    Drum Cases That Aren't Drum Cases

    Yepper, that's the one! I've found them over the years at flea markets etc. Built light, just heavy enough and no more. I buy these whether I need them or not because there's always a bud needing one.

    Cut-a-ways, Power Wedge, North, Sound Projectors - What's the Scoop?

    I have a 20" Staccato BD in this design. It skews low in pitch but otherwise sounds like most other single-headed BDs.

    Carbon fiber/Kevlar Ming Composite 14x5.5” snare

    I think a lot of people thought the ebay blow-out prices were the regular prices. Some thought they were incredible for $100-$150, others assumed they were just cheap drums. (I guess I'm assuming a lot here about what others thought, probably too much.) In reality, Ming were (and Mair are)...

    2 Ludwig bow tie lugs

    Do you think these will work? One of them is missing the two swivel nuts and spring.

    Carbon fiber/Kevlar Ming Composite 14x5.5” snare

    Yes, Pearl did make Factory fiberglass snare drums. Also worth mentioning, I think some people got the wrong idea about these drums due to the blowout pricing. Some thought they were just cheap drums, others thought that they were miracles of economy at that price. Neither was the case.

    I have one from the MusicYo era - don't know if it's the same or desirable - just came on the drum. The adjustment knob is bent, so I swapped it out. LMK if you want it.

    Dixon seems to be pretty good now

    I think a lot of the things we assume to be true about brand reputation and naming reflect a fading boomer mentality. It's been 40+ years since most drum brands started stratifying their lines. I think that most of the people who still think like that have always thought like that, and it's more...

    Crosby getting into it with Byrds drummer Michael Clarke

    Gary Usher wants a shuffling jazz-WALTZ in a 4/4 tune. Am guessing that's not really what he means. Yikes.

    My step-dad said I had my kit set up wrong. Should I take that as gospel?

    Jeez... He does have a point - but this discussion is goofy. TRY it and learn for yourself. Your preference is all that matters here.

    Looking for… a bass!

    I have this bass too. Great value, sounds like the real thing when you record it.

    TTO - Christmas Must Be Tonight

    Thanks for listening, Charles. I use a Tascam DP32, which has 8 channels for tracking plus 12 stereo tracks to mix onto. I use the same method we did in analog days, no plug-ins or PC anything. This was a quick and dirty one knocked up in 2 days using my usual mix of ukuleles, keyboards and...
