Re: Snare vs. Room

If you don't want to invest too much I'd suggest a steel snare for this purpose, an older Pearl or Tama offering. The Pearl Chad Smith snare is also a nice rather inexpensive snare with cut. Steel is...

Re: Annoying store experience.

If you care about the store, tell the owner and get counter-dude's arse fired. Sounds like an awful employee. Good of you to try shopping there.

Re: Get off your drummer's throne and

Soooooo.....is that it? That's the drum-related story to share?

A vibrant exchange takes a catalyst and sharing. Stir the pot, or watch it boil, agree or disagree.

Lurking is fine. But one...

Re: 60 second drum lesson

I quite like that rudiment and use it.....but I'll be damned if I can do it that fast around the kit.

Re: Sometimes, it all becomes so worthwhile :)

Congratulations! It must be gratifying to make some headway like this in the sea of drums, brand loyalty and endorsement.
I guess one route is through producers - who make studio suggestions like...

Re: Band leaders

Larry sorry but your guy sounds really impossibly hard to work with. Why *not* tell somebody what key its in? Or some plan for the songs for an eve. I'm sure he's a great player. If the shoe fits.......

Re: Drummers As Leaders

Mikel, you clearly have an axe to grind, so no need to reply to my post, which pertained to the OP's. Not my problem you're not getting laid lately.

Re: Drummers As Leaders

Hmmm I'd have to disagree. There is an even much longer list of great (and very influential) drummers who were NOT the band leaders.....John Bonham comes to mind.... as well as a zillion others.

Re: Miking demo. What do you think?

Very nice, Bonham-esque sound. Your kit sounds great. It'd Be nice to compare with no reverb or EQ at all.

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

Donald Fagen's (Steely Dan) recent view, excerpted from Rolling Stone:

" Suffice to say that Whiplash has nothing to do with actual jazz unless you consider it to be a species of martial arts, as...

Re: My personal list of rock and roll's top cowbell moments

This little diddie from Ringo/Beatles may pre-date any on the list so far. (my guess is George Martin is playing it).

Vintage Drum Tuning anomaly

I refinished another 60's 3 ply floor tom today, put heads back on and tuned it up. I noticed and marvelled how, after the tension rods are screwed in finger tight, that the 3 ply floor toms tune up...

Re: Anybody rockin 13-16-20?

Surprised to hear 2 people already mention 15's.
I think its a great size, but thought it surely to be more uncommon.

Re: Smaller thinner kicks with good sound- ideas?

The 'low note' comes from the diameter, not the depth. The depth does create overtones perceived as deeper, but the pitch note is mostly diameter. Shorter depth really means less sustain. Thats what...

Re: Researching my First Vintage Kit, Suggestions Please :)

Early 60's Slingerland or Ludwig 3 ply mahogany-polar-mahogany.
