    My first INDe kit. And it's pretty rad!!

    Very nice. Enjoy them. I've never heard aluminum drums, but they seem to get great reviews. I wouldn't think that material would make a good drum sound, but apparently, I don't know anything!:)

    What's the Piccolo Snare Holy Grail?

    My Ludwig Classic Maple, early 90's I think. Wonderful sounding piccolo IMHO

    OT: touring bicycle recommendations

    I have a bunch of Italian steel racing bikes, ranging from the 70's to the 90's. Fantastic bikes, really aggressive, fast and great handling bikes. They're no joke, their true racers. But I'm not exactly the rider I was and I probably should look for a more casual tourer with a more relaxed...

    Pat Benetar's Love is a Battlefield

    So I guess I Shot the Sheriff by Clapton led to rappers to talk smack about cops and cop killings?

    OT - Keith Richards quit smoking after 55 years

    You know, I'm not sure it didn't hurt bars! I used to be able to walk down my local Ave. and hit 5 or 6 bars on the way home. The old pub crawl. Now you might hit one and other avenues have none. It could be other factors like drinking and driving or that younger kids aren't bar goer's like the...

    OT - Keith Richards quit smoking after 55 years

    We thought that then Mayor Bloomberg was crazy when he said he would outlaw smoking indoors, including bars. It was just a given that you would reek of smoke odor when you got home and had to strip in the hallway before coming in the house. I never smoked, but it was just the way it was BITD...

    Bernie Dressel wiith The Brian Setzer Orchestra.

    Brian really was a great front man. He commanded the stage and the band, so there's no reason to apologize for not hearing the great drumming. It really was one of the greatest shows I ever saw live. There was a lot of talent in that bunch.

    Aquarian Response 2's "black" are turning my sticks black!

    Don't use @bpaluzzi suggestion. It probably works, but I don't like him...:angel5:

    Yeah, the gangsta rap, death metal and pop of today is much more uplifting...:icon_e_confused:

    Aquarian Response 2's "black" are turning my sticks black!

    I'm thinking those black marks will wipe right off, no? I play the black Aquarian DeJohnette heads (love em!) and don't see that problem, however they do get some white stick marks on them, kind of weird, but they wipe right off.

    OT - Keith Richards quit smoking after 55 years

    I'm not sure quitting after 55 years is going to help him much. That's a lifetime. Any damage that was going to happen has likely already happened. But hey, if he feels better, who am I to say? Good for him.

    Can We Re-visit Hearing Aids?

    I spent a lifetime in construction, the military and as a guitar player, so I came into drumming with hearing loss. But it's the tinnitus that is getting scary loud for me. I've actually taken a break from drumming for over a week now to see if the tinnitus will calm down some or not. So far...
