Re: How will live music performance change in the (near) future?

I didn't post a video, nor did I endorse any, so yeah, I think I'm in the right forum and trying to answer the OPs question.

Re: How will live music performance change in the (near) future?

Well, we had a beautiful day here in NYC yesterday, and everyone was out in droves! Beaches and boardwalks were packed and parks they can't close were also crowded. While there are people that are...

Re: How will live music performance change in the (near) future?

I can speak as a New Yorker. I live in Queens, which was the center of the epicenter. The pandemic was very real here. Everyone knows multiple people who have died or been sick. I was sick myself. So...

Re: Slingerland Black Diamond Pearl

I agree.

While they can be pretty awkward and generally a pain in the neck when trying to position your tom, once it's set, it's set. And you can get it in almost any position, so I'm not sure...

Re: Slingerland Black Diamond Pearl

Maybe you can go with the mount I pictured below. They're cheap and much simpler with less things to go wrong. Just a thought...

Re: New MIJ find - Cadet badge - any input

Yeah, that looks like a great pick-up. Heck, you can't buy a decent lunch for $25!

I don't know from experience, but I hear the center lug MIJs can be a little on the flimsy side, so maybe you...

Re: Need recommendation for a set of drum silencers

I don't have experience with anything you mentioned, but I did do the "Ringo trick" drumFX mentioned for a time using thin dish rags and it worked pretty darn well at muffling. Rebound of course...

Re: Help identifying this kit please.

I don't see that as a pile of scrap. They look pretty decent to me.

Looking at the interior of the bass drum, they are not some cheap MIJ stencil kit. The wood looks better than luan. Must be a...

Re: Leedy

Thanks for that.

It just seems pretty common on Leedy kits.

Re: Stan Leveys Ludwig drums

I read his book, Stan Levey - Jazz Heavyweight, and it really got me going on his drumming. He had a great life story, not all good, but very interesting. He played with most of the greats of jazz...

Re: Leedy

DrumBob has a Leedy in this same color, so I agree, it could be original. This color seems kind of rare except on Leedy kits. I'm not sure why, it's a pretty color.

That price looks pretty good...

I wonder what kind of patina they're going to have after a year or two out in the weather?

Re: Reason Why This Luxor Snare is So Expensive?

C'mon, the guy told his nagging wife, ok, ok, I'll put it on EBay. "See hon, there it is, it should get a bite any day now!"

Re: Time For Some Fun

Ah yes, Joe Morello!

All around good guy and a real standout drummer. And I could actually survive, and probably even enjoy, quarantine time with him, unlike Buddy Rich, whom I'd probably have to...

Re: Time For Some Fun

Well, we'd probably kill each other if we were actually quarantined together, it would be Buddy Rich and his Slingerlands. He was a real SOB, but I'd put up with his crap to learn some things from...

Thanks for the cool vid, it's a nice little distraction, and boy, do we need distractions right now! Glad you still have that kit, it looks very nice.

Re: I'd very much like to hear this one

No worries, with the tanking world economy, he could very well die with those cymbals. He gambled, and he lost.

Re: Anyone still planning on going to the Chicago Drum Show?

Fortunately, our lockdown won't be to drastic. You can still go for a jog, but not in a group of 5, or shoot hoops by yourself, but not a full court game with 10 guys and no gatherings in the park...

Re: Anyone still planning on going to the Chicago Drum Show?

I'd be surprised if that show would still go on.

Here in NYC, it seems like every venue I've seen has cancelled everything up until July or thereabouts. But honestly, the Corona problem looks to...
