    The Rim Riser

    I made one out of a 60's Slingy bass drum reinforcement hoop, made it adjustable so that it fit 14" snares with a 6, 8 or 10 lug config, and it was cool but really useless. Cost me nothing, though, adn I would have certainly made more had I not thrown that bass drum (& R. hoops) away....dang...

    OT: Which Is Your Favorite Led Zeppelin Album?

    Pretty compelling argument for LZ II........I didn't know it booted Abbey Road from the #1 spot!

    Does it come with the shoulder strap? Is it just the one outer pouch? Thanks.

    Austin Craigs List - Not mine but a great Gretsch Deal

    Nice kit, good price! I have a friend with this same color kit and gigs it Thurs-Sun. for a jazz gig 3+ hours/night every weekend - they still look great and the few times I've sat in sounded great. The bass is a sleeper and thumps......No comment on the hardware color, though! However, that...

    WTB: 18" gretsch shell for 12x18 vintage build out project

    Hat, I've bought 3 drums from that eBay Gretsch guy - all 14x14 - all were fine, playable and worked great. I sold two of them but still have one........

    Slingerland 1950's Super Gene Krupa (clamshell strainer) and Gene Krupa (3 pt. strainer) Radio King Snare Drum Question

    I have a late 50's in red (glass glitter) sparkle - nickel hardware - sadly, it did not come with hoops but still is a fantastic drum! I think the '90's or '00's last leg of import Slingys (or maybe the USA Conways) had "engraved" or vintage style S-hoops, but not sure if COB or COS. I do have...

    Possibly refurbishing and rebuilding Vintage Ludwig Kit: Anything specific I should know?

And take plenty of pics - before, during...

    dw True Cast bronze snare

    Bentley's is having a DW day on 11/16 - I wonder if this snare will appear?? It would be cool to play a $4K snare! I know John G. is supposed to be there with Greg Bisonnette and a "surprise guest" - unfortunately I will be out of town on a conference!

    Anyone using a flat ride???

    I have a super portable setup - 10x14 "bass", with a snare stand built in on top, and I mounted a cymbal arm. I gigged it recently for the first time with a HH and my sole cymbal was a 19" Soultone old school patina flat ride - worked perfectly for the acoustic outdoor art gallery gig I had...

    Nerves worse when you know people in the audience?

    I've played gigs for coworkers and family/friends - no big deal. I still sucked! My bigger issue is if it's YOUR retirement party, I'd be out mingling with your coworkers and have another band doing the gig! Congrats either way......

    OT: Which Is Your Favorite Led Zeppelin Album?

    LZ I. I love most of them, but LZ I came out of nowhere - between Good Times Bad Times and the intro drum fills setting the tone, blazing Communication Breakdown, epic Dazed & Confused, and dark How Many More times, the wailing guitars (yet also acoustic brilliance), thunderous bass lines, and...

    Repair this?!

    I don't see it happening, man......maybe cut it out to a 14" diameter, add some jingles and make it like one of those Dream snare cymbal thingies that Scott Pellegrom endorses......
