DW MDD Machined Direct Drive Single Pedal

http://tinyurl.com/y5eoyqkn Looks like they finally got it right. It is all about the angle of pulldown and the adjustments that can be made regarding it. This looks like they have taken the best of Boa and put it in metal. I cannot test this for you but it looks like the right design - sturdy and ...

Re: RIP Jimmy Copley

Nom, Thanks. I can't say that I will be over and through this but I am alive and I am able to support my family and with with my time, I can look into and study the things that I need to for us. That is some- thing. I try and stay focused on that. Well, I will never be that pedal guy again. I have t...

RIP Jimmy Copley

I searched for a thread on Jimmy Copley. I did not find anything on him. I saw him play live for the first and sadly last time on this tour for Tears For Fears way back when: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mcbgRUQaza8 At the time, I was playing matched and right-handed matched. I actually was not e...

Re: The Tony Williams Thread

Bananajou, I am glad that they are still out there and available. It is clear that there was a lot about him that led to ideas about how and why he did things. He changed personally during the 1980s and I think it was in a good way. Since the amputation, I have had a lot of time to think and about a...

Re: The Tony Williams Thread

Not sure if the old posts are stilll around but I talked a LOT about Tony's setup and his exer- cises and approach at the time and all of which were counter- intuitive. It will sound nuts. He set everything up to make you work harder. Number One: It encouraged you to have more of a full grip on your...

Re: Dennis Chambers Thread

Steve said to me that reading
is a tool and it helps to organize
but emphasized that with a chart,
my job is not to get my part right
BUT to lay it down so that every
one else can get THEIR part right.

Regards,

PS: Dennis is galactico!

Re: Tommy Campbell

Pocket,

You are very kind. I have
great memories of you and
others, here. I know what
you mean about the eyes.
People strain horizontally.
I think we get more vertical
as we get older. Must be the
earth calling us. lol

Hope you are well. We'll
catch up soon enough.

Regards,

of him as one of the
very complete players
and what a nice guy.

Re: Tommy Campbell

Tommy was at Berklee when I was there and he had tentacle hands then and still does. He is SO tall and his fingers are so long. Tony was not as tall but had those long fingers. I think they can give one better control. He was always good but got better when he left Boston and went to the Far East. G...
