Re: Snare Drum Inquiry (give me your thoughts!!)

Hey WillyZ! Are you out East now? We should hook up if you are close by, I'm in NJ. Anyway... Stave Shells- I have a few, a Brady and a Unix. I am VERY wary of anyone making stave shells because they are relatively "easy" for someone to build-experiment in their garage, and if they don't k...

Re: RIP Jimmy Copley

Peter, Very nice to see your name again, I always remember you as the "bass drum pedal guy." (right?) Glad to hear that you got through your misfortunes, I sincerely hope the upward trend continues! Now on to music. Strange that you bring up Jimmy. A few years back I found myself only list...

Re: Can we just talk Gretsch drums a bit.

OAO, I have many Gretsch drums. BD's in 18 through 24, and toms in 8 through 18, and a few snares. I have been working on this "shell bank" for a long time. I never set them all up at one time, I just like to pick and choose sizes for each gig. There are many examples of these drums in man...

Re: HODers VIDEOS TOPIC - Your own drum videos here

No Paul, the process of playing softly with sticks is one of the best "excersises" you can do. It helps you improve your touch, you develop the ability to control your cymbal (and drum) sound. The idea of playing very intensely at a low volume (burn hot on a low flame) will GREATLY improve...

Re: tom sizes (15x15)

Jem, I am a HUGE fan of 15" toms. I actually have three. I have a complete set (all sizes) of older Yamaha Tour Customs and that includes a 13x15 (mountable floor tom.) For my Gretsch's (again, I have them in all sizes) I have a mountable 13x15 and a 15x15 with legs. As Paul said, a 15 is a per...

Re: VINNIE - The thread about Colaiuta

What's up fellas? I'll chime in here and say that seeing Vinnie (or any great drummer) live with a band of their peers or heroes is (of course) always a privledge. I've seen him with both Jeff and Herbie SEVERAL times, both are special, and bring out a different side of Vinnie (as they would with an...

Re: VINNIE - The thread about Colaiuta

I TOTALLY agree Steve. And that (what you described) is EXACTLY why I LOVE that Shedaisy record. He and I had a long talk about that record once, and he almost couldn't contain his excitement in merely talking about that record. Some guys get too involved in trying to find a secret entrance into the...

Re: Your desert island snare...

OK, since someone called me out on this thread before it devolved into internet juvenilism. I always think of snares in a few categories and sounds. Modern and vintage, and wood and metal. Y'all know I'm a SD junkie, and moods and tastes always change. But right now my DISD's would be: Vintage- Meta...

Re: OFFICIAL JEFF PORCARO THREAD

I had heard a while back that this could be "in the works," but I'm glad to see it has been realized. The Montreux 1991 Toto concert has been officially released!!!!!! https://www.amazon.com/Live-at-Montreux-1991-Blu-ray/dp/B01IHVHGBE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1474695993&sr=8-1&ke...
