    RIP Joe Porcaro

    Very sad. He’s had his share of tragedy in the family, but never the less not many have given as music to music as they have. RIP!

    Tuning Bass Drum with Tune-bot

    I tune to an E usually. 61Hz on the beater side, 91Hz on the resonant side. Ported or not ported is the same.

    Are 18"-22" deep Bass Drums doomed to be completely undesirable?

    I don’t have any issue with my 18” deep 22” kicks. It’s just another (good) sound.

    What drums are you not fond of? A silly thread!!!

    DW. Way too much metal on the shell. I also don’t appreciate of generally short note and dull sound. I respect all the awesome finishes they have made and various innovations. Mapex. Dixon. Ddrum. Drumcraft. Crush. Those brands may make god drums. But there’s no story or history that speaks...

    What is a “small” crack to you on a cymbal?

    For me a cymbal with a crack is a worthless cymbal. Exception is if it’s from a well know play and is only going to hang on the wall anyway.

    Had to put my 16 yr old dog down and I can't get over it...

    Lovely dog, but I think you did the right thing. Visit the local dog shelter when the time is right and see if anything melts your heart there.

    "Styx" Drummer Todd Sucherman Barely Overplays on Solo Track

    I thought it was a good pop song. Maybe not what his drumming fans was hoping for, but a reasonable song.
