Re: Notching out the character

It's nobody's goal to make drums sound generic, worse, or whatever. And musicians that view an engineer's input as some sort of personal affront, are just not seeing the big picture.

First, it...

Re: Reso head or open bottom???

It's always about the miking. It doesn't much matter what the drums sound like to your ear from behind the kit, or in front of it. What matters is what the mic hears when it's 2" from the head, or...

Re: Miking demo. What do you think?

Sounds great as a kit on its own (toms are a little thin IMO.)

But once you start to mix the track, you'll be making balance and EQ changes you haven't anticipated. It will be more revealing to...

Re: Roland SPD-SX / multi uses?

Simply plug the pedal into one of the trigger inputs and assign the song to that, which leaves the nine pads to play other samples.

Re: You won't believe what Andy did

This is quite a coincidence... a cross-dressing buddy of mine (on another drum forum) was talking about this lovely English bloke he met on a plane, someone named Andrew.

Heh, small world.

Re: Ludwig Legacy Mahogany?

Undoubtedly they'll be less expensive, and if original, will also come with brass hoops! :)

But... keep in mind the potential issues of a kit that's around 55 years old, such as, how are the...

Re: My personal list of rock and roll's top cowbell moments

I can forgive you for overlooking The Beatles "Everybody's Got Something To Hide" with cowbell 16ths running through most of the song, but how could you forget BJ Wilson on Procol Harum's "Power...

Re: Thanks Bo!

I think we met right here on Drummerworld, and being able to see some videos certainly helped cement the deal! I believe I also met Tom Coyne through this forum. Between the two of you, I always know...

Thanks Bo!

Once again, Bo Eder will be subbing for me with the Zero G Band while I traipse around the world with Weird Al. Here we are at a refresher rehearsal, with Bo sounding great as usual!

Thanks again,...

Re: The Trap Set podcast... with me!

Thanks, and believe me, it did start as a much longer interview. Joe skillfully (and mercifully) edited it into a much more digestible half hour! :)

Re: Ludwig Legacy Mahogany?

I played the kit at NAMM, and they've faithfully recaptured the classic '50/60s sound. I've got a '59 transition kit - basically, the originals - otherwise I'd definitely get the new ones!

The Trap Set podcast... with me!

This new site is cool, with a burgeoning library of podcasts featuring players such as Ndugu, Jeff "Tain" Watts, Mike Clark, and more. I'm in good company! This was recorded a few months before we...

Re: How To Promote Self For Future Opportunities ?

Let me clarify a little, I'm not suggesting that a jam is a place to go wild (although some attenders treat it that way.) On the contrary, it's smart to treat a jam like an audition. Play the way you...

Re: Stevie Wonder - Superstition

Pretty much everyone plays it straight with a hip-hoppy hi-hat, which is fine. But if you listen to the original carefully, you'll hear that the kick starts doing a 16th, almost hip-hop push into the...

Re: Loud drums

I find that there are differences that make one drum - a snare in particular - sound louder than another, even when struck in the same manner. Those differences are usually manifested though attack,...

GREAT jam in Hollywood!

I was invited a few times by Ace Frehley drummer Matt Starr to stop by a recently started all-star jam in Hollywood. I said I was going on Wednesday, and was contacted by co-organizer Chuck Wright...

Re: How To Promote Self For Future Opportunities ?

Networking is key. In this business, it's not who you know... it's who knows you. That applies at every level of making music.

Probably the easiest, no-pressure, most comfortable way to get your...

Re: New Ludwig Snare

And the Keystone edge. It undoubtedly sounds like a Keystone, and they make those sizes and more in that line. So, other than the lugs, I wonder what's 'different' about this?

Re: Tricks for faster set up

I'm not sure that a cymbal could jump off the post, but assuming it was able to work its way up, the 'tabs' at the top prevent it from sliding off. Placing/removing the cymbal involves a slight shift...

Re: Tricks for faster set up

I keep my stands at their full height so I don't have to adjust or attach tubes. Cymbal toppers also save time and avoid the inevitable aggravation of dropped/lost wingnuts. Never had one snap or...
