Re: Do you see what I see in photo?

If the Tama tom is a 20", how big are those "high hat" cymbals? Maybe I need to put on my old man reading glasses...

Re: Paul McCartney was right...

I will have to send you a tee shirt I have that says "Old Dudes Rock Harder". I always thought that folks who played jazz or other styles made better rock and show drummers. It has something to do...

Re: Marching Drum Heads?

Sorry it took me so long to get some photos of the Blaemire snare drum shell. I got this from helping Tommy Winkler of Nashville move out of his shop. If I understand correctly he custom made it...

Re: Doug Clifford's CCR Camco kit.

I remember reading at the Phoenix MIM display that Doug kept knocking over his Camco cymbal stands so the roadies put some circular stage weights over the tripod legs. That kept the stands stable...

Re: Marching Drum Heads?

Brian, Since you have a 15" diameter drum you made the perfect choice with the WFL snare stand. My high school band marched 12" by 15" parade drums and I remember that they would fit on those...

Re: Marching Drum Heads?

Brian, You are quite welcome. I forgot to ask what diameter is the drum? In the past a lot of marching drums were 15" but the style has gone to higher pitch and 14" it seems to me. Drum companies...

Re: Marching Drum Heads?

The only good drum for any kind of Kevlar head is a modern marching drum and only if you want a modern high pitch sound. I have a Kevlar head on a Premier Scottish pipe band drum and it is...

Re: Rogers BOP kit

No, you have a choice in the size of the metal flesh hoop when you buy 18 inch (and 16 also I believe) for this exact reason. Some bass drums hoops will "slide" off of a drum head with a "normal"...

Re: Gretsch RB, what heads are you using?

I don't have oversize drums but do have two Gretsch snare drums. I have been using the Aquarian American Vintage medium weight batter heads on all my drum set drums. Instead of a thin American...

Re: Lowrider Snare Stand

I made a low snare stand for a Firchie snare drum from the base of a cheap throne that had very large rubber feet. The feet did not open very wide at all so the result was a short bottom portion. ...

Re: Identify Bass Pedal

The footboard looks to me like it was taken from a Rogers Swiv-O-Matic. Can't tell much about the rest of the pedal. It is similar to the attached photo but not the exact same footboard.

Re: help with notation

No problem, glad to help solve the mystery. The Morello books were written when the rudiment list was shorter (26) and you can do a Google search on the National Association of Rudimental Drumming...

Good Morning, William F. Ludwig's brother was Theobald (sometimes called Theo, or Ted) and he died from a sales call on a government drum contract in the Spanish flu epidemic of 1918. This is a very...

Re: Gretsch/W&A? Hi hat clutch-how to use this??

I have several of these Walberg and Auge high hat clutches on old high hat stands. I don't have one in front of me but I don't think it is missing any parts, the wing nut should tighten the cymbal...

Re: UFIP ictus 75 TAMPANG gong/cymbal

There was a nice article on Andrea in the May 2013 issue of Drum magazine by Gino Robair ("Plugged In - The Hybrid Orchestral Percussionist", page 85). It mentions Andrea working for UFIP in 1974 and...

Re: UFIP ictus 75 TAMPANG gong/cymbal

If I remember correctly (becoming rarer as I age) the Ictus products were a collaboration between UFIP and a wonderful Italian percussionist named Andrea Centazzo. He tells the story in his book...

Re: Happy bday shelly

I have always wondered what Shelly thought of the "mis-print" on his name on some of the Leedy high hat stands. I personally think he would have got a kick out of it. Note to drum companies: Check...

Re: Leedy Project Begins

I have never heard of "clown barf" before, but I think it would be appropriate for some of the drums I have seen, including some new drums. Maybe one of the more honest drum companies (?) will use...
