Re: Let's Talk Snare Drums

I'll say. No holier grail than something that never existed in the first place.

The new ones are remarkably different. You can actually play one of them.

Re: Always out of breath, need to get my stamina up somehow.

Re: 16th note kick problems

A strong sense of deja-vu indeed.

But why in the name of god would you even need to mention................

Re: How to handle this situation

Why does protecting them mean "making something up"?

Why not just try to renegotiate YOUR OWN terms?

No need to mention the other guys or what they get paid at all. It doesn't even need to come up. Just simply say that you don't think you're being paid what you're worth and will look for...

Re: Is it safe to play songs that require a double kick pedal with just a single pedal?

If you can pull it off, go for it.

Things like Paradise City should be a breeze.....I've never heard it played with a double pedal anyway. It's single all the way AFAIK.

There will be so many...

Re: Got my 50th anniversary supra today!

Not that it negates your broader point, but as an aside I believe lug gaskets come on all metal Ludwig snares these days. Be it a limited anniversary run or not.

Whether or not they should be...

Re: Got my 50th anniversary supra today!

Yep. I'm willing to bet it's pretty much the sole reason for the use of the gaskets in the first place.

Nice drum. Enjoy!!

Re: Remo SilentStrokes and Gen16's. My review for apartment dwelling drummers.

Good review. Thanks.

I pretty much concur with your thoughts on the Silentstrokes. I bought some recently and have been very happy with them. A little "bouncy" perhaps, but nothing I have any...
