Re: Can you identify this Acrolite?

I live in a pretty small area. Craigslist usually doesn't pan out unless I want to travel 2 hours+. Are there any great online places to pick up an Acrolite for a great price?

Re: Anyone ever compete in the GC drum off?

This year will be the third time I have done it. I've had a good time every time, but i've always been disappointed. I was hoping to be able to interact with some other drummers and "talk drums", see...

Re: Looking for snare recommendations

Thanks for the comments everyone. Due to budgetary concerns (and my fear of not using my trusted DW brass), I am going to go with a Ludwig Supralite 6.5x14. It seems like a solid choice. The 402...

Re: Looking for snare recommendations

I did some research on a LM400 and the LM402. The LM402 sounds amazing. It is really what I am going for. I would also be interested in a LM404, just not sure where I can find it for around $100. I...

Accuracy

Does anyone have any recommended exercises or books for accuracy?

After my most recent head changes, I notice that my accuracy isn't as tight as I want it to be. Ideally, I would have a small...

Looking for snare recommendations

I have had a DW Collector's edition brass snare for about 12 years now as my main snare, and I am looking for something different.

I am not wanting to stick with a brass snare. I am looking to...

Re: I've lost that feeling?

I've had this feeling before. It will pass. I took a two year break at one point, but when the feeling hit, it hit. I wanted to get back into the swing of things. I ended up joining a few groups and...

Re: Where do you buy your DVD's?

I honestly buy DVDs and books at the cheapest place (usually amazon, ebay). I'm all for supporting local business, but the nearest Guitar Center or store with a decent drum selection is 90 miles away.

Re: How long does it take you to set up?

it takes me approximately forever to set up my kit. I have a 7 piece kit with 4 cymbals and hats, and it literally seems to take forever to setup like I want it :)

Re: Tim Waterson Here!

I didnt actually meant that you "slam" it, thats just the way I said it. I can tell that you let your foot fall naturally. Is that a pretty easy motion or does it take some time to master?

Re: Beginner Death Metal Drum Help Please

The most important thing is to not get overly stressed when you don't see instant progress. I've been playing death metal for about 5 years. I feel that my hands are very developed for speed, etc....

Re: 8" tom tuning issue?

Same here. I use EC2 Clear's across all toms (including the 8). I also tune my higher and get a lovely sound with nice sustain.

It's all good my man. Your method would work wonderfully as well. I was just going to throw another option out there :)
