    I was exposed to their music at a young age via my sister - Equinox, Grand Illusion, etc. I appreciated those songs and was especially taken by DDY's keyboard prowess. Fast forward a "few" years.

    Great recorded drum sounds

    So many great examples on this thread and so many that could be named. I always thought that Neil Peart got a tremendous drum sound on the Power Windows record. Huge tone with a strong attack.

    finally Dave Weckl on a real drum set :)

    Stellar kit and performance! Clearly not Buddy’s kit though - no towel on the 2nd floor tom :)

    Stick/hand control

    I think so, here and there in smaller formats. They still get some airplay as well. There are actually lots of opportunities to play around here when the weather is nice - lots of outdoor places. If things stay open through the summer, I’ll have about 30 shows through October.

    Stick/hand control

    Hope this helps you: According to Tommy Igoe (and I would agree), most of us will always have a weaker hand. The idea is to get your weaker hand to do what you want it to do, not necessarily create an equal to your stronger hand. Something helpful (for me anyway) that I’ve done in the past is...

    Did anyone ever play in Marching Bands?

    A few years in high school on snare drum. We had a lot of fun had a few adventures as well, typically taking place on weekend nights :)

    Info on this pearl snare please.

    Do the magnet test to ascertain if its brass or steel. I have the steel version, mid to late 1979s. Good sounding snare.

    Pearl MLX 80s 90s

    One of my kits is an early 1980s MLX in black lacquer inside and out, no stretch lugs. It is a workhorse kit that I’ve had for a very long time. It’s been all over the country and overseas, and has held up incredibly well - still sounds and looks great.
