Re: 2014 Snare Drum Olympics - The/our results!

Way to go Andy! Out of the 3 winning drums shown, the Guru outclasses the other 2 by a large margin. I hate to say it because they look so beautiful....and they sound so woody on toms...but for the...

Re: Sonor Safari or Bop

Another vote for the Players kit. 20 x 12 is a great bass drum size. It seems really small, like a toy set, but it sounds pro. The wrap looks way classier than it's price suggests. I can fit myself...

Re: Who does this, really?

I've done about 350 gigs since going caseless. That's a lot of packing and unpacking. That's about 58 hours of work figuring 10 minutes a gig to unpack, store cases, retrieve cases and repack. 58...

Re: Who does this, really?

Cases complicate things too much for me. Not worth my time. My gig drums cost me less than 500. They serve me, I serve the music.

I will say that the only real damage I've suffered for the last...

Re: Putting band name on kick drum head, with multiple bands?

Get a white coated ambassador. It's like a movie screen. Project band name on it with a projector. Not too serious about that.

Vinyl clingys are probably the best way to go. Circular sheets of...

Re: Band members with bad timing

I thought it was a band situation too. Yea, not much you can do there. You have the right attitude. Keep going. You're learning a crap ton of stuff. The best thing you can do in that situation is...

Re: Band members with bad timing

That's the key word right there, flow. An even flow feels so good. Not a jerky flow. A smooth pour. It's really meter, but flow is a much more human way to think of it.

I saw a band do Charlie...

Re: Band members with bad timing

Record your sessions and try to get then to listen back and discuss. If the person in question hears for themselves...it might be easier to deal with. Perhaps try and plant the notion that musical...

Re: I think I'm losing it

Or you could experiment with finding just the right amount of helium to suck in every so often.

Plus here's always autotune. Getting close is good enough.

Sorry. Trying to think outside the...

Re: Drums suck!

Wow Barry epic post. Andy what you say makes sense in real world applications. I have to try and see if I hear a difference with soft hits now.

This is some complicated physical behavior being...

Re: Special Bubinga

The tone of that drums really tics my boxes. Beautiful work man. The lugs are something. The whole drum is something. Great tone. Much respect.

Are you keeping it or selling?

Madge I totally get that you were in a bit of a shock when you encountered this. I guess that's a good thing because it means you don't encounter it all the time. But yes, in the future, if you are...

Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

Fletcher's is one of the 2 extremes it seems. The other being "everybody gets a trophy" mindset. While Fletcher's tactics can motivate certain people, I find that most people do better when they are...

Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

I wanted to hear people's opinions as to whether or not Fletcher's teaching style, if it was real life, was something he should have got kicked out for.

I also wondered what people think of the...

Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

It's been out over a month. I saw it last night. Wouldn't mind discussing some of the finer points with people who have already seen it, but I don't want to spoil it for anyone either.

So is it OK?

Re: Drums suck!

When I put my finger over the vent hole of a drum, then strike it, why don't I hear any difference? The science may say this and that, but if I can't hear a dif, it means nothing. Right?

Re: Really, was this planned...?

Those drums are worth more boxed up and unusable than opened and usable.

One could argue that you sell a box of first act drums disguised as a collectible drumset. If you opened it, you'd ruin...

Re: Pulled the trigger on a set of Gretsch New Classics!

Why did you pass on that deal again? Guilt? What a useless, damaging and manipulative emotion.

With all due respect to you and your wife, I have to completely disagree with your decision. I...

Re: Snare Cord - What Knot?

Unless you have a P-83, who uses knots? The clamp thingys on the strainer and the butt strap plate holds my straight snare strings. Straight snare strings. Try saying THAT 3x fast.

Re: Yamaha Live Custom Oak - opinions?

I don't know how Steve plays with bracelets and neck chains. I for sure would catch my sticks in them. I love what he says. Very deep and intelligent man.
