Re: D'Addario aquires Pro Mark

However, I'd like to point out that while the weight varied a lot between pairs, Todd's signature stick might be the best stick that Promark make. I could dig through several pairs and walk out of the store with some great feeling heavy maple sticks.

Re: D'Addario aquires Pro Mark

I love the Tony Williams stick, but every pair I've picked up is warped and unmatched. I didn't even know that Zildjian made a Tony Williams stick. I used to use(and love) the Gretsch Tony Williams stick over 20 years ago, but Gretsch stopped making sticks shortly thereafter. I'll have to check the...

Re: D'Addario aquires Pro Mark

I believe VicFirth has always made Zildjian sticks. From what I understand Zildjians QC specs aren't as stringent as VicFith's, hence why the perceived lesser quality. :| I don't get that. Why would you have a better company make your sticks... but have lower quality control? Anyway, I'd love to se...

Re: New Product: Sabian Omni

The Vault line now has all the signature models in it...

Sounds interesting... I wonder why they're only out in 18" and 22" sizes?

I saw the Stanton Moore Trio last night (review)

I caught wind of this gig about a week and a half ago, and I was really excited to see them live after being quite familiar with Stanton's solo records with the trio and of course being a big fan of Galactic (saw them earlier this year too). The trio was apparently the backing band for Anders Osborn...

Fantastic drummer, studied with Joe Morello, and was one of my teachers while at LAMA. He taught me a lot of things that really helped in my development over the years... beyond that he's a great guy and a good friend.

Re: What heads are you currently using?

Insteresting stuff, cats! I've had problems with Remo's quality. A couple years a go I bought a batch of heads and after putting them on the kit the coating started come off right away. I called Remo up (don't remember off the top of my head with whom I spoke with), but they sent me an entire new ba...

Re: Vinnie and Bromberg

wow, sorry to have hurt your feelings. I didn't mean to make fun of Vinnie, more of the artists who make all those tribute records. Let's relax a bit. I doubt that's the way he looks at it. He probably just got a call, was told about when and what the session was, that they'll meet his rates, he ch...
