    Re: Marketing is funny...

    When I see instruments like this, it makes me think they're taking b-stock blemished models and charging you more than they would ones that were manufactured properly the first time.

    Re: Kickport review and comparison

    Great comparison video. I personally liked the empty drum with just the tone ring and no KickPort the most.

    Yes he does. He has been playing since age 15. Self taught rock drummer. Had to learn trad grip, and was taught how to play jazz convincingly enough for the movie.[/QUOTE]...

    Re: To Ride or Not to Ride?

    I've noticed a lack of ride in a lot of music, mostly because it doesn't make as much noise as a crashing pair of open hi-hats. In most of the stuff I listen to, playing on crashes, and now chinas,...

    Re: Why so fast?

    Sometimes music calls for certain things to be played with a high velocity, and not just "death metal with cookie monster vocals." A lot of fill and intros to relatively slow music sound extremely...

    Re: Ear plugs at concerts

    I try to. Don't go to shows too often anymore, and sometimes forget that "softer" music isn't always less loud. I always have some in my truck, but if I don't drive then I'm s.o.l. Some venues...

    Re: Ludwig Supraphonic restoration

    No, I didn't. One side is flakier than the other. Those were the pictures from the web, before I ever got it. All the chrome has to be stripped.

    Re: Cross sticking with Ahead sticks?

    I had a couple pairs of Ahead sticks. They bent and broke, mostly because of rim shots. Also, the urethane sleeves on them are good for about one song (rock/punk/metal) if you change them properly....

    Re: Ludwig Supraphonic restoration

    They're both still round. The Acro has some dings and dents. Money is going towards 14 year old vehicle maintenance at the moment, so the project is on hold unless I can sell a drum set and scrap...
  13. Re: Is this the smallest stage you have ever seen?

    Nope. Murphy's Law in the Seminole Hard Rock area has a smaller stage, or it did the last time I was there. It's big enough for 2-3 dudes to stand with guitars plugged into the house panel on the...

    Re: Ludwig Supraphonic restoration

    I'm confused. What got done? :think:


    Yeah, I found those sizes on eBay too. I was hoping someone here had one to measure just to be sure. Thanks for the help.

    Re: Ludwig Supraphonic restoration

    I've already got an S-hoop from another drum going on top. Probably going with a regular 2.3mm triple flanged snare side hoop.


    So 1"-something for the actual length. Narrows it down a bit. ...

    Re: the throne squeaks

    My Gibraltar throne is nearly 16 years old. It also doubles as a desk chair for me. It's been squeaking a lot lately, where the seat bolts to the post. I took it apart and noticed it was dirty, so...

    Re: best double pedal for speed (inexpensive)

    It is mostly in the player. I say mostly because if the pedal doesn't feel right to you, then you might not be able to push past that. I've found the Gibraltar pedals I've tried to feel slow as...

    Sticky: Re: Mapex Drums Discussion

    I have two. They were between $100 and $130 new. As far as sound goes, not a single complaint. They get the job done. Some of the 14" snares are 10-lug too.

    That's one way of looking at it. I was referring more towards engine management and all the needless crap people buy. The flappy paddle comment was just a side complaint about cars.

    Ok, thanks.

    After some internet searching I found someone who can get me some lug gaskets for the Supra. I'd like to find some for the Acro too, and some generic gasket material to put under the...
