Re: What age did you start drumming?

I started at the age of 14, nearly 15, as me and my two high school friends simultaneously got the idea that we should start a band.

Re: Densmore with the new Ludwig Mod Orange

I find it hilarious how horrible Densmore's drums sound. And he's playing top quality stuff! Wouldn't make a difference if he had the cheapest Made in China beginner drums...
... but he's just so...

My line of thinking is roughly as follows:

Re: Starr Fest

And I'm SURE they'll sound noticeably better than any other vintage Jazz festivals out there...

Re: Antique Cymbals found

I have a cymbal with the same stamp, or, actually, just "Composition," star and crescent and also the letters "WM 1942."
Possibly a marching cymbal from a Wehrmacht band?
It sounds exceptionally...

Re: Fake old k for sale

The typo in "Zildjian" might be an attempt to dodge possible lawsuits?
Like the Abidas sneakers...

I'd really like to hear these cymbals. They look very well made.

Re: 1920ís/30ís Ludwig

Re: Wrap Deterioration

I like the look of it. Don't rewrap, perhaps just conserve with some transparent glue or lacquer.

Question Weaker chik on worn hi-hats?

Just curious what is your experience with really used old hi-hats that have grooves near the edges smoothed out as a result of a long use.
Do you feel like you get a weaker, less defined, quieter...

Re: SONOR ID and value

Thanks again for...

Re: In Roma

Sadly, I can't help you, as I've only been to Rome once (also singing, incidentally), but I hope you and your daughter enjoy it very much.

Question SONOR ID and value


Somebody is selling a Sonor kit with Ludwig style lugs.
Probably 70s?
What period would you guess it's from? What do you think would be a fair price?

Thanks for any input!
