I know there are plenty of Canadians on the forum. Reminder tonight is Tragically Hip's final show after 30 years together. The show is being shown now on various TV channels and all over the web. Gord is going out in style, bummer about his health issues.
The gigs we are playing are now requiring me to start micing my kit so I bought a Shure Beta 52 for the bass drum. Now that the mic has arrived, I need to buy a dedicated short boom stand and I'm looking for ideas. Do I buy a $26.00 cast iron base model like the On Stage or buy a short tripod...
I need at least 1 chrome Gretsch Catalina lug to replace a broken one on our rehearsal Kit. I would consider a few extras if available. Send a PM with pricing including shipping to E. Amherst, NY 14051.

MF has the Gretsch Renown Groove kit on sale. 20",10",12",14" with an add on 8" tom for $899.00.
Great deal for super nice drums, I gigged mine on Saturday and really enjoyed playing them.
Earlier this summer I borrowed a Roland TD-6 kit from a band member to try out at a lake cottage I own. Noise is an issue so keeping an acoustic kit out there wasn't an option. Well now I have my own kit a Roland TD-30K with an extra cymbal added on. Originaly I thought a TD-30 kit was out of my...
MF has a legitimate sale going on for Yamaha drum hardware, free shipping no BS. I just ordered a 740 hi hat stand for $71.99 shipped free. Thought I would pass this along.
I noticed today is Tommy Well's birthday. He would have 63, what a huge loss to the drum community! We met up a few times for lunch while he was in Buffalo at goalie camp for his son. He was a great guy!
Musician's Friend deal on the Gretsch Catalina Bop Kit. They don't ship for a few weeks, but worth waiting for $379.00:
I won this one on EBay a while ago, cleaned it up, installed new Attack Terry Bozzio (Tribute to Tommy Wells) heads top and bottom, and new grosgrain snare straps. The heads have only one gig on them. It’s a nice drum although the top rim appears to be a replacement and hits the tone control...
The deal started yesterday, not sure how long the stock will last, 14" Evans G1coated heads $5.00 each limit 2 per customer. Yes, these are the new level 360's, bought 2 and my wife bought 2. I also bought a 12" G1 360 and plan to rehead my Gretsch USA kit this weekend. Time to get rid of the...
I know there has been disscussion regarding how Gretsch cuts back the wrap on the USA Customs and New Classics, not sure about the wrapped Brooklyns. I decided to pull the head off my 12" tom and share my findings to help educate other forum members about what heads will work. I named the...
I have been using exclusivly DW 6000 hardware for years and have experienced the changes in design throught this period of time. I recently received the latest version 6700 boom stand and thought the improvements were worth posting. The stand to the left is an older version that only featured...
Found this on another site, thought I would pass it along. Apparently you assemble the kit yourself:
