Re: Floor tom leg ID

Re: Ludwig Band Model Snare

Hey, Chris!
Nope, I haven't visited The House of Peart. Although it would be fantastic to see some of Neil's excess drums, I don't think I could take the arrogance of his friend. A couple of...

Re: Ludwig Band Model Snare

Actually, Chris, the bass player in my band is best friends with the gentleman who served as best man at Neil's wedding. He stores a lot of Neil's drums at his house in St. Catharines. Johnny, the...

Re: DIY Wood Blocks

Hello, guys!
Just want to report on my progress. My first "prototype" was a total disaster! As I thought, 3/4 inch oak muffled the sound far too much! It sounded like a kid beating on a log...

Re: DIY Wood Blocks

Hey, guys, especially Josh!

DIY Wood Blocks

Over the years, I've tried various wood blocks from vintage Ludwigs to newer plastic LP's. Some were good, others not so much. What I'd like to do is build my own. I'm not too bad at woodworking and...
