    Any Tama 1st Chair users? Roc n soc hugger?

    The Roc n Soc Hugger refers to the seat. It's just a slimmer version of their tractor/saddle seat (I have two of them and like them). But they aren't round.

    Bring on the funk!

    "Too hot in the hot tub!" (one of my favorite SNL skits) :icon_lol: Funk-rockers Mother's Finest. One of my bands opened for them. They were super nice to us and brought the house down.

    OT: if DISCO isn't something you care much for..

    Dennis Bryon is severely under-rated, IMO. I've always loved his groove on Nights on Broadway. His book, You Should Be Dancing: My Life with the Bee Gees, is on my to-read list.

    How About Songs w/Ride Cymbals That We Liked?

    I'm obsessed with this band right now, partly because of the ride. LOL! My guess is it's a 22" Kerope Medium? I'm a Paiste freak, but I love this. Chris Powell on drums.

    Ear protection- what do you use?

    For non-molded, I use Earasers and buy the -26db version through their website (-19db is their "standard"). They also offer a maximum -31db filter. I've found them to be the most comfortable OTC earplug. I don't feel them at all. For custom molded, I use Dream Earz acrylic earplugs and also...

    Yes, this is the difference in sound between 1.6mm and 2.3mm hoops.

    Finished My Comparison of 60's Supraphonic to 2020 Version

    Likely 1.6mm hoops on the 60s Supra, which are lighter than the 2.3mm that come on the new ones.

    High frequency overtones?

    I hear it in #2, 3, and 4, when you're using the VF 5A. So if it's your stick, that's an easy change.

    Foot Work

    Such a killer drum track! My older brother used to play their albums. I loved them. Years ago, I made one of my bands play Tighten Up Your Wig. So fun!

    Loved this! Gregg is a trip! I really enjoyed meeting him and attending his clinic at the Chicago Drum Show. One of my favorites.

    Anyone else been impulsively buying and selling cymbals lately?

    So far: 2 rides, 3 crashes, a pair of hi-hats, 3 snare drums. And I have my eye on 2 more crashes, a snare, and a 3-piece kit. Don't tell my husband.

    Thank you for all your input! I'm considering everything you've mentioned. Yes, this is a very different project that's a lot of fun. @CC Cirillo - good idea about the Pioneer, thanks!

    Hats and ride for a banjo-rock, grass-rock band?

    I've started playing with an all-female "banjo-rock/grass-rock" band (which is how our singer is describing it, LOL). We have one player who either plays banjo, mandolin, or acoustic guitar, depending on the song; one player on keys; 3-part vocal harmonies, and we're adding a bassist soon. Not...

    OT: Your Favorite War Movies

    Die Weisse Rose We watched it in my high school German class, way back when. I then visited Germany twice (before and right after the wall came down) as part of an exchange program, lived with German families. When I went to Munich, I made sure to go to the University where much of the story...
