    I thought we were a gang!

    Cymbals? We don’t need no stinking cymbals!

    What drum skill, or piece, was your ‘most challenging’ to play.

    The Jeopardy version of my answer…”What is the entire Rush catalog?”

    Why did Ludwig stop making...

    It would kind of neat to see the “New Yorker” kits with the shallower bass drums added to the production line. Bun had a cool kit a few years back.

    I want to get a set of 5 Roto Toms for my set. How feasible is this?

    I know they’re not quite the same but INDe’s Timba Toms are available from 6”-16”. Might be another option. YMMV.

    OT: Scotch Whisky

    Laprhroaig 10, 18 or 24. Usually take it neat with a small glass of ice water on the side. Can’t recall the last time I bought a bottle. Always seem to get bottles as gifts. Luckily, I associate with enablers.

    Generation gap…or..maybe we just sucked..

    That kind of sucks. I wouldn’t sweat it too much. It’s a Friday night gig in the middle of January. College kids returning to classes/campus after the winter break. Plenty of phones to distract the patrons. Hit ‘em with a 20 minute drum solo next time. Have some fun while the zombie drunks...

    Holy Grail cymbals

    Pretty satisfied with my set of 2002s. Probably don’t “need” more cymbals but it would be cool to have a few other flavors available for some different sounds. Wouldn’t mind having some other Paistes in the stash. Maybe a couple of GB multis. Maybe some 602 hats. No real urgent need to grab...

    True or false: few things speak more volumes about a person without saying anything than a drummer’s personal setup.

    What's Your Latest Drum Purchase?

    Thanks! Went back and forth between the CM and a Supra. Both sounded fantastic but I didn’t have a wood snare in the stash. I’m thinking Emperor/Ambassador for the heads. Anything has to be better than the Dynaton heads that were shipped with it.

    OT: Jeff Beck passes

    Awful news. Saw him several times. One of my favorite shows ever was Jeff & SRV at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago. Absolute monster of a guitar player. Godspeed JB.

    New snare day. Ludwig CM 6.5x14. So far, so good. Should be better with new heads. Nice companion for my Acrolite.

    New (to me) kit!

    Congrats! That’s a great looking kit. Put on a cowl and a cape when you play them. Serious Batman vibe happening there.
