    Keller getting out of the drum shell business ?

    Gr Gretch was also an innovator in shell manufacturing so it would be nice to see them resume the practice. They would at least then be at the same level as Ludwig and DW.

    Keller getting out of the drum shell business ?

    Ok I must have gotten the 2 confused. I love those episodes of Drum History Pod Cast.

    What have you got on order now ?

    Yep. Mom on Jan 1st and my Dad on Feb 8th. It all started mid Dec 2021 and it seemed to drag on forever. I was at the hospital almost every day for 5 weeks. The first holiday season in my life that I didn't enjoy. So I bought some drum gear to fill the void.

    C&C makes his own shells. I believe the owner acquired all the old Slingerland molds. There's videos on YT.

    Keller getting out of the drum shell business ?

    Maybe it will light a fire under their asses and they'll start building their own shells like they once did many moons ago. It would defiantly boost their credibility in the drum community by making their own shells again. Or maybe they'll have DW make their shells.

    GAS Gratitude for 2022

    My biggest acquisition of 2022 was an 18" florr tom for my Tama Starclassic Bubinga Elite kit. I found out Tama wouldn't make it anymore so when one showed up in Reverb I JUMPED on it even though it was more than I wanted to spend. I started off 2022 doing very well. I acquired one splash cymbal...

    I might have to put my list of Snares to buy on hold.... The prices are crazy!!!!

    Just get the 14 x 6.5 Aluminum model from Yamaha. I own both 14 x 5.5 and 14 x 6.5 models but if I had to choose one it would be the 14 x 6.5.

    I might have to put my list of Snares to buy on hold.... The prices are crazy!!!!

    I own the Tama Starphonic Aluminum and I'm also a Tama diehard. However if you're considering an Aluminum model go for the Yamaha Recording Custom. #1 you have 2 depth choices. #2 they come with aluminum diecast hoops which are a very rare piece of harware. You get the benefits of diecast hoops...

    I might have to put my list of Snares to buy on hold.... The prices are crazy!!!!

    If you're a keys player stay away from the high end $1000 + snares. A Tama SLP snare is more than most drummers will ever need. Especially if you're on a budget. I will put a vote in for a Ludwig Supraphonic and a Yamaha Recording Custom Aluminum model. Both models in 14 x 6.5 are sublime.

    Sorry to hear that. I lost BOTH of my parents earlier this year.

    What have you got on order now ?

    Ok add the Sabian HH 14" Medium Hats to my list. This is a new record for me. I usually but Hihats 2 pairs at a time. It just always worked out that way. So far I'm enjoying my HHX Complex and HH Dark Hats. Its early Christmas for me.

    Cast vs thick rolled snares

    All those wonderful Tama shells stripped of their hardware. Naked. How high would that pile be? Hey guys I have a MINT Imperialstar 14 x 6.5 seamless shell. Anyone got some hardware for me?

    What have you got on order now ?

    I'm waiting on a pair of new/floor model HHX 14" Complex Medium Hihats and a pair of HH 14" Dark Hats I found in MINT condition on Reverb. There's also another pair of Hihats I have my eye on. Maybe this will be a three pointer for me. Well it WAS my Birthday last month.

    Let me get this straight...

    That's funny. I just switched to Sabian. How long do I have to until I'm playing Paiste?

    Are High-End Drums a Giant Waste of Money?

    I guess customers going to a Mercedes dealership aren't looking for a 4 year old or older Mercedes. Makes sense.

    Zildjian s dark?

    I received a promo email from Zildjian. What's the point with budget cymbals. Most drummers looking for darker sounds will go for Pro line cymbals. I guess it fills a niche. Or it's a reminder to Paiste and Meinl that Zildjian COULD cut into their sales if they chose to do so.

    Let me get this straight...

    You call the bell obnoxious. I call it BEAUTIFUL! This ride pushes MY buttons to the Nth degree. Not paying $900 as it's possible to find one of the Raw Bell Dry Rides that is very similar. But this is an amazing cymbal that I hope goes onto production along with the Todd Sucherman 22" Sessions...

    Amazon deals thread

    I found a 14" Coated Vintage Emperor on Amazon last week "used" for $5 off the new price and way less expensive than the Coated Controlled Sounds. I took the chance and it looked new to me and I had no issues with the head fitting the snare. I figure I'd try something new. On a 14 x6.5" steel...

    Rototoms without the track mounts

    You could also simply tune them like a regular drum. That what I did when I had my threaded rods attached to a cymbal boom eyelet. It worked great. I wrapped the lower threaded rod with electrical tape and it held with no issues. But I do like the RIMS mount solution.
