Re: I Have Never "Gotten" Gretsch Drums

If you like that style of jazz, they were great players. I have no affinity for what they do. Jazz ceased being of interest to me with the outset of bop in '40's. The only one of that group of bop...

Re: I Have Never "Gotten" Gretsch Drums

I'm still not, shall we say, enamored with Gretsch drums after watching that video. First, the sound of Ambassadors on toms grates on my nerves like nails on a blackboard. They sound so metallic and...

Re: My Christmas Present

Whatever floats your boat. I have found that the second generation Slingerland Set o Matic holders I have don't choke the rack tom's tone at all. Those are OK, but a lot of the usual other suspects...

Re: My Christmas Present

Yours is a common problem, and it used to perplex me, and it's why I generally don't use bass drum mounting hardware. Mount your rack toms on a snare stand and buy and attach Booty Shakers to the...

Re: Doug Clifford

Solid rock drummer, not fancy, doesn't have Buddy Rch chops, but gets the job done. Reliable player and a very nice guy. We met years ago. And BTW, loves DW drums, which isn't surprising, as he...

Re: Interesting Video

DW did a series year ago called Timeless Timber and the drums were constructed of very old logs dredged up from Lake Erie, I think. The DW marketing machine had a field day with these drums, and as...

Re: Interesting Video

I can't say that one set sounded better than the other. They didn't sound the same to me, just different, and not in a bad way. Each set is different. Why? Because wood doesn't stay stagnant over...

Re: My Christmas Present

I get it. You got the right shells, hardware, etc. It's all good.

Re: Early 60's Sling. snare with Mardi gras finish value?

The seller probably has not been paid yet.

Re: Slingerland Super Set o Matic Tom Arms

Those are pretty readily available on Reverb and Ebay.

Re: My Christmas Present

Nice to get a Camco set if that's your thing, but so much has been changed. Definitely a player's set.

There was a Camco set for sale for a while up here on CL. They were natural wood finish and...

Re: Try to concentrate your attention only on the drummer and his cymbals

I watched the video and noticed one thing: When the girl singer turns her face profile, she bears a striking resemblance to Barbra Streisand. Can you imagine Streisand with tattoos, all metal'd out...

Re: A "rare" Rogers Luxor on eBay - only $9,995!

I have a rusty LP cowbell that I think is worth $5000. What are my chances of getting it? ;)

The seller is on drugs.

Re: I Have Never "Gotten" Gretsch Drums

I'm lucky that I can probably buy anything DW markets at a discount, and perhaps Gretsch drums as well. I've never asked my AR guy. Thing is, I still have zero interest in owning Gretsch drums. I...

Re: DW Buys Slingerland Name

I agree all around. I get great artist support from DW, and the drums look and sound great. Mine are almost nineteen years old now.

Re: DW Buys Slingerland Name

I have a four year old grandson too, so I get it. He's here a lot. I call him the Little Hurricane.

I Have Never "Gotten" Gretsch Drums

Back in the '80's, I got a six ply round badge Gretsch set, mostly because I had never owned Gretsch drums and wanted to discover what all the fuss was about.

Survivor was a pretty popular band...

Re: Dino Danelli Clip: "Do You Feel It"

Thanks for buying it. I know all the remaining copies got dumped into Rock Bottom Remainders at some point, which was a bit of a letdown for me, but a standard procedure in the publishing world. I...

Re: Calling on Slingerland Experts

I may be mistaken, but I don't think that beautiful mahogany shell is particularly expensive on the market or collectible, so I'd do what you want with it. My choice would be to get it professionally...

Re: DW Buys Slingerland Name

I loved this response! LoLoLoLo

Mark, I just want you to know that I don't say these things you to be mean-spirited. I just wonder why you constantly flip drums. It's really none of my business...

Re: DW Buys Slingerland Name

I saw the offshore Buddy Rich drums at 2008 NAMM and chatted with Cathy Rich for a while in her booth. She really knew very little about the drums, other than they were inexpensive and were very...

Re: DW Buys Slingerland Name

Well then, what do you call what you do? Do you honestly expect us to believe that you don't go looking for drums for the purpose of flipping? That appears to be exactly what you do, and you've been...

Re: Anybody have Dealings With Sergio Bellotti at 247 Drums?

I should have paid closer attention to Bellotti's feedback.

Re: DW Buys Slingerland Name

Very true. Buddy gave a set to Johnny Carson at one point. He'd then call Bill Ludwig and order a new set. It was usually Bill Ludwig, someone Buddy never liked.

Re: DW Buys Slingerland Name

That's probably correct, Howie, in fact, I'm quite sure it is true that some of us don't have the same deals as others. Most MI companies have grades of discounts they offer to artists. When I came...
