    3 weeks now and an item purchased from a forum member has yet to be shipped ???

    And it was going nowhere although Tama CW was making every reasonable effort to get it sorted. Why should he continue to remain at the mercy of the seller?

    What about our own DanRH? Surely he counts for our purposes.

    Single standard sized vent hole or small symmetrical venting at bottom?

    Holes that small aren't going to change the sound, though. Same with comparing these holes to a standard vent. It's not like OCDP vents.

    Single standard sized vent hole or small symmetrical venting at bottom?

    I don't think it would change the sound in any way that's discernible to human ears. No way at all. Also, pressure is not being applied to the drum head at any constant rate, therefore air would not escape the drum symmetrically and would not encourage a change in sound.

    HELP: Ludwig Scarf Joint Question (1969)

    It's a good thing you passed on the kit. Those half-inch spurs would not be original to a late '60s/early '70s kit. The half-inch spurs did not come out until the late '70s. The close up of the 13 also shows some waves in the wrap to the right of the bottom lug. It could just be a trick of the...

    James Gang's Jimmy Fox Recalls Opening for Ginger Baker

    You'd think someone like Charlie Watts would understand the futility of describing someone as the best drummer, or better than someone else. Baker and Bonham come from the same musical generation and that's where their similarities end. Baker couldn't keep up with Zeppelin and Bonham would ruin...

    NYC Bar Doodles Worth Millions?

    Interesting story, but God, how I hate that style of illustration and art. Not sure how I feel about the artist saying he doesn't want the pieces sold. I wonder if the bar asked him to do it, or if he did it on his own and they were cool with it. If it's the latter, I get that it's his art and...

    James Gang's Jimmy Fox Recalls Opening for Ginger Baker

    Pretty funny that the article opens with him wanting to befriend Ginger, and Ginger giving him no more than a head nod of acknowledgment. Good article about what Baker's playing meant at the time and his influence today.

    Gigs From Hell

    I was too young to know better when I was playing my gigs from hell. In high school all the gigs in my town were easy listening dinner gigs. I was in a band that wanted to be the next Led Zeppelin, starting with our volume. Restaurants and coffee shops sure clear out quick when you open your set...

    OT: Podcasts Anyone?

    I only listen to one podcast that isn't true crime. Hardcore History (Dan Carlin does deep dives on all sorts of historical subjects; WWI, the Achaemenid Persian Empire, the 16th century Anabaptist rebellion in Muenster, and it's all fascinating) Last Podcast on the Left (serial killers, alien...

    Those blue oysters are probably post-'70, but any chance they were on this record?

    John Henry Bonham Died on this Day

    I know Bill Ward has said Bonham's death is what got him clean. He knew he and Bonzo were headed for early graves, unfortunately they couldn't both be pulled back from the brink in time.

    Uh oh. Ginger Baker Critically Ill

    Ginger's a killer drummer. He's right there at the top for me. Still, I don't know why anyone would expect the negative crap he's said over the years to not come up just because he's nearing the end. He's no killer, but people's likes and tastes are very special to them, and putting people down...

    Church drummer crushed by cross!

    So the drums come to a crashing halt, completely out of time and with no semblance of musicality, and not one of those "musicians" even noticed? How bad does a band have to suck for a member to be crushed in the middle of a song and no other player notices.
