    What Gretsch snare drum is this?

    Hi all, I purchased this Gretsch 5x12 COS snare drum some years back to go with a kid's kit I acquired. It sounds pretty good and is actually too good for the kid's kit! I haven't been able to pin down what line and model this is. I first thought it was from the Black Hawk series, but that...

    Reduction in Picture Size

    Before the launch of the new, and much improved, website, the maximum size for attached pictures was 1200x900 pixels. With the new website, picture size has been reduced to half of that, now at 600x450 pixels. This size is just much too small to show much detail of our prized drums and other...

    Jazz Fest Reissue Description Incorrect! Grrrr!

    OK, I'm just going to say it; I have a beef with Ludwig and their description of the newly released Jazz Festival! Partial text on their website says... "First introduced to the market in the 1950s as the Buddy Rich Model Snare Drum", and "the Jazzfest took on its first form in the early 1960s...

    Ludwig Weather Master 14" Heads - Price Increase

    Hi all! There are lots of us that love Ludwig's Weather Master heads. It wasn't too long ago that Ludwig made the decision to stop production of these heads, except for the 14" heads for snare drums. Yay! Their snare-side head is among the best. Sadly, I've noticed that prices for these heads...

    Uploaded picture size reduced after change to "NEW" DFO

    So, I'm going to go on a rant. Please forgive me! One of the things I liked most about DFO was that I could include pictures at the maximum permissible size of 1200x900. I found this size to offer very good clarity and detail when I posted pictures of drums and hardware, either to sell or just...

    Picture posting size now much smaller!

    Hi all! One of the things I liked most about DFO was the size pictures I could post, up to around 1200x900. This is the size I would scale my pictures to, which allowed for great detail for drums I would sell. Ever since the "new" software was launched, picture size is now limited. I haven't...
