    Gluing shells together

    I know you can, but should you glue two 8x16s to make a 16x16. The 2 halves are available and it is cheaper. Will it sound bad? Silly question but I was just wondering.

    I was looking online for some drum parts and a company was offering ( their words ) a hard wood shell similar to maple. Have you guys ever heard of tulipwood?

    It is going to have to be OK

    Living Rurally, I am certain I will not play in a band again. It is going to have to be OK that I practice alone or to music in my library. I think it is truly over. I think I will be Ok with it.

    Learning the set list

    I have been to the second audition for a band. I was assigned 5 songs for the 1st audition and we ended up doing 22. The 2nd audition we did 20 original songs. How do you guys learn all the hits and stops and a myriad of other stuff so fast. I can’t even remember the names of all the songs!

    Hearing Protection

    What do you guys recommend for hearing protection. Ear plugs seem to kill the snare sound. I am considering my chainsaw earmuffs during rehearsals and I will just hang tough for playing in public.

    I have had this set I made for over 10 years. 18 in bass. I have a set of shells with a 20 in bass. Is it a bad idea to remove all the hardware from the pictured set and use it for the new set which I would like to stain? I would then sell the blank shells. Just want something different Thanks...

    Making a snare

    Hello Everyone My very lovely Blue Agate Slingerlands came with 2 13x9 toms. 3 ply with rings. Would it Sound OK to make the extra 13x 9 into a snare. The shell is excellent. What do you guys think? 13x6. I don’t think the extra holes will bother me. The set never came with a snare. Precision...

    New Drums

    Any reports on the Rogers drums made in Covington Ohio? They are around 4000 usd but I don’t know what they’re made of. Are they just released or has this been going on awhile?

    Louie Bellson

    Was Mr Bellson and for that matter, Jeff Hamilton endorsers of Removal Drums. I think they were the Mastertouch Model. Besides money, does anyone know why they did that? I am sure all the Manufacturers made offers ( I am guessing ) . Can anyone speak to the quality of Remo Drums?
