    Interesting Zildjian K Pre-aged dry light ride

    Dangit....just looked at it. It is a K (top). A Custom with no lathing on the bottom at all....smooth as can be bottom. Most definitely a "K" stamping on top. This ride really sounds great. From edge to bell, under and rim. Swing to 4 quarters on the heavy rock...awesome. It looks nothing like...

    Interesting Zildjian K Pre-aged dry light ride

    I've never weighed mine - the one I bought down by the Santa Ana River and Warner in 1986. Was that a Sam Dashed shop there? Man, my ride has lasted a lot longer then the store did.

    Thoughts on getting old

    I swing better @ 62 then I did at 20, 25, 30. all the way to age 60. I can drive a big band - 16 piece - at this age more comfortably then I did 1 or 2 or 3 decades prior. I believe I pay much more attention to the swing groove at 61 then I did at any better than I did at 35. What is up with...

    Playing The Room

    Do we all pick nondrum items to play on or approach the kit on areas that are not regularly played? Buddy on The Muppets episode really brings this out when he played around the Muppets Theatre before ever getting near his kit. Has anyone gone down in front of the stage or on the stage and...

    Congratulations to a young kid David Kapral who was much younger when I met him and his dad (Chris Kapral, Saxamaphonist). He has to be a greatly proud dad. David is the newest addition to the bone section in the Commodores. Check out young David's bone solo at 51:49 on the clock. A smooth kid I...

    Back off higher tension when storing snare drums?

    Bowties are sometimes Go-ties. Take a pic and send it to Ludwig with an explanation. Chances are you will get a replacement in the mail. No matter the year. Then again if you have been buying from them for 3 generations since 1958 your chances are VERY good you will get a replacement. I'd give...
