....had no cymbal, only hi hats. His ride and crash are only to his right. Pre '69 he's got a 'conventional' 2 cymbal setup but changed in '69 until the Some Girls shows in '78 (when he started on the china on that side)
Am curious, anybody know why ? Was it connected to his switch to trad grip...
I have a set of natural maple lacquered drums 12-14-22 to which I added newer 16 floor tom, all same model. The floor tom (being new), does not have quite the same 'yellowish fade' one sees in the older maple drums.
Do you think the fading is mostly just age, or is mostly related to or enhanced...
Anybody know the year/model of this Slingerland kit?
You can see the badge at 4:22...I think 50's?
Chad Smith playing at home. the bass drum has just an Ambassador, wide open and the sound is huge.
Shows you how drum tones can be so deadened with modern controlled muffled heads.
Ok, mighty bored today and made a quick soundfile of 4 ride cymbals I own played to a very short, simple pattern.
If you have 2.5 minutes of your life to waste, am interested in your opinions on their sounds. Which would be the best 'all-round' ride to your ears? thanks.
I came across this. Looks like the poor bass drum has been modified for a Pearl mount (sigh)?
Bass drum hoop cracked, but interior of shells look decent. Looks like a 22-12-13-16?
Any Rogers afficianados wish to estimate a worth?
I bought a 1960's stamp Zildjian A top. The ad said it was 732 grams. I was doubtful but bought it anyway, wanted to mix/match and I like old cymbals.
Arrived, just weighed it...740 grams. Is that not one of the lightest yet for 60's Zildjian hats?
Pic below, 12-13-16-20. Looks to be mid-70's model, maybe, maybe not?
Kinds of shells? I have read of birch+luan in older Yammies (rather than the luan-only of many other MIJ kits)
Anybody have an estimate of going prices? thanks.
It seems a 5A is the most common stick size today, give or take a bit. If I watch videos of older drummers, 60's and earlier, even rock drummers, most are using what appear to be sticks thinner than 5A. I know of only Bonham using quite large sticks say by '69.
Was there an evolution to larger...
....similar to the Zildjian ones.
I'd like to know in some detail:
1. when the Sabian label got REALLY big. Early 90's...or was it earlier/later?
2. When the original 'HH' short form became fully spelled out and labelled with 'Hand Hammered' in that cursive script on rides. It then eventually...
Have been studying Ringo's sounds lately. I know he used two 20 inch A Zildjians. One has rivets. Does anybody know their weights? Medium, light, medium light?
They seem bright on some recordings (say pre-1965) and very mellow on others (say Abbey Road). Studio compression ....or different...
Anybody know the thread size on the tension rods for a 1960's Slingerland bass drum? I'd like to order (i.e. from Drum Factory etc.) conventional rods (i.e. no old T-rods).
What is the popular thread size on most other more modern bass drums ? thanks.
I have some late 50's Slingerland sticksaver snare hoops I want to clean. I've heard of soaking them in Dawn soap for 48 hours.
Stupid question - Does this mean soak in PURE Dawn liquid, or Dawn+water?
Any other tricks? They are brass or nickel, can't tell (late 50's Super krupa snare).
There are a lot of these lately. Almost as if somebody is employed looking for likenesses of Marvin Gaye songs.
Is it the same tune ripped off? What say you?
(I think the lawsuit will fail, can't own a...
