Its a good name, hi hat machine. Some drummers are indeed a real 'machine' on their hi hats.

Re: The false perception of Luan

It's not the wood it's the drum, and there's far more to the drum than the wood.

No really, when I hear them in drum shops, some e-kits don't sound too bad, but they look so lame on stage. Just nothing aesthetically...

Re: I've got the "looper" blues

Same here. Not all guitarists 'hit the button' at the right moment... so the looper can at times eventually play out of sync with the band...which of course the looper doesn't give a damn about.

Re: How do I get this weird sound? Simon and Garfunkel's "The Boxer"

Yes a sample would sound great. As its a live show, if you don't want to do that I would think a loud trashy china would work. If you don't have on of those, than a cymbal stack could do.

Re: Completely out of touch old fart irrelevant opinion - but,

ahhhhh.... the most poignant piece on this thread. :)

I'm no fan of electronic music either but somebody's doing it and power to them, as an art form or an income.

Re: Conflicted on whether to join a band.

I say go with people who will make you 'play up' and bring your best out. Band#2 appears the choice. Your text is gushing about that one, while Band#1 sounds tentative and not very satisfactory for...

Re: 9X13 floor tom? Sensible?

I'd say wait for the right 14 floor tom. Its up to you but nice to have a good deeper note down there on the floor. A 13 just isn't it, and not much separation from the 12 from pitchwise.

Re: Buddy Rich

Buddy Rich is a great drummer, probably the best ever. Superb to watch and listen to.
I would not have wanted to work for Buddy. Even if I played sax in his big band, and he didn't bawl me out, I...

Re: Bass drum and double hitting

Do you bury the beater or let it rebound? Ported or unported head? This is more common unported.
Letting the beater come off avoids double-hits. So its technique but also higher spring tension...
