    Ludwig 60s vs DW

    If you have a chance to play both go for it. I love DWs and Ludwigs, but I don't have vintage drums, both my Ludwig and DW are "newer" and they're both awesome. There are a lot of people who hate DW (not sure why)...but try both if you can. One thing for sure, the DW hardware is bullet...

    Not one, but two 1980 Tama Bell Brass Snares!

    I found one on Sweetwater a few months ago, really like it except for the strainer...changing the wires on that thing is a nightmare. It is normally a nightmare for me to change wires anyway, and that thing makes it impossible.

    Strange hi-pitch ring from kick

    I had a time once in which I went crazy chasing a ping I thought was from my bass drum. It was actually from the HVAC intake vent that was 3 feet away from the drum...each time I hit the drum the thing would vibrate at a resonant frequency, it drove me nuts till I figured it out.
