    60s Ludwig Downbeat Re-wrap Decision

    Tough call, but my vote would be WMP, if the wrap looks good.

    Does anyone else NOT like 16" floor toms?

    14, 16, 18 FT…all have their place. I have some of each. The 18 FT is a pain to carry around, but it’s nice for a big sound.

    The merits of multiple snare drums

    To add onto the discussion, for me, it boils down to two basic sounds. One crisp and responsive snare. Another lower and perhaps muffled sound. Realistically, those two sounds are what I want.

    I don't own a metal snare. Should I?

    Your Johnny C snare is an amazing drum. I have one too. But a metal might be a nice addition. I’d stick with something classic like a brass or aluminum. Probably a 5”.

    The merits of multiple snare drums

    I think if one wanted a variety, you could have two Ludwig top shelf metal drums in different sizes. Those are flexible. Then a 6.5 high quality maple…Craviotto…otherwise a stock DW Collectors maple would by my choice for a ply shell. Those are well made. Then if you want to get crazy, a few...

    The merits of multiple snare drums

    I have too many and could probably live with two.

    Zak Starkey on Who Tour - Pads for Cymbals

    Agree about the V drums. Frankly, half the point of that band is that great raw drum sound. I played V drums for awhile at a church, and eventually, they came around to using real drums. Made all the difference. I will never ever play another gig using electric drums. (I don’t have to). We...

    Favorite jazz trio albums

    Looking for some good trio stuff. Any suggestions? I’m big on Bill Evans already, but would like hear some other good ones.

    Bass drum exercises

    I’ve mainly played heel up, just since it’s easier. But I met a well known teacher once, and he told me to learn both ways.

    In search of Jimmy Cobb ride

    But also keep in mind that some old Ks had a prettier sound too. They weren’t all super complex sounding.

    Bass drum exercises

    Some good suggestions so far. Heel down is a challenge, which is why it will prove helpful for me.

    In search of Jimmy Cobb ride

    I believe it was a 20” old k with a few rivets. I met him once and saw him play. We got to chat a little about cymbals, and he definitely had old Ks at one point that he loved. He mentioned that they were stolen. When I saw him play, he said that he picked out some cymbals that sounded like...

    Bass drum exercises

    What do you guys work on for bass drum technique? I’d like to eventually work on heel down, which I’ve yet to master.

    I can't get my Supra to not sound like Bonham.

    I went through a phase when I wanted the Bonham sound, and I was able to get somewhat close I guess. It was a newer B stock, in which I eventually sold. Later on I picked up another one but I simply set it up different with some muffling. Used a bit more medium tuning, and I’ve got it sounding...

    Don’t like 15 hi hats.

    14 through 17. They’re all my favorite…but typically I like 15s over the 14s.
