    To Rivet or Not To Rivet. That is the question. ;)

    Why not try a chain or some other "add-on rivet" thingie on it to confirm that rivets won't alter the crash sound in a way you don't like. BTW, that's a very nice-sounding cymbal just like it is.

    Nick Mason at 78 still delivers the goods!

    Looking at the photo of Nick speaking from behind the kit I can't help but think how much sexier those drums would look without that rack in front of them. :shock: (I'm a putz, what can I say...)

    Friday Five-Fer - Buddy Rich Interactive

    A-ha! It was your thread from two years ago is where I originally found out about this solo. I owe you a debt of thanks, as I've enjoyed and gotten inspiration from it countless times since you first brought it to our attention.

    Friday Five-Fer - Buddy Rich Interactive

    This gets my vote for "Most Atypical Buddy Rich Solo on the Internet". The audio is strictly "single video-camera mic all the way at the back of the auditorium", so it requires a bit of concentration. But your efforts will be rewarded by over nine minutes of: "Wow, I've never seen Buddy play a...

    What more could I possibly want?

    After seeing that you play a 16/10/13, what you need isn't a 24-inch cymbal, what you need is a 24-inch bass drum! ;)

    Music Today Is About Cost Cutting

    Those days were gone as soon as Napster hit it big in the '90s. This shift from artists being able to make money on recordings to artists having to rely on playing live to make money has been happening for nearly 30 years now. But the change in session player earnings that @Whitten refers to is...

    Need help with Ludwig snare overtones...

    I have a Ludwig LB416BT brass-on-brass Black Beauty and the stock Ludwig head didn't last but a few minutes before I swapped it out for a Remo. In this case I used a Fiberskyn3 FA (10ml mylar + 3ml coating), which I find produces the perfect combination of dry attack and musical overtones on...

    The Making of Led Zeppelin's In Through The Out Door Episodes 1-7

    I just finished watching all seven episodes, and except for some fluff in the last one, I didn't find it tedious at all. In fact I found it a well-researched and well-presented story told by someone who has great passion for the subject.

    Are High-End Drums a Giant Waste of Money?

    The fact that the room mic tracks on DCP videos show not that much difference between different drums speaks less to the lack of actual difference between those drums, and more to the inability of microphones to hear tonal and dynamic subtleties as clearly as our ears do.
