    The Jerry Allison Appreciation Club

    Before I could walk, I would crawl to my parents Hi-Fi on the floor and play my favorite song, Peggy Sue. For years they couldn't understand how I knew which 45 record it was, so I finally told them that it was the only bright orange CORAL label in the stack. I always credited that song for me...

    How much have you spent on drum lessons?

    I had already been a professional drummer for years when I decided to take lessons. I was lucky enough to study with Murray Spivack in the late 70s' to early 80s. Because Murray didn't need the money, he would divide the rent he paid to Annex Studios in Hollywood by the number of students that...

    RIP Dale Griffin

    So Sad ... He was the master of the "half-time" power beats. He would do these amazing behind the beat fills and you would wonder if he was going to make it back by 1, but he always did. Created a great feel. Rest in Peace Buffin!

    Was Buddy Rich so good because...

    He was a freak of nature. God given talent with no relation to size. Didn't read, didn't practice, didn't read about drumming, just played better than anyone else. Blessed! -EW

    A Lot Can Change in 14 years!

    It is hard to imagine now, but in 2001 I ran the auction for this Champagne Sparkle (20,14,12 and snare) Chanute Camco set three times for $900.00 on Ebay without a bid. I finally sold it locally for $700.00. with all original heads, hardware and stands!

    Hello All, I had recently posted that I was looking for a snare to play with a lone Piper and that I would prefer a Premier Royal Scot. One of the leads lead me to a beautiful drum that needed a couple of cracked lugs replaced. I was soon lucky enough to find an ebay auction for some "Parts...

    WTB: 12 x 14 Scottish Marching Snare Drum

    Burgundy, Thank you so much for the kind offer to help with this. I only wish he would have responded earlier as I now have a couple of other deals in the works. That is a fantastic price and well below the market. When I add in shipping to California, it gets closer to some local deals...

    WTB: 12 x 14 Scottish Marching Snare Drum

    Thanks Chico, I did talk with Andrew and he is getting me a little more info on his BDP SRS 10-lug he has for sale. It has stress cracks in the lugs, so I asked him to check the shell. If it looks OK, I'm a buyer. Thanks again, -EW

    WTB: 12 x 14 Scottish Marching Snare Drum

    Thanks Benny and Chico. It is a tough decision as I will only ever be buying the one Pipe drum. To my ears from YouTube the Premier Royal Scot sounds the best. I have a slight problem playing Scottish music on a Pearl (I should get over that) even though so many recommend it. Thanks for the...
