Re: Joe Morello on Buddy Rich #1

these are really great. I love Joe Morello's style. What is neat to see in these posts is how many great drummers seemed to be 'studying' , and in quite detail, other great drummers. That seems a...

Re: Roger Taylor - QUEEN

Same here, funny, its kind of 'involuntary' and so bad that I too have to work really hard (i.e. think) to NOT do it. On the other hand, I really like's Roger's emphasis on 2 with the open hat, and...

Re: Mick Fleetwood

Its an excellent autobio. I've read a few by drummers and his is right up there. Totally honest about his playing, including handicaps, and his addictive ones as well.

And yes, I think he...

Re: Gretsch orphans or new kit?

What's the total budget?
'Orphans' can be cheap, or damned expensive (like ebay), especially Gretsch. It is hit or miss on local used sites....so could be a long wait if you want all the same...

Re: Mick Fleetwood

DO you mean the part strating at 0:51 here?

It sounds like he plays right through on hats, snare, bass drum.
The 'toms' part (if they even are toms)...

Re: Possibly my first serious thread. Sexism.

You mean we should know archaic literature, Middle English, or that Madge is an expert in both? Neither can be considered common knowledge on a drum site.

Though I'd agree use of 'girl' for a...

Re: 22x20 kick playability

two different animals. One is a deep drum in which you hear more overtones, less fundamental. The other (if 24 x 14, or 24 x 16) not so.

To get to your question though 'feel' is very personal....

Re: DW snare drum ID

If a magnet sticks to it, it is not aluminum. Mr DW dealer should have told you that.
I am no DW expert, but to me it looks aluminum, not chrome-plated steel.
Nice looking snare !

Re: Josh Freese Drum Setup?

I always thought one could get the bass drum, which takes up your floor space right in front, over and out of the way by using a slave pedal. I often thought to try this...but don't own a slave...

Re: Putting band name on kick drum head, with multiple bands?

I've also heard (on here somewhere) of decals that stick on with very small magnets (i.e both side of reso), so small they would not affect too much of the movement of a reso head.

You can always...

Re: Possibly my first serious thread. Sexism.

And how is this progressive? Trans-men getting pregnant/giving birth will somehow swing the pendulum to eventually have all other men begin to understand a women's perspective? The majority of humans...

Re: Band members with bad timing

Correction - sorry, I re-read your first post and now see you are "up on a stage". Aha.

1. hold your tempo, don't be pushed around, or
2. tell them your issue
3. leave the outfit

Our bass...

Re: Band members with bad timing

If it's an informal thing, why not just stop mid-tune and say "you're rushing' or 'you're dragging' ...'this is going too slow, too fast'. 'Lets start over get it right.'?
Or hold your ground on...

Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

Teaching by fear, intimidation, nastiness...etc. ? IMO that is totally a stupid, uber-ego, power trip and ineffective. It doesn't work, in sports either.

Not seen the movie yet but saw the trailer...

Re: 8Mile's Gretsch itch

Burnt Orange would be my pick. Love that on Gretsch drums.
My guess is though, you play jazz at corporate or 'black-tie affairs' where perhaps a certain look will matter? if so, I would get...

Re: Doug Clifford’s 1969 CCR Drum Kit on Museum Display

One can't assume what a drummer toured with or shows up in pics of the day, was what was used in studio. Clifford went to the 18 hihats mostly in the live setting - to compete with amplification, as...

Certainly in many workplaces, and in my workplace, even though I work in a so called environment of 'higher-education'.
Unfortunately, its generational, and in some ways (like racism) will take...

Re: bass drum claws

In my experience all claws fit a standard bass drum hoop thickness, but some claws might require shorter or longer tension rods, to reach and tighten the lugs. So make sure the combination works.

Re: Jeez, Phil...

Well if not that, latest news is that if not murders-for-hire, Phil sure was procuring a lot of hi-class escorts ....and not paying for any of them. That will get some of the mob angry.

On the other hand, the beat in 'Must Have done Somebody Wrong' (T Bone Walker, Allman Bros.) seems...

Steppin' Out - Shuffle Pattern?

Re: Charlie Watts: Drum Mentor

Good story, but shouldn't Watts be giving the boy a cymbal.
