    Taye drum specs?

    Those look like the Orbitone series. Entry level drums. OK but nothing to get excited about.

    Can you play a roll (and how important are they)?

    The difference is that the double stroke roll, even with forearm pumping, utilizes much more wrist and fingers than the technique for a closed roll. Still two different techniques.

    Taye drum specs?

    I know Taye drums pretty well, but without a pic it's pretty hard to say. They had quite a few lines that used the same lugs.

    1920s tension rods?

    I've got a couple of Ludwig snares from that era and modern tension rods fit just fine. Are you looking for rods from that era? What length, and are they nickel plated rather than chrome?

    Apologize for using an inappropriate word in my OT parents thread...

    So do you think we should be permitted here to refer to African Americans using the N word and gay men as f*@@$ts? Frank would seem to think so, if you're going to use him as your authority.

    Can you play a roll (and how important are they)?

    A teacher I studied with really opened my eyes with her approach to open and closed rolls - that they are two mostly separate techniques. The closed roll is not a continuation of, or the next step in learning the open roll. She taught that the open roll is primarily wrist and fingers with very...

    Sticks-do you break them?

    Equating the number of sticks you've broken to your credibility as a drummer went out in the 70's. Good riddance.

    Sweetwater 12" Wuhan China deal. A review.

    Maybe you can think of like it's a $25 cymbal arm with a free 12" Wuhan China cymbal.

    Cover Tunes and original tempo (too slow?)

    I think the whole band is the time keeper, not just the drummer. Unless you're playing as a duo, you're outnumbered and if enough of the band wants to play it faster it's going to go faster unless you're willing to create a train wreck every time the tempo creeps past a point that you're...

    Why isn't my cymbal selling?

    More like supply and demand.

    Small Auxiliary Snare with a Marching Drum Sound

    I've used my Tempus 7x12 snare drum cranked pretty tight to get that sort of sound. I think having a shell that's a little deeper could help.

    Maybe it's Jeff Ogletree that has pancreatic cancer.
