    Opinions please - New Yamaha Stage Custom Steel or Used Mapex Daisy Cutter

    Same dimensions - would cost about the same I just want a new snare to replace the stock model that came with my old Tama Stagestar kit, which I use for small gigs. I play classic pop, lighter rock, and funk. Looking for versatility at a lower cost. I keep an eye on the used section here...

    OT: Your Favorite Live Album?

    17-11-70 (11-17-70) Elton John, Dee Murray, Nigel Olsson At the time of the performance, it was never intended to be released, but bootleg versions were so popular... His raw, live work was a fascinating counterpoint to the more subdued orchestral pop vibe of his studio work.

    OT: Boat sale gone bad. Need feedback.

    It's kind of you to offer to split costs on the repair. Without further information, it sounds as if it's unfortunate for the purchaser for the motor to do this so quickly, but that's not on you. If I were the purchaser, I'd have the motor serviced before it goes on the water , especially if...

    US customs sales for a drum bought in Canada?

    Coming the other way, there is not supposed to be any duty on musical instruments. If the item is new, you may be required to pay HST (harmonized sales tax).

    If Bonham was in Toto...

    I've always thought that Rod Stewart's 'Hot Legs' chorus would sync with 'Rockin' Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu' I wanna jump but (Hot legs, you're wearing me out) I wanna holler (Hot legs, make me scream and shout) Jump (hot legs) rhythm got a hold on me too (I love ya honey!) and the...

    Tama Stagestar Kit (saved by The Drum Dr.)

    I own a set of Stagestars (snow white pearl...whoo) and they are a great practice kit. I've even gigged with them for a small venue. The wood snare is, predictably, a weak point but it can be modded a bit by adding shellac to the interior and swapping out the snares.

    Are You a Bad Drummer? Nashville Bass Player Exposes Tell Tale Signs

    Straight amateur drummer here...but I can count! From my experience, that makes me an exception among many other amateur guitarists and vocalists. Coming in correctly off a bridge seems to be a real challenge for some. And they seem completely oblivious. So, who adjusts? Sigh...drop to just...

    OT: What Is Your Favorite LIVE Album?

    Elton's 17-11-70 (11-17-70) An epic, raw, soulful set of jams. Three musicians treading the line between precision and abandon. His other (official) offering, Here and There, is interesting to fans, but iffy sound quality (especially the MSG side) and no memorable versions of the catalogue.
