    Holes In Gretsch (Jasper) Shells

    Agreed. Just roll with it. Mine has a slingerland and it is just part of that drum.

    My Round Badge kit is 20, 13, 14 from factory. I've always loved that spread since you can get better tension out of a 13 than a 12, and the 14 has serious punch

    Ludwig Super Classic 4 ply shell kits

    You don't see many for sale because nobody wants to give them up. They sound amazing. I got mine in my senior year of High School in anticipation of my first pro summer theater gig and at the time they were pretty unfashionable. Nobody was buying 10,12, 14, 20 in 1992...and they sounded like...

    There weren't any 10" double headed toms offered in the catalog for your era kit. I think those came in the later 70's and at that point I believe the shells were a little thinner. You could always rework a concert tom if you can find one. Drum shops used to do that all the time. Good Luck!!

    Bass drum mic Recomendations

    I would love to revive this thread. I have an M88 and a 421. Both are great, though for some things I would like something a little brainless with some built in Thump. What do you have?

    Zildjian QUICK BEAT vs NEW BEAT top cymbal... any difference?

    I have both and would say the Quick Beat has a little more bite than a new beat. Maybe its the pairs I have. The New Beats are a little more versatile.
