    The seller had a 14X11 left over so I scooped it up for a song. Going to put the Atlas mounts in it and use it on the left now. The 13 is now naked and will be used with just a snare stand.

    We played a fun venue last night. I brought the 13 along to use on the right. It won't fit on the left when using the riser. It was glorious. These drums just sing. The soundguy (who works for a huge...

    Boyhood dream fulfilled: Classic Maple

    When I was a lad at the turn of the 'decade of excess', my middle school had a gold sparkle Ludwig in the band room. I got to play it on numerous occasions for study hall to "jazz" band concerts. It...

    I like this rocked-up version of Cyndi Lauper's Time After Time by Quietdrive.

    Wow! i'd love to know how you tuned those black dots. I use them top and bottom and get pretty good tone but nothing like that.

    I've dabbled in the 4 piece over the years. Here's a few of my favorites. The Purewood is the one that got away for sure.

    You had me at EWF but I'm most interested in that left side hole-y china. That sounds divine.

    Getting to the point where this is art and not worthy of playing. I'd love to have drums as decor, and those certainly qualify. Really, a higher art form.

    That's an incredible brochure. I can only imagine the current 6th graders drooling over this like I did the Ludwig books of the early 80's. Such eye candy from Pearl. Well done, chaps.

    *played with the spirit of the original recording*

    That about sums it up for me. Nobody cares if it's note for note. Get the feel and tempo right and booties will shake.

    Gold works with the black in a classy way. Looks terrific and probably sounds better.

    Well, I just want to say that I played it outdoors last weekend and it was spectacular. Sounded so good uncorked in the wild. And what a naturally nice tone with IEM buds in. I'm in love!

    More money for perceived value? I suppose that's the arc we all go on. Start on a crappy kit and aspire to "the best". Then the reality sets in and you begin to realize simple can be better. But what...

    I've been on a snare drum trial most of this year, buying and selling to sample different shells. For the last few years, I've been in love with the Copperphonic and a Legend Bronze beast. I figured...

    ^ That would explain it. It's very, very close. I choose to use DW boom bases and double tom stand. I put Ludwig short booms on them so everything matches.
