Re: Drum mic recommendations

Thanks guys. I ended purchasing the CAD set. I got it for 149.99. I figured what the heck, if I don't like them, I'll find a use for them somewhere else. What's 150 bucks-if nothing else, I will gain...

I am looking to simply mic my kit...

Re: Making $ playing drums

I agree with Larry. Drums support my musical endeavors through enrichment. Simply playing in front of a crowd is enough for me. However, sticks, heads, etc. wear out and need to be replaced. These...

Re: First gig in 2.5 years!

The period leading up to a gig is more nerve-wracking than actually playing. Once the first few notes are under your belt, you'll forget why you were nervous in the first place.

Re: Keeping stands/drums in the same position

So, how do you do the Sharpie method? Write a line on the smaller tube, then one on the larger tube that the small ones goes into? and match them up? I am using a Stealth Rack and I don't think I...

Re: BPM question

Thanks, guys. I was calling it 108 and she was saying 216. I just know of songs that are in the 200 plus BPMs, and they are WAY faster. But, it's true, music notation and BPMs really can be subject...

BPM question

I recently got into a slight argument with my vocalist on tempos and BPMs. And, I think maybe we were both right, to varying degrees. In straight 4/4 time, don't we count BPMs as quarter notes? What...

Re: I Need to Get Re-Motivted

This happens to all of us. I remember one time auditioning for a band, and they sent me a list of tunes they wanted me to know. Each song had a different drum nuance. Odd time, shuffle, a snare-heavy...

Re: Things you hate to have happen while drumming

Bass drum creap is the most annoying. It happened one time on CARPET!!! I figured I wouldn't need my official drum rug because the stage was carpeted, but my kick was inching forward. So was my left...

Re: Double Bass Drum Futility

Thanks everyone. I am counting the BPMs correctly. The video of me using the floating technique was just me showing one of the techniques I am trying. I do not play death metal and, quite frankly, my...

Re: Double Bass Drum Futility

Ya, if I had known it'd be such a long, arduous task to get good at, I probably wouldn't have bothered. It's not my style, either. I play classic rock. It just bugs me that others can do it so...

Re: Double Bass Drum Futility

that's a good point. Maybe I'm holding the beater too long on the head?? I'll have to look closer at that, thanks, Larry.

Re: Double Bass Drum Futility

Actually, now that I think about it, I never really told you guys where I'm failing. I'm not looking to do 200 BPMs or anything like that. I'm actually crapping out at 120 BPMs. some days I can hit...

Re: Double Bass Drum Futility

thanks guys. Beyond, I don't play heel down. the V-drums video shows me using a floating method that I had seen on Youtube. And, I probably practice it a half hour a day, I guess.

Re: Double Bass Drum Futility

Re: My New Studio Setup Look at the floor space

You can play it like this? Your floor tom isn't in your way? I also have a GibraltarStealth rack for my Gretsch kit. It's ok, but I have a hard time gigging with it. Too many variables to layout, no...
