Re: Mahogany, Birch or Acrylic?

Can't spend anymore then 1000, and believe me, here in the UK, it is so hard to find companies that actually produce 26" bass drums. I have managed to find an acrylic kit and a mahogany for LESS...

Re: kick

Justin Foley - Drummer of Killswitch Engage.
He first joined the band with a 22" bass drum. And it shrunk. He still uses a double bass pedal on it and it sounds incredibly punchey!

Should we compare ourselves to other drummers.

It is fair to say we all have our influences and we follow our influences, and begin to adapt our style. After going on youtube then searching anything drum related and you then find someone who has...

Re: Drum trigging sounds

Sometimes drummers download sounds from sample libraries. You can get online samples, or just produce them yourself (using midi and various software.)

Re: accoustic < digital

Re: Best Recording Programme For PC

Sony Sound Forge looks great, I'm looking at the details it says '5.1 sound for DVD's', but can you still use 5.1 sound for CD playback?
