    Drummers that love 26" kick drums...What is your favorite depth?

    I have a Slingerland 26”x10”, a Ludwig 3-ply 26”x14”, a Ludwig 6-ply 26”x16”, a 70’s Gretsch 26” with a regular thickness shell, and a Gretsch Vineyard with a thin 70’s shell. Edges/heads/tuning/muffling are all much bigger factors than an inch here or an inch there in depth. If these were all...

    Paul Jamieson is closing his studio business

    Guys, he never contributes anything but unpleasantness. Just put him on “ignore” and pretend he died. Feels great!

    Traded: Paiste Formula 602 Dark Ride for Agop

    I had a same year Transition Dark Ride, and it sold because it wasn’t clanky or grumpy enough. It was merely disagreeable, the one I kept was like that complete a-hole at party who tells great stories.

    People that take apart drums and sell the pieces are horrible humans.

    My solution is that I’m simply no longer selling anything cheaply. I’ve seen a few old drums of mine scrapped out, and a few cymbals sold at begged-for “forum bro” discounts resold for half-again as much, and I’m done leaving much room for a flip. I make money for somebody else at my job. I’ll...

    FedEx delivered my C&C kit to the wrong address! UPDATE: They found the kit but the bass drum is cracked

    OT: Great Gretsch GUITAR Sound

    As for what to listen to, Mr. Campbell’s used his all over all the Heartbreaker’s stuff, Duane Eddy’s “$1,000,000 Worth Of Twang”, Brian Setzer’s whole career, a goodly portion of George Harrison’s, The Cramps, and on and on.

Muffler knob, same Throwoff tensioner knob, unknown Muffler knob, 70’s Ludwig Weird little knob, god only knows Jack cup for a Telecaster Micro sensitive arm, for deeper drums No-slip spike...
