    Drumming and Cycling

    I’ve been riding seriously since 1988 and it’s an important part of keeping my sanity! I like gear, just like drum, so I have too many bikes.

    OT: Bourbon drinkers? Favorite Bourbon...

    I recently tried Larceny Bourbon and found it interesting. Featured snippet from the web Larceny was hand selected by our Master Distillers to have a taste profile of a six-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Made with wheat as the secondary grain, instead of the traditional rye, Larceny...

    OT: Bourbon drinkers? Favorite Bourbon...

    Bulliet is my go to if you like a little bite in the flavor. Otherwise, a Angel’s Envey that is finished in port wine barrels is smooth and tasty.

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

    Here you go, Baldwin era SSB craftsmanship at it's finest. I trued the shells, re-cut the bearing edges and the drums sound great!

    Some advice on buying a low-cost bop kit

    The best value bop kit I have owned is the Mapex Meridian Manhattan Maple bop kit. 100% maple shells, nicely built, beautiful finish , and sounds great. They sold for around $650.00 new and have been discontinued a few years ago. Find one used and you will be impressed.

    OT: Spring = time for tinkering with bikes :)

    The 29er is perfect for what you described. This is why I went 29er and not 27.5+. The 29" wheels roll fast, light in weight but don't ride as nice as plus tires in the rough stuff. I ended up with the S build from Colorado Cyclist for less than the R build. They had a smokin good price on the D...

    I always wanted a red sparkle kit so in 2011 I ordered a red glass glitter Ludwig Legacy Downbeat kit.

    1960s Sonor Drums... How cool are they?

    I'm a huge Teardrop fan. My 1965 Chicago kit is my wife's favorite kit. LOL All 3 ply shells with a 6 ply snare.

    drilling holes in a virgin bass drum shell to accomodate a tom mount

    +1, mark the location with a punch and the point on the brad point bit will give the most accurate clean hole. Drill once with the correct size bit and your done.

    Spaun Drums?

    Back in 2002 Spaun drums were all the rage on the old RMMP newsgroup so I ordered a large set. Great drums, flawless build, sound amazing. My musical style has changed and the kit doesn't get played as I have several other kits I enjoy. I would love to sell them but resale is lousy.

    Mapex Meridian Kick Mount Problem

    Here is the mount on my Merdian kit. Looks identical to your picture. I use the memory lock on the post and never had a problem. Perhaps you have the incorrect Tom post.

    In Honor of the DW Acquisition, Lets See Your Slingerland Drum Pics!

    My first quality kit was my 70's Slingerland chrome over wood double bass drum kit. It's long gone but well remembered. The 22,13,16,14sn WMP kit was restored, enjoyed and eventually sold. Last is a nice 20,12,16 players kit that I still own. Slingerlands's were great drums at a fair price!

    Gretsch 70s tom bearing edge

    I have a set of Baldwin era SSB drums that had horrible edges from the factory. I re-cut the edges using a 45* bit and a 1/8" round over bit after leveling the shells. I couldn't justify buying an expensive 30* 1/2" shank bit so I used what I already had. The edges turned out great
