    Paiste Sig Trad Medium Light Hats

    I picked up a pair of these (used) at the CT Drum Show. Wow! These hats might be the best I have ever played. I don’t know much about them at all - I do know they are the sound I think about when I consider the “perfect” hi-hat all around sound, if you know what I mean. Anyone else playing these?

    Nicko McBrain & Iron Maiden

    Last week, I went to see Iron Maiden (Hartford, CT). I had last seen them back in the 80s. They were absolutely fantastic. I'm not sure I was expecting them to be as good as they were. It was 2 hours of on your feet intensity and tons of fun. And Nicko McBrain, character that he is, was just...

    New Snare...

    Thanks to my good friend (and fellow N&C enthusiast) RickP for this one - a 5x14 Maple Solid Shell Classic. I had one of these in piano black for about 20 years. I let go of it a few years back to a forum member (can’t remember who - if you’re out there give me a shout!). It’s the only drum I...

    Small changes...

    I play a 4 piece set up these days, with drums and cymbals in the usual places. Today I made a small change. I moved the rack tom over to my right, where the ride usually goes. I moved the ride to where I’d normally place the rack tom. Although it seems strange (and my OCD is making it tough...

    State of the Snare Collection

    The snare arsenal has undergone several changes over the past 3 years or so. Yes, they all get played. First up are the Slingerlands - ‘59 Capri Pearl and it is indeed a Radio King. Next to that is another RK, a ‘49 BDP. The COB Sound King has many battle scars and is slightly out of round, but...

    For sale is a 5 x 14 solid shell tulipwood snare - gloss finish, 10 lugs, die-cast hoops. This is a great drum - I find it to be very full and lively. Tune it up high and it is like a gun shot, and tuned low (which is where I really prefer it), it has incredible depth and body. It is quite...

    OT - Depression & Anxiety

    So, like a lot of people, I usually go through a "winter blues" period right after the holidays - from January until about March or so. It has never really been something that I have not been able to plow through before, and once the weather warms up a bit I am good to go. However, this year, it...
