Re: 2 ply resonant heads

I've found several people on here said they used them on their Fl. toms to tame them down a bit. My 14" rings for ever, so I tried a super2 Aquarian on the reso. and a performance 2 on top. I like...

Re: The sound I like

It was going onto the studio that caused a guitarist to stop hounding me about taping up my drums. It's been many yr. ago. We went around about it quite a bit. I remember telling him,how bout we rap...

Re: Yamaha Studio Custom Drums

Now there's idea. I've got some old tour customs. As far back as I can remember they were always called tour and tour custom. They are birch and mahogany. Before recording, and tour, they were 5000...

Re: 2014 Yamaha Stage Custom

Congrats. I bet that is, a step up. Not taking anything away from the old Pearls. They were great in the 90's. That's quite a nice kit, I bet I could be real happy with that kit. Happy playing.

Re: Vintage Snare Drum Collectors?

It's ok. I don't think I have the best head on it(Evans EC reverse dot). I put that head on when I was playing country, and tuned it low. I've been using the steel Yammie all the time now. When I gig...

Re: Freddie Gruber: Is It Necessary to Know Drum Rudiments?

I think if I'd learned rudiments as a kid, I'd be a lot better player today. After 40+ yr. I'm just now learning the dbl. and triple stroke rolls. Lol. I didn't have any self discipline though, so it...

Re: leaving the kick beater on the bass head?

Well there you have it. A pro advocating burring the beater. I will say this, Bill is by far more knowledgeable, and experienced than I will ever be. The heel toe technique lends itself to this. It...

Re: leaving the kick beater on the bass head?

I think dead heading is a sin. Even if some of the pros advocate it. I've never done it. I don't leave my sticks in any of my other drums, or cym. Heel up, down, continuous release, or heel toe, it...

Re: Flatfoot Technique?

There's a exercise that I saw on you tube, Derek I think. He was playing a few bars of 1/8's then 1/8 note triplets, then 1/16th's. After you've done that you go back down to the triplets, then 1/8's...

Re: Flatfoot Technique?

I'm not an expert and can only play around 160 heel up and continuous release. My observations have been that a lot of players playing as fast as you're talking about, are using triggers, for the...

Re: Good 'music filming' camera?

Re: so my band wants to do top 40s...

I think you should try it. Those gigs can be a lot of fun. That kind of music is not hard to learn. Just catch all the stops and starts, and play a beat similar to the original. The challenge isn't...

Re: are the constant release and heel toe techniques the same?

I think there is a lot of difference. I'm working on both and not proficient at either, but constant release is my best at the moment. I think most people play doubles with heel toe, just like you do...

Re: question to bass drum slide technique users

I think I've seen it done on you tube before, but I don't think it would work very well for constant notes, like metal players use the heel toe for. I think it takes too long to get set up for the...

I liked what BillRay said. There are good and bad sides to everything. We got to weigh it out for ourselves.

Re: 420 musicians onstage

This is the way I was in the late 70's. I wasn't right unless I was stoned. It was in 1980 that I quit. I bet I couldn't play at all, stoned now. Then I couldn't play(or anything else) unless I was...

Re: Gigged last night

Dr. Watso that made me laugh. I've always been a bit backwards.
Bo, the lights we used in the 80's would have warmed us up, these newer ones don't get that hot.
