    Roc-N-Soc Round or Motorcycle Seat?

    Get the hydraulic, saddle seat with a back rest. From someone who is actively drumming and has had back surgery, I can tell you, IT'S THE WAY TO GO!

    Most You Ever made One single gig.

    Well, as a jazz player... you all know.. but once $4000.00 with 1st class flights and 5 star hotel ALL expenses paid. Ahhh, the good old days... now Corona has wiped out all my gigs no matter what they paid. Thank goodness for Zoom lessons.

    Anyone Actually Play an Old A Zildjian Ride?

    Although I have 2 sets of Old Stamp Ks, I also have 2 sets on Trans Stamp As...20s, 18s, with some 16s and 14-15" hats. Nothing is like the Old Stamp Ks, but the Trans Stamp As have a shimmer and glassy over dark quality that's all their own. They are also louder and in a sense easier play.

    COB Hoops VS Steel Hoops on toms? Big difference in tone?

    I have both COB on Gretsch 6 & 3 ply sets and steel on Rogers 1960 kit so I have lots of comparison. The Rogers toms have the purist fundamental tonality of all. Is it the rims? The Shells? Probably both.

    Similar cymbals to Transition Ride

    I'm an Istanbul Agop endorser. Love them, but nothing like the "glassy, dark" thing of a Trans Stamp... closer to dark Intermediate & New Stamp K's.
