    I understand what you’re saying. I refrain from speaking negatively about the dead out of self respect. I’ve heard all the Buddy Rich stories too. He, like Ginger Baker were drummers...

    I’ve read or heard all the stories about Ginger Baker. When I saw them, I had heard about the conflict between Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker, but it wasn’t evident when I saw them. All three of them...

    Lefty, I think the Premiums had a little more lacquer on the interior of the shell. They also came in Red Glass like Lonnyís and Bronze Glass like mine.

    I think you made the right decision. I prefer die cast hoops for the exact reasons. I want my toms to make their statement and get out of the way; I don’t want them bleeding into the next drum.

    Thanks Kevin. I had a good time just spending some quality time with my daughter. The concert was great. It was a real treat to hear The Who with a 45 piece orchestra.

    Nice! It looks like the red erupts from the black. The black heads with red lettering make everything pop. Very classy. Do you plan on using your rack? The picture looks so uncluttered with only...

    Very eye catching. I know the pic is not of your actual drums, but do I see a black Opti mount on the rack tom? Shouldn’t the Reference have the aluminum Opta mount?

    It was definitely a DW with gold hardware. Both kicks had black heads. I thought the toms had reso heads, but I won’t swear to it. I was sitting on the left side (facing the stage) and the drums...

    The Who was fantastic last night. Daultry’s voice was as good as ever. Even Pete Townsend’s vocals were good. The 40+ piece orchestra was amazing. While this was billed as a Who concert, it was a...

    I take it youíve had the pleasure. When I saw The Who for the first time I was blown away by the sound produced by one guitar, bass and drums. There were no backing tracts. All three played lead. ...

    I really like Zach Starkey. I’ve seen him with Ringo’s all star band. He’s probably a more technically perfect drummer than Keith Moon, but there’s just something about Keith Moon’s playing that is...

    I think thatís my favorite finish in the Starclassic B/W. I recently purchased a Starclassic B/W with an outer ply of cedar. It has a beautiful deep tone. Iím sure the kit sounds equally great.

    I think the answer is in the serial number. I’d say they were made in 2001. On drums built after 2010, it will be the first two digits.

    As you know, Iím not a big fan of patina finishes, but that drum is something special. JN definitely has earned its reputation as
    a top shelf instrument.

    Thanks Gents. It looks like we got a huge break on this one. Dorian is a monster. I’ve lived in Florida since 1974 and have never seen anything pack winds of 185mph with gusts to 220.
