    This. There were a handful of 17" or 18" deep kicks in the late 80s like Yamaha Turbo Tour Customs and Pearl CZX, but the big selling series at the time (Pearl MX/MLX, Tama Granstar, etc.) were 16"...

    In the mid 70s Slingerland offered a 5 ply shell. Great rock drums similar to the 6 ply Ludwigs at the time. Up until the early 80s you could order either a 3 ply maple/poplar with re rings or the 5...

    It doesn't sound like making money is in the cards for your band. My mindset is if you play a gig, someone is making money and the band deserves a cut. While that seems like commons sense, I've...

    Kenny was playing Slingerlands when I saw John Couger opening for the Kinks in 1980. I could see that long script Slingerland logo clear across the Spectrum.

    ^When you think you're hearing great vocals and then there is a Milli Vanilli moment. In general the pop acts have taken it too far with the lead vocal track.

    #1 is my Tama Superstar kit. I had 8"-15" rack toms although I could never get comfortable with the full setup. I settled on 2 up and 1 or 2 down. Great kit.

    I got on a kit at GC years back. My buddy, who had a beautiful DW kit at the time, thought the MCX was the best sounding kit in the shop hands down. It was hard to disagree.

    If you've found a niche, play for the love of the music and are having fun, that's great. That's the path your band chose.

    Two hours is my limit. On the way home from Crue during the Dr. Feelgood tour, we were joking that the concert was like "Hello...great to see you....good night."

    I've never been a fan of his DW sound either and I love the sound of DW kits. As far as the Vibrafibe process, I'm not sure if it was available at that point. It was not mentioned in a February 1997...

    Ironically back in their prime, people couldn't stand VH because of Roth and didn't like Rush because of Geddy's vocals.
