Re: K. or not a K....

Cymbalholic like WWE? Maybe you're just jealous because they blindsided you, tossed you out of the ring and then took away your title during Smackdown. ;) And, don't get a swelled head, but not long...

Re: K. or not a K....

Yeah family site. Ha. My gut tells me that cymbal is machine hammered. What do you think? Do you know if this seller is usually legitimate?

Re: K. or not a K....

I think its the hammering. But, in any case it just doesn't look like a K to me.

Re: Early 60s Ludwig 3ply "Super Classic/'68 Slingerland green sparkle 22 13 16 value

If you are in the US, it's difficult to compare prices between different countries, especially half way around the world. Keep in mind that $2100 USD would be equivalent to $3405 AUD based on the...

Re: Ludwig Speed King 2020 Reissue question.

Vincent has two levels of refurb. The more expensive level is $150 and along with the cost of a pedal in decent condition will exceed the cost of the new version. He runs a great service, and I would...

Re: Bop/Jazz Kits

I didn't read it the same way you did. I don't believe he was blaming Steve Maxwell for anything. I could be wrong of course, but I think he intended the statement as merely a general reference point...

Re: Ludwig Speed King 2020 Reissue question.

We met Vincent at the Delaware show a couple of weeks ago. However, my son already has a Speed King from the '70s in excellent, lightly used, condition which has a permanent place on his 1962 Super...

Re: Bop/Jazz Kits

As I said, I believe many sets are owned by collectors and are not used on gigs. If your kit has been in near mint condition and it had cost you $4k to $5k you might be a little more reluctant to...

Re: Not Vintage tell me about Stagg cymbals

They may not be your cup of tea, but they are definitely not toys. Of course, its unclear exactly what MIKEY777 is being offered. $10 per cymbal seems suspiciously cheap.

Re: Bop/Jazz Kits

I think most round badge kits are purchased by collectors, although some people do gig with them. I certainly would never consider dragging a $4000 or $5000, close to mint condition, RB set to a gig...

Re: Ludwig Speed King 2020 Reissue question.

I know who he is, but I don't know you, and when you said "just put up a review" I thought it might be you. We have some well known people here, and based on other videos on his YouTube channel...

Re: Ludwig Speed King 2020 Reissue question.

Thanks. Very useful. Is that you in the video? If so how did you get the prototypes to test?

Re: Ludwig Speed King 2020 Reissue question.

Perhaps, but where else would you put it on a compact folding pedal. Frankly, I would have preferred it if they retained the wing bolt to tighten the beater. If they had, the key wouldn't have been...

Re: Ludwig Speed King 2020 Reissue question.

Dan, (my son) saw the NAMM video and also thought the box was very cool.

Re: Ludwig Speed King 2020 Reissue question.

I'm not sure either but it may have to do with the responsiveness of the pedal and I'm guessing it may relate somehow to the number of back and forth swings the beater will make on it own when you...

Re: Ludwig Speed King 2020 Reissue question.

Thanks. I saw all the videos. I was hoping someone here had actually seen the pedal at NAMM or somewhere else.

Re: Ludwig Speed King 2020 Reissue question.

I always loved the Speed King pedal as a result of my "smaller and lighter is better" credo, having been a gigging drummer in Manhattan in the 1970s. The beauty's of the Speed King's simple and...

Ludwig Speed King 2020 Reissue question.

My son already has a Speed King pedal from the late 70s in excellent condition. It's used on his 1962 Super Classic set. The 2020 resissue looks very similar in most respects, except for the finish...

Re: Bop/Jazz Kits

Yes, a lot of entry level, or lower level kits are a great value today. As I've mentioned often, most hardware on modern entry level kits is superior to most of the hardware available on pro level...

Re: Bop/Jazz Kits

The Catalina's are very nice and very affordable drums. And in the real world when gigging with them you don't have to worry as much about scratches and dings, or leaving your kit at a venue compared...

Re: Bop/Jazz Kits

Much more than cool, there were practical reasons for urban drummers in big cities, where most of the jazz was located, to play 12/14/18 kits. As you mentioned, portability was a key factor for many...

Re: Dream Cymbals?

I just listened to some of their sound files over very good speakers and liked what I heard. I'd love to hear them in person one of these days.

Re: Dream Cymbals?

I didn't really give you advice, just my opinion. I do not characterize myself as an expert, but I have a lot of experience over a long period of time. I've started playing in 1959 as a 13 year old...

Re: Why Play Vintage?

Joking aside, most of the "pro level" hardware back in the the '60s was mediocre compared to most budget hardware today. Acquiring the appropriate vintage hardware to complete a vintage kit may be...

Re: Dream Cymbals?

I'm not quite sure how useful a 14" China would be. Most of the China's I've seen in use are usually between 18 - 22 inches. Although my son has a a 20" China he and I rarely play it, and he never...
