Re: Is Tama a Bad Company?

I don't just shut down when talking with somebody who is difficult to understand, due to ESL reasons or simply a heavy accent. If I'm genuinely interested in something, I don't allow the difficulty...

Re: xylophone beginners questions

That instrument is meant for a primary school ensemble. As a musician, you will probably want a chromatic instrument, at least 2 octaves, but 3 if you can swing it. I mean, would you be happy...

Re: Is Tama a Bad Company?

Man, what's with all of the "I just couldn't bear to read it" responses? Have ya'll been on the internet so long that you have NO attention span left? That's my take away from this thread. For...

Re: Singers dragging the tempo

It depends who is "leading" the song. If the singer is leading the song, which often happens, perhaps they are slowing it down for a reason, and you should go with them. If the guitarist or...

Re: Is Tama a Bad Company?

They were a good company making good products until the late 80s. Then, what you read in that thread started happening.

Re: Poll: do you double bass?

I used to play double bass and played music that used it extensively. I've since switched musical paths, and I finally sold my two double pedals last year, and I'm probably not going to look back.

Re: It's the room not the kit !

I think the room for the drummers is like the room, or maybe the stage, for the guitarists/bassists.

Re: What drummers need for a gig

Yes, those keychain drum keys are real life-savers, in the instances where you accidentally drop your drum key on a dark stage. Also, there are these little LED keychain flashlights you can get for,...

Re: Spousal Static - A mini Rant

Unfortunately, I agree. It's not the situation, exactly, but the way it's being talked about. Lots of explaining of HIS position while putting down HER position. Not good.

It sounds like you...

Re: Pacific Northwest drummers' thread

Re: Musically, what are you involved with at the present?

Nice try.

5 bands currently. World music, African, pop/rock cover band, 20s-40s jazz, and classical. All kinds of instrumentation from strings and horns to guitars and keyboards. There is a...

Re: Is it just me?

I think people are just looking for that end-all "perfect" set of cymbals that will sound like whatever they want them to sound like. To some people a cymbal is a cymbal, and they can get by with...

Re: Biggest problem with a sub, or new band member?

It also depends on the instrument you're playing, and who is subbing. I find that subbing as a drummer is the easiest of the duties. *Usually* there is another player (usually the bass or guitar...

Re: Biggest problem with a sub, or new band member?

I've seen several subs trainwreck before. You've got to know the PARTS, first and foremost. If you don't play a part that the rest of the band is comfortable with (not necessarily the original, but...

Re: What's On Your Shopping List?

"I'll know it when I see it."

I'm always on the lookout for 50s A Zildjians and 90s K Zildjians. Oh, and a DW Acoustic EQ snare is on the wanted list as well--I've always wanted to tinker with...

Re: Do they make....

I used a Dr. Beat in college to do this. It has the capability to program 8 separate "counts" in a row. You could program "ONE two three ONE two ONE two..." pretty easily. You could also program...

3. Packed and ready to go, soon to be headed for the next pit in 2 weeks.

Re: A Question To Those That Collect A Number Of Drum Kits

...um, you lost me there.

It's not a matter of "need," really. Heck, if we wanted to borrow/rent drums kits for gigs, we could probably hustle that. Or, why not just play buckets? Or a...

Re: Tastefully Overplayed

Yes, I would consider that song one where the drummer "overplays" his part, but it's also tasteful because his part interlocks with the rest of the song. The song would be less interesting if the...

Re: it hurts and that is why I am posting

I agree. My thinking is that if your hand is hitting the rim, the drum is too close to you for where you naturally want to play. If you're hitting the rim with the sticks it's too high. If you're...

Re: Bass drum pillow talk: Keeping it down

When most people start out playing drums, they want a drum sound that sounds close to what they are familiar with, and that's usually a "quick, low punch, with no sustain." It's easy to simulate...

Re: Bass drum pillow talk: Keeping it down

I was going to say something along these lines. :)

I'm REALLY not a fan of pillows and how they eat up all the tone from a drum. The closest I get to ruining a bass drum sound anymore is...

Re: Doubles with Cross Stick

The motion for doing quick double cross sticks is the same as doing quick double strokes--two quick strokes. The difference for me, however, is that with double strokes, I do a wrist stroke and then...

Re: Drummerworld Dictionary

Make sure you rotate your greens. If you have nothing but kale in your smoothies, it will start making you feel bad in the long run. I found this out the hard way, myself. All of the "healthy...
