I’d say a 14” wood snare...preferably mahogany or maple. I’d go triple...

    We have those here in NE as well. They like to hang out in closets, basements and garages. I’ve never seen one myself, but I know of several people that have been bitten. Not life threatening, but it...

    If I was gonna specifically pick a snare collection, those are the ones I’d choose. Except for maybe the Mapex....not that it’s bad, it’s just not one I’d pick.
  23. Re: Best way to use 2, identical floor toms in a 1 up 2 down set up?

    Different heads is a brilliant idea. Maybe a single ply for the higher pitch and 2-ply for the lower.

    Re: Hardware bag alternative

    That’s exactly what I used to do with my H&B rolling bag (the blanket thing). It worked, but I hated getting down on my knees after a gig to pack it. Also the time it took. That said, it would have...

    Re: Hardware bag alternative

    Yes...but kinda depends on the stand. I have a DW 6000 hi-hat stand, and it easily holds it. BUT, it’s possible that a real bulky/heavy-duty stand may not fit....I’ve never tried it with anything but...
