    Rocket toms are great but can be a total pain to position. Roto toms look pretty clumsy/unattractive, but are very handy and more flexible/adaptable than rocket toms. Both sound great live - I was...

    At this time, it doesn't get played. At some point I'll play it again, but with it's age and rarity, it'll never be a main snare again. So for the foreseeable future it's a keepsake - I suspect it...

    I didn't know stainless steel (generally) wasn't magnetic. Can't say I've ever thought to put a magnet to it. The only thing I think I've put a magnet to is one of my snares as I always thought it...
  4. So what should I do about my Custom Classic?

    I own this wonderful Custom Classic. I bought it from Steve White 20 years ago last month, and it had plenty of play in my care, not to mention plenty of play in his. However, it's not in as minty...

    It means "a stupid person". Origin: mid 16th century English: variant of "pillicock" meaning "*****" (the correct anatomic term for the phallus), the early sense of 'pillock' in Northern English

    Some do - some bands commit to making sure all bands on the bill are treated equally, and will be sure to have dinner with the support bands and crew every night. Lynyrd Skynyrd appears to be one of...

    LaBrie went through a really bad patch at one point, not being able to hit anything. He came out of it though and from what I've seen has been much better. But for a while he sounded awful, both in...

    It's a great one if I do say myself - I use it a lot! Another fun one, not used so often these days, is plonker. As in "Did you hear Johnny bet the rent money on Shergar's Ghost and it came in last?...

    Ok, so I didn't go the whole hog (because it's just too much grief to pull the entire rack apart, pull out a bass drum and remove three of the four toms) but today I gave my a idea a little mock up....

    Thinking about this a bit more, I'd be tempted to use a piece of rack bar to mount the toms. Some time after the triple tom stand I made up above, I went to using two front racks tied in the middle....

    Yes, they are. Thick shells, lots of projection and volume. Still warm enough to be played subtly, but naturally not as articulate as an MMX for example

    Turns out, I'm seeing Amon Amarth later this year. They're doing a few UK gigs with Arch Enemy, so I'm going to the Brixton Academy show. Truth be told, I'm going for Arch Enemy, but I'll happily...

    Still one of ours ;) Ol' 'Arry is originally from Leytonstone where I currently work, used to live a stones throw from where I currently live. I'm not surprised he upped sticks from both places!...

    Well, it's certainly different. I like your ingenuity.

    Some years ago, I decided to go triple toms on my kit, and I wanted them centred over two kicks. Problem in that is the left and right toms...

    Can be muddy live though. Maple cuts through beautifully when it comes to rock n roll, where mahogany can be left sitting under the instruments and blurring with itself. Acoustically though, at home,...
