hi guys.
the name's jeannine, 16, from ireland annnd. well that's that. (:

i've played piano for years (getting grades 7 done asap to get 8 finished before university), violin for one, up to grade 5 theory, and now i'm on to drums.
been playing them for about a year now, and got the basics quick enough, but slowly i've hit a mental block and i've a phobia of improvising. not too uncommon i hope because i'm getting fed up of sitting behind the kit and playing a load of rubbish. started drums because i'm one of those people who just loves to try new things, and drums seemed the way forward since i know quite a few other who're happy to help out. and laugh at me. mostly laugh really, but it's all good banter. haha.
i go to a teacher, and not in a band- not really planning on joining on either tbh. i'm more of a music-for-the-craic sort of person. (:

at the moment, the favourite band would have to be sigur ros, but yeah, the aul itouch is filled up with such a range of material that really should not sit beside each other.
favourite band for playing drums with is .. don't exactly have one. hoping to scower the website looking for advice and tips really.

drum kit is a (quite pretty really, haha) CB Drums kit, with brand spankers new zildjian zbt's (cheers santa). looking for a set of new skins since i decided not to upgrade the whole kit just yet if i'm not gigging.

i joined DSA so that i might get past this block, because i'm starting to think the teacher keeps me on just to laugh at me. (nah, he's swell really.) i'm just looking for anything and everything really that might help me along- new ideas for fills and improv in particular though. also, because after a quick look around the admin's sound lovely, and people really seem to help each other out.

so that's that. hope to get to know some of you (:

First off...welcome Jeannine, and Tino.   To orient yourself with the entire sight will be quite beneficial to you both.  I have been at this drumming business for quite some time now and I have enjoyed this sight as much as anything else I have come across in the field.  I just wish I had more time to enjoy all it has to offer as far as information and opportunity.  Take advantage of these fellow percussionists, I think they (as well as myself) enjoy the attention.

Hi, I'm Allen in California. I've played for many years and right now I'm in a blues band. For acoustic gigs I use a 59 Slingerland cocktail kit and on electric gigs i go between a early 60's premier kit and  late 60's Rogers kit.

Hi Daryy, welcome.  Allen, it sounds like you have quite an interest in vintage kits.  I don't know much about the Premier kit, but the Slingerland cocktail kit I know is quite a find, and in the 60's,  Rogers use to claim the sound award for a long time with me.

Cool, another life long drummer.  Welcome Michael, you have come to very interesting place.  Drummers abound here.  Feel around a little bit with some more details about yourself and rake in the interaction.

Help ?
Looking for parts.
A master link for a bass pedal.
The bass pedal has a brass plate riveted to it.
It reads Sonar Signature Series  Horst Link #3198.
The pedal belongs to a friend who plays drums.
He has other (newer) pedals, but this is his favorite.
I manage a machine shop and the freind asked if I could repair it, but thought it may be easier to find the right part.
Any ideas or direct me to the correct forum would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks !
Bill

Bill:  Welcome to DSA

RE: The part you need to repair the Sonor pedal

My best advice is to contact a professional drum shop that can order the correct part.  You may live in a city that has a good professional drum shop that can order Sonor parts.  Or, you may check some of the large web-based operations.  Either way, getting the part that fits correctly is the best way to assure that the pedal will be able to perform as it was designed to do.
