Is posting on a public forum that Qobuz are 'rip off bastards' your idea of rewarding a company that have given you unlimited high quality streams of every cheesy 1970s rock album ever made? ;)

Re: My latest obsession

Moon and Bonham, both dead aged 32. Rolling Stone magazine's top two drummers of all time. Who's your favourite, Stu? Yes very tragic. Watching interviews of Moon in the couple of years before his death, he was a complete mess. Pissed all the time and it should have been no surprise when he snuffed...

Re: My latest obsession

John Bonham was special. He really knew how to tune drums for the sound he wanted. They were mostly Ludwig i believe. The green sparkle kit on Royal Albert Hall 1970, the amber acrylic vistalite of Song remains the same. I am not sure what depth they had but the diameters were big. 26" bass, 13 or 1...

Re: My latest obsession

Hey Lindsay. Once miked up you can make any bass drum sound huge. Most bass drums of that era were 14" deep which is not deep by modern standards. How did 70's premier compare to other makes ? To be honest i have not heard enough of them - some are pretty rare and collectors pieces now which means t...

Re: My latest obsession

You wouldn't believe the amount of unnecessary crap under the hood of that amp. Told him if i were to modify it for him it would be a case of pulling bits out of it and binning them :lol: . Also told him to try nva so maybe you will have a new customer sometime.

Re: My latest obsession

Of course, the "other" famous 80s drums were made by Linn. :whistle:
Isn't that a different Linn? American?

Ringo played Ludwig drums - especially his snare sound was famous
He started out with Premier though.

Who plyed Premier ?Keith Moon, Clem Burke, Nicko Mcbrain to name three

Re: My latest obsession

Yeah i am building the bass and toms. Snare is a bit tricky although you can never have too many snare drums.

Sonor are made in Germany and their top range stuff is very very nice indeed. Zildjian are of course some of the best cymbals around.
