    Friday 5 Fer - The Night Shift

    Hi all, Honored to be subbing for snappy the next two weeks. Hope he enjoys the break - I'll do my best keep up the high standards! Instead of showcasing just one band, I went for an overall theme. Could've easily done 5 on each one, but I was hoping to hit on something for everyone. All live...
  3. drumstuff66 What's the scam here?

    Hi everyone, So obviously there's a scam here. Everything on their site is under $75.00 (Ex Tax). Can't find a review, even of their "highly rated" products. Their return policy seems almost impossible to adhere to - only original packaging, unopened, including shrink wrap and they must get it...

    Modern Drummer...

    I was 14 in 1980 and three years into school drum lessons (which I begged for) when I first saw a copy of Modern Drummer. It was at Goldie & Libro's on Chapel St. in New Haven, CT. It was the only place I could see brand new cymbals and drums up close and I just loved it. I'm sure it was small...

    Over-the-bar fills/beat displacement

    Hi all, I love using these "tricks" whenever I can get away with them - mostly on original stuff or more "jam/improv" gigs. I'm talking about things like Stewart Copland on "Spirits in the Material World", Bonham's thing on "Black Dog" (and others) and even the way Dave Robinson flips the beat...

    Basic Triggering Live For Idiots

    Hi All, For the first time in a long time I'm looking at incorporating triggered sounds into my live set-up. Though I've done this before, it was always the sound tech or keyboard tech that set it up - this is my first time trying get it together myself. We won't be using a bunch of sounds...

    The City Winery, Boston tonight - opening for Joanne Shaw Taylor...

    She's a great blues guitarist from the UK touring the US...The band I'm playing with has sold out The Winery's smaller room a couple times over the last year & they asked if we'd like to open on the main stage. I know, tough sell on a beautiful Memorial Day weekend, but it should a fun gig...

    What Do I Have Here?

    I picked this 16" crash at Music Go Round today for $29.99 (it actually measures just under 16")...the hammered look caught my eye. I've been looking for a "trashy, china-ey, efxie" type cymbal - either to use on it's own or be part of a stack - this weighs 1023g and has a dark, funky sound -...

    Unusual Zildjian Stamp on this A Custom Crash

    Hi all, In my search for an 18" A Custom crash I came across this stamp. It's lasered, but no serial number. I was thinking it might be an early A Custom ('91-'93) but from what I understand, lasered stamps started in 1994 along with serial numbers. 1993 and prior were die stamps. Zenstat's...

    WTB: Zildjian A Custom 18" Crash - 1990's

    Hi all, Hoping someone has an Zildjian A Custom 18" crash from the 1990's (no serial # or the serial # starts with the letter "I") they are looking to let go... I'm looking for good condition or better. Structurally sound - no keyholing, cracks, warping or dents - but not too concerned over...

    Ludwig 5" Black Beauty - bottom head hoop almost touching lugs?

    Hi all, I have a 5" x 14" 1996 Ludwig BB and the snare side head hoop is almost touching the (tube) lugs - the "center" bead is actually just below center so the lugs are closer to the bottom edge. Most photos of 5" BB's I've found have a more "centered" look, though I did find a couple that...

    Premier Artist Birch 13" Tom/FT with "British Made Since 1922" Badge

    Specifically, I'd love to find the 13" x 10" (?) Floor Tom that came with the Heritage Jazz or Bop kit (Sliver Sparkle Laquer). I think those were the kits that had the 13" based on what limited info I've found. One of the configurations might've had a 14" FT which I'd be interested in as...
