Interesting...I discovered a few "under appreciated" drummers who somehow made the Drummerworld line up:
Tomas Haake: http://www.drummerworld.com/drummers/Tomas_Haake.html
Dave Lombardo: http://www.drummerworld.com/drummers/Dave_Lombardo.html
Yea...I'm thinking it ain't the cymbals, Tom....lol. Everything you play sounds good to me. I agree, it would be hard to let any of those go I think.
Hey, which John Riley CD is that track from? It seems he has a couple out.
It doesn't take long to insert the upgraded chips and send them on their way... They were merely following the homing beacon in.
They picked them up three miles in because the average "conspiracy theorist" can't afford the thermal imaging and tracking gear necessary to "see" that far...
Ahhh....and there may be the solution...lol.
I have only owned and used Rogers and Tama hardware going back to '77. Wait-also used North hardware a ways back. Recently picked up a set of the DW "ultra lightweight" hardware.
I have a few pieces of Gibraltar stuff (cymbal arms and clamps), and...
No, I didn't pick up on that at all...
By the same token, I wasn't trying to call you out or put you on the spot. Just curious, how and for how long this may have been going on. I had never heard that in regard to hardware-other than the mass produced "cheap" stuff, sort of like Gibraltar...
Got me curious, so I have been looking into this... Can't find anything linking "Reliance" to any hardware other than the Dixon brand.
Any clues where to verify Reliance's link to any major brands?
Definitely Rogers hex-rods.
How long are the two shorter hex rods with the roll-pins going through the pointy end?
That will tell you what size bass drum they go with.
I may be interested in those four Rogers pieces.
Let me know how much you want for them, or if we could do a possible trade....
You asked\stated\suggested that it all looked the same....like it came out of the same factory and was designed by Gibraltar.
Every one of those makers developed, and at least at one time, manufactured, their own unique hardware.
As far as "today", while I have no firm evidence to prove it, I...
"No guesses or "I think's, please." Seriously? lol
Let me get out my World-wide history of drum hardware....lol.
Short answer: NO Gibraltar is a late-comer (founded 1993, owned by DW).
Rogers (1849) and Ludwig (founded 1909) were two of the larger American companies that survived the 60s and...
Europe you say?
Tell Grestsch you want a coupon to pick up the Sonor snare drum of your choice.
Assure them that you will then burn whatever it is that they sent you so no one will ever know they actually sent it out to you like that!
I may be a little slow, but I don't understand adding wheels to something that you are going to put onto something with wheels.
How cymbals do you normally carry?
How often will you not have the cart and have to carry them?
When I go "big" I use a hard cymbal case and a cart. When I go "small"...
