    Chick Corea Roy Haynes cymbal

    I am looking forward to using it on an acoustic jazz gig as I think it will sit nicely in the mix. While I have used flats for a long time, of late I have been using them as my main ride. I think it has to do with my old ears and the lower volume levels at gigs. Lovely sound anyway. FYI the...

    Chick Corea Roy Haynes cymbal

    Does your taste in drums reflect your taste in cars?

    Fun to compare notes on this. I have a gig car and a gig set. And garage queen cars and studio queen drums. Silly, I know.

    What is your favourite kit you own now .

    #1) Yamaha MAC: 14x18, 8x10, 8x12, 14x14, 6.5x14 Others: Inde: 12x18, 8x12, 14x14 - idea gigging kit for acoustic jazz; wish the bass drum was 14x18, but great sound and portability Gretsch: 16x20, 8x12, 15x15, 6.5x14 - wonderful kit; wish the bass drum was a 14x20 but can't complain about...

    How Things have changed since 1967 - Ludwig

    In 1968 I bought a 1967 pink champagne Club Date kit with Acro for $300. Used, but spotless. Funny how those old catalog pictures are still burned into my memory.
