#1645220 What Kind Of Tribute Band Would You Want To Be IN?

Posted by CSR on 02 February 2018 - 09:43 PM

The big bands of the 30's and early 40's.

Buddy Rich band would be a trip...could call it Ruddy Bich.

Playing my 70's Slingerland marine pearl 24/13/16 set with Zildjiand and Amedia cymbals.  White Suede heads for mid-range brightness.

#1620249 You've got $2000 . . . . . . . . . . . and you have to spend it on drums ...

Posted by CSR on 21 November 2017 - 07:49 AM

According to the recent email I got from Africa, much more than $2000 shall soon be deposited in my bank account. I will go crazy at that time.

This windfall I sent well worth the few hundred I sent to the most polite and friendly representative of the Mugabe administration, I think.

#1610846 Marching Snare sound help

Posted by CSR on 21 October 2017 - 11:50 AM

Kevlar cranked up will burst lugs and possibly crack the shell.

If you want a marcher, get a marcher.

You can't make a Hummer a Ferrari. They're both good...but for different things. IMHO.

how strange that i can read all kinds of words in my national newspaper from c to f, but can't write the word "s***" on the drum forum.,,....is this trump's sad influence


No, it's the fact that this is a serious, adult drum forum that is differentiated from most drum forums, with posters that have access to a larger vocabulary. Most of us are fine with that.

#1595162 OT - warning points - what is it and why is it there?

Posted by CSR on 01 September 2017 - 05:48 PM

It's telling you that you're not spending enough on drums and cymbals.



Most of us never see this warning.
