    For the OP, here's the 1996 snare drums catalogue which features the drum. The only thing I can't remember was the shell thickness. I know it's single-piece maple shell with two solid rings (glued...

    I'm sure it would survive life on the road, as any other working musical instrument. But I know I'd never have gigged it, nor likely played it at all had I bought it. All academic really, I was 16 at...

    Do you still have the original head? It was a fiberskyn style head with the 50th anniversary logo printed on it. Would certainly add to it's value for a collector.

    Lovely drums those - I remember...

    Apart from the badge and air vent location, it looks the same as my 4214D snare. Except that's chrome-over-brass, and circa 1977-80 (I think)

    Absolutely. It walks all over every other mounting system (for these types of drum) there is, including L-arm. It's just so unobtrusive, minimalistic and simple. I've long said if I was to have a set...

    Not necessarily. I've seen wraps taped the full way round with thin tape that holds tight without leaving gaps. Equally though, it could be adhesive. Only one way to find out for sure...

    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...
  13. 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!...
