    Calf skin heads

    14” batter side snare for sure. Also 12” for rack tom and 14” and 20” for batter side floor and bass. Is it best to use calf skins on both batter and reso?

    Ringo’s Drum tech

    I’m hoping someone can lead me to any information about Ringo’s drum tech. It appears that Jeff Ocheltree was Bonhams and there is plenty of videos and info on him. I would love any insight on Ringo.

    Zildjian K Constantinople Players Here?

    So much for meeting halfway. I just watched you Gretsch Kit three different tunings. Anyone who tunes that well should be required by international law to post the tunebot settings. Awesome brother!

    Canopus rfm

    I would love to hear a sound file on those Monsters! One negative comment I’ve heard is that the 16” floor tom is dry. Have you had problems with yours?

    Canopus rfm

    The thickness of the shell matters, the number of plies matters and the bearing edges matters. I like to know what’s under the hood before I spend $3k.

    Canopus rfm

    I agree it just seemed odd that they weren’t willing to give these facts out. My goodness look at Dw’s website you can find out the g.p.s coordinates where the tree grew they used in your shells and the name of the guy who formed it in the mold.

    Quiet cymbal

    I need a “QUIET” ride cymbal. I’m playing in a very unforgiving room, the acoustics are terrible. At the present time I’m using a Zildjian K Con medium thin low 20” or a Zildjian trans stamp 18”. Even after trying different types of muffling and using all the technique I know these two cymbals...
