    Some years back, I noticed Brian Blade had one. I managed to find this drum on eBay. I’ve had it for a good while now.

    Smiling while performing

    The pics are a few years old now, but they’re all my drums. I have some other cool stuff too. :) The gig with the silver vintage Gretsch was a jazz quartet that I was in for a long time. The other gig was a blues/rock type of trio group...played covers at a couple of restaurants....That was off...

    I had a lesson with Hamilton once. He got after me about closing my eyes. Said that you need to be able to see what you’re doing.

    Smiling while performing

    Who smiles when they play drums? I look like the grinch when I play. Ok, maybe not, but I always just have a more serious look I’m told. I’m not sure that it makes much of a difference, but interesting to ponder. I must say, I don’t think it’s something that can be forced. Meanwhile, I’m having...

    Delayed shipping from seller on the bay

    After not hearing anything for 10 days now, I’ve sent a refund request. The bay says they can intervene on the 26th if I don’t get a reply before then.

    Delayed shipping from seller on the bay

    So I bought a cymbal on June 12. Still no updates that it has been shipped. Contacted seller and waiting for a reply. Frustrated and ready to cancel! Anyone has an experience like this?

    Wes Montgomery- Full House: Jimmy Cobb Cymbal Sound

    He was playing a 20” K Con and some type of Sabian 18” on the left. Might have been an HHX of some sort, but don’t recall. The left side had a big piece of tape on the back to dry it up. Main had a few rivets.

    I met the man about two years ago. Sat near him and watched him play. Really a nice gentleman.

    The "Ideal" Crash Cymbal Size?

    It’s funny, weight and darkness/brightness makes a difference for sure. A’s and A Customs to be heard in louder settings! Mel Lewis talked about this once. Of course, this was comparing older As to older Ks. He said that he preferred the Ks, but to use As when you need more volume.

    Joe would travel down to play them all. It’s that cymbalholic (RIP) brotherhood.
