Re: Did this Ludwig snare system actually work?

Hey Rob is that really you, or someone borrowing your name? If it is you, it was good to see you at Bob’s chili party this year.

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

Re: Drum Companies and Their Worst Ideas

I remember the drum frame. The shop where I ordered my blue kit was a dealer. It was a neat idea, particularly if you tend to “slouch” forward while playing. It Took the drum rack to the next level,...

Re: Yamaha Maple Drums

Snare number seems to indicate it’s a Recording (9000) series. It is a wood shell or steel?

Re: We lost another icon. . . RIP DJ Fontana

I was working with a cover band for a short time... the “elvis” was a student of Ray Parks who I guess was Elvis’ karate I Structal well.

I think they're fine, and the mount method (string, ribbon plastic strip) should follow the drum they are being put on.
