    Who hardly ever plays their drums at home?

    Well said.. as for my declining skills, i'll find out next week when I audition for the band at the Care Home my kids are putting me in ! just kidding but when I first started playing with a new group of Pros, ex Pros and educators I was in that unsure mode. Then I saw how often they "blew...

    Who hardly ever plays their drums at home?

    Yep but in January when it's -30 plus wind chill in the Canadian prairies that heat and humidity is awesome !

    Who hardly ever plays their drums at home?

    You Texans are different anyway. I always thought that Darwin could have saved a lot of time and money going to the Galapagos looking for the missing link by just going to Tejus. Just kidding, I spent some happy winters in Weslaco escaping the cruel Canadian winter.

    Who hardly ever plays their drums at home?

    So that was either a mild rebuke or he was genuinely kidding you. But your right, as we age we lose the little things just like Pro athletes. I have Osteo in wrists, hands and fingers plus an artificial knee so I have to keep at it. I'm ok with the Rock, Country and Swing beats as they are...

    Who hardly ever plays their drums at home?

    I lived for 35 years in our own house and had a studio per se in my basement that was drywalled, insulated and no windows. Our neighbours were 75 ft away minimum si we could do all kinds of jams. Then apartment living. The supers let me keep my drums in a hallway niche as I put on music programs...

    Hired gun question

    Tough to argue with guys like Mel or Buddy Rich. I'm sure being a recording engineer was a genuine challenge when working with those tw Great post. And while your right up there with the biggies as a performer you haven't let ego get in the way. And while your doing profession wise what many of...

    FYI: Sabian cymbal refresh now only supports "new" logo

    We No it's for all their latest production. I bought a new AAX ride in 2020 right off the shelf and it had the old logo. I Sept I bought another B8X crash and it had the new logo. This March I bought a Legacy Dave Wechl signature that was drop shipped right from Sabian factory to me and it has...

    Recommended Ride Cymbal for Small Jazz Kit?

    Oh yes.. Now as I understand it, the AAX rides you and I have are machine hammered whereas the K was done by hand ? But as you say they look virtually the same. Makes one wonder ! At any rate Sabian offers many great options that are very well made and their quality control is top notch and has...

    Evans heads still failing

    I was intrigued by Attack as well. Apparently they were available in Canada but since new buyers it's no longer the case. So I contacted them and they had a U.S. dealer contact me. I placed an order and they shipped but didn't get the documentation correct for export to Canada. UPS insisted...

    Evans heads still failing

    My Remo Diplomat FiberSkyn is at least 4 years old and gas been on at least 2 if not three snares, played lots and still in great shape. Others report delams with FS heads. All mfrs go through teething problems with new products. In all aspects I go with what works for me until it fails and that...

    Thank you for reading all my posts and understanding that I harbour no ill will to Evans, I'm sure if I survive a few more years I'll try them again.. delivered to the care home of course !

    Hired gun question

    Unless your Mel Lewis.... On a YouTube interview he said he wouldn't let the sound engineer mute his drums, especially his kick.. he wanted the big boom. Mel was a little opinionated and crusty at any rate but who could argue with his success ?

    Evans heads still failing

    If you followed all my threads you'd know that I'm 81, use a lot of brushes, and I have never broken a head playing in 65+ years. I'm sorry your so sensitive but the fact remains that Evan's has had a quality glitch.. happens to every company eventually, but aren't apparently rotating the...
