    Barbara Thompson R.I.P.

    Just heard that the great Barbara Thompson passed away yesterday. Her band 'Paraphernalia' was one of the very first concerts I ever saw, and were impressed until today. Because it's a (the) drum forum, a clip including a drum solo from her husband Jon Hiseman, who suddenly passed in 2018...

    Unknown cymbal (no stamp)

    Dear friends Here, I have some images of a cymbal, that I cannot identify. Haven't seen anything like it. According to the seller, there is no stamp at all, no ink, nothing. He bought it a while ago, as package together with a vintage Sonor Champion, including Paiste 602 cymbals from the 80s...

    Bibin snare wires

    First of all: I'm not a specialist on snare wires. I just wanted to share some experiences that surprised me. A few weeks ago, I became aware of Bibin snare wires, hand made by Zoran Bibin in Serbia. I heard them on an outstanding snare (steam bent single ply apple) but realized that part of...

    Ian Paice drum tribe (youtube channel)

    Just stumbled about it. It's there for a while. I already watched a video some weeks ago without realizing that 'the chief' himself is engaged in the channel. For those of you who didn't find it yet: https://www.youtube.com/c/IanPaiceDrumtribe/videos I can't deny his influences on my own...

    Vintage ... Pearl? No: Gretsch 4153 floor show

    I'll need some advice from vintage drum specialists. Last week, I stumbled upon a snare drum. I knew this drum already since decades, as a local (and very good) drummer used it in different bands. Bands that inspired myself to go on stage, so it's quite a while ago. More than 30 years. Now it...

    'vintage' DW snare lug broken

    Hi Had anybody had this problem yet? On my DW snare from late 80s/ early 90s, a tension lug is broken. It's a 5 x 14 with double ended lugs (if this is the right wording). The snare didn't fall down or anything. I handle these drums with care. This break just happened during playing the drum...

    DW 5000

    Just wanted to talk about my gear. About 25 years ago - probably more - I bought a DW 5000. In these days, it was one of the best pedals you could get. Fast and reliable. Not the cheapest, but worth its price. Few parts have been exchanged on mine since then, but generally, this was my 'gigging...

    Dynamite Daze

    Short background: I joined this band about 2 years ago. One gig, then COVID. Now, we start again. Switched some songs to German language, including this one. Any comments on our music, my playing / sound etc. are welcome. The more critical the better, because I'd like to improve. I already...

    Post No. 100

    Good morning Drum Forum With my post no. 100 it's really time to say 'hello' to all of you. And I wanted to shortly introduce myself: I already liked drums as child, and started in my youth. At around 16, I got my first drum kit and was drumming a year later in local bands, what I'm basically...

    Help to identify an Istanbul cymbal smith

    Maybe here is somebody, who could help me. In the late 80s, I visited the Istanbul cymbal factory in Turkey. Official name, I guess, was 'Zilciler Kollektiv Sirketi' under Mehmet Tamdeger and Agop Tomuruk. It was the famous 'pre-split era' and I was really impressed how friendly and open...
