Re: Argument with Guitarist over time signature

Referring to 'those who' as 'douchey' (your words) means in a sense you ARE naming THEM as 'douches'. It's just not a decent way to get on with people.

Re: Used Mapex Pro M vs New Mapex Pro M Snare

get the the red one. red is a much faster colour. i also think the 2nd one is ...ugly.

more seriously, a 5.5 inches deep is also little more versatile than a 5 deep. I liek that depth and the red...

Re: Tom wood type comparison

Great question. I don't think they truly exist.

What people should perhaps prefer is a sound and make that sound theirs. If that sound is ash, so be it. If it be 3 ply, and 2 of the plies are...

Re: Argument with Guitarist over time signature

???? I don't think anybody on DW derides theory, and that wasn't the debate at all. You've got it all twisted.

You've turned it sour, now a sort of low brow name-calling, by wrongly referring to...

Re: Removing metal washers from tension rods

Damn, based on your post I did this yesterday and none in stock at 2 stores. I like nylon too.

Re: Stress fractures?

Isn't that why they call it "bone shattering heavy metal double-bass"?

Re: Argument with Guitarist over time signature

Have to say I miss these 'kinds' of exchanges on here from time to time....whether its time sigs, Ringo, coated vs. clear, Evans vs. Remo

They help exercise ones' conflict resolution skills.

Re: Pdp Concept Maple or Pearl Export

Sound ..is up to your ears. Quality, I'd say those kist are the same, mayeb the pdp has a little edge.
I'd choose the pdp if it were me, depending on the drum sizes offered, which matter.

Re: rare yamaha stage custom ive bought

If it sounds good... sure. Looks like brass to me, and likely to sound fine and versatiel fro many kinds of music.

Tune it up, play that thing and you can answer that question.

Re: First use of a click

I prefer the 'clave' sounding click, to a 'click' sound. The wood sounds very 'organic' not computerized.
Come to think of it, somebody should invent the 'sledgehmamer' click, you know.... the sound...

Re: Keeping time when no one else is...

As said on here once - " after the count-in the whole band keeps time". There is push and pull but somebody should not be consistently dragging. I am guessing its worse when no bassist there.

Re: First use of a click

That is not a click but 'claves' - wood sticks hit together, just like a cowbell, intentionally.

Re: Pain in my left wrist.

Hmmm, I wouldn't say Keith Moon wasn't a hard hitter at all, he was a butterfly allover the kit. Totally fluid player.

Re: Gretsch Renown Maple vs PDP Concept Maple

Again, it should be up to your ears. You need to listen to these and see what works for you, the drum sizes etc. If I recall, the Renown bass drum is 18" deep, not my cup of tea, but it may be yours....

Re: Types of Snare Drum

Ok, so for the same shell, but lighter lower mass lugs, what do you expect as the outcome in sound (all other factors the same)?

Re: Yamaha steel snares

I'd choose the Tama over that.
BUT I'd suggest you get a used steel snare. there are a lot out there, and some are a very good deal. Older Pearl steel shell snares ( called a 'Jupiter') with 10...

Re: Good deal?

great drums too, but pretty sure they have a deeper 18 x 22 bass drum. Not the greatest setup for a small jazz setting.

Re: Filling in badge holes on lacquered drums

not bolts, screws. one would not call a 2mm diameter screw a 'bolt'.
but i agree, if it were me i would leave these small holes empty.

Re: Filling in badge holes on lacquered drums

2 to 3 mm is pretty small. why not just get 4 nice screws, small heads and flat heads and screw them in?
Nobody will spot thsi from more than a meter away anyway.

the only other quick fix I can...
