    Hotdoggydydog...won the darn thing!!!

    Late last week I put a bet for a 6 1/2" deep, Ludwig hand-hammered Black Beauty snare drum equipped with a P70 super sensitive strainer mechanism. I put a max bet of one dollar over the base betting price and nearly forgot about the whole affair until yesterday when I remembered to check ebay...

    Is gone, gone, gone!!!

    This morning I discovered that someone stole my 1966 Ludwig 6 1/2" super sensitive snare drum, which was in a case, plus a Zildjian sticks bag full of stuff; the stuff was taken from the rear seat of my Mazda SUV. Luckyly a bag containing three Zidjian cymbals was left behind for some reason...

    "Reputation": what does it mean???...

    Ok, this might be a bit trite...but what exactly does it mean to have a "reputation" level as DFO member??? Inquiring minds want to know!... :drunken: -elcid

    Great fun to watch!...

    Was just checking out some film footage of Benny Goodman's performances through the years, and as usual became highly amused by Gene Krupa's antics whenever he played with the latter's groups--great drummer too, no doubts about it!--so began to think...ok, who is also a lot of fun to watch...

    Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Tony Williams...Gretsch...

    Late last night was watching several '50s/'60s film footage of some of Miles Davis' live performances on youtube in which very young looking Tony Williams and Herbie Hancock were also featured; in one of those videos the enssemble was playing one of the fastest "bop" tempos I've heard! :blink...

    Got an avatar...oops!!!...

    Was checking the "Gallery" section a while back and clicked on a thingy that says "get this for your avatar" or something to that effect; it was a photo of Mr. Synclair's drum set, which is located in a recording studio somewheres in Los Angeles. In case it isn't known...the fact is that Mr...

    Zildjian's Constantinoples...

    Does anybody here use any Constantinople cymbals...either ride, crash, hi-hats, or a combination of all? I seldom see much been said about Zildjian's top-or-the-line pies, so it'll be cool to read your opinions... -elcid

    Aquarian drum heads...

    Just took delivery of a package from Cascio Interstate Music containing a few items I ordered on-line last week; one of those items is an 8" Aquarian Performance II batter head. Was about to install it on an '80s Yamaha RC tom when immediately noticed a rather nasty looking wrinkle in one area...

    Just got in the Jojo Mayer double instructional DVD set and, man...did it shocked me to no end! :blink: :shock: Have heard a lot about the Moeller system but had no real idea of what entails...until now; seeing Jojo explain its rather complex mechanics left me absolutely breathless...and...

    ...have this ever happened to you???...

    Well, after eagerly waiting for quite a while to do so, finally got to play drums with two church choirs at the Redlands University's Memorial Chapel during Easter Sunday services...only to be taken aback by an acoustics phenomenon better known as "time delay"...or more crassly put: "slap echo"...

    Ok, happy birthday from me to me (my BD was actually on the 11th; am 65 now and on forced medicare too-yikes! :blink: )! Anyhow, since I just took delivery of an 8" tom I bought from e-bay recently and a 6" deep matching (well, sort of) wood snare purchased from yet another DFO member, decided...

    E-bay: love it & hate it!!!...

    What do you know...no sooner than buying an '80s Yamaha RC kit couple of weeks ago I began to get the bug of adding an 8" rack tom to this set...so started to search in e-bay. Immediately came upon one that already had 7 bidders, but decided to put down the max I was willing to pay for it...

    ...well...should I take the plunge?...

    Have always wanted to own '80s RC Yammies since making the mistake of writing off a complete set (set up was just like Steve Gadd's but in cherry red rather than black) that was offered to me by a local music house at a killer price back in '84, but now am faced with the opportunity of acquiring...
