Black Galaxy Super Classic outfit with twin badges on bass drum!
I got an email blurb today (from Midwest Percussion) that the "new" Avedis Zildjian "A" cymbals would be arriving soon.
'NEW LOOK' Classic A Zildjian Cymbals.
"Zildjian has updated the look and sound of the classic A Zildjian line."
Anybody know what's going on there? They're getting...
Just wanted to mention, ummm.... I'm goin' back in to the Opthamology Clinic early tomorrow to be evaluated by a FOURTH Optho guy. They're turfin' me all over the place.
I failed the qualification for a corneal transplant (quality of vision-improvement is not worth it), and now the progressive...

MERRY CHRISTMAS Happy Holidays! SEASON'S GREETINGS Peace On Earth, Good Will Towards Men
No matter how you say it, say it here! Let's bring a little Yuletide Cheer to the Forum!
Now, there's one other thing you need to know:
On Christmas Eve, Santa...
...worth checking out just for the photography! They look so good. (Restored, I guess)
Too late to add a washer?
Zidjian Vintage 16" on eBay. Does anybody use a stand that doesn't have to go up through the middle? :-D
Hey, set aside a moment to send good thoughts to Drummerdude and family. His daughter is, I think, going to have surgery tomorrow. Not too many details, but she's in the hospital now.
Drummerdude (Lee) will fill us in when he has time, I'm sure.
This bass drum sound has always struck me as unusual. Relatively high-pitched, short, and I could almost believe it's an analog electronic sound (Simmons). But I'm not sure. It's so prominent, and dominates the mix throughout the tune.
What do you think of it? Is it right for the tune? Would...
Ignoring the cosmetics (it's pretty beat up), is this a good deal for an '80's Gretsch 3-piece?
Would this have the correct "Gretsch" sound? Is this the "desirable" Gretsch...
(Pardon the meandering exposition, but I was up on a ladder cutting tree limbs all morning in the heat, and now I'm so exhausted and dehydrated I can't even get up from the computer. I'm still able to type, though. That's a shame for you guys, right?)
What do you do when most music fatigues...
If you have the time and patience to watch this 9-minute video, and you have good speakers, you can't help but be impressed with the tonal variations in these different shells.
I don't care if you're a DW hater, this is interesting stuff.
Personally, and for the record, I love my DW's a...
Somewhat minor eBay rant to kick off a Friday morning. :-D Spotted this listing for a Stage Custom set:
Perfectly nice drums, not...
I've been seeing a lot of clips lately with really great-sounding cymbals, and I'm noticing something particular: a lot of the drummers I like are using what appear to be 15" or 16" primary crash cymbals. I've always thought you needed 18" crash cymbals.... now I'm seriously wondering if that's...
