    What’s your best score?

    A couple of years ago I found a Ludwig Acrolite snare for $70 in an antique mall. It came with the hard plastic case too. I don't have a lot of drums, so this one counts as my best deal.

    dino danelli and the rascals 1969

    This is the drum set that I remember. He was the first guy that I can remember that had his tom on a snare stand, and not mounted to the bass drum. Plus there was always talk about how he looked like certain Beatle.............

    Narada Michael Walden Joins Journey

    Nope, I was really a TV repairman for many years. Gave it up in 1993 and got an office job. It was the best thing I ever did. I mean who pays someone to fix a TV anymore?

    Hello

    Welcome to the forum. I was very surprised a few years ago when I had a hearing test to find out that my hearing loss is hereditary, and not due to drumming, playing in bands, etc. But, hearing aids work great, and I have ear plugs for when I play the drums. I haven't given up on my acoustic...

    Narada Michael Walden Joins Journey

    I remember way back when my older Brother (4 years older than me) had Michael Walden in his High School rock band for a hot second. As a kid I always liked to hang out and watch my Brother's band rehearsals, I was always in awe of the drummers. My only other "connection" is many years later...

    What is it with lads?

    I have been a man all of life :D,but in bands I have been treated the same way. I tend to be quiet and let my drums do the talking, but it seems that there is ALWAYS one egomaniac, control freak, etc. in every band I have been in. So people really think that they are the "star" of the band...

    OT: what do you think of where you live?

    My wife and I have both lived in Southwest Michigan our entire lives. Our town is a college town, so we have pretty much everything here. We are also half-way between Detroit and Chicago which is nice. For the race fan in me, Indianapolis is only a 4 hour drive, and Sweetwater Music in Fort...

    Power toms!!!

    When I purchased my Ludwig set in 2011, I ordered the "Power 4" configuration. It consists of an 18x24 bass drum, 11x13 tom, 16x16 tom and an 8x14 snare. I had wanted a set like this since the 80's, and now I have one.

    Has anyone bought any B-stock drums and is it worth it?

    Well, Music Manor is only a 90 minute drive from my house, so I was able to see the drum in person. Big difference from looking at a picture on line.

    Has anyone bought any B-stock drums and is it worth it?

    The Ludwig store that I shop at, Music Manor in Lansing, MI, sells a fair amount of "B" stock snares. Some look perfect, and others will have a major flaw in the finish. I was considering a Black Beauty "B" stock that they had, but the whole side of the snare had a major blemish, so I decided...
