Drumming is also great.
I'm thinking that the Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart also has some cool stuff out there too.

I don't have much traditional minimalism. Terry Riley and Steve reich are my favourites that I have, I enjoy la monte young for his drone pieces, i love drone a lot

I do have a large electronic ambient/minimal collection and a fair amount of drone rock stuff

I posted this in the what are you listening to thread, but I just wanted to say how great blues sounds on Grados as we all know. Fact is, I have tons of rock and metal and a growing classic jazz collection, but not that much straight blues. I like Clapton, Neil Young, BB King, Robert Cray. But just don't own tons of blues.

 

My Dad passed away several years ago. This weekend, my Mom gave me a couple of his CD's. They sound stunning on my 225i through my dedicated rig:

 

 

From the 30's and 40's.... very dated....folk blues

 


I don't know enough about different blues to be articulate, Delta, Chicago, Memphis, etc. But, I know I like this. Junior Wells, Ike and Tina Turner, Mississippi John Hurt, Memphis Slim, John Lee Hooker-great stuff!

Don't forget Philip Glass...

 

I think that if one listens to ambient and other 'slow' electronic music, classical minimalism is not far away.

 

Philip Glass - Violin Concerto (Concerto Grosso No.5)

 

...picked it up from a friend...one of my favourites

I'd take them apart only if i knew exactly how to put them together with the same glue again.

This is my exact reason for asking…I'm not sure if they use the same type of glue as the plastic driver housings, the wood driver housing probably uses a different glue.

What do you mean by "Holding them against light reveals holes"??? I don't follow what you mean. Thanks for the response.

If you like traditional blues might as well start at the begining ...

When you hold a light on the driver and look through the back you can see the holes

OK, might as well have a memorial brew from Dogfish to go along with it. Anyone that enjoys Mr Johnson's music will note the reference to 2 songs on the label, "Hellhound On My Trail" and the hilarious "Traveling Riverside Blues".

Oh, I didn't know you were talking about the driver holes…I thought you meant the holes had something to do with disassembly/assembly, and the glue. :confused_face(1):

Got my first set of Grados weekend, the Sr60i. Right out the box, they sounded harsh but after a couple of hours of burn in, they sound pretty damn good. My only complaint is that they feel fragile. I keep thinking I'm about to break them.

With normal usage they will most certainly last years. Enjoy biggrin.gif

Congratulations! There not fragile, they just feel this way due too the weight of them…just take care of them, and try not too let the cups rotate 360 degrees, and they'll be fine, enjoy them!
