    70s Ludwig Peacock Oyster Pearl on Reverb

    These are not mine, and I believe it is a rewrap, but they are stunning. I don't believe I've ever seen this wrap before, (some research reveals that Ludwig's Peacock Oyster Pearl was an extremely rare wrap...for those of you who have seen it, how does this stack up to the original? Anyone know...

    COLIN BAILEY

    Last night I read on fb that Colin Bailey had passed, this is sad news for sure, but in looking on the web for additional info (including his fb page <not really updated in a while anyway> or his website) I'm unable to find anything more about this. MD's search window only brings up an early...

    ANYONE SEE THE "GRETSCH DRUMS.US" SCAM AD FLOATING AROUND SOCIAL MEDIA?

    Surprised this made it to facebook. Nefarious language in the ad, once you click on the ad it opens to a page that looks very much like the real Gretsch home page. same photos, graphics etc... Yet very little other narrative. Many people may not catch the "gretschdrums.us address (no mention...

    Elvis Presley - Aloha From Hawaii, Live in Honolulu, 1973

    Caught a reshowing of this the other night on a PBS station. Elvis live from Hawaii in 1973. This is the pre-bloated, Vegas caricature Elvis where he is in good shape and sounds great. Although he kind of phones it in on some of his older tunes, he blows the doors off a lot of songs as well...

    Glenn Miller's last flight

    For some of you that are interested, December 15th marks the anniversary of Glenn Miller's disappearance. Over the years there have been many theories posed that might explain the mystery (some more plausible than others). A friend of mine hosts a YouTube Channel related to WW2 History, this...

    Boat Trailer "bunk" carpet for relining drum cases?

    Any boaters/Jet Skiers here familiar with the texture of trailer bunk carpet? I’ve got 7 1980s fiber drum cases (10” through BD size). All of the foam interiors have deteriorated. It is a mess, made a mess of my drums too. I’ve since cleaned the drums, but it will be a weekend project just...

    FLAT JACKS IN ELVIS' SPEEDWAY?

    This morning the Elvis movie "Speedway" was on (w Nancy Sinatra and Bill Bixby) I usually watch for the musical numbers to see what drums are shown. While I've seen this one before I didn't recall that the drummer in the "house band" was playing an unusual kit. Would these be Flat Jacks from...

    MOTU 896 mk3 BLACK LION MOD- A GOOD INVESTMENT?

    This is related to the home recording threads, particularly recent ones mentioning the MOTU 896. I have the MOTU 896k mk3 (both firewire and USB ). I am NOT unhappy with the built in pre-amps on it but I have been considering the Black Lion upgrade for that unit. I’ve read on various...

    SCORPIONS WIND OF CHANGE PODCAST

    Has anyone listened to the Scorpions “Wind of Change” podcast? (I was looking for the thread but it seems to have disappeared). When I was growing up the Scorps were one of my favorite bands (although more I’m partial to their stuff during the Roth era). By the time “Wind of Change” was a big...

    Tony Levin-On the Drums

    Interesting piece Tony Levin has put together that mentions all (or a lot of) the drummers he has played with... After watching this, I kind of wonder who hasn't he played with?
