    OT What series to watch ???

    I can see that. It took a minute to get into it, but once it “clicked” I was hooked. Helps to be a Timothy Olyphant fan too.

    Flying Colors. Never heard of them. Where have I been?

    Never heard of them! Very cool. Thank you for introducing me to the group. Why don’t more people know about these guys? What a find.

    Afraid to practice because people might hear me

    I watched a Victor Wooten video about this. He is an amazing musician and cool human being. Best advice on this topic that I have ever heard.

    Afraid to practice because people might hear me

    What a cool story! Good for you and congratulations on getting free from the “You Suck” voice. I still carry my “you suck” voice with me unfortunately. The cure is getting lost in the music and the moment. When I play with other people and that magic thing happens when we all bring a song to...

    Afraid to practice because people might hear me

    I suffer from this too. Reading all of these posts has done my heart good. I was a female drummer when I was young and I was very self conscious because I obviously stood out from all of the male drummers. Before there were mesh heads and "quiet" cymbals I just put towels over the drum heads...

    Slingerland Gene Krupa Sound King: How Bad Did I Get Cheated?

    Thank you! I am really enjoying the drum. I can't practice as much as I should (arthritis) but when I do get a few minutes it is a joy.

    Slingerland Gene Krupa Sound King: How Bad Did I Get Cheated?

    I am not on Facebook, but I appreciate the offer. Now I remember why the drumming community is so cool. Thank you for everyone's kind words of wisdom. PayPal sided with me on this one and refunded all of my money. Then they went after him and froze the $250 I paid him. He has two billing...

    Slingerland Gene Krupa Sound King: How Bad Did I Get Cheated?

    I appreciate all the input. I had a Ludwig Supraphonic '68 for years and was in hog heaven. Then the arthritis kicked in and I had to give up drumming. I miss it a lot. I sold the Supraphonic to a gigging drummer that always wanted one and I knew he would play it live and enjoy it. But...

    Slingerland Gene Krupa Sound King: How Bad Did I Get Cheated?

    This is an 8 lug snare drum. He promised to include the original snare wires with the drum, but he didn't. I think I am holding him to a higher standard because he told me that he has been buying and selling drums for 30 years. So he definitely should have been able to take a look at the...

    Slingerland Gene Krupa Sound King: How Bad Did I Get Cheated?

    So the badge looks like it should? I couldn't tell if someone had pried off the original and replaced it with one of the older ones they sell on EBAY or Reverb. The guy was so sketchy that I didn't know what to think after awhile. At the price of original 60's tension rods I thought he might...

    Slingerland Gene Krupa Sound King: How Bad Did I Get Cheated?

    I have been looking for a Slingerland Gene Krupa Sound King and I thought I found one on EBAY. The serial number was 148213, it had 1960s hardware, was in good condition, and the owner told me it was all original. He said that the only thing that wasn't original was the snares, but not to...
