Re: How have your drum sets evolved over the years?

"oh and my brush playing thatís evolved" As the prophet Bob Marley wrote: "Stir it up". After all of my years of drumming, I'm still a weak brush player.

We are in total agreement about the Slingerland internal
tone controls.

Re: How have your drum sets evolved over the years?

One thing about my drum preferences has never changed. I have always disliked the ringing sound from a metal snare drum or a wood shelled drum. I have always used a bit of dampening--just enough to...

Re: Welcome back...What happened?

Whether or not the questionable posts are by contributors from countries other than the United States, most of the phony posts are from people using Arabic names. I'm wise enough to know that "Abdul...

Re: Welcome back...What happened?

They post pictures of drums that are not their own or are not the brand of drums that the forum is concerning. They post scam offers to sell bogus products that may not even exist. They ask people to...

Re: Welcome back...What happened?

I was afraid that the scammers, who have taken the formerly-great Slingerland forum hostage had attacked this forum, too. Has anyone else seen what those bad people have done to that forum?

Re: Welcome back...What happened?

Same here, Robyn. We're a relatively small drum forum. But, we're a good friendly place that doesn't get side-tracked by politics or religion or other distractions found on other drum forums.

Re: Welcome back...What happened?

Maybe sabotage by one of the other drum forums that have alienated many of us.

Welcome back...What happened?

I was pleasantly surprised when I attempted to sign in a minute ago. I expected to be as disappointed as I have been for the past few days when all attempts to reach this forum failed.

Re: Anybody Have Experience With Drugan's Drums?

Is it that effing difficult to type the words DOWN BEAT? Not all of us are Ludwig shorthand savvy. It took me three readings of your post to come up with what drum set you were mentioning. I don't...

Re: Look at me or Listen to me drummer?

Bob;

I learned some "tricks" that make very simply played chops seem flashy or much more difficult than they really are. In the 60s, our band worked a lot with the top radio DJs in Chicago because...

Re: Look at me or Listen to me drummer?

I mentioned that drum risers were not in my comfort zone. In 1965, we opened for The Association. Playing on the rickety drum riser erected for this concert was not very pleasant to experience.

Look at me or Listen to me drummer?

This would be an interesting question to pose. Are you more of a "look at me" drummer or a "listen to me" drummer? I like odd ball wraps on my drums just as much as I like the old standby wraps and...

Re: How have your drum sets evolved over the years?

My drumming hero, Hal Blaine had a huge drum set in the recording studio along with every imaginable cymbal and percussive sound-making tchotchke. On live gigs he played with an economy of drums and...

Re: SlingerLeedy in black sparkle?

The northwest Indiana suburb of Chicago where I grew up had at least a half dozen music stores. The neighboring towns on both sides of the Indiana/Illinois state line had at least another half dozen...

Re: SlingerLeedy in black sparkle?

Look at the color chart that slingerfan posted. Your drum should be one or the other of those two wraps.

Re: SlingerLeedy in black sparkle?

Your answer does not give us a real idea of what the finish is. Do the sparkles cover the ENTIRE black background? Or are there occasional little sparkling flecks on the shiny black as in the...

Re: SlingerLeedy in black sparkle?

Is the wrap a sparkling black like a red sparkle or blue sparkle? Or is it solid black with little sprinkles of silver or gold or lavender flakes like this?

Re: Ludwig Blue & White Marine Pearl

Paint on the outside of the outer ply would make the finish on those drums way too fragile--more so than a satin flame wrap. Just think about putting a drum in a bag or a case and scraping it lightly...

Re: Show us your Satin Flame drums

Bob...I understand the avoidance of cases for your "working" drums. I have always used cloth drum bags. I still have the Mackintosh cloth drum bags that I used for my 1961 Rogers set when I bought...

Re: Ludwig Blue & White Marine Pearl

Isn't it also possible that a second ultra-thin clear ply with the color on the back side could be laminated on top of the original clear layer? It seems to me that paint on the outside of the top...
