    I’ve seen pics of J drumming with Love As Laughter, I’ll try to find the pics :aliensmile:

    found it, OSX has a great site with tons of J pics, the J pic on drums is pic 1_10A, it’s labelled as J on drums as well so just scroll down & you’ll find it… :wink:

    I think the clear ludwig set may have been ruined. Supposedly it was black sabbaths or something at one time. I know George uses a mod orange vistilite kit.

    In this current interview, J talks about playing the drums himself while recording an album:

    Quote:
    The one criticism that consistently came up about Dinosaur Jr was that, as here, it was little more than a front for Mascis’ solo work. Not only did he write everything but he liked to play as many instruments as possible. In particular, drums – tricky when you have a fully paid-up drummer in your band.

    "I like to play the drums myself because I think it’s an important part of the sound. I have worked with drummers and they play something and I try to sing on top of it, but it doesn’t feel right. The guy’s playing it as right as he can, but it’s not the right feeling. I hate doing the same thing over and over again, so I would rather just play them myself and get it down first time.

    "I wouldn’t mind people playing other instruments, but not the drums…"

    there’s a cool still on FreeSoFree.net of J playing drums in the "Everybody lets me down" video (you can also download the video there in good quality)

    Whatever he uses, I have a better sounding kit.

    Man, I’m an arrogant bastard.
