    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...

    US Navy Commodores Swing Band

    Bosphorus EBC Line Rides, Crashes, Chinas

    I've tried a set of EBC cymbals from Bosphorus at a mom and pop drum shop recently and was knocked out by the sounds first and the overall look as well. The 21 ride sounds like it would be cutting in medium and large jazz situations, especially big band. The same is appealing to me for the 18...

    BEST Drumming Gift YOU Received

    My Fridays of late have been lesson days. Yes I have started taking students once again after 5 years without. Out of desire, not need. Being picky, being choosy. Casey Christenson is my dear friend from many years ago. He plays rock-a-billy guitar, collects Gretsch electric hollow bodies (there...

    Traverse City - Need A Little Help

    This may be off the beaten path for topics in this area of the forum. If so I apologize. This also may be too much to ask for to many members. Those who know me well, know I do this sort of asking with respect and would not ask what follows without truly being in need. I have a gig coming up...

    Austin City College Stage Band

    I've been having a blast playing the Austin Community College 18 piece Stage Band the last 2 years. Semi retirement leads to some great opportunities in the place you live. ACC is one of the greatest community colleges in the country. Steven Sodders is the leader of the band and is a fine...

    Who Will Pass Out First At NAMM Get Together?

    Damn, an edit.... I have to keep my big yap shut about where I am getting my "guest badge" this year but it's fair to say I don't have to play for any Sax import companies or demo any new ching ring hand held cymbal HH devices up and down the halls of the drum world/sound pollution areas of the...

    Thanks Ludwig!

    I had three Keystone lugs strip on the mounting screw holes...that is three screw holes on three seperate mounting holes on three Keystone bass drum lugs. I contacted my dealer. To replace the three lugs would cost me "actual shipping" plus the mysterious $15 in "warranty processing". Hold on...

    The Triumphal Case Case Rip

    When I got my brass on brass BB a while back I thought it would be great to have one of those cool looking cases Ludwig includes with their ultimate high end snares such as the Triumphal. So Memphis Drum found out that they do sell the very case at around 150 bux. I ordered the case as part of...

    New Keystones New Mounts

    First and of most importance the arrival safely of four different boxes with four different drums can not go without thanks. FEDEX proved again why they have for more then two decades been my choice for delivery of anything with the possibility of damage and/or ruin. Thank you FEDEX once again...
