Re: What are the tonal differences between Ludwig & Rogers?

What tastes better, chocolate or vanilla ice cream? What color is better, red or green? What's the better car, Ford or Chevy? The question about Ludwig and Rogers drums is open ended. To me, the most...

Re: Buddy Holly Remembered

Here are a few from the early and mid 1960s. The picture with me on the drum riser was at a concert that we opened for The Association in South Holland, Illinois. The color photo is us with Chad and...

Re: Buddy Holly Remembered

Re: Another Delusional Ebay Seller

Once again, I urge buyers and sellers to check out the cost and convenience of using Greyhound bus line to ship drums from and to bus depots near your home. I found it much more pleasant to ship and...

Re: Another Delusional Ebay Seller

Here's a tip that I have found to be very successful. In my opinion, the asking price should include the shipping to the buyer's address. I always took an average shipping price to places in the...

Re: drums sets in Elvis, the movie

The few glimpses of the drums in the new Elvis movie show the same pattern on the unshaved bass drum as on Fontana's Gretsch drum set that he bought from Herb Brockstein in Houston.

Roland is buying all outstanding shares of DW

This really is not vintage drum news...YET! If Roland is, indeed, gaining a controlling interest in DW, there will be future pre-Roland DW drums and Roland era DW drums

That's what I'd like to do except for the fact that the guy who owns the shop is just a few years younger than me and just as likely to croak as me. Also, he'd sell the store in a heartbeat for the...

Re: Gretsch, what do you think I’ve got here?
