New Bands

In addition to The Ratchilds and my teaching and recording session activities here in San Francisco I’m involved in two new bands that are being put together.

One is a guitar/drums duo where we loop various parts together live on stage. Nothing is pre-recorded. We should be ready to go live in a few months.

The third band is the latest one and will have 3 female singers backed by a full Rhythm Section. More details to come.

Sam Adato’s Drum Shop

If you are a drummer in the San Francisco Bay Area then you will be familiar with Sam’s shop.  The  Christmas before last Sam moved to Eugene Oregon and opened his drum shop up there.

I really miss being able to go to Sam’s shop, get the supplies I need or a needed repair and just hang out.  Sam really was the local “Drum Doctor”.  However all is not lost.  I find myself quite often checking out Sam’s website just so I can geek out on all the cool stuff he has, especially the vintage drums.

I have been buying a lot of products to keep the tension rods on my snare drum from backing out and detuning the drum.  None of these products worked for me and I was getting frustrated  Then I remembered something Sam told me about how to fix the problem.   I called him on the phone and he told me how to handle the situation.   All I had to do was go to the hardware store and pick up some hex nuts, washers and a small wrench.  Problem solved and it was very inexpensive.  ”The Doctor ” strikes again.

I look forward to visiting Sam at he new shop in Eugene.  In the meantime I have the website and I also find myself calling Sam quite often to say hi and for advice on the vintage Gretsch drum set I’m putting together.  Heck, I got one of the drums I needed for that set from Sam in his Eugene shop.

So, I’m proud to say that I’m still a customer even though there are some miles between us now.  Call him up and he will be happy to help you with your drumming needs.  He’s a great guy  and remember that there is no sales tax in Oregon so all you need to do is pay for shipping.  I still get all my stuff from Sam
