    Two toms mounted on bass drum

    ... does not appeal to me. I don't know if we've discussed this before or if I am the only one who has this particular quirk, but I don't like two toms on the bass drum. Like many of us, that's the way I started out on my first 5 piece kit, but I just don't dig the look or playing that...

    High on Stress "Work Release" Live from 4 rooms in 2 states

    Here's a quarantine video my band just did. Playing here a classic combination of some big Ludwig 6 plys, with a LM402 and Paiste 2002s. My first time recording myself at home with my new Zoom R16 8 track recorder, using a Recorderman-type 4 mic setup. Hope you guys dig it!

    What drum hardware have you been surprised by?

    For me it’s DW. And not in a good way. Have a kit in trad sizes that I love but over many years, I have had almost all of their hardware stuff break or fail. I’m as surprised as anyone else but it’s true: pedals, spurs, tom holders, brackets, tension rods, you name it. Problems with all of...

    Pet peeve "The audience can't tell the difference"

    Look, I know we can all go down the rabbit hole on various topics around here but this type of response to a discussion always bugs me. Why is what the audience (or your bandmate or the sound guy or anyone else) able to notice the litmus test for whether something is worth considering? I get...

    Green Ludwig cord

    Replacement/alternative for Ludwig P32 butt

    I know there are a few options out there for replacing Ludwig throws that fit the hole spacing used by the P85 or P86 throwoffs. What I'm wondering is if there is a throw that happens to come with a replacement butt that also matches the corresponding hole spacing used by the P32 butt. Or if...

    Ludwig score!

    Walked into a local shop on a whim and saw what was marked as a "70s Ludwig Superphonic" for a VERY reasonable price. Almost ran to the cash register. Sorry about the sideways photo.

    Least favorite brass snare drum

    The favorite brass snare thread got me thinking about the drum that's on my practice kit that I want to love but don't: Pork Pie Big Brass aka BOB. It just has a thin sound to me no matter whether it's tuned up high or thudded out or anywhere in-between. The middle of the head sound seems...

    Think I just scored a brass Supra

    I think I may have stumbled upon a brass Supra. Saw what I thought was a Ludalloy drum but noticed a pre-serial keystone badge. Drum was much heavier than normal. I bought it when I saw a welded seam. Welded seam means brass, right?

    Best throne for broken tailbone?

    Any suggestions? I know many people here swear by various thrones for "bad backs," but it seems lumbar disc issues are the most frequently cited. I have no lumbar issues, but I do have degenerative disc disease in all my cervical discs (multiple bone spurs, loss of disc height, etc.)...
