Re: Serious drummer? (I think not ;)

The devil's in the detail :)

Fun indeed - thank you :)

Excellent advice! The audience really pick up on the smallest of things sometimes. Facial expressions is a big one.

Indeed - there's...

Serious drummer? (I think not ;)

The band had "one of those nights" last night. Gear issues (keyboards), multiple mistakes, etc, etc, so Andy went into fun mode. I always "play up" a bit on stage. The audience engage with that,...

Re: Get off your drummer's throne and

I think you mean quiet?

I'm ready to roll out for tonight's gig, & guess what, I'm not the only one :) Saturday's always peaceful here.

Re: Snare vs. Room

I acoustically remodel every room I play in to offer optimal snare sound. So much more satisfying that simply changing tuning ;)

Re: DIY Gong Drum

it's a combination of hoop isolation & head to edge orientation, but mostly the latter. There's a significant increase in head sustain. Think timpani.

Oooh - unctuous instrument with a multitude...

Re: Just Bought Complete Adult Set Cymbals Full Size

Welcome to the forum :)

I'm guessing by your thread title, that you're a younger player starting out. Why do you think the cymbals will dent? Even if they are very cheap / thin cymbals, you...

Re: Oops!

Indeed! I have one of those thin diamond TCT blades, & it got through each side of the shank in seconds. Alarmingly fast actually :(

Re: Oops!

No, & I have an extensive tool selection too. The barrel was rotated slightly, & wouldn't return, thus locking the remaining portion of the key in the lock. I didn't have time to mess around...

Re: Oops!

Done! Angle grinder with cutting disc to the rescue. It wouldn't have been an issue anyhow, I mean, the trailer only has the PA, lights, monitors in it. Drums are all in...

Re: Tuning with those big round bearing edges

This is a common issue with thinner ply shells & rounded edges. With sharper edges, part of the near field "resonance" you're hearing is actually head sustain, & head sustain is near useless in an...

Re: Sometimes, it all becomes so worthwhile :)

In terms of audio representation, that's effectively what many drum companies have been doing with their videos for years!

Re: DIY Gong Drum

Funny coincidence, I was just discussing gong drums with Jeff, Larry, & Rich the other week ;)

First up Jim - major props on the stain job. You have a great eye. Given the different absorption...

Re: Sometimes, it all becomes so worthwhile :)

Thanks Jeff :)

As for players using a variety of instruments in the studio compared to their endorsement deal, I know of businesses that make a living out of providing exactly that studio service....

Sorry, but addition of cat & change to sparkly dress does not constitute "substantially different" under the competition rules (as interpreted by me ;), so you will have to choose. To help you in...

Re: Musikmesse 2015

Booth floor space alone must have cost in excess of $40,000, so I hate to think what the total cost was. You need serious margins & volumes to put up this kind of booth.

I'm currently looking at...
