    Looking For Acrolite Parts

    I recently picked up a 1966 Acrolite at a flea market and am rehabbing it. It is cleaning up pretty good however, it appears that someone spilled a coke or other liquid on the batter head and did not properly clean it up. Put in the case where it has been in storage for 30, 40, 50 years? As you...

    The Beatles

    Great memories!!! I remember this night well. I was 11 years old and seeing the Beatles for the first time forever changed me. I became a drummer! Saved my paper route money and bought a blue sparkle set that I still have today. Happy Anniversary to all of us old Beatle fans out there!!! Mike

    Lightweight Hi Hat Stands - Who Likes Them ?

    I am having good luck with my DW 6000 series flat base HH stand. Built very well, nice looking and is very light weight. I would buy another one if I needed two HH stands.

    Lefties who play right: Chime in here!

    I am a natural lefty and as lefty as it gets. I play a right handed setup open handed (left hand on the hats , right hand on the snare, but right foot on the kick), In 1965 when I was 15 I only knew one way to set up my kit which was how Ringo set up his. Tried to play right handed but it was...
