    These brushes are kicking my butt

    Man, I thought I was just going to pick those ol brushes up and kick butt. I mean how hard can it be? Haha! Was I fooled! Not easy at all, and I'm still struggling with them. I can't seem to figure out how fast my left hand should be sweeping on the snare to a given song. I mean, how do you...

    No offence meant, but if you want something that looks like a Range Rover, but can't afford one, and if you don't care that Kia has basically little history in auto making, you'll be drawn to a Telluride.

    I guess I am old but I find this puzzling

    Spot on. There are to many threads and posts on what we should or shouldn't talk about. This is a forum and anything within the rules should be discussed. If you don't want to read the ones complaining about service, then move on. If a thread isn't popular, it will die on its own, but my guess...

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

    Yeah, nice tight white stiched Jordache jeans, Cappezzio shoes and a waist high leather jacket with the satin shirt buttoned way down and the collar over the top, 10 gold chains hanging. I remember it well, unfortunately....but hey, we did what we had to do for the girls!!! :icon_lol:

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

    BITD, you either loved disco or hated it. Many musicians and band members thought it was the death of music, like the end! And maybe in some ways it was. It was danceable, like swing was, and rock was more for listening, like be bop. I was a guitar player back then and I know I despised it. I...

    I don't think Yamaha ever had a reputation problem that I'm aware of. They never went through the stencil kit era that Pearl and Tama did, and they were always well respected for pianos, guitars, keyboards etc. Tama and Pearl did have to claw there way to respectability though, but I think...

    Love the Kia/Hyundai comparison. Come to America, sell just enough mediocre, throw-away cars and eventually you can make some quality stuff. My only problem with that is it will always be a Kia, who will always sell cars from $15K to 80K and your left explaining to friends that "hey, it's the...

    Extreme OT: 30 ROCK

    Excellent show. The humor is machine gun quick and funny. The cast might be the best since Seinfeld as well. I still really enjoy the show. To bad Alec won't lighten up. I did construction in Manhattan in front of his building and he was never friendly to anyone that I saw. He always looked so...

    Buckaroo Cymbal Polish?

    Looks great. I'm a big fan of Barkeeper's Friend for cymbals. The foam is the one I use though because it's less abrasive than the powder. Good stuff.

    Buckaroo Cymbal Polish?

    Yes, that's the name I couldn't remember, Nevr Dull! Made by Eagle Products. And yes, it looks exactly the same, the wodding material and all.

    Buckaroo Cymbal Polish?

    I use something similar to that Buckaroo stuff on my vintage watch cases and bands and any metal that can tarnish or fade. I forget the name right now, something Eagle, but the wadding looks very similar and I'll bet the formula they use is also similar. It really brings back the luster. I...

    How long till Ebay has Myspace type tumble weeds rolling around?

    I know things change, but I really miss the original format, bidding on stuff against other's. It could be exciting and frustrating, but it was always fun. Now its almost all Buy It Now and almost all new items, which I guess is where the money is. I can't remember the last item I actually bid on.

    Simple question: did Buddy Rich actually use the signature sticks Vic Firth makes?

    When I bought my set, I didn't know as much about sizes as I do now. So I actually did go more by the name on the stick than I did the size or dimensions. I naively figured that a jazz player like BR wouldn't use sticks that big, but they are! That's why as a relative newbie, I felt ripped...

    Simple question: did Buddy Rich actually use the signature sticks Vic Firth makes?

    I ordered a pair awhile back and as soon as I got them I thought that there was no way these could have been used by Buddy. Thanks for this thread that confirms that. These sticks are huge, heavy and white for some reason. I am doubtful that even Buddy's super-strong playing could move these...
