Just finished watching; “Madonna and The Breakfast Club.” On HULU. Just, a kind of beautiful, poignant, well done documentary of the early life and career of Madonna Ciccone.
She had left Michigan for New York, met a fellow named Dan Gilroy and moved into an abandoned Synagogue with...
I’m looking for random pars for the 80-85 Tama Mastercraft snare.
Perhaps you have some orphans sitting in your parts bins and don’t recall why.
These parts would be the muffler, the rollers for the extended wire system, the blocky throw off, the protruding butt plate and the first...
I’ve been going through my drum parts trying to organize and re-familiarize.
I came across a bag of older parts and within that bag a few things stuck out.
I said to myself; well that’s kind of interesting so here they are.
Anyone want to take a crack at identify them?
Perhaps you have an...
Anyone looking for a 14” x 12” Brilliant Champagne Square Badge Delite floor tom?
This is a clean conversion from hanging to floor with
legs and prisms from stdrums. No extra holes.
Pretty clean. A few minor blemishes that may or may not rub out. I don’t know and didn’t try.
Hello DFO friends. I’m looking for the three main CDs from the band Brainiac.
Maybe you have them and don’t listen to them anymore or burned them to digital and the CDs are just sitting around or perhaps you can just burn them for me?
I have cash, PayPal, all kinds of drum gear and parts, an...
This is clearly off topic, even for this forums standards but has anyone else noticed this.
I scan Facebook marketplace regularly for certain items I am after and to sell stuff for pocket money and recently I have noticed that our areas “For Sale” “Yard Sale” and “Marketplace” groups are...
The Grunge/Alternative scene became synonymous with Seattle Washington but several of its's most popular bands hailed from Los Angelos, the most Avant-garde of which was Jane's Addiction.
Two anecdotes concerning Janes Addiction. When I was in my teens in a garage band we were in need of a new...
Released on April of 1991, Temple of the Dog was a one off dedicated to deceased lead singer of Mother Love Bone; Andrew Wood. The band's members would go on to form two of the most iconic bands of the era, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden For drummers, it is a real treat in that we get to listen to...
This fella popped up on my Vintage Tama forum selling a very cool snare. I checked out his profile and this YouTube video popped up.
Is it just me or could this young man go out on tour with Liefson and Lee on the spot?
After years of trying out different snares I settled on simple plywood snares being best for me.
I have a decent snare collection, nothing to turn heads. Some of my favorites are the Vintage Tama Mastercraft Rosewoods.
These are getting pretty hard to come by and pretty expensive for a...
I’m hoping to get turned on.
dsop posted a great video in the recent Steve Smith doing Steve Smith things thread that I though was just great.
I knew Smith has been studying some form of Indian drumming and have even made good natured sport of his vocalizations but it is really paying off...
I was playing “When The Levee Breaks” this morning; just reveling in how beautiful a groove it is.
I went off to do something else and my subconscious must have been working it over because the next thing I know I’m thinking; that groove really sounds like 6/8 to me, I’m going to go...
I saw these pop up on my feed. I don’t know anything about Hayman Drums but immediately loved everything about the look of these drums, especially the lugs and the badge which make or break a drum for me.
Also, I think the bass drum mounted tom holder is a real work of art. Such great lines.
...every piece of drum gear you own for exactly what you paid for it, no exceptions, and start over, would you do it?
The whole lot would instantly disappear as soon as you said yes and the sum total would be in your PayPal account.
