Re: Evans EQ Pillow

I also use them in all of my bass drums. I think they only come in one size, but you are not using it to dampen the reso head, only the batter, so the length is really irrelevant. It comes with some...

Re: Universities and Music *sigh*

My advice, if you are dead set on college go get an engineering degree. Play in bands on the side and date girls in the music dept. When you graduate with a degree that is actually useful, then move...

Re: A rear line day - mini report.

Mike, I wasnt saying that you are full of BS. I am saying that Clem's reason for leaving doesnt hold much water. I have no doubt that you are just reporting on what you read.

Re: A rear line day - mini report.

Im calling BS on this. I have actually been inside of the SIR warehouse in NYC. It is the size of an airplane hanger, and there were literally thousands of kits. I dont think you could pick a major...

Re: A rear line day - mini report.

That is exactly what I was thinking. I am sure there are numerous smaller drum companies that I have never heard of. But if I walked up and saw that kit on the stage as a backline I would have been...

Re: Standard DW9000 and heel-toe

Wait. What? Heel toe is just a way, like the slide or constant release, to get quick doubles. It was something I was taught years ago to play the quick triplets for punk. I also know quite a few...

Re: How LOUD were the classic rock bands??

I experienced a rather strange phenomenon at a show recently. It was a collection of stoner rock/doom bands at a club in Boston. These bands were deafening, which is pretty much how I prefer my...

Re: How LOUD were the classic rock bands??

Remember, the guitarists were playing 100 watt heads with no master volume. Often times multiple heads to project the sound because the PA systems sucked. In one of my bands the guitarists play...

Re: My New Drum Kit [w/ Pictures]

The all maple PDP's are very good drums. Looks like you got yourself a nice set at a good price. Those will last you for years. Ask for your Christmas present early so you can start enjoying them.

Vacialte? Is this some type of new drum technique that I am not aware of. Like a samba or rumba?

Re: What's your take on electronic drum sets?

I would say that in your situation an electronic kit would be a fine choice. I wont profess to be an expert on electronic kits, but I would say that for a begineer you could get away with a small...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Got everything you see here for free. Actually it was part of a set with about $700 worth of cymbals that I paid $500 bucks for. Already sold the cymbals and made my money back plus some. I held on...

Re: Snare Choice for Punk Gig

The fact that you are worried about what specific gear to play for a punk show hurts my soul a little bit. I grew up in hardcore/punk bands and the ethos was always "play whatever you want, its...

Re: Guitarist comment on drummers

I have a hard time with this whole conversation. It seems like so many of you want drumming to be this linear thing where there are certain requirements that must be met to be "good". So many of my...

Re: Old timey drums from Sears

I am pretty sure Silvertone was the Sears brand drum set. I remember seeing them in the catalog when I was a kid. I do believe they are still making drums to this day.

Re: What are acrylic drums??

Acrylic is really just Plexiglass under a different brand name. It has a high impact resistance which makes it great for drums. I have played the Crush acrylics and really liked the dry sound they...

Re: Guitarist comment on drummers

Re: Band PA ownership options - thoughts, experiences

Where are you playing that you are providing the PA on tour? I have toured half of this country in various forms of tours and have never brought our own PA. In fact the only reason our band even owns...

Re: Band PA ownership options - thoughts, experiences

My band uses option A. However, in our case the singer owns the PA so its a little different. We all have our gear and he has his. His "instrument" is the PA. so he bought it and maintains it like...
