Re: Mic'n: Rock/Pop vs Jazz

Most engineers will mic for the application, not according to genre. However, it is typical for more of the kit sound to be driven via the overheads compared to close mix's. All depends on venue &...

Re: Trusting others with your kit?

Only if I know the player/players extremely well, and/or I have a strong level of control/veto.

I'm playing a pretty big gig in October, & so I can use my own gear, plus a request from the...

Re: The matching snare

Not wishing to get into a pissing contest, but I have to agree with Duncan's assertion on this one. I meet many drummers, hundreds of them each year, & the number that are clueless about sounds &...

Re: Your midweek smile :)

I love this little guy! Anyone notice how easily he slips into syncopation? That's rare in a little chap this age.

Re: Negative Progress / Quitting

I'm "getting worse" too, have been for a while, yet strangely, I'm playing what I can play better. My gig performances continue to improve. I'm not stretching myself technically, & that allows me...

Re: Crap

It could have been so much worse - it could have been me ;) ;) ;)

Yup, if it's really clean, then superglue is your friend. I used it decades ago, & hospitals used to frown on it. Now they use...

Re: Simon Philips playing jazz

Count me in as a "somebody" :)

Chris, nice discussion point example, & welcome to the forum. Great to see that rascal Abe here too :)

Regrettably, I'm grossly under qualified to comment on the...

Re: Played my first Gig last night.

Mitch, the comments from other players tell me immediately that these guys know what they're doing, & have their priorities sorted out - refreshing. Congratulations on getting a welcome boost, &...

Re: Name that rhythm

Derek knows his stuff, so I'm inclined to go with his wisdom :)

Re: The old Pearl Exports??

Well yes, on 1.6mm hoops, it's just asking for it :(

I can't speculate as to the reasons why those edges were so bad, but to balance out your theory, amongst the worst edges I've seen this year...

Re: Name that rhythm

Larry, I'd love you to do a "show & tell" on shuffles. I suck royally at shuffles (although I can manage most simple forms). Something I really would like time to work on - one day :(

I'd also...

Re: The old Pearl Exports??

Agree on both counts (three if you include swearing ;).

My son has those ISS (Isolation still sucks) mounts on his Vision kit. Aside from the truly terrible bearing edges on that kit, the mounts...

Re: bass drum depth

I'd much rather the bass drum sounds like a cannon than looks like one ;)

Re: Some Pearl Reference Pure porn ;)

I played a set a while back Larry. Very nice drums indeed, with typical thin shell characteristics to the smaller toms, & a subtle boost to upper lows on the floor toms & bass drum. Well balanced,...

Re: Name that rhythm

I remember that thread very well. One of the really low points of the forum, but mainly down to a very personal reaction from Ken. I still don't understand Ken's reaction, it must have touched a...

Re: The old Pearl Exports??

Exports - the drums that changed the whole drum building landscape back in the day. Original models are best IMO. The mounts pictured are just horrible. I'd much rather the original "through the...

Re: Some Pearl Reference Pure porn ;)

How do you find moving on & off the hats Bo, especially 16th/24th note or other patterns with backbeats using both hands?

Re: The matching snare

Lugs help too :)

Correct, so long as they don't exhibit serious faults. Regrettably,...
