    I see one about once a year. They usually give away copies at the convention and I will stumble into one. Its been a long time since I had a subscription. Actually now that I think of it I did have a subscription a few (not too long ago) years ago. It was weird because I didnt order it and I...

    Why do gretsch late 70’s SSB kits sound so good?

    The mount on the drums in the original post are in good shape and according to the owner work great. But like Slingerland setomatic overtightening will kill them.

    Why do gretsch late 70’s SSB kits sound so good?

    John Anderson bought the entire set. Louis used a few of the drums at the Albright Knox outdoor jazz concerts and they got discolored From the sun. He was so upset about it that he stopped using the drums. I only saw him play them a few times in all of those years. Interestingly, the first time...

    Why do gretsch late 70’s SSB kits sound so good?

    I sat in on a friends gretsch kit at a jazz picnic yesterday. The set used to belong to a great drummer and mentor to many of us in Western New York (Buffalo region) who passed away a couple of years ago, Louis Marino. Apparently Louis had an endorsement deal with Gretsch and when it was coming...

    yeah baby...from that little ole drum co. down in TX

    The A&F drums are very processed. I don’t feel like I’m really hearing the sound of the drums. I like the sound but it just doesn’t seem real to me. The gretsch set that Joe posted sounds like real single headed Toms. Check out 11:45 & 29:30 for a couple of shots of a different kind of single...

    What did Max Roach do?

    I wonder if that top one is from “Saxophone Colossus” session. Or maybe Bud Powell’s “Un Poco Loco”? That and St. Thomas are the only recordings I can recall where He plays a cowbell.
