    Went to see a Tribute band last night (and a music garage sale earlier)

    KO.....I'm the same way. I rarely go out to see other bands because I always feel I wanna get up there and play myself. Once a drummer, always a drummer.....

    Gretsch RB Dixieland

    Great looking drum! And honestly, plenty of drummers replaced that old reknown strainer which wasn't great even when it was new.

    Free 1969 RB’s I got from a complete stranger who I just met 15 minutes prior

    I like the wrap on the right the best. I think it looks cleaner and classier. Then again, I also think Jack Klugman was a great actor.

    Slingy 3 pt. strainer replacement?

    I made the Gibraltar strainer work with my Gretsch RB shell by gently bending the arms. I used a rubber washer over the bottom leg to protect the shell

    Gary Chester Session Discography

    Guys, Does anyone have the book "New Breed" by Gary Chester? I'm trying to find out if it has his complete (or close to it) list of 14,000 sessions he played on. I have a short list, but it would great to see it fleshed out. He really was the Hal Blaine of the East Coast. He played on TONS...
