Re: Poor economy for drummers, or something else?

Try and get some quotes for shipping from DHL. I've found them to be cheaper that UPS.

Re: Old K Alert...Old K Alert.. Man your stations man your stations...

In fact you're correct. It's hammered with a computer controlled automaton that utilizes a pre-selected hammering pattern applied via a servo controlled pile driver hammer.

In other words it's the...

Re: Old K Alert...Old K Alert.. Man your stations man your stations...

Some of those earlier new stamp are real foolers. They look for all the world like old stamps and sound that way too. Check out this one at 1:45 for example:

Wow, I never would have guessed that. Probably was an early type N.S., and no doubt one of the best ever seeing as how it was Mel that was the one who picked it out.

Re: Old K Alert...Old K Alert.. Man your stations man your stations...

I'm working on a hypothesis that not only does weight and bow depth determine a cymbal's overall pitch, but that hammering density does as well; the idea being that a cymbal that's considerably more...

Re: Old K Alert...Old K Alert.. Man your stations man your stations...

I agree with you Paul...IVa or IVb for sure. Even looks like it.

Re: All Night Long: check it out

The cymbals during most of that clip look like the ones that came along with the kid's drumsets at K mart. But then...right at the end with the very last cymbal crash, the cymbal that the camera...

Re: What year did the 5 Star Super Zyn's come out?

The earlier ones from the 1950's-1960's didn't have the 5 star in the trademark. That changed maybe in the late 60's or early 70's. The actual year I don't know for sure. Maybe one of the U.K. guys...

Re: What year did the 5 Star Super Zyn's come out?

No UFIP did not make the 5 star line. They look completely different from anything UFIP made. And they say "Made in England" on the trademark too.

Re: Istanbul Ride 20"

Yes it is. It's commonly referred to as a "pre-split". What's the weight?
