Re: Drum Companies and Their Worst Ideas

I remember an ad in MD in the late 70's or so for the "Adda-Tone". It was some kind of clear "partition" that went inside a tom that was supposed to create two separate pitches from one drum head....

Re: Evans Calftone heads

They're very similar to Remo Fiberskyn heads. I have one on a Yamaha older stage custom snare (luan/whateverwood shell). Tuned medium low, that drum has a HONK that's unbelievable. I saw a review on...

Re: A rookie question about tuning my Ludwig’s.

Re: A Contrast in Solos

The first date I was supposed to go on with my girlfriend at the time was *pre-empted* by a gig with my band. She came to see me play (unbeknownst to me) but ended up marrying me anyway. That was 35...

Re: A Contrast in Solos

Re: Ludwig Super Sensitive versus Rogers Dynasonic

The Ludwig SS snares do stay under some degree of tension in the off position, maybe not as much as when they're on, but they don't go completely slack.

Re: Drum Companies and Their Worst Ideas

Anybody remember the Firchie "time machine" snare drum? It was a cross between a roto-tom and a trixon Telstar.

Re: Drum Companies and Their Worst Ideas

Re: Drum Companies and Their Worst Ideas

Re: Drum Companies and Their Worst Ideas

Slingerland's GrandStands......weren't they *triple* braced or something like that? They could be used as jack stands for your car.
