    bass wood drums

    Tama manufactured bass wood sets in the early 2000s and maybe a couple years earlier. They were, of course, designated as something-Star. I believe Superstar. They were alright drums with good mounting hardware and appointments. They sounded okay for what you would expect of a six or...

    "Paul Simon (& Garfunkel)" FRIDAY 10-fer

    A wonderful human being. Grateful for his talent and success, and very approachable -- humble and willing to share his knowledge and experience with his fellow drummers, or anyone else. Just a regular Joe.

    "Paul Simon (& Garfunkel)" FRIDAY 10-fer

    The great drummer that Steve is (although I haven't seen him much since he and his family moved from Rochester to Arizona) he's also one of the greatest guys you could ever call your friend. Just sayin'.

    Drumming life and Apartment Life...can I survive?

    I was in a similar situation such as you, but as a result of different circumstances. Medicaid took our house and, along with it, all the space I had for 10 kits, many snares, and a boatload of hardware, cymbals , cases, and sound gear. I moved into an apartment and, although painful, I've...

    Moleskin

    Yup. That's all I ever used them for: to protect bass drum hoop marring from pedal attachment at the bottom of the hoop, and cowbell mounting rash at the top of the bass drum hoop. I use Falam-type patches for the beater strikes on the bass drum head -- they hold up much longer due to their...

    Beautiful! An amazing job for a kid her age. Not only that but, at her age, the wherewithal to conceptualize what a wonderful country she lives in. God Bless.

    OT HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY

    Independence Day; fireworks, cook-outs, celebration and, hopefully, retrospect. Countless brave men fought, and so many gave their lives, for the pursuit of freedom – freedom from British tyranny. Our Forefathers sought to establish the perfect form of government – and say what you will – they...

    Snare Stand 101

    Yup. Especially strainers. Tough to line up from a player's aspect if you want an ergonomic position to throw the snares off.

    Unknown Bop kit pictures and questions

    Can't really tell that great with regard to the picture, but I've never seen a bass drum tom mounting system like that in my life. Maybe I don't get around enough. Lol

    Unknown Bop kit pictures and questions

    Yes. The same looking lugs were on a 1980 Pearl Fiberglass "Hard Rock Kit" I bought new and recently sold. HUGE drum sizes -- had to move a lot of air! Too old now to hit that hard. Lol.
