    80's music recycled

    I have noticed a lot of the younger ones ask me what the 80s were like. Some wish they could have been there. I played the Jack in the Box “Hot Mess” video and one young girl was in love! *edit: I think this song should be in my next band’s playlist!

    OT - Random conversation thread

    I beat another goalie 13-5. He had some poor defence. Mine was fantastic. I was poor on break aways, but was otherwise pretty solid. Will be wearing the Flying V Vancouver Canucks combo until I stink the entire rink out with my performance.

    20” Rogers bass drums: MAGIC

    Articulate, easy to play, great tone, punches way above its weight class. That was the main quality I remember and what brought me back home. These are gems.

    Mojo and patina or dirt and rust?

    I have cleaned the drums and hardware, and will be replacing t-rods as necessary. In the end, this is firmly a player kit. I just can’t see the necessity of making these squeaky clean, particularly since this kit was campaigned. It does look good from even five feet away. And it sounds pretty...

    I do, too! But you have to admit, there was a distinct lack of taste with that reso head graphic, no?

    This old Resonant head represents misguided and misspent youth LOL

    They won’t be there long. These are knocking the Premier concert tom kit out of the drum room!

    The repaired relationship was far more valuable; the kit was a bonus!

    Without going into the long back story, it was divine intervention that I got these back!

    Mojo and patina or dirt and rust?

    I ask this as I have been cleaning up my Champagne Sparkle 1971 Rogers kit. I know that drummers are (in general, speaking) different in their attitude towards rash, scars, rust, etc. on a drum set. Me, also being a guitar player have taken the “earned battle scars” aesthetic as cool. This...

    Put the 18” floor tom together. The heads started settling in on the 14 and 16 and WOW! This is DEFINITELY worth the effort cleaning these up, even with the bass drum not finished! Why did I wait so long?!?

    What a difference a stick makes

    How does the subtlety difference in those two sizes? Where is the weight centered on each model? What about the tip shape? So many variables…

    What a difference a stick makes

    Sticks can make a HUGE difference, between touch and play. If they have a different “touch” the play SO much differently than with other sticks.

    Keller shells

    Very few drum companies make their own shells. So chances are, Keller makes a lot of North American-based drum companies’ drum shells. DW used to use Keller shells until they made their own, for example. It seems that Nordic is starting to take a chunk out of Keller’s share, but Keller are...

    I think you will be very happy with Walopus wraps. They have some very cool stuff.
