Re: Is there such a thing as an 18" Downbeat Bass Drum?

Agreed....however......the one I used to own was a true Jazzette kit with the 12" x 18" bass AND a shell mount cymbal holder. My dad special ordered it that way :) And the tom holder was centered on...

Re: Is there such a thing as an 18" Downbeat Bass Drum?

The bass drum HAS to be 12" x 18" with the rail tom holder on the center of the shell for it to be a real Jazzette bass drum. If it's a 14" x 18" bass drum, it is not a true Jazzette bass drum. Also,...

Re: Gretsch Round Badge Aqua Satin Flame 14 inch floor

There's a difference between making a profit and pricing yourself right out of the market.....if he's stuck with it, he's priced himself right out of the market, and that is not good business sense.

Re: Gretsch Round Badge Aqua Satin Flame 14 inch floor

That's just bad business. You need to move the product if you want to make a profit from it....basic business 101. Holding out for the highest price just for, let's face it, just plain greed is no...

Re: Gretsch Round Badge Aqua Satin Flame 14 inch floor

I'm inclined to agree that this guy's prices are way out of whack. The guy is truly dreaming if he thinks he's going to get anywhere near those asking prices. The market now (as in today) just...

Wow I kinda dig this guy! Three things that do it for me: 1) drums that actually sound like drums! 2) a solo that seems actually thought out rather than just a random solo of "hey! look what I can...

Re: A Contrast in Solos

Louie does make it look easy, because he's a relaxed player. Mike looks like he's having a stroke because...well....he just tenses up and tries to look intense. Both are good drummers, but as others...

Re: Ludwig Super Sensitive versus Rogers Dynasonic

"Better" is subjective. They each have their own sound. Which sounds better to you is up to your ears.

Rogers Dynasonics are no harder to tune than any other drum. Snare wire setup is a different...

Re: Old Man Rant: How hard is it to spell cymbal?

I wasn't trying to be political either, just tell it like it is. If that offends others, well...I'm sorry that the truth offends you but it's today's reality. Deal with it.

Re: Ludwig Super Sensitive versus Rogers Dynasonic

If you want to hear what a Dynasonic in all its glory sounds like, check out Louie Bellson's album Thunderbird or Buddy Rich's album Big Swing Face. That's the definitive sound.

And I agree with...

Re: WFL or Rogers

If one has to go for financial reasons, I'd say part with the Rogers as, like I said above, you'll get more for them.

Re: WFL or Rogers

Historically, Rogers seem to bring more $$ than WFL drums do. Now if they had the Ludwig name instead of WFL, the WFL drums would be worth more. Collectors are fickle that way.
