    How many songs do you play in a gig?

    Just wondered, on average how many tunes your band plays for a typical four hour gig.

    Some good news

    I have been practicing a lot and definatly notice some improvement. The only thing that is not working as good as it should is my right foot. But I am happy with my progress and find it to be very enjoyable to come down stairs every night and play my beautiful Camco drums( with a jazz fest...

    Source for cymbal arm

    I would like to try using the cymbal arm for my ride cymbal. Found a nice one from Steve Maxwell but it only fits mounts. My Ludwig (and Camco) are 9mm. Not getting any results from google. Can someone please tell me where to find one? I would be fine with a vintage one as long as its not...

    Deal of the year.

    Made a smart deal today, this jazz fest for painting a 20" bass drum. The drum needs an original brass batter hoop but other than that I think it's all there.

    Mismatched kits can be cool

    Here is a look at what I've been jamming on lately. My restored Camco kit and my Ludwig Jazz Festival snare that I made myself and a beautiful sky blue pearl 16" floor tom that I purchased from a great member right here on DFO.

    One thing missing in my life

    A 16" Camco silver sparkle, Oaklawn badged floor tom. I'm sure if I found one it would cost more than I paid for this kit, which came with a Camco super 99 solid brass snare. Not long ago I was lucky enough to purchase a 16 from a good friend here for another kit. I don't have any hope for this...

    Spotify vs. Amazon Music

    I was wondering if anybody has used Amazon music to listen to their Tunes. I'm sure there are some people out there that have and it'd be nice to hear about your thoughts on that service. I have had Spotify for a couple years now and I really like that but it does cost 10 bucks a month. I was...

    Matching a finish.

    Okay, here we go. A member here will be happy to see this. This is a Tama drum shell with a tangerine finish. The raw shell came from drumfactory. I can't take credit for the actual color match, that came from my finish supplier. It will be a mixture of yellow and orange dye. Then topped with a...

    The making of a jazz festival

    Well I couldn't find the exact Jazz Fest that I wanted to match my kit so I decided to make one. Started off with a 6 and 1/2 in by 14 in Keller vintage mahogany shell. This shell came with 1 1/2 in tall reinforcement rings. I had planned this the whole time, I would trim a half inch off of each...

    Drumming is Becoming Boring to Me

    Last night I sat down behind one of my beautiful vintage kits and tried to have fun playing but could not. I have been without a band for over a year and most likely will never be in a band again. I say this because my old band played very few gigs and I liked that, I dont want to be in some...

    Anyone have experience with Keller vintage mahogany shells

    I'm considering on building a drum from one of those vintage shells from Keller. Are those drums slightly undersized so there will be room for a wrap? And how close to a 60s 3 ply Ludwig shell would this be? Thank you, Jeff C

    School fest all cleaned up

    Thanks to member tmc333 I scored a nice Ludwig school fest snare drum last week. It is missing a P83 strainer and could use a new butt end. I purchased this with intentions on wrapping it but I thought I would clean it up first. Well, as you can see it looks amazing and the wrap idea has been...
