    Mike Mangini.

    Saw Dream Theater last night (I have only recently become a fan). Mike Mangini is an absolute beast (the entire band, for that matter). Such precision and other-worldly technique. A true pleasure to watch.

    New Year Drumming Resolutions...

    We all make New Year's Resolutions (lose weight, exercise, stop smoking, etc..), but what are some of your drumming goals for the year? I have a few: 1) Continue taking lessons - I have had a few lessons with jazz drummer, Bob Meyer, over the past year. We have been working on some specific...

    Tony Williams...

    I have had the past week of, and have been doing a fair amount of listening and relaxing. I have been on a Tony Williams kick lately, revisiting some things I have not listened to in quite a while, and all very different. Here's what I've gone through: Angel Street Civilization Foreign Intrigue...

    New Snare Day!

    This one is a “grail” snare for me. 1930s Radio King, acquired from my friend Bob Meyer (he’s playing it in the pictures). All the hardware is original to the drum, but at some point in its life, modern lugs we’re put on, resulting in slightly elongated holes under these (the original) lugs...

    **SOLD** Amedia 19" Ride

    Amedia Cymbals Dervish Series 19” Ride and 17” Crash. These are Turkish cymbals very earthy and on the heavy side (I don’t have weights on either of these). This is how the Dervish line of cymbals looks right out of the box - these are not stained or blemished in any way. I love the ride -...

    *SOLD* Noble & Cooley Alloy Classic

    Here is a 4.75x14 Alloy Classic. This shell dates back to 2001, and is in excellent condition - no issues at all. In 2017, I had the original powder coated hardware replaced (they were chipping badly) with black chrome by Nick Jones at N&C. It has the N&C cam action wires, which work very well...

    *SOLD* WFL Duco Pioneer

    For sale is a late 50s (to the best of my knowledge) WFL Pioneer. Great drum, and a great color. I would not say it’s a rare finish, but I haven’t seen too many this color. A couple of dings in the paint, not u common for these snares. Mahogany interior, P83, chrome is in good shape. $250 shipped.

    LTE3/Portnoy

    During the pandemic, I fell down the Neal Morse Band/Transatlantic/Flying Colors/Sons of Apollo rabbit hole. I have really grown to like Mike Portnoy's playing in all of these bands. I find him very musical and tasteful, even when he's hitting hard. The new LTE3 album is quite a display of chops...

    The Joy of Playing Drums...

    Over the past year, I have been able to do a lot of deep listening to so much music. I have bought tons of CDs (yes, I still buy CDs when I can find them) and downloaded so many iTunes albums that I haven't yet gotten around to listening to some of it. This has led to a lot of inspired drumming...

    Vinnie Appice

    Just listening to some 80s metal this morning and was reminded just how great Vinnie Appice is. He had a way to swing these heavy tunes that was so much more musical than other drummers at that time, IMO. Such a powerhouse.

    Covid!

    Well, as careful as I have been since this pandemic started (yes, I'm one of those people who has stayed in, taken every precaution, etc..), I just recovered from Covid. It started as a mild fever and fatigue on January 18th, and progressed to 17 straight days of high fevers, intense aches...

    New Snare Day...

    Well, thanks to Murat up at Drummer’s Hangout for the great deal on this one (and thank you, Rick) - I picked up the new version of the Gadd Signature snare. It represents a grail of sorts to me. Early opinions - it’s fantastic. And not surprisingly - it sounds like Gadd (the DRUM - certainly...

    Morning Rehearsal....

    Well, there have been no gigs since March - none at all. Even the weekly church gig is shut down until further notice. However, my guitarist and I have been getting together weekly to just play and learn some new music - mostly jazz. To be honest, I have been enjoying it just as much (well...

    The One Piece Of Gear You'll Never Part With...

    Since 2012, when I really became interested and obsessed with vintage drums, I have been on a tear. I have bought and sold several great vintage drum sets from Slingerland and Rogers, as well as snare drums from all eras (Slingerland, Rogers, Ludwig, N&C, TRS, Pfeifer). I love the drums and...

    Here’s another great drum, made by Daren Pfeifer. 9 ply Purple Heart in a unique “night fade” finish. Flanged hoops, 3 position Trick strainer. Nice bright tone. It’s got N&C wired on it now but I do have the Puresounds it came with. No issues. $250 shipped.

    Your Signature Sound

    The thing that has always drawn me to certain drummers is not necessarily technique, but sound. Some (perhaps most?) drummers just have a very distinctive sound, and you just know who is playing as soon as you hear the music. John Bonham, Charlie Watts, Buddy, Phil Collins, Art Blakey, Ringo...

    The “Perfect” Drum Set...

    So, Rick’s post on a dream snare inspired me to start this thread. I really love the drums I am playing right now, but I also have my favorite pieces of the different drum sets I have played over the years. If you could piece together the perfect drum set from all the drums you’ve played over...
