    hello all: I have some old and VERY HEAVY Yamaha PA cabs. They sound great but weigh 62lbs. I just do not want to lug them around anymore. I keep looking at the Carvin LM15 cabs...molded plastic, a 15" and a horn. Can get 'em shipped to me for about $540 a pair. Anybody using these? I...

    LUDWIG COB LB402 QUESTION....Latter Day Ludwig Experts??

    Hey, that's the drum I'm talking about...this is the drum that the seller claims has no BRASS EDITION oval badge, plus the seller is pretty cloudy about specifics... PLUS he calls it an LM402 when it is supposed to be an LB402... PLUS he keeps relisting the auction saying he does not have...

    Have u tried EVANS Hydraulic tom heads?

    Thanks for the Attack suggestion, Tommy. I have some regular coated attacks on my Slingerland set and they work nicely. Might have to give the Attack 2 ply's a try.........

    Have u tried EVANS Hydraulic tom heads?

    Well, we all pretty much agree that hydraulics are too dead, but what is the LIVELIEST 2 ply head? I am setting up a couple of toms for rock playing (most of my stuff is single ply coated Amb, Attack or Evans, tuned for jazz, but I need some rock toms) and I want a double ply sound with some...

    LUDWIG COB LB402 QUESTION....Latter Day Ludwig Experts??

    Hey, any LDLE's out there (LATTER DAY LUDWIG EXPERTS)? I am looking at some pics of a COB LB402 for a possible purchase...large Monroe badge #3,4xx,xxx but no BRASS EDITION oval badge. Did the first batch of these not have the BE badge? Also, did these drums have a "B" stamped anywhere? Any...

    Hello All: I need to transfer my approx 10,000 songs from my WMP (Windows Media Player, Vista OS) to an ipod type device. I am looking for something that is the most "Windows compatible", can hold about 12,000 songs and has the largest screen available. Would most of these devices have some...

    could this be a dynasonic?

    I got to interview Ben Strauss a few times back in day when he lived in Scottsdale and we discussed early Dynas at length. Ben said that the move to the thin 3 ply sharp edge Keller shell (about mid 1961?) was partly due to the fact that the Dyna was coming into production at that time. Rogers...

    What's your local drum store like?

    Local drum shop?? Please correct me if I am wrong, Arizona Drum Brothers, but I believe there are NO 100% strictly drum shops in Arizona. The only decent sized music store here in Prescott AZ is AZ Drum and Music, a kind of mini-GC with lots of low-mid line electrics (Dean, Schecter, Ibanez)...

    OT - what are you driving?

    1992 Mazda B2200 pickup that I bought new, white...super gigmobile, EZ loading, 28 mpg, still looks pretty good... BUT not great in the snow. Luckily it only snows 5.3 times per year here in Prescott. Totally primitive, 2 bbl carb, distributor, crank windows, the old cassette player just...

    Removing dents from reso haed

    I've been removing dents for years. Ironing will not work. Steam will not work. Matches are very limited, and are an easy to melt a hole right thru the head, especially on snare reso heads. Two words...HEAT GUN. I have an EZPOWER 1500 watt gun, basically a supercharged hair dryer. I clean...

    Don't let the nay-sayers get to you. The Ludwig spun alloy shell is one of the best drum shells ever made and the fact that the acro is only 8 lugs does NOT automatically make it worse sounding than a Supra. I have a 1971 Standard...same basic shell as the acro but without the bead, 5x14 8...

    Rogers snare prices.

    Ah, the dreaded POODER2! First off, a Cleveleland made snare is technically a little more desirable than a flat gray interior Dayton just because it is a little older, but no big deal. The only real difference is the name on the tag...drums from both eras were made in the same factory...

    got ur AARP card ?

    Hotels and Motels will always give discounts....AARP, AAA, whatever. I always say I have AARP and they never ask to see the card. Maybe their insurance is a good deal (they actually turnd me down once) but the Hotel thing ain't no big shakes.
