    Friday Five-fer - Genesis

    I got Genesis spoon fed. Nuff said. Btw both these: And these guys are killing it: Saw the latter some years ago with dad and according to them they were close to the original in terms of staging and such.

    Your last impulse purchase

    Yes. In classic Cherry red. I did need a small kit for my micro city e-car so this would fit that bill hopefully.

    My bad :icon_e_biggrin: Something must have went wrong. I adjusted it.

    Cast vs thick rolled snares

    I will. So curious. He kept a wood hooped model, but im partial to triple flanged and die cast anyway. It looks he kept it in prisitine condition, as I always try to do with my gear too.

    Cast vs thick rolled snares

    I caved in, and am curious to see if it lives up to the buzz. I got this Ayotte Keplinger with the original triple flanged hoops. It should be here tomorrow.

    What's Your Latest Drum Purchase?

    For that price (less than 1400 together, both in new condition) I couldn’t pass them on. Either as investment, to stay for a long time, or both, I will have fun with these.

    Your last impulse purchase

    As I couldn’t pass them for those prices, but they are much welcome.

    Drumcraft Cast Bronze back home and video!

    I read the thicker the cast bronze shell the pingier. I never used them any thicker than 5mm which sounded fine by my ears.

    ONE Snare Drum

    This one at the moment. I have a marching snare for sale too so that one isn't being used. After 30 years of playing (and at least 2/3 of that buying/selling/racking up drums and co) I don't see the need for a lot of snares, nor need it too. It's just clutter in my mind.

    Butt kicker anyone??

    It was just not enough at that moment compared to the BC, the unit was fine as I got it straight from P&D’s European man Gerrit. Not so much as the X though, it was more than workable. I just prefered the beef (and extra input) of the BC models more. I can’t believe what 1000 watt would do :-D...

    Butt kicker anyone??

    I got this one used for 800 bucks in NOS. My fifth in 8 years (each time an upgrade/change of model). I started with a loan model BC, then the gigster, then the BC Rack, then the custom X (with the BC transducer and rack amp as I found it lacking just like the gigster), and now this model...

    Center Bass Drum Port Like Charlie Watts?

    I now play a 24 RC with the 10” centre hole, and it sounds different than playing it with no head at all. I have a small square part of isofix on the bottom. A classic sound and proper feel on the player’s side due to its larger size (something I usually miss from the old RC kicks).

    24" Zildjian Concept Orchestral Ride

    Dream cymbal right here. I sold my K Con 24 proto (whoch sounded like a bubrid between the K Sweet and a regular K Con) and this has everything that one lacked for me. To add. That is something I found after playing the 24 for a long time now. Last week a jazz drummer who also bought my 24”...

    Session Drummers

    Kenny's book gives an amazing insight into the work that you have to put in it and the attitude you have to have, and how the industry worked/works too.
