    Where you are spending your time

    I like the binder clip holding the mute in place. Been doing the same for a couple of months. Much better than tape.

    Remo Black Dot Heads

    I have in the past 2 weeks changed from pinstripes to black dots on my 13,14,15,and 18" toms. I went from a pinstripe on the snare to a black dot several months back.

    Finally! An opportunity to help a fellow forum member. Last December I treated myself and purchased a Gibraltar rack like the one you are looking at. I went through the usual learning curve and maybe I can shorten yours. The first thing I did was up grade from the stock 40" curved horizontal...

    What's your absolute favorite song?

    Like many here, just one is hard to pick. Mood has a lot to do with it. Push comes to shove...More Than A Feeling, Boston. Time seems to stop for a few minutes when I listen. I close my eyes and slip away.

    30 strand snare wires/snare bed width and Rogers Superten

    I was wondering if anyone here on the forum knows if the width or size of the snare beds on a Superten are sized correctly to allow a wider snare wire set to lay properly on the reso head? Thanks Joe

    "J. Geils Band" Friday Five Fer

    I have always liked this tune. More so for the subject matter than the delivery of the message. Although no other musical arrangement than this one could work. I would speculate that every man on earth has at least once uttered to stinks.

    Nickel hardware

    Yup you made the right choice. I have done two ground up cleanings on my kit. Used a bench mounted cotton buffing wheel and jewelers rouge. Its messy but fast. Even makes the scratches shinny!
