Ive had several dry spells,longest was 7 yrs. Life takes us in interesting directions.
Right now,i havent played a band for over a yr and a half but keepin up what chops i have as a pocket player. Tuning snares and kits i enjoy,shoulda been a drum tech.
Not really too concerned about the band...
I had the Downbeat kit of the Clubdate SE series,they were cherry and poplar w roundover edges,sounded enormous but the burgandy spark wrap was thin and bubbled on me badly from an outdoor gig.
Cavern Clubs were the same.
Still would like a 13,16,22 of them.
I agree,my buddy has a large hybrid kit with a big ass P.A.,it sounds great,he loathes everytime he gigs to lug it around.
After 3 yrs of that,he just settled for a kit like Vista's picture, small ,efficient yet still kicks!
Myself,im like CC,acoustic works for me.
I dont get laid though! Lol
There was a tv show called What in the World when i was a kid.
Archeological experts would put their heads together and explain what a specific archeological find was and how it was used.
Loved it as a kid.
Anyway,i got this 20" bass,years ago.
I see Ludwig lugs,Ludwig claws,Ludwig bass mount...
