    Drummers you have dicovered "by accident"?

    is there anyone who hits harder than Kenny? he plays with dynamics, but it’s almost as if his ppp is my f. . . . Everything is at a different volume level.

    First live show with my 1960's Ludwig's this weekend

    Consider tuning them higher than you might indoors or at home.

    Just got word on my new delivery date of my AHM’s

    I really have a mental block buying Chinese made Yamaha - it’s my own issue, but it is what it is. But after looking for a few months at new kits, I’m kicking myself for selling my old MCA kit and/or not picking up a MCA or Sakae bop kit when I had the chance. The old school MCA where simply...

    Ludwig Legacy in stock?

    For what it’s worth, I’ve spent the last month trying to find a single Legacy downbeat kit in stock in the entire North East USA to try and the answer might literally be there are zero. I can find a 1960s kit, but not a *new* kit. Ludwig is running a really good Bun E comparison of Legacy’s...

    Mark Giuliana Switches to Zildjian

    I often wonder how many of the Jazz guys who switch to Zildjian do it because they want to play old K/As in public instead of using them in the studio and another brand live. Similarly, is there any other cymbal company that routinely allows endorsers to play prototypes to the same level...

    Gretsch & Ludwig custom order experiences?

    anyone done business with this dealer? I don’t know anything about them? Perfect eBay feedback, but their listing style (basically list every Ludwig kit configuration, with stock photos, and various different delivery dates from now to end of December) makes me suspicious.

    Gretsch & Ludwig custom order experiences?

    Thanks for the feedback guys. This is enforcing my view long held view - and JDAs approach - to buy what’s available. That will most likely scratch Legacy’s off the list, but still plenty of other options.

    Gretsch & Ludwig custom order experiences?

    This seems like a possibility from the quotes I receive. Some say 1-2 months, some say 5-6 months. It’s hard to decipher dealer wishful thinking from reality - and I too wonder if certain dealers have a fast track process.

    Gretsch & Ludwig custom order experiences?

    Based on your posts you have seemingly spent a large part of your life obsessing over the perfect K, A, or Turkish cymbal and exclusively play a Gretsch bop kit that I remember your ordered from a dealer closing out the jasper model Broadkaster singles. You didn’t walk into your local drum shop...
