    So, the Ringo auction started today...

    Did anyone make a play for anything? I collect lamps and chairs as well as drums and thought these first few hundred lots looked cool (but have absolutely no $$$ to make anything happen). Edit: Just cruising the auction site and saw the #1 kit is at $575k as of 12am 12/4...

    Does anyone collect vintage center lug drums?

    I have a '65 Clubdate bass that I gig with regularly, but I've never finished out the kit. I thought it might be cool to have a clubbie, stageband, and a tower kit. I may have to get started looking for deals :-) Do any of you have a collection like this? Also, did Gretsch have a center lug...

    Buddy Rich drum set chronology?

    I recently watched a Buddy doc (the one Mel Torme narrated) and was struck by how many kits Buddy played. I always new he bounced around different companies, but it seems like he did so with regularity. There were a couple of surprising kits too. I didn't know he ever played a COW Slingy, but...

    Blaemire snares. How many of 'em are out there?

    Blaemires have always intrigued me. Especially the natural finished ones. I keep my eyes open for 'em to come up for sale, but it seems like I usually see toms, sometimes BD's.... Hardly ever snares. I could just be missing something I suppose.... Who's got a Blaemire snare? Do you gig it...

    WTB Fullerton Rogers 24" and 16"

    Just putting the feelers out there.... I have 12" and 13" Powertone toms recovered in black (no mounting hardware). I'd like to find a 24 bass and 16 FT to go with em... Players grade preferred. I wouldn't be opposed to a rewrap, but obviously don't want to mess with an original drum...

    Who's playing a 15" snare?

    I've always wanted to hit a 15" snare since I saw a 4x15 Kenny Aronoff Tama in a catalog. Now with Ludwig having the Supralite and Black Magic 15's my curiosity is once again piqued... I switched to 15" hats a while back and I feel like it would just be "right" to check out a 15" snare...

    I'm BAAAACK!

    Hi Friends! It's been a long time since I've been here on the forum. I'm looking forward to reconnecting with my drum brothers. Also, last year I bought my first house, complete with a drum room with a big closet I feel like I need to fill up with snare drums. :-) It's good to be back!

    Did anyone catch the recent John Weathers interview in Drumhead?

    There was a rather lengthy interview with John in a recent Drumhead issue (the one with Mike Mangini (sp?) on the cover). I couldn't find an online version. Real cool and worth a read. There's not alot of info out there on him.

    OT: Charles Manson is getting a star on the Walk of Fame

    Check this out.... ya know, i play "look at your game girl" at some of my solo acoustic gigs, and i was in a band that played "never learn not to love", but this is just plain screwy if you ask me... manson's "contribution to music" just doesn't seem THAT significant.... i know we've got some...

    anyone ever match vintage BDP with new?

    a friend of mine scored some old luddy BDP toms. i've got an old BD that's a good rewrap candidate. i've been lookin the obvious places (precision, jammin sam), but the pics are all a bit different, probably because of lighting. some pics look more grey, some more blue... the wrap on these...
