I may not know what I'm talking about, but sure sounds like Purdie's drumming to me.
Almost 10 years ago he was at a clinic in my area appearing with Derrick Roddy. All the young people gravitated toward Roddy (a great technician). Purdies' presence was basically ignored, so I got the...
I like my seat to be loose; nothing to do with reaching targets, but if I become uncomfortable in a static position I can always shift my body a couple inches to the left or right to relieve any discomfort that may develop in my back or my legs.
I'm old and gigging beats me up to to the point...
"I use a Drum Dial and a Tune Bot (as well as my ears when the sound yielded by either device isn't to my liking). The Drum Dial simply reads torque, not pitch, and while in theory it might seem that something equally torqued is therefore under equal tension (and therefore, equal...
For a live situation, mic'd or not: Prepared batter head. Proper tuning. No laundry. No "drum pillows" or "mechanical dampening devices". Ported or non-ported reso head (makes no difference except for desired tonal quality, more or less ring, and differentiated beater reaction). And, with...

I just turned 60 and my band mates bought me a Birthday cake, but it's the thought that counts, and I love 'em!
If I'm not mistaken, Tama Bell Brass snares can go for over a grand. (U.S.)
As a kid (11 or 12 years old) I spent many hours trying to play along with the records of The 5th Dimension, The Carpenters, The Mamas and The Papas, The Beach Boys, Et al.
Like many of you can attest to; I never thought I was trying to follow the same drummer in these countless and timeless...

But, at first blush, I'm still not sure I'd pay the money for the aforementioned offering.
Thanks for your insight,
No offense, but I don't think I wanna pay $749.99 for 3 of these drums used, especially with no snare.
I believe I could possibly get 3 drums, used, of a much higher quality (plus the addition of a snare) for an equivalent price -- or even maybe purchase higher quality new drums at this price...
