Re: Nuggets of hard won wisdom

Playing related, I actually start the first song a little slower than the tempo in my head before I start. That way, it usually hits it about right. I did screw up that aspect on the first gig with...

That must severely limit your choices ;) ;) ;)

Re: Does playing covers change you?

Agreed - both Lar's! ;) I've lost count of the number of players I see who can't "pound 2 & 4" in a musical way. Every new musical experience is worthwhile, especially if it's something outside of...

Re: 15" snares

The metal shell 15" snares sound great in shallow sizes, if not a little one dimensional. We've gone much deeper with the stave shell. Partially because we can engineer out errant high overtones...

Re: 15" snares

Tuning range is obviously biased towards the lower registers, but correctly designed, you can get some great toneful upper tuning performance too. It's actually quite a difficult design balance. If...

Re: A Guru artist in North Wales

Deal! Is it run on a Thursday night? I can probably sneak one in on a return trip to the Wirral, if only to stop that Floegel chap using a wimpy trad grip when it clearly doesn't suit him ;)

Re: Band at the wrong gig. Full report - videos & photo's

7/8 - 4/4, pretty radical in a pop song of the day. Yes, a hammer would have prompted a suitably reciprocal response ;)

Martin didn't actually play the drums in any meaningful way on the day, but...

Re: The sound I like

If head sustain really becomes an issue in the studio, it's nothing that some gates & a bit of compression can't sort out. Alternatively, you might wish to try cranking the resonant heads a bit more...

Re: A Guru artist in North Wales

Aha! From the title, I was concerned that I may have inadvertently signed a random druid in one of my more lubricated moments, but I see you've imported one of these rare beasties. Looks like fun -...

Re: Gretsch Catalina Ash Snare - Replacement Batter Head

Major props to you for being a friend in his time of need. I'm sure pulling his strings a little will help lift his mood too :)

Re: Taking kick pedals on a plane

I would place it in check luggage. Some airlines and/or airport security may consider anything metal & heavy as a potential weapon. It's just not worth the hassle.

Re: Phantom Drums

Very cool. We've seen this done before, but the fascination never goes away. Stunning definition BTW! :)

Re: 15" snares

I agree, there's limited choices if you want to use a dedicated speciality snare head, but as someone who designs instruments such that speciality heads are mostly redundant anyhow, I'm fine with it...

Re: 15" snares

I'll add you to the list. You're currently number 337 ;)

Pictures up hopefully at the end of next month :)

Tuning range was one of the big challenges with this drum. To create something that...

15" snares

We produced a 15" snare as an R&D piece a while back, & we were so pleased with the unique ability in this size, we decided to include it in our new Tour series snare lineup. We're producing the...

Re: Your thoughts on this DW Collector Series kit

Finer threads, in themselves, don't make the drum sound better, but they do make it easier to make it sound better, if tuning accuracy is important/applicable to you. Also, with very slack head...

Re: Your thoughts on this DW Collector Series kit

Bo, sorry man, I need to call you on this. DW are known for making all kinds of claims, but the claim that a finer thread makes for finer tuning ease is completely true. It's straight forward...

Re: New York Pro snare drum

All looks generic Asian parts bin to me, but for the money, there's enough value in the parts (die cast hoops, etc) to make it worth a punt. So long as the shell is in good order, you should have a...

Re: Snare buzz help - sorry

No. Any snare drum that's tuned even remotely within "normal" range will buzz with the wires engaged. Only if the heads are very slack, or the drum is otherwise "dead", will it not resonate...
