    Upper Tier Snares and the Veblen Effect?

    There is a new and very popular group on a Facebook called “Snares” run by master collector Frank Jaubert. It is amazing to see some of the collections some of the fellas have amassed, walls of snares. Also pretty surprising to see the amount of boutique makers that have posted there...

    No, it is made and as far as I know placed.

    Aren't All Crowes Black? Ex-Drummer Sounds Off On Moneymaker-Shaking Reunion

    What about Gorman’s drumming on the Jimmy Page and the Black Crowes live at the Greek? Great job covering Bonham.

    N&C SS Madagascar Rosewood

    You have a quick eye Barden. I was wondering if anyone was going to pick up on that. Nick doesn’t let anything go to waste. He noticed that the board I secured was just thick enough to make two snares if it was precision ripped. He sent it to a local sawyer and did just that. So yes, there...

    N&C SS Madagascar Rosewood

    There is always one in the crowd, most of the time that is me so I just take it on the chin. I agree that the badge placement is original but I think, like their lug placement the vent hole placement is strategic.

    N&C SS Madagascar Rosewood

    Quick back story for anyone interested; About six months ago I was on the hunt for a Vintage Tama Mastercraft in Rosewood and just got shut down. A while earlier I had met Nick Jones at the Noble & Cooley booth at the CT. Drum Show and he left me with a great impression of both him and the...

    Favorite groove drummers.

    I absolutely agree with Vinny Appice. I also think McBrain is a great groove drummer. He is always in lock step with Steve Smith and Dave Murray but because Smith’s compositions are so complex McBrain can be a little tough to cover. ....and let’s not forget about Phil Rudd. He could groove a...

    Nicko leaves Sonor for British Drum Co

    I play Sonor drums but don’t really have any loyalty to the company as it stands today and what drums a fella plays is somewhat irrelevant to me. Perhaps McBrain answered the call of Nationalist pride and decided to throw his considerable influence behind the home team. What kind of support do...

    Nicko leaves Sonor for British Drum Co

    That’s a tough loss for Sonor right there. If I were them I’d be sending Steve Smith a van load of Russian hookers. The graphics on McBrain’s new BDC Drum are amazing.

    Sabians, Zildjians

    I’m interested in the 22” K Hi Def. I have 16” Paiste crashes in 2002, 2002 Thin, Sig Full, Sig Fast, Sig Power ...and a 17” Dark Energy to offer up for trade.

    Repair this?!

    I have had good luck repairing cracked bells with JBWeld. Before you toss it I would try that. Maybe even drill some holes through the crack so that the JB creates a bridge through both side. Might even use some mesh drywall tape imbedded along the worst of it. Brazing is really the...

    22" Zildjian K Light

    Hello Michaelg, no, I have not heard a 22” in person. 22” is just the ride size I love. I have been mostly listening to YouTube videos from Memphis Drum Shop. Now that gives me an idea, they list their cymbal weight, I forgot that. That could help me figure out what weigh sounds best to me.

    22" Zildjian K Light

    After a whole life of being a Paiste Man, I have fallen hard for the K Lights. I just picked up a set of 15" hats and 24" ride. I am on the hunt for a 22" ride and of the two I am considering one is listed as 2524 grams and the other 2370. Could you fellas educate me what these weight...
