Re: Is live music dead?

So I guess we are all going the way of the typewriter repairman, the TV antennae installer, video stores, the milkman, and other near extinct occupations.

Might as well just quit now lol, the...

Re: Tips on Ghost Notes.

I employ a tactic where I hit almost all the notes on the snare fairly soft, except the backbeat. I use the rim for the backbeat and no rim for the rest of the ghost notes. The beauty part I found is...

Re: Real Life Whiplash

That would make a good sign to hang up by the drums.

No splatter on the batter.

Re: Is live music dead?

What would happen if the economy was all of a sudden really great, for years, and people had cash to spend.

Would live music make a comeback?

Gosh I sure would like to think so.

Great to see...

Re: The Snare Wires General Info Thread

It is hard finding a subject that hasn't already been run into the dirt here lol.

If there was a needle in the haystack award, this would qualify.

Also, I'm ashamed to admit that only within...

Re: What makes a pro kit?

To me a pro drummer is all about the playing. Any hack can do a gig and make a few bucks and justifiably call themselves a pro.

A person has to be able to play at a certain level before I consider...

Re: What makes a pro kit?

In the larger picture, Tony is right. But I think Mr. Lee was talking about the actual nuts and bolts of an expensive kit vs an affordable kit in this case.

You may not think of yourself as a pro...

What makes a pro kit....

The thread title could also read:

Why pay 3 grand for a kit when everything I could possibly need can be had with an 800 dollar kit?

Re: What makes a pro kit?

The semi pro kits of today far exceed the pro kits of the 60's and 70's. Rogers may be an exception.

Now the vintage sound is a whole other discussion.

But as far as round shells, true edges,...

Re: What makes a pro kit?

IDK, all the "semi pro" kits I've had were every bit as good as a "pro" kit.

These days the majority of kits under 800 will do anything the really expensive kits will.

Are PDP CX drums...

Re: Real Life Whiplash

Ewww Jim, that's disgusting. Do you really need to ask what to do with it?

I never provided sticks. That's the one thing I insisted they have if they wanted to play my beautiful DW kit. (hosted a...

Re: The Snare Wires General Info Thread

Wow this is a great topic and I don't know how I missed it. I wish I could add something to the discussion, but I never really gave snare wires too much thought, and never did a lot of experimenting.

Re: Advice please?

As WhoIs? would say, just shut up and play. That particular combination of people will either work, or it won't. I'd say don't ask a lot of questions, don't do a lot of talking, unless they obviously...

Re: Fantastic Peter Erskine video

Peter is so centered. It was interesting and a bit of a relief to hear he normally only "transcends" in a group setting.

The graduation story was cool too. Musicians have such great stories.

Has anyone read the book "The Wrecking Crew"?

I found this book very entertaining. I relate to it because it was the music that helped shape me in my formative years.

I wanted to see who read it and if there were any favorite parts.

I can relate. When I get a new set of drums, I usually go through a period in the beginning where it's as if I never tuned before, and I get lousy results. Not all drums. Some drums. Only when I...

People definitely respond to encouragement. Fletcher's character obviously doesn't agree with that line of thinking, and that's part of what made him, him.

IMO the movie makers wanted the...
