    I think I was mislead by a drum dealer, can I get some 2nd opinions - 1940s Slingerland Radio King

    Can add a few thoughts.... 1. I have NEVER heard of Steve being anything but the utmost in honest. 2. Having refinished a multitude of modern and vintage drums, I see this set as a borderline case teetering on that edge. Meaning, if the desire was to have a "Survivor" all-original kit as a...

    Fibes Austin Era. SOLD

    Good Lord man! What an amazing drumset and a crazy price. For the life of me I can't understand how this set hasn't been snagged. The Austin Fibes were absolutely top notch drums and just have that something only the late 80's and 90's Gretsch had IMHO. As someone said years ago...they have...

    Refinishing Gretsch USA Bassdrum

    Been refinishing drums a loooonnngggg time. LOL! Best shot is natural...don't even try it with a previously stained drum....you will not be able to pull the old stain enough or will sand through too much of a ply (or more) to get to workable wood that will take the stain. Another option I...

    I'm curious. Let's start a thread on if you do or don't like 18" deep bass drums

    16x22, 14x24....optimal sizes for my playing in average sized shells. A thin well made kick then deeper works as you can make it happen with less energy than a thicker shell drum. For live playing rock or country...I can't see much better than a 14x24.

    Former Foos Drummer Not Happy With Dave Grohl

    This guy failed at business...nothing else. Sounds like he had no formal arrangement about being "In the band"...or rather "in the Business." Without that...he's simply contract labor to the entity who is defined as the business. Recurring story in any business...not just music. See Michael...

    New Recording Custom Owners: Any YESS tom choking?

    Can't see what the griping is all about. Snapped two short videos of a new RC 13" tom sitting on a tom arm attached to a kick. Thick two ply head (vintage emperor), a piece of moongel, and not even really tuned. What more are you looking for?

    New Recording Custom Owners: Any YESS tom choking?

    Don't know but the tom sound ridculous mounted on that YESS mount and attached a post coming out of the bass drum. Sounds massive...and tons of resonance. Can't see why messing around with the mount would produce anything you'd want more than that. Play em and enjoy them...Yamaha did a really...
