    My 'Playing'...improv

    Trying to get up the nerve to "man up" and put some of my playing up for you guys. One of my favorite things to do is take a drumless tune, in this case "Little Wheel" by Buffy St. Marie (apologies to BennyK lol), and put a drum part over it. I think of it as having a conversation with the...

    Microphone question...

    So I am trying to learn some recording skills and would like to get a better overhead sound. Problem is I have a super low ceiling (7ft. where my kit is). Currently using Audix ADX51s (small diaphragm condensers which are supposed to be decent for inexpensive mics), but seems like I'm not...

    Istanbul Mehmet Ride Cymbal Demo

    Came across this guy looking for some Istanbul Mehmet demos. Not sure if his stuff has been posted here before or not, but this is about as good as I have ever seen or heard for a ride demonstration. I know the Mehmets seem to lack some of the respect the Agops get, but I have a few of them...

    K Question-18" Dark Thin

    Hey.... I am curious if there was a change in the bell from the IAK 18" Dark Thin and the newer (~2017) models? I have a mid 90s 17" Dark Thin that has a small bell, and a 2017 model 18" Dark Thin with a *much* larger bell... Ok,ok, I KNOW one is 17" and one is 18"! But the characteristics...

    Slowwwwww.....

    Hey, lately ( 2 weeks or so?) when I click on a thread heading to open it, it takes forever to open. Like 15+ seconds or more. Happens every time mobile (Safari) or desktop (Firefox). Is it just me? What should I try to restore it to normal? Thanks!

    LUDWIG concert bass drum...

    I recently came into possession of circa 1960s 18"x40" Ludwig concert bass drum. Green sparkle wrap which is starting to peel. All the lugs are there and are in decent shape (about 7 1/2" in length overall). Tension rods are all there, but several are slightly bent and are "functional" (about...
