    What’s your best score?

    A couple of years ago I found a Ludwig Acrolite snare for $70 in an antique mall. It came with the hard plastic case too. I don't have a lot of drums, so this one counts as my best deal.

    dino danelli and the rascals 1969

    This is the drum set that I remember. He was the first guy that I can remember that had his tom on a snare stand, and not mounted to the bass drum. Plus there was always talk about how he looked like certain Beatle.............

    Ludwig Classic Maple and Silver Dots: Glorious win or waste of money?

    Narada Michael Walden Joins Journey

    Nope, I was really a TV repairman for many years. Gave it up in 1993 and got an office job. It was the best thing I ever did. I mean who pays someone to fix a TV anymore?

    Welcome to the forum. I was very surprised a few years ago when I had a hearing test to find out that my hearing loss is hereditary, and not due to drumming, playing in bands, etc. But, hearing aids work great, and I have ear plugs for when I play the drums. I haven't given up on my acoustic...

    Narada Michael Walden Joins Journey

    I remember way back when my older Brother (4 years older than me) had Michael Walden in his High School rock band for a hot second. As a kid I always liked to hang out and watch my Brother's band rehearsals, I was always in awe of the drummers. My only other "connection" is many years later...

    Hardware question: L-rod tom mount on Pearl bass drum

    Would another option be to use a Pearl Optimount so you could use the Pearl tom arms?

    What is it with lads?

    I have been a man all of life :D,but in bands I have been treated the same way. I tend to be quiet and let my drums do the talking, but it seems that there is ALWAYS one egomaniac, control freak, etc. in every band I have been in. So people really think that they are the "star" of the band...

    OT: what do you think of where you live?

    My wife and I have both lived in Southwest Michigan our entire lives. Our town is a college town, so we have pretty much everything here. We are also half-way between Detroit and Chicago which is nice. For the race fan in me, Indianapolis is only a 4 hour drive, and Sweetwater Music in Fort...

    Gibraltar it just me?

    When I was younger I wanted a rack system real bad......until I bought one. :blink: It was just too heavy, and I actually felt limited in my set ups.

    Power toms!!!

    When I purchased my Ludwig set in 2011, I ordered the "Power 4" configuration. It consists of an 18x24 bass drum, 11x13 tom, 16x16 tom and an 8x14 snare. I had wanted a set like this since the 80's, and now I have one.
