    The Sublime Al Foster

    If anyone else streamed Small's last night, they saw a superb rhythm section: George Cables(b.11/14/44), Ron Carter(b.5/4/37 & Al Foster(b.1/18/43) They were in full control and ageless, as is the music they played! The leader, saxophonist Tim Ries merited their company... as did Gregoire Maret...

    Attn. Zenstat: Various Trans stamp types

    I thought it might be worth starting a new thread on the topic. These images were made with the incomparable Nikkor 55mm Micro lens (purchased new in 1971) mounted on a Nikon D 80 digital camera. As the stamps differ slightly in detail, perhaps Zenstat could establish a time frame for them. 1...

    Does anyone have experience removing a stain from a calf head? I was thinking of applying a diluted bleach solution with a q tip. I just acquired this head. it's in excellent condition and I'd hate to mess it up trying to erase a minor cosmetic flaw. The drum sounds even better than it did with...

    What became of Mike Terrani?

    Many here will remember Mike. He was a frequent poster on DFO with a passion for vintage drums, an arcane knowledge of drums and drummers, as well as many opinions which he freely expressed. He had a blog about drums and drumming. My google search came up empty. Ron

    22" Agop Signature Ride, 1739g

    My newest edition to the Agop collection... weighing 1737g, it's extremely thin for a 22. The seller's demo here is quite accurate in conveying its qualities: Ron

    20" TOSCO; 2014g

    Fortunately, the seller misstated the weight. It was listed at 4 lbs but it turned out to be 4.5 lbs. Had he stated it correctly, I would probably not have bid and missed out on a nice cymbal! Ron
