    Let's Guess what Steve Jordan's drums..

    On one of the Winos tours he borrowed Charlie’s black nitron gretsch toms with a different BD thrown in. I suspect Keith will weigh in on the choice of drums since he likes to camp out in front of the Bass Drum!

    Let's Guess what Steve Jordan's drums..

    I wonder if he will go with the 22” BD or the smaller 20” he uses on the Clapton tours. Probably something like he used with the Winos….

    Bass Drum adder for DW Performance Bop Kit?

    I wish that was an option but DW only makes a 16x20 in the performance series. I guess I could get it cut down if I didn’t like the sound.

    Bass Drum adder for DW Performance Bop Kit?

    I was looking to buy another bass drum for my DW Performance Bop Kit - (12/14/18) to add versatility on Rock and Blues gigs. Trying to decide between the 14 x 22 or the 16 x 20. What do you think is the best choice overall for versatility and portability at gigs?

    Mid-life crisis? Starting guitar in my late 50s

    Do it. It will make you a better musician and another good hobby. I picked up the Guitar in my mid-40s and have been playing electric in a band for over 13 years. I’m 60 now and still play drums well. When you get ready old it might be the only instrument you can play.

    What Movies Used a Wrong-Period Drum Set? Add Your Favorites

    Speaking of Maxwells, I just hope this kit makes it into the Many Saints of Newark movie coming out this September. I’ve been waiting since I picked it up in NYC since 2019. And then delayed a year due to the virus.....

    Ludwig 60s vs DW

    I have a Ludwig 60's mahogany 13/16/22 and a 70's Blue Olive badge maple 13/16/22. Both 3 ply. The mahogany set is mellower a bit, same shells as Joe Morello and Ringo. The B/O maple I have gigged for 40+ years and always sounds great, Bonham, Simon Kirke, Kenny Jones type) just use some newer...

    Buddy...I was listening last night, and BAM!

    Wow! awseome one of Buddy's best. Love the cymbal work and left hand early on. Looks like early 70's blue/olive 3plys. A lot of poeple say he sounded best on Slingerlands but this sounds really good. But then I am biased. Is that a regular Supraphonic 5 x 14 or something else?

    What is the "hands down" best sounding Ludwig snare?

    My new 5x14 Black Beauty tube lug. Can’t take it out of the stand. But now I have to try a hammered bronze it looks like!

    If Drum Kits Sound So Similar - Gretsch

    And who wants to lug around diecast hoops to a gig unless you have a roadie. That’s why vintage Ludwigs have the edge. Great sound and really easy to hall.

    Guitar Playing Drummer

    Same here. I am a much better drummer but have been gigging steadily for 12 years playing guitar and vocals in classic rock bands.

    Best Recorded Overall Drum Kit Sounds

    - Charlie's snare sound from Some Girls on up has been killer in my opinion. Nice and woody crack - Beast of Burden for example. - Joe Morello - Dave Brubeck Quartet live at Carnegie Hall - Bonzo - When the Levee Breaks - Billy Martin - Shack Man and John Scofield's A-GO-Go - Thirty Days in...

    Rock Drummers who actually used Rolls

    I remember Ringo saying that he actually could not do a proper “press” role as he called it. I don’t think I ever heard him use one in the Beatles catalogue or Charlie Watts for that matter. Bonham could do it. I think it really adds another dimension to throw them in rock tunes when...
