    I guess I am old but I find this puzzling

    I have spent 65 plus years in sales and customer service. The most important thing I ever learned when a customer voiced a complaint was: 1. Acknowledge the customer by repeating the complaint back to him. 2. Carefully and respectfully ask pertinent questions as regards how he handled the...

    Quality of Recent Mapex Drums

    I bought a Brass Cat 14 x 5 1/2 snare last summer. Best sounding and easiest playing I've ever had in 65 plus years of playing. It's part of their Black Panther group which are in their Sound Lab series. Not sure if that means their computer developed but who cares. The hardware is superb. I...

    How About Songs w/Ride Cymbals That We Liked?

    Now that's fine ride work. I'm guessing that's called Fusion Jazz but I don't pretend to know it or where it deviates from modern Jazz. But nice work anyway.. he's letting the stick do the work.

    How About Songs w/Ride Cymbals That We Liked?

    I've seen this and I think Zildjian has captured or a very close to the sound of Joe's original ride. I lucked into a 70s 22in Zildjian Canada ride last December that has a very similar sound and as Joe is my all time fav i was very pleased. As I stated I loved Joe's ride work especially on Take...

    YOUR IN A DRUM BATTLE WITH BUDDY RICH/WHATS YOUR PLAN TO SURVIVE!

    Dead on OC. That Bolero would drive him nuts. But if anybody thinks Buddy couldn't play quiet and disciplined has not listened to a great Verve Jazz album recorded in 1957 called "King of the Vibes". It's Lionel Hampton Vibes, Oscar Peterson piano, Ray Brown Bass, Buddy DeFranco Clarinet and of...

    Quality of Recent Mapex Drums

    I bought a Brass Cat this year. It's part of their Sound Lab Black Panther series and I will tell you it's the finest snare I owned in 65 years of playing... ultra sensitive, can be played soft or kick butt and the hardware is superb. As regards Sound Lab I'm guessing it means computer...

    How About Songs w/Ride Cymbals That We Liked?

    Being old I'm not familiar with about 90% of the artists listed. The ride came into it's own mainly in the fifties as I recall. When you look at the Big Bands of the 30s and 40s one will see cymbals were small and used for accents only and the Hat was used extensively. I first became aware of...

    if aliens had to come here and farm every snare drum on the planet but you were allowed to keep one....which would it be?

    My latest.. Mapex Brass Cat. Super sensitive, dual snare adj and fact it can broadcast big or small without annoying ring requiring muffling. I have Osteo but the Cat makes it seem like I'm young again, especially l.h. / trad grip.. rolls, snaps, fills etc

    Jazz hi hats? What are you playing currently?

    Awhile back I decided I liked a brighter lighter sound than the 3 sets I had around. I had purchased a Sabian 14in B8X crash as it was bright and had some sizzle. So I purchased a second and now use them, selling the others off. Interesting to note that one is in the key of B the other D when...

    Anyone planning/dreaming about a move?

    Hey Pasquale Move to Italy. Have you not seen where you can buy a home in one of those quaint small village homes for $1 ? Buy a small Olive grove and a Donkey snd bask in small town living in that warm Sun. Of course you have to like Pasta. Damn, if I was only 20 years younger ..

    Anyone planning/dreaming about a move?

    Hey I'm 80 and in 2018 I lost my Bride of 57 years and thought I'd just stay in the Canadian Prairies and continue going south in winter as we'd done for years. As things started to go bonkers in Fla and Texas...so many people "packing"...stand your ground law.. etc. I decided to winter in the...
