    13" floor tom/drumstick between a 2S&3S.

    Depending on which Rocker lugs....the later ones are wider spaced than Classic lugs though the lugs them selves look to be the same size....thanks Ludwig :) Ludwig Classic maple shells are pretty thin as well and might due well searching for a 13" power tom

    PBS Country Music by Ken Burns

    I'm recording it, watched part on Sunday and last night but was flipping to watch football as well. I feel I'm fairly informed of the history but there's still been some stuff I didn't know

    What were these lugs called?

    That's a gorgeous drum would be an awesome small kick I bet...but a little too pricey for me

    Pearl 1.6mm Fat Tone Hoops

    I got a 70's 400 a month or so ago with the thinner hoops (originals I'd guess) and can't believe how good this sounds. My black beauty has stayed home since then. The cross stick sounds like a wood block (when I get the stick just right that is) Sorry Mo never tried the Pearl's, had...

    Checking in a 22” bass drum

    Might be cheaper to fed ex the bass drum to the studio if possible and then fed ex back home (or if it's a really cheap bass I'd probably donate to the studio rather than pay to ship it home)

    Favorite drum hardware.

    I've had Ludwig Modular hardware from 90's, Yamaha and Tama single braced all good. Currently using Ludwig Atlas Classic flat base. It looks great folds up compact and is light enough. It's not super light but it's sturdy.

    "Beater Kits".... do you really need one?

    Needed a beater floor tom last night as a loaner! Got done with our happy hour show, Alvin Crow plays after us which his drummer subs for me and I sub for him when needed. I was packed and sitting on my tailgate and knew the drummer had forgotten something you can just tell. Left his floor...

    Getting replaced/replacing someone

    Hey Mo, Don't think you did anything wrong here and it sucks the other drummer is taking it out on you. Guess just human nature to be p!ssed at your replacement but nothing you did wrong. You got called for a gig and you took the gig. Like others I've been on both sides of it and have always...

    Ludwig LR255STH Single Tom Holder

    Gotcha, Gibraltar makes almost identical tom arm, main thing is to get the 9.5 ball l rod. Would just be minus the Ludwig sticker and Ludwig T-Handle. The T Handle you could replace on the Gibraltar with a Ludwig....all made in same factory I'm sure

    DIY cymbal/snare rack

    Looks great, I would want some padding, at least some carpeting maybe where the drums and cymbals rest, though I doubt Pine would do much damage.

    INDe launching a new drum business

    He's doing spurs already with BR-1 or 2, I'm sure you could ask about using them with the 3 instead.
