Re: Dave Tough & George Wettling Gloriously Restored

I just received this set last week and am thoroughly enjoying it. I have a bunch of Mosaic sets and find them to be the stars in my collection.

Re: Gretsch New Classic review

Nice review. Glad you like them.

I have a bop kit I like. Never had trouble with the 5.5x14 NC snare, but I've spent a ton of time with other Gretsch snares prior. May or may not have anything...

Re: How to naturally play quieter?

This isn't a "gear" issue. Nothing - sticks, drums or cymbals.....

Already been stated though - more than once.

This is 100% a how rather than a what issue.

Re: Tuning a Gretsch tom

Actually, I find it the easiest drum to tune.

Use whatever tool gets you to where you want to be and makes you happy.

Re: Ludwig Breakbeats Review

I did something similar but I used a piece of Moleskin.

Overall the drums make a super handy / cheap light practice kit.

I mount my ride using a boom arm on the bass drum tom mount so it's even...

Re: Jazz Drumming, and its benefits for rock

I think there's a benefit to exposing yourself to all styles. Play the music - melding them all together - extract what you like and and eventually you have your own voice.

Re: Elementary jazz question about accenting on the ride

This a million times over!

Jazz has absolutely nothing to do with patterns/parts that are repetitive or written in stone. It's against the very nature of the root of the music which is...

Steve is closing our Jazz Fest this year and they're pitching it as a 70th celebration since it's at the school he graduated from.

Re: Loud drums

To me, the player makes the sound. Volume, touch, control, technique, etc.... All on the shoulders of the player.

Tone comes from head / tuning / shells. But the way in which that tone is...

Don't necessarily agree with this

Both are pro-level but both a little different. I wouldn't let the fact that they are NOT Gretsch USA matter. Both/all top shelf...

Re: What was the first concert you went to????

That I can recall as a young kid, probably around 7, my dad took me to see a jazz quartet: Lionel Hampton, Teddy Wilson, Louis Bellson, Ray Brown. I was too young to recall much of it, but I recall...

I posted a similar type thread on a different forum about myself. I wasn't really looking for an answer to solve my problem, more from a question standpoint of "what do you do"?

Completely and totally agree on both of these posts.
