    Neil Peart and the Ludwig era...

    Wow! I thought it was just me. His Ludwig kit from Hold Your Fire has been my favorite live sound & Moving Pictures is my favorite of his recorded output. I saw them line in 92 Roll the Bones tour which was the first time I had seen him with the single kick kit. I kinda stopped following...

    Player drum love

    Some of my favorite kits are players. My ssb Gretsch kit from the early 70s. My Yamaha RC. My Gretsch rb. They sound & play unreal but I don't sweat taking them out in public.

    Help date this Gretsch Renown kit.

    That's a cool finish. I wonder if it's original. The cymbal holder bracket was most likely added by a previous owner.

    Is the ride cymbal dying in modern rock music?

    Sounds like we definitely need to bring the ride back then. In my playing it's never gone anywhere.

    Recommend me a Zildjian China

    I have a 14" K Mini China that's awesome. It's light & beautiful. It cuts more like a razor instead of a chainsaw. You can play it in quiet spots.

    Premier Marching Snare Question

    Those sound like paper tearing when you buzz roll them. I met some Scottish Highland drummers who played them & they sounded unreal.

    Premier 2000 snare - what a sound!

    These in my experience are not unlike Supra's in that all are not equal to each other. I have had multiple 2000's/Supra's and they didn't all sound or feel the same. My buddy in high school had one of these and it sounded & played like you described. It put my Supra to shame in every way. The...

    You should do a home tour. You have some really cool gear.

    Ronald Bruner Jr.

    His soloing, while jaw dropping, to me just sounds like flies buzzing around. I can't play that way so I am impressed as a technical drummer but as a solo with memorable phrasing & "moments", i'd rather listen to someone say something. Max. Tony. Billy. Weckl. They all tell a story when in the...
