    Interesting Ludwig Development - 5" Acrolite no longer 8 lugs...

    Forumites and geeks in the know prefer an 8-lug snare (as I do). But I bet the rest of the world that buys new drums wants 10-lugs.

    Doug Clifford has a "new" album out

    Thanks for sharing. It's amazing how much Doug held back (or was forced to) with CCR. I had no idea he had chops and a range of style beyond what was represented on CCR records. Adds to the big respect I already have for his accomplishments and impact on my own playing.

    Slingerland Field Snare found online...

    I recently sold a 1963 Legion Heir in very good condition, all original, for $175 on eBay. Originally listed for $225 but I slowly reduced the price until finally accepting an offer after being listed for 2 months. It could make a cool rack tom and I had it set up that way on my practice set for...

    For Charlie Watts

    My tribute from a couple of weeks ago. Strange angles are distortions by the camera, not how I set up my drums.

    Pirateship.com who has details on how this works?

    I do nearly 50 eBay transactions every month as a "thrift store flipper". The flipping community uses and endorses Pirate Ship on a regular basis. Their discounted UPS rates used to be less expensive from eBay's but now they are the same since eBay negotiated a better rate. It it totally...

    Anyone used Pirateship for shipping?

    I use it all the time. It's legit.

    My best drum buddy has an old Pearl Hi-Hat stand that needs a bushing for the mid section. See the attached photos (screen shots from his text). Thanks for looking.

    Victor J. LaPage cymbal

    I think I scanned this Victor J. La Page ad from an old MD Magazine.

    Remember the Beatles launching on Ed Sullivan? Here is a good chuckle :)

    I didn't catch the debut performance but I saw their picture in the newspaper some days after. I also thought they had haircuts that looked like Moe from the Three Stooges and I wondered why. I was 10 years old at the time.

    ebay.. OFFER RECEIVED...

    I sell a lot on eBay flipping thrift store and estate sale items, an average of 50 transactions per month. Sellers can send offers to watchers, with 5% being the minimum discount offer. Sellers also have the option of allowing for counteroffers or not. It's anonymous, the seller does not know...

    Long Island 1970s revisited: The Good Rats @ My Father's Place 1974 + More Concerts "Before the Fame"

    I remember them as a (minor) big deal on Long Island, NY FM radio. Their song "Tasty" got the most airplay IIRC.

    OT: Old farts trying to be hip:

    "More cowbell". I hated it then, I hate it now.

    Ludwig 6-hole snare hoops?

    I'm a big fan of an S-Hoop for the Pioneer batter side. I believe the added stiffness makes up for the 6 lugs so it plays like an 8-lug Jazz Festival.

    Ludwig Pioneer - Wow!

    I had the same thought a while back. Since I couldn't find a diecast hoop I theorized that an S-Hoop would have a similar effect so I bought one. Bingo, it DOES improve the sound and feel. It now plays like an 8-lug!

    The Rolling Stones - Live in 1972

    Charlie didn't always lift the hh, he started doing it around 1974-75. Old videos (and your ears) are proof of this.
