    I got me a big ol' pre-war brass Ludwig snare, today.

    I got a 6 lug shell similar to yours at the CT drum show maybe 15 years ago. With a modern throw on it and wires (I did not have the original) its a total keeper and a 6 lugger. I use it exclusively with this 80s sounding band I play in. Its dark and very sensitive...a total keeper...see if...

    Anyone playing Ddrum?

    I was originally thinking acoustic drums...but they were a big player in e drums too (what happened there?)... I now own an RX Pedal (I like it) and a cymbal bag (I suspect made for them)...both are pretty decent. Saw a snare for sale recently...was curious what folks thought.

    China's as crashes

    I always thought it was cool that Charlie used China's for crashes (did he ever say he came to do that?)....Monday night I saw Kevin Tooly (NY drummer) playing with Richard Lloyd (Television) and he was also using china's for crashes (a zildjian and a Paiste). Was curious if anyone...

    Halloween Costume Party Gig - Help!?

    Years ago my 7 pc ska band played a halloween party. We just bought 7 lone ranger masks (in white, can't remember why) and we might have had matching converse sneakers back then. It was cool cuz it gave the band uniformity...wasn't heard to play in. Reminds me of...
