Re: red drums in the attic.......

For the past several months, and maybe even a couple of years or so, I've seen the decline in the sale of vintage drums gain momentum. The reason for this is because those around my part of Canada,...

Re: Sonor Hilite Black Diamond Drum Set Price

Beautiful drums.. Sonor's quality and engineering is second to none. My favorite drum company. Those drums no doubt sound like a nuclear bomb and the fact that it's a rare maple shell even makes it...

If your referring to the new atlas mount, then I've had it on my 6 ply big beat 13" tom and also had it on my bass drum to mount my 20" ride cymbal and it was absolutely solid, looked sleek, and...

Re: We lost another icon. . . RIP DJ Fontana

I had stumbled across this just last week. Great interview done in a few series
with different tunes. Great guy and a solid, creative drummer. He literally was THE first
rock drummer on tv !...

Re: Cruise

Hi Jaghog-
I'm not sure if your question was for me, but if so, then the

Re: Cruise

Hi Jeff ,

a click for back tracks. The cruise only wanted 4 musicians instead of 5, so keyboardist is out.
Anyway, he's got...

Re: Cruise

Hi Mark,

Yes ! Plenty of Wings and Beatles, and some newer solo
McCartney stuff. Although the set is pretty slick, clocking in
at 45-50 minutes, so the vocalist had to choose the biggest ones....

Re: So much for the ludwig p-88

Yeah, it is a bummer. You'd think Ludwig would even at least make a diecast version of the original P-32 with drum key bolts, but no, not even that. Ludwig's engineering department needs an overhaul....

Re: What's wrong with this CL ad? :)
