Re: Marching Snare - what did I just buy?

Hey, Black label!
I think you did really well! For sixty bucks, it's hard to go wrong! How does the drum sound? What kind of heads are you going to use? Is it going on gigs? What is the...

External Damper on Reso Head

Hello, folks!
I've been playing around with a mid-nineties six-and-a -half inch deep Ludwig Rocker snare just for fun. I've had the rims powder coated in red as well as the faceplate of a...

Re: RIP Charlie Watts

Yep, that's about the same with me, Dan. He played for the song, not for his own ego or showmanship! Not many like that today.

Re: RIP Charlie Watts

Re: experts in 'really vintage' japanese drums?
