    K Constantinople hihat?

    (Good) news about Regal Tip!!(?)

    On Friday I played a jazz gig at the local spot in Buffalo, Pausa Art House. We had a wonderful night, part of which was improved by Carol Calato, daughter no.1 and one of the presidents of the Regal Tip company. I showed her that I was still playing Regal Tio Jazz and the 583r brushes. Last...

    I’m interested in successful head combinations for a wrapped (orig BDP) 14x22 Gretsch round badge bass drum to be used in a pop/rock/show context. I really need pro advice here on what will give me the “sound”. I usually don’t use this drum but I have gigs coming where it will be in service...

    Brian Blade! What!!? Is that cracked K, other cymbals and music...

    Great video of a live concert by this immense group. Blade is smacking that cracked K with the rivets. Looks like the far right cymbal is a K con. Its so inspiring to see how all of these musicians find their place in the music and complement each other so well. Improvisationally!!
